What a mega tsunami in the Atlantic from La Palma would look like (BBC)



Mega-Tsunami. In this scenario, a volcanic eruption on the island of La Palma triggers a massive landslide wherein a sizable portion of the island collapses into the sea, causing a massive mega-tsunami to race across the Atlantic ocean and strike the east coast of the United States, inundating most of New York City, but leaving many buildings intact.

9,300 tremors have rattled the island of El Hierro since July 2011
October 7, 2011 -- CANARY ISLANDS -- Intense swarms of tremors beneath one of the volcanic Canary Islands has placed residents of El Hierro on alert for a possible eruption. Spain's Instituto Geografico Nacional (IGN) reported the 9,300 seismic movements on the island since July 17 have caused measurable changes in the terrain. El Hierro's only eruption during recorded history was in 1793, when the Volcano de Lomo Negro vent rumbled for a month and produced lava flows. Seismologists say they don't know if the rising ball of lava causing the latest rumblings will break through the surface, but they have issued a "yellow" alert as a precaution. IGN Director Maria Jose Blanco told reporters that any eruption would most likely have a "low explosive value." Tremors about 50,000 years ago produced an enormous landslide that cascaded into the ocean, creating a large tsunami that probably reached the North American coast. -- Earth Week



More undersea eruptions off Canary Islands

Two more undersea volcanic eruptions have been identified off the coast of one of the Canary Islands making three in all.

Authorities have kept the island of El Hierro on high alert.

It began at the end of last month with a tremor of 3.4 magnitude prompting the evacuation of around 50 people.

Edgar Cayce and today's Mt. Etna eruption

There's some news that Mt. Etna in Italy is erupting today (May 11, 2011).



This prediction dated until 1998, but with the flooding of the Midwest, it seems timely.



Edgar Cayce predicted that dramatic physical changes would affect the Earth in the years 1958-1998 and would begin with the eruption of Mt. Etna.



The Great Lakes would empty into the Gulf of Mexico linked with a time when ancient repositories would be discovered as people reached the appropriate level of consciousness. The three repositories mentioned are Egypt, the Bimini area, and the Yucatan.



After activities by Mt. Vesuvius, Mt. Pelee, the southern coast of California, the areas between Great Salt Lake and the southern portions of Nevada, we may expect, within the three months following, inundation by earthquakes, more in the Southern than the Northern Hemisphere. Portions of the New York, or New York City itself, will disappear as well as the southern portions of Carolina, Georgia.



Land will appear in the Atlantic and Pacific. Rise of Atlantis. And what is the coast line now of many a land will be the bed of the ocean. Even many battle fields of the present will be oceans, seas,the bays, the lands over which 'The New World Order' will carry on their trade as one with another.



The waters of the lakes will empty into the Gulf. It would be well if the waterway were prepared, but not for that purpose for which it is at present being considered. Then the area where I am now located (Virginia Beach) will be among the safety lands, as will be portions of what is now Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, and much of the southern portion of Canada and the eastern portion of Canada, while the western land -- much of that is to be disturbed as, of course much in other lands.



The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea.



The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye.



When there is the first breaking up of some conditions in the South Sea and those as apparent in the sinking or rising of that that's almost opposite same, or in the Mediterranean, and the Etna area, then we many know it has begun.



There will be the upheavals in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will make for the eruption of volcanoes in the torrid areas, and there will be the shifting then of the poles - where there has been those of a frigid or the semi-tropical will become the more tropical, and moss and fern will grow.



Strifes will arise through the period. Watch for them near the Davis Strait [between Greenland and Canada] in the attempts there for the keeping of the life line to land open. Watch for them in Libya and in Egypt, in Ankara and in Syria, through the straits about those areas above Australia, in the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf.
