Summary
Volcanic eruptions, landslides, and underwater earthquakes can all cause tsunamis, deadly waves that can go unnoticed in the open water until the waves get close to shore. In this book that discusses the causes of tsunamis, you'll also learn how tsunamis are formed, what type of damage they do, and where some of the worst tsunamis in history occurred
