How soon can a tsunami appear after a tsunami?
There are tsunamis and there are tsunami trains. A tsunami is generated by an underwater earthquake. A new tsunami has to wait for a new earthquake. It is not uncommon for any earthquake to be followed by one or more aftershocks within a matter of hours or days, so a new tsunami can result similarly. Since earthquake behavior is notoriously unpredictable, so is tsunami generation. A single tsunami results in a series of waves with periods ranging from minutes to hours. This is called the tsunami "wave train". There is more information in the related links.
