Must have been the Gulf/South Texas hurricane of 1919. The really big one was the Galveston hurricane in 1900.

I still haven't seen whether that plastics chemical plant north-east of Houston went boom yet. My mother was born and lived in the Houston area and I still have photos in the family archives of another major flood from c. 1920. I'd have to dig out the photos to see if one is dated on the back to know for sure when it happened. Could have been anywhere from 1910 to 1930.
