Are We Breaking Away - The Great Crack

Bathymetric studies around the Hawaiian Islands identify numerous giant submarine landslides from the islands. The south flank block is identified as a possible future landslide that could generate a large tsunami, but these phenomena occur so infrequently (perhaps once every few tens of thousands of years) that we should not lose any sleep over it ever happening. We will have ample warning before it goes.

Uh huh.
