Unprecedented activity

31 Jul 11 - "The total number of tremors recorded during the past two weeks has now exceeded 1,050," says this article by Mark Dunphy.

"The vast majority of the tremors have been recorded in the northwest of the 278.5-square-kilometre island at El Golfo, the location of a massive landslide that created a 100-metre (330-ft) high tsunami almost 50,000 years ago.

After meeting again on Friday, the Canary Islands Steering Committee and Volcanic Monitoring reported that it had stepped up its seismic monitoring operations to identify the source of the earthquakes.

"It remains unclear, however, if the unprecedented seismic activity on El Hierro is a precursor to a possible future increase in earthquake or volcanic activity."
