Tsunamis By: Sarah and Mikhaila How does a Tsunami occur?
<ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>These tremors and shakes, what is caused by earthquakes, underneath the sea. Then a series of large waves that spread thousands of kilometres over several hours, moving through the ocean away from the earthquake’s epicentre or the middle rapture of the plate. This creates the beginning of a Tsunami and journey of Tsunami is on its way moving in force of waves to an open large wave. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
<ul><li>A person may know if a Tsunami is heading forward or coming. When the fish flops with force and the boats are standard in different parts of the sea, with a thunder and a deafening sounds like a roar noise, the Tsunami moves up like a moving mountain of the ocean sea. That comes crushing into shore or coastal land, with an unimaginable force. That is when a Tsunami has hit land because of the disaster it has caused. The death’s human, the damages to culture and land. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The shifting of the ocean floor underneath the sea causes a giant wave called a Tsunami. This is not a normal wave of the sea, it is more powerful energy wave that stretches out in a band of water from the sea floor, coming towards the surface of the island. </li></ul>
<ul><li>These huge rocks or tectonic plates (flat rock) move very slowly and rub together. These rocks meet an fault underneath the earth’s plates an earthquake occur then the movement forces waves of energy that comes together a form of a wave moving or heading towards the earth’s surface. </li></ul>
