Hey Salty, long time.

Did you know about the huge risk that Cumbre Vieja and or Cumbre Nueva pose to the Eastern seaboard?

They pose massive landslide risks that could send a 130 m tsunami across the Atlantic to the East coast?

Some poo poo the risk, but if ya like near the water, (10 miles + or -) and are near sea level I'd be on me toes!

I'm not near water but some of my siblings live in Florida. No I didn't know about those risks. Geez like we don't have enough bad karma lately.

I've switched parties since we were on a site together so you may hate me now.
It's good to see you here though. Like old times.

BTW the 130 meter figure is controversial, that many dismiss, use duckduckgo to search the net for information.

Me thinks you use to live in Idaho, (only one functional brain cell so I could be wrong).

If I lived in Florida I'd be very concerned as the wave, (if it is as big as the most aggressive estimates), may wash nearly over that peninsula.

If there is a massive landslide there will be only hours of warning, and everybody will be heading to high ground (if there is such a thing in Florida).

Tsunamis in the Atlantic are quite rare, butt: potentially a real serious risk due to the gentle slopes on the right coast.

Me overpriced $0.02

I would never "hate you": Salty. I just hope you are still on the Left so we can cross swords, (like back in the day).

She has always been a Democrat, now she portrays a hard core leftist that goes along with everything that is progressive, woke, and PC, with a slice of socialism.

We all love her.
