CANARY ISLAND VOLCANO TIDAL WAVE DUE
Scientists Warn Of Massive
Tidal Wave From
Canary Island Volcano
By Steve Connor
Science Editor
The Independent - London
8-29-1

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.

A massive slab of rock twice the volume of the Isle of Man would break away from the island of La Palma and smash into the Atlantic Ocean to cause a tsunami - a monster wave - bigger than any recorded, the scientists warned yesterday.

Most of the wave's energy, equivalent to the combined output of America's power stations for six months, would travel westwards to the American coast but enough would be flicked north towards the English Channel to cause catastrophic coastal damage.

A computer model has been designed to show the way the tsunami will build after the volcano, called Cumbre Vieja, erupts on La Palma, at the western end of the Spanish island chain. It describes the almost unimaginable scale of an event that the scientists say could happen at any time within the foreseeable future.

"We're looking at an event that could be decades or a century away - but there will be a degree of warning beforehand," said Simon Day, of the Benfield Greg Hazard Reseach Centre at Univeristy College London.

Most of the rocky western flank of Cumbre Vieja is unstable enough to be dislodged in the next big eruption of the volcano, which is active enough to explode at least once or twice a century. Its last big event was in 1949.

Such a landslide from a future eruption could travel up to 60 kilometres (37 miles) from La Palma's coast, causing the formation and then collapse of a dome of water 900 metres (3,000ft) high and tens of kilometres wide. The bow of this collapsing dome of water would become a giant wave, but also, as the landslide continued to move underwater, a series of crests and troughs would soon generate the "wave train" of the tsunami.

With the leading wave in front and crests pushing it on behind, it would sustain the power for the nine-hour journey to the American east coast.

Tsunami means harbour wave in Japanese and, though the occurrence has nothing to do with the tides, it is often called a tidal wave in English. Throughout history they have caused widespread devastation, with Britain last being affected by one in 1755 when an earthquake in Lisbon caused an unusually large wave to hit southern ports.

The computer model, compiled in collaboration with Steven Ward of the University of California, Santa Cruz, predicts that the tsunami will have a height of 100 metres (330ft) from crest to trough when it crashes into the shores of nearby north-west Africa. By the time it reached its final destination, the east coast of Florida and the Caribbean islands, the tsunami would still be up to 50 metres high.

Low-lying land in Florida would be vulnerable to a sea wave that would inundate the mainland for several kilometres inland. Everything in its path would be flattened, the computer model predicted.

Even though the wave would be much smaller when it reached Britain, it would still breach sea defences because it would be larger than the biggest storm waves for which they were designed, Dr Day said. "For low-lying land along the south coast it could penetrate up to a mile," he said.

Although there is little doubt that the landslide on La Palma will happen after a volcanic eruption, the difficulty is knowing exactly when it will occur. "Eruptions of Cumbre Vieja occur at intervals of decades to a century or so and there may be a number of eruptions before its collapse," Dr Day said. "Although the year-to-year probability of a collapse is therefore low, the resulting tsunami would be a major disaster with indirect effects around the world."

The scientists are calling for better warning instruments to be placed on La Palma so that an impending eruption can be detected quickly enough to alert other areas that might be affected by a tsunami.

"Cumbre Vieja needs to be monitored closely for any signs of impending volcanic activity and for the deformation that would precede collapse. The collapse will occur during some future eruption after days or weeks of precursory deformation and earthquakes," Dr Day predicted.

"An effective earthquake monitoring system could provide advanced warning of a likely collapse and allow early emergency management organisations a valuable window of time in which to plan and respond," he said.

A history of tsunamis

The Pacific Ocean is prone to earthquake-induced tsunamis caused by the so-called ring of fire volcanoes that girdle it. Ten lethal big waves have struck Japan, Hawaii, Alaska, Chile, Nicaragua and New Guinea over the past 100 years.

One of the most terrifying tsunamis occurred in 1792 when part of the Unzen volcano in Japan collapsed into the sea, setting up 100m (330ft) waves that killed 15,000 people in nearby fishing villages.

In 1868, a powerful tsunami killed 10,000 people when it smashed into the coast of Peru with enough energy to carry an American warship 3km (1.9m) inland.

When the Indonesian volcano of Krakatoa blew itself apart in 1883, it generated a wave that killed 36,000 inhabitants of Java and Sumatra.

Just 13 years later, in 1896, Japanese deep-water fishermen returned to their home ports to find their homes destroyed and 26,000 dead from a tsunami that must have slipped below the keels of their ships without them noticing.

Scientists Warn Of Massive Tidal Wave

This Is London.com 8-29-1

Britain may be hit by a monster wave predicted to devastate the coasts of Florida and Brazil following a volcanic eruption in the Canary Islands.

Scientists warn that the UK would probably not escape the disaster unscathed. A weaker, but still hugely destructive, wave is likely to hit Britain's Atlantic coastline.


Travelling at speeds of up to 500mph, the tsunami would be an unstoppable force.


Its first target was expected to be the West Saharan coast of Morocco, where the wave would measure an awesome 330ft from crest to trough.


But the built up coastal areas of Florida, Brazil and the Caribbean were expected to suffer the greatest destruction, according to a new forecast by Dr Simon Day, of the Benfield Greig Hazard Research Centre at University College London.


Here, the wave would reach heights of 130ft to 164ft - higher than Nelson's column - and travel four or five miles inland flattening everything in its path.


Previous research by Dr Day predicted that a future eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano was likely to cause the western flank of the mountain to slide into the sea.


