Wreckage left after the storm surge receded.
It is estimated that up to 6,000 people died on Galveston Island alone.
After the water receded, a sand slurry was pumped in from the ship channel to raise the level of the island.
The seawall is around 17 feet high.  It was backfilled with sand dredged from the ship channel.
