Radio Soap Opera Replayed in Trinidad


Trinidad and Tobago kicked off hurricane season by rebroadcasting “The Rough Season,” a radio soap opera that aims to raise awareness of disaster risk among vulnerable communities in the English-speaking Caribbean. Throughout 10 episodes, each 15 minute long, the characters find themselves dealing with natural hazards such as floods, hurricanes, storms, landslides, and even a food security crisis. This radio soap opera is an inter-agency effort of PAHO/WHO, the ISDR, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the Association of Caribbean States.
