As mentioned in the last similar post, Cyprus has already been hit by a number of tsunami's before, true .. nothing like what we saw in Asia. Cyprus lies close to the boundary between the Arabic/African and Eurasian plates, and an earthquake of high enough scale may well cause a similar scenario as in Asia, who knows :? Past tsunamis in Cyprus haven't been known to be as huge as the Asian tsunami, however Cyprus has seen some very powerful earthquakes before.

Yes, there is a possibility. However, the probability is apparently low.

If you go to the NASA website, it has loads of information. Basically where ever there is an eartquake there is a possibility of a tsunami. So if it happens to be big enough and usually abouve 9 on the scale it can happen or affect any costal area.

You can also search the most recent earthquakes, if I can remember rightly the last earthquake for Cyprus was on 13 December 2004. It is interesting and well worth a look, especially the ariel view of the earth.
