Tenerife volcano ALERT: Mount Teide WILL have MEGA ERUPTION after giant landslides

MOUNT TIEDE could erupt soon as scientists reveal the Tenerife rock could actually be a mega volcano.

Fears have been mounting in Tenerife that the volcano could be about to blow after 22 quakes hit the popular holiday spot over the weekend.

The biggest island in the Canaries was hit by a seismic swarm of 22 earthquakes between Saturday, October 28 and Tuesday from Mount Teide.

And new research has shown that left over magma from old volcanoes on the popular island could have come together to create a super volcano.

Giant landslides caused by volcano explosions pushes fiery magma through cracks in the earth’s crust to form a new volcano “of greater or equal size” to the previous one.

Mount Teide was formed from three landslides on the island.

There have been 20 of these landslides across the Canary Islands over a number of centuries, causing a whopping 150 cubic miles of earth to be shifted.

Standing at 12,000ft, Mount Teide is Spain’s highest peak.

Experts from the Volcanological Institute of the Canary Islands (Involcan) have sought to reassure worried locals through Facebook.

They said the small seismic swarm was similar to the other swarms recorded in Tenerife.

A swarm was reported in the tourist hotspot after 100 mini quakes from Mount Teide hit the island in our hours.

Scientists from Involcan said the characteristics of the seismic events reflected a relationship with the hydrothermal system, which has undergone a pressurisation process.

They said it was common in active volcanoes and 90 per cent of the time the quakes will disappear in the same way they occur.

The German Geoscience Research Centre (GFZ) has been studying the effects of landslides on volcanic islands, and will publish their full findings in Nature Communications scientific journal later this month.
