Though tidal bores forced from tsunamis are not nearly as dangerous as the actual tsunami arrival on the coastline, they can have some farther reaching impacts inland.

The waves from the tidal bore can travel many miles inland, Newman said, and"could catch individuals upstream that are unsuspecting and cause damage to piers in the river.
