    Geological Time Bomb: Red Alert Issued For El Hierro Volcanic Region in Canary Islands; Possible Tsunami Threat To U.S. East Coast

    The IGN, Spain’s USGS equivalent, has issued a Red Alert warning for the El Hierro volcanic region in the Canary Islands amid thousands of earthquake swarms and volcanic activity which started in early August:

    SPAIN’S Instituto Geográfico Nacional (IGN) confirmed on Tuesday that an underwater eruption has occurred five kilometres off the southern coastline of El Hierro, the smallest of the Canary Islands.

    A Red Alert has since been issued by local authorities for the town.

    A notice posted on the Emergencia El Hierro website on Tuesday evening stated: “Phase pre-eruptive. It involves the initiation of a preventive evacuation. Make yourself available to the authorities.”

    Source: The Olive Press (Spain)

    For those not familiar with the volcano, it is situated off the northwest coast of Africa in the Canary Islands, an autonomous Spanish archipelago. While there is no danger to the United States from volcanic eruptions, it has been long theorized by researchers that a large enough eruption and earthquake may be capable of splitting a neighboring volcano, La Palma, in two, which would subsequently cause a land slide on a scale unprecedented in recorded human history. The result would be a massive Mega-Tsunami that would cross the Atlantic ocean, slamming into the Eastern cost of the United States, the Caribbean islands and parts of South America.

    While Tsunamis on this scale are incredibly rare according to researchers, a landslide in 1958 in Latuya Bay, Alaska caused a Mega Tsunami (video) whose wave was higher than the Empire State Building and washed over trees and land some 1,700 feet high above sea level.

    The theorized landslide in the Canary Islands would involve rock masses that far exceed the Alaskan landslides, estimated to be 10,000 times as much mass, suggesting that the resulting Tsunami would easily exceed three thousand feet (30 times bigger than the the 2004 Indian ocean Tsunami) and travel at roughly 450 – 500 miles per hour. The wave would slam into the Eastern seaboard with extreme force threatening over 200 million people who live in states from Florida to Maine, the north eastern Canadian coast, the Caribbeans, Brazil and Venezuela.

    Simon Day, of the College University of London, says the La Palma volcano, situated in the earthquake zone and less than 100 miles from Hierro, is a geological time bomb:

    What we envisage is the whole of this coast line [approximately 1/6 the entire mass of the island] and the slope extending up, all the way to the crest of this volcano that is now in the clouds… will slide away in a single massive landslide into the ocean, pushing the water up in front of it to create the Tsunami wave.

    An previous earthquake (1949) in the Canaries caused the La Palma volcano to actually split nearly in half, prompting scientists to begin warning of the real possibility that massive earthquakes and volcanic activity could be devastating to residents of not only the Canary Islands, but North and South America, as well.

    Video Simulation: Time Line of Canary Islands Landslide Originated Mega Tsunami:

    Given that the entire region is under earthquake warnings and parts of the Canary Islands are now being evacuated, with a red alert having been issued in the Hierro area, we find it necessary to, at the very least, inform our East Coast readers of the possible threat should a massive earthquake in the region cause a breaking away of parts of the island(s).

    The USGS is apparently refusing to issue news, alerts or warnings to East Coast residence regarding the progressively deteriorating circumstances surrounding the El Hierro volcano in the Canary Islands, and a search of the USGS web site resulted in no information, news, alerts or warnings for how these events may affect the United States. Primary news channels remain silent on any possible threats as well. Modern Survival Blog’s research indicates the activity is so significant that the Canary Islands have been sinking since July of this year and we are now receiving reports of widespread volcanic flows in the ocean:

    A look at the GPS stations there, reveals quite evidently that most of them (6 of 10) in the area are literally sinking, and have been doing so since about July of this year. My own observations of other volcanic regions have shown that there is often ‘inflation’ or rising of the land mass prior to volcanic eruption. In this case though, there is rather dramatic deflation to the northeast of El Hierro, particularly ‘Canarias’. The region is sinking…

    In stark contrast though at El Hierro, today, from VolcanoLive.com (John Seach), “An undersea eruption began off the coast of El Hierro Island, Canary Islands on 10th October 2011. Initial reports have placed the eruption site a few kilometres off the south coast of the island at a depth of about 450 m. The eruption has only been confirmed from seismic activity.”

