U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement to mark the 25th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew making landfall in South Florida:

"As we remember the 25th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew devastating South Florida, we recall the destruction and damage the storm left in its path. The storm upended the lives of tens of thousands of South Floridians and changed our lives forever. The anniversary should serve as a reminder that this hurricane season, like every year, South Floridians must take early precautions and prepare for the potential of severe storms. As individuals make their hurricane preparation plans, Congress has an obligation to adequately fund NOAA and FEMA while taking action on climate change, which increases the frequency and intensity of storms. But today, I stand with my neighbors and constituents remembering what we all went through together during that devastating storm."
