Since Terrible Explosion Begins (Oct 15) La Palma hit by Largest Earthquake & Possible Tsunami

U.S. Military Action – Oct 14, 2021

The Canary Island of La Palma was hit on Wednesday by an earthquake measuring 4.5 on the Richter scale, making it the largest detected in the region since the eruption of the new volcano began on September 19. According to Spain’s National Geographic Institute (IGN), the quake was recorded at a depth of 37 kilometers at around 1am, and was felt by residents on the island. It was one of more than 50 tremors to hit La Palma during the early hours of Wednesday. The earthquake was recorded just hours after another neighborhood on La Palma was forced to evacuate due to the advance of a lava tongue. The decision affected around 15 residents in an area of Los Llanos de Aridane, who were given until midnight to take everything they could – including their pets – from their homes, and travel to a meeting point at Campo de Lucha Camino León in Los Llanos de Aridane.
