    Tsunamis are rare events compared with typhoons and floods but can be extremely devastating. In the past 100 years, 58 tsunamis have claimed more than 260,000 lives; averaging more than 4600 deaths per occurrence. This rate is much higher than any other natural disaster including storms (such as tropical cyclones), floods and earthquakes. This chapter includes brief explanation of physical processes of tsunami generation, propagation and inundation, and disaster mitigation measures with the facts and lessons of the past events.
