Journalists in Florida Aren’t Just Covering Hurricane Ian—They’re Living It

From The Poynter Report with Tom Jones:

Covering a monster of a hurricane with catastrophic winds and a life-threatening storm surge is challenging, stressful and scary for any journalist.

Now imagine covering that story while worrying if that same storm is going to wipe out your home and endanger your family.

That’s what journalists in Florida — especially near where powerful Hurricane Ian made landfall — went through last week. Ian wasn’t just a story to cover. It was a storm to live through. It was a storm that threatened their lives, the lives of their family and friends and the place they call home.
