I read recently of tsunami that occurred in 1958 that occurred in lituya bay Alaska. This accrued when a 30.6 million cubic meter rock fell around 3000 feet into the water below generating an enormous wave that had a crest of 1720 ft above sea level. It removed all vegetation up to that point and is by far the largest wave ever recorded.this wave was so powerful maps of the area had to be altered due to the power of this titanic wave.
