Brazosport Museum of Natural Science to commemorate Hurricane Carla’s 61st anniversary

Whether you lived through Hurricane Carla or not, chances are you’ve heard the stories about the devastation the Category 4 storm caused along the Texas coast. Considered one of the most destructive hurricanes of the 20th century, Carla brought winds in excess of 170 miles per hour and resulted in 43 fatalities and more than $325 million in damage.

Join Brazosport Museum of Natural Science on Sunday, September 11 at 5:30 PM for a program commemorating the 61st anniversary of the day Hurricane Carla made landfall in our area.

The program includes a 25-minute video featuring never-before-seen footage of Freeport and the nearby chemical plants after the storm, including aerial film shot from a helicopter and on the ground. See what neighborhoods looked like, as well as city of Freeport landmarks and the flooded chemical plants. A former president even makes an appearance on his visit to the area.

This program is FREE and open to the public.
