On November 4, 1952, at 16:52 GMT, a strong earthquake off the coast of Kamchatka Peninsula, in the far east of Russia, generated a great destructive Pacific-wide tsunami. The tsunami waves struck the Kamchatka Peninsula, the Kuril Islands and other areas of Russia’s Far East, and caused considerable damage and loss of life. The tsunami caused severe damage along the Pacific coastal area of the Kamchatka Peninsula, and was also very damaging in the Hawaiian Islands. There was also some damage in Peru and Chile. Although the tsunami was widely observed and recorded in Japan, there was no loss of life or any significant damage there.
The destructive tsunami was triggered by an earthquake, which had a surface-wave magnitude of 8.2 and a focal depth of 30 km. The quake’s epicenter was at 52.8° N, 159.5° E.
Some years later a Moment Magnitude (Mm) of 9.0 was assigned to this quake.
The highest and most destructive waves from this tsunami were observed and experienced in the Kamchatka Peninsula, the Kuril Islands and other areas of Russia’s Far East. There was considerable damage and loss of life in these areas. The 2nd and 3rd waves were the highest.
Kamchatka
From Kamchatka Peninsula to Kronotsky Peninsula: Tsunami wave heights ranged from zero to 5 meters.
From Kronotsky Peninsula to Cape Shipursky: Tsunami wave heights ranged from 4-13 meters with the highest wave of 13 meters observed at Olga Bay. The 3rd wave was the highest. Travel time of the first tsunami wave to Olga Bay was approximately 42 minutes after the earthquake. There was considerable damage.
From Cape Shipursky to Cape Povorotny: The waves ranged from 1 to 10 meters and considerable loss of life and damage were reported. At Avachinskaia Bay the tsunami height was 1.2 meters and tsunami travel time was about 30 minutes.
From Cape Povorotny to Cape Lopatkka: The tsunami waves ranged from 5 to 15 meters. At Khodutka Bay a cutter was thrown 500 meters back from shore
At West coast – Ozernoe: Tsunami run up was 5 meters
Japan
The tsunami was widely observed and recorded in Japan but there was no loss of life or damage.
Hawaiian Islands
The island of Hawaii experienced run up to 6.1 meters.
