The Young Women's Christian Association or YWCA of Syracuse, along with churches and other community groups in the area, have been working to help the people of Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria hit the island in September. Some Puerto Ricans, displaced by the hurricane, have made their way to Syracuse, to stay with family and friends and start new lives.

After Hurricane Maria, Dorothy Huertas and her husband, who live in Syracuse, received a call from a friend they have known for 20 years, Jorge Luis Rodriguez Malave, who lives in Puerto Rico.

The most devastating hurricane in American history was not named Katrina or Sandy, but was a storm that struck Galveston, Texas in 1900. TV weatherman Al Roker has written a book about this storm, the people caught in it, and the lessons that were learned from it. Roker recently returned to his alma mater SUNY Oswego and spoke with WRVO's Catherine Loper about his new book "Storm of the Century.”

In the wake of Hurricane Isabel, John Weeks discusses how the aftermath of a storm can provide opportunity despite devastation. Nature always makes the necessary adjustments after a natural disaster, begging the question of whether these events are really disasters at all.
