4.1 magnitude earthquake shakes El Hierro, in Canary Islands
Posted on March 26, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol
March 26, 2013 – CANARY ISLANDS - An earthquake measuring 4.1 on the Richter scale shook El Hierro island in Spain’s Canaries on Monday, the strongest of hundreds of tremors which have plagued the island, which suffered an undersea volcanic eruption in 2011, Spain’s National Geographical Institute said Monday. The earthquake struck at 3:41 pm (1441 GMT) and its epicenter was in the Atlantic
Ocean about 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) west of the island, a spokesman for the institute said. It was measured at a depth of 16 kilometers and was preceded by another earthquake measuring 4.0 on the Richter scale. About 800 earthquakes have been recorded in El Hierro, which has about 10,000 inhabitants, since March 18, the spokesman added. The majority of the quakes have measured above 2.0 on the Richter but only a handful has been strong enough for people on the island to notice. In October 2011 an underwater volcano erupted off the coast of El Hierro, two days after an earthquake measuring 4.3 on the Richter scale rocked the island. El Hierro, which means “Iron” in Spanish, suffered thousands of earthquakes throughout much of 2011, only a few of them, prompting officials to briefly close a tunnel linking the island’s two main towns — Frontera and
Valverde — and evacuate dozens of people over fears of landslides. The Canary Islands are located off the northwestern coast of Africa. El Hierro, which has an area of just 267 square kilometers (103 square miles) is the westernmost of the seven islands of volcanic origin that make up the archipelago. The last eruption occurred off the Canary Islands, happened off Teneguia, Las Palamas, in 1971. –Global Post

March 26, 2013 – ICELAND – Icelandic police say seismic activity near the Hekla volcano has prompted them to declare an “uncertainty phase” — the lowest level of civil warning. Monitoring of the area in southern Iceland has been increased. Police advise people not to hike in the area, though it is not forbidden. Vidir Reynisson, the department manager for civil protection, said Tuesday that a swarm of earthquakes prompted the warning but are not necessarily a sign of pending eruption. Scientists worry that Hekla is overdue for an eruption; in recent decades it has erupted roughly every 10 years, most recently in 2000. Concern about seismic activity in the north Atlantic nation has grown since April 2010, when ash from the Eyjafjallajokul volcano grounded flights across Europe for days, disrupting travel for 10 million people. –CTV News
Peruvian volcano on verge of eruption: Peruvian scientists have warned that Arequipa’s Sabancaya Volcano is currently in a pre-eruptive stage. According to Domingo Ramos, head of volcano monitoring at Peru’s Geological, Mining and Metallurgical Institute (Ingemmet), Sabancaya’s activity has led the agency to issue a yellow alert. “We have already talked with local authorities so that they can warn the nearby population, about the volcano’s status, and how to prepare before an eventual eruption,” Ramos said according to the daily. Sabancaya, he said, is currently emitting large plumes of smoke, and is seeing between 300 and 500 seismic movements, Peruthisweek.com reported quoting Peru21. Fredy Apaza, a chemist at Ingemmet, said the signs of continuous gas release indicates that magma is rising to the surface, but said the agency was not yet able to estimate how much magma could be on the way. “That’s why Ingemmet has installed volcanological equipment and telemetry in strategic points at Sabancaya, we expect results within 15 days,” he said. -Andina

Nah we'll keep going, a few or more may get snuffed once in a while by both man and nature

yup.gif For way longer than most can dream of. Not to mention intelligent offshoots of our species have existed for longer than mainstream archeology cares, or dares admit.

True that. There's always some bastard who's in the right place at the right time. We're an adaptable species. For better and for worse.

Yup. And the most vile of the survivors will brainwash the strongest into being his lackey and they will use criminal acts and fear to coerce the rest of the survivors into doing whatever they want.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss...

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
