Many people have lost their lives over the years in tsunamis. Tsunami Disasters first explores what a tsunami is and the set of circumstances that occur in the natural world that create these giant waves. Some famous tsunami disasters are then explored in detail, explaining how, why and when some of the world's biggest and most famous tsunamis occurred. Tsunamis from recent memory, such as the Japanese tsunami in 2011 that devastated much of northeast Japan and caused a nuclear crisis when it destroyed the Fukushima power plant and the Boxing day earthquake in 2004, which killed thousands are covered in this book.
