As crews evacuated from Live 5′s former studio on East Bay Street the night Hurricane Hugo made landfall, Debi Chard continued live coverage from the Charleston County Emergency Preparedness Command Center.
"And then remember we didn't have any electricity so it was also very dark. So not only is the water coming in, but it's really dark so you can't see who's next to you, what's next to you at that point. So yeah, it was very scary."
We've got all the businesses going again, we didn't really lose many people. A couple of families said we think we'd rather live somewhere else, but all the local people that were here during Hugo got rebuilt and they're back here. And we're actually experiencing a little bit of a building boom.
