700 Earthquakes Inside A Week Rattle Canary Islands - Volcanic Eruption Speculation Abounds

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The earth is seeing a ton of increased earthquakes across the earth.  The latest story comes from the Canary Islands of Spain, specifically the island of La Palma.  The islands have experienced at least 700 earthquakes in the past week since last Saturday, and it has sparked speculations that a volcanic eruption may be in the near future.

Tyler Durden has the story.

A massive earthquake swarm has been reported around the volcanic island of La Palma in the Canary Islands of Spain. The Volcanological Institute of the Canary Islands (Involcan) said there’s reason to believe the seismic swarm is due to magma slowly rising.

Involcan recorded more than 700 small earthquakes on La Palma near Cumbre Vieja volcano since last Saturday.

The largest rumble, a 3.4 on the Richter scale, was reported by Involcan on Tuesday morning. Most quakes are shallow and happen 5 to 7.4 miles down, suggesting that new magma is rising.

“Without a doubt, the current seismic swarm represents a significant change in the activity of the Cumbre Vieja volcano and is related to a process of magmatic intrusion under the island of La Palma,” Involcan warned. 

According to The Sun, the Special Plan for Civil Protection and Attention to Volcanic Risk Emergencies (PEVOLCA) was activated due to the increased seismic activity.

For clues about a possible eruption. Local officials reported a sensor at the volcano took a reading of the “highest Helium-3 levels in 30-years.” The gas is considered a message from the mantel and may suggest future volcanic activity.

Cumbre Vieja volcano last erupted in 1971, considered one of the most active volcanoes of the Canary Islands. There have been fears an eruption could cause a megatsunami. Steven Ward first explained this theory in research from the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, University of California, Santa Cruz, California, two decades ago.

The situation warrants close monitoring due to the possibility of volcanic activity.

The US has also been experiencing quite a bit of earthquakes, especially on the West Coast and in the Northwest US.  Even the Midwest was hit with them in the past couple of years  We even experienced a fairly large earthquake rattled the southern states in 2018.

See to it that you do not refuse Him who is speaking. For if those did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape who turn away from Him who warns from heaven.  And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heaven.”  This expression, “Yet once more,” denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. -Hebrews 12:25-27

      THEY; the DUNGHEAP of DEPRAVITIES have been “PEDALING” the CANARY Islands FEAR PORN…..AGENDA……for some time.

      THERE IS NO “natural” T$UNAMI that derives from Cumbre Vieja (Canary Islands). :idea: …………..CAVEAT……….

      KILLING OFF the Canary Islands landslide MEGATSUNAMI SCARE. :roll:

      NA: “Oh – I$ IT TRUE that one of the Canary Islands VOLCANOES is going to COLLAPSE IN A GIANT LANDSLIDE :?:
      I WA$ TOLD :roll: that it’ll cause a T$UNAMI that’ll DEVASTATE the coasts of EUROPE and AMERICA”

      Me: “Excuse me – I’m just going to bang my head on the table…” [thump!]

      The question of course refers to a SCARE a few years ago, based on a peer-reviewed paper, that A FLANK COLLAPSE OF….CUMBRE VIEJA
      VOLCANO on the island of La Palma in the CANARY ISLANDS could collapse, GENERATING A MEGATSUNAMI that would initially be about 1,000 metres high, and would still be about 50 metres high when it reached for example the EASTERN SEABORD OF the USA (WIKIPEDIA has quite a nice article on MEGATSUNAMIS if you are interested). It is fair to say that in my experience there is agreement that such A FLANK COLLAPSE COULD OCCUR (and there is lots of evidence that such events have HAPPENED IN the PAST), but the level of SUPPORT FOR the MEGATSUNAMI HYPOTHESIS IS, shall we say, somewhat LACKING WITHIN the SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY.
      There is a nice EVALUATION of the work by Dr George Pararas-Carayannis, :idea: which concludes that:

      • beLIEve

        “The THREAT OF MEGA TSUNAMI generation FROM COLLAPSE OF OCEANIC ISLAND STRATOVOLCANOES….HAS BEEN GREATLY OVERSTATED. :idea:
        NO MEGA TSUNAMIS…….CAN BE EXPEXTED.” :smile:

