In partnership with the Miami Science Museum, the International Hurricane Research Center at FIU with the support of Florida's Dept. of Emergency Management has developed an exhibit about hurricanes. It is not a coincidence that 20 years after Hurricane Andrew made landfall in South Florida, IHRC has created this interactive display to teach the science, remember the past and create awareness to motivate preparedness towards hurricanes in our community.

IHRC is an interdisciplinary research center focused on the mitigation of hurricane damage to people, the economy and the built and natural environments. The Wall of Wind is one of the tools developed and used by engineers and researchers at the Laboratory for Wind Engineering Research, one of four labs that make up the IHRC.
