On the night of July 9, 1958, an earthquake along the Fairweather Fault in
the Alaska Panhandle loosened about 40 million cubic yards (30.6 million
cubic meters) of rock high above the northeastern shore of Lituya Bay. This
mass of rock plunged from an altitude of approximately 3000 feet (914
meters) down into the waters of Gilbert Inlet. The impact
force of the rock-fall generated a local tsunami that crashed against the
southwest shoreline of Gilbert Inlet.

The wave hit with such power that it swept completely over the spur of land
that separates Gilbert Inlet from the main body of Lituya Bay. The wave then
continued down the entire length of Lituya Bay, over La Chaussee Spit and
into the Gulf of Alaska. The force of the wave removed all trees and
vegetation from elevations as high as 1720 feet (524 meters) above sea
level. Millions of trees were uprooted and swept away by the wave. This is
the highest wave that has ever been known.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
