La Palma volcano (Canary Islands): strong seismic swarm suggests magma intruding at depth

swarm
A strong earthquake swarm started under the area of La Cumbre Vieja volcano in the southern part of the Island yesterday. So far, more than 350 tremors have been detected, including 14 quakes of magnitudes above 3.0 and 226 quakes between 2.0 and 2.9.

The strongest was a magnitude 3.4 event at 00.46 am local time this morning, which was felt by nearby residents.

Most earthquakes are at shallow depths around 8-12 km, suggesting that new magma is currently intruding into a reservoir under the volcano. Whether or not this might be leading up to new volcanic activity is impossible to say at this stage, as there seem not to be other signs of significant volcanic unrest at this stage. Similar earthquake swarms have occurred in the past as well, most recently in late Dec last year; however back then, the quakes were deeper (at around 30 km depth), which could indicate that magma has now risen higher in the volcano's underground storage systems.

La Cumbre Vieja volcano last erupted in 1971, and it is considered one of the most active volcanoes of the Canary Islands. The situation clearly merits close monitoring.

Argentina shaken by 6.2 magnitude earthquake

map quake
SAN ANTONIO DE LOS COBRES, Argentina- According to the U.S. Geological Survey, Argentina was shaken by an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.2 early Monday.

The quake also impacted nearby countries such as Bolivia, Chile, and Paraguay.

Preliminary data reveals the quake was occurred at a depth of about 180 km, and its strength may have been tempered by its depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms.

Experts say the quake was likely felt by many in the area but probably did not cause any injuries, deaths, or significant damage.

Mexico hit by powerful shallow 7.0-magnitude earthquake, killing at least one

Powerful 7.0 magnitude earthquake strikes southwestern Mexico

Powerful 7.0 magnitude earthquake strikes southwestern Mexico
A powerful earthquake has struck south-west Mexico near the beach resort of Acapulco, killing at least one man who was crushed by a falling post, and causing rock falls and damaging buildings.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) said a 7.0 magnitude quake struck 11 miles (18km) north-east of the resort of Acapulco, Guerrero, in the early hours of Wednesday sending people running into the street for safety.

The quake shook the hillsides around the resort, downing trees and pitching large boulders on to the road.

'Haiti is on its knees,' PM says as earthquake deaths top 2,100 & tens of thousands of families left homeless

Men remove debris from a destroyed building after Saturday's 7.2 magnitude quake, in Les Cayes, Haiti, August 17, 2021.
Haiti has recorded more than 2,100 deaths following a powerful earthquake that wounded more than 12,000 and destroyed tens of thousands of homes, while over 115,000 families displaced by the disaster continue to seek refuge.

The latest death toll was provided by the country's Civil Protection Agency on Wednesday night, now putting the figure at 2,189 people killed and 12,268 injured, also noting that more than 300 remain missing since the quake struck last Saturday.

In a video address earlier in the evening, Prime Minister Ariel Henry said the earthquake put Haiti "on its knees," also vowing in a tweet to "personally" ensure that help gets to those who need it while insisting that his government would not "repeat history on the mismanagement and coordination of aid."
The earthquake that devastated a large part of the south of the country proves once again our limits, and how fragile we are.

Comment: Since the last massive quake that hit Haiti in 2010, the Clinton Foundation and USAID destroyed Haiti even more. All the money from donations that were collected to rebuild Haiti was stolen by the Clinton's and Haiti became one big "slave camp" for the psychopathic "elite."

The last quake was just another nail in the coffin of devastated Haiti.

Tsunami warning issued after Pacific island of Vanuatu is rocked by 6.8 magnitude earthquake

The quake was triggered at a depth of 56 miles (91 km) and was about 12 miles (19 km) north-west of Port-Olry, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS)

An earthquake of magnitude 6.8 struck near the coast of Port-Olry, Vanuatu, Wednesday morning, triggering a tsunami warning for nearby areas.

The quake was triggered at a depth of 56 miles (91 km) and was about 12 miles (19 km) north-west of Port-Olry, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said hazardous waves were possible for coasts located within 300 km of the epicentre.

USGS had initially put the magnitude at 7.1 and the depth at 51 miles, but these figures were later revised.