    It is our intention to keep the public aware of the possibility of large-scale natural disasters, and the events taking place in the Canary Islands certainly qualify. As the information above suggests, such events are rare, yet extremely destructive if they come to pass.

    At this time we advise those on the East Coast to remain aware of the earthquake swarms off the coast of Northwest Africa. In the event a massive enough quake occurs, dislodging parts of the La Palma volcano, you’ll have approximately seven (7) hours to evacuate the east coast of the United States and make your way inland before the first wave hits.

      Mac – I have been watching this closely and also monitering a website in the Canary Islands.. so I can confirm the evacuation statements in this article. What I find odd; is that I have not seen one single seismic report of an earthquake there on the USGS website.. I have been watching. They report anything 2.5 and larger world wide.. yet on the previosuly mentioned local website, I see that they state that they have had EQ’s.. Have I just missed the USGS showing the quakes on the quake maps ? I doubt it, since they keep them on there for 7 days.. any thoughts ?

          10,000 low level quakes amounts to liquefaction? Great shakeout at the base? Looks like the entire Mid Atlantic ridge is pulling apart, a 9.0 on the Madrid would send a domino accordian cascade right across the continents.

          La Palma data has been off line for at least 4 days now and as of today, Oct 18- almost no data on the crisis is forthcoming. Once the entire body of 7 islands all cranked up a few days- the info has been MIA. Cover up possible as the 7 islands all share one large magma chamber at the base. If blown, would truly cause biblical tsunamis. HAARP been blowing over there in earnest too.

      • Many of the earthquakes – and there have been probably over 10,000 at this point since late July/August, are probably 2.0 or less… I believe i did see mainstream reports of the 4.5 that happened in the last 48 hours. But the USGS, according to one individual who contacted them, will not be issuing warnings. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDZk-Afin3E — I cannot, of course, confirm the validity of this, but given that USGS has essentially nothing on their site about this, I would say he’s probably legit).

        I honestly do not follow EQ’s very regularly, as I am in Texas, so we’re more or less shielded from most of the effects (though we would likely get a large wave from the Canaries if it happened).Thus, all I can depend on is what everyone else that’s doing the research is putting out there.

        Really, the concern here is that the volcano blows, and causes a massive tremor across the islands, namely in La Palma… That would be a very bad situation, to say the least.

          There have been quite a number of 2.5 > 3.5′s just south of Dallas in the last few months.. more or less around Red Oak / Ennis / Waxahatchee.. I lived there 27 years, never had one.

          If the Canaries do blow.. been nice chatting with you. I’m on the East Coast of Florida. Evacuation by car in 7 hours would be impossible if there was a major alert issued. There are basically only 2 major roads out.. 95N and 75N. It takes me 6-7 hours just to reach the GA line without abnormal traffic.

          • During the Rita (disastrous) evacuation of Galveston and Houston, there were only a few main routes. Many of the side roads were blocked by police and sheriff’s deputies. Their explanation was the prevention of looting in the neighborhoods. If “officials” are in charge , don’t count on being able to use side roads for your escape….that would make too much sense for the government!

            Glad your watching this Sam not sam. Looking at the simulation, if I’m reading it correctly, NE Fl. would get hit with a 31 foot wave. Is that your reading on it? While a 31 foot wave would make a huge mess I think its survivable if you can move to the center of the state.

            It sure would make one hell of a mess though. One of the problems I have with the simulation is it doesn’t show much inland penetration. Do you know what it would look like 10, 20, 75 miles inland?

            I also live in Florida, on the west coast, and unless I left at least 4 hours before the big one, it would be hopeless to leave. Anything after the fact is an exercise in futility, although I’m sure hundreds of thousands would try, and turn the interstates into a giant parking lot. Might as well get the surf board out, and ride the big one all the way to Texas. In reality, there is very little we can do about it.

