There is no reason for holidaymakers to cancel their trips to the paradise isle of Hawaii. That is the message from the Pacific island’s tourist board as plumes of steam and ash continue to bellow from the summit of Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanos. The volcano, said to have been continuously simmering since 1983, erupted violently last week, expelling lava flows that destroyed dozens of homes and buildings and prompted the evacuation of some 2,000 residents. A powerful earthquake shook the crater the next day. Where is Kilauea? The volcano, which tops out at 1,247m, is to the south-east of the largest of the five volcanic islands that make up Hawaii, known as the Big Island.

Boffins believe a huge amount of seismic activity in the past ten days could be sign that the volcanoes could be about to blow their tops.

The worst case scenario would be if there was a volcanic eruption at the nearby Mount Teide which is on Tenerife. It last erupted in 1909. The volcano in Teide National Park draws three million visitors a year but if it erupted holiday makers would have to flee the affected areas. The director of the National Seismic Network from Spain’s National Geographic Institute said the biggest quake reached a magnitude of 3.2 on the Richter scale at only about 35km from Puerto La Luz, Port of Las Palmas de Gran … [Read more...] about Volcano fears for Brit tourists after 270 earthquakes strike near holiday hotspots Tenerife and Gran Canaria in past 10 days
