Memories of killer 1900 storm haunt Galveston ahead of Ike
Galveston's history of barely surviving the "Great Storm" of 1900 makes residents inclined to prepare for the worst.
The 1900 hurricane produced a storm surge that submerged Galveston and killed 6,000 people.
My dear friends~even though times are much different than 1900, and preparations have been made ahead of time, the storm is a real threat to our lives and properties. Please pray for my family, and all my fellow Texans, as we now watch and pray as Hurricane Ike approaches the Texas Gulf Coast.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
