Riley was in his City Hall office when Hurricane Hugo crashed ashore on Sept. 21, 1989, ripping the roof off City Hall. A quarter century  later Riley, the longest-serving mayor in Charleston history, says the preparation and the recovery from the storm were the most important time in his service to the city. Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014 is the 25th anniversary of Hugo's landfall. (AP Photo/Bruce Smith)
