Episode 10, Hurricane of 1928
This episode of Heritage looks back on the Hurricane of 1928, the one which no other hurricane has compared too. With a death toll of 1,836 in Florida alone and 1,575 in the Caribbean the storm would never be forgotten. During Florida's economical and population boom the state was blind sided by this blow. Much like its predesser the Great Miami Hurricane Florida's southern edges of Lake Okeechobee were hit with ever lasting damage. To better understand the severity this episode features footage and interviews of survivors and witness's to the now called Great Okeechobee flood.
