Last week, a false tsunami alarm sparked a wave of alarm interest for people heading to school and work.
After the event, our KRIS 6 News Fact Check team looked into if the Coastal Bend could ever face a real tsunami threat?
So our team asked the National Weather Service about that, and they say…. it’s a fact.
We could face a tsunami threat.
The National Weather Service says there have been three significant tsunami’s in the Gulf of Mexico in the past ten thousand years.
One produced a 15-foot wave which the national weather service says would have been very destructive.
