What exactly is a 'meteo-tsunami'?
A tsunami is a wave generated by seismic events-earthquakes-underwater. A meteo-tsunami is generated by weather, often big and sudden changes in air pressure. Meteo-tsunamis are less destructive than seismically generated tsunamis, though they can still be dangerous...and they don't just occur along ocean coasts. A 10 foot meteo-tsunami killed 7 people in Chicago on June 26, 1954.
