Galveston Hurricane 1900

The hurricane that hit Galveston Island was the deadliest natural disaster that the United States has ever experienced.
With a population of  37,789; the island-city and port of Galveston, (nicknamed the  “Wall Street of the Southwest), ” was the main port  for  exporting  and trading of cotton for most of the southwestern United States. It was considered a  growing and well-to-do city,  on its way up.

Though Galvestonians knew about the oncoming storm,  they  were calmed by officials into not evacuating. On September 8, 1900 In 1990, the   hurricane  hit full-force, the island which was at most 8 feet above sea level, battered the city with  140 miles per hour winds.  A steamship smashed into 3 bridges, destroying any last-minute hope of escape. Floodwaters were 20 feet high.

After the storm subsided,  not a single building on the island avoided damage. 6,000 to 10,000 men, women and children died and another six thousand were badly injured. 2,636 homes were lost.

Galveston hurricane as a World Fair project was immediate. Damage was recorded all the way up in Buffalo as the Pan-Am fair was gearing up. Reports are there wasnt one apple throughout New England. One fatality in abuffalo when a lady touched a down powerline.

This storm was used to blame damage in the entire eastern half of America. Every city that reported damage were all really one big snake. All World Fair Spook towns like NYC and Boston and Philly.

The World Fairs were the places that the big NWO projects were put on display, they were a celbration. A trinute to the NWO and there deeds. Its also the place inventions were developed and the speed of development could be regulated.

As the `Great Flood’  was only four years ago (and still fresh in most people’s minds), the World’s Fair officials were sensitive to the gruesome carnage that the catastrophe depicted.

On the stage of the large hall the fairgoers could view  the city of Galveston reproduced in grand scale. Miniatures were masterly combined with murals to join  a quite realistic look.   Boats sailed, trains crossed Galveston bridge via bridge, the sun was shining, electric cars passed through the streets. All was calm.  Then, the clouds gathered, and the wind and the rain began their bombardment of the city-island. Through dramatic narration, miniatures, water lighting and special effects, attractions illustrated the enormous power of mother nature.  The city was in ruins. But the show did not end on a sad, bleak note, they depicted  a better and brighter new Galveston, rebuilt by American resources and courage.

This attraction was a near-identical one at New Jersey’s Luna Park.

Old World artifact is credited for saving Galveston during the 1915 hurricane, not the 1900. The same team of engineers chosen to elevate the wall by about 15 feet are the ones credited for building the panama canal and raising the city of Chicago.

The most dramatic effort to protect the city was its raising. Dredged sand was used to raise the city of Galveston by as much as 17 feet (5.2 m) above its previous elevation. Over 2,100 buildings were raised in the process,[16] including the 3,000-ton St. Patrick’s Church. The seawall and raising of the island were jointly named a National Historical Civil Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers in 2001.

Elevating the town
This massive structure is said to be the orphans home before the flood. The only support is the hand painted sign on the corner of the fence reading so. As if the builders of the house couldn’t come up with a sign. I also notice the sunken dirt road with a ramp going up to the sidewalk, freshly planted saplings and power lines. Like in Johnstown the powerlines were added to date the photos. Thats a lot of work only to trash the town shortly thereafter. who knows the real date.

The Galveston Orphans home was founded by a local journalist. The fake history might have something to do with William Randolph Hearst, the Big Shot from the city that held a benefit at his Astoria Hotel in NYC to raise funds for the orphanage. Among the guests were Mark Twain, appropriate since his fixation with young children, like his Angelfish club.

 “At the first news of the disaster by cyclone and tidal wave that devastated Galveston on Saturday, Sept. 8th, 1900, we equipped a party of photographers and sent them by special train to the scene of the ruins. Arriving at the scene of desolation shortly after the storm had swept over that city, our party succeeded, at the risk of life and limb, in taking about a thousand feet of moving pictures. In spite of the fact that Galveston was under martial law and that the photographers were shot down at sight by the excited police guards, a very wide range of subject has been secured. The series, taken as a whole, will give the entire world a definite idea of the terrible disaster, unequaled since the Johnstown flood of 1889”

T. Edison

The statement that “photographers were being shot down on site” gives me a boner.


