Devastating tsunami will hit southern Spain , experts warn
A NEW documentary film has claimed it is only a matter of time before a devastating tsunami will hit Spain and Portugal.
The film, La Gran Ola, warns that the mammoth wave will strike the Gulf of Cadiz and wreak havoc on the coast of Huelva and Cadiz, and could kill more than 1,200 people.
There is no pinpoint date for the event, but experts say alarm systems should be put in place to prevent deaths.
