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.
Yes once a massive amount of magma begins moving to the surface it sort of becomes "inevitable" till it blows. It sounds like this volcano tends to erupt with force and violence as opposed to say Hawaii that is more peaceful and calm.
The earthquakes are literally showing where the magma is building pressure. This could be interesting
