MONSTER ERUPTIONS: Panic as two volcanoes EXPLODE simultaneously causing mass evacuation

 

The two volcanoes are thousands of miles apart but are on the edge of the same tectonic plate – the Phillippine Plate – sparking fears of a major seismic shift, more volcanic activity and even earthquakes and tsunamis.

More than 1,200 people have been evacuated from within a 1.9-mile containment zone around Mount Egon in Kupang, eastern Indonesia - one of the most volcanic parts of the globe.

 

It was followed moments later by the eruption of Zhupanovsky on Russia's eastern coast which spewed lava FIVE MILES into the air.

The latter explosion is likely to affect air traffic in Russia, but the huge ash cloud is also drifting east over the Pacific Ocean so the impact on flights could be much worse.

Mysterious 'one of a kind' hollow glass EGG spewed out by Hawaii volcano

 

Last week, a lava lake at Hawaii's Kilauea volcano exploded, and it spewed something very unusual—a mysterious, balloon-like object with a glassy shell.

 

Explosions at the lake are typically very activity, but this bizarre find is something scientists have never seen before.

It's now being said that the hollow object is a 'Pele's tear' with a one-of-a-kind structure.

 

The black, egg-shaped object was found on the rim of Halema'uma'u Crater, roughly 360 feet above the lake's surface.
The 'one-of-a-kind,' Pele's tear found by the observatory is about half an inch long and completely hollow.

Mass EVACUATION Mexico City on alert: One of world’s MOST DANGEROUS volcanoes threatens to BLOW: Is Mexico city doomed?

There would certainly be a MASS MIGRATION if this volcano near Mexico City blows its top...

Mass EVACUATION Mexico City on alert: One of world’s MOST DANGEROUS volcanoes threatens to BLOW: Is Mexico City doomed?

Countdown to Zero Times

Jan 22, 2016

http://bit.ly/23jWnp7

[snip]

THOUSANDS of people living by one of the world’s most dangerous volcanoes have been put on evacuation alert after the monster peak began spewing toxic gas and ash. Tens of thousands of people live in the farming villages on the volcano’s flanks while roughly 25 million people live within a 60 mile radius.

Historians tell us that Popocatepetl had a dramatic impact on the ancient Aztecs. After a huge eruption 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.

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…

CENAPRED reported that during 16-22 September the seismic network at Popocatépetl recorded 15-89 daily emissions consisting of water vapor, gas, and sometimes ash; cloud cover often prevented visual observations. Variable nighttime or morning crater incandescence was observed most days, and 1-13 daily explosions were registered.

In recent days, the activity at Popocatepetl seems to be getting stronger and more intense.

Mexico City is not in a particularly safe location. In addition to Popocatepetl, the city also sits in an area that is prone to experiencing earthquakes.

Volcano red alert: Vesuvius danger zone swallows up an extra million people

 

It has been called Europe’s time bomb. And with good reason: half the population of Naples, a sprawling city of three million people, is at risk from Vesuvius, according to a new assessment that has added 63 towns and villages to the list of municipalities that lie in the danger zone.

 

The 63, in the provinces of Naples and Salerno, have been placed in a new “yellow zone” by experts because they would experience falling ash and rocks in the event of significant eruption.

 

That is in addition to the 600,000 residents in a “red zone” closest to Vesuvius, who have already been warned they are most at risk. People living this near face pyroclastic flows – 200mph waves of scalding gas, ash and rock that would rip down the sides of the volcano and burn and blast everything in their path.

Has anyone seen the fifth wave movie?

Remember Jessica you had a vision or dream of some major event with water? You were thinking the west coast. The movie is based on aliens that journey across the skies of earth and start wave after wave of disaster here. The point I'm making is several. I'm not one with conspiracies or anything like that; but when watching the movie (it was a bit hokey but good) several things came to me.

1st the X-files; they come out with not aliens doing all this to us and what we view in our skies.

2nd the movie represents aliens that host on us and take over our military or militaries to turn us against each other.

3rd the first wave is these aliens cause our electrical systems to shut down.

4th the second wave is they cause major earthquakes that end up over turning even the Great Lakes and epic waves that hit all coasts on the planet.

5th reading some of Chani posts this all ties into all theories of aliens already doing this now and causing the unpredictability of weather and earth problems we are having.

Again, I'm not one to go with this; but I just thought it was cool that this movie, what we learned in the X-files and the theories out there; they seem to tie in. Even with our history.

