Lake TahoeTsunami: mega-catastrophe business case!

Lake Tahoe may be one of the most beautiful and peaceful lakes in the world, but the calm blue waters lurks a monster. Three major flaws lie under the lake, and if some of them are activated large magnitude earthquakes, landslides and lake-floor, which can cause a tsunami with waves as much as 10 to 100 meters. Scientists believe that all three errors can be related to each other, deep within the earth, but it is difficult to test this theory until one becomes active. "The problem with the lack of large-they are completely resting between earthquakes," said the
