Tsunami Waves - The Basics

What is a tsunami?  Why do tsunami waves grow taller the closer they get to shore?  What makes them so powerful that they can destroy nearly everything in their path?

NOAA PMEL - the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration / Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory - produced this video to give us a basic understanding of tsunamis and how they behave.
