8. Yeah, being inland doesn't mean being safe.

I was in South Carolina for Hugo. I live in the western part of the state. Fortunately, we caught the northwest side of the storm, rather than northeastern side, so we just got rain and moderate winds. The northeastern side is where all the damaging wind is. That's why Charlotte had a ton of wind damage. Areas around Columbia, including Congaree NP saw the same sorts of damage you saw with Florence. They are both way inland. Had Hugo hit near Savannah or south of it, we would have borne the brunt of that damage, instead of the places further east of us.

The thing I remember most about Florence was all the destroyed hog farms, and the environmental disaster it caused. And, from what I understand, they still have not learned from that. I sure hope we don't see a repeat.
