Anderson started Wednesday's 360 with Hurricane Irma. An overview, footage of damage and aftermath in parts of the Caribbean and a Q&A with Layla Santiago in San Jaun, Puerto Rico. Anderson also had a phone interview with Gaston Browne, Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda about the situation there. Browne said his island was "barely inhabitable", talked about the damage and destruction and hoped for relief and recovery. Next was information on Irma from meteorologist Tom Sater and Ed Rapppaport of the NOAA about Irma's intensity, path and already being in the books as the worst Atlantic hurricane.

Irma also started the second segment; Anderson spoke on the phone with Richard Henning of NOAA about his flight into Irma and what he found out. There was also an interview with Miami Beach Mayor Phillip Levine on how his city is preparing and evacuating. Levine simply wants everyone to leave.

Next up was politics. The chyron read "Trump Blindsides GOP Leadership With Dem Deal" involving an agreement with the Democrats about the debt ceiling and funds for Hurricane Harvey victims. Jim Acosta talked about the deal, what GOPers wanted instead and their annoyance with Ivanka popping into Oval Office meetings. Anderson had Kirsten Powers and Michael D'Antonia on to discuss all of this.

Facebook had sold ads to a Russian political "troll farm" and Jim Sciutto had the details. The ads mostly dealt with issues but some attacked Hillary Clinton, how this has become a factor in the Russia election investigation and news of Don Trump Jr. testifying tomorrow before the Senate Judiciary Committee. A panel of Carl Bernstein, John Dean and Jeffrey Toobin discussed the investigation, obstruction of justice, collusion, the infamous July meeting Trump Jr. had, his upcoming testimony, the emails and what Mueller wants to know.

Sater came back for another look at Irma followed by a phone interview with Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez with the familiar topics of preparation, evacuation and recovery.
Anderson's preview of the second hour start looked exactly like the first hour start.

@CAPPY - Am I correct in thinking your complaint yesterday was more about Anderson and 360 not mentioning climate change when covering Hurricane Irma or was your complaint more about the actual coverage? I agree two back-to-back hurricanes at Category 5 is unusual and should be looked at with climate change being a possible factor. And when it comes to preparation for climate change Miami and most of southern Florida is a great place to begin. This is because of how low the area is, how much damage has already been done and coupled with a Governor who refuses to speak of or let anyone in state government speak of climate change.

I loved when Kirsten Powers said that no one cares or is impressed when Trump brings Ivanka Trump into important meetings or events and that neither one of them get that.

@JAANZA: YOU ARE CORRECT. I MEANT ANDERSON AND ALL OTHER MEDIA OUTLETS. THE MERE STRENGTH AND DURATION OF ALL OF THESE HURRICANES ARE FAR STRONGER THAN EVER BEFORE AND I BELIEVE IT IS RELATED TO CLIMATE CHANGE. WHAT IS THEIR PURPOSE IN REPORTING THE OBVIOUS? WHY ISN'T CLIMATE CHANGE MENTIONED BY CHAD MEYERS, AT CNN??
I ALSO THINK AND I HAVE NO WAY OF SUPPORTING THIS THEORY, THAT "LITTLE KIM'S FREQUENT DISREGARD FOR PRACTICING HIS BALLISTIC MISSILE ERUPTIONS, HAVE DISTURBED THE ATMOSPHERE EVEN MORE. COMMON SENSE WOULD TELL ANYONE WITH HALF A BRAIN, EXCLUDING TRUMP, THAT THE ATMOSPHERE HAS ALREADY TAKEN ENOUGH HITS, TO HEIGHTEN THE SEVERITY OF THE THESE HURRICANES.
ANDERSON HAS REPORTED ON THE HURRICANES YES, BUT HE HAS NEVER ONCE, THAT I KNOW OF, MENTIONED THE RELEVANCE OF CLIMATE CHANGE! ONE SEVERE HURRICANE RIGHT AFTER THE OTHER IS VERY, VERY RARE. BUT SO FAR, THEY'RE ALL RED STATES....BUT THAT COULD CHANGE, UNFORTUNATELY.