        A key issue here is the MECHANICS OF the LANDSLIDE. To generate a very large tsunami, this SLIDE WOULD HAVE TO HAPPEN VERY FAST and AS AN ESSENTIAL COHERENT BLOCK.
        Remember that this is a LANDSLIDE OF of 500 cubic kilometres – we do not think that very, very large landslides usually behave like this.
        The CHANCES ARE that A COLLAPSE WOULD OCCUR IN STAGES OVER A LONGER TIME PERIOD, which WOULD GENERATE A MUCH SMALLER WAVE. Most scientists recognise that the single, intact block collapsing very fast idea is theoretically possible, but that it is the extreme end-member of a wide range of scenarios, and thus is highly unlikely.
        There are other issues too (like WHERE ARE the TSUNAMI DEPOSITS FROM OTHER MEGATSUNAMIS given that we know that previous collapses have occurred :?: A tsunami on this scale should leave DEPOSITS that would be very EASY TO MAP). Unfortunately, although most landslide scientists view the likelihood of a single coherent landslide as being very low, the actual evidence to support that view in the case of these types of landslides has not been strong..

        Unfortunately, despite these rebuttals the STORY HAS HAD REMARKABLE TRACTION. Take this page on VIRGIN MEDIA :twisted: for example, which has this WONDERFUL (?) IMAGE:

          When it does come, it will cause A MEGA TSUNAMI that will hit with the :idea: POWER OF AN ATOMIC BOMB

          Starting off at 2000ft, the GIANT WAVE will still be 150ft high by the time it reaches the other side of the Atlantic,

          DAVE PETLEYS …… :idea: REBUTTAL :idea: of the :twisted: VIRGIN MEDIA tract…….. :idea:

          Given the RIDICULOUSNESS of this sort of STATEMENT (and there are worse examples out there), it is good to see
          a…..NEW PAPER that ERODES the CASE for the MEGATSUNAMI still further. :smile:

          This paper, Hunt et al. (2013) has just been published in the journal Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems (sadly the article is behind a paywall).

          The paper presents a very detailed analysis of the DEPOSITS LEFT on the SEA FLOOR by CANARY ISLAND FLANK COLLAPSES. :idea: The RESEARCH is METICULOUS and COMPREHENSIVE. :idea:
          The authors note that THE SEA FLOOR DEPOSITS RECORD …EIGHT :idea: …VOLCANIC FLANK COLLAPSE…EVENTS, the LARGEST of WHICH was ABOUT 350 CUBIC KILOMETRES. :idea:

          • beLIEve

            However, the KEY ELEMENT is that EACH DEPOSIT is FORMED from a SERIES of SUB-UNITS, EACH of WHICH CAN BE …CLEARLY…DIFFERENTIATED FROM OTHER SUB-UNITS BASED on the GEOCHEMISTRY of the MATERIALS that THEY CONTAIN.

            So, the INTERPRETATION by the authors, which sounds very sensible to me, IS THAT EACH SUB-UNIT REPRESENTS….A DIFFERENT PHASE of the COLLAPSE EVENT. :idea:

            In other words, EACH of THESE MAJOR COLLAPSES …DID NOT OCCUR as A SINGLE , COHERENT BLOCK…
            BUT AS A SERIES of SECTIONS ONE AFTER the OTHER. :idea:

            If you want AN ANOLOGY, then what better example than the famous 1993 PANTAI REMIS LANDSLIDE in MALAYSIA:

            PANTAI REMIS Landslide

            • beLIEve

              Cumbre Vieja CANARY ISLANDS……

              The IMPLICATIONS are CLEAR.
              PREVIOUS flank COLLAPSES have OCCURRED as A SERIES of DISTINCT EVENTS….RATHER THAN…AS A SINGLE COHERENT BLOCK. :idea:

              EACH of THESE could have been able to generate a very large wave, and even a local tsunami.

              However, they WOULD :idea: NOT HAVE GENERATED a MEGATSUNAMI. :idea:

              There is no reason to believe that a future event will behave differently, so THIS …SCARE SHOULD be CONSIGNED to THE :idea: GARBAGE CAN :idea: ONCE and FOR ALL. :idea:
