Tsunamis

~6000 answered questions
Parent Category: Natural Disasters
Tsunami are huge waves that form in large bodies of water (e.g., oceans, seas, large lakes), that are caused by abrupt vertical displacement of a huge column of water. The displacement can be caused by naturally occurring events such as earthquakes, landslides, volcano eruptions, etc., and even sometimes from underwater explosions. These can become natural disasters devastating to the people and properties along the shore lines where they ultimately appear, sometimes in waves as big as hundreds of feet high or higher.
