Hurricane Andrew

As the time it struck, Andrew (24 Aug 92) was the 3rd strongest hurricane--and at the time, the costliest natural disaster--ever to hit the continental U.S., with insured and uninsured damage totalling nearly $30 billion. Andrew was a Category 5 hurricane, according to reanalyses released by the National Hurricane Center in August 2002, with a minimum central pressure at landfall (southern Dade County FL, now known as Miami-Dade County) of 922 mb and peak winds of 165 mph. I was fortunate enough to be in the eyewall, and to witness its tremendous power. Here are a few graphic reminders...
