Hurricane Hugo
Sept. 22, 1989
Hurricane Hugo, a Category 4 Tropical Cyclone with sustained winds of 138 mph, made landfall 100 miles to the south near Charleston, SC. Hugo was so intense a storm it ravaged the coast far from its center. The Grand Strand was not spared. Locally, hundreds of beachfront homes were swept from their foundations, and oceanfront hotels suffered severe damage from the pounding surf.
