There was another one live on YouTube this morning, in Iceland, although positively League One compared to La Palma.

Interestingly (or not), basically all of La Palma is volcano it's structure is permiated with sea water so at some point in the next 5 or so eruptions there is a good chance that half the island will slip into the sea and send a 1000ft high tsunami towards the entire eastern seaboard of the USA.

It'll be like Lituya Bay on a massive scale.

Awful isn't it. These things run on geological timescales they're so damn slow

Ouch! That could potentially be this eruption or they are confident it isn't?

The sound is extra impressive on top of the already impressive pictures. I love stuff like this. Geological/natural hazards used to be my thing and work for quite a few years, so I always get over excited at death and destruction on a massive scale(!). Mother nature is so incredibly powerful and majestic.

Always found it bizarre, people building houses in close proximity to a volcano, bit like tornado alley, another place I tend not to look at on right move.. some cracking footage on the news earlier of massive lava blocks floating along..

It is much like why people have built houses on flood plains - it is the most fertile soil you can find - healthy top soil is more valuable than gold. In the future it may be the best place to live for survivial.

Volcanic soil is very fertile and the landscape often spectacular. I am sure there is not always a lot of choice where some people live.

To continue to build along fault lines seems crass but when you already have a city there I suppose it isn't practical to stop it expanding.

I guess some people either don't see the risk or balance it as an unlikely occurrence.

Reminds me of obsessively watching the oil spilling into the sea after Deep Water Horizon. But this one is prettier!

Yeah, not only fertile soil but also many years between eruptions. We're bored of wearing masks and socially distancing after 18 months, so it doesn't take a huge leap to realise why people would move back into geologically hazardous areas after a decade or two.

This was the last thing I worked on before hanging up my practitioner boots (not my video). A massive landslide (collapse of a valley side really) blocking the Hunza Valley in Pakistan, and cutting off one of their main tourist areas and trading routes to China. As a result there's now a 15 mile long lake behind this natural dam, which ironically given this was a bad thing has now become a tourist attraction (it does look lovely in fairness).



Picture of the lake (the last lodge I stayed in is under that somewhere):


Anyway, I'm hijacking the thread.

Going back many years you would be correct.. now days it’s mainly down to developers making shed loads of money from otherwise unsellable land..

We've been to La Palma a couple of times. The holiday rep on both occasions told us one of the most interesting parts of his job was when he met confused people at La Palma airport, who thought they'd in fact booked a flight to Las Palmas on Tenerife. That wasn't too difficult to sort out as there'd be a local flight they could get.

More challenging were those who'd thought they were arriving at Palma in Mallorca, where they had accommodation booked and a car hired. They would have to fly to either Madrid or Barcelona to get to Mallorca. Curiously, he observed, by this point it was his fault. Not theirs for being illiterate.
