Rita: Things That Go Thump In The Night, & Chasing The American Flag

By Brian 

CNN’s Randi Kaye blogs:

“It’s just before 5 a.m. in Baytown, Texas. We’ve been doing live shots since 11 p.m. Let me tell you, there is nothing scarier than being in hurricane force winds and hearing huge clangs and thumps and shattering of glass or metal. It is too dark to know where it is coming from and you just pray it doesn’t come flying toward you.

Our whole crew was really careful, but there are certain chances you take to get the story out there. I can’t wait until daylight to see what was going thump in the night. We lost two of the three flags on our hotel flagpoles, including the American flag. But my brave producer, Henry Schuster, chased it down and saved it.”
