Err, for some reason it didn't work for me. It just made a placemark "tsunami" but there was no tsunami in there :(

Double click it again, and make sure your terrain is turned on.

It is there, but when I clicked on the placemark, the resulting view was zoomed in way too close to be able to see the "tsunami". Or something else blocked my view since my screen was filled with a single color.

To see the tsunami, I had to tilt my view more upright (the default viewing angle is basically flat along the ground), then lift the viewpoint a little above the coastline, and then zoom in and find a better viewpoint for the "tsunami". It is really a cool anomaly in the height data. And nicely there are even some boats "caught" on the bottom of tsunami's front side.

Cool, I have to say.

If you want I can alter the zoom-in point of this ile, take a snapshot of the view, and that way, when you open the file, it flies in to the correct angle...
