“Imagine a 60-foot wall of water, seemingly coming out of nowhere and destroying your home, killing friends and family members, and destroying your city”

This is what happens when a tsunami slams the coast.

Tsunami: the Killer Wave from National Geographic explains what causes these giant waves, documents the damage done by past tsunamis, and demonstrates how coastal towns can best prepare themselves for future tsunamis.

There is some footage of actual tsunamis on quite impressive, though grainy, black-and-white film shot in Hawaii in the late 1940s. This documentary is an interesting and educational look at one of nature’s lesser-known but most deadly freak occurrences. Pull up a beach chair and get ready to watch as the ocean takes over the land.

Dare to confront one of the sea’s most deadly monsters - the tsunami.
Its freak waves can race undetected across an ocean at 600 miles per hour, crashing ashore like a bomb.... and pushing massive walls of water that swallow cities whole.

In the past century, tsunamis (literally ‘harbour waves’) have taken the lives of 50,000 people - with almost no warning. And scientists tell us that another destructive tsunami - perhaps Pacific-wide - could strike at any time.

Now, National Geographic lets you encounter these killers up close through heart-stopping footage and survivors’ stories. You’ll witness unimaginable devastation in Hawaii, California, and Japan.... travel the Pacific Rim to track the underwater earthquakes that spawn tsunamis.... and watch as residents of this seismically volatile region brace for the next Killer Wave.
