Tsunamis & the flatness of South Florida?

I haven't heard of people talking about them.

But, with how flat is it throughout South Florida, it seems that if one did occur, they'd certainly travel quite far inland?

Anyone hear much about tsunamis and the likelihood in South Florida?

Periodically there is nonsense about a land slip in the Azores creating a tsunami effect in Florida. There are islands in the way, but people like to be scared. There are no active faults in the area and the ocean shelves for a good distance, so chances of anything happening are pretty slim. Hurricanes will give some swell, and the immediate beach area can be affected, but tsunami? Unless a big meteor were to hit, nah.

A big quake in the Puerto Rico trench could potentially send some waves at the northeast coast of Florida - basically, any land that isn't guarded by the partial breakwaters of the Bahamas.

I think Global Warming will occur before that happens.

You have a better chance of being struck by lightning or winning the power ball than a tsunami affecting So. Fla.....

Geeze between Tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, Terrorism, the Wall Street Bankers, and the Mexican Border, I may as well give up and shoot myself now.

Your post prompted me to do some reading. It seems that the chance although not zero, is pretty close to zero.
