I fear if this were to happen it would happen at 3am ya kno, in the middle of the night on the east coast . If youre phone and tv and local loud speakers made that Greenland trailer emergency broadcast sound and you lived on the coast in a city is 4 or 5 hrs enough time to get far inland, with millions of others on the jammed freeways how much time wasted in panic fighting scrambling to save what they thought was forever

Yes, but none made of concrete, brick or masonry, and NO SKYSCRAPERS.

This event would be about half the power of the Tohoku event, and would kill thousands, but it would NOT be a Hollywood-style apocalypse.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79660604


Overall true, AC. The loss of human life on the other hand will be in the millions with amazing ease. The loss of animal life such as pets will number in the tens of millions. This will force alot of the remaining affected humans to move into the UN Agenda 21/30 approved locations.
 Quoting: darkwolf007


There would be a minimum of 4-5 hours notice. Every T.V. station and radio station wold be blaring, and every computer and phone would be lighting up with warnings for hours in advance. Millions dead would only be possible if millions ignored the evacuation orders.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79660604



I wonder if there is an estimate on how quickly the eastern seaboard could evacuate. I mean just the traffic jam that would occur in the first 15 min. would be insane. I'm thinking that many people would be stuck in traffic.
 Quoting: Unna



I'm thinking the same thing. We always see people stuck on the roads during hurricane evec's.

But I think we'd have more than 5 hours. A tsunami usually travels at around 500-600 MPH...how far are the canary islands from the USA east coast?

Believe the Gulf Coast would also be hit because of force and the fact that FL is pretty flat. Cannot find info on how this area would be affected.
 Quoting: abrock


I read a while ago a cumbre vieja Mega tsunami would just roll over the whole state and empty into the gulf due to the flat terrain .

Nonsense. Florida has some 300' elevations at points south of Orlando. At worse, it would penetrate the Everglades, and devastate the immediate coatline.

The seismic swarm of Cumbre Vieja already adds more than 600 earthquakes
THE HURRY 26.12.2020 - 14:24 GMT 1

Cumbre Vieja.

The National Geographic Institute has updated the data of the new seismic swarm of La Palma and reports that up to 7:38 UTC today, December 26, and since the beginning of the seismic series on the 23rd, a total of of 602 earthquakes, of which 126 have been located. The epicenters of the localized earthquakes are located in a dispersed distribution, mainly on the western slope of Cumbre Vieja. Since the beginning of the series, the depth of the earthquakes has remained around 30 km and the maximum magnitude of the localized earthquakes is 2.3 mbLg. So far, the energy released in the form of earthquakes in the present series reaches a value of 6 × 109 Joules.

less than 50%

My personal thoughts & posts are mine alone.
I Love God, Jesus, good people, and the U.S.A. the way the Framers signed the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
In my real world life I don't have a problem with standing up to those with solid evidence of corruption from either side, of any issue or place. Many are they in this world that need to be rooted out.
That makes me a target to be destroyed by very powerful people, I understand this.
At some point we have to stand up for what is right before God. I have done this, lived this way, and will continue to do so till they finish me off or I croak of natural causes.

When Mt St Helens erupted in 1980, a huge side of the volcano did slide down to the land below. So it's possible a volcano in the ocean would do the same thing. But it must be very rare since there aren't many examples of it occurring through the ages.

Re: Breaking: EARTHQUAKE SWARM ONGOING IN LA PALMA'S CUMBRE VIEJA - HALF OF THE ISLAND COULD COLLAPSE AND DESTROY THE US EASTERN COAST
It's all the way on the other side of the ocean.

The energy is neither created nor destroyed so as the wave spreads out it becomes weaker in any area. It's got a lot of deep ocean to cross and pushing down on the deep water would dissipate some of the energy as it goes as well.

The energy is also dissipated by both the ocean floor topography and on that scale, by the asthenosphere which is the molten layer under the crust, which would act like a gel pad to absorb some of the energy.

East Coast should be fine. Even Bermuda should be fine.

Nearby Africa would be fucked. Probably the Azores too. Maybe even Spain and south coast Britain and Ireland as well. But not the US.

ENERGY DISSIPATION...It's a thing. Look it up.


Cumbre Vieja collapse would cause a 10-20' tsunami, MAX, anywhere along the Eastern U.S. seaboard.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79660604


Not according to the OP's second video... or, did you not bother to watch it? It states an initial incoming wave of 30 -meters in height and that includes "energy dissipation".

Of course, since this has never happened in recorded history, it's just pure conjecture, now isn't it? Or, IS IT?

lol.

been waiting for this one: Check out El Hierro Island. There have been studies run many times of the high possibility of a mountain of rock that could 'slab off' and create a monstrous Tsunami. An entire special tv documentary was created by Hallmark or History Channel? about it. These are VOLCANIC islands. (fire)

King James Bible
And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;

there are hundreds of recorded dreams/visions of the entire east coast being destroyed by a tsunami.

The USGS a few years ago advised that the California Big One has a 100 percent chance of happening within the next 50 years, may make it a State of islands.
Californians send your children your grand children to Canada where they would most likely be welcome and fit in. If Canada is not an option for you try France.

There have been several studies done on that Palma's group of volcanos, they say it will happen for sure, someday.

From the link in OP

"In this area of the island of La Palma, since October 2017 there have been up to 6 seismic series with similar characteristics. In this last year 2020, the one that occurred at the moment is the fourth series. The occurrence of events of this type in an active volcanic zone is within normality and does not present any risk to the population."
