Tsunamis are one kind of waves has strong destructive power. This special name is from a Japanese word which means "wave." As the earthquakes take place in the sea floor, the force causes the violent wave of sea water. The wave is so strong that its flooding will destroy all the coastal area. Tsunamis not only cost huge damage on buildings and fields, but also cause lots of people's death. At present, we can only reduce the losses the tsunamis' causes through observing and predicting. We can't prevent the tsunamis taking place yet.
