Tsunamis are caused by...

Tsunamis are caused by underwater earthquakes. The earthquakes cause vibrations in the water that send these humongous waves that cause mass destruction. An article from National geographic states "These awe-inspiring waves are typically caused by large, undersea earthquakes at tectonic plate boundaries. When the ocean floor at a plate boundary rises or falls suddenly it displaces the water above it and launches the rolling waves that will become a tsunami." (Nat. GEO., 2013)
