Thank goodness it's not El Herrio doing anything it shouldn't. The US East Coast actually is at great risk if that ever goes. Look it up! I wish I were joking but here won't be anything left of the east coast if the tsunami happens from that volcano. The modest approach shows no less then a 1,200 foot wave that would strike within hours if El Herrio were to go completely. First striking Florida then traveling up towards the Hudson Valley though at that stage most momentum would be gone.
