Daylight reveals devastation after Hurricane Andrew

Houses destroyed; Residents begin cleanup, moving out

When the sun rose after Hurricane Andrew hit South Florida, the devastation was clear.

Local 10's Andrew Koppel reported that one man wrote letters to his girlfriend and mother in case he was killed. He waited out the hurricane inside his bathtub. Another woman said having her house destroyed was more difficult to deal with than fighting cancer.
