Alert: Increased chance of El Hierro Eruption

Saturday, November 12, 2011

COMING CRISIS ALERT -- November 12, 2011


El Hierro, Canary Islands, until November 15, 2011, midnight EST.


There is now an increased chance of eruption in the North of El Hierro.

Co2 has reached 1481 + / - 37 tonnes per day, an amount equivalent to 4.35 times the normal average value considered for the diffuse emission of CO2 for the island.

The 4.6 magnitude quake was the largest earthquake to hit El Hierro since the swarm of earthquakes started, a swarm which has now reached over 11,500 earthquake since July 2011.

National Geographic Institute researchers have discovered that the increased ground deformation during the past 4 days has been accompanied by an increased magnitude in the seismic activity, which could be an indication of a new influx of magma in the North and could possibly lead to a new Eruption.

Alert for La Restinga remains on Red.

Alert for the rest of the Island remains on Yellow,
