The building is 12 stories high with the radar dome, antennas and generators located on the roof.
The Hurricane Center was located on the sixth floor, the only floor with Hurricane Shutters on the windows at that time.
Hurricane Andrew in 1992 damaged many of the roof mounted structures and antennas.
