By the time the storm reached the Texas coast south of Galveston late on September 8, it was a Category 4 hurricane.After landfall, the cyclone turned northward through the Great Plains.
Storm tides of 8 to 15 ft inundated the whole of Galveston Island, as well as other portions of the nearby Texas coast.
It became extratropical and turned east-northeastward on September 11, passing across the Great Lakes, New England, and southeastern Canada.
It was last spotted over the north Atlantic on September 15.
These tides were largely responsible for the 8,000 deaths (estimates range from 6,000 to 12,000) attributed to the storm.
