announcing yet another eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the southern half of the island. But this time, the unstable western flank of the volcano doesn’t hold. A huge chunk of the island simply breaks off and drops into the Atlantic Ocean. Plunge! No PLUNGE!
Immediately, up rises a tsunami. And not just a tsunami the sea is pushed up something like 650 meters, as 500 billion tons of rock and debris hit the ocean. Witnesses to the event will see how a massive wall of water towers up and starts sloshing westwards across the Atlantic, at the astonishing speed of over 700 kilometers per hour. Destination: US East Coast.
