The local spokeswoman´s words "‘These seismic movements are normal given that we are on a yellow alert and we have never seen a similar crisis’" were supposed to be reassuring ... !!!

Apparently El Hierro has 500 Volcano cones, but the big boy last went up in 1794, when the eruption lasted for a month. I'm guessing a similar one wouldn't be all that good for Tourism in the Canaries.

A storm in a teacup, we have had over 1100 tremors since July and it has taken the media all this time to find out about it.

They put out a yellow alert for hot weather, rain, wind, high waves, etc. ect. Not many people here are seriously worried, it is just a talking point, which we wouldn't have known about, had not more sophisticated equipment been installed.

Regarding a volcano, first I have heard about that, probably headlines to sell newspapers. The last one was 40 miles away in Fuencaliente, in 1971, on the island of La Palma, film footage is used for the tourist information D.V.D.

Apart from all that fuss, life goes on as normal, the sun is shining, a northerly trade breeze is blowing, and the experts don't seem to be too worried, Link below

Dear European Volcanoes,

Please don't erupt between now and the 10th of October. I'd really like my parents to be here for the wedding, and I don't want to deal with your silly ash clouds messing up things here.

Un saludo muy atento,
halydia

There will not be any eruptions during that period, I have it from the man upstairs. Also you are far too far away, 1336 miles, living up there near the Arctic Circle, it is the Polar Bears you should be worrying about

Have a good wedding. 10th of October is my eldest birthday, he will be 44, the old git

Just went for a swim up here in the arctic circle - it's not too cold yet!
Tell the man upstairs thanks for me, I really appreciate it.

87 tremors since 0100 today, two registered above 3 at 3.5 and 3.6 a few minutes ago. We felt nothing but the other Englishman said he felt one about 0930 but only momentarily.

Hold on to your hat Hepa!
Some parts of the island have been evacuated, schools are closed in one area and a tunnel has been closed to traffic.
Better to be safe than sorry...

No body is worrying, schools close here if it rains or if it is windy!

Here in the capital life is normal, save for the press dashing round like headless chickens, looking for the odd seismologist to interview.

53 people in a small area on the far side of the island have been evacuated for fear of landslides. The tunnel in question closes regularly because of falling rocks and people revert to the old road.
