THEORY EXPLORED: Could La Palma's Current Volcanic Eruption Spark US East Coast "Mega-Tsunami"?

"One conspiracy theory spreading online suggests the volcanic activity in La Palma could lead to an Atlantic Ocean super-tsunami, if part of La Palma breaks away into the ocean, causing a displacement of water large enough to trigger a tsunami. Such a tsunami could wipe out American cities on the East coast, such as New York, Boston, or even Washington, DC. "

This is labeled a "conspiracy", as the media Marxists want you skeeeered of COVID-19

A Mega-Tsunami Is Coming; Can the East Coast Even Prepare?

"All 3,000 feet of water roars as it barrels away from La Palma’s coast toward the United States. As the most western island of the Canary Islands, La Palma sits eight to 10 hours away from the eastern shore by plane. It’s the one piece of good news: Residents have a window of time to evacuate.

But chaos breeds chaos, and soon the highways are clogged with cars, frightened families from Boston to Miami trying to flee inland. A final silver lining: The wave decreases as it sojourns across the Atlantic from a staggering 3,000 to a mere 160 feet."

Side with the Marxists in the media if you wish. Marxists: move along, nothin' ta see here... burp...

Canary Island Landslides and Potential Megatsunami

"The Canary Islands are a group of seven volcanic islands that lie 100 kilometers off the coast of Africa. These islands grew over a hotspot as in the Hawaiian islands and all but one has active volcanoes. The coastlines of the Canaries are characterized by massive, steep cliffs and there has long been speculation that these features formed by dramatic collapse. What makes this possibility super significant is the fact that this process could trigger massive tsunamis that could hit the coasts of Europe, the eastern seaboard of the US, and Antarctica. In fact, speculation is that giant blocks of limestone that weigh hundreds of tons meters above sea level in the Bahamas were delivered there by a megatsunami and the Canary Island landslides are a possible culprit. And more locally, tsunami deposits found in the Canary island suggest waves in the past over 150 meters high!

Cumbre Vieja is the main volcano on the island of La Palma and has erupted recently causing large cracks to grow involving the significant motion of the western volcano flank. This has caused speculation that this flank could collapse. The flank has a volume of 1.5 trillion metric tons and models suggest that if it were to collapse it would generate a tsunami 1000 m high that would be 50 m when it arrived in Europe and along the eastern coast of the US. Because this scenario would be devastating to cities including New York, Boston, and Miami as well as coastal real estate in New Jersey, North and South Carolina, and Florida, it has been rigorously investigated by scientists."

I thought he was on the lee, (Western shore) of Martha's Vineyard. I could be wrong, (only one functional brain cell). N' frankly: I don't care...
