Journal Entry 4 by wingReallyBookishwing at Furlong, Pennsylvania USA on Saturday, October 24, 2020
This was very good! The portions on the hurricane itself and its aftermath were for me the most compelling. The first section, about the lead-up to the storm, was not quite as interesting to me, since it included topics such as the atmospheric conditions which produce powerful hurricanes, etc. My main interest was in how the residents of Galveston experienced the storm.

The topic is difficult at times, due to the loss of life and the destruction of property and livelihoods. My understanding is that this storm remains the deadliest natural disaster in U.S. history. It can be awe-inspiring, albeit quite sad, to consider the destructive power of the natural world.
