Hopefully this will be nothing but interesting to see in the end.
It's the first eruption since 1971. Locals have been evacuated. Looks a small enough eruption atm.
Is this not the volcano that scientists were suggesting that if a large enough chunk of it broke off during an eruption, it could basically cause a tsunami that would be far worse than the 2004 one in the Indian Ocean, and Ireland would be right in its path?
Looks like a small eruption. What’s the deal with the tsunami warnings tho? Is it a real threat?
Wasnt that on Tenerife ?

I heard a story that Florida was right in its path with an expected wave height of at least 300ft ( but that was from an American :D )
Yeah I heard east Us coast would be threatened. Would Ireland ?
Where's John Cusack when you need him.
Only Cork thankfully, nowhere important.
I'll take our grey skies and drizzle over this sort of stuff any day of the week thank you!
I really don't think most of our people realize just how incredibly fortunate we are to live on this island, and have none of these natural disasters to worry about. This is why I never moan about a bit of rain.

Will Spain be paying larger carbon taxes as a result?
"Question the narrative"
The eruption looks a good bit wider now than it did earlier. The lava is approaching isolated homes now. Still looks a small eruption but hard to tell on camera.
Another part just erupted on the live feed
Edit: might just be that a big plume of smoke happened rather than eruption as the camera hasn’t moved round.
A good bit more intense than earlier and lava is pouring out from various places. Hate to have a home down stream.
just back from Icelandic eruption, love to be heading off to this one, looks far more violent
Looks spectacular on the live stream atm.
Definitely one to watch.
Fcuk Putin. Glory to Ukraine!
According to some article in the Irish Times before, the South of the country would be fcuked, but you're talking about an extreme eruption where the island slides into the ocean causing some mega Tsunami. Dont think we're looking at that from media coverage at the moment.
This is a different volcano.
The one that scientists are worried about is Teide in Tenerife which is quite bigger than the one in La Palma.
It'll be the entire south coast and a decent portion of the west. Carraigtoohill or Croagh Patrick for the best and safest views.
Do NOT ask me how I define the terms "man", "woman", "male" or "female" when you reply to this post. You know the answer and it's probably irrelevant to the discussion :)
"Scientists". Same sort of talk about the la palma one. Mostly sensationalist nonsense. I'm in lanzarote at the moment though, so 'll try give yous a heads up if I can.
The super-tsunami theory was based on the western flank of Cumbre Vieja on La Palma sliding into the sea. Not Teide

I flew from GC to lanzarote yesterday no problems.
Ryanair to plan routes to our evolving planet's possible newly forming island
binter flights are dirt cheap between islands, considering going myself
How did you get out there without "science"?
You are right.
I had heard of the theory before and assumed that Teide, being nearly 2,000m taller, was the one that had potential for much more destruction.
a 4km fault developed separating western flank of cumbre vieja during the last eruption - so fears are that this could destabilise and fall into the ocean - so far theres no indication that will happen though. Looks as though this eruption has relieved the pressure?
What is the effect (or might be) of this eruption on the air quality? Might there be a concern with flying and particles getting into engines... such as grounded flights 11 yrs ago with the icelandic Volcano that affected Europe. When Mt Etna in Sicily spews forth the air in nearby town is nasty... is it sulphur smell? thinking of the holidaymakers in the nearby islands.
