Messina Earthquake 1908 Earthquake Damage Messina Tsunami 1908 Tsunami Damage Italy sits along the boundary of the African continental plate. This plate pushes the seafloor beneath Europe 1 inch per year. This causes vertical rearrangement which can cause earthquakes The survivors of the earthquake had a hard time. Many lost members of their family, their homes, and everything they owned. Some survivors were moved to other parts of Italy while others immigrated to America. In 1909 a ship carrrying 850 survivors from Naples to NewYork collided with a passenger liner in dense fog, resulting in the death of 3 people. The passengers were rescued and eventually arrived in New York. Thank you for listening Italian translation
