Senator Scott Statement on 25th Anniversary of Hurricane Hugo

Charleston, SC – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the following statement regarding of the 25th anniversary of Hurricane Hugo’s landfall in South Carolina. ?

?”Hurricane Hugo’s landfall in the Lowcountry made an indelible mark on our state. At the time it was the most damaging hurricane our nation had ever seen, and we continue to mourn those who lost their lives. ?

?My overwhelming memory of Hugo and the days after, however, is not of tragedy but of kindness. Not of terror but of friendship. Not of homes being ripped apart, but of communities coming together. Our state may have gotten knocked down, but we stood back up, dusted ourselves off, and worked together to rebuild. ? ?

That is what makes South Carolina great, and what makes me proud to call it home.”
