Anniversary of the Galveston Hurricane

Today is the 110th anniversary of the Galveston Hurricane of 1900. The hurricane killed about 8,000 people and is the topic of the excellent book, “Isaac’s Storm.” Isaac was Isaac Cline of the Weather Bureau’s meteorologist assigned to the Galveston office.

Eric Larson did a great job on the book — a story about science that is gripping and engaging.

AccuWeather has more on the anniversary.
