Flash Facts: Seismic Sea Waves

"Tidal waves (more accurately called seismic sea waves, since they are waves set up by submarine earthquakes) sometimes travel across the ocean with speeds exceeding 400 miles an hour."

Illustration: "A railroad bridge in the Hawaiian islands that felt the full force of a violent seismic sea wave."
