Indeed! that is the largest yet!! one or two are looking worried, many have left the island, but we never felt a thing.

No one was injured, there were a couple of landslides, but that happens more often when it rains.

Providing we have electricity, water, and plenty of beer I'm going nowhere, Links below

Who have left the island Hepa? Residents, natives, tourists?

Many of the German speaking residents have departed for Alpine pastures. Then there are those that are of a nervous disposition who have gone to stay with relatives in Tenerife.

Regarding tourists, some parties of walkers and scuba divers have cancelled due to the adverse publicity and sensationalism in the northern European press. However these numbers have been more than offset by the amount of emergency workers and scientific types that have arrived. Having said all that we don't get many tourists in the first place.

It gets more interesting. The boffins may have detected an underwater eruption, six miles off the southern coast and a mile deep. The fishing fleet has been ordered to return to port, the local wags in the ferreteria are saying that all the fish caught today came out out of the sea ready cooked,

Maybe the mystical island of San Borrondon is about to reappear, oooh! that will bring them in.

It has been confirmed, an eruption is happening between five and six miles south of the island in the ocean, believed 1000 metres in depth. No danger to the local population but Reuters report that the fish are not happy.

Mainly as a precaution, the most southerly town in Spain, La Restinga, on the island of El Hierro has been put on Red alert and partially evacuated. The President of the island Alpidio Armas has been advised of the possibility of the magnum making landfall, hence the red alert.

Saw a TV programme about it on Monday:

Repor - El Hierro, esperando el volcán Temporada 2010/2011 - RTVE.es

It certainly is an amazing island. The local people seem to be very pragmatic about what´s going on - business as usual (apart from the tunnel being closed).

There are now two eruptions in the Ocean just south of La Restinga. The whole population La Restinga has been evacuated including a party of nine English speaking tourists, Irish Canadian and English. We have had eight tremors today.

At the request of the Cabildo of El Hierro, we spent yesterday morning assisting with the English speaking evacuees, most who could not speak Spanish and I am pleased to say that they safely left the island with all their belongings on the afternoon ferry for Tenerife.

The Diving centre which was based in La Restinga has now re located to the main port, Puerto Estaca.

Apart for the influx of suited up government big Mesters, life here goes on as more or less as normal, we are thinking of venturing to the south to see what if any thing is to be seen in the ocean, but we shall let it develop first.

Here is a link from yesterday with the tourists.
