Fears are growing that a volcano on the popular British tourist hotspot of Tenerife could be on the verge of erupting after the Spanish island was rocked by more than 20 earthquakes. The biggest island in the Canaries was hit by a seismic swarm of 22 earthquakes between Saturday, October 28 and Tuesday from Mount Teide. Vilaflor, a village in the south of Tenerife, was rocked by dozens of seismic movements of

low magnitude between 0.8 and 2.0, which struck 6 to 8km underground. The largest of tremors was registered as 1.4 on the Richter Scale and hit at 11.05am (local time) on Tuesday morning. Activity from Mount Teide, which boasts the highest summit in Spain, comes after La Palma was rocked by a flurry of earthquakes in October. CONTINUE
