Hurricane Dorian makes landfall at Cape Hatteras, N.C.

Charleston, a historic port city of handsome antebellum homes, is on a peninsula that is prone to flooding even from ordinary storms. And it took an attack. Dorian toppled some 150 trees, swamped roads and brought down power lines, officials said, but the flooding and wind weren’t nearly as bad as feared. Several gusts of 75 to 80 mph were reported in Charleston Harbor early in the afternoon, as the storm’s eye moved just northeast of the city.
