South West Florida Hurricane Details:
Hurricane Charley – August 2004
Hurricane Charley was the first of four storms to devastate Florida and other Atlantic regions during 2004. It was one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the United States. Charley struck in August 2004.
When at its peak intensity, Charley reached wind speeds of 150 miles per hour. And when the hurricane hit Florida, it was at its maximum Category 4 status. Before Charley, the strongest hurricane to make contact in Florida had occurred in 1992.
The main areas impacted were Jamaica, South Carolina, North Carolina, Cuba and the Cayman Islands. Unfortunately, deaths were recorded due to the storm, with one person dying in Jamaica, four in Cuba, 29 in Florida and one in Rhode Island due to the storm.
Florida was declared a federal disaster area after the storm by the American government, highlighting just how brutal Charley was for the region. Around $11 million in federal aid made its way to the state in the following months. Southwest Florida was impacted in the worst way, with around $14.6 billion worth of property damage taking place in areas such as Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte.
Around 59 schools in Osceola County, Florida were so badly damaged that students had two weeks without any classes.
