The word tsunami comes from Japanese words. If we break the word in half we see that "tsu" means harbor and "nami' means wave.
A tsunami is a series of sea waves spreading rapidly in all directions from the area on the sea bottom where a large earthquake, volcanic eruption, or coastal landslide has occurred.
As a tsunami reaches the coast, the first thing that may happen is a withdrawal of water. More shore may be exposed than even at the lowest tides. This major withdrawal of sea water should be taken as a warning of the tsunami wave that will follow. No one would want to try to outrun a fast-moving tenmeter wave that could smash the shore with great impact.
Another tsunamis begin with a rise of the sea level. As the tsunami wave of the maximum height appears as 2nd. or 3rd. wave, you should not think to be safe just after the first tsunami wave attack.
