  • Top 10 cities at risk from hurricane damage

    9. Charleston, S.C.

    The oldest city in South Carolina, Charleston sits on an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean near two rivers. The abundance of water surrounding it means that 85,730 homes are at risk of damage from a hurricane. The most devastating storm, Hugo, came ashore in 1989 and damaged at least 75 percent of homes in the city's historic district. Charleston's location makes it vulnerable to hurricanes and storms every year.
