This week we're talking about the consequences of Hurricane Irma, and lessons learned from the storm.

What lessons have you learned from your experience during Hurricane Irma? And what would you like to see your community do differently for the next storm? Share your thoughts on our Facebook page, on Twitter or by emailing FloridaMatters@wusf.org.  

I cover health care for WUSF and the statewide journalism collaborative Health News Florida. I’m passionate about highlighting community efforts to improve the quality of care in our state and make it more accessible to all Floridians. I’m also committed to holding those in power accountable when they fail to prioritize the health needs of the people they serve.
Robin Sussingham was Senior Editor at WUSF until September 2020.
