Stormy Summer 2019: Series Overview

Throughout August and September 2019, we’ll remember the anniversaries of hurricanes that struck North Carolina 20 years ago, 30 years ago… and all the way back to 140 years in the past.

Stormy Summer 2019

To bring a unique perspective about these storms, we’ve scoured the record books and historical reports for details that didn’t make the top news stories at the time, and talked to people across the state who saw the impacts first-hand.

This series won’t cover every storm to affect North Carolina. For example, we looked back at Fran on its 20-year anniversary a few years ago. However, it will tell the tales of several storms that shaped our state, from Hugo’s wind-whipped fury in the western Piedmont to Floyd’s flooding in the Coastal Plain and more.
