The tsunami that happened in Japan.

The tsunami that happened in Japan.

It happened in 2011. It had happened in Japan. The waves of the tsunami got over 18 feet high. The reason that I know that is because a city in Japan has a water wall and it is the biggest one ever made and still was it was 18 feet high and the waves of the tsunami got over it. A tsunami happens when there is an earthquake in the water.

How it happens.

It happens when an earthquake is in the ocean. It vibrates the water and it makes the waves go higher than normal. When the waves get closer to the shallow water the wave get larger and higher. Also the tsunamis waves got up to 50 feet high.
