Most tsunamis are caused by large earthquakes below or near the ocean floor, but can also be caused by landslides, volcanic activity, certain types of weather, and near-earth objects.

In the deep ocean, tsunami waves are often barely noticeable, but can move as fast as a jet plane, over mph. As they enter shallow water near land, they slow down and grow in height, and currents intensify. The major (M w = ) Chilean earthquake of 27 February generated a trans-oceanic tsunami that was observed throughout the Pacific Ocean.

Waves associated with this event had features similar to those of the tsunami generated in the same region by the Great (M w = ) Chilean Earthquake.

Both tsunamis were clearly observed on the coast of British by: An assessment of the tsunami hazard in the United States shows that a tsunami can strike any U.S.

coast, but the hazard level varies. These hazard levels are based largely on the historical record (through ), geological evidence, and location relative to tsunami sources, all of which provide clues to what might happen in the future.
