    Hurricane Information

    Texas Hurricanes

    When hurricanes strike populated areas, they can cause massive damage and loss of life. Ten of the 30 worst hurricanes in U.S. history have struck Texas, including the 1900 Galveston hurricane that killed more than 6,000 people. In recent years, thousands of new residents have moved to Texas coastal areas. They have little to no experience with the dangers of hurricanes and tropical storms. Other coastal residents falsely believe they can weather a severe storm with little risk.
