Tsunamis are waves that are created by ground disturbances, such as earthquakes. They happen deep underwater in the ocean. The waves travel for great distances, under the deep water. As the approach a land mass, the water is more shallow, which forces the waves up and out of the water onto the beach with great force.

A tornado is a dark, funnel containing violent rotating air that develops below a heavy cloud mass and extends toward the earth. It is very dangerous and causes a lot of destruction.

An Earthquake is when two bordering tectonic plates in the Earth crusts slip next to each other. This releases large amounts of energy in the Earths surface as the Surface of the earth actually moves when the earthquake occurs.
