The Wake: the Deadly Legacy of a Newfoundland Tsunami
On November 18, 1929, a tsunami struck Newfoundland's Burin Peninsula. Waves up to three storeys high hit the coast at 100 km/hour, flooding dozens of communities and washing entire houses out to sea. The disaster killed 28, left hundreds more homeless or destitute, and forever changed the lives of the inhabitants along the Burin Peninsula.
Linden MacIntyre will be in conversation with Ken Davis.
