All About Tsunamis
What Is A Tsunami?
A tsunami is a series of waves that gradually get taller and bigger and unfortunately forms into a tsunami. Tsunami waves can travel up to 600 miles per hour, which is the speed of a jet plane. Normal water waves usually travel up 2 to 60 miles per hour. Due to the speed of the tsunami waves it leaves a terrible path of destruction.
Devastation To Humans
