This work analyzes about thirty different hurricanes that had an impact on South Carolina from 1800 to Hurricane Hugo. Some of the books that will be used in this research specifically on Hurricane Hugo include Hurricane Hugo and the Grand Strand, by Cynthia Struby, which, as its title suggests documents the damage to the Grand Strand area of South Carolina. Additionally, work such as Jamie and Dorothy Moore’s Island in the Storm: Sullivan’s Island and Hurricane Hugo will be important in exploring the damage caused to Sullivan’s Island. There are several studies that have been published that detail the damage that Hurricane Hugo caused to both forests. This study on the damage it caused to the forest is important to study to understand the impact on the economy.
