4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Bomojaz on January 10, 2008
Format: Paperback
After a brief introduction regarding hurricanes, what they are, and the meaning behind the 1-5 category ratings, we get the meat of the book: pretty much a chronological briefing of all the major hurricanes and tropical storms that have lashed the South Carolina coast, from as far back as the late 1500s up to Hugo in 1989 (though Floyd in 1999 is briefly mentioned). Information about pre-mid 19th century storms must be gleamed from diaries and newspaper reports, and Rubillo quotes freely from both, especially newspapers.

South Carolina has been roughed up by quite a few good storms, most of them coming, of course, before the weather bureau began naming them in 1950. 1804, 1854, and 1893 brought particularly nasty storms. Charleston seems to have a bullseye on it when it comes to storms making landfall. The book was interesting and geared toward the average person interested in the topic: it is not an academic tome. Recommended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Easy to read book on South Carolina hurricane history. This tells about the state's big ones, very revealing to those who live near the coast.
