Surely nobody knows when and if there will be an eruption on land or submarine. So we can not estimate if any activity of the El Hierro volcanoes will have an negative impact on Teneriffe. I think there is enough distance between the two islands. The only problem would be if there would be a land slide that runs into the sea or if the ash effusions would stop air traffic. But until now there is no real danger.

If there is an eruption in the Canary Islands, will it produce waves or a tsunami on the Costas of Spain? There are no warning systems here so how would the population of Marbella, for instance, know that it's time to get to higher ground. There's nothing on the local radio about this. Gives me the shivers.
If El Hierro has a cataclysmic eruption and splits in two I'd be very worried. El Golfo bay is an indication of just how powerful an eruption can be. Spain, Africa and East Coast of US is very vulnerable to significant damage.
The not-existence of Tsunami warning systems is a general problem in Europe. Especially in the most dangerous areas where Tsunamis happened in historic times (Greece, Italy, Spain and even around the Northsea).
