On November 18, 1929, a tsunami struck Newfoundland’s Burin Peninsula. Giant waves, up to three stories high, hit the coast at a hundred kilometres per hour, flooding dozens of communities and washing entire houses out to sea. The most destructive earthquake-related event in Newfoundland’s history, the disaster killed twenty-eight people and left hundreds more homeless or destitute. It took days for the outside world to find out about the death and damage caused by the tsunami, which forever changed the lives of many inhabitants of the fishing outports along the Burin Peninsula.
