This is huge!!! A twenty foot wave could hit a section of Japan. I hope that it does not materialize into a real tsunami. Remember the wave in 2004? It killed 250,000 people. I do not remember getting a figure on how big the wave was for that tsunami. I wonder if this has anything to do with the 20 year moon maximum

It would have been considered a 9.8 a couple years ago. They changed it a few years back so that the numbers wear one point down. I do not know what to google if any one has any info on this please post it.
