What exactly causes Tsunami ?When will it go back? How much harm can it do?Such questions and many more are arising in everyones mind…
Tsunami is a Japanese word meaning a harbour wave.Tsunamis can arise by an underwater earthquake, a volcanic eruption, a sub-marine rockslide, or, more rarely, by an asteroid or meteorite crashing into the water from space. When the epicentre of a large earthquake is located offshore, the seabed sometimes suffers displacement. The plates of the ocean surface are shifted and it displaces water above it resulting the huge waves moving outwards one after another.The eartquake to cause a Tsunami should be about the magnitude of 7 on ritcher scale.
The latest Tsunami which took place in Japan on 11th march was a disaster.The location of Japan is such where earthquakes can often take place ie. the Pacific ring of fire .On this black friday an eartquake which measured 9 on ritcher scale hit Japan and within seconds the hge wave started engulfing whatever came in its way.
The nuclear power plants are now near to blast as the coolants have been finished.It is awsome these plants which were the main source of income of Japan are now the deadliest danger for them.God forbid when and where is this nightmare going to end. May the life of Japanese people be saved .We all are with you .
