Okay don't laugh. But I am from the tornado belt and when we have a tornado, the wind picks up everything from people to grass... Never having lived by the ocean long enough to forge a memory of it, i am curious what happens during a hurricane or tsunami. I know about the physical destruction and what the wind damage looks like. What I don't know is what about the wildlife in the water at the time of a 40 to 90 ft wave hits the shore. Do sharks, selfish, sea turtles and other animals come on shore as well? In the 2004 tsunami and the one that hit Japan recently it looks like the wildlife would be push onto land as well. So what happens when the tsunami wave hits inland. Can someone be at risk of both being bitten by a shark while drowning in the middle of downtown or where ever the wave leads them? I mean with a tornado everything and anything can and will happen. Nothing is impossible. So I was curious if reports of wildlife forced inland was a problem.
IniymatEvolution, I would imagine everything in the tsunami wave including any marine life that happens to be in it at the time will be displaced as well. Once on land most of these animals will probably die immediately due to injuries, changes in the pH of the water due to the trash and chemicals in it, changes in water temperature, and when the water starts to recede into the ocean leaving some animal out of the water. Along with total destruction there will be a devastating loss of marine life. I do not believe a shark will survive long enough under these conditions to bite any one.
Animals have an innate sense that alerts them to danger. I remember reading that many animals survived the 2004 tsunami. There has been a lot of research on how animals sense soundwaves. If humans were more in tune, we could also feel or 'sense' these infrasounds. And some do report of feeling a strange sensation when storms or devestating events take place, even far away. We feel them, but may not necessarily know how to describe what it is.
Ah... I see. It didn't occur to me that there would indeed be early warning signs that the marine life could sense first or the water temp. and ph differences. Thanks.
