Town Resurges 20 Years After Hurricane Hugo

Real Estate Agent with MCVL Realty

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since Hurricane Hugo muddied McClellanville’s timeline. The town has made anamazing comeback and it’s finally to the point that you don’t hear that four-letter word in everyday communication now.  I certainly couldn’t say that 10 years ago.  Time was still measured in terms of “before Hugo” and “after Hugo”, but that past is becoming more and more distant.  This anniversary will come and go and my phone will cease to ring from reporters who read my first article about Hugo looking for an interview, maybe a before and after article or  a “Where are They Now” piece to catch America up on what the little Village that could has been up to.  They want me to point them in the direction of the best scoop, the biggest tear-jerker, or most triumphant return from despair.  Well the truth is that’s the whole Village, that’s McClellanville.
