Hurricane Andrew Remembrance Day at Miami Science Museum- September 25
Hurricane Andrew Remembrance Day
On August 24, 1992, South Florida was shaken to its core when Category 5 Hurricane Andrew made landfall at around 5:00am. The storm and its aftermath left the city of Homestead completely devastated. Twenty years later the memories of the survivors are still clear as day. For the South Florida community, Hurricane Andrew is one storm that will never be forgotten. To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, the Miami Science Museum is hosting a day of remembrance on August 25, 2012 from 11am until 5pm.
Come explore the museum and be treated to the day’s special activities. Remember Andrew through our new Andrew Exhibit and with special guest panels including Bryan Norcross, Max Mayfield, Stan Goldenberg, Chris Landsea, Frank Marks, Kate Hale, and Richard Ford. See our special planetarium showing of Remembering Andrew Under the Stars featuring WLRN survivor stories. As you explore the museum, stop in the theater to watch video coverage of Hurricane Andrew and be up to date on the tropics with a tropical weather briefing. We hope to see you there!
Time: 11:00 pm to 5:00 pm
