About This Show
WeatherHype is a podcast started by two besties who love weather and its connections to people every single day. We wanted to provide an avenue where we could talk about important weather-related stories and educate listeners in a very informal, unstructured way, all while getting a little side-tracked and having some fun too!

Episode 15: Hurricane Matthew: A Personal Perspective
From the days leading up to the storm's impact on the Georgia coast, meteorologists all around the southeast were already gearing up for what would be one of the most dangerous hurricanes in recent memory. A mandatory evacuation order was issued for all coastal county areas east of Interstate 95, prompting a mass exodus inland away from the water. Minh and his family hunkered down for the storm miles inland away where they were safe from the storm surge. But they weren't safe from the strong winds that whipped across the region. Hurricane Matthew lashed the Coastal Georgia, leaving a trail of destruction behind. Thousands of large trees fell all over the area, and power was knocked out to hundreds of thousands of people. Minh offers his personal perspective from the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew and sheds light on the insight from others who experienced Matthew's fury. While the damage to Savannah and the coast of Georgia and South Carolina was extensive, many know that the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry dodged a major bullet. The fact however remains that the clean-up and restoration of services will take weeks to return to normal.
