Prepare NOW​

  • If you are a visitor, ask about community plans.
  • Learn the signs of a potential tsunami, such as a loud roar from the ocean, or unusual ocean behavior, such as a sudden rise or wall of water or sudden draining of water showing the ocean floor.
  • Know and practice community evacuation plans and map out your routes from home, work, and play. Pick shelters 100 feet or more above sea level or 300 feet above sea level on the East Coast.
  • Create a family emergency communication plan that has an out-of-state contact. Plan where to meet if you get separated.
  • Sign up for your community’s warning system. The Emergency Alert System (EAS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio also provide emergency alerts.

Survive DURING​

  • If there are natural signs or official warnings of a tsunami, then move immediately to a safe place as high and as far inland as possible. Listen to the authorities, but do not wait for tsunami warnings and evacuation orders.
  • If you are outside of the tsunami hazard zone and receive a warning, then stay where you are unless officials tell you otherwise.
  • Leave immediately if you are told to do so. Evacuation routes are often marked by a wave with an arrow in the direction of higher ground.
  • If you are in the water, then grab onto something that floats, such as a raft, tree trunk, or door.
  • If you are in a boat, then face the direction of the waves and head out to sea. If you are in a harbor, then go inland.

Be Safe AFTER​

  • Listen to local alerts and authorities for information on areas to avoid and shelter locations.
  • Avoid wading in floodwater, which can contain dangerous debris. Water may be deeper than it appears.
  • Be aware of the risk of electrocution. Underground or downed power lines can electrically charge water. Do not touch electrical equipment if it is wet or if you are standing in water.
  • Stay away from damaged buildings, roads, and bridges.
  • Document property damage with photographs. Conduct an inventory and contact your insurance company for assistance.
  • Save phone calls for emergencies. Phone systems are often down or busy after a disaster. Use text messages or social media to communicate with family and friends.

If you are on the East Coast of America or Puerto Rico you need to make a plan now in the event a probable & historical reoccurring landslide tsunami occuring in the coming days, weeks, and months.

This isn't alarmist or fear mongering. Quite simple people should be making a plan, remain calm, and keep a close eye on the situation as it develops.

It's coming to attention to many that even with 7 hours evacuating time that it is unlikely to be successful for most to evacute in time.

You would have well over 100 million people taking to the streets and highways. Even the back roads will get congested.

So best advise if you live in a East Coast community is to find a city 100 miles minimal inland and get to the top floor of a skyscraper or very tall highrise NOT in a coastal city.

I would not seek shelter in a very tall building directly settled on the coast as the skyscrapers & highrise may fall over on or near the coast.

Many will likly die by sitting in their cars on congested roads as the tsunami comes inland. So just find a big tall building at least 100 miles from the coast. If you can't get to it in time because of congestion, well than your shit out of luck or ditch the car an run.

Final note there is NO guarantee that there will be enough space for you in the top floors of a skyscraper or highrise as millions of people across the entire east coast are seeking higher shelter away from coast.

Just my advice on how you can prepare for the worst

It's coming to attention to many that even with 7 hours evacuating time that it is unlikely to be successful for most to evacute in time.
An evcacuation in this short period of time is unrealistic, the hours before the Tsunami impact would be chaotic and cause a total traffic collapse.

The time to leave is now,
you can could go on a vacation far inland until the danger / eruption is over
but earthquakes can happen anytime and cause a landslide with little warnings.


So the absolute best preparedness is to permanently move to a safe location.

Survive During:
  • If you are in the water, then grab onto something that floats, such as a raft, tree trunk, or door.
At all cost, stay out of the water.
It's not clean water, the Tsunami is full of razor sharp clam shells, corals, sand and stones and on it's move inland it will pick up any harmful objects, chemicals, bacteria and even nuclear waste.
Also the top speed of the Tsunami on impact could be 650 mph, a giant water wall at this speed is as hard as steel and weighs a million tons.
Surviving in the water of a Mega Tsunami is impossible it could tear the flesh from your body,
but most likely it will instantly crush you to a pulp on it's way inland.
Also it will suck you out into the sea in a lethal maehlstrom of wreckage.

  • If you are in a boat, then face the direction of the waves and head out to sea.
Return to land if possible, if not possible, keep facing the ship towards the waves but don't drive towards the waves.
Before impact you should put on a life jacket and go inside to the back of the ship.
The ship it'self forms a crumple zone which offers some protection against the strong kinetic impact.
You should fasten your "seatbelt" as if you were in an airplane, bend your head forward and fix it with your elbows to prevent head and neck injury.

Although the impact should be instantly deadly that's the only chance you have.

Good videos but this tsunami event will be different and you will have many hours of warning time but much worse than any tsunami in recent human history in the Americas should be noted when watching.

No need to evacuate now. It may or may not happen. But the scale alone means you should be ready. DuckNCover is just being a alarmist. Need to stay calm, get ready, and stay alert. Simple.

This will be a ongoing threat for months until the volcano calms down. Unrealistic for anyone to evacuate for many months and also silly to uproot your life and move over something that may not happen.

Getting away in time is the main problem and I explained how dangerous this Mega Tsunami can be.
You can't compare it to a normal tsnunami.

I honestly don't think it will happen this bad,
but the volcano will probably no longer extinguish.
The volcano will continue to spit fire just like all the other active volcanos.
In the long term,
La Palma will become uninhabitable.
And with every passing day, week or month the risk is getting higher.
It could be in a week or in a year when we run out of luck.
Even if no land slide will happen ...

this volcano is so strong it could destroy our environment, the climate, our forrests and our health.

The volcano has been producing between 8,000 and 10,500 tons of sulfur dioxide a day,
-sulfur dioxide is smelly and irritates the skin, eyes, nose and throat. It can also cause acid rain and air pollution.
- volcanic ash, which can cause respiratory problems

It's already causing acid rain in Europe


:oops: More dangers lie ahead when the rivers of lava finally reach the ocean and produce clouds of toxic gas.

In light of developments I urge anyone on the US east coast tonight if you have yet to prepare or plan in the event a Atlantic wide tsunami occuring to do so now.

If you where putting it off to wait and see, current events have shown problematic seismic activity. This is your nod, your sign, or your confirmation to go ahead to plan, prepare, & PRACTICE those plans.

Some helpful tips would to buy physical paper maps. Draw out your rout out of town to higher ground. Choose back roads far away from any highway or main roads. PICK/PLAN MORE THAN ONE WAY as some roads may come to a stand still.

Supplies won't be much of a issue as you need to move as fast as possible and to much stuff will slow you down. All you can do is keep your car packed of goods and water, always have a full tank of gas with gas cans full stored safely in your car. So you can go at a moment's notice.

Practice driving these routes you have selected as your evacuation routes. Practice them until you don't need a map. BUT always keep physical paper maps in your car in the event all planned routes fail. Because the event of mass panic cell coverage could crash with everyone in the world calling the east coast at once. Meaning no google maps or GPS.

Do not read into the doom porn, don't over think the possibility of it happening. Only thing anyone should focus on is planning, preparing, & practicing.

I would have to agree with you, DarkNoon. I've followed this area since 2011, when there was some activity, but no eruption--just mild shaking in the high 2 to low 3 brackets. I understand that today, (10-26-21 @ 1400 EDT) that another vent, (now totaling 5) has opened and there was a landslide, BUT nothing hit the ocean. Yes, this thing is far from over. The information you have given, as far as being prepared is good and logical. The key, if anything does occur is going to be timing for a fast bug-out. As far as getting information, be like a horse eating hay---meaning, eat the grass and spit out the sticks.
