How Tsunamis Are Created

Tsunamis are   generated when a large amount of water is displaced very quickly. These phenomena include earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and even meteorite impacts. However, the most common cause is an undersea earthquake. Tsunamis can also be created when the sea floor abruptly moves  at a fault in the earth’s crust.
