Storm Center

Feel the rush of hurricane force winds in the hurricane simulator or view photos of the devastation left behind by Hurricane Andrew. Visitors can touch the vortex of a 10-foot tornado or generate a cloud or peer into a plasma sphere, representing the state of matter that lights up the sky in the form of lightning. They can simulate their own storm report on TV in the WSVN Weather Studio or test construction against hurricane force winds in FIU’s Wall of Wind exhibit. The FPL Storm Center’s Power On! exhibit allows visitors to experience electricity in an entirely new way! In this highly interactive animated experience, they can role play as a decision maker “directing” FPL power restoration specialists who are working to restore power safely while also learning how FPL responds to hurricanes.
