I found the above El Hierro thread a little difficult to read.

However, from what i have gleened...of late there has been a lot of seismic activity under the island, parts of the island were evacuated this week due to potential of volcano erupting (last erupted 1790's?). I think as at today the evacuees have been allowed home.

Why people are worried about a potential disaster from this eruption, is due to nearby island La Palma having a fault line or split which, if there were an eruption could cause a massive landslide and tsunami. A tsunami big enough to make it to the US west coast.

I am wondering though, if it is El Hierro that is erupting...to what degree will it effect the fault line of La Palma?

I think this is what they are most afraid of:

El Hierro’s Volcanic/Seismic Past

El Hierro is situated in the most southwestern extreme of the Canaries. The island was formed after three successive eruptions, and consequent accumulations, the island emerged from the ocean as an imposing triangular pyramid crowned by a volcano more than 2,000 metres high.

The volcanic activity, principally at the convergence of the three ridges, resulted in the continual expansion of the island. A mere 50,000 years ago, as a result of seismic tremors which produced massive landslides, a giant piece of the island cracked off, crashed down into the ocean and scattered along the seabed. This landslide of more than 300km3 gave rise to the impressive amphitheatre of the El Golfo valley and at the same time caused a tsunami that most likely rose over 100 metres high and probably reached as far as the American coast.
