Recurring Tsunami dreams

I dream about tsunamis so often that I feel uneasy even looking for a picture to describe it.
My heart thumps faster and faster as I lay there knowing I have no where else to run but to cling onto the most solid object I see. Then my subconscious looks for that high wall to budge. 

The last one I had was last night. The setting was simple, I was at an island..with no escaping route. It was calm one moment and it wasn't scary until I saw the formation of waves as high as a 30-storey building.

Just to give you a rough idea, I found a site that shows the formation (less scary compared to the real graphics you find in Google images):

 First it's calm and you won't realize the formation of these gigantic waves. 
Notice the house on the far right for illustration purpose.

 Then the waves start forming and hits ashore. By the time, it is just too late to dodge or run. 
Notice the house is still there.

 and then it's gone.

I read on a couple of sites when I first dreamt about tsunamis. One said that means overwhelming emotional stress. I guess it could be apply to everyone since we are all generally stressed out -__-"

So then I found an article with a slightly longer explanation than the first, 

"To see a tsunami in your dream means that you are being overwhelmed by some repressed feeling or unconscious material that is rising up to the surface. You are experiencing some unhappiness and emotional instability in a waking situation."~dreammoods.com

Then it kind of makes sense to me. But in my recurring dreams, I am always at a different location, never once at the same place. I see it form and waves of water just hits the roofs, wash away people and furniture but I remember that one time I was killed in the dream.

Are there a lot of people dreaming about Tsunamis? do you think it's something we can relate to with the world is now? 

I read from a blog entry that in this website, the author talks about how the common response from an individual being put into a situation like this would run away from the tsunami. But she too suggested that we should try embracing it instead of running --as a way of dealing with the emotions that are repressed.

I then related back to my dream, I can still remember the waves vividly but not the people inside my dreams. It's always waves pouring round after round while I just cling onto a huge pole or something. There's got to be an explanation for it. On my own opinion, whether we are facing or dodging the waves in our sleep sort of represents how strong we are subconsciously. Imagine, it tries to kill you but you die die also don't let go. STRONG LA. EMOTIONALLY.

Okay, side tracked a bit. I just thought I'd share this hoping someone could explain it to me. God?

It bothers me especially when I wake up, it's neither a good or bad feeling. But on a lighter note, I told Shaz how it's affecting me and he said, "I think you just need to pee. When people dream about water, most of the time it's because they're full of..water and they need to release" and on and on he went.
