Great Lakes Disasters


    The Great Lakes region has experienced a multitude of disasters and catastrophes. Some occur naturally and others are the result of the intervention of man. 

    Natural disasters include factual accounts of tornadoes that wreak havoc, rivers that crest and flood entire cities, storms that down aircraft and sink ships on the Great Lakes. 

    Other catastrophes included between these covers include true stories of disasters at man's hands: trains that collide, airplanes that crash, mines that collapse, natural gas explosions and deadly fires. 

    Many of the disasters were one-time occurrences but unfortunately man is doomed to relieve the death and destruction unless we learn from the past.
