Aaaaand now we have Canary Island seismicity to keep an eye on.
The tsunami potential for this area has serious implications for all of North America's East Coast.
Latest earthquakes near La Palma volcano:

La Palma volcano (Canary Islands): strong seismic swarm suggests magma intruding at depth Mon, 13 Sep 2021, 09:31

A strong earthquake swarm started under the area of La Cumbre Vieja volcano in the southern part of the Island yesterday. So far, more than 350 tremors have been detected, including 14 quakes of magnitudes above 3.0 and 226 quakes between 2.0 and 2.9.
The strongest was a magnitude 3.4 event at 00.46 am local time this morning, which was felt by nearby residents.
Most earthquakes are at shallow depths around 8-12 km, suggesting that new magma is currently intruding into a reservoir under the volcano. Whether or not this might be leading up to new volcanic activity is impossible to say at this stage, as there seem not to be other signs of significant volcanic unrest at this stage. Similar earthquake swarms have occurred in the past as well, most recently in late Dec last year; however back then, the quakes were deeper (at around 30 km depth), which could indicate that magma has now risen higher in the volcano's underground storage systems.
La Cumbre Vieja volcano last erupted in 1971, and it is considered one of the most active volcanoes of the Canary Islands. The situation clearly merits close monitoring.

The more ice there is on Greenland, the more freshwater becomes available to melt off.

This addition comes 7 weeks earlier than the previous such record build just a year ago as this season begins with well above avg. ice already.

More perspective on La Palma and the Canaries. The tie to the LLSVP.

La Palma volcano (Canary Islands): likelihood of new volcanic eruption increases Tue, 14 Sep 2021, 19:00

The volcanic-seismic crisis continues to evolve. During the past 24 hours, earthquakes have been moving westwards and become shallower, the National Geographic Institute (IGN) reported.
This is likely reflecting continued magma intrusion and migration under the surface, supported also by continued deformation of the surface in the same area as the quakes. In places, the ground has been uplifted by 1.5 cm (almost one inch) already. The likelihood of an eruption has thus increased and the situation is being followed closely, although it is still far from certain whether it will or not result in a new eruption of the volcano.

More than 2000 earthquakes in 4 days
Since the beginning of the seismic series at 3:18 (UTC) on Sep 11th until 8:00 a.m. local time today, 2935 earthquakes have been detected in the southern area of ??the island of La Palma. Of these, 616 were large enough to have their epicenters and depths located. The largest quake occurred today at 06:00 a.m. with a provisional magnitude of 3.9. Anomalies in the seismic attenuation that currently exist under the island of La Palma caused the magnitude to have been overestimated, IGN reported, and revised the magnitude to only 3.5. At any rate, the larger quakes are now being frequently felt and reported by residents who are increasingly worried about the situation under their feet.

It's been a while since the blind squirrel found his last nut. Message 32699117
Being such a busy squirrel he's bound to stumble across one now and again.
Perspective for the value of this nut is put in high relief in conjunction with the latest output of "epiphany" from Peak Prosperity.


"...Enemy Action."


But then again, we already knew all of this.

What a rabbit hole this is .. wow. After getting my bearings down here I did some exploring and found a nugget from 2010 and what to look for as to forecasting a large CME event.

I can't seem post the video so here's the link ...

It could be very soon at La Palma:
La Palma volcano update: Earthquakes continue, becoming shallower Wed, 15 Sep 2021, 05:31

The seismic crisis continues with no signs of slowing. More than 250 quakes large enough to be located were detected during the past 24 hours. Minutes ago, a magnitude 3.2 event at only 4 km depth occurred and was felt.
This quake can be seen on the seismic trace as the large green signal.
