Another deadly window: El Hierro may be the last piece in the puzzle that shows Earth is in trouble again

33 year window of geological catastrophism (1783-1816): We’re back to another period of catastrophism similarly to what occurred on the planet 228 years ago. This period began with the most deadly eruption in modern history- the Laki volcanic fissure eruptions in Iceland. The 1783-1784 eruptions killed an estimated 6 to 7 million people across the globe from its volcanic fallout. Iceland sits over a magma plume. In 1793, El Hierro, which similarly sits over a magma plume, erupted as did the Unsen volcano in Japan which resulted in an landslide and tsunami which killed 15,000 people. 23 years later, Tambora erupted in Indonesia and killed 92,000. Clearly, these periods of hyper-volcanism means volcanoes can be stirred across the planet in concert with earthquakes. Large destructive earthquakes accompanied the volcanism during this turbulent 33 year period. The 1797 Riobamba 8.3 earthquake in Ecuador killed 41,000. A 8.4 earthquakes struck Sumatra, Indonesia the same year. In 1802, a 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck Romania, and in 1810, a 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck Crete and killed 2000 people. Between 1811-1812, a 8.1, 7.8, and a 8.0 magnitude earthquake all struck the New Madrid fault zone in the U.S. and in 1812, Santa Barbara and Wrightwood, California were both hit by 7.0 magnitude earthquakes.The Extinction Protocol

    Am I reading too much into this or does your remark “last piece of the puzzle” mean this could be “the straw that breaks the camel’s back” if El Heirron erupts?


    • I think we are back in another period of geological catastrophism and this one may be the worst of the events if it is indeed the ending period foretold by all the world’s prophecies. The problem is when these events all began unwinding in earnest, they will began overlapping or cascading into a global planetary crisis event so it could be hard to rationalize what is exactly happening to the world in such a climate of chaos. That the magma plumes, Iceland, El Hierro, Hawaii Kilauea, Etna, and S. Java all seem to be acting up at the same time, in this time period, is a grave cause for concern.

      peace and blessings,

        Thanks for elaborating Alvin. Guess I wasn’t misunderstanding. Your new comments remind me of something I heard some time ago.

        If you put a frog in a pot of boiling water it jumps out. But if you put it in cool water and heat it gradually, the frog stays in the pot because it will not realize what is happening until it’s too late. There sure seems to be way too many frogs in the world.

        I appreciate your continued update as I am preparing in all manners for my family and loved ones everyday. You help keep me focused with information that provides a direction in planning, as best as one can.Always starting everyday, no matter how prepared my home is or not,knowing God is in control and to enjoy each moment I have. These trials will come, they have always been a part of human history and we have it in us to see it thru. God Bless,R


      • Thanks Radiogirl. I’m delighted you find the site to be a beacon in these uncertain times. God is in control and that’s more comforting than a soft pillow.

        God bless,

        All these factors are now constellating together. Rapidly. It’s not the Earth that’s in trouble.

        It’s the inhabitants. The planet will do fine. Always has.

        Prepare Accordingly

        Just fyi, ancient african tribe called one of these islands “wormwood”. It’s the exact same word/spelling in Revelations. Research and verify. A massive explosion can send part of the island far up in the air so that when it falls it’s falling from heaven. Any space off the ground is heaven.


  2. Kaos says:

    Refering to the the eruptions (plural) of 1783-1784 I presume wasn’t 1 giant super eruption??
    Or was it like today’s vocanic activity.. Many little/medium eruptions followed by a big one??

    What caused the fallout? Do you know?

    I could use google but your a legend in my book alvin and it addresses a question to all EP lovers 🙂

    7 million people back in them days would be treble today with the amount of folks living on terra therma



    • Kaos, here is an excellent video on Iceland’s past volcanic history that Luisport posted earlier this month that covers that.

      I think will give you a great overview of the 100 million tons of sulphur dioxide gas that oozed up from the Laki volcanic eruption. Thanks for your support and blessings, friend.



