Most everyone when they think of a big earthquake/volcanoe event usually thinks of either 2 things, San Andreas fault/and Yellowstone caldera. I have a tendancy to think of those myself, and then I come across something like this and think of El Hierro. Now this mentions El Golfo I remember that it has been said that if part of this vocano would break off and fall into the sea we could have a massive Japanese tsunami type tidal wave that would affect almost the whole of the east coast of America.
Are you prepared for any type natural/manmade event? I am as well as can be in a small one bedroom apt. with little storage space.
Update 17/09 17:05 UTC
- 84 earthquakes until 16:11 UTC
- Another 2 shallow quakes at 10 and 11 km , both in the El Golfo, Sabinosa area. The phenomena described in the last update is being confirmed with these quakes. The Sabinosa El Golfo area has become active again. We are however unsure whether IGN has deliberately omitted the quakes in this area when the strong swarm started. If this was not the case (what we should find very normal) then we can speak of a changing pattern.
And then we have something like this El Golfo, I admit never hearing of, but there is a theory I remember hearing about the possibility of volcanoes being linked together, because apparently there are two of them in the Canary Islands.
A devastating earthquake/volcanic eruption leading to a landslide in the Canary Islands may only leave US East Coast residents a 6 hour warning. With the recent earthquakes in the region picking up dramatically, the internet is going abuzz about the possiblities of a tsunami strike along the US East Coast.
