Recent rumblings from volcanoes in Central America not likely to affect Costa Rica

January 17, 2014

 

 

"COSTA RICARecent volcanic activity in El Salvador and Guatemala has Central American geologists keeping an eye on the region’s volcanoes, including Costa Rica’s Rincón de la Vieja. While Rincón de la Vieja and other Tico volcanoes have seen increased activity in recent years, geologists don’t foresee any immediate eruptions related to these giants.

 

Smoke and ash spewing from the Chaparrastique Volcano after an “explosive eruption,” according to Celina Kattán, director of the Environmental Observatory, delayed air traffic over El Salvador on Dec. 29, 2013. Salvadoran authorities ordered the evacuation of some 500 residents. Guatemalan authorities reported that the Fuego Volcano erupted on Jan. 7, launching a column of smoke and ash into the air. Days later, on Jan. 11, Guatemala’s Pacaya Volcano erupted, triggering the evacuation of nearby communities.

 

Air traffic control there recommended precautions for aircraft flying nearby. Professor and investigator Eliecer Duarte of the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica noted that Costa Rica, along with its Central American neighbors, lies between the Cocos and Caribbean tectonic plates. But there’s no set “formula” for predicting volcanic activity, even if it takes place between the same plates." Tico Times via http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/page/2/

El Misti volcano (Peru): signs of volcanic unrest, earthquake swarm during 14-15 January

January 17. 2014

By T

 

el-misti-volcano.png?w=640

 

 

"The volcano experienced an earthquake swarm during 14-15 January, IGP reported in its latest bulletin. An increase of approx. 25% in seismic activity overall with respect to last year's average was calculated, but IGP stresses that this activity is still low and does not suggest new activity in a near future.

According to the report, a total of 418 seismic events were recorded during the first half of January, most of them during the swarm that occurred on 14-15 Jan when almost 120 quakes were registered within 17 hours. From these events, 144 were so called long-period quakes (internal fluid movements), 269 volcano-tectonic earthquakes (internal rock fracturing) and 5 short pulses of tremor (internal vibration).

El Misti, which is only 17 km from the center of Arequipa city, is one of the countries major and most active volcanoes. Due to its closeness to a large city and its history of explosive eruptions, it is also one of the most dangerous volcanoes in South America, and clearly one that deserves being closely monitored."

Shyhzerli volcano erupts due to earthquake in Azerbaijan
January 17.2014

By Ilhame Isabalaeva - Trend:

Vulkan_260410_1.jpg

"The earthquake, which occurred at about 18 kilometres away from the volcano towards Shamakhi caused eruption of the Shyhzerli volcano. An earthquake occurred two or three days before the eruption," the scientist said.

 

The earthquake and the eruption did not occur on the same day, but sometimes such cases happen, Aliyev said.

"For example, 15 minutes after the Shamakhi earthquake that destroyed the city in 1902, there was a strong eruption of the Shyhzerli volcano. Such strong earthquakes result in the volcano erupting the same day.

 

Volcanos may also erupt a day or two days after, when the seismic wave reaches it. We have found out that the volcano itself should be ready to erupt, there should be enough energy. The earthquake simply contributes to its eruption," the scientist said."

Wrath and fury of Sinabung turns regions of Indonesia into wasteland
January 28, 2014
 
 
"INDONESIA – This stunning time lapse footage shows the eruption of Mount Sinabung on Sumatra Island, northwest Indonesia in recent weeks. While the images may look impressive, the active volcano has cause havoc in the region with over 25,000 people evacuated from the danger area since the active flows began last September and authorities raised the alert status to the highest level in November.  The volcano, which became active in 2010 having lain dormant since the 15th century, has erupted hundreds of times since the latest activity began, sending volcanic debris as high as 4,000m into the air. This video shows the devastation wrought on a nearby village by the tons of ash descending from the air. Mount Sinabung is among about 130 active volcanoes in Indonesia, which is prone to seismic upheaval due to its location on the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” an arc of volcanoes and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin.

Volcanic Activity in Guatemala Prompts Series of  Evacuations

 

A volcanic eruption last week in the Central American nation of Guatemala is forcing nearby evacuations and has closed the area off to tourism according to reports from AP sources in the area. The volcano is located just south of Guatemala City. The Pacaya volcano has begun a constant lava flow down one side of the mountain that has caused the removal of some local residents. There have also been intermittent explosions and clouds of ash being tossed into the air. The activity of the volcano is described as “mildly explosive and effusive (Strombolian activity, lava fountaining, lava flows from the summit crater),” according to Volcano Discovery.

