King Street, guarded by Charleston police after Hurricane Hugo in 1989, above, and today with no power lines above ground, is now greener with more trees and colorful facades. Pawleys Island chapel, above, three days after Hurricane Hugo destroyed much of the coastal town between Myrtle Beach and Georgetown in 1989. A Sunday Service 10 a.m. sign in 1989 lays on the floor next to a painting of Jesus, is now a Sunday Worship 10 a.m. for all people.A man walks the Historic Charleston City Market, on South Market Street, above, September 24, 1989, three days after Hurricane Hugo damaged buildings on the South Carolina coast. Below, a Charleston carriage tour company carries a group on one of many daily tours through the historic city, each one randomly chosen by a random lottery. Dan Garrison, left, shovels mud out his sister Frances Graham's house, across the street from the marina in McClellanville in 1989. The mud inside the house was eight feet high. Graham avoided the storm by staying with her son-in-law in Walhalla. Bennie Marshall, below, who bought the same home in 2014 with his wife Elizabeth, has been renovating the home built in 1904, keeping the same floors and paint color. The surge of water from Hurricane Hugo left a mark, with a mud line near the top of the doorway. (top photo by Nancy Fitzgerald, Independent Mail staff,<p>Article source: <a href=
