Hurricane Andrew: Monster storm remembered 20 years later

As tropical storm Isaac churns toward land, a memorable weather anniversary approaches as well.

Twenty years ago on August 24, 1992, Hurricane Andrew slammed into South Florida. Originally classified as a Category 4, the monster storm was reclassified in 2002 as a Category 5.

Andrew is blamed for killing 25 people in the United States and it's still the third most expensive hurricane in U.S. history.

It took more than $26 billion to rebuild.
