S. CON. RES. 134
Whereas September 8, 2000 marks the 100th anniversary of the hurricane that
struck Galveston, Texas on September 8, 1900, the deadliest natural
disaster in United States history;
Whereas an estimated 6,000 people died in a few hours in this thriving port of
37,000, dubbed the ``Wall Street of the West'' at the dawn of the 20th
Whereas vast waves, surging flood waters, and powerful winds of more than 120
miles an hour overtook the town, in an era without radar, satellites, or
modern radio, making off-shore hurricanes difficult to track;
Whereas the residents of Galveston island showed much courage and sacrifice
during the tempest, exemplified by 10 nuns who lost their lives along
with the 90 children they were trying to save at St. Mary's Orphanage on
Whereas Galveston never lost her resilient spirit, built a sturdy 17-foot sea
wall that staved off other fierce hurricanes, pumped in millions of tons
of sand from the Gulf of Mexico in order to raise the level of the city
and its buildings to a safer height, and became a beautiful and
prosperous town yet again;
Whereas the city of Galveston is this year holding a ceremony commemorating the
hurricane, launching educational efforts, and celebrating the rebirth of
Galveston after the storm; and
Whereas our Nation, which benefits from modern weather technology and the
lessons learned from the Galveston tragedy, should never cease to
improve hurricane forecasting and make life safer and more secure along
our coasts: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring),
(1) September 8, 2000 is designated as Galveston Hurricane
National Remembrance Day; and
(2) the President is authorized and requested to issue a
proclamation in memory of the thousands of Galvestonians and
other Americans who lost their lives in the devastating
hurricane of 1900 and the survivors who rebuilt Galveston.
Passed the Senate September 6, 2000.
