Episode 4: Hurricane Matthew

This October, Fernandina Beach residents lived through the most powerful storm that the island has seen in years. Local hurricane hero, Chad Bridges and former Mayor, Johnny Miller, talk with Christy and Tarah about their unique perspectives during the storm. Chad Bridges stayed behind, posting video and picture updates for those who chose to evacuate. As Mayor, Johnny Miller helped the area navigate through the worst natural disaster of our lifetime. A special thank you to all of the first responders who worked hard to bring residence back to the island as quickly and safely as possible.
