The President of the Government of the Canary Islands, Angel Victor Torres, has launched this Tuesday a message of tranquility to the Canarian population, and especially to the inhabitants of La Palma, after the different seismic movements that have been detected since Saturday on the island, because “we are in the hands of experts”.
In statements to the media, Torres recalled that tomorrow the committee of the Volcanic Emergency Plan of the Canary Islands (Pevolca) will meet again and that scientists and experts are following all events “very closely”.
The National Geographic Institute (IGN) reported this Tuesday that during the first hours of the day more than a hundred seismic movements had been located on La Palma, one of them of magnitude 3.5, detected in the municipality of El Paso.
“We are in volcanic lands, this has happened in recent moments in our history and we have to see how it evolves,” Torres said, to later ensure that “if decisions have to be made, they will be made for the maximum safety of citizens.”
The president of the Canary Islands has acknowledged that he understands the “concern” of the population, on which the memory of the Teneguía volcano weighs, which erupted almost 50 years ago, “but I have to send a message of tranquility because we are in the hands of experts”, it is finished.
