There was a documentary about this a few years ago, showing it has happened
before. I cannot find the one I'm thinking of.....The other possible disaster is
a mega Quake. On Bob Nevritts show he has said San Francisco is overdue
and the Yellowstone Volcano could blow.

U.S. fears overdue 'megathrust' earthquake will trigger tsunami and decimate unprepared cities on north-west coast

Cascadia fault line has lain dormant for 300 years
Eruption could trigger tsunami, devastating seaside communities - and reach as far as Japan
The north-west coast of the U.S. could be devastated by a huge movement of undersea plates known as a 'megathrust' earthquake, scientists say.
A review of the dangers posed by the Juan de Fuca plate released in the wake of the Japanese quake has raised fears that the Pacific seaboard could be similarly ravaged.
The horrifying possibilities have been brought to light by data researched by the Active Tectonics and Seafloor Mapping Laboratory at Oregon State University.
And the results are shown in a documentary, Megaquake: The Hour That Shook Japan, which is set to go out on the Discovery Channel in the UK this weekend.

As long as the big quakes and swarms of smaller ones are happening on the western borders of the Pacific Oceanic Plate then the accumulated stress is being released on that side of the plate instead of accumulating on its eastern boundary, i.e. Pacific West coastline.

That's the simplicity of it. The rest is fear mongering speculations in the same vein of the so-called La Palma threat which was sponsored by insurance companies dealing with "natural catastrophes" and aired by that same BBC...

See the data for the La Palma "tsunami" on this site:

Is that a tsunami on now or is that a documentary? No access to BBC documentaries or else from Canada. No news of mega tsunami on Canadian news. So what is it? If it is a documentary, please change the alarmist title. Thanks. If not, I to get the BBC news?

Its a documentary about a Tsunami caused if one of the Canari Islands slips into
the Atlantic which would possibly hit the US East coast. There is a thread on here
monitoring one of the islands I think ?

Sorry if the title was alarmist will have a word with the BBC, Interesting program that did discuss briefly the controversial nature of the extent of the tsunami, needless to say I fell asleep 3/4 of the way through, but it would seem America has a 3-4 hour warning system . I will say I found it unbelievable that an earth collapse in las palmas could potentially cause so much damage so far away!! I am sorry the link didn't work for others.

There's a tsunami right now? Is it the El Hierro heading to the east coast, and how soon before it hits landfall? Is it west coast?

I can't find any news on it!

Yep!

El Hierro grew oars and is heading west at ramming speed to the beat of its earthquakes drumming... about one a day right now...
