News from Science


Scientists reveal that around 73,000 years ago, a landslide in the Cape Verde archipelago triggered a massive tsunami that was powerful enough to push 700-ton boulders over island cliffs. Scientists warn about the devastating impact such a rare event could have if it hit a populated area in the future.

ANCIENT 850-FOOT TSUNAMI COULD HAPPEN AGAIN: A 9,300-foot-tall volcano on the island of Fogo, one of the world’s largest and most active volcanoes, collapsed during an eruption 73,000 years ago, making a wave so big it swept over nearby island.
