Nothing Could Be Finer Than to be in Carolina

For Hanna, Ike, Josephine.

"Hanna soaks the Carolinas and steams up the seaboard; Storm inflicts little damage; all eyes turn to Ike" by Kevin Sack, New York Times News Service | September 7, 2008

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - With a fearsome Hurricane Ike not far behind, Tropical Storm Hanna cruised ashore in the Carolinas early yesterday, bringing soaking rains and near-hurricane force winds to the coast but doing little immediate damage before pivoting quickly up the Eastern Seaboard.

The storm extended a two-week assault by tropical weather systems on the coastal South that began with Tropical Storm Fay's soggy trek through Florida and continued with Hurricane Gustav's landfall in Louisiana. Next comes Ike, which could still strengthen as it moves through the Atlantic.


God talking to you, Georgie?
