The Megatsunami: Possible Modern Threat

"So should we worry? 'Maybe,' says McMurtry. He thinks that a tsunami, which can race across an entire ocean in a matter of hours, is a real threat to urbanized coastlines. Other experts agree that a large tsunami would be bad news for, say, Los Angeles or New York City. And tsunamis are not parochial. One originating in Alaska in 1964 killed people in California and generated damaging surges clear down in Chile."

On the other hand, I've always wanted to jet-ski in Kansas.
