Galveston, Texas


Check out Galveston, Texas from above in this drone video by Lone Star Drones.  The city sits on a long, narrow island of the Gulf of Mexico, southeast of Houston.  Galveston was the sight of the USA's most deadly natural disaster: the Great Galveston Hurricane of 1900, when a category 4 storm hit the island with full force and without sufficient warning.    The storm killed between 8-12k people (up to a third of the city's population) and the city never recovered its status as a "twin" city to Houston.
