I venture to guess a sunami along the gulf coast would be devestating and something no one is expecting or the least bit prepared for...

Fortunately the risk is very low, barring another Chicxulub-type asteroid impact (in which case we have bigger problems).

I read once that if the Chicxulub asteroid had hit in the deepest part of the Gulf instead of right by the coast, the tsunami would have been three miles high.
