Love your comments on the Tsunami but you need to understand that the Tsunami is not a tidal wave. A tidal wave is caused by the same force (moon related) that causes all waves. A Tsunami is caused by an eruption, usually on the ocean floor, that forces water to develop a huge surging of a water mass. If a little fluid can raise your 3000-pound car at your local mechanic shop five feet into the air, the Tsunami carries millions times more power.


Thanks for that clarification. The whole world, including me, has been on an extreme learning curve about earthquakes, tectonic plates, tidal waves and Tsunami surges. Your clarification helps a great deal.
