NPR has reporters in Florida and the Caribbean to bring you the latest news as Hurricane Irma spins toward the mainland.

But our reporters can't be everywhere. That's where you come in: How are you preparing? What have you learned from Andrew and other destructive storms in the past? Are you staying put or getting out? What's happening in your neighborhood? How is the experience affecting your mental and emotional state?

If possible — and if you're in a safe place — we'd like to follow your whole story before, during and after the storm. You can choose a way to talk to us:

  • Email with your name, your situation and the best way to reach you. A reporter might contact you.
  • Leave a voicemail describing conditions in your location at 202-216-9564. We might use your voice on the air.
  • Fill out the form below. A reporter might contact you.
