[VOLCANO] Earthquake activity below El Hierro volcano, Canary Islands, Spain
Recently El Hierro volcano of the Canary Islands has been experiencing a seismic swarm beneath it, which as of yesterday reached to over 700 events.

Most of these events have been at Magnitudes of around 2 (+/-0.5) and are clustered beneath El Hierro whilst the depths of these earthquakes have been roughly between 9 and 16 km for the most part, with the exception of a few shallower and deeper quakes, the shallowest of which has been 4 km.
If we look at these earthquakes in two plots here [link to www.volcano-blog.com] we can see the clustering of these earthquakes is mainly confined to an oval area at 10 km depth.

El Hierro is a broadly basaltic volcano which might have been active in 1793 although this is uncertain.

This could be a sign of magma moving around but does not have to mean it will erupt soon.

Thanks OP for the link. What connection, if any, is there to the other volcano in the Canaries, i.e. the dangerous one shown on the Discovery channel? Could one set off the other?
