Isaacs Storm: A Man, A time and the Deadliest Hurricane in History
Residents of Galveston, TX, awoke on September 8, 1900, to odd weather conditions and strange deep-sea swells.Even the local meteorologist, Isaac Cline, failed to understand the significance of what was to come later that day.This very readable account of the monster Galveston hurricane; its destruction and aftermath; the contemporary U. S. Weather Bureau; our current understanding of the science of hurricanes; and Isaac’s experiences before and during the storm gives readers an understanding of the greatest natural disaster in American history.
