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..........

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???
