|Tsunami- tsu·na·mi A very large ocean wave caused by an underwater earthquake or volcanic eruption.|
The underwater earthquake causing the December 2004 tsunami was equal to 1,000,000 nuclear bombs exploding at the same time.
Atsunami at sea can travel at over 500 mph.
The average height of a tsnunami at sea is 16 inches high.
The largest wave ever recorded was in Lituya Bay, Alaska. The wave was 1,720 feet.
Since 1948 75% of all tsunami warnings have been false alarms.
Most deaths caused by a tsunami are because of drowning.
