LPFM Radio Station Staffers Rescued in Rath of Hurricane Isaac

Radio Station Staff Rescued from Hurricane Isaac

Hurricane Isaac will be remembered for its heavy rains along the Gulf Coast. For Biloxi Mississippi low-power FM WQRZ-LP, which refers to itself as “Katrina Radio”, even a building nine feet off the ground wasn’t enough to stay dry. After eight inches of water filled the station, local emergency management officials were needed to rescue four WQRZ-LP volunteers. The Sun Herald reports the LPFM was honored by President Bush for its service after Hurricane Katrina.
