Tsunami striking Venice. Montage image of the surging waters of a tsunami about to envelop the city of Venice, Italy. St Mark's Basilica (domed building) and the associated bell tower (St Mark's Campanile, green spire) are part of the skyline. Venice is a city of islands and canals in a lagoon in what is now north-eastern Italy. It was a major maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and today is a popular tourist destination. Tsunamis are natural disasters where underwater earthquakes, landslides, or volcanic eruptions cause the sea to surge onto the land with great destructive power.
