Joseph S. Maresca, Ph.D.--
When the earthquake happens beneath the ocean floor, such that the earth's plates shift vertically, the movement from one plate sliding up and another sliding down causes a rush of water that can turn into a tidal wave. The earthquake in Haiti, by contrast, was underneath the land—about a dozen miles west of Port-au-Prince—and horizontally shifting. So there was motion above ground. No tsunami occurred because the shifting was horizontal.
Scientists have been theorizing about the likelihood of an Atlantic Tsunami which would threaten the Americas. A major movement of mountains and the ocean floor in Europe might qualify, as well as a huge explosion of a major volcanic area surrounding the Canary Islands. A large enough Tsunami could change the East Coast from NYC to Buffalo, New York.
No-one really knows where the Continent of Atlantis rests. Perhaps a major Tsunami could resurrect this land masse which has been out of view for centuries. Historians have theorized that Atlantis could be as close as Cuba or in the general vicinity. All together, there are 9 known continents. That is, 7 are above ground. Then, there is Atlantis and another continent somewhere between the California Coast and Japan.
The Unmanned Compliance Monitoring Device is the subject of Patent 5, 075, 857 issued 12 -24- 1991. My patent describes earthquake monitoring by satellite with strategically placed monitoring devices on the land and sea. When I patented this earthquake design, I wanted to place these devices strategically in the USA and elsewhere to monitor the kinds of dangers we are discussing right now.
The largest earthquake since the time of Christ was in Shaanxi, China killing 800,000+ people. The largest flood or tidal wave killed nearly 4,000,000 people from China's Huang He River during Aug.1931.
