Thanx for posting the study of The La Palma volcano!

If the conclusions of said study are even 50% accurate,it paints a truly chilling scenario!

Not liking this one at all.

Submarine gas emition and a possible inland eruption makes me wonder how big that caldera actually is.

Good thread +1

Santa Cruz de Tenerife


The president of the Cabildo de El Hierro, Alpidio Armas, has confirmed to Radio Onda Cero that the light Teide alert level has been raised to red.

The Canary Islands government has reported that, in the evolution of the earthquake that affected the island of El Hierro, and as a preventive measure are being taken to the displacement of the population of La Restinga to the meeting point set in the civil protection plan located on the football field, taking into account the possibility that the migration of eruptive focus approaches the coast.

The Director General of Security and Emergency will appear before the media at the facilities of El Hierro Valverde CECOI at 15:00.

Came back from the area a couple of weeks ago, wanted to visit but decided we needed to chill out instead of going on adventures.. still fingers crossed nothing happens.

Thanks for the updates

Looks like they are announcing the evacuation of La Restinga on El Hierro. Tremors are being felt on La Palma. New vents/old seem to be opening up ON LAND.

To say the conclusions are disputed would be an understatement.

It is extremely unlikely that massive collapses on the islands of La Palma, or Hawaii will occur in the foreseeable future, as postulated. The modeling studies forecasting mega tsunami generation (Ward &. Day, 2001; Ward 2001) are based on erroneous assumptions of volcanic island slope instabilities, source dimensions, speed of failure, and tsunami coupling mechanisms. Incorrect input functions led to inaccurate output estimates as to near and far field tsunami effects. Even if the collapses occur as postulated, they can only generate waves of short wavelengths and periods that will be only locally destructive. These waves can only behave as intermediate rather than as shallow water waves. Thus, the models treat incorrectly wave dispersion with distance and have overestimated greatly the far field effects. Dispersion will be significantly greater for waves of shorter periods and wavelengths that can be generated from the postulated mechanisms - even with the overstated source dimensions. The waves will rapidly decay and will not be a major threat away from the source regions.

So has this hit AP yet? Or only euro news?

hisz.rsoe.hu... RSOE isn't putting it under super volcanos, I see.

Im not so sure that link is too accurate as it doesnt have a nuclear disaster over Japan ?

Sorry Dalken.....forgot!
Update 11/10 – 14:40 UTC : Following Joke Volta, a Dutch artist living on El Hierro and talking to Earthquake-Report.com, a RED ALERT has been declared for La Restinga, the southernmost city on the island. The Yellow Alert remains for the rest of the island. The precautionary measure has been taken as the eruption might come nearer to the island (ER: it is far from sure that such an eruption will occur on the island itself). We have still NO official press report of this measure in Emergencia El Hierro. La Restinga has a population of 547 people.

IMPORTANT UPDATE 14:04 UTC : The government of the Canary Island has asked the population of the Southernmost City of La Restinga (also an important port) with an urgent call to come together on the local football field. People at the island think that the meeting is scheduled to prepare for an eventual opening of vents closer towards the island.
The authorities have called a press conference in Valverde soon to give more information about their decision. We will bring you the information as it is published. We will however not speculate on the next measure to be taken.

How can you interpret this:


The precautionary measure has been taken as the eruption might come nearer to the island (ER: it is far from sure that such an eruption will occur on the island itself).


People at the island think that the meeting is scheduled to prepare for an eventual opening of vents closer towards the island.



As meaning this:

Because where the submarine eruption is happening is on a fault line/fissure and they are worried it will open up back in land. The tremors are apparently moving along this fault/fisure towards the coast.

Oh the link before Dalke has another pop

I report what I have read at the above link which has seismologists and vulcanologists reporting commenting.

What I meant was, you said that vents "seem to be opening up ON LAND."
It seems to have been a fabrication. Was it?

Latest
11/10/2011 16:32 – The epicenter of recent seismic activity seems to be shifting toward the center of El Hierro. The National Geographic Institute expects higher intensity earthquakes, between 4 and 5 degrees, as the pressure of the lava underground searches for a point to escape.

11/10/2011 16:30 – According to the National Geographic Institute (IGN) experts, more earthquakes are expected that are likely to exceed 4 degrees on the Richter scale.

oh it did, for ages the most of the site was about Japan and there were so many quake icons you couldn't see the country at all. I don't know why it's not showing now. I haven't look at it in a few weeks.

I wonder, isn't it the Canary Islands that if one of the mountains landslides into the sea, you get a very large tsunami headed directly toward the east coast. I can't remember if that was refuted or not.

Yep,

that's them.

see posts on p.2 with research study.
