Wednesday evening found Brian Poe hunkered down in a commercial kitchen, which in some ways was not unusual, as he is a chef by trade. But this particular kitchen was nearly 2,000 miles from his home in Boston, at a resort on the island of St. Maarten. Moreover, at that moment, the kitchen and Poe and 100-some other terrified guests were all in the eye of Hurricane Irma.
"‘I Thought I Was Gone:’ What It’s Like to Be Rescued From Hurricane Irma by U.S. Airmen" is from the September 09, 2017 WorldViews section of The Washington Post. It was written by Avi Selk and narrated by Sam Scholl.
