UPDATED 11:20 AM EDT -- Earthquake Swarm - La Palma - If Blows, Wipes Out US East Coast via Tsunami

A very significant earthquake swarm is taking place on an island off the west coast of Africa. This particular situation has been feared for decades becasue it could literally wipe out the ENTIRE U.S. East Coast.

The island of La Palma is part of the Canary Islands off the northwest coast of Africa. The scalable Google Map below shows its location:

The island was formed by eruptions from the Cumbre Vieja volcano.

La Palma earned the nickname “the beautiful island” — white sand beaches highlighted by black volcanic soil. An endless night sky filled with stars as far as the eye can see.

But beauty here is only skin deep.

Nestled on the western side of La Palma sits the Cumbre Vieja volcano, like a pot of water waiting to boil over. Its last big eruption was more than 50 years ago, but everyone knows it’s only a matter of time before it unleashes the beast inside.