Three more volcano notices in the last couple days

 

Shishaldin Volcano’s alert status upgraded after unusual activity

January 31, 2014

 

30Shishaldin_thumbnail.JPG

 

"ALASKA – The Alaska Volcano Observatory upgraded the alert level at Shishaldin Volcano in the Aleutian Islands Thursday after seeing some unrest at the summit. AVO scientist Kristi Wallace says the unusual activity at Shishaldin began Wednesday. “Little bit ago, AVO changed the color code at Shishaldin from green to yellow based on increased temperatures at the summit crater of Shishaldin Volcano as well as increased steaming yesterday,” she says. Both of those observations were observed via satellite imagery. Wallace says the observations don’t mean Shishaldin is in imminent danger of eruption. "

New eruptive phase reported at Ecuador’s Tungurahua Volcano

January 30, 2014

 

ECUADORA new eruptive phase has begun at the volcano. Since the early morning today, the seismic network detected an increase in earthquakes including signals of small explosions and long-period events and tremor typical for internal fluid movements (gasses and magma). The Tungurahua volcano Observatory while unable to make direct visual observations received reports from observers that fine black ash fell in Pungal and Penipe, and minor amounts in Palictahua. The black color of the ash suggests that it originates from fresh (so called juvenile) magma. The last eruptive phase of Tungurahua was between 6 Oct and 13 Nov past year and consisted in strombolian-vulcanian explosions generating ash columns rising up to 4 km, accompanied by strong shock waves and producing occasional pyroclastic flows.

Kavachi undersea volcano (Solomon Islands) erupts

February 1, 2014

 

kavachi_ali_2014029.jpg

 

"SOLOMON ISLANDSA submarine eruption is likely occurring at the submerged volcano. A NASA satellite image from 29 Jan shows a plume of discolored sea water swirling and drifting from the location of the volcano. The discoloration is likely from suspended volcanic sediments (the fragmented lava) and gasses. Kavachi is an undersea volcano on the southern edge of the Solomon Islands in the western Pacific Ocean. It erupted dozens of times in the 20th century, often breaking the water surface, only to be eroded back below the water line within a few months. Whether the new eruption will break the surface and create another new island remains to be seen. Directly above the undersea peak, a bright patch is visible that suggests vigorously churning water—but there is no sign that the eruption has broken the surface. NASA Volcano Discovery

Kelut volcano (East Java, Indonesia): seismic swarm, alert level raised

February 2, 2014

By T

 

 

kelut.jpg

The new lava dome of Kelut volcano in Nov 2007

 

"The alert level of the volcano was raised today from 1 ("normal") to 2 ("Waspada", "watch") on a scale of 1-4. During the second half of 2014, a strong increase in seismic activity and a 5.5 deg temperature increase of the crater lake water had been detected.

The number of shallow volcanic earthquakes rose from averages of 1-2 per day to approx 10 per day during 20-31 Jan and climbed to more than 100 events since the start of February alone. This might indicate a shallow intrusion is taking place and could lead to a new eruption. VSI recommends not to approach the crater within 2 km radius.

The last eruption of Kelut was in Oct-Nov 2007, when a new lava dome grew within the crater lake."

Large Explosive Eruption at Ecuador’s Tungurahua
Erik Klemerti
February 1, 2014
 
ovt-3.jpg
 
"February is off to a roaring start … another brief post to direct you to the significant explosive eruption (see above) going on right now at Ecuador’s Tungurahua. You can see the eruption right now on the IG-EPN webcams and it looks like both an ash column and pyroclastic flows heading towards the Chambo River being generated. I don’t know what precautions are being taken right now at Tungurahua, but I imagine people close to the volcano will need to get out quickly. Explosions earlier today reached at least 2.5 km / 8,200 feet, but the activity right now looks worse. Tungurahua had been experiencing heightened earthquake activity for the past few days."

19 more volcanoes on alert

February 4, 2014

Jakarta Post

 

xvolcanoefeb4.img_assist_custom-560x306.

 

"The government has raised the status on another 19 volcanoes in the country to alert level — the second-highest category — in the wake of the Mount Sinabung eruption in North Sumatra that killed 16 people on Saturday.

Besides the 19 new additions, three volcanos have been on high alert status since last year. They include Lokon and Karangetang in North Sulawesi and Rokatenda in East Nusa Tenggara.

The National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) issued the raised status on Monday for the 19 volcanoes, which are scattered across the archipelago, but has yet to call for the evacuation of populations living nearby.

