Oh i don't know......it is ongoing volcanic activity. We could be seeing the birth of a fantastic holiday destination for those around in say 100'000
Seriously though, whilst i genuinely believe there is no imminent danger, i would be rather worried if i lived there because Mother nature is great at
throwing curve balls - you think you have something figured out and then "bam", something completely new and unexpected happens.
Teide in Tenerife is the one to worry about although there is no real activity there at the present. I once had a geology book that demonstrated that
a major eruption of Teide most certainly is possible and could also potentially make the Vesuvius eruption look small. It had possible projected
pyroclastic flows upto a depth of 10ft covering the entire island! Obviously, that was pretty much a worst case scenario but based on the geological
record, certainly a possibility at some future point. I know driving around up there is certainly pretty eerie!
