The earthquake man
Already 21 earthquakes in 2 days and continuing.
small magnitude with depths between 6 and 8 kilometers and their magnitudes between 0.6 and 1.5 MbLg. Not felt by the population. These earthquakes are located in the same area in which a frequent microseismic activity has been recorded since last November.
Probably nothing very dangerous… But the super volcano is around.

That is scary indeed. Hopefully there is not enough pressure building under the volcano. That would create a very bad eruption!

I was there. Vilaflor, at 1,400 m altitude, is the highest village of Tenerife, situated south the Teide volcano.
Walking on the active Teide was amazing! Its most recent eruption occurred in 1909 from the El Chinyero vent on the northwestern Santiago rift.
The United Nations Committee for Disaster Mitigation designated Teide a Decade Volcano because of its history of destructive eruptions and its proximity to several large towns.
Teide, Pico Viejo and Montaña Blanca form the Central Volcanic Complex of Tenerife.

Let’s wait for the booms and rumblings if the swarm continues

Most dont know this, but La Palma and Hierro share the same magma chamber. Close proximity indicates? So does Teide

Yep and now two other volcanoes thought to be linked underground in Indonesia: Agung and Batur
