Methane explosion/tsunami mega-disaster

Time to reconsider Florida real estate (via Gates of Vienna).

While the entire Gulf coastline is vulnerable, the state most exposed to the fury of a supersonic wave towering 150 to 200 feet or more is Florida. The Sunshine State only averages about 100 feet above sea level with much of the coastline and lowlands and swamps near zero elevation.

This is why the city resisted the expansion of Taco Bell outlets for so long.
