Hurricane Florence is now a Category 1 storm, but she's still powerful and dangerous.
In my almost 30 years as a reporter, I've covered every kind of natural disaster -- expect for hurricanes. You name it, I've seen it or been in it -- wildfires, earthquakes, mudslides, tornadoes. But never a hurricane. Frankly, they scare me. I'm not a swimmer, so water freaks me out. A storm surge of 10 feet or more would probably give me a heart attack.
Have you ever been through a hurricane? What was it like?
