Red Cross worker recalls Hugo damage

Margot Hillman arrived in Santee three weeks after Hurricane Hugo blew through. She was living in Bethlehem, Pa., working as a computer specialist for the Lehigh Valley chapter of the American Red Cross. Between Hugo and the Northern California earthquake that hit less than a month later, the Red Cross was stretched thin. So Hillman headed south, to inland South Carolina, to the service center in Orangeburg County.
