Lowcountry Hurricanes A to Z
Carole Marsh Longmeyer has been writing about hurricanes ever since she lived on the North Carolina coast and got blown all the way to Colorado by the back-to-back hurricanes Fran and Bertha.
A long-time resident of Savannah, the author would shake her head at the comments, “Oh, it can’t happen here.” But in October 2016, Matthew zipped up the coast to slam-bang the lovely Lowcountry, just getting its autumn colors and cool, fall golfing weather. Paradise was marauded, raided, and plundered by massive Matthew, the eye wall of the storm passing just miles from her home in Palmetto Bluff, after terrorizing Savannah, Tybee Island and the other Georgia barrier islands.
Across the Savannah River, Beaufort, Bluffton, Hilton Head Island, Daufuskie Island, and on up the coast, Edisto, Charleston and beyond awaited the onslaught, which came bearing down with a vengeance. This book shares – in flabbergasting facts – the true history of hurricanes come ashore in the Lowcountry since time out of mind.
Learn the rest of the story…if it, could happen again (and when!)…and enjoy this read while the winds are calm…for the moment.
“I wish I’d known all this before Matthew!”
