Heavy rains have caused a dam in Lynchburg, Virginia, to overflow and sparked fears of a catastrophic flood if the dam fails. Also, a longer-than-average red tide season is killing wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico, and fish, manatees, dolphins and sea turtles are washing up dead on South Florida beaches. "It really is making a very demonstrable impact," says Dr. Heather Barron, veterinarian and research director at the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife in Sanibel, Florida. And Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with DJ Chris Burrell from WKDU in Philadelphia about the city's electronic music scene and some of its hottest local artists. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's Aug. 3, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
