Yes it is
Floods are the number one problem. They come inland with such force that they carry debris that does just as much damage as the wave and rising water.
Yes, a Tsunami is a cataclysmic natural disaster. also, Catastrophic - those suffering People -
Tsunamis are geological
because tsunamis take alot more lives than other natural disasters do
A tsunami is a natural occurrence often cause by an earthquake under the ocean or a volcanic explosion. When one comes ashore where people live it is usually a disaster as it …destroys buildings and kills most people in it's path, so it is termed a natural disaster, one not caused by people.
Natural disasters can take on one of two defining characteristics in terms of their lifespan: they can either be rapid-onset hazards , or slow-onset hazards. The former refer…s to disasters like earthquakes and landslides, where the triggering action of the potential disaster happens relatively quickly and without much physical warning. The latter refers to disasters that develop over long periods of time, like seasonal droughts or lengthy cold spells. Alternatively, disasters can be defined according to the extent of their impacts. Catastrophic disasters classify hazards in terms of their effect on human life over a large spatial scale. Events like massive volcanic eruptions (like the eruption of Krakatoa, Indonesia, in 1883 - the effects of which were seen and felt as far afield as Sweden, continental-wide droughts (such as those that have ravaged the African continent) or huge tsunamis (like the 2004 Southeast Asian tsunami). Conversely, other disasters may not have huge impacts on people, but may change the face of a landscape permanently - avalanches or landslides may occur in uninhabited areas, where the only physical result is a sudden change in the physical environment.
It's actually a giant wave that causes flooding
It destroys our land and kills millions of lifes
Earthquakes are the most common x3
yes. physical means you can see the action happening
Floods are almost always the number one disaster. They also cause a lot of damage to buildings.
Tsunamis cause people to die and for animals and for houses to be swept away.what causes a tsunamis is a earthquake or when a valcano erupts.
I know you can get this anywhere, but tsunamis occur when a violent eruption in the crust ( aka. an earthquake ) moves water in a huge burst of energy and moves the water. The… wind can also play a role in the tsunami and how fast it travels. When the tsunamis usually occur in deep ocean, it is rare or even impossible to happen right at land and still cause a large tsunami, but when moving more towards shore, the wave length decreases and the height increases and soon becomes this big, towering wall of water.
A tsunami is described as a natural disaster because it is anaturally ocurring event that can cause massive death anddestruction.
Tsunamis happen in coastal areas. The tsunami is a huge wavegenerated by an under-sea earthquake. The quake pushes a piece ofthe earth upwards, which triggers a deep wave to f…orm. As the wavenears the coast, the front of the wave slows down as the waterreaches land. However - the back of that makes the wave 'rear up'to perhaps fifty feet or more in height.
They are called natural disasters because they are a result ofnatural activity such as rain storms or undersea earthquakes, whichare unpredictable and cannot be caused by man.…
