Daily Miscellany


I’ve managed online news coverage of hurricanes while working with newspapers in two states and my recommendation is to hit the local sites for the most up to date and accurate coverage. The local reporters know the area, have the best contacts and have a better understanding of the storm’s impact. Even the best national news sites get the details wrong and lack perspective.

Here is the Tampa Bay Times, the Fort Myers News-Press and the Orlando Sentinel. I also recommend searching Google for local TV stations in the area you are interested in. They’ll have better human interest stories that are missed by the national media.
