The Daily Volcano Quote: Azores too volcanic for telegraph 6 July 2011

Posted by admin in daily volcano quote.

We need say nothing of the Azores. Their volcanic character is so notorious, they have given so many oft repeated warnings, in the shape of short lived islands, the jets of volcanic fire, as well as in the fearful destruction of towns and changes in the surface of the land, that the advocates of ocean telegraphy evince no desire to approach them with a cable, preferring to adopt a very respectful distance from such company. But, alas, how far must they be left? for we are told that the volcanic fires of Iceland may be reasonably connected with those of the Azores.
