The earthquake Edit
At 3:02 AM, June 16, 1872 a massive 9.7 earthquake decimated the eastern half of Quextin. The jolt lasted 13 minutes and caused liquefaction in Trivinnia and many places in the state of Golersta. Bye the time the quake ended, building collapses had been recorded in Pierra, over 250 miles away on the other side of Quextin. The earthquake itself only killed two people. Amazingly, the ground spared the people of Trivinnia and caused no aftershocks.
The tsunami Edit45 minutes after the earthquake, a 103 foot wave slammed into the coast. Amazingly, only 38 were killed, as many people on the coast saw the water recede and knew it was a tsunami. In Pierra, a 14 foot wall of water moved up the Pierra port, pushing large boats into the streets of downtown. In Ratunay, the wave leveled the town of Seemiki, killing 33.
