Black Swan

A terrifying day for humanity:

According to a new study, archeologists have found evidence of the largest earthquake in human history, which caused a 5000-mile-long megatsunami that devastated coastlines for a millennium, LiveScience reported. [...]

The tsunami sent car-sized boulders crashing up to 620 miles inland, according to a statement by the University of Southampton, making nearby coastlines uninhabitable for 1,000 years.

A tsunami like that today would end tens of millions of lives in a few hours. Those living in-land would suffer as well since the mental talent and the physical infrastructure of the global trade -- ships and ports -- would be gone. How does any country even prepare for such a possibility?
