With a name like "doomer" and a forecast like that it cant be good.
I know whereforth I speak.

Having lived all my live on the Georgia coast I've learned to live with these monsters. We had a real scare with HUGO in 1989. It ended up clobbering Charleston, S.C. which is only about 100 miles up the coast as the crow flies. The devastation had to be seen to be believed. We went up there a few weeks after it hit and it still looked like a war zone. Just to the north of Charleston on Hwy 17 there used to be miles and miles of tall pines. After Hugo, they looked like the Tunguska explosion, all laying down in the same direction. Charleston itself was littered with debris and there was not a business sign left intact. Nasty stuff, really.
