Hurricane Maria has swirled back over the Atlantic after leaving a trail of destruction across Puerto Rico.  The entire island is without power in the wake of the powerful storm.  Communication lines have been cut and thousands are huddled in shelters. Here in Northeast Ohio families wait to hear from loved ones back in Puerto Rico.  We'll hear from local families holding onto hope as the full destruction of Hurricane Maria is revealed.  The vigil is the same for families of loved ones in Mexico City.
Then, we'll talk about what it means to have "vibrant green spaces" in Cleveland and how that helps  meet its goal of becoming a sustainable city.
 Plus, stepping in to help at risk LGBTQ youth.
