On August 24, 1992, Hurricane Andrew made landfall in South Florida. “The Big One,” as Andrew came to be known, claimed 44 lives and caused more than $25 billion in damage to the area. At the time, it was the most destructive hurricane in U.S. history.  To mark the 25th anniversary of the storm in 2017, HistoryMiami Museum organized an extensive exhibition chronicling the story of the hurricane, from its formation to its legacy. As part of that exhibition, Hammer and Nail produced a series of videos, totaling 80 minutes, in which survivors recounted their experiences before, during, and after the storm.
