Tenerife Volcano controversy

The  President of Tenerife called a press conference after a scientist from the CSIC Higher Council for Scientific Investigation had spoken of concerns about the Island’s vulnerability to a volcanic eruption. There had been some controversy because another scientist from the same organisation has said there is no risk.

The President said that the difference of opinions reinforced the need for a Volcanic Institute on the Canary Islands. During the press conference the President admitted that there could be a volcanic eruption during the next 50 years, he said that is to be expected on a volcanic island.

The last eruption in Tenerife on Mount Teide was El Chinero in 1909.
