Moreover, Tsunamis are often referred to high waves of water caused by changes in the flow and surge of the ocean. On the other hand, Tsunamis can be caused by a few different factors, which are an earthquake, a large-scale undersea landslide, a submarine volcanic eruption (Cause of Tsunami, n.d.)....

    Multiple Wave Damage * Tsunamis arrive with multiple waves, with the stronger ones typically arriving after the first one hits. Given the shape of the underwater shore, significant amounts of water get pushed upward and higher at the coast, allowing the tidal water to flow higher than it normally would. Anything that is loose on the ground gets swept up and bounced around like cork. Because water is so heavy as a mass, it can move cars, wood, metal, cement, and debris. All of this material...