The debris field is very similar to the flood at Johnstown in 1889. Even some of the pictures of damaged houses are labeled the same, probs they belong to neither but still use the same label.

The storyline is similar also. At the end the bosses all get together and start an insurance scam off of bogus claims. One of the main ones being Hearst, the media mogul connected to the hunt club in Johnstown and the Leo Frank case in ATL.

Clara Barton makes her final appearance, organizing relief efforts with her Red Cross foundation, which is just another funneling operation; there are no victims.

There were not many images of supposed bodies. There are several hundred recorded but there is only a few images that show a dummy or someone playing possum. This time there are thousand and thousands of supposed bodies but none are in the photo. There are overalls stuffed with straw and wheel barrows full of sacks but no bodies.

TX City Disaster of ’47

The 1947 Texas City disaster was an industrial accident that occurred on April 16, 1947, in the port of Texas CityTexas, United States, located in Galveston Bay. It was the deadliest industrial accident in U.S. history .

I picked to showcase this bc one of the main characters is a Monsanto plant that explodes first after the nitrate ship. The other players are Big Oil.

Name of ship is a play on words, Wilson B. Keen

The explosion was triggered by a mid-morning fire on board the French-registered vessel SS Grandcamp (docked at port), which detonated her cargo of about 2,300 tons (about 2,100 metric tons) of ammonium nitrate.[1] This started a chain reaction of fires and explosions aboard other ships and in nearby oil-storage facilities, ultimately killing at least 581 people, including all but one member of Texas City’s volunteer fire department.[2]: 100 

The disaster drew the first class action lawsuit against the United States government, on behalf of 8,485 plaintiffs, under the 1946 Federal Tort Claims Act.

At 9:12 a.m., the ammonium nitrate reached an explosive threshold from the combination of heat and pressure.[7]Grandcampdetonated, causing utter destruction within 2,000 feet and extreme damage throughout the port. The tremendous blast produced a 15 ft (4.6 m) tsunami and a shockwave, levelling nearly 1,000 buildings on land.[2]: 3  Among the buildings destroyed was a Monsanto Chemical Company plant, killing 145 of its 450 workers.

The disaster received national media attention, with offers of assistance coming from around the country. Several funds were established to handle donations, particularly the Texas City Relief Fund, created by the city’s mayor Curtis Trahan.[11] One of the largest fundraising efforts for the city and the victims of the disaster was organized by Sam Maceo, one of the two brothers who ran organized crime in Galveston at the time. Maceo organized a large-scale benefit on the island, featuring entertainers including Phil HarrisFrank Sinatra, and Ann Sheridan.[12][13] In the end, the Texas City Relief Fund raised more than $1 million ($13.9 million in today’s terms). Payouts for fire insurance claims reached nearly $4 million ($51.8 million in today’s terms).[11]

Within days of the disaster, major companies that had lost facilities in the explosions announced plans to rebuild in Texas City and in some cases to expand their operations. Some companies implemented policies of retaining all of the hourly workers who had previously worked at destroyed facilities with plans to use them in the rebuilding.[11] Cost estimates of the industrial reconstruction were estimated at approximately $100 million ($1.31 billion adjusted for inflation).[11]

“Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the explosion (…), just as the Phoenix bird symbolizes resurrection from the ashes of despair, the ‘Phoenix Fountain’ epitomizes courage and the triumph of the human spirit. (…) Chewelah, Washington Artist David Govedare was commissioned by Mayor Charles T. Doyle (…) [to] produce this twelve foot sculpture from half inch cor-ten steel. Architect Joseph Allen Hoover and City Engineer James McWhorter designed the fountain built by Texas City’s Public Works Department.”[14]
