The hurricane, or the 1900 Storm, as it became known, was a tidal wave that struck Galveston on September 8, 1900. The storm took the lives of 6,000 people, mostly by drowning. After the storm, the town’s population had been reduced by one-third, counting not only the dead and missing, but the 7,000 who moved out of Galveston and never returned.
