The Living Force
People are leaving their houses. At the back the "dragon" in mad, mad.
It is heard like that, very impressive to keep hearing that constantly while trying to get out of there!People are leaving their houses. At the back the "dragon" in mad, mad.
If it wouldn't be an emergency... it sounds relaxing indeed.Here the beast that seems to sleep. When I hear the sound of it it is relaxing. It is like listening to the breath of a dragon sleeping. For now. Also it reminds me the sound on the beach. Like a pulse. Like the pulse of the ocean.
Usually I like to hear the sounds of nature, they relax me enormously. Rain, wind, tempests, even the sound of wolves make me feel in peace. The sound of a volcano is also a sound of nature, and very interesting to hear, it is like the sound of an animal, more than that, it is the sound of earth and of earth that is angry. Evidently I am not there in danger to loose my house. Or after loosing my house.It is heard like that, very impressive to keep hearing that constantly while trying to get out of there!
If it wouldn't be an emergency... it sounds relaxing indeed.
Its better to perceive it in that way, I think.
Here more images from La Palma, a real mess and destruction on this part of the island.
I read this morning that the airport open this morning.
The Professor Manuel Calvo mentioned about the Lanzarote's eruption at 1730 that lasts 6 years... Had been reading at tweeter that any video of houses destruction had been censored supposdely because in consideration of owner's people houses that had been destroyed. One of them was on an interview, she was overwhelmed to know about it on social Media reports.A simple summary and projection of what is currently happening in La Palma, with a small foray into the magnetic field.

The 1730–1736 eruption of Lanzarote, Canary Islands: a long, high-magnitude basaltic fissure
The eruption that took place in Lanzarote between 1 September 1730 and 16 April 1736 differs from the normal style of the historic (last 500 years) volcanism of the Canary Islands. The duration (2,056 days), extent (200 km2), volume of materials emitted (3–5 km3) and the evolution of magmas from extremely SiO2-undersaturated lavas (melanephelinites) towards olivine tholeiite compositions are quite unique in the historic trend of volcanism in the Archipelago, and, apparently, even in the Earth's historical record of basaltic fissure eruptions. However, no specific work has been undertaken until now to attempt the reconstruction of this eruption. We present here a detailed reconstruction of the eruption, based on field observations and data provided by eye-witness accounts, one of which is a hitherto unpublished manuscript. The “anomalous” nature of this eruption in relation to the historic volcanism of the Canaries—especially the continuation of the eruption after the initial phase was completed (some 3–4 months, the maximum duration of any historic eruption in the Canarian Archipelago)—might be the result of upward movement of the magma generation front to an intermediate depth along a large fracture.
