Description Rebuilding and Reflecting in the Catskills: One Year After Irene & Lee

On Sunday, August 28, 2011, Hurricane Irene arrived in the Northern Catskill Mountains leaving a wave of destruction as never before.  Tropical Storm Lee arrived on September 8th.  Homes and businesses were demolished; roads and bridges washed away, and crops were wiped out at harvest time in what some have labeled a "500 year event."  One year after the devastating floods that were a result of the storms, Professor Hallock explores perspectives on the year past and shares how lives have changed, or remained the same, in the Catskill region.