Cool none the less.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Sakurajima Volcano Erupts Near Nuclear Plant

February 5, 2016

 

 

"Rocks and ash are catapulted into the sky as one of the country's most active volcanoes bursts into life.

 

Japan's Sakurajima volcano has erupted, sending lava flowing down its slope and spewing ash and stones into the night sky.

 

Dramatic pictures of the fiery spectacle also show flashes of volcanic lightning - thought to be caused by friction between ash particles and gases.

 

The volcano, in the southern Kagoshima prefecture, has been showing increased activity since August when locals were told to prepare for a large eruption and possible evacuation."

 

2016-02-05t110450z-132202473-gf100002969

 

Around 4,000 people live near the volcano.

Sakurajima volcano in Japan Erupts

February 5, 2016

 

 

Lava rolls down mountain’s slope and smoke billows into sky after eruption in southern Japan

 

A volcano has erupted in southern Japan, sending an orange burst into the sky and lava rolling down the mountain.

 

The country’s meteorological agency said Sakurajima erupted at about 7pm local time (10am GMT). The public broadcaster NHK showed dark grey smoke billowing into the sky and lightning.

 
There were no immediate reports of injuries. The meteorological agency however banned entry to the area, expanding an existing no-go zone around the crater to a 1.2-mile radius.
 
The eruption, while dramatic, was average compared to Sakurajima’s past eruptions, Kyoto University volcanologist Kazuhiro Ishihara told NHK. The mountain’s last major eruption was in September.
 
“I don’t think there will be any serious impact from the explosion,” Ishihara said. “But of course we must keep monitoring the volcanic activity.”

Peruvian volcano may be awakening from dormancy after 540 years – increased activity

 

The Peruvian volcano El Misti appears to have woken from centuries of dormancy with signs of increased activity. Note, this DOES NOT mean there will be a volcanic eruption and activity remains within a normal range of an active volcano. However, this is an interesting an opportune time for geologists to study the inner workings of volcanoes to better predict and understand their activity. Geologists are piecing together an interesting set of data that are indicative of an increase in activity. With the help of seismic monitoring systems, Peruvian scientists will be able to link seismic activity to gas release.

VOLCANO WATCH: Mauna Loa, Earth’s Largest Active Volcano, is Still Stirring

February 26, 2016

By Hawaiian Volcano Observatory

 

 

"Despite not being in the headlines, Mauna Loa continues to be in a state of unrest based on seismic and deformation monitoring data.

 

The USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory’s improved seismic network began to detect increasingly frequent, small earthquakes on Mauna Loa as early as 2013. Renewed inflation of the volcano was detected by HVO’s GPS network and also with Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) in 2014. Based on the elevated rates of earthquakes and persistent inflation, the Volcano Alert Level for Mauna Loa was elevated from Normal to Advisory on September 15, 2015.

 

According to the USGS Alert-Notification System for Volcanic Activity, an Advisory level indicates that the volcano is showing signs of unrest above known background levels, but does not mean that an eruption certain. Another period of Mauna Loa unrest in 2004–2005 included inflation and anomalous seismicity, but did not result in an eruption.

 

Mauna Loa, the largest active volcano in the world, has erupted 33 times since 1843. These eruptions occurred within the volcano’s summit caldera (Mokuʻāweoweo), along one of its two rift zones (Northeast and Southwest), or from radial vents located on the north and west flanks of the volcano. All historical eruptions started at the summit of Mauna Loa and then either remained in the summit area or migrated down one of the rift zones. Of the 33 eruptions, about half remained within the summit area and about half moved down a rift zone.

 

Mauna Loa’s two most recent eruptions occurred in 1975 (summit) and 1984 (summit and Northeast Rift Zone). Both eruptions were preceded by at least a year of elevated seismicity. Satellite technology was not as advanced then, so there are no GPS or InSAR records for either of these eruptions.

snip

An interesting change in the current unrest began in the fall of 2015, when, according to InSAR and GPS measurements, the main source of inflation on Mauna Loa moved from beneath the summit caldera to an area slightly farther southwest on the volcano. Along with this change in deformation, earthquakes beneath the summit caldera ceased. Currently, most of the earthquakes occurring on Mauna Loa are within the volcano’s uppermost Southwest Rift Zone region. 

