It's Been 25 Years Since Hurricane Andrew. What Do You Remember?


It's been almost 25 years since Hurricane Andrew roared through South Florida and we're collecting your stories and memories about the storm. 

The Category 5 hurricane flattened South Dade, with the worst of the damage stretching south of Kendall to Florida City. It destroyed more than 28,000 homes, left more than 180,000 people homeless and caused more than $25 billion in damage.

To commemorate Andrew's quarter-century anniversary, HistoryMiami is hosting an exhibition on the storm. During the opening reception, the WLRN-History Miami story recording booth will be at the museum. We invite you to visit the booth and record your story with us. Tickets are required to attend. 

The booth will only be available during the June 1 reception, but there are other ways to share your Andrew memories with us. Do you have a Hurricane Andrew story? Share it here
