One of those cliche "Good Job But" notes... thank you very much for the quality reporting of the progress on all of the major storms which have struck Florida this hurricane season. It makes an incredible difference for those of us who may not even be in the Orlando (your headquarters) area, broadcast through your affiliate stations such as Fox 51 out of Ocala.
As a Registered Nurse, I am concerned that your station is not issuing eye protection for your reporters in the field reporting on the hurricane conditions. Many of them commented on the force that even the raindrops impart when carried by these winds, much less the other debris picked up by hurricanes and moved about.
Eye protection is quite inexpensive, compared to paying one of your reporters disability for losing their vision, even temporarily from corneal abrasions, while on the job.