  3. Wiseguy says:

    Wonder if they also had climate anomalies like we have right now. Snow storm, draught, tornadoes, flood, heatwaves, etc. Was it the small glacial period at that time or it was earlier.

    Alvin, are you referring to Christ’s return, the end of all things, or both?

    231 AVCAN NOTE – EARTHQUAKE SWARM-VOLCANIC – IRON ISLAND – SEPTEMBER 30, 2011-12:00 h peninsular – Seismic activity has continued to moderate, slightly lower yesterday and concentrated in marine versus Julan, with a moving south from yesterday evening. The magnitude between 3.7 and 1.0. New earthquakes 95. Depth between 13 and 17km (and one to 12 and other two to 18 and 27km). Before yesterday 158. Yesterday 149. Today they are 62 and in total 8736 earthquakes located by the IGN from 9:00 h on July 19, 2011 and detected (Enrique). Today 30, the recent seismic activity is kept off the Julan but remains highly concentrated, which runs south entrance of more magmatic material in the same area since September 20. You see something of … more diffuse activity yesterday to the SE and north. Today many events are missing below 1.5 I guess the anger IGN setting. In purple are the three earthquakes greater than or equal to 3.0 of the September 30, 2011, today, to give an idea of where the greatest concentration seismic activity in the SEP 28TH EARTHQUAKE. – Blue (15) 8 EARTHQUAKE DAY 29 SEP. – Orange (149) EARTHQUAKE DAY 30 SEP. – Green (62) In the evolution of the depths you can see the trend change since yesterday at noon, where they stopped and began to climb down, still well below the time between 13 and 17 km. In the graph of energies released accumulated, it shows a decrease of the energy released, but continuous intrusion, what worries me, because yesterday released energy in a linear fashion may be that is building up energy for the next threshold, so that is not disposable we could have some stronger quake 4.2 – 4.5 or stronger today if today we have no earthquakes above 3.3, so if tomorrow we without it, may be more intense (4.5-5.0). If there is an earthquake of 4.2 or higher, the red traffic light must pass, since a quake of this magnitude can trigger mechanism and that the magma began to move toward the surface for a possible eruption in less than 24-120h. But we will have to confirm with the subsequent seismicity or you will see the tremors. Hopefully not so and that the system is relaxed, because that on the other possibility., We shall see. I leave the details of the last 4 days.

    Hierro Volcano, Canary Islands
    Earthquakes continue at Hierro volcano in the Canary Islands. Since July 2011 over 8000 small earthquakes have been recorded at the volcano. Yesterday an earthquake of magnitude 3.5 occurred. Deformation has increased significantly at the volcano in the past week. On 23rd September 2011 the alert level was raised to YELLOW. Some residents have been evacuated from near the volcano. Earthquakes are occurring in the northwest of the island at the location of a landslide that created a 100 metre high tsunami about 50,000 years ago. A major debris avalanche occurred on the northern flank of Hierro Island, dated about 13,000 years ago. It had a width of 15 km and a scarp height of 1000 m. The landslide deposited 150-180 cubic km of debris on the seafloor down to a depth of 3000 m.

    Alvin, in the movie 2012 a series of natural disasters and earthquakes globally begin cascading triggering the end of the world. Do you think this real life scenario is shaping up to be like what happened in the movie? If you have not seen the movie let me know.


    • If you’re asking if the cascading effect will be the same- It probably will be worst because of the massive loss of life involved when these outbreak episodes start hitting densely populated regions and one country is too severely incapacitated to aid another. How do you relocate millions of people from a disaster prone area? The answer is we can’t….


  16. Brandon says:

    Alvin, what a tragedy. As horrible as millions of deaths would be the human race would be spared. Life will go on.

