The Lituya Bay Megatsunami

On July 9, 1958, an earthquake struck on Lituya Bay, Alaska. This produced a massive slide from one of the mountains that surround the inlets of the bay. This slide displaced tons of water and formed the biggest wave ever recorded. According to this paper, the wave must have been 270 m (885 ft) tall immediately after impact, and 160 m (525 ft) tall during the first 20 seconds after impact. After crashing into the slope directly in front (and running up more than 1720 ft high into it, judging by the trimline of erased trees), the wave propagated along the bay and into the sea, greatly diminishing in height.

That day, a few witnesses survived a diminished (but still massive) 100 feet wave, closer to the entrance of the bay. While none of them could see the giant wave during the first 20 seconds after the “splash”, one of the witnesses (Bill Swanson ) said he saw the Lituya glacier (normally situated exactly north from the point of the slide) shaking in the air, despite a full mountain usually covering it from point from where he was standing. “People shake their heads when I tell them I saw it that night. I can’t help it if they don’t believe me. I know the glacier is hidden by the point when you're in Anchorage Cove, but I know what I saw that night, too. The glacier had risen in the air and moved forward so it was in sight. It must have risen several hundred feet.” The movement of water that lifted the glacier is only up to our imagination. Bill Swanson passed away from a heart attack upon returning to Lituya Bay on 1962.
