An intense squall line with winds of 70-100 mph swept across Florida during the late night and pre-dawn hours of March 12/13, causing widespread wind damage to trees and mobile homes across South Florida. One death in South Miami-Dade County was attributed to this storm, and damage was estimated at just over $1 million in South Florida alone.
A total of 47 people died from the storm in Florida, most from a deadly storm surge of up to 12 feet along the Gulf Coast Big Bend of North Florida. This was the same storm that resulted in a historic blizzard for the Applachians of the SE United States, with record cold temperatures across most of Florida in the days that followed.
