In 1992, Hurricanes Andrew and Iniki devastated portions of Florida, Louisiana, and Hawaii causing over $35 billion in damages and the loss of 38 lives. Hurricane Andrew, which accounted for $32 billion of the damages, has been called the most costly natural disaster in the history of the U.S.. During the same year, Typhoon Omar caused over $0.5 billion in damages on the U.S. territory of Guam. The dollar damages resulting from the Hurricanes of 1992 were six times those caused by Hurricane Hugo in 1989. These proceedings, ""Hurricanes of 1992"", contains papers presented at a conference in Miami, Florida, December 1-3, 1993 dealing with Hurricanes Andrew and Iniki, and Typhoon Omar. The papers were selected to represent a broad cross-section of interests related to civil engineering and wind storms. Topics presented include: wind speeds and wind loads; risk assessment; insurance; damage assessment; building codes; building code implementation and enforcement; coastal structures; manufactured, residential, and commercial structures; essential facilities; and lifelines.
