Science fact of the day: Meteotsunamis are caused by storms

Meteotsunamis are large waves. Unlike tsunamis, they are not caused by seismic activity, but rather by air-pressure disturbances associated with fast-moving storms.

Meteotsunamis are amplified by coastal features like continental shelves or bays, and can reach heights of 6 ft. or more.
