    No tsunami warning because there wasn't an earthquake. Not sure how you design a tsunami warning system for volcanic landslides.

    Ever since Vesuvius erupted in AD 79 and Pompeii was destroyed firstly by earthquake and then by volcanic ash; there is a known connection. The low lying land areas should have been evacuated.

    In fact tsunamis caused by volcanoes were known about in ancient Greece
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    Don't even know where to start with that appallingly ill informed interpretation of what's happened.

    Thankfully, no ancient Greeks were harmed this time.
