History of earthquakes in Charleston......
In 1886 the most powerful earthquake to hit the east coast of the United States was right here in Charleston. The "Great Earthquake" leveled much of Charleston which had just started to recover from the tremendous destruction Charleston endured from the Civil War 20 plus years earlier. 60 Charlestonians were killed when the earthquake hit at 9:50pm. Most of them were killed running into the streets and being hit by falling bricks from the homes and chimney's. The Charleston earthquake was felt as far away as Boston, Chicago and Cuba. On the richter scale this quake was estimated at 7.3. The quake also caused many fires that only added to the devastation. Morris Israel was the second great grandfather of Triest Agency's owner, Larry Freudenberg and Mr. Israel was one of Charleston's wealthiest businessmen of the time. Morris Israel gave of himself through financial contributions to aid in the reconstruction effort.
