Probably a landslide somewhere. Have they actually ever observed a meteotsunami?

I only remember the tsunami of top-shelf tang I got on my trip to NYC, as it did get pretty wet and wild down there.

All of the one-foot tall buildings were destroyed and the one-foot tall population decimated.  Oh, the Homunculusity!

That's not a tsunami. That's a storm surge.

Yank the rope headed out to sea on New Brunswick's beach.  It'll pop back up.

It was a tsunami, said U.S. Geological Survey oceanographer Jeff List, whose office is in Woods Hole. It just wasn't the earthquake- or landslide-generated surges people know and fear. This was a fairly rare meteotsunami, which originates with changes in atmospheric pressure.

There's a quahog on Nantucket that predicted the end of Winter too.
Eaten.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure IF a tsunami hit the East Coast, people would notice. >_>

I am disappointed no one has pointed out the irony that this links to The Big Story on AP and it is about a wave that was 1 foot.

I thought that was a pic from superstorm Sandy, but then I realized Liberty's torch is in her right hand, not her left.

Tsunami?

More like a tsunomi, amirite?

No it was "under a foot above" what ever that means.

I'm several hundred miles inland with a mountain range between me and the nearest ocean, So I'd probably find out on Fark if it did happen.

Pilikia: That's not a tsunami. That's a storm surge.


Also, tsunamis are not 100-foot high walls of water depicted by Hollywood.

But... but... but... A 6" rise in sea level will DECIMATE THE EAST COAST.

Yes, yes, I know: 1/10.

How the fark can we properly panic without advance mass media hysteria?

It destroyed most of the residential property in Atlantic City, doing tens of dollars worth of damage.

/and left a ring around the Atlantic Ocean

Everybody knows the east coast is nothing but mongoloids who cross-bred with cthulu spawn. A little water is nothing to those "people."

I think you have us confused with Mississippi...
Try the Google Earth app...

While they think it was weather caused, if it was caused by the first slippage of an underwater landslide, it could very well send a mega tsunami barreling down on the East Coast.
