El Hierro Volcano (Canary Islands) : Red alert Most spectacular video of the action so far!
Earthquake Report ^ | October 17, 2011 | Armand Vervaeck and James Daniell

Posted on 10/17/2011 2:37:07 PM PDT by Errant

Update 17/10 – 17:29 UTC : The volcano discussion panel @ jonfr.com is expecting that we are in the stage of a surtseyan eruption. The vent opened in a very shallow depth of 150 m. That means that the magma can form pillow lava so that the “building” soon reaches the surface and then continues with phreatomagmatic eruptions.

Great site to follow the latest concerning volcanic activity off the coast of El Hierro, an Island in the Canary chain of islands.

El Hierro has the potential to destroy the entire East coast of the USA.

That would put a small damper on Obama’s weekend jaunts to Matha’s vinyards.

Could change the meaning of “Occupy Wall St.” & “Occupy W.D.C.”......

I think you are referring to Cumbre Vieja on La Palma.

Maybe he would be on the Martha’s golf course when it hit. Ever think of that?

You might want to make sure you have clean underwear on, but if it blows enough to cause the tsunami some predict and you live on the East coast, well they won't be clean for long!

I thought that was Cumbre Vieja, not El Hierro.

Update 17/10 – 14:54 UTC : - The maritime current has changed direction and has pushed the volcanic material rich waters into the La Restinga bay (see image at right). - Everything is becoming big news in Spain, even when the impact is almost nihil. A volcanic earthquake of 2.5 (like we had several of them for many weeks is nothing special and does not deserve a big title. It makes local people even more nervous. - Scientists are convinced that the El Hierro volcano has a bigger magma chamber than the La Palma volcano (1971 La Palma eruption). The La Palma eruption went on for 24 days and released approx. 40 million cubic meters of magma. Scientist have now calculated that the amount of magma beneath the volcano should be probably (nobody is 100% sure of course as these calculations are theoretical) 50 millions cubic meters. The basis of their calculations is the deformation of the island related to the time.

In what order are the fears? Volcanic ash in the atmosphere, earthquake,tsunami, or damage to the local area.

different volcano, different island.

el Hierro is less likely to cause a tsunami than Cumbra Vieja, because it more recently caused a tsunami and has a debris crater to prove it... But nothing is impossible...

Better to panic and be sure... :-)

I don’t wish the man harm, but what would likely happen is that he’d dawdle until the last minute, meanwhile, nobody would be allowed to leave the island until he was gone.

Just like the hurricane.
