Billed as America's deadliest disaster ever was the hurricane/flood in Galveston, Texas in 1900. The loss of life was in the 6-8 thousand range.
Several books have been recently released and also a memorial edition back in 1900 similar to the Titanic memorial books.

In North Carolina, it was the great flood of 1916 which is still the storm to compare all storms to. This was in July of 1916 and it was caused by remnants of a tropical storm.
