I was watching this show on Discovery Channel called Curiosity almost 2 months ago, and they had something about this Volcano on how it would cause a massive East Coast Tsunami... I guess this is what it would look like if it happened...
IGN has confirmed to the direction of PEVOLCA that there was an earthquake of magnitude 4.4, the western border, with a depth of 21 kilometers.
This earthquake occurred in an area near the coast of the El Hierro and has been felt, in addition to the three municipalities of El Hierro in Arafo and Santiago del Teide (Tenerife) and Valle Gran Rey (La Gomera), according calls received on 1-1-2 CECOES.
This move has caused some landslides in the nucleus of Sabinosa and slopes in the area of Guinea.

I would not worry about it. The folks at glp are doom junkies. This small of a quake might cause some slides, but in a way it is good because when the bigger quake hits a lot of material will already have made its way to the bottom.
The big wave would come if they had a 8.0 near the base of the island that broke off the side of the island where the cracks are. It WILL HAPPEN eventually, but the more small quakes that hit the less material there will be to form a larger tsunami when it does happen.
