Homes have been evacuated and roads closed on the southern-most Canary Island following a government-issued warning about a possible volcanic eruption. The southern tip of El Hierro was shaken by a 4.3-magnitude quake late on Saturday as an underwater volcano just off the coast started spewing matter some 60ft into the air. The island, which has 500 volcanic cones, has experienced more than 10,000 tremors in the past four months. Renewed fears of an eruption came as vast quantities of magma - the molten rock from just under the earth’s crust - began bubbling into the sea off the port of La Restinga.
