An amazing landslide tsunami video

Landslide tsunami video

I have absolutely no idea as to the setting or reason for this quite amazing landslide tsunami video:-



It is undoubtedly a controlled blast that has deliberately destabilised a very large section of slope.  The effectiveness of the slide in generating the tsunami is clear, as is the complex nature of the water movement thereafter – see the image below.  The speed and violence of this landslide tsunami is stunning.
