Most of the causalities occur around the 250 miles radius of the tsunami centre and usually within 30 minutes. The series of tsunami waves is also known as wave train and the time between any two waves can range between a few minutes and couple of hours.

The first fact in these interesting tsunami facts is about the 2004 tsunami in Indian Ocean.


This is one of the most interesting tsunami facts about the tsunami due to meteorite showers. In this interesting list of tsunami facts, this fact is about the unbelievable speed of tsunami waves.
At the coastal areas if people feel earthquake they should consider it a warning for potential tsunami waves and get moved towards some higher region. But according to some scientists, almost 3.5 billion years ago there was a huge meteorite strike which created a tsunami so big that it wiped out all the life from the earth. The tsunami waves can travel with a speed of 600 miles per hour which is equivalent to the speed of a jet plane. There is another theory about tsunami caused by an asteroid 4800 years ago in Indian Ocean which raised huge 180 meters high tsunami waves.


The 5th or 6th waves are the strongest ones having the capability of demolition over a wide area.
The first person who related tsunami to earthquake was a Greek historian Thucydides who mentioned this discovery in his book ‘History of the Peloponnesian War’.
