    Canary Island Of La Palma ROCKED By Over 70 Earthquakes

    The Canary island of La Palma has been rattled by another swarm of earthquakes. This new swarm reignites fear that the Cumbre Vieja volcano could erupt just four months after a swarm of 200 earthquakes rocked the island.

    According to the Express UK, the Spanish archipelago was struck by up to 70 small quakes, recorded between Monday and Wednesday, reaching between magnitude 1.5 and 2.6 on the Richter scale. Government officials announced more quakes were felt between 3 am and 6:30 am this morning at magnitudes of between 2.1 and 1.5. Most of them were located in the area of Los Canarios, in Fuencaliente, and in El Pueblo, Villa de Mazo, although they have also been registered in El Paso and Tazacorte.

    The Canary government, however, is desperate to know why the earthquakes have begun again. They also want to know what could happen in the future.

    A statement by government bosses read:

    “Given the increase in seismic activity recorded on the island of La Palma, the Ministry of Territorial Policy, Sustainability and Security of the Government of the Canary Islands, in application of the Special Plan for Civil Protection and Emergency Care for Volcanic Risk (PEVOLCA), has convened tomorrow Friday, February 16, a meeting of the Scientific Committee of Evaluation and Monitoring of Volcanic Phenomena.

    “On the agenda of the meeting, which will be chaired by the Deputy Minister of Environment and Security, Blanca Delia Pérez, will be to discuss the precursors and parameters of seismic activity on the island in recent weeks; assess the activity and evolution forecast, and appoint the sole representative of the Steering Committee.

    “The Scientific Committee for Evaluation and Monitoring of Volcanic Phenomena is formed, in addition to the Government of the Canary Islands and representatives of the General State Administration, by the National Geographic Institute (IGN); the Superior Council of Scientific Investigations (CSIC); the Canarian Volcanological Institute (Involcan); the Geological and Mining Institute of Spain (IGME); State Meteorological Agency (AEMET); Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO); specialists of the two Canarian universities (ULPGC and ULL) and representatives of other prestigious institutions in the study and research of volcanology in the Canary Islands.”

    As with every seismic event,  experts stressed there is no imminent danger of an eruption and say the movements that struck at a depth of between 14 and 30 kilometers are considered “normal” for a volcanic island. Nonetheless, La Palma is being monitored closely to detect every single movement, even though they have not been felt by the public.

    Following the quakes in October, scientists stepped up monitoring in the Cumbre Vieja area with more seismic stations and GPS antennas, together with a continuous radon measurement station.

      Correct me guys and gals if I’m wrong. But hasn’t this archipelago chain of islands been fairly recently remarked on as being a potential tsumnami-producing cability? And would not the eastern seaboard be affected? Seems the earth is being wracked by some tensions all over the place. Sooner or later somethings going to give. I sure as all hope ‘later’ is the way it all pans out.

      This island could to cause a undersea land slide. If scientists who have looked at this are right, the resulting tsunami could be huge and would move West toward the US East Coast. I think there would be two hours warning — but I don’t remember exactly.

    3. A tsunami can travel over 600 mph across deep water (slower in shallow water) The US east coast is about 3,400 miles from the Canary Islands. So ideally we might get 5 hours warning time. Or they may want to avoid panicking the public and not warn us at all.

    4. YohanSmythe says:

      In a different video I watched it said 7 – 9 hours to hit the East coast. plenty of time to get in a small plane and head for the mountains. A video I watched years ago said that everything within 5 miles of the coastline would be destroyed.

      That would remove a lot of east coast libtards. Also, hopefully it would happen when both houses of Congress are in session.
