Synopsis

It was Good Friday, 1964 in Crescent City, CA, population 3,000. Thousands of miles away, an earthquake registering 8.4 on the Richter scale was tearing through Alaska. And no one knew the quake would set off a series of tidal waves that would stretch across the Pacific & right to their back doors. Weaving together historical research with the compelling accounts of survivors, Powers re-creates the events of the fateful night when 30 city blocks were ravaged, 289 homes & bus. were damaged or destroyed, & 11 people lost their lives. This is also the story of the remarkable courage displayed by those who came together before, during, & after the tsunami to save the lives of friends & strangers -- often at the risk or even loss of their own. Photos.
