I checked with the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. It
turns out that although there is no catalogue of Russian
tsunamis in Soviet times, the Japanese kept and still
keep a very detailed catalogue listing all of the
tsunamis that hit Japan each year. The Japanese kept
very exact and detailed records, even in 1947, of the
tsunamis, which hit their coasts. For example, they
found a record of a small tsunami that hit Japan on
November 4, 1947. It was associated with an
earthquake off the west coast of Hokkaido.

However, the Japanese catalogue lists nothing for either
February 12, 1947 or the months on either side of it. In
the japanese and other tsunamis catalogues, there
exist “orphan” tsunamis, whose source is unknown. If
you are looking for meteorite impact tsunamis, these
are the ones to be investigated ion some manner.
