The Japanese coined the word "tsunami" to describe the terror waves caused by an earthquake. They have experienced the tsunami many times during their long history.
In recent history, the word was borrowed to describe the terror waves that killed 300,000 people following the Sumatra earthquake in 2004. Six years later, the Japanese had the misfortune to experience the tsunami again. Quite sad!
