Prehistoric Megastorms - Mega Tsunami

Today on Far Future Horizons we present Prehistoric Megastorms - Mega Tsunami.

In 6,000 BC, 8,000 years before the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, a paleo tsunami whose waves reach taller than the Statue of Liberty allegedly was generated by a landslide from Mount Etna and ravaged the coasts of the Mediterranean, devastating ancient villages and killing untold numbers.

A team of scientists pieces together evidence of this mega tsunami and reveals the face of this ancient tsunami for the first time. 3-D computer generated animation recreates the massive waves that may have changed the course of history.

From prehistoric times these mega tsunami have changed the geographical structure of our earth. Could this happen again today in our modern world? If so, how could we prepare for such a disaster?

Science takes a good hard look and explores the possibilities and the repercussions of how it could affect our world and all living things on this planet if something of this magnitude were to occur today.

This and other episodes of the History Channel’s acclaimed documentary series, Prehistoric Megastorms can be purchased from and the History Channel’s online store.
