Description : This is one of seven panels that were erected to commemerate the tidal wave that struck the Burin Peninsula in 1929. These panels are located at various communities along the Burin Peninsula which were affected by the tidal waves. This panel depicts two legs moving through the water with moonlight shining overhead. This is signifigant because the first tidal wave hit on moonlight night. This panel is located in Taylor's Cove.
Commentaires : The text on the pabel reads,"On the evening of November 18, 1929, an earthquake occurred under the Atlantic Ocean, about 250 km off this coast. The quake triggered three massive waves, or tsunami, that struck these shores around 7:30p.m. As the sea rushed in, Miss Fewer, the telegraph operator here, in St. Lawrence, remained at her post long enough to transmit a warning to the people of Burin: "Oh my, everything is going here.." Miss Fewer survived the tsunami. Others were not as fortunate 28 lives were lost. It remains the worst earthquake disaster in Canadian history." "Brave girl operator tries to warn Burin. The headline made her blush. Yesterday someone called her a hero. She blushed then too. Mrs. Fudge, the postmistress called her a damn fool. "What on earth were you thinking?" she'd asked. "You very nearly drowned" To be honest, she hadn't thought of anything. There simply wasn't time. It was as if her finger tapped the message before the thought formed in her mind. (---.../-- -.--) and once she'd started (. ...- . .-. -.-- - .... ..-.-.--/ .. ...) she couldn't stop (--.---..-.--./ ... . .-..) until it was too late. She didn't plan it. She didn't set out to be a hero. There simply wasn't time for anything else.
