Experts Warn: Australia Could Be Hit By Destructive Tsunami ‘At Any Time’

    Experts are warning that Australia could be hit by a destructive tsunami “at any time.”  As of right now, scientists are saying “so far, we’ve been lucky.” But that luck is bound to run out eventually.

    According to The Daily Mail, experts have said it is only a matter of time before Australia is hit by a devastating tsunami. They also said the country’s coastal cities have been fortunate not to be struck by a series of destructive waves triggered by meteor impacts or seismic activity as of yet.  Past tsunamis, the most recent in 1491, have crashed over 60 meter-high (almost 197 feet high) cliffs and sent seawater as far inland as the Blue Mountains, 50 kilometers (31 miles) west of Sydney.

    Dale Dominey-Howes, co-director of the Australian Tsunami Research Centre at the University of New South Wales said tsunamis pose a very real threat to Australian cities. Such a disastrous and catastrophic event could hit without any warning too.  “If it occurred without warning on a Saturday afternoon in summer the impacts would be catastrophic,” Dominey-Howes told the Australian Geographic.  “I suspect it’s only a matter of time before we are affected by something damaging.”

    Despite Australia’s coastline being monitored 24-hours-a-day every day for impending tsunamis, which are only recorded once every two years in Australia, scientists still think it’s time to brace those living in the coastal areas for the possibility that a tsunami could impact their lives.  Although rare, tsunamis also pose a threat to swimmers as they can bring abnormal waves, tides and dangerous currents.

    More recent earthquakes and tsunamis have proven particularly deadly, claiming nearly 750,000 lives over the past 20 years. That is more than other extreme weather events, according to a forthcoming report from the U.N. Office for Disaster Risk Reduction.

    The very factors that make coastal cities appealing places to reside also amplify the dangers of a natural disaster.  As more humans move to these beautiful and serene areas, the risk to human life, wealth, and infrastructure will also continue to increase.

      1. As well as any other ocean front property can expect the same.

      2. Good thing Columbus wasn’t looking at Australia in 1491.

      3. “Experts.” Geez, Mac. You sound just like MSM.

      4. HARPO testing, testing. This is not a test. You are being culled. Thank you for your co-operation. We couldn’t have done it without you.


      5. That will sure jack up ocean front property.

      6. The texture on the surface of the Earth is said to be proportionate to the texture on a cue ball. How are people the size of a germ supposed to prep for a planetary catastrophe, where there is no such thing as ocean front property.

      7. Let hope it doesn’t happen, but if Mother Nature wants one to hit it will hit.


      8. Hmmmm, you know, I think I read that in the January 1975 issue of “DUH !” magazine…..
        Thanks to the “Captain Obvious” experts down-under.

      9. Thats because most of the west of sydney is A) nearly at sea level, B) below sea level. Queensland itself is safe due to 200,000 sqm of Barrier Reef that breaks up Tsunamis.

        Once you get into Central Australia, different ball game; west of the Dividing Range will become another inland sea again- originally that started around the Darwin area almost down to South Australia.

        Source: Spent 15 years on drill rigs through that area & spent plenty of time with Geologists.

      10. OK
        first: thing the closest fault line that could cause a wave that big is the Kermadec trench,
        second thing: due to the distance Australia wont receive as much damage as New Zealand would i mean, Australia would have a few hours warning time! New Zealand gets 20 minutes at best before the wave hits,
        third: the part of the Kermadec trench that is most likely to slip puts New Zealand between the Kermadec trench and Australia,
        fourth: the only thing that can cause a 60m high wave is an meteorite impact
