Raging Tsunami
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Warm breezes ruffled the palm leaves. The sun had risen to warm the sand. People from around the world relaxed on the beach. Some children splashed in the waves. Others built sandcastles on the shore. It was December 26, 2004. People were loving their summer vacation on the coast of the Indian Ocean. They were far away from the snowy winter weather in the USA.
 
2     Far out in the ocean floor, an earthquake occurred.
 
3     It disturbed the water. The huge quake stirred up the water. It became a large ocean wave! The water formed a tsunami. The angry water moved quickly away from the point of the quake. It moved faster and faster. It grew taller and taller. For two hours it rushed toward land.
