Our last alert was issued on August 30th. Since that time, our concerns over the Virgin Island earthquake swarms have NOT abated. The Virgin Islands continue to have swarms of earthquakes daily in the 2.5 to 4.5 magnitude range. However, recent significant quakes along the mid-Atlantic ridge have made these concerns a little more serious for the folks on the east coast, especially from North Carolina to Florida.
There are several factors coming together that concern us enough we are issuing this status update. Our concern still focuses on the Cumbre Vieja Volcano with a potential collapse and tsunami at La Palma, Canary Islands.
Factor #1 – The swarms of quakes in the Virgin Islands have continued unabated, indicating either significant plate movements or eruptions in deep underwater vents, indicating plate pressure and movements.
Factor#2 – The recent quakes along the mid-Atlantic ridge and the potential for increased seismic and volcanic activity. What we don’t have is a clear geological understanding of the East-West fault lines connecting the mid-Atlantic ridge to the seismically active regions both in the Virgin Islands and La Palma.
Factor#3 – There has been a significant increase in global seismic activity in the last 30 days. Patrick Geryl has made more than a causal relationship to this increase in seismic activity and solar flaring , which may be somehow related to quakes. He has been uncanningly accurate with his associated predictions for a significant period of time now, accurately predicting significant seismic events. His hypothesis suggests that when the planets align, we can expect increased solar flaring, and the solar flaring causes increased geomagnetic pressure on the tectonic plates. As such we are about to enter a phase of several significant alignments. Indeed a significant solar flare has erupted from the sun, is earth directed, and due to arrive tomorrow, October 8, 2012. In addition, there are more significant alignments due in the next two months.

Why our concern continues to focus on La Palma has to do specifically with recent studies suggesting that geological evidence for a future collapse of the Cumbre Vieja is absolute. A recent University of California study is, to say the least, sobering.
The issue is that the Cumbre Vieja Volcano on the Island of La Palma may experience a catastrophic failure of its west flank, dropping 150 to 500 km3 of rock into the sea. This would send not one, but a series of tsunamis west bound striking the areas of the US, as we outlined above. These tsunami pulses could range from 30-40 M to 5-10M in rapid succession within nine hours of the flank collapse. See below.
Therefore, we continue to advise our friends to keep watch and to make sure they have their “bug-out” bags at the ready. We wish to make clear we are NOT sounding any alarms, but only these elements seem to be combining in such a fashion it bears to be watched closely.
