Tsunami (Pronounced Soo-Na-Mi)

Tsunami

Tsunami

? A TSUNAMI is a large ocean wave usually caused by an underwater disturbance such as an earthquake, landslide, meteorite or a volcanic eruption.
? These Ocean Waves are collectively known as a ‘Wave Train’.
? The word Tsunami is a Japanese word which means a ‘Harbour Wave’.
? With normal waves, water flows in circles, but with a Tsunami, water flows straight.
? The waves travel super fast at a great speed
(about 500 miles an hour) almost as fast as a jet plane and can reach a height of over 100 feet!
? About 80% of the Tsunamis happen within the Pacific Ocean’s ‘Ring of Fire’
(A dangerous area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where earthquakes & volcanic eruptions are known to occur).

What does it look like when a Tsunami is about to hit the shore?
As the Tsunami approaches the shore, the water will be pulled back towards the sea and away from the shore. Observing this is a good indication to alert people that there is possibly a Tsunami is on the way!
