Hurricane Irma ravaged the small Caribbean island of Anguilla on Wednesday, killing at least one person and leveling buildings across the island. But it did not stop 19-year-old radio broadcaster Nisha Dupuis from doing her job.

Video taken inside the studios of Radio Anguilla shows Dupuis (@DupuisNisha) calling out to listeners as hurricane-force wind rattles the building. Here & Now's Robin Young talks with her.

This segment aired on September 8, 2017.
