Tsunamis in Maldives and is there a season for Tsunamis
There are of course no season for tsunamis, like everywhere else in the world.
Tsunamis are caused by strong earthquakes or land slides, which are both,very unfortunately, totally unpredictable.
Yes, the Maldives have already experienced a Tsunami after the giant 2004 Sumatra earthquake but the islands are not located on a fault or any other geological system at risk known to date.
It's always reassuring to know that Maldives have existed for hundreds of thousands of years and despite numerous earthquakes in the Indian Ocean ( particularly in India area and Indonesia ) as well as a very low height above the sea level, the islands are still standing.
Why Maldives were not destroyed by the 2004 Tsunami ?
Maldives atolls form a natural protection against tsunamis. Their slopes constitute very long submarine walls, which upon the arrival of a tsunami, dramatically reduces the force of the ocean wave.
In 2004, without this natural and vital protection, the Maldives would have probably been completely devastated.
