Future scenario: Mega-tsunami hits New York

Some scientists believe that the collapse of a volcano on one of the Canary Islands would release so much rock into the sea that it would create the biggest wave mankind would have ever seen – a mega-tsunami, unleashed upon the Atlantic Ocean with potentially devastating results. Their predictions can model its size and the speed at which it might progress. Thankfully, such a collapse only seems to occur every few tens of thousands of years. But what if the unthinkable really happened? We have used the latest scientific models to create a near-future scenario. In this clip, just hours after the Tsunami began, it has crossed the Atlantic… and is about to strike New York.
