   schema:reviewBody ""Although Florida has been struck by more hurricanes than any other region of the continental United States, most people living in South Florida in 1992 had never experienced one. On August 24, in a matter of hours, Hurricane Andrew ravaged communities on the South Florida coast, leaving 250,000 people homeless and physical damages of close to $30 billion. Based on interviews with survivors and rescue workers in the weeks and months that followed, In the Eye of Hurricane Andrew is the story of one of the most destructive natural disasters in modern American history as told by the people who lived through it." "Nearly 100 people representing diverse backgrounds share their experiences, from a mother who weathered the storm in a tiny bathroom shared with another adult, four children, and a dog, to a roofer who traveled from Tennessee to help in the rebuilding process, to Bryan Norcross, the TV weatherman whose voice guided many through the storm. Their stories create a real sense of how Andrew impacted each person - the decision to evacuate or not, preparations, what happened during the storm, the clean-up, looting, price gouging, rebuilding, living in the aftermath - and testify to the ingenuity and resiliency of South Florida's citizens."--Jacket." ;
