Well, it would appear that I may have spoke too soon. Latest information is not good. Here's an update:

La Palma has begun preparing evacuation protocols: the operation is prepared for a "hypothetical" eruption.

The mayor of El Paso, Sergio Rodríguez, has confirmed that the island and regional institutions are working to coordinate and update the protocol that would have to be activated in the event of a volcanic eruption on La Palma.

"The meeting that took place yesterday was to be prepared in all areas, since we have to locate and be clear about the evacuation routes that we need to be able to get the neighbors out. In addition, we must know the means we have. There is no operation underway, but we must have the main issues at hand with regard to equipment, generators, and machinery. The current situation requires it and, although it is unlikely, we must have everything ready" he explained.

In this same sense, he has pointed out that the population of the municipality is highly sensitized, especially in the neighborhoods where most of the tremors of the seismic swarm that began last Saturday are being registered.


There has been a sudden deformation of the ground directly above the earthquake activity, showing a 6 cm movement of the unstable land mass on the southwestern flank of the island of La Palma.  This unstable area is now showing in all red on the map below.  THIS is precisely the section of land at risk of sliding off into the ocean and causing a Tsunami that wipes out the US east coast.

The surface of the island of La Palma has now risen and been deformed by 6 centimeters in the area where the strongest seismic movements are located, around the Cumbre Vieja, and this afternoon some low-magnitude earthquakes have been registered at a ‘shallow depth’ which is between one and three kilometers under the ground.