 

As you can see, unrest at Mauna Loa is not following a simple script. This is why, at this point in time, it is not possible to forecast with certainty if or when the volcano will erupt as a result of this unrest."

Evidence in the Cassia Hills of Idaho Reveals 12 Catastrophic Eruptions

 

"And other recently released GSA Bulletin articles

 

Boulder, Colo., USA - Ancient super-eruptions west of Yellowstone, USA, were investigated by an international initiative to examine the frequency of massive volcanic events. Yellowstone famously erupted cataclysmically in recent times, but these were just the latest of a longer succession of huge explosive eruptions that burned a track from Oregon eastward toward Yellowstone during the past 16 million years.

The Cassia Hills of southern Idaho preserve evidence of twelve catastrophic large-scale explosive eruptions, which left widespread glassy deposits fused to the landscape. Each deposit preserves subtly distinctive magnetic, mineralogical, and chemical characteristics that allow them to be traced great distances.

Painstaking work by Thomas R. Knott and colleagues has revealed records of previously undiscovered large-scale eruptions, which caused Earth's crust in the area to subside by more than three kilometers, leaving a deep volcanic basin along the Snake River Plain. These older volcanic eruptions were hotter and probably more frequent than the Yellowstone eruptions."

Mexico’s Popocatépetl comes to life at 2:30 in the morning with massive explosion – hurls ash over nearby town

 

The volcano Popocatépetl came to life at 2:32 this morning, sending out a column of ash that fell on much of the city of Puebla and closed the airport. The National Disaster Prevention Center, Cenapred, said the volcano spewed ash to an altitude of about three kilometers above the crater. The explosion was accompanied by the emission of incandescent fragments which were reported to be landing up to 1.6 kilometers away, northeast of the volcano, which is commonly known as El Popo.

One of Africa’s most active volcanoes is showing new signs of life

 

In the early morning of Feb. 29, park officials, tourists and locals near Mount Nyiragongo in the Democratic Republic of Congo heard an unfamiliar sound: rumbling. What they were hearing was the sound of earthquakes deep below the surface. The movement knocked giant rocks off of the crater walls. And at the same time, a new vent appeared on a ledge. Since that day, the vent explodes about every 30 seconds, throwing lava up to 90 feet in the air. Most of that lava flows back into the volcano, while the rest of it cools in the crater itself.

 

It’s beautiful, but it’s also a troubling reminder of a 14-year-old catastrophe. The last time the volcano erupted — in 2002 — it killed 147 people and forced 400,000 people to flee the nearby city of Goma. The eruption effectively split Goma in two, destroying a third of the city. Lava even covered about 80 percent of the airstrips at Goma International Airport, making it almost impossible to evacuate people or get outside aid to survivors. Just like back in 2002, the threat facing Goma today isn’t an explosion, but a fast-moving river of lava that flows out of cracks on the side of the mountain.

Costa Rican capitol affected by strong eruption of Turrialba Volcano

 

The strong eruption by volcano Turrialba at the 01:19 local time affected a great part of the Costa Rican capital, which got up Thursday covered by a thin layer of ashes. Television stations transmitted images of the exact moment of the explosion, with a column of smoke and ashes, gases and other materials. The Turrialba is 3,340 meters high, the 2nd highest in Costa Rica after the Irazu volcano, with 3,432 meters, and the experts stated that after this eruption, which lasted 11 minutes, the volcano went back to its passive state.

Hell opens? Costa Rica volcano erupts, spewing ash, column of smoke

 

Featuring thick clouds of ash and smoke rising into the grey sky, spectacular images of the powerful Costa Rica volcano eruption have flooded social media.\

 

The 3,340-meter Turrialba Volcano is located in Cartago Province of central Costa Rica, only 30 km from the country’s capital, San José. The volcanic activity started Wednesday and the first eruptions were recorded Friday, according to local media.

 

“It seems to me to be the strongest [Turrialba] eruption in the past six years,” volcanologist Gino Gonzalez told AFP. He added that the wind was blowing the smoke and ash westward, toward the most populated areas of the country.

Probation? 40....Yes, FORTY Volcanos Are Erupting Right Now...

Posted By: Watchman

Date: Monday, 23-May-2016 12:07:38

Have you noticed that our planet has begun to shake, rattle and roll? Over the past few days we have seen major volcanic eruptions in Costa Rica and Indonesia, and according to Volcano Discovery 40 volcanoes around the planet are erupting right now as you read this article. Meanwhile, earthquakes continue to shake the globe with alarming regularity.

