History

Civil War

Two major battles occurred here during the American Civil War, known as the First and Second Battles of Sabine Pass.

Hurricanes

A powerful storm made landfall at Sabine Pass on October 12, 1886. It was the tenth hurricane of the season, now referred to as The Texas-Louisiana Hurricane of 1886, that all but wiped out Sabine Pass and Johnson Bayou in Cameron Parish. The storm, now considered to have been a category 3 (Saffir–Simpson scale), resulted in at least 196 deaths. Occurrence of the storm was recorded in the controversial "Diary of Louise" on October 20, 1886.[2]

Hurricane Rita made landfall on September 24, 2005 and on September 12–13, 2008, Hurricane Ike struck Sabine Pass and Galveston,[3] generating the highest surge[4] of 22 feet (6.7 meters) which is, according to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88),[5] the highest ever recorded at Sabine Pass.[6]

Current

Sabine Pass is a site for an LNG receiving terminal because it is located along one of a few deepwater ports along the Gulf Coast suitable for importing LNG. The region also has an existing pipeline infrastructure with access to South East Texas and U.S. markets.[7]

The former city of Sabine Pass, Texas, is now a neighborhood of Port Arthur.
