One of the themes that’s emerged as we commemorate the 20th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, is how the storm inspired a lot of good intentions, as well as just pure kindness.
In 2002, Homestead sought to commemorate the tenth year anniversary of the storm. The area had been, by far, the hardest hit during the storm.
Judy Waldman was on the Homestead City Council the year Homestead was planning the commemoration.
She said what struck her most about the time following the hurricane was the way people had banded together and helped their neighbors and strangers.
