tsunami
Tsunami

There is no recorded tsunami history for CNMI but according to reports, a tsunami passed by the CNMI in 1964 from the Chile Earthquake event that hit Tokyo, Japan and killed thousands of people in Japan.  According to USGS inundation model for tsunami, the maximum wave heights that we are going to get from a tsunami is 6 feet only.  The continental shelf, Marianas Trench with no sedimentation, the fringing reeflines are the factors as to the how high the wave will be.
