Remembering Hurricane Andrew and the unbreakable spirit to rebuild
August 24 marked the 25th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, one of the most devastating and destructive storms to impact Florida. It’s hard to believe it’s been a quarter of a century since this historic storm made landfall and drastically altered our state.
Nearly 1.4 million FPL customers in five counties were impacted by the storm – half of whom lived in Miami-Dade County. For 35 days, FPL’s restoration team of approximately 6,000 men and women worked around the clock to rebuild the electrical infrastructure and restore service to our customers.
Fast forward to today and look how far we have come. At FPL, we’ve built a stronger, smarter and more storm-resilient energy grid that provides reliable service to the more than 10 million people we serve. We will weather whatever storm is next, together.
