"Note 340.- Regional efforts of book el hierro, a deep earthquake of 3.3 and its seismic series. In Tenerife and surroundings, follow the activity and also in LA Palma, Canary Islands, Spain. 27/01/2020.-yesterday there was a deep earthquake of magnitude 3.3 to which they have followed several interesting replicas around that depth in el hierro, They have marked the two structural axes or main failures that cut the island now:

1.- the nw-SSE AXIS, is one of the main, the magma followed this axis in depth the past eruption and from the swarm area north of white sands, is heading towards the sse in a way that slips from The North by the west wall of the Gulf Valley rising to the viewpoint of los basque. From There, passing through the summit area and there goes down through the area of the julan and goes out to the sea a little following the line of coast, passing through cala hotels in direction to the restinga, going out to the sea shortly before arriving and happening just Where the underwater volcano erupted in front of the restinga or also rebranded as volcano volcano.

2.- the other axis ne - ssw of the shear, starts right across the Gulf Valley in the area of los roques de salmor and is headed in direction ssw sliding through the east wall of the Gulf Valley, for Pass just below the town of border and climb to the summit, pass through the cross of the kings and go down the other side, forming a chain of craters in the same direction and leaving the area next to cala hotels to cross with The other alignment at the point in which was the earthquake 4.3 after which the eruption began, the structurally weaker point where the magma climbed.

The Japanese said that after an eruption this seismicity was typical after an eruption, from less deep to deeper for the next 10 years, but that we had to watch it, since the trend could change without notice. For the moment there it goes, that's a week ago we had an earthquake at 35 km deep and everything yesterday is something more shallow, we'll have to keep watching. (Enrique)"

On The Island of LA Palma you have to highlight an earthquake also yesterday, about 25 km deep and magnitude 1.4 very close to Santa Cruz, in the sea, which responds to regional efforts. (Enrique)

Es2020btzid 26/01/2020 03:46:46 28.6761 25 km m 1.4 mblg and Santa Cruz de la palma. Ilp

On The Island of Tenerife on the other hand follow the constant activity and especially affecting the triangle adeje - vilaflor - caldera de ucanca where everything is moving, highlighting the swarm of the south dorsal of vilaflor. The last earthquake located today, in the area of Boca De Tauce (Enrique).

"Note 341.- Seismicity in the central building teide pico viejo, in addition to a swarm in the area of the south dorsal, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain. 31/01/2020.-today drawing the main seismic alignments I have taken a surprise, I have appeared some parallel alignments in ne-SW directions placed on the central building teide pico-Viejo, one aligned with the teide and another with old beak that we could Be indicating a series of efforts throughout the area with traction and displacement efforts considering the n-s efforts and breakage and decompression considering the e-w efforts.

This would not be meaningful if it was not because if it compares to the following diagram (which would have to turn 90º) would see the decompression cracks on the right, which occur for example when there is a settlement of a building, identical To those who appear in the teide building, which also indicate a movement or displacement of a portion of the island to the east (E) regarding another portion of the island to the West (w).

But this graphic does not end there marks a crack of breakage and decompression that I have marked with a circle and that could equate to the area of the swarm in the area of vilaflor, in the south dorsal, where it would facilitate the entrance of the magma or intrusion Of magma through these areas of fractured character of character. Let's see what GPS stations say in the next few days and that happens with the seismicity in the area, the truth is that these alignments are of the most interesting.

1.- the most interesting part starts in the first alignment of microsismicidad in the South-Southwest Skirt of the teide itself are a series of 4 Microdisks at a depth of 4-5 km from yesterday, in area that does not I had moved to the date so evident so far, next to the base of the hydrothermal system of the teide, which has also moved and where it ends that alignment of microdisks and whose listing I put below.

2.- the second alignment on its part is in the area of Pico Viejo, in a parallel alignment to first, but with a big difference, the 3 Microdisks (one of them even negative) are located deeper to A depth of about 11-14 km in the area where the north wall of the magmatic chamber of the caldera of ucanca is.

3.- and of course, the swarm of the area of vilaflor, in the south dorsal of Tenerife that has returned to move antesdeayer and how, with up to 14 events located between 7 AND 9 Km, to add a couple of them more deeper to 10 and 11 km:

In the rest of Tenerife and surroundings, there are some more localized earthquakes or earthquakes, which end the SEISMIC PANORAMA BY ADEJE, arico and a pair in the area of the volcano in the middle. This starts and could get very interesting in the next few days and weeks.

Es2020bzedq 28/01/2020 23:52:58 28.1569 6.3 km m 0.4 mblg nw adeje. Itf

Finally I close with a little activity in the area of the island of LA Palma, both under the old summit volcano and in the surroundings quite deep under the island, a result of these regional efforts (Enrique)."

