A TSUNAMI is a series of water waves caused by the rapidly displace of a large volume of body of water, typically an ocean or known as large lake. in other words, Tsunami is a giant waves @ series of waves that created by undersea Earthquake, Volcanic Eruptions and other Underwater Explosions.
|Earthquake happened that may lead to Tsunami|
|Huge tsunami damage the city|
Based on my research, tsunamis waves don't get very high but they are move very fast that what can we imagine. In fact, the NATIONAL OCEANIC & ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION (NOAA) reports that tsunami waves can travel as fast as a jet plane.
In addition, when the tsunami gets closer to the land, the ocean dept decreases and the speed of tsunami wave slows down & the height of it increases dramatically.
Tsunamis are unpredictable. Once they makes a landfall, the waves can last from 5-15 minutes & DO NOT set a pattern.
