Did you know that the last time a major tsunami hit the Caribbean was in 1946, after an 8.1-magnitude earthquake struck the Dominican Republic?
At Playa Rincón, the inundation was observed 700 metres (2,300 ft) inland, and waves reached heights up to 5 metres. Approximately 1,600 people died across the north-east coast of Hispaniola. Smaller tsunami waves were recorded in Puerto Rico, Bermuda and as far away as New Jersey.
