Synopsis

Tsunami Disasters by John Hawkins

Tsunami disasters are terrible occurrences and a source of fear and fascination for many people They are often devastating and can kill thousands of people at a time. 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. There are also details of nine other tsunamis from the past. The factors that contributed to each of these disasters are examined in detail and make for compelling reading. Part of a series of 6 books, Catastrophe! uses historical reports, eyewitness accounts and expert opinions to explore incredible natural and man-made disasters. Suitable for KS2-3 these are excellent reference books for teachers and students.
