No activity in the arc and no tsunami

No activity in the arc and no tsunami

On Sunday, September 19, 2021, the Cumbre Vijay volcano, located on the island of La Palma, erupted. If the sides of the volcano are isolated, the theory of a tsunami with 50 meter waves is spreading on social networks. Does this explosion represent a danger to the West Indian arc?


Residents of La Palma Island in the Canary Islands have been in great panic and fear since yesterday (Sunday, September 19, 2021).

5,500 people were evacuated after the eruption of Cumbria Vijay volcano. Many houses were destroyed. It has been 50 years since this volcano became extinct.

Will this explosion represent a danger to the West Indian arc? There are rumors “Writer Michelle Colario would say“. It is currently flooding social networks.

Here and there we see that if the edges of this Kumbra Vija volcano split, waves of more than 50 meters would reach the West Indies.

There is no need to fear after this volcano erupts in the Canaries.

For social networks, if the edges of this volcano come out, it will conquer the West Indies.

This is the result of a study from 2001, but in the opinion of Jordan Corbio, Deputy Director of the Volcanology and Earthquake Observatory, it is not relevant at this time.

So do not panic, fear more than harm. Eventually, if part of the volcano split and returned to the sea, the latest estimate would be less than 80 cubic kilometers. Then we will be in the presence of waves below 2 meters, but nothing scary.
