Earthquake in history: Great Earthquake of Lisbon November 1, 1755 killed 90,000 people in 6 seconds – Tsunami reached US and Canada coasts within few hours – Is La Palma going to do the same?

The Great Lisbon Earthquake and tsunami

On the morning of November 1, 1755, a great earthquake shook Portugal’s capital city of Lisbon as worshipers filled churches and cathedrals for the All Saints’ Day Mass.

In seconds it left the city in ruins and in minutes those ruins were on fire. The earthquake probably killed about 90,000 – 100,000 people. Many of the survivors fled to the wharves and keys of Lisbon’s port, but they would find no safety there.

The first tsunami wave surged up the Tagus estuary about an hour after the earthquake, reached a maximum runup of 12 meters (40 feet), and killed another 1000 people. At least two more tsunami waves surged into the city, completing the earthquake’s destruction.

At Portugal’s coastal city of Lagos the tsunami was even larger, perhaps 30 m (100 ft). It went on to damage the ports of Cadiz in Spain, then Safi and Agadir in Morocco.

The tsunami also spread north: it caused minor damage at Brest in Brittany, some flooding in England in the Scilly Islands and in Cornwall, and extensively flooded of the low-lying areas of the city of Cork, Ireland.

As it spread out across the Atlantic, the tsunami first reached Madeira, where observers recorded a runup of 4 m (13 ft), then the Canary Islands, the Azores, and eventually the West Indies, where observers recorded runups of about a 1 m (3 ft) in Barbados, Martinique, Guadeloupe, and Antigua (and questionable reports of large runup in the Virgin Islands).

Though the tsunami must have hit Colonial America, no one recorded it there, though it was observed in Newfoundland.

The model of this tsunami assumes its source was a magnitude 8.5 earthquake on the Horseshoe Fault off of Cape Finisterre. Baptista, et al. (2011) explain how this fault matches the tsunami observations better than the several other proposed sources for the Great Lisbon Earthquake.

Similitudes with La Palma?

As you know, the Cumbre Vieja volcano is currently erupting on the island of la Palma in the Canary Islands, which are even closer to the American East Coast.

As demonstrated in various scientific publications, a slide from this mountain could kill millions of people in Europe and along Northern America’s eastern seaboard. Some eminent scientists warn that it’s purely a matter of time until it happens.

And this is how the tsunami wave would propagate:

This is how the tsunami would develop:

  • 2 Minutes: A 900 meters (3,000 ft) thick dome of water rises above the landslide.
  • 5 Minutes: The dome collapses to a height of 500 meters (1,600 ft) as it advances by 50 kilometers (31 mi); additionally, wave valleys form.
  • 10 Minutes: The landslide is now over. Waves reaching heights of 400–600 meters (1,300–2,000 ft) hit the three western Canary Islands.
  • 15–60 Minutes: 50–100 meters (160–330 ft) high waves hit Africa. A 500 kilometers (310 mi) wide train of waves advances across the Atlantic.
  • 3–6 Hours: The waves hit South America and Newfoundland, reaching heights of 15–20 meters (49–66 ft) and 10 meters (33 ft), respectively.
  • Spain and England are partially protected by La Palma, thus tsunami waves there only reach 5–7 meters (16–23 ft).
  • 9 Hours: Waves 20–25 meters (66–82 ft) approach Florida; they are not expected to grow farther as they hit the coast.

Even if you don’t believe the tsunami scenario will ever happen, just prepare yourself for the worse… Then you will feel safer!

  1. The usual leftwing clowns will blame the tsunami on “climate change”, then the pathologists will label the deaths as “covid”.
    Hoax after hoax these psychopaths feed us!

  2. When they say “many scientists say” but don’t give any names, it’s a clue the info is BS. Thus, not worth watching….

  3. Over three thousand miles of ocean between La Palma and the United State is a long way for that energy to maintain its forward thrust. Take a look on google earth and actually look at that island. There are no steep underwater cliffs, only a gentle slope from the island to the bottom of the ocean in that area. It will be very difficult to get a slide of the magnitude they are trying to push with their fear mongering to happen instantaneously. It will be more like a slow slide which will not create the type of Tsunami the fear mongers are trying to shove down our throats. A slow slide of the south west side of that island will not generate the type of Tsunami energy they are warning of.

    If you drill down in Google Earth and look at Hawaii’s big island where their volcano is erupting, you see a cliff that goes miles deep to the ocean floor, that is where if a large chunk fell off that island it would create a sizable tsunami because of how the earth moves when in free-fall off a cliff rather than what is seen at La Palma’ gradual slope.

  4. La Palma
    You’ll get a lot of slashing around them islands and that’s it
    You wanna look at the fault lines instead

  5. Israel attack on Iran is high in NOV and since end of NOV IRAN
    will say if you remove all sanctions then we come to negotiations.
    Iran is playing again, Israel and USA and NATO will not let Iran have Islam Bombs Atomic. Iran will be bombed to stone ages sooner than later. We have wait Ayatollahs in Iran which are invaders like Mohamed attacked Iran forced all middle east in to Islam. Is it possible attack on Iran is high yes can it be delayed yes, weather conditions and no one put troops in landing in Iran.
    The plan is attack without contact. The day shall come we all Iranian become Christians or Zoroastrians or … Majority in Iran will become Christian. Mohamed brought death and misery to Iran. I am Cyrus the Great children’s of Cyrus his name came in Bible 236 Time.

    • Israel and its lying sycophants (you) are pathetic.
      Iran hasn’t invaded another nation for over 200 years, since they were Persia.
      Can the Bolshevik goblins who run Israel & the US say that?
      Russia, China and the US should give Iran the bomb, then that satanic tribe would act like good neighbors

  6. This is what we call it mother of quakes are waiting and over due and Volcano activities are high as well. This is now manufactured quakes and Volcano’s are done by satellites and lasers creates fires. Humanity is in extinction process from not alien from NWO?

    This article was beforehand revealed January 16, 2021, and has been up to date with new information.

    The thought behind sensible know-how is that your cellphone or equipment does the considering for you. Researchers at Stanford Medicine have taken this to a complete new degree and hope to develop a rest room that evaluates your excrement every time you utilize the bathroom.1

    A sensible gadget can do lots of the issues your laptop does, akin to hook up with the web, use software program and adapt to suit a present set of circumstances. These applied sciences usually embody sensors, databases and wi-fi entry to the web.

    Smart know-how was a boon to enhancing dwelling safety programs that could possibly be monitored via your laptop and linked to native authorities. Originally, know-how was geared toward making the lives of senior residents just a little simpler. This was known as gerontechnology and commenced within the early Nineteen Nineties.2

    By the early 2000s, sensible dwelling automation grew to become extra widespread and extra inexpensive. Currently, anybody can wire their dwelling with sensible know-how utilizing devices they buy at laptop shops and available software program put in on their laptop and smartphone.3

    Sensors measure temperature, humidity, mild and movement or noise. The management community connects gadgets and the pc system collects information and acts based mostly on a set of predefined guidelines. These features are basically the premise for the brand new sensible rest room.

  7. Yep, see the wave doesn’t have to be so very high. I remember watching the Indonesia tsunami. It pushed all kinds of debris into the populated area, and that is what can really be devastating.

    If you get picked up in the water, you can be slammed, or something pins you underwater. Swim near a jetty on an incoming high tide, and you will see what I mean.
