My Miami blog today concerns hurricanes and hurricane preparedness. When disaster strikes, many cities come together to show their love and support by helping their neighbor. After Hurricane Andrew hit Miami in 1992, many Miami residents came together as well. It was to loot the Cutler Ridge Mall.
Day and night gangs of people worked hard. Community spirit was raised by finding lots of "free things." There were news videos of many people "helping their neighbor." It's very hard to run out of a mall lugging heavy t.v.'s and other heavy appliances by oneself. Many videos show two or more people running out of the mall with these heavy items. Yes, Miami is the "help your neighbor" city.
