September 19, 2021: In Deep—One City's Year of Climate Chaos


Most scientists believe climate change is increasing the severity of the storms we experience, and how quickly they intensify. After suffering two hurricanes, a winter storm, and devastating flooding in less than a year, Lake Charles, Louisiana, offers a troubling view of the wrenching, disturbingly inequitable effects of climate change.

In Deep: One City’s Year of Climate Chaos offers a rich journalistic portrait of a working-class city and its residents at a perilous moment in our planet’s existence.

In Deep is a project from American Public Media’s Water Main Initiative, which is focused on the intersection of climate, equity, public health, and environment.
