Another large scotch & 2 more valium tonight for you jand I think. Get a grip!! Stop upsetting people who have their holidays planned..get a bloody life other than googleing El Hierro [V]
Just a thought..as the Spanish don't celebrate Guy Fawkes Night wouldn't it be ironic if it blew on 5th November [;)]

Padster , me to, I survived the night of the giant red locusts so a little moving of the earth is nothing

Jand as I asked if you are so worried and you are in Canaries why not come home??

jand is being very economical with the truth:
1. Said that El Hierro was being evacuated when only a village on the island was affected.
2. Says that many scientists he has been in contact with have given him alarming information and informed him that he and his family should be at a high level (presumably to escape tsunamis).  I have a good mind to inform these scientist of his postings and what he has said in their name - I'm guessing they will be surprised and may wish to complain to admin.
3. Has suggested (from his own non expert readings of tremor charts) that other islands may be facing an eruption.
I have no idea why he is "bigging" up this story.  It is interesting and deserves to be looked at but his alarmist lies are just despicable.

Oh yeah - jand says that "thousands of lives are at stake" because of the wrong type of ship being sent over. Will a camera photographing underwater eruptions really save thousands of lives?

You really need to get your facts right and I do not lie !!!!

I received an email from Dr. Warner Marzocchi
to say that El Hierro had been evacuated which I posted .

El Hierro has been evacuated

I suggest that you contact both of the above yourself and maybe ask them also about the two latest earthquakes near Gran Canaria.

Your quote  Oh yeah - jand says that "thousands of lives are at stake" because of the wrong type of ship being sent over. Will a camera photographing underwater eruptions really save thousands of lives?

This is incorrect as I said as copied below

 I think that is disgusting that thousands of lives COULD be at stake and they are stopping the ship comimg with equipment that could save them.

As your quote below

I have no idea why he is "bigging" up this story. It is interesting and deserves to be looked at but his alarmist lies are just despicable.

I await your apology and wish a retraction by yourself on the above statement.

At this time the island has NOT been evacuated only the population of La Restinga 600 in total

it even says that in the article you linked to!

La Restinga is on code RED the rest of Island is on Yellow.

I am quite aware that the island has not ben evacuated the point is that I received an email to tell me it had and thats the reply I posted . I had no reason to doubt the email I received and thats why I posted it as it came directly to me see below


Dear Sir

Please can you have a look at the link below and let me know what exactly is happening at El Hierro and is an erruption going to happen.

http://www.ign.es/ign/layoutIn/volcaSenalesAyerHoy.do

I am at the moment on Fuerteventura and are very worried about what is happening.

Could we expect a Tsunami if this erruption is big and should all the Canary Islands now be on some form of Alert.

I can understand your concern,   as I have asked previous posts if you are so worried why not come back to UK until all possible threat is over? rather than face the outside chance that there is a disaster, get out now while there is no overall panic!

If you all want to see for yourselves and keep updated on all the islands with seismic movements please keep checking the graphs on

http://www.ign.es/ign/layoutIn/volcaSenalesAyerHoy.do

its interesting to look at the one for Fuerteventura this morning.

You can click onto the front page of each graph and this will take you to a 2nd page and you can click again and then it will take you to a 3rd page.

Several years ago whilst in Corrie (beach hotel main St) there was a Plague of large Red locusts millions of them blown over from Africa, the streets ran red all trees and buildings were covered, verandas and if window left open the room was inundated with them.
The sand dunes looked red! got photos somewhere must be 6 to 8 year ago!  all north east of Island covered, the sky was full of them
 the council worker worked like Trojans and all cleared from town streets in a couple of days!

It's a Dragonfly, quite a beautiful one too - not nasty and ugly at all.  Don't know what species though.  You're lucky to have seen it.  From the vivid colours I'd say it's a male and if he's a bit tattered he's probably been in combat for breeding rights. When this happens, they sometimes take time out for a breather.
