Episode 3:

Hurricane Carla

Houston Public Media

Carla was the strongest, most intense hurricane to make landfall on the Texas coast since the 1886 Indianola Hurricane. Thanks to ample warning, Texas managed to evacuate half a million people from Carla’s path, the largest evacuation to date in U.S. history. Our interviews include a Texas man whose father died in the storm.