The 19 volcanoes are Kelud, Ijen, Bromo, Semeru and Raung in East Java; Lewotobi Perempuan in East Nusa Tenggara; Ibu, Gamkonora, Dukono and Gamalama in North Maluku; Soputan in North Sulawesi; Sangeang Api in West Nusa Tenggara; Papandayan in West Java; Dieng in Central Java; Seulewah Agam in Aceh; Talang and Marapi in West Sumatra; Anak Krakatau in Banten; and Kerinci in Jambi.

Indonesia is among the world’s most seismically active countries, situated on the Pacific Ring of Fire, an arc of volcanoes and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin. The 19 volcanoes are among about 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia."

Ubinas Volcano Emits Ash and Smoke; Shaken by Violent Spasm of Tremors

 

 The Ubinas Volcano near the southern city of Arequipa in Peru has become active again after several months of minimal activity. According to El Comercio, the volcano is emitting columns made of ash, smoke, and steam, as well as registering seismic movements. Since Jan. 31, the volcano has reportedly experienced as many as 100 seismic events every day, including a Feb. 1 movement which lasted for seven hours. El Comercio reports that the various ash columns released by the volcano have reached heights from 700 to 2,000 meters.

Monday, February 3, 2014 BREAKING: Yellowstone's Supervolcano Belly Rumbling

by:Andrew Pontbriand

 
yellow+alert.jpg

A seismometer inside a borehole at Yellowstone National Park has begun reporting staggering underground activity near the southwest corner of Yellowstone Lake, possibly signaling the beginning of an eruption of the Super Volcano at the Yellowstone National Park

February 3, 2014
Andrew Pontbriand


Yellowstone National Park is home to many beauties, with it's ancient landscape, geysers, and hot springs. It is also the site of one of the worlds most destructive forces. A supervolcano.

On average, Yellowstone's Caldera erupts about every 640,000 years. According to the analysis of earthquake data in 2013, the magma chamber is 80 km (50 mi) long and 20 km (12 mi) wide, and is shaped like 4,000 km3 (960 cu mi) underground mass, of which 6–8% is filled with molten rock.

The upward movement of the Yellowstone caldera floor between 2004 and 2008 rose almost 3 inches (7.6 cm) each year and was more than three times greater than ever observed since such measurements began in 1923. By the end of 2010, geologists stated that the ground swelling has slowed down significantly.




However, new reports are coming in the a borehole (B944) at Yellowstone Lake (where most activity is) has shown some pretty intense movements.

"The activity began around 12:00 Noon, Mountain Standard Time (MST) on February 1, and was detected by a seismometer in Borehole B944 then continued, non-stop, all day yesterday getting worse and worse as the hours wore on.  The activity is continuing right now at 6:06 EST AM as this news article is being produced." This according to Turner Radio Network.



yellow+1.png The map below shows the location of Borehole B944 in relation to Yellowstone Lake and the rest of the park.

"A second printout shows the activity continuing to this very moment, so severely that the seismometer printer is RUNNING OUT OF BLUE, BLACK AND GREEN INK!"

I Will Do ... For Bitcoin

To get an idea at how monsterous these supereruptions can be, the Island Park Caldera supereruption (2.1 million years ago), which produced the Huckleberry Ridge Tuff, was the largest and produced 2,500 times as much ash as the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption.

Only time will tell on if these beast is ready to go, as it is technically "over do" for it's next eruption. However, it could still be another million years before it does. This data could just a bark at the moon, however a large series of earthquakes occurred in and around the area. These links are below.

News of this super volcano has been around for at least 10 years I'm aware of.  It seems to ebb and flow in its activity in heating the surrounding ground, so it's been in the back of many of our minds.  Because of its size, I would have thought much more of Canada and the US would be predicted to be seriously affected.

From my memory that circle represents death to all living creature within 3 minutes of the volcano erupting.

I would say if that is true much much more will be affected

There was also an article I saw, a few days ago, and I don't know how accurate.

 

It was saying that some of the 'activity' there is looking artificial, some of the seismic waveforms are looking too regular, like something or someone is trying to poke Yellowstone into action.

Thank you all for posting this information. @ EagleWings I do believe, in response to the thought that the action seems to be artificial, that from what I have read,  Russia has been "woodpeckering" Yellowstone since 1976.  IOW trying to make it go off. with a weapon they call Woodpecker.  I believe I read this on Col. Tom Bearden's web site several years ago. @Arc I don't know if this is exactly a circle of death, but do believe within that circle all would be affected by heavy ash fall.  I do say that we would all, worldwide, be affected, no one will escape what all that ash will do once in our atmosphere. I think they said heavy ash would fall as far away as 600 to 800 miles, but within 300 miles would be the worst, and possibly kill everything.  I am doing this from memory of what I recall, so I could have some things incorrect, so hope I will be forgiven if so. 

