On the Fourth of July, there has been only one tropical storm or hurricane that has made landfall anywhere between Matagorda Bay and the Texas-Louisiana border since 1871. Way back in 1874, a hurricane made landfall in the Matagorda Bay area. Since then, not a single tropical cyclone has made landfall along the upper Texas coast on Independence Day.
