Port Arthur, TX

PO Port Arthur TX

Port Arthur, Texas, was flooded by the Hurricane of 1915 which hit the Gulf coast the night of Aug. 16th-17th. The wind forced the waters of Sabine Lake into downtown Port Arthur, and reversed the course of the Neches River, which turned and ran upstream. Port Arthur is also remembered as the birthplace of Janis Joplin.