            You can get in a boat and get to the deepest part off the coast. You will experience a very small and easily survivable wave. If that is not possible head SW and let the land mass absorb the wave. Just don’t go down to the east coast beaches and stare at the pretty water.

            The only other way to save yourself (other than vertically by plane, etc) would be to go out to sea. I guess it would be to a point before the wave started to pile up on the continental shelf. Feasible given the fact that it would take hours for the wave to reach the US if it traveled at 500mph.

            Sam i listened to one of the scientist who estimated the wave and speed and by the time it got to florida it would only be about 75 feet high on average he said you would probably be all right on the west side of I94 in florida so go west not north i would drive to the middle of the state if enough time

          Mac, look at the article:

          Cumbre Vieja Volcano — Potential collapse and tsunami at La Palma, Canary Islands, written by Steven N. Ward, Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, University of California, Santa Cruz California, USA and Simon Day, Benfield Greig Hazard Research Centre, Department of Geological Sciences, University College, London, UK.

          http://www.es.ucsc.edu/~ward/papers/La_Palma_grl.pdf

          They calculate the wave height on the East Coast to be from 10 to 25 meters (30-75 feet). Big difference from the 3000 feet you’re slinging around.

          Still bad enough to shut down a lot of power plants, including nukes on the east coast and to cause a lot of damage, but hardly going to put the entire country under water. I would still recommend packing a good go bag if I still lived on the East Coast… might be time for Floridians to consider a vacation in Minnesota?

      • Not sure.. Tried to find some definitive info but it is dependent on numerous factors like wave height, wave length, the terrain of the land where it hits, etc. To give you an idea, the Japanese Tsunami was 33 feet high and came in around 6 miles… So something over 1000 feet would probably have some massive force behind it and perhaps come in 50? 100? Not sure, but even 50 miles in would be disastrous.

            Sam not Sam,

            I live right in the middle of Florida. If you watch the computer simulations of the tsunami that stuck Indonesia and the Maldiveses in 2004, the tsunami literally wrapped itself completely around entire islands and peninsulas causing shoreline damage along any exposed shoreline. The west coast of Florida probably would not be a safe bug out location in the event of an Atlantic mega tsunami. Personally, I would try to get to the state line and head northwest staying as far away from the east coast and the Gulf of Mexico as I could. Just my two cents.

          the calculations for this type of thing have already been done. it wouldn’t take a wave height of very much top cover the state from one coast to the other. There just isn’t anything to slow it down. Just a bunch of flat land. Inertia is the only thing that will slow it in the end, and thatt’s after it covers everything, and drowns millions of people. That is the stark reality of the situation.

        “It will surge across the entire Atlantic in a matter of hours, engulfing the whole US east coast, sweeping away everything in its path up to 20km inland.”

      Been watching TV reports over the years about La Palma. Scientists claim that massive rains would have to fill the cracks in the mountain with water and then the volcano would have to heat the water to where it would expand the cracks causing a massive land slide, which would in turn cause the tsunami. The tsunami would reach inland over several miles. If everyone was warned of the impending tsunami (at the time), few would be able to escape the ensuing gridlock.

        There have been rumors that the federal government will relocate to Denver should such a disaster happen. There has been talk that some agencies have quietly relocated their headquarters to Denver. It makes sense if one factors in the rumors about DIA, and it being a shelter from some yet-unnamed disaster in that area.

      I think if you got in a boat and made it 20 miles or so out to sea in any direction you’d probably be fine. The heights of the waves are always highest at the shoreline and exaggerated a bit due to trying to compare the local splash from the distant wave. According to one article I read the effect on the US would be more like a normal tsunami, though bigger than the one in Japan and certain to wipe out the East Coast and Caribbean Islands.

      An old Marine Pilot sat down at the Starbucks, still wearing his old USMC flight suit and leather jacket and ordered a cup of coffee.

      As he sat sipping his coffee, a young woman sat down next to him. She turned to the pilot and asked, ‘Are you a real pilot?’

