MOUNT TIEDE could erupt soon as scientists reveal the Tenerife rock could actually be a mega volcano.
Fears have been mounting in Tenerife that the volcano could be about to blow after 22 quakes hit the popular holiday spot over the weekend.
The biggest island in the Canaries was hit by a seismic swarm of 22 earthquakes between Saturday, October 28 and Tuesday from Mount Teide.
And new research has shown that left over magma from old volcanoes on the popular island could have come together to create a super volcano.
Giant landslides caused by volcano explosions pushes fiery magma through cracks in the earth’s crust to form a new volcano “of greater or equal size” to the previous one.

After being hit with the strongest earthquake in 20 years, Western Montanans woke to the trembles of a 5.8 magnitude quake. Although the damage is not severe, many geological experts are now raising concerns of Yellowstone’s dormant super volcano. In the wake of this earthquake, fears have increased that it could be waking up.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported, with Reuters adding that the tremor was felt hundreds of miles away, from Missoula to Billings and some surrounding states. A swarm of over 1100 earthquakes recorded in the Yellowstone caldera over the past month, in conjunction with this recent quake in Montana has prompted scientists to voice concerns about the so far dormant Yellowstone “Supervolcano.”
The quake’s epicenter was about 6 miles south of Lincoln, originating from a depth of nearly 3 miles underground, according to a preliminary report from the U.S. Geological Service. Subsequently, the USGS recorded seven more tremors in the same area within an hour of the initial quake, which ranged in magnitude from 4.9 to 3.8.

Campi Flegrei is one of world’s most dangerous super volcanoes, and now scientists warn that it has reached critical phase and could erupt, which would mean apocalyptic consequences.
A super volcano is defined as a volcano that is able to sling more than than 1,000 cubic kilometers of mass into the atmosphere.
By comparison, one of the most violent eruptions in modern times, Karakatau in 1883, erupted with some 30 cubic kilometers “ejekta”.
The result of such large amounts of dust, ash and gas in the atmosphere are equivalent to a so-called nuclear winter: Damaged crops, food shortages, poisoning and general societal collapse.
Two days before Christmas Eve, a research report was published in the science magazine Nature Communications, where they do not hold back:
There are chances that Campi Flegrei is about to erupt. And even worse: It is possible that the dormant super volcano will go into a so-called critical phase.
The first, and perhaps biggest problem is that Campi Flegrei is located just off the city of Naples in Italy, and that around half a million people live more or less directly above the volcano.
