Should we worry about a flank collapse and tsunami?
THERE ARE NO - REPEAT - NO NEW VENTS!!!!!!!
Been thinking about this too. It's also a reminder that in the UK we didn't put in an early warning system (DART) as it was deemed very unlikely but should it fall with speed, it could potentially hit the south coast of the UK I believe.
Bill McGuire did not discount a tsunami from the collapse of the west flank in 2021 but did reaffirm that the west flank of the volcano remains an unstable rock mass. That is a helluva different conclusion made by other scientists that there is no risk of a tsunami from the present eruption. Since I live in New Jersey, the last thing I want to see is a tsunami from La Palma.
Any significance of the latest quake of 4.9? It seems to be getting worse
Should the new vent opened up have us heading inland?
Anything could happen, folks. So the best advice is... be prepared for anything to happen.
Hi Bill, LP03 station today registered more uplift e a bit more of south displacement, what are your thoughts about that? More magma coming?
What about the delta breaking? What could happen Mr. McGuire? Thank you
I am from and I live there, many people have lost their home, including people from my family, I just hope you are wrong !!!
Do you know if there is any specific fissures , pre eruption data, etc. that would give a small warning before the collapse happens? And if so do you know if they’re watching for that?
Ok nevermind my last comment about 3 volcanoes on La Palma. It was shown not to be true. I have to stop listening to Hal Turner and Off Grid Desert Farming channel on YouTube! Geez 😡
And now there are three volcanoes erupting on the island, the northern part (about a third of the island) has uplifted 20cm according to the IGN website, and 5.0 earthquakes. Sounds like a massive disaster in the making. If I am incorrect, please address this! I live on the east coast of FL an hour south of NASA -only a mile in from the water. Also I have mini farm with many animals and will be a massive undertaking to evacuate. Although, I do have a place in AR I could evacuate to if totally necessary.
With the addition of 2 volcanos I'm wondering if that is a "good" thing -I'm guessing it is releasing much of the magma pressure? But then again with the crazy amount of activity, wouldn't that cause the island to be much less stable?
Looking like this eruption is winding down, finally!
A lava stream seems to be returning underground. Is that good? Will it cool and solidify or will it build pressure and re-emerge from a new vent?
Bill, can you provide an update on the threat of the island breaking off since there is currently steam and lava coming from vents on the unstable ridge? How can I be alerted if this were to happen?
Any concerns about the current lava tunnels / tubes? One summary mentions that trapped ground water could create enough steam to make the flank collapse a reality.
