Everyone who went through Hurricane Hugo has a story—a memory as dramatic and unforgettable as the storm itself. Hugo left us with boats on land, houses in water, and fish in places where fish aren’t supposed to be. People heard roaring winds that sounded like freight trains and watched rising waters float cars and buildings like rubber ducks in a tub. For some, these images are as indelible today as they were 25 years ago when Hugo slammed into Charleston on the night of September 21, 1989.
