Hurricane Katrina in Florida

Hurricane Katrina made its first US landfall fifteen years ago today. Before Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast becoming the deadliest US Hurricane since 1928, it made landfall in southern Florida where it claimed 12 lives and did plenty of damage.

On this week’s Florida History Podcast we look back at Katrina’s south Florida landfall and its impact on the Florida Panhandle.
