"On August 24, 1992, the eye of..." Florida Warnings Or Dangers Tip by AndreasK

Florida Warnings and Dangers: 82 reviews and 56 photos


On August 24, 1992, the eye of Hurricane Andrew moved over the community of <b>Homestead</b>. Here Andrew hit with the most force destroying 90 percent of all houses. A reporter visiting the scene less than three hours later reported that not a house was left standing. Auto dealerships looked like aluminum recycling centers, new cars stacked like crushed cans.
