Combining huge mass and terrifying velocity, these giant waves can cross entire oceans, unleashing their destructive energy on coasts thousands of miles from their source, and in exceptional situations reach dizzying heights of over 1700 feet. Using archive footage, computer animation, and expert interviews, Mega Disaster: Tsunami exposes the science behind some of the most destructive events of modern times, ramping up to a mega disaster – a combination of complex CGI and real locations, portraying a scenario that scientists say could happen sometime in our future.
