Deadly tsunami’s crash in great Britain may seem far-fetched, but new research says that it is more common than experts had previously thought.

Scientists believe that three killer waves have hit the united kingdom in the last 10,000 years – the increase of the possibility that another may be the result.

We already knew about one of them: around 8,200 years ago, the Storegga submarine landslide off the coast of Norway led to a 20-meter-high tsunami that swept across the Shetland islands.

Now experts have discovered evidence of two additional tsunami that took place even more recently.
