Tsunamis

A Tsunami is a big ocean wave product by earthquakes, volcanos, and meteorite. A Tsunami can travel up to 450-600mph and can be miles long. Multiple waves will come and hit land. The first wave is normally the most destructive. The time after each wave is 5-90 minutes and then the waves get smaller and smaller. Sometimes tsunamis can be unpredictable because you don't know when they come but sometimes they are able to be known to come and hit a coast of a country because of an earthquake around the world
