The National Geographic Institute (IGN) located on the evening of this Monday at an interval of two hours a series of eleven earthquakes in the area of Arico, Tenerifeand.
Specifically, the seismic series occurred between 9:30 p.m. and 11:20 p.m. Went to a depth between 3 and 6 kilometers and with magnitudes (mbLg) between 0.0 and 1.0.
None of these earthquakes has been felt by the population, points out the IGN, which points out that although in that area of Tenerife there have been no grouped events in recent years, this type of activity “is to be expected” on active volcanic islands.
“It does not mean any change in the state of volcanic activity in Tenerife”
This seismic series, the IGN abounds, «does not mean a priori any change in the state of volcanic activity on the island due to the low number of events and its small size«.
In addition to the earthquakes in Tenerife, in the last few hours seismic activity has been recorded again in The Palm after several days of truce. None of them with a magnitude greater than 1.4.
