When Hurricane Hugo hit the East Coast of the United States in 1989, roofing contractor Edward Murton traveled to Charleston from Miami to assist with reconstruction. Hugo’s devastation was vast, and the city was in dire need of aid.
“I just decided to drive up to Charleston to see where I could help,” Murton said.
What Murton witnessed made a deep impression on him and inspired him to write about his experiences as an emergency roofer.
In Hurricane Hugo, Murton relates how his company played a vital role in reopening Charleston’s school system, completing dry-ins for 34 schools and reroofing 27 schools. He also assisted at the South Carolina Ports Authority, reroofing building 318 and repairing the administration building and at the naval shipyard, reroofing building 198, building 41 and the administration office. All in all, Murton’s company completed over six million dollars in work.
“Since Hugo, we have assisted with cleanup in the aftermath of 10 major hurricanes,” Murton said. “My next book will be on Hurricane Andrew which hit right in my own backyard.”
