  • I meant the canaries in general, but statistically speaking Tenerife is just over the average for rumble (apparently). And statistics are hard to beat. Ask any hundred year old!

  • The earthquake near El Sauzel was on the 18th August 2012, located some 10km out to sea.

    There is NO abnormal volcanic activity on or around Mount Teide.

    To prove this you can access a full list of seismic activity in the Canaries region here...

     I check the sites daily as i have a passing interest in Volcanology.
     El Hierro is where the action is, it's been '' rumbling '' for well over a year now.

  • Hi Knightrider, maybe you can shed some light. Tenerife I thought (think I read (but who knows - could have dreamt it - proberely)) is thought to have volcanic activity about every hundred years or sooner, and the last one was 1900 and something at Garrachio. So I guess one should come shortly, as the actress said to the bishop.

  • The last eruption was in El Chinyero, near Santiago del Teide in 1909.
    Previous eruptions in Tenerife, have as you say, happened approx every 100 years or so.
    It is human nature to look for patterns in everything, but as volcanoes do not have access to calendars or clocks, they cannot be in any way predictable.
    Mount Teide has probably more monitor sensors than any other volcano in Spain, so if there is any increased activity it will be detected in an instant, which is intended to act as a warning of any future event.

    Mount Teide is classified as a decade volcano, but i worry more about being run over by a bus.(being driven by Lord Lucan)
