Tsunamis

Tsunamis are giant waves from the sea and are very destructive. A tsunami is caused by earthquakes or meteors. Tsunamis are giant ocean waves caused by a large earthquake, they are also known as seismic sea waves.

The name “Tsunami” is Japanese and means “Harbor wave”, there also are tidal waves which are similar to tsunamis. Tsunami is Japanese but it’s now used in English. The term “Tsunami” is from Japan and means harbor (tsu) wave (nami).

Tsunamis occur by meteors or earthquakes. They are caused by sudden movement from the ocean, basically underwater earthquakes. Tsunamis happen mostly in the Pacific Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea and the Caribbean.

People measure tsunamis with a recorder. The recorder transmits with buoys, the buoys relay measurements of wave height to the satellites.

The maximum height of a tsunami is 1720 feet (543 meters) which probably was the highest tsunami ever. The normal height of a tsunami is 30 meters but 543 meters (1720 feet) is a whole lot higher.

Tsunamis are giant waves from the sea and are caused by underwater earthquakes.

Information about Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is a type of lung disease and also the longest letter in English. It is caused by inhaling very fine ash and sand dust, so be careful if you are near a volcano.

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is a very rare disease, why because volcanoes are hard to find so Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is rare.

Now that’s all I can think for Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis the longest word in English.

… When did it arrive? (100 WC)

KABOOM!! A mysterious ship crashed on the surface at 11 : 00pm at night. In the morning I saw smoke in the air, I asked dad what it was, he didn’t know so we went outside to look and it was A UFO.

I was thinking if my dad knew what to do with it, he actually didn’t know. Right now in the backyard an ALIEN popped out of the Unidentified Flying Object (UFO).

For a second I thought the alien took control of my dads brain, but I only had one question stuck in my brain, seriously.

When did it arrive?

100 Word Challenge

“Wow have a look at that sculpture!” I said.

“Son it’s a gun for gods sake… With a thing twisted around it.” Dad said embarrassingly.

I picked up something that looked like the gun we were looking at. Dad said, “Damn son where’d ya find that!”

Dad tried to make me laugh. “Dad I literally found it on the ground!” I say kind of annoyed.

“Sorry son, I tried to make you laugh but I failed.”

I saw a thing on the stick that looked like a trigger. I tried to press it and BOOM!!! The gun shot and a BOONANA APPEARED.
