Tsunamis

Book - 2005
Rate this:
Tsunamis appear as walls of water that sometimes rise as tall as the Empire State Building. They are rare but have the power to wipe out entire coastal villages. The earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and asteroids that cause ocean waters to shift can create waves that are extremely fast, strong, and unpredictable. Young readers receive an in-depth look at the various ways that tsunamis form and the destruction they're capable of causing. Perhaps most importantly, they discover how disaster planning can mean the difference between life and death for people in a tsunami's path. Book jacket.
