RESIDENTS STILL DEALING WITH AFTERMATH OF FLORENCE AS MICHAEL APPROACHES

 

Even as Hurricane Michael promises to inundate the eastern seaboard, residents in parts of North Carolina continue to struggle with the aftermath of Hurricane Florence last month.

KBOO reporter Yasemin Cobanoglu spoke yesterday with Vanessa Bolin, a community organizer and indigenous artist and activist who is currently in Lumberton, a city of 21,000 people in Robeson County, North Carolina, with the group Mutual Aid Disaster Relief.

You can hear the full version of this interview tomorrow on KBOO Evening News In-Depth at 5:45pm.
