Tsunamis are large waves of water usually triggered by an earthquake, explosion, or other event displacing a large amount of water. Out in the open ocean, tsunamis are typically harmless and unnoticeable to the naked eye. When they start, tsunami waves are small and wide; the height of the waves can be as small as a foot, and they can be hundreds of miles long and move very quickly, so they can pass practically unnoticed until they get to shallow water closer to land. But as the distance between the bottom of the ocean floor and the water gets smaller, these short, wide, fast waves compress into extremely high, powerful waves that wash onto land. Depending on the amount of energy involved, they can reach more than feet in height.

Tsunami and Earthquake in Indonesia Kill Nearly 400, Officials Say
Sulawesi earthquake and tsunami - Wikipedia
Scientists are still trying to determine the exact cause. The earthquake that occurred on Friday morning was not a thrust earthquake, the kind that is responsible for most tsunamis, where tectonic plates move vertically up and down and displace water. Instead it was caused by what is known as a strike-slip fault, where tectonic plates move horizontally. According to Phil Cummins, a professor of natural hazards at the Australian National University, these earthquakes usually lead only to very weak tsunamis. This submarine landslide could have occurred either in Palu bay, close to the shore, or further out to sea. Usually tsunamis are caused by earthquakes hundreds of miles from shore, and the shaking is rarely felt on land. There have also been suggestions that buoys out to sea that detect earthquakes and tsunamis as part of the early warning system had not been serviced for six years and were faulty.

The year was witness to one of the greatest tragedies of humankind—the Great Tsunami that wiped out civilization in many parts of South East Asia. Thousands were rendered homeless, and many lost their loved ones. These quotes are glaring reminders of the horrors of the tsunami. When you read these quotes, spend a moment of silence for the victims of the tsunami. Subash, South Indian resident.
