Eyewitness to Japan’s Monster Earthquake to Address May 2011 Meeting

On March 11 of this year an 8.9-magnitude earthquake – the 5th-largest in the world in the last century – struck Japan.  Shortly after, a tsunami swept the northeast coast.  At first, hundreds were feared to have been killed.  The death count now stands at 28,000. Lynda Newcomb of Montreal (a relative of Hudson resident Thelma McCourt) was in Tokyo on a business trip when the earthquake struck. At the May meeting of the Hudson Historical Society she will share her experiences and observations of Japanese culture, sights, and sounds in the days preceding and the 36 hours following the earthquake. Earthquakes are not a major concern of residents of our area.  But is our nonchalance misplaced?  An earthquake occurs in the Western Quebec Seismic Zone every five days on average. This region experienced 16 tremblers over 4 on the Richter scale between 1980 and 2000.  In 1732 a 5.8 quake struck Montreal. On Monday May 9th come and hear Lynda Newcomb describe a natural disaster that most of us have not experienced, and hopefully never will. Date / Time: Monday, May 9, 2011 – 7:30 p.m. Place: St. James Church Hall, 642 Main Road, Hudson
