  1. In the evening when the sun is shining, I felt a earthquake while I was swimming in the ocean, when a huge tsunami. I was terrified as a lions prey about to be pounced on. There are people screaming at the top of their lungs. The whole town is flooded. I think to myself this will cost thousands of dollars. People are rushing off the beach. Cars are getting washed away from the road.

  2. I was just swimming when I saw a big tsunami coming right at me. it look as if it was a group of war less dinosaur’s. I was trying to get out of the water as quickly as possible, but it was to late it had already hit me. I’m going higher and higher until I reach the top I have come to the point we’re I’m going to go flying down. I’m worried how hurt I’m going to get. I wish this hadn’t have happened in the first place. As I’m coming down I’m wondering if this is just a dream but it’s not.

  3. The huge tsunami is about to hit a small town with its powerful wave destroying anything in its path. People are terrified cars raceing to get out of town, buildings about to be crushed like a bug and the great blue water coming in like a cheetah after its prey. Smoke from the cars rushing to get out of town, the great big sea making its way through. The water hiting buildings and wonderful cars and people running like a lion for there lifes. Peoples hearts are jumping out of there bodies and hoping that they won’t get killed and feeling horrified that something big has hit them.

  4. In the dark morning, when there was no sight of the bright sun, I felt a massive earthquake strike at me, while trying to keep balance. 26
    I was feeling the most terrified as I could ever be. Then, I soon heard the sound of twisting and fluctuating waves. Water was rushing down through the wide and open streets and alleyways, like a huge pack of stegosauruses weren’t in a great mood. The taste of the horrible saltwater and debris brushed in my mouth like I swallowed a mouthful of sand. I had no freedom and spare time to rush. It was a terrible experience.

  5. Giant Tsunami crashing into a city
    A extremly powerful wave over water that is gushing into your mouth is all you can taste. Saltwater fills your nose as the massive and scary tsunami crashes into the city. All you can see is an unbelivible wave, so big its the biggest wave in history smashes into the city. Everyone would have to agree that you would be terrified and shocked as you run for your life. All you can hear is the roar of a gigantic wave over the soft sound of screaming and yelling at the same time.

  6. Gigantic tsunami crashing into city
    The terrifying ocean wave is getting far too close to us, the horrifying earthquakes, shaking and controlling cars while the cars are crushing. The humongous wave is crushing over top of us. The speedy wave makes its way through homes. The look of the cars, they are all facing a different direction because they are being moved by the horrifying ocean wave because the tsunami wave is making the city shake. The extremely, powerful, strong wave over the top is crashing its way through my throat is the only thing I can taste. The rapid wave was really, really salty.

  7. The huge scary wave!

    A powerful wave rushes through the raging busy city, cars begin to speed up and crashes start to happen. The huge wave is hitting the small town, and is damaging buildings and cars that have been destroyed since the wave hit the tiny town. Cars are rushing to get out of that town so they can escape from the massive wave behind them. All the water was going into windows that were open and everyone could taste the disgusting salt water, people gave a BIG scream and yelled for help, but no one stoped they just ran or drove faster and faster.

  9. Terrifying Tsunami
    A huge tsunami is towering over tall buildings like human towering over a table. The tsunami is 50 meters tall, it is as tall as a skyscraper. I am scared as the huge terrifying tsunami towers over me like the empires state building. The frothy white foam of the tsunami is like a cloud raining down. The noise is terrifying. Everyone is screaming like an opera yelling their lungs out. The force of the tsunami is like a bomb going off. The chaos and madness is a disaster as the tsunami hits the city spinning the whole city into madness.

  10. The terrifying TSUNAMI
    The gigantic tsunami hit the beach like a plane smashing into a building. I glazed at the giant thing, terrified for my life. One person screams, “Get to the tsunami tower!” I start running up the stairs hoping that I could survive. I could see from the top of the tower, the power of the Tsunami. It was that strong it was making the tower lean. We felt the strength of the wav e as it roared over the top of the city’s buildings, destroying everything in its path like a tornado ripping up huge trees.

  11. Giant Tsunami
    As the day was coming to an end and everyone was going home, I felt the city rumble down by the beach. I can see the beach from my apartment. Things start smashing and I lose my balance, car sirens deafen me and the city goes black. I look out my window and see brutal, massive forces of waves coming from the ocean destroying everything in the way. The huge tsunami rapidly comes towards me. It roars thunderously as it hits my apartment. The whole building shakes, I trip over and hit my head hard enough to knock me out…

  12. THE HUMONGOUS TSUNAMI!
    I see a huge wave in the distant coming closer about to swallow the whole city and everyone is screaming in terror. I am trying to swim to dry land but the humongous tsunami is pushing me away. I look under the water and I see this terryfing huge shark swimming towards me, I’m trying to swim as fast as I can but the tsunami is just pushing the man-eating shark closer and closer. The tsunami throw me on dry land, I don’t know what to do I don’t see anyone. The fish are flapping around on the dry land.

    The dangerous tsunami finding its way through the city, the cars are turning in every direction. The extremely dangerous tsunami is a horrifying as a great white shark swimming after you. The powerful wave crashes through the city unknown. All you can taste is the saltwater filling your mouth. Hearing the sound of screaming from people nearby and the sound of the wave gushing overtop of people in the homes. The massive wave breaks through homes, picking up anything in its way. The terrifying wave tears down homes leaving people homeless, leaving people as orphans, killing and injuring people.

As I look down all I can see is cars floating on top of water and people running for their lives in fear, the tsunami is like a cheetah running after its prey massacring anything in its way. when I go into the elevator feel the building starting to tumble down.
