The local INVOLCAN observatory recorded a weak elevated seismic activity at 01:39 local time today.
A series of hybrid low-frequency (long period) and volcano-tectonic (high frequency) swarms at 9-to-12 km depth has been located southwestern of Pico Viejo beneath the Teide volcano consisting of dozens to hundreds of small magnitude events.
Weak increase in the seismic activity may signalize magma migration under the surface that might eventually allow it to rise further. On the other hand, there is no ruled out to get magma remained at shallow levels without any eruptive activity.
The current registered seismic activity is happening in the same area as in 1980 associated with number of similar events.
