Tomorrow (Patriot Day) will be nineteen years since the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center, The Pentagon, and just outside Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  A total of 2,977 people were killed.  This event in American History should never be forgotten.  Each year a moment of silence is observed to correspond with the attacks, beginning at 8:46 a.m. (EDT), the time the first plane, American Airlines Flight 11, struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

We all should be aware that it is that time of year to look at hurricane safety and planning.  A copy of the South Carolina Hurricane Guide for 2020 can be obtained by using this link:
