    Tsunami in Alaska would be very cold water. It looks like it will not be big.

    The biggest wave ever recorded was in Alaska!

    The 1958 Lituya Bay megatsunami occurred on July 9, when a large, 8.3 magnitude earthquake on the Fairweather Fault triggered a landslide that caused 30 million cubic metres of rock and ice to fall into the narrow inlet of Lituya Bay, Alaska.[3] The sudden displacement of water resulted in a wave runup of 524 metres (1,720 feet) in height.[3] This is the highest recorded megatsunami and the largest known in modern times. The event forced a re-evaluation of large wave events, and recognition of impact and landslide events as a previously unknown cause of very large waves.

    Pretty crazy to think about what happened back then!
