FM Es opening 6/4/17 into FL

Murphy’s Law always hits hard in the DXing hobby.  I took a nap on June 4, only to find that during the exact times I slept, I missed what seemed to be a respectable FM Es opening.  During the 12PM hour, my unattended recordings on 88.9 FM picked up two signals, one an NPR station airing a hurricane preparedness PSA for Floridians, and the other broadcasting jazz music.  Due to signal paths posted online, I suspect that the NPR is WQCS Ft. Pierce, FL and the jazz signal is WDNA Miami, FL.  Overall, the skip was heard on 88.9 for about 3 minutes cumulative, but I am not sure of the MUF of the opening, since I was only monitoring one frequency.
