About the tsunamis

Tsunamis are a series of enormous waves created by an underwater disturbance such as an earthquake, landslide, volcanic eruption, or meteorite. A tsunami can move hundreds of miles per hour in the open ocean and smash into land with waves as high as 100 feet or more. All tsunamis are potentially dangerous. Drowning is the most common cause of death associated with a tsunami. Other hazards include flooding, contamination of drinking water, and fires from gas lines or ruptured tanks.
