Tsunamis natural disaster
Tsunamis can cause terrible disasters. According to National Geographics, a tsunamis is a series of ocean waves that sends surges of water, sometimes reaching hits of over 100 feet on land. these walls of water can cause widespread destruction when they crash ashore. In addition, at up to 500 miles per hour tsunamis can race across the sea as fast as a jet airplane. Additionally, tsunamis, about 80 percent, occur within the Pacific Ocean’s “Ring Of Fire” (National Geographics 2015). Tsunami's destructive force may be compounded as successive waves reach shore because a tsunami is made of a set of waves called a wave train. The best defense against any tsunami is early warning that allows people to seek higher ground National Geographic 2015). In conclusion, tsunamis can cause terrible disasters.
The water as tall as three giraffes on top of
each other getting up to 100 feet on land
tsunamis also called underwater landslides
tsunamis are caused by GINORMOUS
tectonic plates rubbing together forming
a under sea earthquake
waves run across the sea at up to 500
miles per hour composed of a series of waves
called a wave train
wave train keeps going going going
until they all hit landtsunamis
