Facts about tsunamis

Adalynn Stewart

Things that are cool and special to me!!!!!

I have always wondered why the US doesn’t feel anything when there is a tsunami somewhere else. During my research I found out that when it is in China or Russia we can’t feel it because we are too far away from it. If it was in the United States like California we still couldn’t feel it because we are far away from that state.
