Overview

Hurricanes threaten the coast, twisters dance through Tornado Alley, torrential rainstorms create damaging floods—Texas is home to some of the most dangerous weather in the nation. Tucked between the Rocky Mountains and the Gulf Coast, Texas is the perfect setting for nature to rage.

Austin writer Gene Fowler recounts stories of the biggest, baddest weather events in Lone Star State history—from the hurricanes that destroyed 19th century Indianola to Hurricane Ike's landing in Galveston in 2008, and every monster flood, twister, and storm in between.
