Telemundo convenes Hurricane Harvey Registry panel at Rice

Spanish-language Telemundo’s Houston station, KTMD-TV, taped a special panel discussion on the Hurricane Harvey Registry and how the region has improved its readiness for severe weather events. The taping, which took place at Hudspeth Auditorium inside the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies’ Anderson-Clarke Center and will air this summer, featured a presentation about the registry and a preliminary report on its findings by Joally Canales, community outreach coordinator for Rice’s Children’s Environmental Health Initiative.

Panelists included (from left) Loren Raun, Houston’s chief environmental science officer; Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez; Houston Fire Department Chief Sam Peña; Porfirio Villarreal, public information officer for the Houston Health Department; Martha Marquez, media specialist at Harris County Public Health; Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia; and Canales.