    What is happening in El Hierro volcano
    Posted on September 30, 2011 by Jón Frímann
    This is a special blog post about the volcano El Hierro in the Canary Islands. The resons for this blog posts are those that this activity is interesting and there is not a lot happening at the moment in Iceland due to bad weather (nothing gets recorded in this bad weather).

    Currently El Hierro volcano is a phase that I personally call a magma intrusion phase (I have no other word for it). But that means that magma is currently coming from a depth, that is more then 20 km below the volcano and up the crust directly below the volcano. It is impossible to know how long this phase is going to last. As a example this phase for Eyjafjallajökull volcano lasted for good part of 17 years (with some breaks). When the pressure is high enough in the sill that is now forming in El Hierro the magma is going to break up the surface.

    The magma is flowing up into the volcano at around 30 degree angle from the depth of more then 20 km. When a new magma injection starts, a new earthquake swarm starts in El Hierro. This magma injections are different in size and length. But as more magma collects into the bedrock in El Hierro the stronger earthquakes are going to take place. But this increases the pressure on the rock and inside the magma chamber that is now forming and can clearly been seen with the earthquake pattern. Copyright of this picture belongs to Instituto Geográfico Nacional.

    I did see a picture that was made on Eruptions blog that did show his clearly, both the feeder channel of the magma and the magma chamber that is currently in the making. It seems that magma inflow into the new magma chamber or the sill in El Hierro is stable at the moment. But I base that view on the constant earthquakes that are currently taking place. But this magma inflow seems to have been stable since 16 July, 2011 when the magma started to push upwards into El Hierro.

    Earthquakes that signal new inflow of magma do not need to be strong in size. But they are deep, with the most depth around 20 km. But the crust in this area is around 10 to 26 km thick. As this is a ocean crust in this area. But the Canary islands are the thickest crustal part in the area. But it is also important to notice that the magma chamber or the sill is expanding in all directions, not just upwards. That in it self is also going to create deep earthquakes. But those earthquakes should remain a bit outside the main area of the deep earthquakes that are currently taking place in the area.

    I am expecting a lot more earthquake activity when or if El Hierro starts erupting. But when that might happen impossible to know for the moment. The only thing that can be done is too wait and see what happens.


  18. luisport says:

    In TVE1 they say that in this moment there are the 3 signs of an eruption, the earthquakes, ground deformation and gases anomaly. What do you say about this?

  20. Folks judging from watching the stars year 2012 plus couple of years uncertainty can be
    interpreted as gravitational compression of our galaxy on all planets in solar system and our
    planet too. Gravitational compression heats up the cores of planets, creates havoc with the
    sun, intensifies volcanic activity, warms up the water in the oceans and also blocks the sun rays
    so we feel it as chilling weather. Unfortuntely el Hiero can create a massive landslide and
    washing out catastrofically many coast lines of Atlantic ocean. All symptoms are showing up
    now but people are either blind or deaf. Observing the Orion constellation and star of Sirius,
    they are moving up northward and are somewhat distorted optically by gravitational fields
    of galactic plane we are passing by slowly. God, creator the all things in universe, the matrix
    of knowledge gave us the knowledge to make good to the world but look folks what we are
    doing, wars, greed, drones, lies, contaminated planet, even extraterrestrials couldn’t clean up
    this mess in short time of 1000 years but our bodies are not only a mass, the are also waves
    of electromagnetic interactions, that’s the souls interpretation. Life is enigma between the
    time of beginning and the end. Life is a test if we are valuable creatures to transcend to next
    level or fell down into the abyss of self destruction.

    This is an amazing website. Thank you so much for this very valuable information, I had heard just a little bit of this, enough to be concerned, but now I have a much better understanding. God help us all in the days that are ahead of us.


  22. dom says:

    A new book argues that the threat of a mega-tsunami to the east coast of the U.S generated by the collapse of a volcano in the Canary Islands is predicted in the Book of Revelation, which mentions a “huge mountain, burning with fire” being thrown into the sea (Rev 8:9).
