Tsunamis with runups over one meter (3.28 feet) are particularly dangerous to people and property. Yet, smaller tsunamis can also be dangerous. Strong currents can injure and drown swimmers and damage and destroy boats and infrastructure in harbors.
So, what time of year do tsunamis occur?
A tsunamis happens when there is a big wind and it is high tide. They occur most often in summertime. Safty tip- Do not be on low ground when a Tsunamis happen . There is a Tsunamis in calfornia that killed more then 2,000,000 people.
This begs the question “When do tsunamis occur?”
When the ocean floor at a plate boundary rises or falls suddenly, it displaces the water above it and launches the rolling waves that will become a tsunami. Most tsunamis–about 80 percent –happen within the Pacific Ocean’s “Ring of Fire,” a geologically active area where tectonic shifts make volcanoes and earthquakes common.
How can you predict when a tsunami is coming?
Tsunami travel time is dependent on seafloor depth. We know seafloor depth for the entire earth. Therefore, once we know when and where an earthquake as occurred, we can determine when a tsunami will arrive at any given coastline.
The next thing we wanted the answer to was, where is a tsunami most likely to happen?
Speaking to the BBC Politics Wales programme, Dr Giri Shankar from Public Health Wales said: “We appear to be a week or two behind what London, most parts of England, and Scotland are seeing. “We need to make that work to our advantage because the higher the cover with booster vaccination the better.”.
And tsunami of 2004, and 2010 Port-au-Prince earthquake — feature amongst the most deadly in human history. But equally, some of the most fatal occurred in the very distant past. Making the top three was the earthquake in Antakya (Turkey) in the year 115.
Yet another inquiry we ran across in our research was “What should do when there is a tsunami?”.
One answer is, during a tsunami. Do not go near the shore to watch a tsunami hit. If you can see it, you are too close to escape. Should a tsunami occur and you cannot get to higher ground, stay inside where you are protected from the water. It’s best to be on the landward side of the house, away from windows. Often tsunamis occur in multiple waves that can.
