Hope you can swim, too, Rugbypup. :smile:
About 20 years ago an article ran in the Asbury Park Press that said Farmingdale, NJ would one day be ocean front property. Not because of a tsunami, but because of the fault line that runs from the Palisades down to about Matawan. :lmao: We still laugh about that. :biggrin1:
...back under the bed me thinks, lol.
Lol, is it that island (Las Palmas?) in the Canaries?
It's quite feasible apparently, because half of the island has already slipped during the last earthquake in the 40s/50s or whenever. One day they think the whole side could slip into the sea - but they don't know when (or if).
Apparently something similar happened 1000s of years ago, which could explain the occurrence of huge boulders stuck on top of cliffs in central America, which couldn't otherwise have got there.
I like the doom-laden narrators they choose for these kind of programs. There was a spate of them during the pre-millenium doomsday period in the late 90s.
I grew up in the LA area waiting for *The Big Earthquake* that was going to turn California into an island. I really don't worry about something until it is imminent. However I did give this some thought before I bought my house in Honolulu....it's high on a ridge but somehow I don't think it will matter if or when this happens.

There really is no winning a fight with Mother Nature!
Las Palmas is the Capital city on the Island of Gran Canaria. The Island referred to is La Palma which is completely different but part of the same group. It's an easy mistake to make though as even though locals do so. La Palma is the most westerly Island with nothing but ocean between it and the east coast of the US. Map of the Islands here.
Try not to worry about it though as when it's really clear visibility (about 10 times a year) I can see La Palma from my apartment. I'll know about it long before you and can send the warning :wink:
Nevermind all that... we've got great white sharks in Chatham!
Cheers Davey - it's really something when mods offer to warn you of an impending tsunami! Talk about good service! heheheh
:biggrin1: If it were to happen I doubt I'd get the chance :frown1: Being only about 70 miles from the source.
Forget about the East Coast of the USA. The whole world may be doomed:
