Hurricane Irene Leads to "Role Reversal" for Robin Roberts and Her Family

Hurricane Irene has led to an odd role reversal for me. Usually I'm the one nervous for my family on the Mississippi Coast. We've been through hurricanes from Camille in 1969 to Katrina in 2005. This time it's my mom calling and urging (bugging)ME to take necessary precautions. Do I have enough supplies? Stay away from windows! Exactly what I always tell them when a hurricane is headed their way. But they point out a big difference...at least they'll know I'm ok when they see me on GMA's special coverage Sunday morning.

Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos will anchor a special edition of "Good Morning America" on Hurricane Irene begining Sunday morning at 7 a.m. ET.
