    The Aleutian earthquake stands out among tsunamigenic events because it generated both very high run-up near the earthquake source region and a destructive trans-Pacific tsunami. We obtained new data on the distribution of its tsunami in the near field along south-facing coasts between Unimak Pass on the west and Sanak Island on the east by measuring the height of driftwood and beach.   June – ALASKA – There’s a nine percent chance a magnitude 9 or larger earthquake will strike the Aleutian Islands in the next 50 years. That is the prediction offered by scientists from the University of Hawaii at Mānoa -- made with the help of a newly designed computer model. Researchers say an earthquake. On April 1, , at GMT, an earthquake occurred in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. A Pacific-wide tsunami was triggered by the earthquake, which had a surface-wave magnitude of , an epicenter of ° N, ° W, and a focal depth of 25 km. Before the tsunami dissipated it took the lives of more than people and cause over $   Residents of the city of Adak on Alaska's Aleutian Islands evacuated and gathered on a nearby hill on Monday after a magnitude earthquake prompted a .
