    I dated these videos so no one got confused….
    The most current is very concerning!

    No…the older video must be what you referring to. The one published on Sept.13, 2021 doesn’t have old comments. You might have confused them?

    Yes. It was one of the other videos.
    Yes. The local news would be in Spanish. Some people here speak Spanish.

    Reading various comments on youtube, locals don't seem especially worried. There seem to be differing opinions about the likelihood of a mega tsunami.

    It's always good to know where the highest ground is near you and work out a good fast route to get there. It does not cost a cent and only takes a few minutes. It can't hurt.

    One thing I have noticed in the past is how very,very slow people are to react to emergencies before clearing out. They want to pack their egg cups and Grandma's china cups and what not. :) But you have to get out ahead of the rush.

    Say you do head for high ground and nothing happens, what harm can it do? It would be a nice day out in the hills.:)

    Whatever about the egg cups, I would stuff the car boot with canned food, a duvet and pillow.

    The survivalists have a thing called a bug out bag.

    Locals might not always be the best judges in these situations. It is not easy to come to terms with personal catastrophe and perhaps the temptation is to deny an imminent upending of one's existence. Surely, the residents of Pompeii had sufficient warning of disaster, but it would have been too inconvenient to get the hell out of there.

    I'll drive up to the Sally Gap or Glendalough and wait 'til the tide goes out. Duvet, pillow and tinned food should be enough to see me through.

    If the tsunami does happen, we'll only get a few hours' notice. The water could be a few miles offshore before we get any warning.

    The approved prophecies consist of one suggesting that Ireland will be flooded. In such a circumstance, the survivors might envy the dead. Our spiritual safety should perhaps take priority over our physical security.

    You're showing your age..the Smart Phone for Videoing for Face Book? :) What good the End of Ireland if you've no Smart Phone to catch it?

    Glendalough, the perfect setting for closing the curtains.

    Heaven already.:)

    Yes, I thought that was something too…their logic being no one will survive anyhow so why cause a panic. But if this is out now, people can at least make a decision to move inland for awhile. I’d want the choice.

    Yes, I lean towards this logic myself. They may also what to avoid the inevitable chaos preparing if it’s a false alarm, but one needs to error on the side of caution. I know I’d be at confession if given the chance. In the end, it will matter more than anything.
    I guess this holds my attention as much as it does because of the prophecies relating to this for years….if you have faith you can’t help but be concerned…lmo.

    Authorities warn of possible volcanic eruption on Canary Island of La Palma
    Since September 11, more than 4,200 tremors have been recorded in the area near Teneguía volcano, and they are reportedly growing in intensity

    In October 2011, following weeks of intense seismic activity, an underwater volcano erupted off the coast of El Hierro in Spain’s Canary Islands. Ten years later, the nearby island of La Palma appears to be facing the same situation. In the past few days, more than 4,200 tremors have been recorded and a ground deformation indicates that magma is bubbling beneath the surface.

    The team of experts monitoring the phenomenon, the Volcano Risk Prevention Plan (Pevolca), says it is possible that this magma could cause a volcanic eruption on the surface in the next few days or weeks. But while the process has intensified, there are no clear signs of an imminent eruption. For this reason, Pevolca decided on Tuesday to elevate the risk of a volcanic eruption to yellow – the second-highest in the three-tiered system.

    “We cannot make a short-term forecast,” warned María José Blanco, the director of the National Geographic Institute (IGN) in the Canary Islands. “But everything indicates that it will evolve into earthquakes of larger magnitudes that will be more intense and felt by the population.”

    The last eruption in La Palma took place in October 1971, when the Teneguía volcano spewed out lava for more than three weeks after a crack appeared in the south of the island. The situation remained calm until 2017, when seismic activity resumed. In the past few days, this activity has intensified with constant small tremors, known as an earthquake swarm, recorded a few kilometers from Teneguía in the Cumbre Vieja area, southeast of the island.

    This earthquake swarm began on September 11, and since then, more than 4,200 tremors have been detected. Nearly all have been of small magnitude, but on Wednesday there were four that measured more than 3 on the Richter scale. What’s more, the tremors are also becoming closer to the surface, which indicates that magma is looking to escape. While the first earthquakes were recorded at more than 20 kilometers below the surface, on Wednesday, they hit at a depth of between six and eight kilometers. Indeed 20 tremors were recorded at just three kilometers below the surface. Another sign of the pressure is that, in the area of the earthquake swarm, the island has swelled six centimeters – 4.5 centimeters on Wednesday alone.

    Blanco said that the phenomenon is “very powerful” compared with the situation in El Hierro 10 years ago: the tremors in La Palma have released as much energy in the space of three days as that released during the weeks of eruption in 2011. Nevertheless, Blanco said that an eruption was not “imminent” as the process is ongoing. “There still has not been a large earthquake that opens a path for the magma, which is at a depth of eight kilometers, which would cause tremors by breaking the Earth’s crust to reach the surface,” she explained.

    Authorities have called for calm, but have also asked the population to remain alert. The municipalities affected by the yellow warning issued on Tuesday are Fuencaliente, Los Llanos de Aridane, El Paso and Mazo.

    The Pevolca committee also warned that “earthquakes of larger intensity are to be expected.” The head of the government administration of La Palma, Mariano Hernández Zapata, said on Wednesday that he was not ruling out any fast changes in the situation that could lead to an eruption in the “short term.” “We are living on a volcanic island and [an eruption] is one of the options that could happen,” said Hernández, after speaking of the experience of Teneguía.

    Luca D’Auria, the head of the Volcano Monitoring Department at the Canary Islands Volcano Institute (Involcan), said that, based on what is known about the geological history of La Palma, “magma builds up in an area that is five kilometers below the surface before entering into an eruption.” “What’s most likely is that the magma has found a way toward the surface and it is very likely that it will end up reaching it,” he explained. According to D’Auria, the situation is evolving “very quickly” – faster than what was recorded in El Hierro in 2011, when earthquake swarms took place for weeks before the eruption. Although the expert admitted it could “amount to nothing,” he argued that it was likely that an eruption will happen in the areas being hit by earthquakes, “but we don’t know yet.”
