    Megatsunamis have quite different features from other, more usual types of tsunamis are caused by underwater tectonic activity (movement of the earth's plates) and therefore occur along plate boundaries and as a result of earthquake and rise or fall in the sea floor, causing water to be ry tsunamis have shallow waves out at sea, and the water piles up to a wave.   A tsunami watch was also in effect for Washington, Oregon, and California. The warning was prompted after a large magnitude earthquake was detected in the Gulf of Alaska .
