The earthquake's magnitude of 9.5 was recorded by the U.S. Geological

greatest damage came from the tsunamis created by the underwater earthquake.
The tsunamis had far reaching effects. People living as far away as the
Philippines and Hawaii were killed by the waves. The cost of the cleanup was
estimated to be between $400 and $800 million, $3 to $6 billion in today's
economy.
