Florida is used to hurricanes. Names like Francis, Charlie, Ivan, Wilma, Hermine, Andrew aren’t just for kids. But earlier this month, the state was confronted with a different type of storm named Irma. At her peak, she was a dangerous Category Five storm that threatened the entire state, from the Keys to the Panhandle. And it triggered the evacuation of more than a third of Floridians from their homes. Florida Public Radio stations from across the state came together to cover the impacts to their local community and tonight on It’s About Florida, we hear from Floridians across the state on how they weathered Hurricane Irma.
