Chapter XXVIII

            There was no warning given to the seacoasts of the planet as a fifty-foot wall of water rushed upon them from the south. Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro slept as the waters, with an ominous silent majesty, broke upon the wharves. On the other side of the world, Shanghai, Osaka, Manila, Hiroshima, Bangkok, Calcutta and Canton were bustling through another humid day when the tidal wave struck. In a matter of minutes, cities as far north as Alexandria, Baltimore, and Washington were all but obliterated by the erasing waters. Soon even Montreal, New York, Albany, Boston, Hamburg, and Leningrad were rising out of the depths after a crushing wall of tons of water had come and left, smashing into the Northern Polar regions sending up shrieks of ice and snow. In a shockingly short time, there had been more lives lost than in the cataclysms on Venus, and in the Hydrogen War of the 80s. Nature again proved her superiority to mere Man by using the means which Man had so long appreciated: violence.
