America's Deadliest Storm

September 8 is the anniversary of a tremendously important event in the history of Galveston and Texas. It was on the evening of September 8, 1900 that a category 4 hurricane hit Galveston and nearly wiped it off the map. It was the deadliest natural disaster in US history, killing somewhere between 6,000 and 12,000 people. Before the storm, Galveston was a rich, cultured, and thriving seaport city. Afterward, it was mud, ruins, and dead bodies. It’s a truly dramatic story. For more information, check out the library’s nonfiction and fictional materials, including:
