The Importance of Radio During Emergency Situations: 2015 Central Texas Floods
MetadataShow full metadata
The two floods of Central Texas in 2015, on Memorial Day weekend and in late October, ravaged the city of San Marcos. This project includes the transcript of an audio documentary, focusing on Texas State University’s student-run radio station, KTSW-FM 89.9’s efforts to provide adequate emergency updates on-air during floods. At the end of the documentary is an outlined plan for the station’s response to future emergency situations, which can also be applied to other student-run and professional operations.
