Surface inflation reported at El Hierro volcano in the Canary Island- we may be moving towards an event
Posted on August 24, 2011 by The Extinction Protocol

August 24, 2011 – Canary Islands – Well, we’ve been wondering when we might see more signs of magma rising underneath El Hierro in the Canary Island and now we seem to have got some. Over the last month, the island/volcano has experienced thousands of earthquakes that have waxed and waned in number, but seem to be increasing over time. A GPS survey of the area effected by the earthquakes has now found deformation – namely inflation – over part of the volcano. This inflation is on the order of ~1 cm over the last 20-25 days according to the Instituto Volcanologico de Canarias. There are also slightly increased carbon dioxide and temperature (above background) at the volcano as well..........

This is NOT the volcano thought to be at risk of causing a huge Atlantic tsunami. That's a different island (La Palma), different volcano (Cumbre Vieja). There are a number of volcanoes in the Canaries. Although El Hierro has caused tsunamis in the past, there isn't currently thought to be any area of the island at risk of causing a landslide big enough to create anything more than a localized tsunami.

In other words, if you live on the island of El Hierro, this is worth being concerned about. Maybe a neighboring island too. But probably not anywhere beyond that.

Is not this the Volcanoe that caused the tsunami in the UK in the 1600's wiping out the bristol channel and surrounding areas? If so then scary indeed as now we have nuclear reactors on the esturay itself and the have proposed to build 2 more there and whats the betting the ones standing and functioning already are not tsunami proof???

Can you cite a source for that? Everything I've read said that IF the rapid flood in the Bristol channel was a tsunami, and that's up for debate, it was likely from an underwater landslide or earthquake near Ireland. I've never seen El Hierro referenced.

I think the cause of the tsunami you speak of in the 1600's was the slippage of plates out in the Atlantic ocean.....check out the ROSE website and it will give you a rough idea of where those plates ''join'' out in the Atlantic.

It was on a recent TV documentary .

But there is this going on at La Palma
“More than 1,000 calls were made to the emergency number after the quake on the south east of the island. There was no damage or injuries. The 112 emergency number on the Canary Islands received more than 1,000 calls from concerned members of the public after an earthquake in Agüimes, on the south east of Gran Canaria, on Monday afternoon. None reported any injury or damage to property however. The quake at 2.15 pm was a 3.4 magnitude on the Richter scale, with the epicentre at sea off the coast of Playa del Inglés. Its effects were also felt in Santa Brígida, Telde, La Aldea de San Nicolás and Santa Lucía de Tirajana. There was a small tremor on El Hierro earlier on Monday, where EFE notes more than 3,700 seismic movements have been detected since July 19 this year. "

El Hierro did cause a tsunami that wiped out Lisbon in Portugal (historical)
