Disasters are undoubtedly a wake-up call for the humanity.
A Tsunami is a series of ocean waves caused by earthquake, landslides, volcanos and meteoroids. This is the definition you'll probably find while searching for Tsunami but the hidden reasons behind its occurrence are still to be uncovered.
Given below are few facts and reasons for the occurrence of Tsunami.
Four factors that drive tsunami: Earthquake, Volcanic eruptions, Landslides, and meteoroids.
The most destructive Tsunamis are generated by massive undersea earthquakes that shake the seabed.
When a volcanic eruption takes place under the sea, it causes sudden displacement of sea water like a massive shock and Tsunami waves are hence formed.
Landslides occur when a strong earthquake shakes the sea floor thus forming Tsunami waves.
There is a huge danger of tsunami being formed by the fall of meteorites and asteroids in the ocean.
Tsunami can travel at a speed of 805 kilometers an hour, almost as fast as a jet plane.
The first wave of Tsunami is not the strongest, successive waves get bigger and stronger.
