Gracie and Jeanne 

It looks to me like Hurricane Jeanne is following a very similar track (can't link directly to track map) to the one Hurricane Gracie followed back in 1959. Hurricane Gracie is remembered for being one of the worst storms ever to hit South Carolina, along with Hugo, Hazel and the storm of 1893. Jeanne has even appeared at the same time of year as Gracie did.

I hope, of course, that the similarities between these two storms end with the time of year and their tracks so far. Between Charley, Gaston, and Ivan, we've already had enough rough weather in South Carolina this hurricane season.
