State lawmakers hold a special session Tuesday to discuss the response to Hurricane Florence. Legislators will decide how much money to appropriate for disaster relief while citizens and state agencies are still trying to tally up the damages.

Analytics company CoreLogic estimates the cost of Hurricane Florence and its aftermath to be between $19 billion and $28.5 billion.

Host Frank Stasio talks to WUNC Capitol Bureau Chief Jeff Tiberii about the political atmosphere as legislators head into the special session. Tiberii also shares an update on federal and state races in North Carolina as the November midterm elections inch closer.

Amanda Magnus is the editor of "Embodied," a weekly radio show and podcast about sex, relationships and health. She's also the lead producer for on-demand content at WUNC and has worked on "Tested" and "CREEP."
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
