Tsunamis are a series of extremely large waves created by sudden disturbances in the ocean or on the ocean floor caused by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, or landslides in the ocean. The effects can be felt locally and very rapidly or hundreds or thousands of miles away. Extremely large waves moving through the water suddenly appear and then breach coastal areas at a speed of over 600 mph. Tsunamis create vast numbers of deaths and injuries and huge amounts of destruction to property. It may take weeks or months to clean up the debris and re-establish a place to live, if it is at all possible.
