Road Trip

WNYT has dispatched Benita Zahn, along with a photographer and producer, to the Gulf Coast for a close-up look at the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. They travelled south in a caravan that included a crew from Rochester sister station WHEC, a satelite truck, and an RV crammed with botteled water, food, and supplies. The crew will be filing reports from in and around Gulfport, Mississippi, which has become a major jumping off point for media covering the story; you can keep up with the latest on their trip in a blog posted on the stations website.
