Aftershocks Continue

Dot's Diary, Tuesday, April 2, 1946:

Estimate 300 Perish in Hawaiian Town; California Hit - HILO WRECKED; RESCUE SQUADS DIG FOR VICTIMS: This tragic city was a horrible shambles today as rescue squads dug bodies of 37 victims of today's smashing tidal wave from the slimy wreckage and rubble.

PACIFIC TIDAL WAVE; 70 DIE - 5,000 HOMELESS; LOSS RUNS INTO THE MILLIONS: The latest total of dead in the wake of the tidal wave in the Hawaiian islands is 70. Forty-eight bodies have been recovered on the island of Hawaii and hundreds are reported missing there.
