Causes and Effects

By: Luke

Every tsunami starts out in the deep ocean abyss. Most tsunamis form from an earthquake. Some are caused from a landslide or a volcanic eruption under the ocean surface. When this occurs a point of tension is created. The point of tension pushes up a bump on the surface and gravity pushes it down. These bumps are the tsunamis. While a tsunami is speeding toward the shore it is mostly underwater. So, if you feel a tsunami in the sea you will feel just a little ripple in the water. The mass destruction of a tsunami is devastating, they pick up boats and slam them into the shore. Most people would drown if caught in the wave. Tsunamis travel at speeds of 600mph, so if someone got caught in it not only would he (or she) would be slammed into the side of a building. And just when you think that the danger is over it pulls everything back to the ocean. If you liked that go to the next page it's sure to blow you away.
