Big Bad Betsy: Insights from Jim Lushine, our resident weather expert:

Sunday, Sept 8, is the 48th anniversary of the landfall of "Big Bad"  Betsy, a major hurricane that struck Key Largo.One of its distinctions is that it was the first billion dollar hurricane in U.S. history (in 1965 dollars).

It was a Category 3 hurricane at landfall in Florida and was the last major hurricane to strike South Florida until Andrew 27 years later. That was the longest time period between South Florida major hurricanes in the last 100 years.
