El Hierro Volcano Update : 28th November

Mon 28th Nov 2011

Scientists from Spain´s National Geographical Institute (IGN) observing recent activity of the Canary Island of El Hierro have recorded a total of 10 earthquakes over the course of the last 24 Hours (13.00 Sunday - 13.00 Monday GMT).

As with recent days and weeks, the earthquakes were centered around the El Golfo bay area, to the Northwest of Frontera on the northern coast of the island. The recorded magnitudes varied from 1.5 to 2.2 on the richter scale and at depths between 17 - 21kms.

As with the southern coast of the island over recent weeks, an Oceanographic research vessel is due to arrive on the North of the Island to investigate and map the ocean floor in the El Golfo bay and to check for the likelihood of new volcanic vents being created.

Meanwhile, the Las Calmas bay area, off the coast of La Restinga on the south of the island have seen a development with the volcanic eruptions over the weekend. A new vent appears to have opened up 1.8 km from the coast and this has been accompanied with a marked change in the colour of the stain, together with the emission of sulfurous gasses and the production of a number of smouldering volcanic rocks being brought to the surface of the water.

This recent Youtube post shows footage of the smouldering `lava bombs´floating to the surface of las Calmas >>>

mmm... I know, she lifts them from my blog and distorts the truth, and even asks her viewers for money for all of her hard work...

True, but she uploads some very pretty pictures.

Your page is great, but I cannot understand why you promote with videos from Mary Greely who is renowned for misrepresenting, poor translation, and a great fear mongerer on the YouTube rounds.
