Tsunami

“Tsunami” is a Japanese word in which “tsu” means harbor and “nami” means wave. Thus the word means “harbor wave”. Tsunami is a series of waves that can travel at speeds averaging 450 (and up to 600) miles per hour in the open ocean. Most of tsunamis are caused by earthquake even though landslides, volcanic eruptions, and even meteorites can also generate a tsunami. From an initial tsunami generating source area, waves travel outward in all directions much like the ripples caused by throwing a rock into a pond.
