Tsunamis can cause terrible disasters. A tsunami is a group of moving waves that causes water to go up as high as 100 feet and will go onto land. Tsunamis often happen in the Pacific Ocean, specifically in the Ring of Fire. Tsunamis goes faster than a plane. Two other ways tsunamis can cause landslides or volcanic eruptions underwater. Tsunamis can go so fast it can go across the Pacific Ocean in one day.
Waves crashing to the shore
sending surges of water over 100 feet
People running to higher lands
scared of losing their house and family
Under the water the ocean floor is unsettled
The Pacific Ocean rages
knowing that in only one day it could be clear
Rumbling, roaring, and ripping
“Ring of Fire” in fear
given an 80% chance
for this disaster to race 500 miles per hour
