Sorry... took a while to get back here. I didn't realize I had to ask a question. How's this....

What was the location for the first-ever deployment of the newly formed American Red Cross and why?

I am going to take a wild stab and using your location as a hint will say the Johnstown, PA floods.

Very good!

The Santa Clara valley of California IS a fault controlled structure. Its called a GRABEN. (German for ditch)
The Greater San Andreas system has produced numerous fractures throughout the whole of the Bay Area, and many structures are fault driven....The Santa Clara Valley is a block that dropped while other areas raised or remained relatively more stable. Many rivers and bays in the Central Coast of California have pirated faults as well. Also there is considerable beach terracing south of San Francisco that is more fault driven than by wave action.

Good stab .

The first deployment of the newly created American Red Cross was to Johnstown, PA following the devastating flood of May 31, 1889. Clara Barton herself came to lead the effort. She stayed for ~ 3 to 6 months. The house she occupied still stands today and is soon to be home to the headquarters of the Keystone Chapter of the American Red Cross.

I would go with Alaska, but using Saintmarks logic I would say the county is in Texas!! Also from my trips to El Paso, I do remember part of I-20 from Midland - Odessa till the merge at I-10 West being very empty so without knowing the name of the county it might be somewhere there????