To these two "official and valid" earthquakes you have to add the many (which are a few) that removed from the catalogue when considering that they are produced by human activities, shallow explosions of very superficial quarry, I found 5 eliminated these last days . (Enrique).

" Earthquake of 2.5 in Tenerife today, earthquake sense in the iron of 3.0 yesterday and earthquake relocated in the palm of antesdeayer, Canary Islands, Spain.- 03/02/2020.-more movement of the planned in the Canary Islands of which it seems with three remarkable events, in three different islands, in addition to the seismicity that continues in Tenerife and surroundings. To say that the earthquake of el hierro has been very weak for some of its inhabitants who have indicated it to this facebook by private, but it has not been marked as such in the ign at the moment. If you have noticed this or another new or whatever it takes, at the end of the post you have the links to report it to the ign.

1.- Earthquake in Tenerife, last night: Initial:

Revised: it keeps the magnitude, it's located something else south and something else to the east, bringing it to the island. The depth passes from 7.2 to 3.1 km. A change a little forced.
Es2020cevmm 01/02/2020 02:18:30 28.4982 3.1 km m 1.3 mblg and fuencaliente of LA Palma. Ilp

4.- in addition to these three earthquakes, the activity inside Tenerife continues, with a microsismo of magnitude 0.1 located on the 31th in the area of the caldera 7.7 km South-Southeast From Pico Viejo almost where the hillside ends, another on February 1 in the area of adeje at 5.4 km of magnitude 0.3 and finally another more interesting in the area of güímar about 2 km front To the coast in the continuation of the south wall of the valley in the sea with a magnitude 1.1 and at a depth of 30 km, which will surely be relocalizarán.

Well, we keep watching, that it's not little, these days with more information from the ign that has put seismograms with more resolution, with the sign in short period (to see what last) and with the full spectrogram until 40 Hz, all a novelty. To say this was already seen in Maci, but not in the rest of seasons, something is something and it will be good for everyone.... (Enrique)"

Early this morning there was an earthquake  on the west coast of Fuerteventura.
As noted on this thread previously we have an early warning facility in our house near Corralejo, a dog !!!
Filo is an English Pointer. From 7.30pm to 1am this morning he starts licking our floor tiles in and outside on our patio, he will ignore any attempts to stop him.
This is not a joke, as I said, this has happened a number of times since we rescued him 5 years ago, it has been reported on here previously and has editorial on Island Connections news.

"VICENTE PÉREZ

Tenerife is one of the most famous volcanic islands in the world, product of eruptions for tens of millions of years from the seabed and inhabited today by a million people plus tourists who visit it (they exceeded 6 million last year ). The stratovolcano of Teide is the third largest in the world if its height is taken into account from the seabed (7.5 kilometers). There are few eruptions on the island, on a human time scale, the last in 1909 (El Chinyero), and from time to time there are increases in underground signals (earthquakes, gases ...) that remind us that it is a territory volcanically active

Well, the truth is that Tenerife, in 2020, still lacks an action plan against this risk, from the perspective of civil protection. Although it is under development on behalf of the Cabildo to a multidisciplinary team.

t was the group of Podemos in the Cabildo that in 2016, with CC and PSOE in the island government, denounced that the island lacked this plan, and urged to prepare and approve it, since it is a legal obligation since 1996, and lack This document for this type of emergency was "a serious political irresponsibility."

The lack of a plan was controversial in 2016 after denouncing it We can

The then Minister of Environment and Security, the socialist José Antonio Valbuena (now Counselor for the Fight against Climate Change and Territorial Planning in the Canarian Government) responded that Tenerife had sufficient control mechanisms and emergency plans to serve the population and it was referred to the monitoring done by Involcán (Volcanological Institute of the Canary Islands) supported by the Cabildo, of the seismic activity of the Island, as well as to the Special Territorial Plan for the Prevention of Risks of Tenerife ”. The National Geographic Institute (IGN) is the one that, legally, is responsible for volcanic surveillance in Spain, and has increased in recent years the study of the bowels of the island.

But this last plan cited, as the then spokesperson of Podemos in the Cabildo replied at the time, basically proposes to locate the facilities and equipment of the Cabildo outside risk areas, “but does not establish measures of self-protection, prevention or organization of the population in case of volcanic emergency ”.

Third meeting of the Cabildo-ULL technical commission that prepares the plan

The truth is that later the Cabildo commissioned the preparation of this document and such is so that the area of ​​Security of the island corporation, which runs Cayetano Silva and that depends on the Ministry of Natural Environment and Security, has maintained this week the third of the work meetings of the Multidisciplinary Technical Commission of the Cabildo for the works of the exactly called Action Plan against the Volcanic Risk of Tenerife (PAIV), a document that is essential in the management of emergencies related to possible eruptions on the island and that in The present is in the process of projection.

