Hurricane Disasters

I watched a special on this years and year ago ... Galveston’s hurricane of September 8, 1900. "The deadliest natural disaster in U.S. history ripped into the "Jewel of Texas" one century ago, killing some 8,000 men, women and children and wiping away 12 city blocks -- nearly three-quarters of the island city of Galveston, Texas."

Twisted house and wreckage from that hurricane.

Old newspaper collections of disasters and documentation of other deadly hurricanes.

Do you have friends and family in this part of Texas?

Hey, how did your house paint come out?
