Researchers at University of Hawaii at Manoa have determined that there’s a small, but potential, chance that Hawaii would suffer from a direct hit from a mega tsunami in the next 50 years.
Hawaii News Now reported Friday that a study about the possibility of a tsunami generated from a magnitude-9.0 earthquake near the Aleutian Islands was published this week in the Journal of Geophysical Research Solid Earth.
Researchers gave the event a 9 percent chance of happening.

They have legit credentials, I linked the access point to the full pdf above.
This is NOT a good place to focus your emotional energy. Real life is happening just outside. And I've never been to Hawaii so if it disapeers I doubt that I'd notice much.
