If you are standing in a flooded road and a truck makes a 6 in wave, you get a little wetter.
If you are standing in a flooded road and a 6 in tsunami comes in, you would be now standing in a 1 ft RIVER watching cars float by.
Comparing water level before and after the initial wave, looks to me to be 6-10 in.
