El Hierro is a 278.5 km2 island, formed approx 1.2 million year ago after three successive eruptions, the island emerged from the ocean as a triangle of basaltic dykes topped with a volcanic cone more than 2,000 metres high. With continued activity resulting in the island expanding to have the largest number of volcanoes in the Canaries (over 500 cones, another 300 covered by more recent deposits), together with approximately 70 caves and volcanic galleries, including the Cueva de Don Justo whose collection of channels is over 6 km in length. Landslides have reduced the size and height of the island. The current highest point is situated in the middle of the island, in Malpaso, 1501 meters high.

* Princess Diana assassination (2 years before the accident)
* The first attack of World Trade Center (happened 3 & 1/2 years after the warning)
* The second attack of World Trade Center (911) (happened 13 years after the warning)
(predicted that two airplanes would hit the towers and that the buildings would fall)
* Tsunami in Asia (8 years before the disaster - predicted date & time within 1 hour)
* Air France Flight 447 Crash (3 years before the accident)

* Lindsay Hawker murder (predicted date of death 2 & 1/2 years before)
Jucelino Nobrega da Luz: A Modern Day Nostradamus
La Palma volcanic eruption on Canary Islands; could trigger up to 150-meter high tsunami across the Atlantic; American east coast including Florida devastated.
Models made by Jucelino the collapse of the island show the first regions to be affected by waves of up to 150 feet high: the neighboring islands of the Spanish archipelago of the Canaries. Within hours, the west coast of Africa will be hit by waves similar.
Between nine and 12 hours after the island collapses, waves of 20 to 80 meters will cross 6500 kilometers of ocean and reach the Caribbean islands and the east coast of the United States, Brazil and Canada. Upon arriving in ports and estuaries, the water will be piped to the interior. Deaths of people and destruction of property will be immense, according to Jucelino.
Up to 19 hours after the eruption, waves of 6 to 50 meters will reach the coast of North and Northeast Brazil, the Para Paraiba. The island of Fernando de Noronha is one of the places where the tsunami will come with more strength in the South Atlantic Europe will also be hit.
The southern coast of Portugal, Spain and West of Britain will experience waves of up to 20 meters, four or five hours after the geological event in the Canary Islands. Ports will be destroyed. Natural disasters like these are rare, occurring every 12 to 13 thousand years. But La Palma could collapse much sooner.
THE DANGER OF VOLCANO CUMBRI VIEJA
"A wave higher than Nelson's Column and travelling faster than a jet aircraft will devastate the eastern seaboard of America and inundate much of southern Britain, say scientists who have analyzed the effects of a future volcanic eruption in the Canary Islands."
Scientists Warn Of Massive Tidal Wave From Canary Island Volcano
"There is a potential for a devastating Tsunami on the East Coast of the United States, having its genesis in the Canary Islands. If this event were to take place, it would devastate vast areas of the East Coast of America. According to experts, it’s not a question of IF this occurs, but WHEN… "

Lol @ flame-retardant flops. Have a terrific trip.
I see mention of the dreaded La Palma or El Hierro generated megatsunami. Anything is possible, but that original study by Day and Ward that fuels this scenario is highly contested.
There is no doubt there have been landslide induced megatsunamis in the past, but the effects are localized, or at most regionally destructive. (ie Lituya Bay in 1958)
Here is a link to a rebuttal study to the Day/Ward hypothesis.

I have my smart phone all the time. I have the usgs earthquake app and it is constintly going off with quakes. More quake than i.get email and text. Yes this does seem to be ramping up for something big. The last few months have been especially earth shaking, pun intended,. I believe something big is about to occure but i guess im not a specialist. I have just been recording earthquake activity for the last 5 years in my journal and my phone updates in real time. I have also been told by several fema ops in florida that they are preparing for a big mother nature driven disaster all across the US. They wont tell me what and when i asked when was told it was mpossible to pinpoint but soon.
I believe the sink holes, especially the one in Lo
uisiana are part of it as well. And about that one, think about the bp oil disaster in the gulf. That well they blew out streatched all the way under Louisiana. A lot of oil erupted from there. So the land above that would sink to fill the void left after that would it not. We have a full moon the next few days also. That.will play a key roll in quake activity which is already seeming to ramp up as it is. Just my opinion but i think.we better watch.out.
