The deadliest natural disaster to strike the United States was "The 1900 Storm" that struck Galveston, Texas, on September 8, 1900. Thousands lost their lives in that hurricane, but it wasn't the only hurricane to blow into Texas. This app, Texas Hurricanes, is an app reviewing the tropical storms and hurricanes that have hit the Texas Coast from 1851 to present.
Some of the data is imprecise, but we've done our best to research the information. For each storm we provide:
- the name
- date it made landfall
- time of day it made landfall
- where it made landfall
- its winds at landfall
- landfall pressure
- the highest classification/category it reached
- the highest winds it produced
- the U.S. costs
- the number of deaths in Texas
- the track it took
Users can sort the data by landfalling categories, by years, coastal sections, months, and major hurricanes.
There are also tables for the most intense, costliest, and deadliest storms.
An interactive map allows users to review where each storm made landfall, and review some specifics about the storm.
Overall, it provides a quick recap of over 100 tropical cyclones that have impacted the Texas Coast.
- Adjusted a handful of hurricane’s information after reviewing more data.
- Updated the large track map to include dots for all tropical cyclone classifications
- Added a small track map to every tropical cyclone details page
