A M5.6 earthquake hit 180km (112 miles) east of El Hierro, the smallest and youngest island of the Canary Islands, on September 26, 2019.

The tremors were recorded as far as Tenerife, more than 400kms (250 miles) away from the epicenter. According to specialists, the next magma intrusion begins at El Hierro volcano.

The strong earthquake was so strong it has been recorded by seismometers on several islands across the archipelago.

Data show El Hierro was first hit by an earthquake swarm that began on September 25, 2019.

This swarm announces the next intrusion of magma at El Hierro, according to specialists. The last few intrusions degassed below sea level after rocking the entire edifice as the magma gradually made its way to the surface from its origin below the bay where the original volcano slumped to the ocean floor millennia ago.

Meanwhile, El Tiede volcano in Tnerife has been hit by an earthquake swarm about 10 days ago.

The seismic unrest is now spreading across the world. Hopefully, this situation will not end up with a cataclismic eruption. Be ready!
