Natural Disaster

Tsunami

Tsunami definition

A Tsunami is when there is a big wave that comes crashing into land and they can be up to 100 metres tall.

Tsunami Causes

 The cause of a Tsunami is when big pieces of the Earth’s pieces called ‘Tectonic Plates’ suddenly shift. When these ‘Tectonic Plates’ shift, they usually grind together. But sometimes, the plates get stuck. As they get stuck, the pressure builds. When the pressure builds, they suddenly crash into a new position! As the Ocean floor moves, it creates massive holes, that is when the water fills up these holes. After that, the water begins to move quickly making huge waves. That is how Tsunamis are made. A Tsunami can swallow up islands in minutes. 

Tsunami Effects

 They can damage buildings and properties. Causes pollution by making everything like rubbish,dirt,building parts and etc to go everywhere which cause pollution.

The challenging thing I found about this was trying to find the key points in our text.
The thing I found that I enjoyed was being about to work in a group and communicate with others in my class.

Here are some question for you:
Have you ever experienced a Tsunami?
Have you ever experience any other natural disasters?
Have you had family members who have ever experienced a natural disaster?

Here is a photo of a actual Tsunami:
