It’s been a pretty uneventful monsoon this season this year, but there’s still a chance for this “non-soon” to turn around.

While most of us would like a respite from the scorching temperatures, the wetter weather brings its own discomforts: Humidity, bugs and even storm damage.

Most of us are able to weather these conditions in relative comfort, but that’s not the experience for some of the community’s most vulnerable populations. 

For this week’s Monsoon Story, The Show hit the baking pavement of downtown Phoenix to talk with someone who experiences the monsoons from very close quarters.
