The Great Lisbon Earthquake of 1755 devastated not only Lisbon but much of southwestern Europe and adjoining North Africa with effects felt as far away as Finland and the coasts of the Antilles Islands in the Caribbean Sea. To compound the situation in Lisbon the city was successively struck by fire and a devastating tsunami that came roaring up the Tagus River. The quake also gave rise to the science of seismology.

Doggerland was a land bridge between Great Britain and Europe connecting Great Britain with Denmark and Holland across the southern part of what is now known as the North Sea. There was a series of vast land slides off the coast of Norway collectively known as the Storegga Slides that raised a great tsunami that separated Great Britain from Europe in the blink of an eye on the day Great Britain became an island.

These are all the earthquakes in known history that definitively registered 9.0 magnitude or higher. Some earthquakes, like the Cascadia earthquake that occurred along the Pacific Northwest Coast of the United States in 1700, have been estimated to be in a range that could have been 9.0 magnitude. The range for that earthquake though is 8.7 to 9.2. These are the earthquakes that were definitely measured at 9.0 magnitude or higher.
