The Great Galveston Hurricane of 1900 remains the single deadliest disaster in U.S. history — killing more than the1906 San Francisco Earthquake and Fire, the 9/11 attacks, and Hurricane Katrina combined. Galveston took years to rebuild, raising the elevation of its structures and building a 3 mile long sea wall.
