Tsunami for North America ~ wahoo!
I've seen estimates of the wave reaching to elevations of 150' (land elevation, not water height) inland ~ in a lot of places that's 50 to 100 miles inland.
Thank god.. I'm 300+ miles inland!
I hear ya' ~ but reflect on all the infrastructure that IS
within 100 miles of the coast. And of course, the normal gridlock associated with evacuations. Not like 24-48+ hours one has prior to a hurricane. This event would only give a six hour warning or so ~ and if it happened at night, so much the worse.
This would be a true Black Swan event. Of course, the gov, ensconced in their cushy mile high alt-facility in Denver would not let the crisis go to waste.
