Since the July 19 began the seismic crisis , marked curves and small jumps for each of the more than 9977 earthquakes.

According to Lopez, the seismicity suggests that occurred three miles south of the island and 900 meters deep. Experts do not rule out that another eruption could occur closer to the coast but consider the low probability. Experts believe that the earthquake on Saturday in El Hierro does not increase the risk of eruption What will happen in El Hierro? El Hierro suffers the greatest magnitude earthquake from seismic crisis began. The Army sent a unit to assist in the work of "prevention" in El Hierro

The scientists listed various circumstances that test the eruption: detection by seismographs of the call "volcanic tremor" , the deceleration of seismic movements, the decrease in magma pressure, thereby reducing the swelling of the island, and the issuance of gases, which has affected marine life, according to pictures broadcast but not discussed by the authorities.
