All eyes have been on El Hierro recently. Now things have been hotting up with recent plots showing marked increase in activity.

Erik Klemetti has just reported the following on his Wired Eruptions blog:


Very brief update, but there is news from El Mundo in Spain that there might be a new submarine eruption going on 7 km off the coast of El Hierro in the Canary Islands in 1200-2000 meters (reports are unclear) behind the ocean surface after months of increasing seismicity at the island.

Worth watching!

More coming in now from various sources:

Translation from AVCAN Facebook page who are monitoring the activity: www.facebook.com...



Where is occurring possible submarine eruption? By far not been made ​​public, but the path followed by the seismicity averaged per day, weighted by the energy released in recent days, is as follows: The last item in red for the day and according to Google Earth is just about 400 m depth on the rift or underwater chain of volcanoes south of El Hierro to about 2.8. Km away from the nearest coast. Do not confuse the averaged seismic point of the day in place of the eruption, is a graph indicative only.

And (translation from: noticiacanaria.visibli.com...


Volcanologist Juan Carlos Carracedo, recently put in a radio interview to 7.7 in the iron is taking place, "an eruption in the sea at 500 meters deep and four miles away from La Restinga". For vulcanólgo this is "the best possible scenario from the point of view of the El Hierro population", and safety. So far no official source has confirmed this, but according to testimony from citizens and residents of La Restinga, helicopters flying over the area where the rash is supposedly going underwater to confirm this fact. In addition, the coastal radio has asked all vessels to return to port and away from the above area, not to interfere in the work of scientists testing.

Translation from: www.rtvc.es...


The president of the Cabildo, Alpidio Weapons, held that the eruption took place at that distance from the surface of iron because it means that the island can resume normal activity shortly after the reopening of the tunnels Roquille. It also urges caution to fishermen and divers who wish to conduct activities in the sea this morning activities were not recommended. Armas said the island "is in a condition, a lot better than previous days." Armas said that there is "danger" in the island so that invites to be visited because it is one of the best times of year. The president said that if confirmed in full volcanic eruption, a return to "normal" is absolute.

Not to worry, this is the wrong volcano for the tsunami scenario... That volcano would be the volcano on the island of la palma.

Can't provide any other info at the moment because I'm on my phone.

This sounds like excellent news for those living on the island.

What is a little concerning for me is the fact that if an erruption is taking place, should the pressure have dropped or at least come down a little?

You can see from the image below that the pressure is holding steady ....



I'm the first to admit that I am completely uneducated in these thing but love to follow along and learn so if anyone can explain it, that would be great!

More news on the underwater eruption.
www.elmundo.es...
www.noticiasgrancanaria.com...
Like the above poster said people are not worried on this.
Friends of mine live there and they don't fear of something big will happen.
Only thing they say, Finally something happens around here


And the one on La Palma, la Cumbre Vieja. If this one erupts there is nothing on a tsunami or such.
There is possible tsunami if the half of the island collides into the sea.
It's not directly related to a volcanic eruption.

The one which is the biggest worry is Cumbre Vieja Volcano on the Island of La Palma. If that one goes and you live on the east coast of the US you may want to get a surfboard



"Dr. Steven Ward from the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at the University of California co-authored a paper with Dr. Day in which he stated that in the case of Cumbro Viejo, it is not a matter of if, but rather, a matter of when." According to the paper, entitled "Cumbre Vieja Volcano - Potential collapse and tsunami at La Palma, Canary Islands," the volcano would cause a massive landslide on the island of La Palma, forcing a massive chunk of land into the ocean. Immediately thereafter, an unprecedented mountain of water about 3,000 feet high would form and crest only to collapse and rebound back into the ocean. The tsunami would cover about 155 miles in about 10 minutes, and rumble past 500 miles per hour as it spread through the Atlantic toward the U.S. coast. Waves as high as 164 feet would pound the lower part of the Eastern Seaboard.