      He replied, ‘Well, I’ve spent my whole life flying planes, first Stearmans, then the early Grummans…. flew a Wildcat and Corsair in WWII, and later in the Korean conflict, Banshees and Cougars. I’ve taught more than 260 people to fly and given rides to hundreds, so I guess I am a pilot, and you, what are you?

      She said, ‘I’m a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about naked women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about naked women. When I shower, I think about naked women. When I watch TV, I think about naked women. It seems everything makes me think of naked women.’

      The two sat sipping in silence.

      A little while later, a young man sat down on the other side of the old pilot and asked: “are you a real pilot?”

      He replied, ‘I always thought I was, but I just found out I’m a lesbian.’

      Latuya Bay is a very small, shallow and confined body of water. Getting a tall wave in that is easy. Not in any way comparable to a true oceanic tidal wave. A wave from the Canaries would have to cross the Atlantic. The inverse square law alone would reduce it’s magnitude by a lot. The only places where you’d see a tall wave would be high up in estuaries that funnel and focus the energy. Think Bay of Fundy. Florida has no such topography. Chesapeake Bay, yes. NYC, yes. But not Florida.

      There has been a very abrupt decrease in the tremors ….

      © Instituto Geográfico Nacional.

      Whilst many find this good news, there is no such luck to be had. Jon Frimann was quick to point out “This is not good. The current eruption did just stop and now the magma has to find a new path up the surface.”

      Basically, where the magma had found a path to follow in the form of the underwater eruption, that has become clogged and stopped. This is bad news as the magma needs to find another way to escape. It could be in the following hours that larger scale earthquakes could occure and this is the final part of the pre-eruptive stage meaning that an eruption closer to the Island is about to take place.

            If Bush had not allowed, even encouraged,the transfer of 42,400 factories to China to benefit the NWO Globalists to which his father and his father’s father belonged, Obummer would never have been elected (by white voters) President.

            (If for no other reason, Bush should be in jail for being such a poor President that the American people actually voted for obummer. Its ALL his fault!)

            At the same time, Bush unleashed an illegal war of aggression against Iraq, when Iraq was NOT the source of the terrorists or had WMD, the claim of which was a fraud perpetrated upon the American and Iraqi peoples.

            For 911? No. For oil and gas? No. Because Saddam was paying every suicide bomber $25,000 to blow themselves up in restaurants and deli’s in Israel at lunch and dinner time. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have EACH cost US a trillion dollars.

            The Atlantic tsunami has a moderate chance of occurring. The likely triggers are a large earthquake or major volcanic activity. Lately many volcanoes around the world are becoming restless. Those already active have become more active. Large earthquakes are becoming more common worldwide. The area of concern is now experiencing both earthquakes and volcanic activity.

            So if the tsunami happens it may happen soon. We can’t know the exact odds, but being aware is a good thing.

    44. Let us examine willfully ignored science regarding a HUMAN POPULATION TIME BOMB…

      Please consider that during my lifetime, when human numbers exploded from less than 3 billion to more than 7 billion worldwide, many experts may not have known enough about what they were talking about when they spoke of human population dynamics and all causes of the human overpopulation of Earth. Their research appears not to be scientific. What I have been trying to communicate regarding the human population does not issue from ideological or totalitarian thinking, or from group-think consensus for that matter. It is not derived from what is politically convenient, economically expedient, socially agreeable, religiously tolerable and culturally prescribed. I have wanted to openly discuss the best available science. That is all. It appears the generally accepted thinking of a surprisingly large number of so-called experts in the field of population dynamics appears to have an unscientific foundation. Their preternatural thought and theorizing about the population dynamics of the human species appears to be both incomplete and mistaken. Most disquieting of all, a widely shared and consensually validated theory about a demographic transition four decades from now is directly contradicted by unchallenged scientific research. As a consequence, and it is a pernicious consequence, woefully inadequate thinking and fundamentally flawed theorizing has been broadcast during my life cycle and continues to be broadcast everywhere by the mainstream media as if it is not only science but the best available scientific evidence. The implications of this unfortunate behavior, inasmuch as it appears to be based upon a colossal misperception of what could somehow be real regarding the human population, appear profound. This failure of nerve has served to slow momentum needed for a confrontation with a formidable global predicament that appears to become more difficult to overcome year by year.

