#6 The covenant made with Noah stipulated that the WORLD would not be destroyed again by a flood of waters. Floods upon deserving localties are not covered.
Speculation: Psalm 46 poetically describes a tsunami from an earthquake that caused mountains to slide into the ocean. The Israelites were spared because they lived in the high-lands, but it took out an invasion force being assembled along the coast, either in Egypt or Philistia, for the purpose of attacking Israel. The destruction was so great that chariots were burned to keep the survivors warm, and the only fresh water available was in the Israeli highlands.
The covenant doesn't cover tsunamis either.

#7 I'm not a scholarly sort, but the deducible on this covenant seems kinda high.
