Today is 105th anniversary of the 1900 unnamed hurricane that destroyed Galveston, Sept. 8, 1900. http://www.galvnews.com/story.lasso?ewcd=6bd8aef0607408e0 From staff reports The Daily News Published September 8, 2005 GALVESTON Today marks the 105th anniversary of the unnamed hurricane that destroyed this island city, killed somewhere between 6,000 and 12,000 people and inspired one of historys most amazing feats of civil engineering. More chronologically significant anniversaries have come and gone the first, the 50th and the 100th. But none of those had the grim contemporary context of this anniversary, coming as the nation reels from the first great storm of the new century, the storm that could unseat Galveston from its sad place in the history of calamity. While we hear of the comparison between Katrina and Camille, Betsey, Andrew and Ivan, practically no one mentions the formerly deadliest storm in US history. This happened before any of us were born, but its toll on human life was immeasureable - at least until now.
