    MORE than 270 earthquakes have been recorded in just ten days near Spain’s Canary Islands raising fears of a volcanic eruption. The quakes have struck near Tenerife and Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands where there is a huge submarine fault between the two islands. Spain’s National Geographic Institute said the biggest recent quake reached a magnitude of 3.2 on the Richter scale at only about 35km from Puerto La Luz in Gran Canaria. A report said the fault line has not been active in recent times, but it added, “What if it started spewing magma again? And what if...

    Hawaii's Kilauea volcano erupted Thursday, releasing lava into a residential neighborhood and prompting mandatory evacuation orders for nearby homes. Hawaii County said steam and lava poured out of a crack in Leilani Estates, which is near the town of Pahoa on the Big Island. Footage shown on local television showed lava spurting into the sky from a crack in a road. County, state and federal officials had been warning residents all week that they should be prepared to evacuate, as an eruption would give little warning. The county has ordered evacuations for all of Leilani Estates, which according to the...

    HONOLULU — Dozens of earthquakes were rattling Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano on Wednesday as underground magma moved into a new area east of the Puu Oo vent. Officials with the U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said the increased activity is associated with the collapse of the crater floor at Puu Oo, which is an open vent below Kilauea's summit crater and lava lake. There were about 50 small quakes detected in the area on Wednesday morning alone. Scientists say the activity could trigger a new eruption and people are being told to stay away. USGS is sending two ground crews...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, following President Donald J. Trump's executive order to break America's dependence on foreign minerals, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke signed a secretarial order directing the initial steps to producing the first nationwide geological and topographical survey of the United States in modern history. The order also directs Interior bureaus to begin work on identifying immediate domestic sources for critical minerals. "Right now the United States is almost completely reliant on foreign adversaries and competitors for many of the minerals that are deemed critical for our national and economic security.

    According to the U.S. Geological Center, an earthquake happened just off the coast of South Padre Island on Saturday. The USGS says that the earthquake hit 103 kilometers (about 64 miles) east-northeast of South Padre around 6:15 p.m. local time. It was a 3.0-magnitude earthquake, which is relatively small. Local reports say that first-responders are standing by in case they're needed to cover any damage but so far they say that no damage has been reported. Local officials say that they don't expect anything further to come of the earthquake either.

    MEXICO CITY (AP) -- A powerful earthquake jolted Mexico City on Tuesday, causing buildings to sway sickeningly on the anniversary of a 1985 quake that did major damage to the capital. The extent of damage or injuries was not immediately clear, but people fled office buildings along the central Reforma Avenue. Mexico's seismological agency calculated its preliminary magnitude at 6.8 and said its center was east of the city in the state of Puebla. Pictures fell from walls and objects were shaken off of flat surfaces. Some people dove for cover under desks. Earlier in the day buildings across the...
