Mini Tsunami hits UK


www.dailymail.c o.uk

Huge underwater landslide causes 'hair-raising' tsunami... off the coast of CORNWALL
Tide shifted up to 164ft in a matter of minutes
Shift in air pressure created static that left women's hair standing on end

I have searched but could not see if this had been posted. Looks interesting.

Ok - this is only a 2 foot wave, but for the UK it is news :0)

Quite a sight to view and a shame I missed it.

Currently they say it was probably a 'landslip' off the coast? Seems a bit odd to me - and wonder if there is more going on 'out at sea' than is being let on.

I am half expecting videos to appear on YouTube showing people surfing as they do on the Severn Bore.

this is really interesting for me. I live right on the cornish coast and can see Dartmoor from my house, unfortunately I was away on business on Monday so missed it all. I would have seen the mini tsunami as i have a view over the water and am almost at sea level. My wife was in the garden and heard the rumble from Dartmoor but wrote it off as thunder

hmmm, ive lived here for 30 years and not heard of an earthquake on Dartmoor... and definitely not a mini tsunami

It does indeed... very similar...

Yet that is tidal - gravity related and this is a landslip (which you would think would be huge!)... unless it is tidal/gravity related but they don't know it yet.

Those mini-tsunamis wash up on the coast of Florida over and over every day


Seriously, this is a slow news day.

I doubt it's tidal, otherwise it would happen on spring tides, so a couple of times a year. Also the tides are pritty regular at the moment - no spring tides right now - gotta be a landslide or something similar I reckon

gutted I missed it!

hey above poster, where I am we get a bit of surf, not a lot but a bit - regularly a couple of feet so yeah in that sense not a biggie - but the tide going out by 50 ft in seconds and peoples hair standing on end isnt regular... well not for us cornish types anyhow

Sorry, but there is larger waves in the bath tub.

Does it qualify for a tsunami? even it is is 'mini'

Undersea landslips are pretty common. I guess it qualifies for a tsunami. mini...

Must be a long shallow incline to the beach in that part of the world.

Yeah, I saw it.

It wasn't very dramatic to be fair, and only came up about a foot, but interesting nevertheless.

Most dramatic was the causeway over to St Michaels Mount, but even that wasn't really much, apart from the static...

You can still walk across to St Michael Mount, this is smaller than small.

According to the prophecies of Benjamín Solari Parravicini, the island will sink.

Maybe an old WW2 depth charge/bomb finally blew up and caused some landslip?
Or would that have shown up on a seismic chart-did anyone check for quakes at the time of the landslip?
There's alot of stuff dumped round there from years back,including shells and bombs.

I have no idea really, but if it went from Cornwall to Portsmouth, then whatever caused the wave would have to be fairly substantial to shift that volume of water? That's a long way....

i actually think that the earthquake on Dartmoor is more interesting.

i cant seem to find any info on Dartmoor's seismic history though so cant see how common they are...
