Last Updated: Tuesday, October 17, 2017, 9:08 AM EDT

Last month, Hurricane Irma took its place in the pantheon of historic Florida hurricanes.

Andrew, Charley, Donna, Wilma, the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935.

While the economic, physical and emotional cost of Hurricane Irma is still being tabulated — and will be for quite some time — there is no doubt that Irma was a record breaking, devastating storm worthy of being part of that infamous list.

At 6 p.m. Tuesday, Spectrum News 13 will take a closer look at how the storm impacted your life.

Our hour-long special, “Hurricane Irma: Your Stories,” reflects on Irma’s impact in Florida’s hardest-hit communities, from the Florida Keys, where the storm made landfall, up the entire state.

We’ll examine some of the major problems Irma exposed, such as the issues restoring power throughout the state, and the breakdown in the care of our most vulnerable senior citizens.

And we’ll give you a chance to ask your questions during interviews with government officials, emergency management experts, utility company officials and the American Red Cross.
