I'm in the Hugo zone, myself. Very significant memories from then.

Fran here, at least of the ones listed. That was the first time I'd experienced serious hurricane damage from winds and flooding inland (rather than on the island), which freaked me out--especially since people weren't as prepared to deal with it as they were on the coast.

Bertha (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Bertha_(1996)) in '96 is still my most significant and devastating hurricane memory, though--not only did I weather the worst of the storm alone in a tent on the beach, it also destroyed a lot of my favorite places on the Outer Banks, many of which were never rebuilt. I guess it's not on the list because Fran was the same year and caused more widspread damage.

Floyd sticks in my memory, too, and I wasn't even there for it. It happened just a couple months after I fled NC, caused a significant amount of damage to my childhood home and my friends' homes, and I felt really anxious and guilty about being halfway across the country.

One of my memories with my ex-wife is her and the cat hiding under a bed when Opal hit. IIRC, it was still a category 1 storm when it got to the Atlanta metro. Weirdly I did a hurricane party for Andrew, but we were relatively far away from it. I met my cousin David, who lives in South Carolina, on the year David hit.
