Episode 133

For those of you who are hurricane buffs like us, you know where they tend to form and where they track: they either are born from a tropical wave off Africa and cross through the Caribbean OR form within the Caribbean or Gulf of Mexico. In these areas, there is a much higher population of people who speak only Spanish while the majority of the products that the National Hurricane Center puts out are in English. This puts a lot of pressure on our bilingual meteorologists in the community, like my guest today, to communicate the science accurately and quickly. I’m (virtually) sitting down with Nelly Carreño from Univision in Dallas Fort Worth to discuss these challenges and what changes can be made for the future.
