Coming into the year 1900, things looked amazing for America. Just a few years earlier the Dow Jones Industrial Average was established, Coca-Cola© was first sold in bottles, Aspirin was invented, and the Boston Marathon was held for the first time. America was more powerful than ever and was on the move. Nevertheless, if you lived on the coast, you always had a slight chance of a tropical storm or at worst a hurricane – but it was only a chance. Sadly, the city of Galveston, Texas lost the roll of the meteorological dice and suffered what was the most deadly hurricane in U.S. history.
