The gulfstream won't stop flowing because the Earth would have to stop spinnig for that to happen. The numbers can vary greatly for the tunnels depending on the size of them. Until I figure out the size of them I will not give any numbers yet. I'll let you do some numbers though. Estimate the tunnel opening at the surface to be 200 feet wide and 50 feet tall with the current coming out at 5 mph and see how many cubic feet of water per hour exit the tunnel. Then calculate how many MWs this can produce?
