Business owners recall close call with Hugo

Terry and Bobbie Smoak have been selling Charleston- and Lowcountry-themed gifts at their Charleston Collection stores for 27 years. When Hugo hit, they had several stores in the Lowcountry, including downtown Charleston, Isle of Palms and Kiawah Island. They now operate one store, in West Ashley across from the Citadel Mall. In the hours before Hugo hit, Terry Smoak and his daughter, Ashley Smoak Corley, were photographed boarding up the stores against the wind and water.
