‘Get out of here!’ How huge Yellowstone earthquake sparked panic and devastation

The 7.3 magnitude quake caused massive damage, including 28 fatalities and a considerable £9million (£200,000,000 today) in repairs to highways and timbers.

Mildred Greene, a registered nurse from Montana, was camped with her husband Ramon and young son, Steve, in Rock Creek Campground that night.

Recalling the events, she told the US Forest Service in 2011: “We had been on vacation and this was our last week, and we set camp up just the day before the earthquake.

“And Stephen had been sick so he was in the same end as the tent with us, we had an 18-foot tent and when the earthquake started, it was just like the ground with ocean waves.
