Most Terrifying Earthquakes To Shake Earth

Ret Isles, Alaska, April 2, 1965 (8.7 Richter)

The greatest damage caused by the earthquake was caused by a tsunami, which reportedly generated waves with elevations of more than 10 meters in the Shamia Islands. These waves sparked flooding on the Amhikta Island, resulting in millions of dollars in financial damage to homes. No reports of death or injury have been made by residents of these areas.
