I know the geography wouldn't indicate a link, but a quake as big as 8.9 has to have some long range, deep strata effects. The whole picture, as I
see it, is like a glass full of ice cubes. When one moves, others move, because they support each other. The amount of stress created by an 8.9 is
enormous. The forces at work on the crust right now must be tremendous, plates colliding, heat building up, rock melting, increased magma seeking the
area of least pressure. It's like if you squeeze one end of a juice box, the juice comes out the top right? It seeks the easiest escape. Right now
a whole lot of new magma is looking for an opening, and I'm not sure where it mind end up.
I don't think half of the volcano's lip would collapse, it's something like a quarter I think. Saw a pic once and have never found it since,
showed a HUGE chunk hanging off the side of the crater. If it collapsed it could fall straight down, and the water there is quite deep, so the
resulting wave would be several hundred feet high.
I'm frustrated that I can't find any of the original links, but my favorites list is longggg, I've been at it for half an hour and only a third of
the way through my primary list. Gonna be long night if I don't find it in primary list, I'll have to go to my written records, and even then, the
damn sites probably been taken down already. Frustrating..