The energy released by the collapse would be equal to the electricity consumption of the entire US in six months.


Working with Dr Steven Ward, from the University of California, Dr Day has now produced a new model which predicts more accurately how big the tsunami will be and where it will strike.

Construction Complete On El Destructo LTD CD

One of Rochester’s most unpredictable rock acts is poised to startle its fans once again, but this time by doing what is expected of popular performers: releasing a CD at long last.

The distinctive take-no-prisoners sound and furious stage presence of frontman Ed Repard made El Destructo Ltd a favorite among local club-goers from the late ‘90s through 2003. The act’s notoriety spread so far that the Mex restaurant on Alexander Street actually kept an “El Destructo Ale” on the menu in its honor, yet its reputation was never bolstered by a CD release until now.

"There was never, ever a bad El Destructo show," drummer Ryan Kemp said. "Playing out was what we enjoyed the most and what came easiest to us. If you weren't having a cocktail and jumping up and down listening to us, letting the music pump through you, you weren't really at the show."

Kemp also played keyboards and shared duty on backup vocals with bassist Jimmy Handsome in one of El Destructo LTD’s many incarnations. Both play on the new CD, “Cumbre Vieja,” set to be released within the next month by CMI Records. The most important ingredient in El Destructo Ltd’s explosive mix, however, is certainly guitarist and lead vocalist Ed Repard.

El Destructo Ltd is the brainchild of Repard, whose musical resume includes such local acts as The Shop Class Squares. Appearing onstage like a dangerous Elvis Costello teetering on the brink of a meltdown, Repard dominates and sets the tone for both the act’s unstructured sound and its rapport with its fans.

"Ed was never one for genres." CMI Records CEO Cash Mattock said while trying to find the words to describe El Destructo LTD’s distinctive sound. "It's raw rock, sort of like New York romantic punk." Repard’s free-spirited refusal to be pinned down to one niche may have paid off by widening El Destructo LTD’s appeal.

"We had a pretty big cult fan base,” Kemp said. "It was all over the board. It included everyone from punks to metal fans to rockabilly guys to country."

Because El Destructo Ltd emphasizes fun and simplicity, it may never win any awards for minutely structured melodies, painstakingly planned performances or lyrics with meanings so deep they make your brain hurt. That doesn’t bother the act’s frontman one bit though.

"The kids don't like to think, so don't make 'em," is Ed's motto, according to Mattock, who also produced and engineered the new album.

Re: CANARY ISLAND VOLCANO TIDAL WAVE DUE
This story has been proved to be untrue. It actually contains outright lies.
For example, the article states that the volcano has exploded twice this century eg in 1949. This is a damned lie. The historical facts show that the volcano had a minor eruption in 1949 but that there was absolutely no explosion, it just dribbled lava for a few days. Admitedly you wouldn't want to be in the path of the lava when to creeps its way at snails pace down the hill. There was absolutely NO explosion. There were no lives lost.
In 1971 a similar dribbly spluttery minor eruption happenned and people came from all over the island to watch it. One person died because they got too close while taking photographs.
The article implies that the Cumbre Vieja is not monitored but it IS being monitored, agian they are lying. Actually there has been NO movement detected since 1949. NONE at all.
La Palma is not unstable.
They talk abaout a fault but there is no fault, just some surface cracks which are in fact a shallow fissure.
The calculations they used for the size of the wave are wrong, top scientists have proven that.
La Palma is not going to fall into the sea.
There will be no tsunami.
Bear in mind that the mastermind behind this 'disaster' propaganda is Bill McGuire: "Prophet of doom", or Disasterman as he calls himself. He is the head of a company selling Disaster Insurance, he gets paid to give courses and lectures about all sorts of hypothetical disaster events. He also makes a fortune from science fiction books about The End of the World (look him up on Amazon).

yeah but i bet these guys are connected to the zionist/satanic mindset that did 9/11 using directed energy weapon so wouldnt put it past them to use the same technology to create this possible volcanic scenario

When the Indonesian volcano of Krakatoa blew itself apart in 1883, it generated a wave that killed 36,000 inhabitants of Java and Sumatra.
 Quoting: WILL BE MAN MADE THOUGH 719472

charles fort analyses the krakatoa crap in one of his books - as usual
the story we are given about it conflicts with newspaper reports at the time
eg. we are told that the explosion was so huge and such vast amounts
of dust flung into the air that all across the world
there were incredible sunsets for the next 10 years -

in fact - there was a gap of 3 years between year 2 and 5 when
no incredible sunsets were to be seen

Re: CANARY ISLAND VOLCANO TIDAL WAVE DUE
Once the other geologists got a proper look at this, they started disagreeing. Now there's hardly anyone who believes it.

Certainly there is a fault line, and some movement has been detected, but the fault appears to be 4 km long, not 25 km. There is no evidence that it's 2 km deep, so any landslide would be superficial and might not happen all at once. There's a volcano, but it's comparatively small. And there's a lot of water inside the island, but if the volcano erupts and turns it to steam, it has lots and lots of escape routes through the porous lava. Therefore it won't push the rock into a landslide.

And this "research" was paid for by a firm that sells tsunami insurance.

Yep, this story is just a huge pile of BS. Just lame, stupid, ignorant.

If the entire island is 20km wide, and a part of it would crumble to the sea, sure there would be some sort of a tsunami. But a very small one. Not something that would travel across oceans.

So pathetic wannabe-doom.
