Next viewer chronicles a hurricane from Haiti

KUSA - Next viewers are getting personalized weather reports on Hurricane Matthew from a fellow Next viewer in Haiti.

Rob Zavaglia is there with a group from Summit Church in Centennial.

He's the first person to ever use the hashtag #HeyNext to chronicle a hurricane.

He says conditions are calmer than they were told to expect.

The church group was there for a service trip. They chose to stay through the hurricane to help with disaster relief.

They boarded up some windows - and they're waiting it out.

They're planning on helping with any damage control and flooding issues through the week.

They're scheduled to fly back to Colorado on Sunday.

Rob is sending more from Haiti than photos, too. He's sending some shade -- a photo of patio furniture.

Be safe Rob. We'll talk about this when you get back to Colorado.
