Florida City, FL
Florida City is a city in Miami-Dade County, Florida. It is the southernmost municipality in the South Florida metropolitan area, which had an estimated population of 5,413,212 in 2007. As of 2004, the population estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau is 8,363. Florida City is primarily a Miami suburb and a major agricultural area. The city lies to the south and west of, and is contiguous with, Homestead. Both cities suffered catastrophic damage in August 1992, when Hurricane Andrew struck South Florida. The city originated as a land promotion named Detroit. There were no buildings in the area when the first thirty families arrived in 1910, and they had to stay in Homestead until their houses could be built. The name was changed to Florida City when the town incorporated in 1914. It has a small historic area, but much of the city is hotels and other tourist facilities. The city is at the eastern end of the only road running through the Everglades National Park, which terminates at Flamingo. Florida City is the southernmost city in the United States which is not on an island. It is also the last stop on the mainland north of the Florida Keys. The southern terminus of the Homestead Extension of Florida’s Turnpike where it ends at its junction with U.S. 1 is located in Florida City. Florida City is situated mostly atop a limestone ridge called the Miami Rock Ridge that extends south from North Miami Beach to Everglades National Park. This ridge serves as the higher ground within the community. The ridge extends from northeast to southwest across the city. The old location of the Florida East Coast Railway track marks the approximate boundary of the location of the limestone ridge south of Davis Parkway. The range of elevation of the ridge is from 5 to 8 feet above sea level. Prior to settlement, the ridge was vegetated by South Florida Slash Pine trees, which were alternatively known as “Dade County Pine” (Pinus elliottii var. densa). These pine rocklands were crushed by equipment and converted to farmland during the 1900s. Tomatoes, squash, and other truck crops were grown in the area during the winter months and packed at the Florida City State Farmers’ Market near Krome Avenue and Palm Drive, driving the local economy throughout the 1900s. East of the natural ridge was a broad area of marshlands surrounding the area. Some called these coastal glades the “East Glade”. East of the East Glade, marshlands gave way to mangrove swamp prior to reaching Biscayne Bay. Soils in the East Glade primarily consisted of a limey soil called Biscayne Marl. Development schemes in the East Glade led to the construction of canals in the early 1900s. This led to a lowering of water tables. The local climate is considered a Tropical Savanna Climate (grasslands with tropical wet and dry periods). Homestead Florida is to the north. Everglades National Park is to the west. The Florida Keys are to the south.
Hurricane Andrew was, at the time of its occurrence in August 1992, the costliest hurricane in United States history. The first hurricane of the 1992 Atlantic hurricane season, Andrew originated from a tropical wave over the central Atlantic. After turning westward, Hurricane Andrew entered a stage of rapid intensification, strengthening into a Category 5 hurricane near the Bahamas on August 23. It briefly weakened to a Category 4 hurricane over the island nation, but regained Category 5 intensity on August 24 before making landfall on Elliott Key and later in Homestead. Several hours later, the hurricane emerged into the Gulf of Mexico at Category 4 strength as it curved toward the Gulf Coast of the United States. As a Category 3 hurricane, Andrew moved ashore near Morgan City, Louisiana. In the Bahamas, Hurricane Andrew brought high tides, hurricane force winds, and tornadoes, which caused considerable damage. At least 800 houses were destroyed and there was substantial damage to the transport, communications, water, sanitation, agriculture, and fishing sectors. Overall, Hurricane Andrew caused four deaths and $250 million (1992 USD) in damage in the Bahamas. Throughout the southern portions of Florida, Hurricane Andrew brought very high winds; a wind gust of 177 mph (282 km/h) was reported at a house in Perrine. High winds caused catastrophic damage in Florida, especially in Miami-Dade County. In Miami-Dade County alone, damage was estimated at $25 billion (1992 USD) and 40 fatalities. Additionally, rainfall in Florida was substantial, peaking at 13.98 in (355 mm) in western Miami-Dade County.
