Saturday, September 13, 2008. Twenty years ago today, Hurricane Gilbert became the most intense hurricane ever measured in the western hemisphere. I talk about Gilbert, its intensity, path, and effects. I also add some thoughts of my own about the people who live and work in the paths of tropical cyclones.
As this podcast goes out, Hurricane Ike is wreaking havoc on the coast of Texas and Louisiana. If you can spare a few dollars to help the many thousands of people gravely affected by this storm, I'd encourage you to take a few minutes and make a donation to the American Red Cross or other disaster relief agency of your choice.
Our theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.
