I totally agree with you Rasvar, If Charley would have sat off the coast for about 2 or 3 more hours we probably would have had a Cat 5. Another thing that minimized damage was how fast it strengthened. The surge wasnt as high because it didnt have a long time to really build up a large surge. The damage would have been alot worse also if it had moved a little slower inland, so instead of seeing 2 hours of bad weather, u'd see 3, 4 maybe 5. I would like to say they got lucky, but really they didnt at all. I guess you could say, things could have been worse.
