The wave which comes from the earthquake is about 30cm. If the wave comes in more flat water it grows and becomes a tsunami.
2004 Asia Tsunami

5. If you see that the tide begins to roll out extremely fast, then you can assume that there could be a Tsunami
How to survive a Tsunami at the beach
How to survive a Tsunami while on a boat.
1. Don't return to the port.
2. Communicate with the port, and ask what you should do.
3. If you are in the port and you are on a
