When a tsunami hits a coastline, it can cause great destruction and loss of _____________________________. Many tsunamis can be _____________________________ before they hit _____________________________, and the loss of life could be minimized with the use of modern _____________________________.
The word tsunami comes from the _____________________________ word meaning "harbor wave."

If you are on the beach and you see the water recede quickly and unexpectedly from the beach, run toward _____________________________ ground or inland -- there may be a _____________________________ coming. Also, if you are on the coast and there is an earthquake, there may be a tsunami, so run toward higher ground or inland. Many beaches have tsunami warning sirens -- do not ignore them.
You can make a tiny _____________________________ of a tsunami by dropping a _____________________________ into a bowl of water, causing ripples to propagate (travel) outwards from the site of _____________________________. Another way is to slightly jolt the bowl of water and watch it slosh over the rim on one side.
