No.
It is not well known. At least among the scientists who study such things. A report in the MSM, based on a flawed study made it "well known" among the public. The problem is the study was wrong.

So what's the problem?
The problem is that the world is even today being given the impression that:
1. La Palma will slide into the ocean.
2. A La Palma landslide would cause a large Tsunami.
3. The damage caused by a La Palma Tsunami would be on the scale of the 26 December 2004 Tsunami.
4. People should buy insurance against Tsunami flood damage.
5. People should not visit La Palma or the Canary Islands.

I do recall a recent article I read or show on History,Discovery or National Geo. Can't remember. But it stated from samples of the earth layers that a Tsunami at one time reached the East Coast. If I recall, the samples were from the the St. Lawrence river in New York.
Still I do not think this is to worry about., It may have been thought to have been caused from a asteroid impact off the coast.

No mock it was to Phage not you. I was sticking up for you. But, if you don't want me too, I'll recant.

Hard to keep tack of who quotes who and says what!
So strange this thread, all it was supposed to be was a message to keep an eye and be aware.. not saying doom is imminent ! We have health and safety in work and risk assessment to change a light bulb!

If a volcano is about to erupt that has a history of causing tsunamis.. perhaps worth applying the same risk strategy!

Common sense not hysteria!

There is no history of a volcanic eruption of El Hierro causing a tsunami.

Ignore ! False statement !

There is a history of the canary islands causing tsunamis.. including El Heirro


Read all of this paper library.lanl.gov...

Sorry it's not got pictures or cartoons..


"There is evidence that large tsunamis have been generated by these Canary Island landslides. For example,
on the Bahamian Island of Eleuthera, boulders of coral limestone “as big as houses and weighing thousands of tons”
have been deposited 20 m above sea-level and as much as 500 m inland. On the other end of the Bahamas archipelago
are large sand wedges several kilometers long and up to 25 m high–probably also formed by large waves in the area.
The estimated ages of these features in the Bahamas seem to match the collapse at El Gulfo on the island of El Hierro
in the Canary Islands. (McGuire, 1999) Tsunamis capable of leaving such artifacts in the Bahamas would doubtless
cause much devastation in the Caribbean and also along the East Coast of the United States"""

Your quote (you should learn how to do it properly) is speaking of landslides, not volcanic eruptions. It is also wrong.
Since you insist on reposting, I will do the same.
McGuire was wrong. The boulders and "sand wedges" are the result of storm waves, not tsunami.

In the Bahamas, the SW–NE orientation of the chevron ridges and runup deposits, and the restricted wave access to the megaboulder deposits of northern Eleuthera (Hearty, 1997) favor formation from long-period waves generated from a distant northeastern source. The orientation of these features at the Bahamas and Bermuda points to a very large and extremely energetic and weather systems in the North Atlantic Ocean at this critical time of abrupt climate change.

Nobody wants doom, don't be so daft! It's genuine concern.. hopefully unnecessary but that's all it's about..
Our governments won't be there for us so it is down to us..

I get out in the sunshine often enough, though my skin is the worse for it. I like fishing and doing this:

there has been tsunami caused by landslides. The 1,720-foot (520 m) wave runup at the head of Lituya Bay and the subsequent large wave along the main body of the bay were caused primarily by an enormous subaerial rockfall into Gilbert Inlet at the head of Lituya Bay, triggered by dynamic earthquake ground motions.

I hve to agree that if that volcano goes it won't do anything to the eastcoast the energy will spread to thin for a wall of water to reach any signifigant hieght but there is no telling what will happen when it errupts only time will tell

There is no history of a volcanic eruption of El Hierro causing a tsunami.


I think the answer to that question would be more accurate if you had added the following single qualifying term.


There is no history of a volcanic eruption of El Hierro causing a tsunami YET!




Could an event like this happen?


Could a magma intrusion and or actual volcanic eruption, cause an earthquake that could deposit HALF the island into the Atlantic Ocean?


It has happened eslewhere before and since you brought up shield volcanoes and Hawaii [wiki] ...

Molokai [wiki]


Molokaʻi is built from two distinct shield volcanoes known as East Molokaʻi and the much smaller West Molokaʻi. The highest point is Kamakou on East Molokaʻi, at 4,970 feet (1,510 m). East Molokaʻi volcano, like the Koʻolau Range on Oʻahu, is today only what remains standing of the southern half of the original mountain. The northern half suffered a catastrophic collapse about 1.5 million years ago and now lies as a debris field scattered northward across the Pacific Ocean bottom, while what remains on the island are the highest sea cliffs in the world. Views of these sea cliffs are presented in the movie Jurassic Park III. The south shore of Molokaʻi boasts the longest fringing reef in the U.S. and its holdings—nearly 25 miles (40 km) long.


Now how big was that?


It was HUGE!!!







Chunks of the Island ended up over 100km away!


Personal Disclosure: Just becuase it hasn't happened before does NOT mean that it can not happen!


Care to confirm or refute?

Personally, i don't think we have to fear a big eruption from el Hierro.
The people who live in the Canary Islands fear more for an eruption of Teide and Cumbre Vieja.

If anyone has an Iphone then you can download a free App, doesn't cost nought and it informs you of all earthquakes as they happen, its pretty cool, I would turn your phone to silent though cos it woke me up at 5am today lol. I reckon I'm allowed to name it cos it's free but Mods please delete if this is not allowed.

It's called Quakes - Earthquake Notifications. Pretty obscure name isn't it
