On September 16, 1988, Hurricane Gilbert made landfall at the Mexican city of La Pesca,Tamaulipas, with winds of 125 mph (200 km/hr). It had already brought destruction upon the Yucatan peninsula and the Caribbean islands. Along the way it set a new low-pressure record that would stand for 17 years. Gilbert was a classic Cape … Continue reading 30th Anniversary of Hurricane Gilbert

In the early morning hours of August 18, 1983, Hurricane Alicia made landfall at San Luis Pass, Texas, just southwest of the Galveston area. Its 115 mph (185 km/hr) winds slammed the high rises of Houston leaving billions of dollars in damage in its wake. Like many tropical storms that form during low-activity years, Alicia … Continue reading 35th Anniversary of Hurricane Alicia
