Hi guys, sorry i'm not sure where this should go, but i think this should be appropriate forum for it.

I was wondering can aerodynamic design helps during a tsunami? In Bernoulli Principle we know that with cambered wing design is what helps airplane to fly so my question is, if this is applicable to buildings during tsunami, can pressure differences actually helps in lifting a building (say 1 or 2 story high) to the surface?
