Tsunamis

By, Olivia Mazzariello





Tsunamis, a series of surges of water

Rushing like runners at a race.

Reaching heights over 100 feet.

Rushing,

Swirling,

heights escalating,


Can be only 1 foot high,

or as tall as a mountain.

The winds swirl like a tornado.


caused by underground landslides,

or volcanic eruptions.

Terrifying,

Deepening,

Moving 500 miles an hour,

Tsunamis, i'm a killer wave.

Tsunamis

BY Olivia Mazzariello



Tsunamis are known as killer waves. A tsunami is a bunch of surges of water made by landslides in the ocean. They can reach heights up to 100 feet (30.5 meters). According to National Geographic, They race across the sea at up to 500 miles an hour. 80% of Tsunamis happen within the Pacific Ocean’s “Ring Of Fire”. The “Ring Of Fire” Makes earthquakes and volcanoes happen more often. Because of the research I have done, I have learned that Tsunamis are very dangerous world disasters. I got my information from National Geographic. Tsunamis are killer waves.