      In their elective mutism regarding an astonishing error, are first class professional researchers with expertise in population dynamics behaving badly by allowing the “ninety-nine percenters” to be misguided and led down a primrose path by the “one percenters”? The power of silence on the part of knowledgeable human beings with feet of clay is dangerous because research is being denied that appears to shed light upon a dark, non-recursive biological problem, the understanding of which appears vital to future human well being and environmental health. Too many experts appear to be ignoring science regarding the human population and instead consciously through their silence consenting to the leviathan scale and unbridled expansion of global overproduction, overconsumption and overpopulation activities that are being adamantly advocated and relentlessly pursued by greedmongering masters of the universe, the tiny minority among us who are primarily responsible for ravaging the Earth, ruining its environs and reducing its fitness for habitation by the children. If this assessment of human behavior is indeed a fair representation of what is happening on our watch, then the desire to preserve the status quo, mainly the selfish interests of ‘the powers that be’, could be at least one basis for so much intellectually dishonest and morally bereft behavior. Could it be that the outrageous per capita overconsumption, large-scale corporate overproduction and unrestricted overpopulation activities of the human species worldwide cannot continue much longer on a planet with the size, composition and ecology of a finite and frangible planet like Earth?

      Hiya,
      Bit of info you may find useful. Any Tsunami from La Palma would be entirely different from Latula Bay in that the land around the bay was heavily sloping, the water had nowhere to go but up. Also The la Palma volcano has different channels of rock, some porus, some not and it will be the way the hot magma reacts with the cold water in these channels that will affect how the blowout will occur. Finally Simon Day, who initially published his findings on La Palma, has been disagreed with many times by his peers, who feel that although a tsuanami is possible, that it will not be of the magnitude he describes. In addition there are those that doubt that the island will split at all, it has been moving apart slowly for decades and the split is now about 16 feet wide and 12 feet deep, the bedrock of La Palma goes down for hundreds and hundreds of feet, an explosion would have to be off the scale to split it in one go. The landslide has been predicted by many experts in the field to be at least two thirds smaller than the prediction made by Day et al. I hope for all our sakes the detractors are right, half of the UK will vanish in much less than 7 hours if they are not. Love to you all x

    46. CAUTION – Fear Mongering Alert

      Before getting your panties in a bunch, I refer you to a paper written by Steven Ward, from the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, University of California, Santa Cruz California, USA, regarding the calculated impact of a La Palma landslide generated tsunami.

      http://www.es.ucsc.edu/~ward/papers/La_Palma_grl.pdf

      There will not be a thousand foot tsunami. Those are only in the movies or in very small bays. We are talking about the Atlantic Ocean.

      Have a beer and relax…

      -and yes, your best bet is to go out to sea. Driving in land would end up being a repeat of the folks trying to get out of Houston when Hurricane Rita was approaching.

        OK, OK, It took me awhile yo get through your thick article. In the future, you would do wise to pick an article the does not support the issue you refute. You say a thousand foot wall of water is not going to happen. I read this article to say improbable not impossible. It still clearly shows a water swell striking the east coast, the power of the wave improbable to calculate. If you don’t believe me, then run down to the shore and tell me how it works out for you, but hey thanks for the article, properly used it can sure help the cause, peace…Hoser!!!

      If you have not sited your location with reference to possible marine/flood/climate events you have not been prepping, have you. Pretending, yes, but prepping, not at all.

      A styrofoam pack would be a good poor man’s version of a floater. It’s not that big that you can’t have it on your balcony so you can have it close all the time. Then it makes a good floater which pulls you quickly to the surface should you go underwater any time. A rope wrapped around the pack can make handles on which you can offer some space for those unprepared unlucky ones running around near you.

