The news cameras are now chasing the latest breaking story somewhere in the world. What's left are five to six island countries that bear the deep scars from the ravages of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.  One island country was completely destroyed. Some of the others will need rebuilt infrastructures, community assistance, and TLC for years to come.

In that latter category desperately in need is Dominica who felt the brunt of Category 5 Hurricane Maria on September 18th. They weren't even back on their feed from Tropical Story Erica that hit the island in 2015. Now the need is greater than ever.

Today's show will help you assess what happened to Dominica and what 's being done to bring back its communities, housing stock, and the overall economy.  Dominica is a different island nation from the Dominican Republic, but equally important when it comes to the cleanup efforts now underway.  We'll talk to two leaders of the ex-pat community from Dominica to find out what happened and how you can help.
