CNBC announced Friday that it will air “August Anxiety: A CNBC Hurricane Special Report” tomorrow during Squawk Box and On The Money…
With much fanfare and angst, the 2006 hurricane season kicked off on June 1st. Since then, the storm front has remained quiet. But the calm period could soon be over. NBC Weather Plus Tropical Expert Jason Cali’s says that although a storm is still more likely to form in September than August, the storms in August are more likely to impact the U.S.
On Tuesday, August 1st, CNBC will air, “August Anxiety: A CNBC Hurricane Special Report” to kick off the month of August, answering the big questions: “Will another US city, and perhaps even the US economy suffer a devastating blow between Aug 1st and Aug 29th? If so, what industries, localities are best prepared? What sectors prosper and what sectors could perish? What, if anything, did we learn from the last few years?”
Special packages will air during “Squawk Box” (M-F, 6am-9am ET) and “On the Money” (M-F, 7pm-8pm ET) with CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla anchoring live from Punta Gorda, Florida and CNBC’s Scott Cohn reporting live from the NOAA in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Special expert guests will include the former Fema Director Michael Brown as well as the current Fema Director David Paulison.
At the end of August, CNBC will again revisit storm-ravaged Mississippi and Louisiana to look at Hurricane Katrina’s enduring impact. But, more importantly, alot that affects CNBC viewers could change in those 28 days.
