Growing up in Miami, Nanci Mitchell has been through a lot of hurricanes.
“I remember in high school, sitting on the back porch in the middle of one of the hurricanes, just screened in, and it was just neat watching the storm,” she said. “It was no big deal.”
But Hurricane Andrew was a different story.
In a conversation with her sister-in-law, who lived out of state, Mitchell, then 47, confessed that Andrew “was unlike any other.”
“There was nothing like this hurricane,” she said.
