Could waves hit here?
By BRIAN KATES
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
Saturday, January 1st, 2005

Six, maybe eight, hours. That's all it would take before the wave crashed through New York Harbor, sending ships hurtling onto shore and flooding lower Manhattan and low-lying neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Staten Island.
The sea would rush over the West Side Highway and the FDR Drive, taking cars with it. Hundreds, maybe thousands, of New Yorkers would drown in subway tunnels.

In Queens, Kennedy and LaGuardia airports would be under water.

Imagine a HUGE wall of water, bigger than last week's killer tsunami, racing across the Atlantic Ocean at jetliner speed, straight for New York.


Economic losses would be measured in the trillions.

That's what could happen if, as some scientists fear, a fragile volcano known as Cumbre Vieja, a world away from New York in the Canary Islands, splits apart and crashes into the ocean.

The volcano cracked severely in 1949 and is continuing to weaken, according to Steven Ward, a professor of theoretical seismology and geophysics at the University of California at Santa Cruz. "Cumbre Vieja is about 98% through its cycle" before it collapses, Ward said.

Ward and other experts admit there is no telling when this might happen.

"It is unlikely ... that the collapse is imminent," marine geologist Simon Day, of the Benfield Hazard Research Centre at University College in London, wrote recently. "There will be plenty of short-term indications that a collapse may be about to occur."

But, he and other experts agree, it is only a matter of time.

If the volcano erupts, Ward explained, the magma will heat water trapped inside. As the water expands, it will push off the unstable part of the volcano.

"It could be a piece of rock as large as 100 New York City blocks and a mile high," Ward said, outlining a worst-case scenario.

Billions of tons of falling rock would hit the water at more than 200 mph. The energy released by the collapse would be equal to the electricity consumption of the entire U.S. for six months, according to one estimate.

A dome of water 1,000 feet high and tens of miles wide would form, collapse and rebound. As the landslide continued to move underwater, wave crests and troughs would fuel the ocean's relentless onslaught.

"It will diminish in size as it moves forward," Ward told the Daily News. "But even if it loses 90% of its height it would still be huge. An 8-meter [26-foot] wave would be devastating."

I think its important for us to note that this process at CUMBRE VIEJA is 98% complete according to the scientists who are studying it, so as the TEMPTATIONS might say, GET READY! Also, coming from the Canary Islands, there is the AFRiCAN ANCESTRAL CONNECTION, hmmm...

PEACE!

This is a startling article. I have family in Queens though I've never lived in NY. I was born in DC.

They've been talking about getting out of NY. I hope they hurry up and do it. This thing sounds like it could wipe out the entire Eastern seaboard.

Between California falling into the Pacific and the east coast being swallowed by the Atlantic looks like we will all be squeezed into the midwest

It's amazing how white people just won't come out and tell you something that they know. To the wise, they was giving us BIG TIME HINTS WHEN THEY MADE THAT MOVIE; "THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW". The point is that they know and that ONLY THE WISE ARE GOING TO PAY HEED TO IT.

Brother Keita, no doubt, and that is why I was so upset with African people in New Orleans... Like the elder rescued on Friday, lotta folks thought the reports about a category 5 hurricane destroying NOLA was just another in a long line of woof tickets sold by the meteorologists, and stayed home waiting out the storm... Even Fats Domino was reported to have said that's why he was trapped in his home when the floods came...

Well, I remember one day here in the city where we don't get hurricanes, but the wind was gusting at about 30-35 miles an hour... As I was walking to work, that 30-mph wind sucked a whole pane of glass out of a window, and sent it flying like a deadly frisbee at my head... It came outta nowhere! Further up the tree-lined street I could see this little tiny wind making thick old maples rock back and forth like it was nothing....

When I heard that winds upwards of 5 times stronger were heading for New Orleans, I thought instantly about NOLA's population, and her importance to African American culture, and said a meditation for her deliverance... Katrina passed by, but the Levee broke, and caught us "sleeping..." The wakeup call is for the living... I only hope we're paying attention...

Peace!

You've raised an important point brotha Isaiah. It wasn't the ancestor driven hurricane that destroyed New Orleans. It was the levee which they knew was a calamity waiting to happen.

It may be that the media just used the hurricane to cover up what was totally due to humane negligence if not malice.

