It’s been a dangerous and deadly hurricane season. We’ll check in on the ground in Florida in the wake of Hurricane Irma.  Plus, we’ll highlight a local effort to help those impacted by the storm.  Then, the Centers for Disease Control list stroke as a leading cause of death and disability.  Nearly 800,000 people will suffer a stroke each year.  A new report finds that after decades of making progress in preventing stroke deaths, the numbers now aren’t as encouraging and in some states stroke deaths are once again rising. Plus, as technology advances, white-collar criminals get better at committing acts of fraud. It's the FBI's job to keep up with this changing technology, find these suspects and bring them to justice.
