I remember asking my third grade teacher,
“Ms. Johnson, why can’t we just dive through Tsunami waves like we do at the beach?”
“Matt. I’ve already answered that question for you 10 times today. Are you okay? Tsunamis do not crest like a wave you see at the beach.”
Maybe you aren’t as stupid as I was in third grade, or maybe you’d like to learn just a little bit more about how Tsunamis form and behave.
Check out this quick video of a guy observing a rather small Tsunami off the coast of Maui. While the wave isn’t impressive, you can see the individual facets of a Tsunami on a smaller and safer scale.
