Perched off the coast of Texas in the Gulf of Mexico, Galveston Island is a haven for beachgoers all year long. But it's also in a precarious position each time a hurricane takes aim at the Gulf Coast. Most recently, in 2008 the northern end of the island took a blow from Hurricane Ike, with winds of 110 mph and a 13-foot storm surge that inflicted long-term damage to residential and commercial properties.
