When The 1900 Galveston Hurricane Sunk Galveston Island, Texas Just Raised The Island

Submitted by: trimble 6 months ago in Science


Wikipedia: On September 8, 1900, the greatest natural disaster to ever strike the United States occurred at Galveston. In the early evening hours of September 8, the Galveston hurricane of 1900 came ashore, bringing with it a great storm surge that inundated most of Galveston Island and the city of Galveston. As a result, much of the city was destroyed, and at least 6,000 people were killed in a few hours.
