Hurricane Galveston.jpgHurricane season is here. While weather reports follow the path of Earl, we remember five years ago when Katrina wreaked havoc in the Atlantic region, costing at least 1,836 people their lives as well as resulting in property damage estimated at $81 billion.

On September 8, 1900, the most deadly hurricane in U.S. history tore through Galveston, Texas, killing between 6,000 and 8,000 people. To learn more about this spectacular disaster, check out Isaac's Storm by Erik Larson.
