15 years ago hurricane Charley hit SWFL, Friday 13th, 2004.. The first major hurricane since Donna in 1960. It was just my 2nd summer here and I couldn't believe a major hurricane was heading right to my new home. That was an afternoon I will never forget. https://t.co/xYaltoC0Gk
LIVE: It's a Tuesday morning edition of 'Coffee Talk', and we're looking a bit grey- Fog and clouds help us out the door, but a pretty stormy pattern has set up. Let's look at that, look back 15 years ago on Hurricane Charley, and check tropics today. N https://t.co/zJ45Njehgl

Born & raised in Florida. Been through a lot of hurricanes and Tropical storms. Hurricane Charley was probably the worst one I can remember. Lightning cracked our huge oak tree in half. Cars were shaking so bad I thought they would turn over. I was living East of I 75 on a farm https://t.co/VZjNGZIEWu
It's crazy to think that Hurricane Charley made landfall 15 years ago. It was the beginning of two years of pure hell when it came to hurricane landfalls. 2004-05 were seasons that renewed my curiosity in weather/damage and lead me to Assurant.
Remembering #Hurricane #Charley... which hit #SWFL 15 years ago today. I remember watching the images from Texas, where I worked at the time and remember thinking how devastating it was. Where were you? https://t.co/wKD8KWzSzn
