Isaac's storm : a man, a time, and the deadliest hurricane in history by Erik Larson( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 3,729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Isaac Cline was one of the era's new men, a scientist who believed he knew all there was to know about the motion of clouds and the behavior of storms. The idea that a hurricane could damage the city of Galveston, Texas, where he was based was to him preposterous. It is the story of what can happen when human arrogance meets nature's last uncontrollable force, based on Cline's own letters, telegrams, and reports, the testimony of scores of survivors, and our latest understanding of the hows and whys of great storms

Isaac's storm : the drowning of Galveston, 8 September 1900 by Erik Larson( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On September 8, 1900, the deadliest hurricane in American history ploughed into the unprepared port of Galveston, Texas. One-hundred-and-fifty mile an hour winds shredded clapperboard houses with the force of dynamite. The sea followed, a solid wall of water twenty feet high. The city's highest point was nine feet above sea level. Overnight between six and ten thousand people lost their lives, houses were reduced to matchwood, and bodies were strewn miles inland across the prairie. It was, and still is, the worst natural disaster ever to strike the United States. At the turn of the century the new US Weather Bureau had the finest forecasting technology at their disposal. With this 'perfect science' they were confident they were in control of the world, that the new century would be the American century. And in Galveston, Texas they had one of their most dependable meteorologists, Isaac Cline. Cline, like the rest of America, believed that man's ingenuity had tamed nature. He believed there was nothing to fear. Fatally, Cline failed to read the signs until it was too late. By then, the bath-houses on the sea-front were being crushed by rolling breakers, children were playing unawares in the rising water, the railway line was underwater, and ships in the bay were fighting for their lives."

" ... The new-fangled meteorological instruments in which, against his better instincts, head meteorologist Isaac Cline of Galveston, Texas placed his trust on Sept. 8, 1900 dispelled his dark foreboding and signalled "all clear". Yet at the end of the day he was faced with countless victims and a scene of umimaginable devastation. One of the worst hurricanes in recorded history had razed the peace-loving and prosperous town of Galveston to the ground"--Preface
