All of you know about the recent tsunami in SE asia and its mass devistation. But what you might not know is the biggest ever recorded was in 1958, where the wave reached 1,700 feet high. Thats a mighty wave!

What gets even more incredible is the danger of La Palma:

"If the Cumbre Vieja were to collapse as one single block it would create a giant mega-tsunami with an initial wave height of 650 metres and a wavelength of 30-40 kilometres travelling westwards across the Atlantic with speeds up to 720 kilometres an hour towards America."
