El Hierro eruption quietens

Wed 9th Nov 2011

The National Geographic Institute (IGN), who have been observing both the volcanic eruption off the coast of la Restinga, on the southern coast of El Hierro, and seismic activity off the coast of Frontera on the north of the Island, have reported further activity.

A further 18 earthquakes measuring over 1.5 on the richter scale were recorded between midnight and 09.00 hrs GMT, with the strongest being recorded at 3.0 at 04.15 hrs GMT in the El Golfo area of the coast of Frontera, at depths of 17 to 23km.

On the opposite side of the island, scientists on board the Roman Margaleff Oceanographic Research Vessel are still observing the las Calmas bay area in general. Following an increased level of activity over recent days, they are now reporting that, whilst the jacuzzi appears to have stopped for now and vents closed, this by no means suggests that activity has ended.
