Hurricane Andrew proved to be the third most powerful Category 5 hurricane to make landfall in the United States during the 20th century, causing 65 deaths along its path. In addition to individual property damage (totaled approximately $40 billion dollars; 2008 USD), the coastlines of both southeast Florida and were ravished by this massive storm. This JCR Special Issue includes a collection of scientific papers detailing the impacts that occurred from a 5.2 m (17.0 ft) storm surge in Florida and a 2.4 m (8.0 ft) tidal surge in Louisiana. Dr. Charles W. Finkl, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Coastal Research, serves as one of the principal editors for this volume of publications.
