palmerjacob39 This picture was taken by photographer Johnny Hanson as Hurricane Ike slammed against the Texas coast in early September 2008. I found this picture tonight and thought it was very moving, particularly because the statue in the foreground is a memorial to the lost in the Great Storm, or the Great Galveston Flood of 1900. I know I take a lot of selfies on my IG and a lot of other random shit, but for those of you who read this, know that I started writing my first book, a novel, a historical fiction about the Great Storm. I fully expect my book to hit shelves sometime in 2018. #galveston #thegreatstorm #ushistory #myfirstnovel #hurricane #hurricaneike #thegreatflood #texas #houston 7d

jennifer_dell I know that this is not my norm... but I have seen this boat every time Bryan and I go out on the boat ever since the very first time he took me out for a sunset cruise on our third date. It was displaced during Hurricane Ike about 8.5 years ago. I always wished I had my camera to grab a quick shot in the right light. Finally I had a chance! #happyplace #boat #surfside #hurricaneIke #jenniferdellphotography #galvestonisland #d4 #nikon #houstonphotographer #gulfcoast #gulfbay #texas 1w

brianjamesphoto On today's rainy day, and for the last photo of this nature challenge... I am posting a photo about the strength and power of Mother Nature. This is view of a harbor in #galveston #texas, showing the aftermath of #HurricaneIke, circa '08. A beautiful sunset on such a damaged scene. #hurricanedamage #galvestontexas #naturephotography #nikonnofilter #brianjamesphoto #challengeonnaturephotography 2w

fema These orphaned baby squirrels were rescued after Hurricane Ike hit Texas in 2008, and we couldn't resist posting this photo in honor of #squirrelappreciationday. Pet and wildlife rescues are actually a big part of disaster response, and we work closely with agencies like the @ASPCA and our Urban Search and Rescue Teams to facilitate animal rescues. What happened to these three? Volunteers from the @ASPCA nursed these babies back to health and released them back to the wild. 2w

nauticalsails This is where I live. This is also when Hurricane Ike hit us in September of 2008. This just shows how very close I live to the Gulf of Mexico. The only way in and out of our small town is over bridges that cross over the Gulf waters. It was a disaster area.
