That's according to marine geologists studying ancient landslides in the area In typical Canary Island landslides, chunks of land break off in bits, not in one dramatic plunge, they claim. This contradicts previous warnings that an Isle of Man-sized chunk of land could fall off the island of La Palma into the sea, causing a mega-tsunami. However, the researchers behind the original claim are sticking to their guns, pointing to evidence of catastrophic past events in the region. Back inscientists at University College London published a paper about a volcano on the island of La Palma.

Barreto said the worst affected areas were the municipality of El Paso, where almost 5, acres of land have been burned, followed by Fuencaliente 4, acresMazo 2, acres and Los Llanos de Aridane 70 acres.
Barreto said firefighters had put in more than 6, hours of service over the past six days, adding that more than 1, loads of water had been dropped over the flames. On Saturday, a year-old German man being investigated for causing the fire through gross negligence appeared in court and was remanded in custody.
The man, who is thought to have been living in a cave on the island, had told police that he had started the fire by accident after burning his used toilet paper in an area full of pine needles and other dry vegetation. Portugal is also battling its annual wildfire season, with more than 4, firefighters tackling hundreds of blazes across the country.
The National Civil Protection Authority said that by Monday afternoon, almost 1, vehicles and 32 water-dumping aircraft had been deployed at wildfires, some of which had been burning for days.Back in , scientists at University College London published a paper about a volcano on the island of La Palma.
They predicted that, if it erupted, the volcano could cause a catastrophic landslide in which a chunk of land the size of the Isle of Man would fall into the ocean.

The reason: she was years old. Concepción was born in in the district El Jardín in Los Realejos and moved into her apartment in the Avenida de Los Remedios in Realejo Alto when she was quite young.
