    Before Hurricane Irma hit land, Florida Gov. Rick Scott urged more than 6 million of the state's residents to evacuate their homes and get out of harm's way. But many people within the Latino community who only speak Spanish, or are undocumented, avoided official shelters, instead relying on their neighbors and churches for support. NewsHour Weekend’s Ivette Feliciano reports on the challenges.

  • Less than half of Florida homeowners have flood insurance
    Across Florida’s coastal counties, where Hurricane Irma bore down on Sunday, only 42 percent of homeowners have flood insurance, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. One reason for the gap is the high cost of government's national flood insurance program, which is set to expire this month. Suzanne Barlyn, who has reported on the issue for Reuters, joins Hari Sreenivasan.
