TSUNAMI

What is Tsunami? Tsunami is a series of waves and a big harbor wave. Tsunami comes from the Japanese language meaning harbour ("tsu", 津) and wave ("nami", 波 or 浪). In Japanese tsunami is used for both the singular and plural, in English tsunamis is well-established as the plural. The term was created by fishermen.In my opinion, Tsunami is new knowledge for Thai people and we should to know, that we can divide the text to 3 parts.
First, Causes of Tsunami. We divide causes of Tsunami into two ways. By nature, it generated when water in a lake or the sea is rapidly displaced on a massive scale. Earthquakes, landslides, volcanic eruptions and large meteorite impacts. By human, Activity of human for example Atomic boom in ocean.
Second, Effect of Tsunami. When Tsunami happened, it has effects to anything. So we divide effects into three main groups. Those are effects to life for example died, hurt and maimed etc., affects to assets for example devoid a house, hotel, restaurant near the beach. and effects to economics for example none tourist around the beach.
Finally, Prevention when Tsunami happened. Tsunamis cannot be prevented or precisely predicted but there are some warning signs of an impending tsunami such as "in case of earthquake, go to high ground or inland", and build the structure to reduce the damage from tsunamis such as Tsunami wall at Tsu -shi, Japan.
In conclusion, Tsunami is new knowledge and should to know because Position of Thailand located between the Gulf of Thailand and Indian Ocean that it has a chance Tsunami will be happened. In your opinion, Should you know about tsunami?

It is the thing of a marine disaster. it is now since the Middle and Near East of a measure by tsunami is not inadequate, I want the United Nations to become a subject and to tackle in it.
