“Florence’s Path is Strewn with Toxic Hazards”

The New York Times posted an article yesterday which described some of the different hazardous sites in the path of Hurricane Florence, including superfund sites, coal ash ponds and hog farms. A lot of these are now under attack from Florence’s winds, rain and floods. Spillage from the sites could contaminate a wide area and present dangers to those who are trying to recover from the storm. You can see maps of the sites and read more about it at https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/09/13/climate/hurricane-florence-environmental-hazards.html.
