The 11 Most Horrifying Disasters That Ever Happened In Texas

While the benefits of living in Texas far outweigh the cons, we do suffer from natural disasters quite a bit – a consequence of being in a tropical climate AND right on the coast. I’d like to think that all the hurricanes and floods we’ve been through have only made us stronger, however. Each time we endure a storm, we become better equipped to handle them in the future. While the following catastrophes were tragic indeed, forgetting about them wouldn’t be doing proper justice to those who lived (and unfortunately died) through them. That being said, these disasters definitely tested the mighty force that is the Texas spirit – but not even Mother Nature is a match for us.

Were you alive for any of these disasters? If not, have you heard stories from your parents and grandparents about them? What’s the worst storm you’ve ever weathered in Texas?
