Ten years after it struck southern Florida, Hurricane Andrew has been updated to a class category five intensity storm. Robert Marckioli and his family lived through that harrowing night in 1992 from their residence in Homestead, Fla. Guest host Renee Montagne speaks with him about how the Marckiolis dealt with the aftermath of the storm — including trying to find their house among the wrecked streets.
