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.

Cumulonimbus clouds are storm clouds that occur with a combination of moisture, heat, and an unstable air mass. At the time of the Knockdown in the book, it was in the mature stage, which means it may have been a supercell storm. The crew was lucky, because they had cargo to stabilize their ship. If they had a whale, their ship would be even more
The amount of property that was damaged by hurricane Harvey was vast. Strong winds are what people think of when they think of a hurricane. The winds from Harvey were said to have reached 130 mph. That was enough for it to be classified as a category 4 storm. The strong winds spread debris across the land scape of Texas as it ripped through the structures destroying anything in its direct path.

But by late August, tornadoes at this time of year are weak. At 2:54 p.m., in northern Dekalb tree and crop damage was reported but by 3:10 p.m. three-fourths of an inch of just rain had fallen in Dekalb.

Natural disaster can be every bodies night mare in some parts of the world because of all the damage they can cause. Hurricanes and twister have many similarities and differences. They are both different in their location and their wind speed. On the contrary, they both do about the same amount of damage and where you should hide is similar. To begin with, hurricanes and tornados vary in their location.
The Great New England Hurricane of 1938 was one of the most destructive and devastating hurricanes in history. The conditions (strong winds, pouring rain, and high waves) are a large part of what made the storm so powerful, but the element of surprise and the speed at which it traveled were what caused so many losses. The impacts of the 1938 hurricane will be remembered for a long time to come. The 1938 storm formed on September 13 northwest of the Cape Verde Islands off the coast of Africa, reaching hurricane strength just three days later. Soon, the storm was 500 miles wide, with winds of more than 155 miles per hour.

It lasted little over one and a half hours and touched the ground just outside of Oklahoma City, wind wind speed at a record high 301
Hurricanes not only bring devastating storm surges, violent winds, and torrential rainfall, but the aftermath of these storms proves to be costly. According to the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Ivan resulted in over $14.2 billion and Hurricane Katrina produced over $75 billion in damages. After witnessing the devastation of these hurricanes, I remain determined to improve structures on the Gulf Coast.
