Within the past 24 hours, Tenerife experienced heightened seismic activity, primarily concentrated on the west coast of the island, according to a report by the National Geographic Institute (IGN).

A total of more than 20 earthquakes were recorded, registering magnitudes between 1.3 and 1.8 on the Richter Scale, occurring at depths ranging from 30 to 46 kilometres.

Despite the attention drawn to this series of seismic events, experts clarify that the relatively small size of these tremors does not signify a significant shift in the volcanic activity on the island.

Fortunately, there have been no reported damages or major consequences resulting from these earthquakes. However, residents in the southwest of Tenerife, particularly around Adeje and Arona, reported hearing a notable rumbling sound at approximately 8.45 am on Sunday morning, lasting around 30 seconds.

The IGN will continue its analysis of this earthquake sequence to gather more detailed information and will remain vigilant for any further developments.

The strongest tremor during the weekend was recorded at a magnitude of 2.2 on the Richter scale, occurring at a depth of 4 kilometers between Tenerife and Gran Canaria, precisely at the site of the Enmedio volcano.
