When folks first heard predictions of the 2022 mid-term Red Tsunami, a lot of them, particularly on the left, visualized the monster wave that wiped out the East Coast in the movie Deep Impact. Many of them laughed then, and now gloat that no such tsunami appeared. Some conservatives are pointing fingers and assigning blame.
That was a fictional meteor strike. A regular tsunami is different, and most of us were around for two big ones. The Boxing Day tsunami of 2004, the worst in recorded history, hit Thailand, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka hardest. Over the course of nearly a day, parts of the Arabian Peninsula, East and South Africa, Australia, and the west coast of the Americas experienced some waves and some inundation. The 2011 Tohoku tsunami devastated parts of Japan and, along with design flaws, resulted in the meltdown of a nuclear reactor.

Almost all open ocean tsunamis result from a sharp shock—in the above two cases, an undersea earthquake of magnitude 9 or above. Such a big earthquake is always followed by aftershocks. The first sign of the tsunami is a singular pull back of the water as the wave approaches the land. The wave’s height depends on the shelf’s configuration. In parts of Japan, the initial wave flowed almost smoothly up and over barriers and, pushed by succeeding waves, reached miles inland becoming deeper and more destructive over time. After the waves, came the rebuilding.
