Five years later, another massive earthquake near Alaska's Aleutian Islands caused another tsunami. The 8.3 temblor hit on March 9, 1957, south of the Andreanof Islands, in the Aleutian chain. Houses, bridges and highways in Hawaii suffered major damage. In the accompanying photo, you can see the arrival of a big wave at Laie Point on the Island of Oahu.
