    Looks like end of days on the news.

    Balls of fire one channel, huge tankers, hundreds of cars just swirling around on an other.

    Low lying parts of British Columbia (particularly Vancouver Island) are being evacuated at the moment. Small Tsunami wave expected in about an hour.

    Poor poor people. Imagine the terror. Thanks Maurice, for that information and of course, I suppose the world is still evolving. Now bloody nuclear plants added to the mixture.


    I was just thinking about tsunamis. Remember the legand that Ireland would be swallowed by the sea. A tsunami, maybe. Between man and nature, we seem a bit of a disasterous project, don't we?

    Energy map of the tsunami - Chile is going to catch it again, as well as Samoa, Hawaii and other islands.

    If/when it does, I'd imagine a tsunami would be just one of the probs

    What's of more concern is there are a large number of Volcanoes in that part of the world which are showing signs of activity .... one to watch perhaps

    Bloody hell FIVE, that is scary. Never knew that about Yellowstone Park. Isn't it incredible that anything managed to survive at all? Noted how it said that volcanos and such like are likely to cause the extermination of certain species. Terrifying. Fascinating. Saved the info on favourites for the grandsons. They take after me in that they love learning about how things happen like earthquakes. It'll be the first thing Johnny will ask when he arrives, I know. The daughter has no interest in anything that comes without Revlon on it. sigh.
