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 a dark haired girl covering her face with her hands. She has angel wings spread out behind her back. This panel is located in Lord's Cove.
Commentaires : The text on the panel reads, "On November 18, 1929, an earthquake occurred under the Atlantic Ocean, about 250 km off of the coast.The quake triggered three waves, or tsunami, that struck these shores around 7:30 pm. Young Margret Rennie survived. Others were not as fortunate. Twenty eight lives were lost, including Margret's mother, Sarah (37), her sister, Rita (9), and her brothers, Patrick (7) and Bernard (1). It remains the worst earthquake disaster in Canadian history." "Father and the bigger boys were playing cards that evening, across the street at Maurice Harnett's house. She and Patrick were upstairs in bed. Mother and the other two were in the kitchen below. She remembers the tremors that shook the house. Recalls the darkness when the lamp went out... Later she would hear the tale. How Jim "Grandpa" Walsh broke the window with his bailer, and pulled her to safety before the second wave washed in. How she was "brought back to life" in a bath of warm water. How they found Baby Bernard, still strapped in his high chair. She was too young to remember, but Aunt Sis knew where to find them. There, not far from the pebble beach. Four wooden crosses arranged in a row. There, but for the grace of God...
