17/10/2011 @ 17:25 – Canarian government maintains ‘level 1′ emergency status for the area of La Restinga on El Hierro as the underwater eruption causes magma flow to reach near the coast if the island. This ‘emergency level’ includes an exclusion for all air traffic within a radius of 5 miles and sea traffic within a radius of 4 miles.

And the latest.
Reports of stream vapours upto 100m above the sea surface of El Hierro & geyser type effects suggest eruption is now close to sea surface.

Ok, So far there have been 11 earthquakes in the Canary Islands today registering over 1.5 on the Richter scale.
The strong sulphur smell and the change in the direction of the tide has delayed the residents of La Restinga returning to their homes. The El Roquillo tunnel opening will go ahead as planned.

Hi TZ,
I think the tunnel is only going to be opened for restricted time and for
"- Another decision which has been taken was the reopening of the Los Roquillos tunnel from 08:00 until 20:00 (8 AM until 8 PM) but only for emergency vehicles, trucks of more than 3,500 kilos and transport of dangerous goods"

OT...but isn't Etna running a bit late?

This is getting very worriesome.
Thank you for keeping us updated, it is very difficult for us 'learners' to understand these charts.

excellent vids Dalke70, definitely an eruption this time, no doubt about it with that pumice floating (some of it still steaming) on the water and the bubbling sea

Hard to tell from the helicopter position how far it is from La Restinga.
I put the co-ordinates of the Mag 1.1 quake today that had 0km depth which may have been the eruption happening ona composite map, its quite a few km NW of where the two 0km depth quakes were on the 9th when there was a disturbance on the graphs.
Does this match up with the coastline landscape in the vid?

Red markers are 0km events
White markers are the 17th events
Aqua marker events of the 9th



edit: just watched the vid again a few times, seems to be closer to La Restinga than the marker on the map, maybe it wan't it then.

There are no events in IGN data list that match up with the vid location.

Latest info from canariesnews
18/10/2011 @ 08:50 – The continuous tremors detected on the island of El Hierro seem to have decreased in intensity,
OT and yes, Etna is having a little snooze hoping we won't notice when she has the next episode.

Over at Eruptions (now moved to Wired.com) they seem to be thinking Etna tomorrow/48 hours....this could be a busy few days for you TZ!
Also I have just posted this on the EQ link....any thoughts?
OK...El Hierro activity seems to be reducing, but could someone tell me if I am right saying that there seems to be increased activity ALL OVER the Canaries generally?
Here is a link to seismo charts for the region all neatly put on one page.

Yes, I agree about the activity but I am not an El Hierro expert, this is a new one for me. Canaries News just tweet me when something happens. Today there have been 3 earthquakes registered around the island of El Hierro, all measuring over 2 degrees on the Richter scale. Strangley wonderful to watch a possible new island being born.
As for Etna, they could be spot on if they are looking at the same signs as me. Yesterday showed all the signs that in 2 days she could go again. Had nothing today yet.

What's the weather like over the Canaries? PuterMan seems to think storms are the cause of the seismic readings in the Canaries.

This could cause storms.
The Meteorological Agency (AEMET) has raised to yellow the alert for high temperatures expected tomorrow, Tuesday 11th October 2011 for temperatures over 36 degrees Celsius in the Canary Islands. The alert will remain active between 10.00 and 19.00, will mainly affect mountainous areas. Temperatures of up to 36 degrees will affect the islands of Gran Canaria (high areas, east, south and west coasts) and Tenerife (La Orotava and Vilaflor, east, south and west coasts), while 34 degrees is expected in Gran Canaria (north), Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, La Palma (west) and Tenerife (north coast).

Some new update ..

Last 48 hours some stronger earthquake activity, pressure still going to north of El Hierro ..

www.ign.es...

www.01.ign.es...



The major risk in the current eruption cycle of El Hierro is the risk that new eruption vent is going to open up nearby a human population without warning. But El Hierro has a lot of cinder cones from earlier eruption cycles. That creates the risk that a new eruption vent is going to open up on dry land without warning. But it is impossible to know when and where that might happen.

Little seems to have changed in the eruption of El Hierro since my last update on it. That was on 19 October, 2011. Harmonic tremor is constant, but appears to have dropped a little in the past few days. But with the fluctuation that is often increases again before it drops down again. This means that the eruption is ongoing, but is loosing power to continue at current eruption vent. This was not unexpected. This has however not slowed down inflation in El Hierro from what I can gather on GPS data on El Hierro.



As the current eruption vents close down it seems that earthquakes have started again under El Hierro. But the earthquakes have the depth from 28 km and up to around 5 km. This strongly suggests that new magma is entering under El Hierro and is again increasing the pressure inside the El Hierro magma sill (or chamber, but note that El Hierro does not have a stable magma chamber it seems). This increases earthquakes while the magma does not have any good path up to the surface. When a new path for the magma starts to form again, a large earthquake swarm is going to take place in El Hierro. It is not going to be anything bigger then already has taken place in El Hierro already. With the largest earthquakes going up to Mb5.0 in size. That is at least my opinion.
