Abstract:

Like countless other Floridians, Dr. David E. Fisher was not prepared for the hurricane that hit Miami on August 24, 1992. In The Scariest Place on Earth, he recounts the ordeal of Hurricane Andrew, the terror when it hit land and the wreckage in its aftermath. Hurricane Andrew, Fisher argues, is the greatest disaster to hit the United States (the insured losses are more than double those of the Los Angeles earthquake of 1994), and the cleanup and repairs continue to this day. The Scariest Place on Earth is a fascinating firsthand account and informative historical look at one of nature's most violent forces.
