Spain And Portugal Are Unprepared For A 'Violent Tsunami' Set To Strike Any Day

According to a team of 40 scientists, a tsunami is set to hit the coasts of Portugal and Spain and they're fearful neither government is prepared.

In the documentary ‘La gran ola’ (the big wave), more than forty scientists raise alarm bells by saying that it’s only a matter of time before a huge tsunami strikes the Iberian Peninsula.

A problem that’s already happening

According to reports, the Gulf of Cadiz is the most likely to be struck by this famous tsunami, but it is also completely unprepared for a disaster of this magnitude. This type of phenomenon already happened in 1755, when a gigantic tsunami hit Lisbon, causing between 50,000 and 70,000 casualties.

According to scientists, this catastrophe is inevitable, and they are worried about how unprepared the government is to deal with such an issue. “Governments aren’t doing anything, what needs to be done has already been written in black and white, politicians are aware of this seismic risk. We can reduce it”, says Mario Lopes, a Portuguese scientist.
