The activity of the volcano is at the center of the watch of scientists from around the world, where it is believed that a possible collapse of its western face will trigger a tsunami in the Atlantic Ocean. In a worst-case scenario, scientists predict that the tsunami will threaten the security of northern Brazil, French Guiana, the eastern and southern coasts of the United States, Western Sahara and Mauritania.
On Tuesday, volcanologist from the National Geographic Institute (IGN) in Madrid, Alicia Felpto, explained in an interview with the Madrid daily Publico that an analysis of previous volcanic eruptions in the Canary Islands showed that the eruption could last up to 84 days. “Fires resulting from the eruption of the volcano pose at present the greatest threat,” Flipto warned, noting that the temperature of the magma emerging from the volcano reaches 1,000 degrees Celsius.
Magda Gesler: I’m safe
This situation alarmed Magda Gesler, who has been linked to Spain for years and who recently visited San Sebastian, where the following episodes of the tenth edition of “MasterChef” were filmed. The restaurateur and star of the “Kitchen Revolution” posted a video on her social channels, showing the tragedy of the residents of La Palma. In an interview with tvn24.pl, Gessler said that she has not visited the Canary Islands in recent weeks, although she owns a house on one of the islands.
– I was recently with the production of “MasterChef” in the Basque Country, in San Sebastian. I was safe the whole time. However, I posted a video I got from La Palma because I’m terrified of what’s going on there. After all, there has been talk for years about the danger of the megatsunami, which will have dire consequences on both sides of the Atlantic, Geisler explained.
– I am very closely connected with Spain, especially Fuerteventura. A friend of mine works in Lanzarote, the only pole holding the position of director of one of the best Spanish hospitals – she added.
