Wicked Weather 06: Hurricane Floyd

Throughout this season, the WRAL Doc Podcast has talked about the destruction that follows Wicked Weather and the impact a single storm can have. But what happens when it isn't just one storm, but two separate weather events mere weeks apart, setting the stage for unprecedented destruction? That's the situation surrounding one of the most infamous and talked-about hurricanes in North Carolina history: Floyd. This week, we look back at the record-breaking storm and how changes in flood mapping hope to prevent such a disaster from ever happening again. This episode features appearances by Greg Fishel, Jeff Orrock, Bill Leslie, Jimmy Tickel, Joe Rudek, Scott Stephens, Sam Knight, Delia Perkins, John Dorman, Mark Brown and Fred Turnage.
