it is highly unlikely - there is little or no seismic activity anywhere on the continental shelf off the bight of Benin, we are lucky to be located in one of the most benign seismic regions in the world. Tsunami's are not products of global warming, but more a knock on effect of sub-sea seismic activities such as shifting tectonic plates and earthquakes. Our distance from the mid atlantic ridge implies that any such activity will be severely dampened by the time it makes landfall so the risk is very minimal. Our risks would be more in the line of flooding due to increased rainfall and poor drainage or general rise in sea levels submerging the lowest portion of the coastal regions

with the economic assets located on our coast, any such threat would likely be countered by storm breakers and channels/gates as you have in London and Amsterdam being built.

The recent floods and heat waves in Europe, the near total absence of rain and attendant forest fire outbreaks on America's west coast, and global weather records that continue to be shattered every year, are all DIRECT EFFECTS of global warming, but there is more extreme weather in store, and Lagos, being a coastal city, may not continue to fare as well as it has in the past, given the inexorable rise of sea levels worldwide.

A scenario where offshore seismic activity or unusually large storms at sea trigger a tidal wave that threatens the entire Lagos, Lekki and Epe shoreline may sound implausible because nothing of that magnitude has occurred in the past, yet such an event does in fact become more likely with each passing year of increasing global temperatures and melting polar ice-caps.

If something bad happened to me, and you happened to say that to my face. Could I use that same quote for my defence when I burst your eye sockets out of your head?

Pls note that I am not saying those who died thru natural disasters have commited any grave sins against God. I'm just sick and tired of hearing people condeming others for assuming that God punishes some people.

Besides, even if they are innocent, have u forgotten what God said in Exodus 20:5?? ..where he said, "...for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me."

i think an incident like the ikeja cantonment was sent by God to kill 5000 of the most righteous people in the most righteous country on earth? Maybe the bellview airlines killed 117 saints in Gods most beloved country?

I cant believe an inteligent creature can make a quote like this. So God sent the tsunamis to punish indonesia, india, thailand, burma, malaysia etc. God killed the 250000 innocent people? God sent the earthquakes that hit china, japan, korea and kill thousands each year? God sent katrina to punish the poor balck ones in the U.S for living in an "evil' country and city? Maybe god sent the terrorists too that bombed london to punish Britain for beign an ally 4 'evil'.

I never seem to stop beign amazed by Nigerians. From that above statement i can also infer that God sent corruption, lawlessness, political assasinations, poverty, desperation, 419, witchcrafting etc to reward Nigerians for beign the most righteous set of people on earth?. I think now i understand

bulls**t. Its this kind of mentallity that will never allow you to be prepared and ensure even the minimum form of planning in case of eventuality. Its this prayer/God attitude that is killing Nigeria. Someone has said it on this forum that rather than do something about their circumstance, Nigerians will keep on praying, just the way God? answered Alameyeseigha's prayer by teleporting him from London to Nigeria.

Katrina or rita will never occur in Nigeria because i think it's more of a spiritual thing and though we might not have the infrastructures on ground because of our govts insensitivity, we have God with us.

Katrina was a punishment on america for evacuating the jews from the promise land which God gave them thereby making americans evacuate their own homes. In the same vein, God choose new orleans in particular as an example because of their great sins in the sight of God.

Everyday the Bar Beach is inching in closer and closer to the main road and might soon flood into the residential areas near it.

This is only noticed whe the rains come..nothing is being done about it during the dry season. The sandbags that have been piled to prevent this have proved useless. I even hear an Israeli company has been awarded the contract to rectiy the almost gone situation. I hope it's true and not just a propaganda.God help us!

Truth is Nigeria is just livin under GOD's supernatural mercy/grace.

Ikeja Bomb blast claimed the lives of over 5,000 people. Imagine us killin our selves with our bombs. Nobody dey fight us. Funny but sad.

The country is so loose. Nothing seems to be working.

Emergency sector- zero - its when u call them for an emergency that they know they have no fuel.

Power sector -  zero - Those ones just play with the thing like toy. They caused the burning of Metroplaza recently.

Security - minus 100 . They collect bribes at gunpoint. Infact they are uniformed armed robbers.

I can go on for ages but the point is that any natural distaster will wipe away Nigeria.

We are in the age when countries are becoming proactive but Nigeria still believes in reactin. We never have disasters doesnt mean we shouldnt prepare in case.

This is a good question.

When the third mainland bridge fall down, it won't be fun at all ooo. With all those buses on it that carry heavy loads. The rods that holds up the bridge are rotten. I will encourage Nigeria to do something about that bridge before it colapse.

And there's this beach my dad was talking about. He said, the last time the bank overflowed, it was stopped.. I hope the next time it will come, ehnnnnn. Those that live in Nigeria know what i mean. I dunno the name of the beach.
