Ecuadoran Volcano Erupts for the First Time Since the ’40s

 

ECUADOR WAS GREETED this morning with a coating of ash from Cotopaxi. This eruption would be its first since explosions rocked the volcano in 1940 and possibly 1942. Today’s eruption was quite small—two explosions that rained ash  on the southern edge of Quito. Climbers on Cotopaxi heard the explosions in the early morning hours, both of which happened after earthquake swarms over the past few days.

Cotopaxi volcano,  

August 18, 2015

Ecuador

 

 

"Culminating at 5897 meters altitude, the Cotopaxi volcano, located 45 km south of the Ecuadorian capital of Quito, since Friday is shaken by numerous explosions. The awakening of sleep after 73 years of this volcano, considered one of the most dangerous in the world, has aroused a reaction for the least surprising of the government: the censorship of information regarding the eruption The objective according. him avoid panic.

 

"To ensure the safety of citizens, censorship is decreed concerning information on the eruptive process Cotopaxi volcano emitted by the communications media," states the decree imposing the state of emergency will be in effect for 60 days maximum. During this period, Ecuadorians "can only learn by official bulletins issued on the subject by the Ministry Security Coordinator, with the broadcast ban of any information not authorized by a communication medium, whether public or private, or through social networks. " "In such cases, the information is very important," said Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa, warning against the risk of "creating rumors, that anyone on Twitter launches an enormity that causes panic" .

 

A measure "disproportionate" to the press

 

The measure tense Ecuadorian media, already regularly criticized by the socialist president for their alleged links with the opposition. "The president argues that it is to avoid panic with alarmist information. It is assumed that journalists and citizens are alarming, there's this implicit bias" critical Diego Cornejo, director of the Ecuadorian Association of Newspaper publishers (Aedep). For the journalist, this censorship is "disproportionate, inappropriate, precisely because it happens in a moment of social mobilization.

 

This measure coincides indeed with the protests led by the opposition and indigenous groups. Last Thursday, a great day of action against the government, during which thousands of people also marched in favor of the President, resulted in 67 police officers injured and 47 demonstrators arrested, after violent clashes with security forces of the order. This movement, which blocked many roads in the country, aimed to denounce the government's method Correa, as his opponents describe as authoritarian, while president wants to amend the constitution to run for a fourth term.

 

An ambiguous decree

 

César Ricaurte, director of the NGO Fundamedios denounces him blur around censorship. "We do not actually know if the decree refers to all social networks or only communications media accounts," he says, and "the ambiguity of the decree leaves (the government) enormous power , including that citizens can not decide. "

 

The Minister of Communication Fernando Alvarado assured that the media could do their job by covering the eruption. But they will do so with "a lot of responsibility and attention to their stories, their stories, their photographs will deviate in any case clear from official message on the danger, prevention, the tranquility of the population."

 

 

For the lawyer Romel Jurado, who had participated in 2013 in the drafting of a communications bill strengthening state control over the press, it is important to regulate information during a natural disaster. "Controlling social networks is extremely complex, but the caveat is precisely not to stimulate the misuse of social networks in connection" with the volcano, he says, because "poorly disseminated, inaccurate, false or intentionally wrong could lead to loss of life or property. "

Active volcano in Colima Mexico keeps sending ashes and smoke into the skies

 

he Colima Volcano sent smoke and ash three kilometers into the sky in a series of eruptions during the weekend. There have been more eruptions at the Colima Volcano this week, sending ash and smoke more than three kilometers into the air. Also known as the Volcano of Fire, it has been active since July 9, when ash falls forced the evacuation of several communities a few days later.

Mount Lokon erupts – ash cloud closes airport

 

Officials at a key North Sulawesi airport were forced to shut down operations on Sunday after a 1,580-meter volcano erupted on Saturday, sending ash into the skies and hampering visibility. Mount Lokon erupted on Saturday at around 11.50 p.m. local time and gushed volcanic ash across northern and northeastern areas of Sulawesi, forcing officials to close down Manado’s Sam Ratulangi International Airport.

