Dana goes on …

“The waves that daily hit the shore of the Bonzai Pipeline, on Hawaii’s northwest coast are often 12 feet high. But a wave, no matter how high, will break upon the beach and do no damage, except perhaps to the surfer who doesn’t catch it right.”  
“A tsunami, on the other hand, is caused by forces deep inside the Earth. A tsunami may be shorter than an ordinary wave, but it will do tremendous damage, because of the enormous power behind it.”
