Share Your Hurricane Irma Story With WLRN

Sep 9, 2017

Thank you for staying with us as we covered Hurricane Irma. Our team spoke with some of you at shelters, on the streets and at your homes. You called in when we were live on the radio for 31 hours, asked us great questions and told us what you saw around you. You tweeted at us and shared your stories on Facebook.

Now, we want to hear from you again: tell us how you're doing and what you're dealing with.

What's happened around your neighborhood? If you evacuated — maybe you were on the road, or taking cover in a shelter — what do you remember seeing around you? Where did you go? How did you pass the time?

We know that things have and will continue to be chaotic. Only if it's possible and safe for you do so, we'd love for you to share your experiences with us — so we can share it with our listeners and readers. Your responses might be used on-air or online.

Let us know how you're doing whichever way is most convenient for you:

  • Fill out the form below. 
  • Email with what you're observing. Feel free to send us images you've taken. Include your first and last name, where you live, where you currently are, and the best way to get in touch. We might reach out.
  • Call (305) 396-1273 and leave a brief voicemail telling us how you're doing and what you're dealing with. Be sure to tell us your first and last name, where you live and where you currently are. We might call you back to have you on our air. Please note: This is not an emergency help line. If you're having an emergency, please call 311.

We appreciate your help — stay safe. If you need to get in touch with us, you can tweet at us at @WLRN, or email us at
