PHIL Image 8155

ID#:8155
Description:This 1989 photograph showed disaster relief volunteer workers as they were organizing a large supply of food, which was donated to victims of hurricane Hugo.

Late in the evening on September 21, 1989, the eye of Hurricane Hugo struck the coast of South Carolina north of Charleston. Winds of 135 mph, a tidal surge of 12-17 feet and heavy rains killed dozens of people, and caused 7 billion dollars in damage. CDC personnel were deployed to assist communicable disease and safety-related issues.
