After the great Alaskan earthquake on Good Friday 1964, our Pacific coast experienced a tsunami with some devastation and loss of life in Oregon. Washington, my state just to the north of Oregon, has experienced them historically, but not recently as our recorded history here is only about 300 years old and the dating of the native Americans history is basically speculation; all we can go by is carbon dating excavations when we find them. Our scientists just found the skeleton of a whole mastodon on the shoreline of the Columbia River between these two states. It was probably killed and buried by the massive flood that occurred some 10,000 years ago when a glacial dam broke at the end of the last Ice Age in what is now Montana, two states to the east. This flood wasn't a tsunami, but the flood wall was estimated to be two hundred feet high in some areas which scoured out new canyons and scab-lands in its passing. Here endeth the lesson.
