What is a Tsunami
Tsunami are powerful ocean waves caused by a large earthquake or landslide near or under the ocean. They look more like a fast-moving tide than a wave and can persist for many hours. Tsunami can be as long as 60 miles (100 km), may travel at 500 mph (800 kph), and are likely to move 5 to 10 miles (8 to 6 km) inland.While the term tidal wave was once used interchangeably with tsunami, they are actually different as they are not caused by tides. They are also different from regular ocean waves, as they are not created by wind or storms.
Health Risks of Tsunami
The biggest health risk associated with tsunami is the loss of life. Their extremely power waves can drown you easily or even pull you out to see. You should always seek high ground if a tsunami warning is issued.Tsunami is also likely to contain sewage, mold, bacteria, viruses, or parasites that may contaminate buildings and homes after a tsunami-related flood. Standing water, in or outside a building, also become a breeding ground for mold and bacteria after a tsunami.You should avoid contact with standing flood water, especially if you have open wounds or other health issues. Due to the risk of contamination, some materials may not be salvageable during restoration.
Areas With the Greatest Risk of Tsunami
While tsunami are uncommon throughout most of the United States, they do still occur. Hawaii and Alaska are most prone to tsunami activity, due to underwater earthquake activity. Aside from that, any coastal area may experience a tsunami.
