The Cold War was about the last thing on the minds of Miami residents -- until the fall of 1962 when Russian missiles were discovered in Cuba. Suddenly America's carefree tropical paradise had a front row seat for a looming World War III. What was it like to live under the threat of extinction at any moment? South Floridians, current and former, recall their tense days and sleepless nights, while archival audio heightens this cliffhanger moment in history. Produced for WLRN Miami's Under The Sun. Winner 2013 Edward R. Murrow Awards /Southeast Region: Hard News Reporting.
