Hurricane Hugo, which made landfall on September 21, 1989, was the first serious storm to cross the South Carolina coast in over 30 years. During this period, the coastal areas had grown rapidly. Hugo was a severe storm, but over most of the affected area, the wind speeds and flooding were at or below the design levels. Despite this, damage exceeded six billion dollars. This proceeding, Hurricane Hugo One Year Later, contains papers presented in Charleston, South Carolina, September 13-15, 1990. They are on selected topics chosen to give a coherent picture of the overall storm and its impact. There are discussions about the size and severity of Hugo, as well as its effect on buildings, marinas, utilities, and other facilities and includes first hand accounts of the storm from individuals who did not evacuate. Also included are papers relating the effectiveness of personnel actions, the evacuation process, building codes and standards, the media, and the recovery process.