"We live on a volcanic territory, in the last six hundred years there have been 16 eruptions in the Canary Islands, so we can not leave any circumstance of action to chance in the face of a new possible volcanic activity," Silva said in a statement. And he added that “for this reason we must have studied and planned all the actions that must be implemented, always attending to the procedures that from the Canary Islands Government are established in the Special Plan against the Volcanic Risk of the Canary Islands PEVOLCA, which we could say, He is the father of our plan. ”

These sharing meetings are held periodically with the agents involved in civil protection emergencies, from municipal, employer and worker representations, firefighters, different areas and services of the Cabildo itself. This week's appointment came for the sharing of the chapter dedicated to the processes of evacuation, shelter and supply of the population.

The Cabildo recognizes that in an eruption the number evacuated "can be very high"

"In the event of a volcanic emergency, the number of people who can be evacuated can be very high," Silva said, "and although there has not even been any eruption - that is, there are only warnings - the transport processes , accommodation and supply must be very well parameterized and protocolized, and we are in this work ”.

Geologists are concerned about the increase in volcanic danger due to the intense urbanization and large population that the island has had, which would multiply the possible damage with respect to past eruptions. Population evacuation needs would depend on where the volcanic episode occurred and also on meteorological factors such as wind direction. But better safe than sorry, when it comes to the forces of nature.

The drafting of this plan is being carried out between the Cabildo de Tenerife and the Disaster Risk Reduction chair. Resilient Cities of the University of La Laguna, at the head of which is the geologist Carmen Romero. "We must bear in mind that in all the eruptions that have occurred in the Canary Islands there has been an evacuation of the population, spontaneously or in a controlled manner," Romero explains in the Cabildo press release, so that they reached the point of settlement of the islands at present "a possible evacuation of the population and its relocation in shelters must be protocolized, although due to the nature of these Events, this protocol must be flexible".

“As far as volcanoes are concerned, we can talk about actions in which the population is involved for a long time, we must remember, for example, that the last volcanic activity in Lanzarote lasted seven years”, back in the 18th century, according to This expert.

The last volcanic eruption occurred in 2011 in El Hierro, where it was necessary to evacuate the 500 inhabitants of the town of La Restinga, in the municipality of El Pinar. This volcanic crisis allowed us to gauge how to deal with an extreme situation of this type on a small scale, and it was evident that there were aspects to improve on how to act in these cases not only the emergency services but also the affected population, as well as the media themselves as to how the information should be transmitted in these circumstances, so as not to generate unjustified alarms or, at least, not beyond those necessary.

No signs of a short-term eruption, according to Involcan and IGN

That said, it should be remembered that volcanologists do not signal a possible short-term eruption. Last year, Itahiza Domínguez, a physicist at the IGN, said that "The volcanic situation on the island of Tenerife is stable, but you need to study the Teide further." This Canarian researcher coordinates the Multiteide project, the largest study carried out so far on the Tenerife stratovolcano. His diagnosis was reassuring.

The coordinator of the Vulcanological Institute of the Canary Islands (Involcan), Nemesio Pérez, during a course for journalists organized last year in collaboration with the Association of the Press of Tenerife, explained that the probability of a new eruption in the Canary Islands is, in percentage terms, 94.5% in one century, 76% in 50 years, 25% in 10 years, 13% in five years and 2.8% in one year. In the case of Tenerife, this probability is even lower: just over 1% in a year, 5% in five years, 10% in a decade, 42% in half a century and 66% in a century, «percentages that would increase if there would be a volcanic reactivation process

But this geological phenomenon is not, by far, the greatest natural risk to the lives of its inhabitants, since those killed in floods by rains are counted by hundreds in the last five centuries while volcanism, with 16 eruptions, has caused as At least 23 deaths, and of these, 16 were killed not by pyroclasts or lava flows but by earthquakes related to the eruption of Arafo in 1705.

At last as reported by Enrique the newspapers are at last reporting the activity on Tenerife,

Translated.

"18 small earthquakes detected in less than 24 hours in Las Cañadas del Teide
The magnitudes of microseismic activity are between 0.2 and 1.1 and the depths between 6 and 14 kilometers

The National Geographic Institute detected from the first hour of February 13 until 1.09 on day 14, 18 small earthquakes, of which 16 have been located inside Las Cañadas del Teide, concentrated in an area southwest of Pico Viejo and Northeast of Guía de Isora. The magnitudes of the microsisms are between 0.2 and 1.1 and the depths between 6 and 14 kilometers.

