This is scary stuff. If there is a volcanic eruption then that dodgy rock, wotsitsname, might just slip into the sea and cause a Tsunami across the Atlantic.




More than 8,000 tremors have been recorded on island in the last two months


This feeds into the belief that volcanic activity on La Palma - the most tectonically active of the Canary Islands - could trigger a mega-tsunami.


The theory - which has never been confirmed - claims that a possible fault line through the island would cause a major landslide under certain circumstances.

That landslide would then spark a tsunami that would cause extensive damage all down the Atlantic Coast of the U.S., the Caribbean, Western Europe, West Africa and the east coast of South America

I see this involves the island of El Hierro, and not La Palma. However, El Hierro is just south of La Palma so the results would likely be the same.

Chances are it's just your normal movement. However, if there really is something brewing there then something really bad could happen.

Guess it's always something. Time will tell.

I mean yea its possible.. but really what isnt? If you look here: www.emsc-csem.org... you can see that you may be right, pleanty of activity in the Canary Island region. But, I give it a slim chance for anytime soon.

psssst...I think it's the Atlantic, not the Pacific...But hey that's just me.

This one has been rearing it's ugly head quite a bit lately, wonder why I'm seeing so many posts about it

Hmm, all of a sudden the East isnt laughing at the West about the inevitable "Big One"

Theres looks just as bad, Probably triggerable by the same event.
