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.
