Hurricane Linda was the twelfth named storm and seventh hurricane of the 1980 Planet Ceres Atlantic hurricane season. It hit South Carolina in October of 1980, causing moderate to heavy damage. Although operationally a strong tropical storm, Linda was later re-analyzed to have briefly become a minimal hurricane just hours before landfall. Linda was responsible for 10 deaths, $100 million (1980 USD) in damage, and one of the latest and most active tornado outbreaks either Carolina has ever seen, producing 25 tornadoes across three states (the third was Pennsylvania). Despite the damage, the name Linda was not retired the following spring. Although inactivity prevented the use of the name in 1986 and 1992, the name was reused in 1998 and 2004, and is now on the list for the 2010 season.