The seismic activity of the last hours is located in an area with numerous microseismic activity detected and located in the last months. This does not pose any risk to the population and is within the normal parameters in active volcanic areas, such as the island of Tenerife.

During the month of January, a total of 175 earthquakes were located in the Archipelago, with a maximum magnitude of 3.3 mbLg corresponding to the Earthquake on the 26th, with an epicenter located approximately 2 kilometers off the southwest coast of the island of El Hierro and at a depth of 30 km.

"The Government Delegation gathers emergency personnel to analyze the volcanic risk for Civil Protection in the Canary Islands
The subdelegate of the Government in Las Palmas, Teresa Mayans, affirms that in an active volcanic area such as the Canary Islands, prevention measures focused on knowledge and permanent surveillance are necessary"

The Government's delegate in Las Palmas, Teresa Mayans, inaugurated this Monday the Conference on the knowledge of volcanic risk and the impact on Civil Protection, in which personnel from emergency intervention and assistance services address the implications it has for Civil Protection a risk as specific and present in the Archipelago as is that of volcanic activity.

“When you live in an active volcanic area, as happens to the Canarian population, the development of prevention measures is necessary. These measures should be focused on the knowledge of the volcanic activity of the area, which allows to determine the characteristics of future eruptions, and the establishment of a permanent surveillance system, ”said Mayans.

In his opinion, the Administrations have "the obligation to manage the planning and use of the territory, emergency planning and adopt education and dissemination policies in situations of danger, such as volcanic eruptions."

Teresa Mayans recalls that since 2010 Canarias has a Special Plan for Civil Protection and Emergency Care due to volcanic risk (PEVOLCA), which was updated in July 2018 in order to provide a rapid, efficient and coordinated response to resources public and private in an emergency situation of this nature.

State and regional administration experts in Las Palmas and Santa Cruz de Tenerife
This day, which is held Monday and Tuesday at the headquarters of the Government Delegation in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, will also take place at the Government Subdelegation in Santa Cruz de Tenerife on February 19 and 20.

It involves experts from the Geological and Mining Institute (IGME), an autonomous research body attached to the Ministry of Science and Innovation; of the National Geographic Institute (IGN), an organ attached to the Ministry of Transportation, Mobility and Urban Agenda, as well as the Civil Protection Unit of the Government Delegation in the Canary Islands and the General Directorate of Security and Emergencies of the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands .

The objective is to train managers and technicians in the planning and management of emergencies arising from volcanic risk, through, among others, the analysis of recent volcanic eruptions and knowledge of the European Civil Protection Mechanism and the Response Unit Emergency Geology of the IGME (URGE).

The day also addresses issues such as indirect volcanic hazards, such as seismicity, tsunamis, floods and other natural hazards, as well as monitoring volcanic activity through geology, geochemistry, gravimetry and other techniques.

They close the beach of El Arenal, in Tenerife, after the collapse of a slope
The decision is motivated by the reports prepared by both the Local Police of La Laguna

The mayor of La Laguna, Luis Yeray Gutiérrez, has signed on Friday a side that establishes a ban on the use of the coastal area of ​​El Arenal beach, between Bajamar and Punta del Hidalgo, for security reasons.


The decision is motivated by the reports prepared by both the Local Police and the Coastal Provincial Service in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, following a recent collapse of the slope on the slope of the beach, with the consequent danger to people and bathers that could be found on the coast.

"Our will is to guarantee the maximum security of people and in the face of the obvious risk of collapse that the reports of both the Local Police and the Coast Service, we are forced to take this resolution," explains Luis Yeray Gutiérrez, who asks to bathers and surfers, regulars in this area, who avoid taking risks and refrain from accessing the coast.

The side provides that until further resolution the prohibition of access and temporary use of the coastal area of ​​El Arenal is established, proceeding to initiate the processing of the corresponding files for the approval of the specific Safety and Rescue Plan of the entire maritime area with danger of detachment, in addition to processing for the permanent classification of beach use.

The measure implies that the coastal area of ​​El Arenal cannot be used either for the exercise of the bath or for recreational or sporting activities, either in the aquatic or terrestrial environment "as there is a serious danger to the safety or life of people" . From the area of ​​Works and Infrastructures, in collaboration with the Local Police, the signaling of prohibition of the passage in the different accesses to the beach will be renewed.

In parallel, the City Council plans to entrust the University of La Laguna with a geological study of the cliff, to analyze its state and slope stability, determine the factors that are causing these landslides and, where appropriate, establish preventive measures to avoid them. In this sense, the City Council expects to have administrations to carry out the necessary tasks of consolidation of the cliff.
