El Hierro has experienced the biggest quake since the crisis started in July 2011. A magnitude 4.3 has taken place on Saturday at about 8.34 pm (UTC) SW of El Pinar, at a depth of 13 km.

IGN

The quake has widely been reported by the inhabitants of the island, specially in Valverde.

Although the IGN has reported a depth of 13 km., the EMSC has informed about a depth of 10 km.

EMSC

Not only this is the biggest quake they had since July 17, 2011, but if it is true that the depth is less than the one reported by the IGN, this could mean that the magma continues rising... Certainly not a good news.

Something more to worry about.

This disaster will be the worst in Human history, perhaps 100 million dead, most of them trapped in gridlock with a car full of crap that they grabbed from their homes that they never really needed in the first place. I just wonder how the new administration (Most likely operating from their giant swastika underneath the Denver airport) will spin it.

While I was typing this out, I noticed a misspelling, I mistakenly spelled administration, instead spelling it administraction, as if it were not a real meaningful government, but just a distraction, a rope-a-dope to keep people busy with the right/left paradigm so they won't be able to wake up to the truth.

Now I'm wondering if that wasn't one of those micro-prophecies that Clif High is always talking about. If it is, here it is, repeated in context for the web-bots to catch and do with what they will.

Lol I so agree and I miss Elenin and end of days, catastrophe and fear mongering!
Let the East Coast ending Volcano watch begin!

That was inappropriately funny.

ps El Hierro isnt the one that will cause the volcano to go into the sea and create a huge tsumani, is it? I really hope not.

Tsunami is on it's way.



Look at that, I'll be able to finally take a bath since I can't pay the electric bill.



Yeah, but most on here say 4.5 is nothing. When it reaches 7-9 then it's time to worry.

El Hierro isnt the volcano that was predicted to cause the mega tsunami for the US, that would be the Cumbre Vieja on the island of La Palma.



Tsunami scenarios In a BBC Horizon programme broadcast on October 12, 2000, two geologists (Day and McGuire) cited this rift as proof that half of the Cumbre Vieja had slipped towards the Atlantic Ocean (Day et al., 1999; Ward and Day, 2001). They suggested that this process was driven by the pressure caused by the rising magma heating water trapped within the structure of the island. They hypothesised that during a future eruption, the western flank of the Cumbre Vieja, with a mass of approximately 1.5 x1015 kg, could slide into the ocean. This could then potentially generate a giant wave which they termed a "megatsunami" around 650–900 m high in the region of the islands. The wave would radiate out across the Atlantic and inundate the eastern seaboard of North America including the American, the Caribbean and northern coasts of South America some six to eight hours later. They estimate that the tsunami will have waves possibly 160 ft (49 m) or more high causing massive devastation along the coastlines. Modelling suggests that the tsunami could inundate up to 25 km (16 mi) inland - depending upon topography. The basis for Ward and Day (1999) modelling the collapse of a much larger portion of the western flank than the currently visible surface fissures suggest is unstable, was based on geological mapping by Day et al. 1999. In this paper they argue that a large part of the western flank has been constructed in the scar of a previous collapse and therefore sits upon unstable debris.


From WikiPedia

That said, there are no guarantees that a volacnic eruption would not cause a tsunami or perhaps even trigger an eruption of La Palma, but I would think that likelyhood of that happening is VERY small.

Living on Long Island.. the whole volcanic eruption and landslide into the ocean causing a mega-tsunami really freaks me out. We would be completely screwed and never get off the island in time to try to get more in-land!

Cheers, i thought so. I remember that horizon documentary, quite scary stuff. (well it was to me)

No it is not. That is Cumbre Veija, and even that won't cause a tsunami on the East Coast of Murka.

Oops should have read further. Sorry.

By the way those two 'geologists' modelled this by dropping rocks into a closed tank. Not exactly a good model of the Atlantic!

While I dont think we have to worry about a tsunami at all, and I did read that article in another thread (cant remember which or posted by whom, was it phage?), I also saw this which is pretty recent and was wondering what if anyone had any more scientific imput:

Crap!

I have a time share in Tenerife, should I worry??

This is extremely concerning. I've been watching the tremors for the past week. Really bad news for pretty much the entire Florida peninsula. The wave would arrive in 6-8 hours should a landslide occur.

We’ve been closely watching the earthquake swarm at the Canary Island’s El Hierro since the middle of the summer and it looks like there has been a dramatic increase in the number and intensity of the seismicity at the volcano. Since mid-July, the small island, which is the top of a shield volcano built by the Canary Hotspot, has registered over 8,000 earthquakes

I actually believe the stuff that you say puter, was that horizon documentary over elaborate then? if a piece of the island did fall into the sea, would it not cause the mega tsuami they suggested?

I know its a bad word around here, but wiki doesnt think so, in regards to a doom and gloom tsunami:

Detailed analysis of these deposits suggests that the slope failure did not occur as a single event but a series of smaller failures over a period of hours or days. Local tsunami are likely to have been triggered by these landslides but no evidence has been found to confirm this.[12]

en.wikipedia.org...-Masson_2002-11

I think it is going to erupt, but I do not think Florida has to worry

I think lasertaglover has answered


No tsunami, no doom. Oh dear. Maybe a little teensy weensy one a metre or so just to keep Florida happy?

I know the good Doctor's page is a long read but the relevant part is this


The upper limit of his modeling study shows that the east coast of the U.S. and the Caribbean would receive waves less than 3 meters high. The European and African coasts would have waves less than 10 meters high. However, full Navier-Stokes modeling of the same La Palma failure, brings the maximum expected tsunami wave amplitude off the U.S. east coast to about one meter.

Here's a photo of what would happen if La Palma had a landslide. I recently heard Stan Deyo, on C2C, talking about the thousands of earthquakes on Hierro and possible tsunami triggered by a landslide on La Palma. This is my first post with an image. Hope it works.

Still got ET_Mans thread 'Warning from the Benevolents'

Event is meant to take place Oct 11 and includes and interdimensional Nibiru crossing into our dimension.

Woot woot for doom and gloom.

Here's the video showing what to expect from the Mega Tsunami that would follow an eruption - check it out to stay safe!!!

Apparently it's meant to happen within One Week.
