A wave higher than Nelson's Column and travelling faster than a jet aircraft will devastate the eastern seaboard of America and inundate much of southern Britain, say scientists who have analysed the effects of a future volcanic eruption in the Canary Islands.
there could possibly be a tsumnami somewhere in the US
FEBRUARY 21, 2006 -- "The likelihood of one happening tomorrow is extremely low. The likelihood of one happening in the next 400 years is extremely high, but we don't know if it'll be tomorrow or in 400 years," says Tom Matheson.
Matheson is the Warning Coordination Meteorologist at the National Weather Service Office in Wilmington. He's warning about the possibility of a tsunami. He says they are a fact of life near the ocean. Ever since the Indian Ocean tsunami in December of 2004, Matheson, along with emergency managers and others involved in disaster preparedness, have been developing plans to protect people in case a tsunami hit the Atlantic.
However, some scientists have warned the Atlantic Coast might be vulnerable to a tsunami caused by a landslide on a volcanic island in the Canary Islands off north Africa, called La Palma, whose geology is known to be unstable. A tsunami capable of reaching Boston and doing significant damage could only occur if the landslide was massive and if the rocks fell at a tremendous speed. Other scientists are doubtful that both conditions would occur simultaneously.