Scientists stumble over active underwater volcano in Southeast

 

About two years ago, geologists studying an ocean channel near Ketchikan spotted something unusual. It was a submerged volcano, about 150 feet below the surface. It was dormant. The experts estimated it hadn’t erupted for about 10,000 years. Now, scientists have discovered another underwater volcano, near Dixon Entrance, just north of Alaska’s maritime border with British Columbia. “Nothing like that had been mapped in the area before, so we knew then that we had discovered something new,” said Gary Greene, a marine geologist working with the Sitka Sound Science Center.

He and a Canadian counterpart found the volcano Sept. 23 during a study of the Queen Charlotte-Fairweather Fault System. That’s been the epicenter of some recent earthquakes. “We had just completed some survey work and we modified our line to go to another place to look. And as we were transiting, we came across this big plume and this big cone where the plume was coming out of,” he said. The plume, made up of methane gas, was being released by a volcanic vent about 3,000 feet below

Lake Toba Supervolcano awakens, hot steam, smelling like gas, ceramic floors houses feel hot!

 

Lake Toba Supervolcano is the largest volcanic lake in the world. In addition, it is the site of a super volcanic eruption that occurred about 74,000 years ago, that caused a massive climate-changing event and killing most humans then alive and creating a population bottleneck in Central Eastern Africa and India that affected the genetic inheritance of all humans today. This eruption is believed to have been the largest anywhere on Earth in the last 25 million years.

It seems the supervolcano awakens again. Villagers of Sitoluama, District Laguboti, Toba Samosir, North Sumatra in Indonesie are baffled as ceramic floors in their houses suddenly feel hot and besides their houses hot steam and smelling like gas coming out of the ground and it has not stopped yet.

Is The World’s Largest Supervolcano Waking Up?
 
The world’s largest supervolcano erupted some time between 69,000 and 77,000 years ago causing a 6 – 10 year winter, and possibly even a 1000 year cooling period. This was one of the Earth’s largest known eruptions ever and caused the human population of Earth to decline dramatically.

Indonesia’s Lake Toba Supervolcano Threatens Global Volcanic Winter: Eruption Caused Mass Extinction 75, 000 Years Ago

JohnThomas Didymus

Indonesia’s Toba supervolcano – the site of the world’s largest volcanic lake in Sumatra –came alive late last month, producing hot steam and foul smelling gas. The recent activity has raised fears of a major eruption after 75,000 years.

Toba Volcano, according to reports in the Indonesian media, is presently producing large emissions of steam and the ground in the area around the volcano is giving off foul odors of gas. Locals have also reported feeling the ground hot under their feet.

The latest activity is reportedly spreading panic among residents of the Toba area.

According to Dutchsinse, Toba supervolcano has a larger eruptive power than the Yellowstone supervolcano in Wyoming, United States.

Researchers say that Toba was responsible for two major global environment altering events in the last 2 million years, erupting on four different occasions in the Quaternary Period: 840,000 years ago, 700,000 years ago and finally about 75,000 years ago.

Hello Reddwolf!

I agree I hope this monumental volcano doesn't blow. I have insiders there that express that this area has experienced increase in activity. What they do express is the media doesn't speak of what is taken place.

They're not expressing to me that the world or anyone there is in immediate danger; but they say the earth is awakening and she may just open us all to her true power.

I'm not one who dispels end time scenarios; but it's true that this is the region and volcano that did wipe out nearly all the earths population nearly 75,000 years ago.

There is a book out there that claims about every 75,000 years an end of cycle takes place. What does this mean? Only the moments ahead will arise telling us how the scenes ahead will unfold.

I now simply look at the moments now and enjoy them. Enjoy your family, your friends and love, smile and laugh; forgive and move on and enjoy this reality even though it's a bit crazy, weird, bi-polar in nature and a bit on the "are you frickin kidding me" side at times. But it's also wonderful, nurturing, caring, compassionate and truly spectacular.

Have a terrific day!

Where consciousness falters and vibrations amongst those living in certain areas closes off and enters a dense phase; slowing down all progress of the masses. Those will be the prone areas now and in the future that will experience such devastation. Right now earth is placing her energy in a cyclical motion and her vibrations are entering a phase of parythmatic seclusion. Only to surface within those areas of what the mass conscious desires. This does not mean those who live in a certain area are thinking of how they want an earthquake or eruption or severe weather. This is simply how negative attracts negative as well as positive attracts positive. Of course there are other factors weighing in on such possibilities.

