Mega-tsunami DOOM: Tidal wave terror at Brit hols resort 'to spark apocalypse' TOMORROW



A MILE-HIGH tidal wave could wipe out Britain, Spain and the US tomorrow, a chilling prediction suggests.

Panic has erupted over fears a Canary Islands volcano could blow and spark a monster tsunami – after it suffered 50 earthquakes in just three days.

La Palma, near the tourist hotspot of Tenerife, has been rocked by dozens of low magnitude tremors in recent days.

The quakes have sparked fears the islands’ huge Cumbre Vieja volcano could blow – and volcano experts have been pulled in to examine the unusual seismic activity.

Scientists have previously warned if the huge volcano erupts, it will collapse into the sea – sparking a mile-high tidal wave that would engulf Spain, Britain and the east coast of the US.

The dormant volcano has never experienced a similar swarm of quakes.

Terrifyingly, this appears to match a prophecy about the end of the world made exactly 100 years ago tomorrow.

Catholics worldwide are preparing to mark the centenary of the Miracle of the Sun tomorrow.

On October 13, 1917, up to 100,000 people supposedly witnessed extraordinary solar activity – such as the sun appearing to "dance" or zig-zag in the sky, careen towards the earth, and emit multicoloured light and radiant colours in Fatima, Portugal.

The mysterious and inexplicable event – which was reported by newspapers across the world at the time – had been predicted by three young shepherd girls, who claimed to have seen visions of the Virgin Mary at that spot all summer.

One of them, who would become known as Sister Lucia of Fatima, is said to have also correctly predicted World War 2 and the 1981 assassination attempt on John Paul II through the visions.

The Vatican has endorsed Sister Fatima’s visions – and is in the process of making her a Catholic saint.

But she also saw a vision of a massive earthquake and the “sea overflowing”.

In his book Unveiling the Apocalypse, Emmett O’Regan claims Sister Lucia foresaw a volcano in the Canary Islands erupt and then collapse into the sea – causing the massive tidal wave.

He said this matches the Cumbre Vieja volcano – and the apocalyptic tidal wave scientists have warned could happen at any moment.

Now many Catholics think this could happen tomorrow.

He told Daily Star Online: “A lot of Catholics expect that the Miracle of the Sun on October 13, 1917, announced some form of major chastisement that is to befall the earth, many of whom believe will come exactly 100 years to the day.”

Sister Lucia made a series of predictions called the Three Secrets after her and two of her cousins saw visions of the Virgin Mary six times in 1917.

Sister Lucia wrote down the three messages Mary gave her. The first two, which she wrote in her 1941 autobiography, described hell and predicted WW2.

She was reluctant to publish the Third Secret and would only write it down in 1944 – giving it the Pope and saying it could only be opened in 1960 or upon her death, whichever came first – after a direct order from a bishop.

Bizarrely, the Vatican refused to release the Third Secret in 1960 – sparking wild theories the vision warned of the apocalypse.

Comments by top church officials only added to this.

In 1984, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger – later Pope Benedict XVI – admitted he had read the secret and said it involved the "importance of the End of Days” and “dangers threatening…[the life] of the world”.

In 1980, Pope John Paul II, who had also read the secret, said of it: “If there is a message in which it is said that the oceans will flood entire sections of the Earth – that, from one moment to the other, millions of people will perish...there is no longer any point in really wanting to publish this secret message.”

If Cumbre Vieja falls into the sea, it would cause a wave between 650 and 1,500 metres high, according to research by the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at the University of California and the Benfield Greig Hazard Research Centre at University College, London.

The tsunami would race across the Atlantic and hit the US east coast.

By the time it reached New York it would be twice as high as the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, which killed 250,000 people around the Indian Ocean.

The volcano slipped closer to the ocean after an eruption in 1949 and again in 2001 – and now hangs by a thread.

It has suffered more than 50 quakes between 1.5 and 2.7 on the Richter scale this week.

A scientific team of five are heading to La Palma to keep track of the tremors in situ.
