On Monday’s edition of Houston Matters: A Houston-area man who witnessed the deadly shooting in Las Vegas tells us what he and his wife saw. And some local experts join us to discuss how to better secure large events in Greater Houston.

Then: With a highly active Atlantic hurricane season this year and a number of major, destructive storms, many are wondering how much our global climate might have affected the severity and number of storms. Though some sources are quick to assert that climate change did, in fact, directly affect our hurricanes, there's still some uncertainty from the scientific community about how accurate that is. To learn more, we talk with a scientist who works with predictive models for hurricanes. Dr. Shuyi Chen is a professor of meteorology in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington.

Also this hour: From rodents to roaches, we take your pest control questions for Jeff Murell with Bugco Houston. And we talk with Jeff Balke about the latest developments in Houston sports.

We offer a free daily, downloadable podcast here, on iTunes, Stitcher and various other podcasting apps.