Just last week, Ecuador was hit by a magnitude 6.7 earthquake and a magnitude 6.8 earthquake in rapid succession. Overall, there have been more than 3,000 earthquakes of magnitude 1.5 or greater within the past month globally. So yes, I write constantly about the rapidly accelerating deterioration of our financial system, but the coming “collapse” is not just about money. I am convinced that we are entering a “perfect storm” in which a confluence of factors will absolutely cripple society and bring about changes that most of us would not even dare to imagine right now.

Let’s talk about the volcanic eruptions that we have seen in recent days. The eruption down in Costa Rica took authorities completely by surprise, and a thick layer of dust and ash is coating vehicles and buildings 30 miles away in the capital city of San Jose…

Central Philippines volcano spouts massive ash column

June 17, 2016

 

 

post-5-0-72719800-1466286616_thumb.jpg

 

"A rumbling volcano in the central Philippines shot a huge column of ash into the sky on Saturday, prompting the official aviation agency to warn aircraft to stay away, authorities said.

 
Mount Kanlaon, located on the central island of Negros, launched a plume of whitish-grey ash about 1.5 kilometres (almost a mile) into the air, said Kenn John Veracruz of the official Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.
 
The civil aviation office issued an advisory, saying "flights operating in the vicinity of the volcano are advised to avoid flying close to the summit as airborne ash from a sudden eruption can be hazardous to aircraft."
 
The volcano, located about 510 kilometres south of Manila, has been more active than usual since November, prompting the government to ban hikers from its slopes.
 
Veracruz said that so far the authorities had not detected any lava rising inside the 2.47-kilometre high volcano but they were checking how far the ash was being scattered by the wind and whether it could affect nearby communities."

Iceland’s Hekla volcano “ready to blow” – internal pressure greater than ever detected

 

A geophysics professor from the University of Iceland has warned people not to travel up Hekla volcano in South Iceland as it could erupt at any moment. As reported by Icelandic news website visir.is (link in Icelandic), Hekla erupted regularly ever ten years or so from 1970 to 2000 – but has now been silent for sixteen years. According to Professor Páll Einarsson, pressure readings within the famous volcano are now higher than before the last two previous eruptions – meaning it could blow with little warning.

After 36,000 years, a massive volcano near Rome rumbles to life

 

The country of Italy, home to one of the most famous volcanic disasters in history, is showing signs that another massive eruption is brewing, according to a new study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. Almost 2,000 years after the burial of Pompeii and nearby Herculaneum during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D., an ancient volcano near Rome is rumbling to life, say scientists. About 19 miles away from the heart of Rome, an ancient volcanic district called the Colli Albani is stirring. The Colli Albani, a 9-mile-long semicircle of hills on the outskirts of Rome, last erupted 36,000 years ago, so geologists had classified it as extinct – until about 20 years ago.

 

In the early 1990s, the area around the Colli Albani Volcanic District began showing geological indicators of a future explosion: ground levels shifted, steam vents opened, and earthquakes shook the hills around the site. Since that time, scientists have used these symptoms, along with satellite data and information about the volcano’s previous eruptions, to evaluate the risk that the Colli Albani poses to the surrounding region.

Iceland's biggest volcano Katla set to erupt after largest tremors in 40 years

 

Iceland raised the alarm after its largest volcano was hit by the biggest tremors since 1977.

 

Two quakes larger than four in magnitude early Monday rocked the crater of Katla, the country’s Met Office said in a statement.

That was followed by at least 10 more tremors at the volcano, which rises 1,450 metres (4,757 feet) into the air on the North Atlantic island’s southern coast. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damages to property.

Phivolcs warns of ‘big’ Mayon eruption in coming days

 

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has warned of a possible “big” Mayon volcano eruption in the coming days. “Phreatic explosion may happen anytime but a big explosion is expected in the coming days,” said Philvolcs resident volcanologist Eduardo Laguerta. Laguerta cited “abnormal activity” similar to what happened prior to the Mayon eruption in 1984. The 1984 Mayon eruption is classified as a Vulcanian-type eruption which involves relatively small but violent explosions of thick lava producing columns of ash, gas, and occasional pyroclastic flows.

 

“The massive drying up of wells across Albay, specifically in the municipalities surrounding the volcano, may be attributed to the magma movement activity beneath the restive volcano,” Laguerta added.
