Hurricane Andrew was an early season storm, making landfall on Aug. 24, 1992. If you lived in Miami on this day, you watched as the intense storm with a tightly formed eye barreled toward us. We also got to know CBS4 Meteorologist Bryan Norcross pretty much on a personal level. He was the voice guiding us through the hurricane that would pummel the city, particularly Homestead.

As the 25th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew approaches, several events take a look back at Andrew and its path of destruction and the advancements in hurricane research since then.