      Some drawbacks of a styrofoam pack is that if it goes deep underwater (if the tsunami is very high), it disintegrates because of the water pressure. But then it really needs to be so deep that the pressure would be too much for you, too. Also usually the packets are not very big so you can’t bring a lot of stuff with you, at least on the top of the pack.

      An additional safety measure could a quick lock, those used in rock climbing, to lock you on the rope to hold you attached to the pack in case of strong movement. If you want to harden the pack against violent hits, plywood would be good.

    56. I would be concerned.

      This link shows that a Tsunami can cross the Pacific ocean and still be 15 feet tall.

      http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2003/12/1208_031208_tsunami.html

      There are some differences. The Cascadia earthquake is 1,000 kilometers long but only moved 22 feet. La Palma is only 20 Kilometers wide but would move millions of tons of ground displacing an equal amount of ocean, 15 kilometers.

      I believe geological evidence has been discovered on the East coast supporting evidence. I recall some documentary where the guy was at the tree lines and there was a lot of sea life bones and what not.

      Mac – posted on Foxnews DOT com..

      MADRID– Spanish authorities say activity by an underwater volcano has led them to close access to a port on El Hierro island.

      Ships have been ordered away from waters around La Restinga and aircraft have been banned from flying over the island’s southern tip.

      The port’s 600 residents were evacuated Tuesday after volcanic activity began.

      The regional government of the Canary Islands says scientists have detected airborne volcanic fragments called pyroclasts rising from the sea off La Restinga.

      The government said it awaited scientific reports on the danger posed by pyroclasts, but a research vessel that was collecting samples there has been ordered to desist.

      TV channel La Sexta reported Saturday that journalists also have been told to clear the area.

      • Good info… Again, I want to stress that this article is not intended to claim a tsunami is imminent… It’s just a heads up to preppers on the east coast that there is seismic and volcanic activity and that if they happen to get hit with a devastating eq out there, there is a potential threat of a la Palma landslide, and thus a tsunami…. Just an alert to stay aware of what’s going on out there…

      Anyone living on the east coast should be packing their Bug-out-Bags. Have it ready to go, or loaded in the trunk of your car. First one on the road has a better chance to get out.

      It’s hard to know where to start, but if you cover just all of the basics in a survival situation you will still be much better off that 99% of the people. We started with one of the kits (Expedition Extreme from http://www.shelfreliancesanantonio.com/jmp/jmp_emergency_kits.php) and added copies of important papers, extra clothing and an emergency radio too. It takes only a few minutes to pick out a kit that works for your family and have it shipped to you, instead of driving all over town trying to find all the items you need for a good bug out bag. Then spend a day reviewing the contents and adding your extras. Put it in the hallway closed by the door and it’s ready whenever you need it. Total time spent probably 2 hours = Lifetime of Peace of Mind!

TPTB are going to alert those in positions of power and the little people will receive the alert with about 2-3 hours until landfall…IDK what the end game is there or if it is true but I have a few alternative websites up refreshing like mad, suitcases are packed, meds are ready, important papers collected…if it is true and the public isn’t notified right away, then those paying attention will hopefully have the chance to get out of dodge saving whomever they can.

    64. Unfortunately, all the hype over this method of TEOTWAWKI is based on some very sloppy science. Check out lapalma-tsunami.com for the straight up on this. There is virtually NO evidence for for this scenario. The article states “The content of the BBC Horizon television program has been disproved by fellow scientists and the even the BBC itself has published a partial retraction under the title “Tidal wave threat “over-hyped” “.
      Of course, this could be a cover-up by the NWO and the CFR and the NHL….
      However, I suggest, just in case it DOES happen, that all you Floridians worried about escaping immediately go out and purchase helicopters. You would not even have to leave the state in the event of a tsunami! Just hover above it for a few hours, and film the destruction as all the hotel maids in Miami become mermaids!
      If it does happen though, I am safe here in Phoenix AZ, where I run a taxi company (http://www.paulstaxi.com ) and we will be extremely busy with refugees. So book your taxi now.
