Event Frances (by HanKFranK)
     Frances finally came ashore on this date in 2004, slowly working its way inland near Stuart. The broad core of the category 2 hurricane caused widespread moderate wind damage in much of east and central Florida. Frances had been an intense category 4 days earlier, but had unwound some as it slowly crossed the Bahamas. The weakened remnants of the hurricane spawned impressive tornado outbreaks up the east coast, with particularly large numbers in South Carolina and Virginia--a total of 101 tornadoes overall. Seven died directly from the hurricane, and damage totals were just below 9 billion dollars.
Event Fran (by HanKFranK)
     On the evening of this date in 1996, Hurricane Fran blew ashore near Wilmington, NC. Winds at landfall were around 115 MPH, with a pressure at 954 mb... making it the first major hurricane to directly hit North Carolina in 42 years. Fran caused modest damage near the coast and significant flooding in parts of the mid-Atlantic. Damage totalled at 3.2 billion and the death toll was 34.
