Title Is a 'mega-eruption' on the way in the Canary Islands? Scientists dismiss fears after 270 earthquakes rock a region near the active Teide volcano Media name/outlet Mail Online Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 8/05/18 Description Professor Mike Burton, chair in volcanology at the University of Manchester, told MailOnline: 'There's plenty of tectonic seismicity in the Canary Islands due to plate motion which doesn't directly produce volcanic activity, and there are some earthquake locations to the southeast of Tenerife which are consistent with this.
'Before an eruption on Tenerife or any of the other Canary Islands there would be clear precursory signals in seismicity, gas and ground deformation. These are not such signals.'
