Apr 15, 2009 02:00 PM Tsunami in Ustka?

Tsunami in Ustka? Yesterday, in the port and on the beach in Ustka, on the Baltic coast of Poland, a lot of people waited for a 20-meter tall wave. A local newspaper published an article that a tsunami was going to hit Ustka. Two visionary ladies from Łódź, central Poland, notified authorities of the coastal towns between Świnoujście and Ustka of the threat. Most officials adopted a mockery of this information. However, scientists have taken it seriously and explained that the seabed of the Baltic hides methane gas in its solid state and an explosion of it (triggered by an earthquake for example) can indeed cause tsunamis. Such a case occurred several times, the most written about occurrence took place in 1497. The coastal village of Darłówek was completely destroyed by a massive wave. Other known tsunamis that hit the Polish coast happened in the 18th century.
On 16 December 2008, the earthquake in Ystad, Sweden was felt all the way across the sea in Poland. However the quake did not trigger a tsunami. Yesterday, people waited in vain for the big wave. It is a curious case. From one point of view, people treated the visions with a pinch of salt or a lot of salt, in fact, and ignored the warning. From the other, they did act somewhat irresponsibly. Tsunamis usually mean awful tragedies to the places they hit, killing people and leaving masses homeless. If the tsunami did hit, they would almost certainly be killed.

Finally, a white winter in Ustka. Krys, Fred and Tony, I envy you the snow in your town. During the night a lot of snow fell. However, there is no frost and snow will not remain long. I did a photos, will be the proof that it was a white winter in 2009 in Ustka.
