It's what they tell us there. Not sure if that's a matter of definition, ie. the flooding of the Mediterranean is a different class of event, or if the volume was that large. Which admittedly seems unlikely by comparison. (It's hard to tell scale in the picture, but this thing is freaking *huge* - an artefact of the Missoula Flood.)

If I had access to a time machine, I'd go back and park my butt on Angel's Rest or Crown Point to watch the flood come through. Apparently the front was a 1000 foot high wall of water moving close to 100 mph.

Yeah, the sound of that must have been intense.

(This particular photo is from a series where I and some friends followed the Missoula Flood route all the way from Missoula, MT [which is on the floor of Glacial Lake Missoula] back down to the outlet of the Columbia Gorge at Portland, OR. I have paid a lot of attention to this one.)
