What was the deadliest day in US history? | Live Science

What was the deadliest day in US history? | Live Science | SAN ANTONIO XYZ | Scoop.it
That said, we can make a few educated guesses. "If it's just the total number of deaths in one day from a specific event on a specific day, I think nothing comes close to the Galveston Hurricane on Sept. 8, 1900," Hacker said. The hurricane, which struck Texas as a Category 4 hurricane with winds from 130 to 156 mph (209 to 251 km/h), is also known as "The Great Storm of 1900," and is often described as the deadliest natural disaster in U.S. history, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Between 8,000 and 12,000 people were killed during the hurricane, NOAA said in a 2011 report. Back in 1900, roughly 3,500 people died each day, on average, said Hacker, so the storm was an especially lethal event.

About that rescue boat: How the Bexar County Sheriff’s Foundation actually works

About that rescue boat: How the Bexar County Sheriff’s Foundation actually works | SAN ANTONIO XYZ | Scoop.it
Sheriff Javier Salazar's request to buy a rescue boat with money from the nonprofit he created in 2019 raises a question: how is that money overseen?
Al Cannistra's insight:

A generous company wants to donate a boat to our Sherriff’s Dept results in all this ruckus – why?

.

Why do we need an “Area Foundation” (where does their funding come from?) – another bureaucratic layer playing the game “mine is bigger than yours?” We elect the sheriff as an executive, if he decides to accept the boat it should be his decision – with the responsibility for what happens as a result of acceptance.

.

Isn’t a sheriff’s time better spent doing sheriff things? The boat donation and acceptance could have been done in 2 hours.
