Dominica: Tsunami Risk?

Steve's Dominica and Dominica Weekly blog about a report which suggests that “Dominica is set to trigger a tsunami which may kill 30,000 in Guadeloupe.” Steve adds: “I don't know which is worse: the armchair scientist painting a Hollywood-style scenario, or the reporter dramatically renaming our mountain ‘Devil's Peak’ to fit in with the scary scenario.”

      according to the director of the uwi src, you should be more concerned (scared/afraid/frightened) about more possible scenarios such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricane impacts, flooding and landslides affecting dominica, rather than a rare tsunami event occuring.

    Or even the Cornflicker virus!
