A Lateral Collapse of Cumbre Vieja could generate a 50m tall tsunami that would hit the Eastern Seaboard and travel 25km inland
In 2001, Scientists Steven Ward (Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, University of California, Santa Cruz California, USA) and Simon Day (Benfield Greig Hazard Research Centre, Department of Geological Sciences, University College, London, UK) put forward a scientific paper showing how the entire western flank of Cumbre Vieja will eventually give way, possibly even during its next eruption; sending 500 thousand million tonnes of rock crashing into the ocean. Ward and Day's research, which took other examples of this phenomenon into account, suggested that the impact of this "lateral collapse" would generate a colossal wave – dubbed a "mega-tsunami", which could reach a local amplitude of between 650-1500 metres. This wave would then rapidly travel westwards reaching a speed of approximately 720kph. Although it would diminish in size by the time it made landfall on the eastern seaboard of America, it could still be as high as 50 metres (to give a sense of perspective, the statue of liberty is 93 metres tall), devastating everything in its wake up to 25km inland. In comparison with this projected scenario, the Indian Ocean tsunami that occurred in 2004, reached a height of only 24m at Bandeh Aceh – the region worst affected by the disaster, which was totally obliterated. If this event unfolds in the manner that Ward and Day have projected, then this "mega-tsunami" would be the greatest natural disaster in recorded history and would be a literal fulfillment of a mountain being cast into the sea in Rev 8:8, whick is recapitulated again by the angel throwing a great millstone into the sea in Rev 18:21, connecting this event with the fall of "Babylon" - the ruling world-power in the eschatological age.

There will be no more human sacrifices.

How could one deal with a face of an island breaking off and subsequential tsunami?

Speak the words "stop no dont"?
