Description

Covering disasters -- whether natural or human-caused -- takes a special set of skills. Investigative journalists today are using a combination of tech-savvy approaches with time-tested methods of on-the-ground reporting. They are also learning to better deal with the tragedy and trauma around them. Here are veteran journalists who have experienced very different disasters -- hurricanes, collapsed dams, earthquakes -- and learned how to both dig and cope under pressure.
