A tsunami wave can often seem deceptively harmless in its size and power, but the damage it causes can be earth shattering. Scientists have difficulty predicting when and where these killer waves will strike next. In this timely new book, young readers will learn about the factors that contribute to the making of a tsunami, where in the world they strike, tsunami warning systems, and what we can do to stay safe. Topics include
• the science of waves
• destruction of the shoreline
• secondary hazards such as flooding, contaminated drinking water, and the spread of dangerous diseases
• cleanup and the rebuilding of communities, including costs and help from the international community
• forecasting a tsunami
• survivor stories
• aid agencies such as the Red Cross and FEMA
