Tsunamis and earthquakes! (That happened in Japan.)
Transcript of Tsunamis and earthquakes! (That happened in Japan.)
A small tsunami triggered by a quake has hit Japan's eastern coast but no damage is reported
The earthquake struck at about 02:10 on Saturday.
These waves can reach heights of over 100 feet.
About 80 percent of tsunamis happen within the Pacific Ocean.
The first wave of a tsunami is usually not the strongest, successive waves get bigger and stronger.
Tsunamis can travel at speeds of about 500 miles or 805 kilometers an hour, almost as fast as a jet plane. Which is fast!
How it affects countries and lives.
HOPE YOU LEARNED LOTS AND
common in Japan

IF YOU ARE AT A BEACH AND THE TIDE
GOES OUT MAY MEEN A TSUNAMI
IS COMING! AHH
Message: to veiwer
Tsunamis are very dangerous
so be careful if you feel a tremor.
A tsunami is a great wave caused by and earthquake out at sea. One particular tsunami occurred of the east coast of Japan after a extremely powerful earthquake. It starts by to tectonic plates rubbing together and they send fast ripples, when the ripples get to the shallow water it slows the back half of the ripples down and it turns into a triangular wave that crashes down onto land

Tsunamis are huge waves of water that are usually caused by earthquakes or volcanic eruptions.
As a tsunami approaches the shore, the tide may go out more than usual,if it is shallow enough the water may be pulled back hundred’s of metres. If you are in the area, observing this is a good indication that a tsunami is on the way.
Regions in tsunami danger zones often have warning systems in place to give people as much time to evacuate as possible.
When tsunamis hit shallow water (often near the coast) they slow down but increase in height.
An earthquake in the Indian Ocean off Indonesia in December 2004 caused a tsunami that killed over 200000 people in 14 countries. More earthquake facts.
Shelters have been set up to help the homeless people.Two years ago today, a devastating earthquake struck Japan’s east coast, followed minutes later by a massive tsunami with 100 foot waves. About 100 people died in the earthquake itself although almost 20,000 people lost their lives in the tsunami. 138,000 buildings were destroyed. This was the most expensive disaster in human history. Japanese response to the earthquake and tsunami was rapid, effective and life-saving. Some 465,000 people were evacuated after the disaster.
Fabulous facts #2
Infomation: and our brains
In March 2011, the Tohoku earthquake off the eastern coast of Japan caused a tsunami that was a major factor in the death of over 15000 people.
The tsunami waves created by the Tohoku earthquake reached heights of over 40 metres (131 feet) in some areas, wiping out coastal towns and causing a number of nuclear accidents.
The Japanese word tsunami literally means ‘harbor wave’.
Tsunamis are sometimes referred to as tidal waves but this term has fallen out of favour because tsunamis are not related to tides.