Hope everyone is having a terrific new week!

Namaste,

Could Mount St Helens be about to erupt? Massive magma chamber found below the volcano may reveal clues about future explosions

 

Its scarred and jagged crater is a reminder of the terrible devastation that Mount St Helens wrought over the Washington countryside 35 years ago.

 

Now a new study of the volcanic plumbing lurking beneath the 8,363ft (2,459 metre) summit suggests the volcano could yet again blow its top in an explosive eruption.

Geologists studying the volcano, which is responsible for the most deadly eruption in US history, have discovered a second enormous magma chamber buried far beneath the surface.

 

This giant pool of molten rock, which lies between seven to 25 miles (40km) below the surface, is connected to a slightly smaller chamber that lies directly beneath the mountain.

 

The researchers also believe a second neighbouring volcano - Mount Adams - may also be fed from the deeper magma chamber.

One Of The Most Dangerous Volcanoes In North America Is Roaring To Life

November 1, 2015

By Michael Snyder

 

 

Popocatepetl-from-Wikipedia-460x317.jpg

 

"More than 25 million people live in the vicinity of North America’s 2nd-highest volcano, and in recent weeks this volcano has been steadily rumbling and has been spewing out massive amounts of black smoke and ash.  I have previously written about “the most dangerous mountain in the United States” (Mt. Rainier), but if the volcano that I am talking about today experiences a full-blown explosive eruption it could potentially be a cataclysmic event beyond what most of us would dare to imagine.  Popocatepetl is an Aztec word that means “smoking mountain”, and it is also the name of a giant volcano that sits approximately 50 miles away from Mexico City’s 18 million residents.  “Popo”, as it is called by locals, was dormant for much of the 20th century, but it came back to life in 1994.  And now all of this unusual activity in recent weeks has many wondering if a major eruption may be imminent.

Historians tell us that Popocatepetl had a dramatic impact on the ancient Aztecs.  Giant mud flows produced by massive eruptions covered entire Aztec cities.  In fact, some of these mud flows were so large that they buried entire pyramids in super-heated mud.

But we haven’t witnessed anything like that in any of our lifetimes, so it is hard to even imagine devastation of that magnitude.

In addition to Mexico City’s mammoth population, there are millions of others that live in the surrounding region.  Overall, there are about 25 million people that live in the immediate vicinity of Popocatepetl.  Thankfully, we haven’t seen a major eruption of the volcano in modern times, but at some point that will change.

As most of you already know, Mexico sits on the “Ring of Fire” that stretches along the outer rim of the Pacific Ocean.  Over the past couple of years seismic activity throughout this area has started to really heat up, and according to Volcano Discovery there are dozens of volcanoes associated with the Ring of Fire that have recently erupted.

That is why so many people are alarmed about the very unusual activity that we began to see from Popocatepetl starting in mid-September.  The following is from a report that was posted on September 23rd…"

Increase in activity, strombolian explosions, pyroclastic flows reported at Guatemala’s Fuego volcano

 

The activity at Fuego might be picking up towards a new paroxysm (eruptive phase with strongly increased effusion rate, resulting in lava fountaining and lava flows). We camped on the SW side of the volcano last night, and observed mild to strong strombolian explosions that occurred at intervals between 1 and 10 minutes. The strongest explosions sent incandescent material to heights of up to approx. 500 m and similar distances. One particularly intense explosion was accompanied by a very strong shock wave.

Yellowstone about to blow? Scientists warning over SUPER-VOLCANO that could kill MILLIONS

 

SCIENTISTS have warned the world is in "volcano season" and there is up to a 10% chance of an eruption soon killing millions of people and devastating the planet.

 

Instances of volcanic eruptions are their highest for 300 years and scientists fear a major one that could kill millions and devastate the planet is a real possibility.

 

Experts at the European Science Foundation said volcanoes – especially super-volcanoes like the one at Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, which has a caldera measuring 34 by 45 miles (55 by 72 km) - pose more threat to Earth and the survival of humans than asteroids, earthquakes, nuclear war and global warming.

 

There are few real contingency plans in place to deal with the ticking time bomb, which they conclude is likely to go off within the next 80 years.
