Tidal Wave!!

While the 'tsunami' may be the correct snob term, they'll always remain 'tidal waves' to me. In 1929 after a 7.2 earthquake, 27 people died as an 'earth-shock' and tidal wave nailed Newfoundland. $23,000 (Newfoundland dollars) worth of salt cod was also lost - which of course was the real tragedy - as it was most certainly the cause of the stock market meltdown later that same year.

And this from the T-Bag.
