What if we have an earthquake but it does not occur on land, it occurs in the Atlantic Ocean. There is a tsunami coming right up the Chesapeake Bay. Tsunamis have been reported in the Atlantic Ocean, fortunately for us we have not been affected by one of these tsunami’s… yet. Anything IS possible. If there have been tsunamis reported in the Atlantic it sure is possible those tidal waves could work their way up the bay and create massive havoc. What if the was an earthquake just in the bay, it didn’t even come from the Atlantic. There is no such thing as tsunami insurance, but there is flood insurance which we have been stressing to you.

Do you remember the tsunami back in 2004 in the Indian Ocean which was one of the deadliest natural disasters in human history? The tsunami killed 230,000 people from 14 neighboring countries along the Indian Ocean. And then how about the one that hit Japan? They are still dealing with the aftermath from this devastating natural disaster. Those nuclear reactors that were damaged are still causing major concerns and panic in Japan. What if it that were to happen here? If it happened there, it could just as easily happen here.
