Reappearance of water vapour in La Orotava

teide

Just when you thought it was safe to go up in the mountains … (it is, honest), along comes this report, which appears to have got buried in all the carnaval razzmatazz and weather wobblies recently.

A team of experts has been studying the emission of water vapour being produced since the end of February in the area of Los Benijos in La Orotava, where the temperature surpassed 30 degrees centigrade.

Experts from the Canarian Volcanology Institute are asking for caution, because, they say, these emanations are *not always* accompanied by seismic activity.

The director of the Tenerife Institute of Renewable Energy, says it’s easier for these emissions to reappear than to appear for the first time, after confirming that they have the same characteristics as those which appeared during 2004 and prolonged for a year, creating a seismic crisis on the island of Tenerife.
