Galveston Storm of 1900: 120th Anniversary – September 8th

On September 8, 120 years ago, a biblical level hurricane struck Galveston Island with no advance warning. The hurricane is said to have been a Cat 4. Over 8000 souls died including my great grandfather Giovanni Carlo Bernardoni who died saving another family. The cataclysmic trauma ripped a hole in the soul of Texas that has never healed. The victims remain unheard and forgotten. Honor the dead!
