Locals Mobilize To Help Those In Path Of Hurricane Florence; CEO & Worker Pay Studies

Hurricane Florence, a massive storm that packs destructive winds, heavy rains and a damaging surge, is moving closer to the Carolinas. The storm's  wind speed and power has diminished over the past day, but make no mistake, it's still a beast and it is expected to cause major damage. It's a huge storm and it will linger. We'll talk with a National Weather Service meteorologist, a reporter form North Carolina Public Radio, a first responder Dayton-based Ohio Task Force One, now deployed in North Carolina,  and a local Red Cross volunteer on the scene at a shelter.  Later, CEO pay is way up. Worker pay? Not so much, according to two new studies. We'll discuss.
