A couple of years ago we (in SC) had 4 named storms blow through in one month (or maybe 5-6 wks). I'd just put out seed for a new lawn. Years ago Hugo ravaged our state from the beach, through the midlands, and then headed north through the upstate. I was out of school for a little bit, though the coastal schools essentially had to end their year because of it.
We get our share. Living 5 hours from the coast is usually sufficient buffer, but on rare occasions the storm makes its way here.
