     (Editor's Note: According to the HANDBOOK OF TEXAS, an estimated six to eight thousand people were killed during the devastating hurricane that struck Galveston on 8 September 1900. Due to the high death toll, the 1900 hurricane was, as late as the 1980s, still considered "the worst recorded natural disaster to strike the North American continent." For more details, see the article "Galveston Hurricane of 1900" on pages 64-65 in Volume 3 of THE NEW HANDBOOK OF TEXAS IN SIX VOLUMES (Austin: The Texas State Historical Association, 1996). The article can also be found by visiting the website at and click on Search the Handbook of Texas.)
