1 cubic metre of water weighs over 1 tonne (that almost translates to 1 cubic yard equals a ton). The length of a tsunami can be hundreds of yards, so yes, it is like being hit by a mountain moving at the speed of a train.

Also, unlike a conventional wave, the energy is horizontal rather than circular.
