I can not see if a wave was generated or not, but I did find that they have issued a tsunami warning for Alaska.


NOAA


At 3:14 AM Pacific Standard Time on November 15, an earthquake with preliminary magnitude 8.1 occurred near the Kuril Islands, Russia. This earthquake may have generated a tsunami. If a tsunami has been generated, the waves will first reach Shemya, Alaska at 4:24 AM AKST on November 15. Estimated tsunami arrival times and maps along with safety rules and other information can be found on the WCATWC web site.


So, I guess now we just wait and see.

good find by the way.

16 inches? Lucky buggers. That's barely any different to any other wave! could have had the kids splashing around in it.

I would imagine the US coast might see some wave activity, but by the time it hits the US coast, the wave would have dissipated over a wider area, losing energy. If 16 inches is akll they got in Japan, I doubt the US is in for a shock.
