Herriman Saturday

January 8 1909 -- American disaster aid is filling freighters bound for Italy, responding to the horrific Messina earthquake. The disaster is estimated to have killed somewhere between 75,000 and 200,000 people. The earthquake, and a resultant tsunami, levelled most of the bustling port city of Messina. Naturally Californians are particularly empathetic to the plight of the survivors.
