Summer 2019 weather: second yellow alert in a month for costeros around south Tenerife coastline

Summer 2019 weather: second yellow alert in a month for costeros around south Tenerife coastline

Updated 14 July: Aemet has issued another yellow alert for costeros (coastal phenomena) around the whole south Tenerife coast, the second this month (see graphic to the right, click to view full size). The alert, for gale force 7 NE winds bringing wild seas, is in place from 7pm tomorrow and remains in force throughout Tuesday too. Do take care in and near the sea, and please see HERE for official advice on how to stay safe in Tenerife’s waters.

Updated 2 July: It’s very telling that there has been nothing of import to post about in the past two months since I opened the Summer 2019 weather post, with temperatures below average for this time of year, and thankfully very little in the way of calimas to report about. This will continue for a while, meteorologists say, with a slight rise in temperature over coming days, but they have put in place a yellow alert for costeros (wild seas) brought by gale force 7 winds. The alert is in place today and tomorrow in south Tenerife.

Second motorcyclist dead in less than a week after accident on TF1 in Arico

In the second motorbike fatality in less than a week (see HERE), another rider has died in an accident last night. Emergency services say that they were called out at 11pm with reports that there was a motorcycle accident on the northbound carriageway of the TF1 in the Arico area, but that sadly on arrival ambulance crew could do nothing to assist the rider who had already died from the injuries he had sustained. He was declared dead at the scene, and at present no details have been released about him.

Seismic cluster underway near Vilaflor with “microtremor” off coast of Güímar

Seismic cluster underway near Vilaflor with “microtremor” off coast of Güímar

Seismologists say that a seismic cluster has been underway near Vilaflor for the last couple of days with 22 tremors registered, most microtremors, the largest of which was magnitude 2.2 at a depth of 11km north-east of Adeje: the remainder were between magnitudes 0.1 and 1.2 at depths of between 5 and 11 km. IGN has also recorded a mini-cluster of five microtremors off the Güímar coast with magnitudes of 1.5 at depths between 17 and 28km. Experts say they are continuing, as always, to monitor the situation but these clusters at this low level are normal and indeed desirable for an active volcano, and not something that anyone need be concerned about.

The biennial Agatha Christie Festival back in Puerto de la Cruz this November

The biennial Agatha Christie Festival back in Puerto de la Cruz this November

Every two years Puerto de la Cruz hosts an Agatha Christie Festival, and this year’s will be between 4 and 10 November, with the usual film screenings, enactments, talks and readings of her works and her relationship with Puerto de la Cruz. She stayed in the Hotel Taoro in the 1920s while writing The Man from the Sea, its setting the La Paz area itself. There’s a nice article from the last festival HERE in the Telegraph about the town and Christie herself. This is the seventh time the festival will have been held since its inception in 2007.

Police follow up report of meeting with Irishman Peter Wilson who remains the subject of an official missing persons investigation

Police follow up report of meeting with Irishman Peter Wilson who remains the subject of an official missing persons investigation

Updated 8 July: The Policía Nacional is investigating a report that Peter Wilson was met recently in a south Tenerife bar. Self-evidently, while their enquiries into the report are ongoing, Peter Wilson remains the subject of an official missing persons investigation: he is not, in other words, “found” as some reports have chosen to describe the latest sighting. If there is any further official information for dissemination from the police then clearly I will post about it.

Updated 10 April: Peter Wilson remains missing in Tenerife. Police were understandably reluctant, initially, to pull out all the stops since any independent adult with no mental disturbances or illness is entitled not to be found if they prefer not to be, and police have little to go on in any case when there is no evidence of an offence having occurred. Once a flight is missed, however, and documents and belongings are left in a hotel room whose booking has expired, they act. And they have been acting, along with Missing Persons organizations like SOSDesaparecidosCanarias: and now the story is in the Canarian press generally as well (eg Diario de Avisos HERE).

Peter has been missing now since 22 March, inexplicably with no trace or contact and with no apparent problems of any sort back home, or with family or work. If anyone has any information of any sort that could help locate him, or even just general information that would help reassure family, please contact any of the numbers on the poster, or call 112 for emergency services, or 091 for the National Police.

Original post 7 April: Irishman Peter Wilson arrived from Dublin on 22 March for a holiday in Malibu Park, opposite Aqualand in San Eugenio, and has not been seen since the night after his arrival. He is 33 years old, 1.72m tall, and with dark hair; he also has distinctive tattoos on his arm of a clock and roses. If anyone can help locate him please call the numbers on the poster, or 112 for emergency services or 091 for the National Police.

Police make arrest in case of the taxi driver whose body was found in the garage of his San Isidro home

Police make arrest in case of the taxi driver whose body was found in the garage of his San Isidro home

Updated 8 July: Police arrested a south-American man over the weekend on suspicion of being involved in the death of the taxi driver whose body was found in the garage of his home in San Isidro. The  case is sub judice and so no further details are currently available as the investigation continues.

Updated 4 July: The body found in a dwelling in the centre of San Isidro yesterday has been confirmed to be that of a 64-year-old Adeje taxi driver who is said to have died after being struck and stabbed several times around the head and face. Police say that the case now remains under investigation but one hypothesis is that of a robbery that went wrong.     

Original post 3 July: Police say that they are investigating the sad discovery overnight of the body of a man in a San Isidro house. The Guardia Civil says that the body was found in the dwelling’s garage, and that initial indications suggest the man suffered a violent death. The Judicial Police Unit will be clarifying the facts in due course as part of the investigation.
