Tsunami: The Newfoundland Tidal Wave Disaster by Maura Hanrahan Tsunami: The Newfoundland Tidal Wave Disaster
by Maura Hanrahan

--> (Not currently available for purchase)
Book Description
Twenty-seven dead. Staggering property losses. Triggered by an offshore earthquake on the Grand Banks, a tsunami unleashed its fury on the coastline of the Burin Peninsula, Newfoundland, killing 27 people and destroying homes and fishing premises in 50 outports. Here is the dramatic, incredible story of The South Coast Disaster of 1929, the superhuman efforts of Nurse Dorothy Cherry to save the sick and dying, and Magistrate Malcolm Hollett’s tireless campaign to rebuild shattered lives and devastated communities.
