Hurricane Andrew

Remembering Hurricane Andrew

Aug 23, 2012

Linda Meyer was on vacation when Hurricane Andrew hit her home.  She was visiting former WQCS Development Director Adrienne Moore and spent the storm in our studios as we aired updates and information.  Three days later she returned home.

Emily Gibbons, then 12, had heart surgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital two days before the storm struck, on Aug. 24, 1992.   

Now of Stuart, Ralph Baker says lights and other aids to navigation in the Bahamas had been blown away by the storm.  

Now a Treasure Coast resident, Tanya Sockol has never forgotten what the storm did to her unborn baby's newly decorated nursery at her home in Florida City.

Tanya Sockol, now a St. Lucie County firefighter, had just finished decorating a nursery for her unborn daughter when Andrew struck South Florida, on Aug. 24, 1992.
