How do they form? 

Tsunamis are formed as a result of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, or landslides that occur under the sea. When these events occur under the water, huge amounts of energy are released as a result of quick upward bottom movement.

The tsunami triggered by the magnitude 9.0 earthquake off the coast of Japan on March 11, 2011 reportedly struck a coastal city in Japan at just over 23 meters (77 feet) high. In many places along Japan's coasts the waves were up to 4 stories high at 10 meters (33 feet). The tsunami wave speed was estimated to be 500mph or 800 kilometers per hour, which crossed the Pacific Ocean reaching the coastlines from Alaska to Chile.

In comparison, the 2010 Chile earthquake generated tsunami waves measuring 1.8-9 meters along the northeastern Honshu coastline in Japan.

The 2011 Christchurch earthquake produced a series of 3.5 m (11 ft) high tsunami waves.

The highest tsunami apparently is the 1958 Lituya Bay mega-tsunami with a record height of 524 m (1742 ft). OMG !

How Powerful is it ?

The Effect of Japan Tsunami

The wake of the Japanese tsunami travelled 8,000miles through the Pacific and Southern Oceans until it battered a 260ft tall wall of ice at the southern tip of Earth - causing giant icebergs to break off Antarctica.
