Now check this out, a recent update at EMSC has 3 big quakes at New Britian

1946 Aleutian Islands earthquake From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search 1946 Aleutian Islands earthquake Residents run from an approaching tsunami in Hilo, Hawai'i Date 1 April 1946 12:28 (1946-04-01T12:28)(UTC) Magnitude 7.8 Ms Depth 25 kilometers (16 mi) Epicenter location 52°48′N 163°30′W / 52.8°N 163.5°W / 52.8; -163.5 Countries or regions affected USA, Hawaii, Alaska Tsunami Yes Casualties 165 The 1946 Aleutian Islands earthquake was an earthquake near the Aleutian Islands on April 1, 1946. It was followed by a Pacific-wide tsunami. The earthquake was a magnitude 7.8, with its epicenter at 52.8°N, 163.5°W, and focal depth of 25 km. It resulted in 165 casualties (159 people on Hawaii and six in Alaska) and over $26 million in damages. Among others, it obliterated the Scotch Cap Lighthouse on Unimak Island, Alaska and killed all five lighthouse keepers. The wave reached Kauai 4.5 hours after the quake, and Hilo 4.9 hours later. This prompted the creation of the Seismic Sea Wave Warning System, which later became the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in 1949. The tsunami was unusually powerful for the size of the earthquake; it was the last time any earthquake below magnitude 9.0 caused tsunami fatalities far from the earthquake area. Scientists think the tsunami may have been caused by an earthquake triggering an underwater landslide.
