Possible upcoming submarine eruption in the Canary Islands.
Since 12:40 UTC, a strong tremor signal and many stronger quakes have been recorded. A series of about 10 strong volcanic quakes (probably well >M2.5) occurred between about 13:00-13:10. Magma is moving again, but we have to wait to see the location of the quakes.
A new press release by the government admits that deformation of the island due to magma pressure is strong. It was kindly translated by Earthquake-Report:
“We have observed a deformation of the entire island. The center of the deformation originates in the present earthquakes area.
The energy release and ground deformation show an acceleration of the active magmatic process on the island of El Hierro, according to information forwarded by the National Geographic Institute at the direction of the Civil Protection Plan for Volcanic risk (PEVOLCA)
The total cumulative displacement from 24 June to 24 hours yesterday, is about 3-4 cm in the horizontal components and 4-5 cm in the vertical component.
