In 1900, Isaac Monroe Cline was in charge of the Galveston station of the U.S. Weather Bureau.  He was a knowledgeable, seasoned weatherman who considered himself a scientist.  When he heard the deep thudding of waves on Galveston's beach in the early morning of September 8th, however, Cline refused to be alarmed.  The city had been hit by bad weather before.  But by the time this storm had moved across Galveston, at least 6,000 were dead, and Cline would never look at hurricanes the same way again.  Copies of the book are available at the library.
