It's a beautiful spring morning on New Jersey's Long Beach Island, a sliver of land favoured by sun worshipers for its miles of white sandy beaches. The onslaught of summer tourists hasn't yet begun, but thousands of LBI residents are beginning their daily routines, oblivious to the horror that will soon rise from the sea. High overhead, aboard a 747 bound for the U.S. capital, a terrorist's plot has gone awry. The plane nosedives into the Atlantic and a nuclear device detonates, creating a vast undersea landslide. Within minutes a tsunami is born, and a series of formidable waves begins to move toward the Jersey shore. By the time the tsunami makes landfall, the most destructive of its waves will reach a height of nearly thirty feet, with enough power to devastate every structure in its path. At the point of impact sits Long Beach Island, with only one bridge to the mainland and less than three hours to evacuate.
