If such waves hit either the east or west coast of the U.S., how far
inland would the destruction be? One mile? Ten miles? How much
shoreline (ie length) would be affected?

For example, say the wave were to hit Coney Island in Brooklyn NY,
how much of Brooklyn would've been destroyed?

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: There was an interesting article in
Yahoo News earlier today discussing this very topic. It appears there
is an area fifty or a hundred miles in the Pacific Ocean roughly off
the coast of San Jose/San Francisco which is very earthquake prone
according to siesmologists. I guess it is just a matter of time. You
may have also seen in the news that hungry crockodiles got washed
ashore in the Indonesia area this week, and although the little guys
do not go out of their way to attack/eat humans, they certainly will
do so when they get aggravated/agitated enough to do so. PAT]
