Galveston

The Galveston flood of 1900 was the worst natural disaster in the history of the US (although I guess it’s too early to say whether the situation in New Orleans has surpassed it); somewhere in the region of 8000 people perished and the city was left in ruins. Now Hurricane Rita is heading for Galveston and the city is being evacuated. Let’s hope history doesn’t repeat itself.
