2008: Hurricane Ike makes landfall on the Texas Gulf Coast, causing heavy damage to Galveston Island, Houston and surrounding areas. Ike would be the second-costliest hurricane ever to make landfall in the United States, with its $29.5 billion in property damage trailing only Hurricane Katrina, and the costliest hurricane in Texas history. The storm also would end up claiming the lives of 82 people in the United States.
