The 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean was the deadliest wave in recorded history, started by an earthquake registering 9.0 in strength. The energy released was as intense as 23,000 atomic bombs. The largest tsunami recorded was nearly 18 stories above sea level, and hit Siberia in the early 1700s.
The biggest wave ever recorded was a 1,720 foot wave that occurred in Lituya Bay, Alaska in 1958. The wave was a result of an 8.4 magnitude earthquake. Fortunately it occurred in an unpopulated area and only two fishermen were killed.