Greetings All,

As painful as this may seem, I am a follower of my West African ancestral beliefs and many I'm sure heard of both Iya(s) Yemonja and Oya. One elder (a rootworker w/ no direct Yoruba or other spiritual ties) right before the storm hit said the spirit emanating from Katrina was that of a Black woman. Many traditional practitioners with a Bantu affiliation believe our ancestors are connected with water and as such, the Atlantic of the Middle Passage suffices as a domain for our folks. Of course, meterologists can explain hurricanes very poignantly with scientific terminology and I do not dismiss the official rendering, but I personally believe, in addition, there's a spirit for everything - including jail.

What's Happening, Sister River...

Yes, that was the report, as I recall, that Mama Katrina was all set to spank some behind, and then she thought the better of it, and blew on through Biloxi and Gulfport(smile!) Which now actually may give some credence to what the writer and yourself have proposed, because most of those impacted in Da Magnolia were White Folks, to my knowledge...

I just did a post on Remembering this event, and not letting drift from our memories as we've done in the past... This was our wake up, and it is meant that we stay awoke... Remember the song, it wont be water, but FIRE NEXT TIME???

Finally, I BELIEVE now more than ever that those LEVEES were tampered with - period... MY "spider senses" just keep telling me so, ya know??? Time will tell, as Malcolm usta say...

Peace!
Isaiah

I wonder if that might not be prophetic. Again they are trying to build their economy on our misery. And again they have left the spirits of those they murdered in the wake of their activities. Of course they will fortify the levee and build fflood protection. So maybe it will have to be the fire next time.

That's the thing about our white enemies--as devious and all powerful as they may seem they weave their destruction into their own plans.

More power to the ancestors!

Experts say Louisiana levees should have held: Post Wed Sep 21,12:51 AM ET



WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Hurricane experts said Hurricane Katrina's storm surges were smaller than authorities have suggested and that poor design, faulty construction or a combination of the two were to blame for the failure of New Orleans' flood-protection system, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday.

Scientists and engineers at Louisiana State University's Hurricane Center -- with the help of computer models and visual evidence -- concluded the levee system should have been sufficient to keep most of the city dry.

They also said Katrina's storm surges did not come close to going over the floodwalls, contradicting statements from the Army Corps of Engineers, which has said the surges sent water from Lake Pontchartrain over the top of the concrete walls.

"This should not have been a big deal for these floodwalls," said oceanographer G. Paul Kemp, a hurricane expert who runs LSU's Natural Systems Modeling Laboratory. "It should have been a modest challenge. There's no way this should have exceeded the capacity."

Ivor van Heerden, the Hurricane Center's deputy director, said the real scandal of Katrina is the "catastrophic structural failure" of barriers that should have handled the hurricane with relative ease.

"We are absolutely convinced that those floodwalls were never overtopped," the newspaper quoted van Heerden saying.

The Post said the center's researchers said it is too early to say whether the breaches were caused by poor design, faulty construction or some combination. But van Heerden said the floodwalls at issue -- massive concrete slabs mounted on steel sheet pilings -- looked similar to the sound barriers found on major highways, the Post said.

Corps spokesman Paul Johnston told the Post the agency believes storm surges sent water flowing over the floodwalls and undermined the earthen levees they sat upon, creating the breaches. Johnston said the Corps would investigate to ensure that scenario is correct.

The Corps has said that Katrina, a Category 4 storm, was too massive for a levee system not intended to protect the city from a storm greater than a Category 3 hurricane.

The U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers has been so historically corrupt that the infamous Jewish accountant for the Italian Mafia Meyer Lansky used it's command structure as his business model for The National Crime Syndicate which eventually held global power and influence. It was so insidious and purposely convoluted even the IRS couldn't decode his books. If the USACOE says it's a sunny day, the Senate Oversight Committees and other Government watchdogs reach for their umbrellas. The NOLA Levees were not tampered with, like levees and other types of construction projects under their control all over America were constructed by incompetent men without conscience using outdated construction techniques with inferior materials that didn't meet national codes and standards approved by well paid corrupt inspectors who for the most part never even knew where the sites they approved actually were. Hurricane Katrina's tragic aftermath was due to a vast number of inept, racist, greedy, corruptible and fraudulent reasons and the USACOE played a huge part, before, during and long after the resultant and senseless deaths were no longer front page news.

For those who know nothing of this true combined Military/Industrial Complex under the guise of a legal "for profit" Federalized Military Component.
