Crescent City's Dark Disaster

At this hour 49 years ago a series of tsunami waves was rolling into Crescent City, CA, in what has become known as the Crescent City Tsunami of 1964. It was generated by the M9.2 Good Friday Earthquake of 1964. I am the proud owner of a pristine copy of the now out-of-print book above that was published on the 20-year anniversary in 1984.
