Canary Island Mega Tsunami is a rather sensationalist article, apparently originally published in the Telegraph in 2001,which predicts that such an event
could flatten the Atlantic coastlines of Britain, Europe, North Africa and the United States of America and cause enormous damage to London and other UK cities....The scenario seems to rely on a fairly large "what-if", that is, the entire volcano "twice the size of the Isle of Wight" collapsing into the ocean.
Recently, scientists have realised that the next Mega Tsunami is likely to begin on one of the Canary Islands, off the coast of North Africa, where a wall of water will one day race across the entire Atlantic Ocean at the speed of a jet airliner to devastate the east coast of the United States, the Caribbean and Brazil.
Still, I think I'll be avoiding the Atlantic Coast...
