    Roar ashore

    What does "roar ashore" really mean in the following construction?

    "Hurricane Hermine roars ashore south of Tallahassee, Florida."

    Full explanation would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Re: Roar ashore

    The use of "roars" indicates the ferocity of the storm.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
