Texas Coast Has Recorded Tsunamis

Post by Ptarmigan » Sat Oct 02, 2021 10:56 am

Cumbre Vieja has been erupting lately in La Palma. It is one of the areas that could produce a tsunami if part of the island slipped into the Atlantic.

Turns out the Texas Gulf Coast has recorded tsunamis or higher than normal waves that are not from weather events.
