Surf of the Gulf of Mexico laps at pilings under the decaying Flagship Hotel, Galveston, Texas.
A storm approaches the Galveston Seawall, which was built between 1902 and 1904 as protection from future hurricanes after the devastation brought about from the 1900 hurricane that killed at least 6,000 people on the island.
The Flagship Hotel, built on a pier extending from Galveston’s Seawall Boulevard out into the Gulf of Mexico, sits damaged and abandoned in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike.
