The sea wall on the East Coast of Galveston Island stands as a buffer between the mighty forces if the Gulf and the city of Galveston. Eight months after Hurricane Ike hit Galveston in September 2008, the sea wall and beach remain in the upheaveled condition left by Ike. Many street lights are not working and temporary STOP signs are posted on lamp posts. The majority of the beautiful canopy trees that lined Broadway, the main boulevard used to enter the island, are dead. They were killed by rising sea water from the other side of the island. The two top granite stones in the center of this image were both moved inland about four inches by the forces of Ike. This monument was errected at the completion of the sea wall after the Great Hurricane that virtually destroyed the island in 1900.
