I remember reading somewhere that the risk for the east coast, of the US, is not that great for a mega tsunami. They claimed that because of the shape
of the continental shelf the energy would dissipate greatly before it reached the coast. It seems that continental shelf on the east coast is much
broader and slopes gently so the wave would probably collapse in on istelf before it reached the coastal areas. Of course, there would still be a
great volume of water inundating the coast but it might not be a 100 meter monster. I'll see if I kind find some more info on this theory.
