Tsunami, the word is Japanese. It means “harbor wave”. A tsunami can be very unpredictable, but can be very dangerous and deadly. A tsunami is very swift, and has an awesome fury. It is caused by a force of nature out to sea. A tsunami has waves that have been known to have waves as 50 feet high. The water is suddenly displaced from the shallow end and surged in to the tsunami wave; therefore you are able to see the ocean floor. Then the wave hits with such force that it will destroy anything in its path, including people.
