Why Are Locally Generated Tsunamis So Dangerous

Locally generated tsunami may reach a nearby shore in less than ten minutes due to their high speeds. There is not sufficient time for the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center or for local authorities to issue a warning. For people living near the coast, the shaking of the ground is the only warning that a tsunami may be imminent.