 

I lived through Mt.St.Helens and it was bad enough, I can't imagine living through Yellowstone blowing, and I am right on the edge of that circle. Then too, do we have any clue what Yellowstone might then set off, since I believe underground, all these super volcanoes are connected, and Long Valley in California is not that far away. Plus it seems to me that they were trying to get this volcano vented into the GOM, where, of course, there is that huge asphalt volcano covering a great amount of the sea floor just off the coast.  Just my thoughts.

TERRORIST ATTACK ATTEMPT AGAINST YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK; Artificial Resonance Targeting Yellowstone Lake / Volcano; Irrefutable Proof of man-made effort to trigger Eruption

February 5, 2014

 

"February 5, 2014 -- (TRN) --  A Terrorist Attack appears to have been attempted for several hours yesterday-into-today,  against Yellowstone National Park; specifically, against the Super Volcano located beneath Yellowstone Lake.  Seismometers at Yellowstone picked up precisely-timed vibrations which cannot occur naturally, being focused on the Caldera (mouth) of the super volcano by some external means.  Whatever was being used SUCCEEDED in achieving resonance vibration underground inside the caldera (mouth) of the super volcano and the resonance got worse by the hour The sole purpose of this effort could ONLY be to destabilize the Yellowstone caldera with the intent of causing an eruption of the super volcano.

TRN has the proof, shown below; now the world has it too.  Common sense dictates this type of effort can only be undertaken by a nation-state. If this is not stopped, a super-volcanic-eruption could be induced, wiping out the entire northwestern quadrant of the United States and killing millions, in an act of state-sponsored terrorism through the use of a Resonant Energy Weapon.

 

According to data being recorded by seismometers at Yellowstone National Park, at about 8:30 AM Mountain Standard Time (MST) yesterday, February 4, 2014, someone began employing artificial technology against the Caldera (mouth) of the Yellowstone Super Volcano.  This technology was creating precisely timed bursts of vibration - which simply cannot occur naturally - and these bursts of vibration were setting up resonance vibrations in the ground beneath Yellowstone Lake.

 

Four hours later, at 12:30 MST, the resonance took-hold and the synchronized vibrations - all perfectly timed and spaced - began affecting the ground.

 

Three hours later, around 3:30 PM, the resonance vibrations - still perfectly timed and spaced - began showing significant effect.  This continued and got worse BY THE HOUR as shown in the seismometer graph below:   (Click Image twice To ENLARGE)"

Indonesian Volcano Erupts: 2 Killed, 100K Evacuated

 

An explosive volcanic eruption on Indonesia's most populous island blasted ash and debris 18 kilometers (12 miles) into the air Friday, killing two people while forcing authorities to evacuate more than 100,000 and close six airports.

The overnight eruption of Java island's Mount Kelud could be heard up to 200 kilometers (125 miles) away, Indonesia's disaster agency said.

"The eruption sounded like thousands of bombs exploding," Ratno Pramono, a 35-year-old farmer, said after returning from an evacuation center to check on his property in the village of Sugihwaras, around five kilometers (three miles) from the crater. "I thought doomsday was upon us. Women and children were screaming and crying."

Ash and grit fell to earth in towns and cities across the region, including Surabaya, Indonesia's second-largest city after Jakarta, with a population of about 3 million. It also fell even farther afield in Yogyakarta, where motorists switched on headlights in daylight, and lay five centimeters (two inches) deep in some places.

San Miguel (Chaparrastique) volcano (El Salvador): increasing volcanic unrest

February 17, 2014

"Warning signs of a possible new eruption of the volcano in the near future are becoming increasingly alarming. Accompanied by an ongoing earthquake swarm, tremor (as an indicator of internal pressure) continues to climb. Pulsating gas emissions reaching 50-400 m height above the crater have been seen recently.
Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions remain high. Depending on wind direction and speed, air quality in downwind areas near the volcano often reaches unhealthy values.
Since 27 Jan, a total of 109 earthquakes were detected by MARN under the north flank of the Chaparrastique volcano, with magnitudes ranging between 0.6 and 1.9."

Ubinas volcano (Peru): phreatic explosions

February 16, 2014

"The volcano could be in the process of entering a new eruptive phase. Two small (likely phreatic) explosions occurred last Friday at 13:46 and 14:45 h local time (18:46 and 19:45 GMT), ejecting plumes of ash and steam rising approx. 1.5-2 km. A strong sulfur smell was noticed in up to 5 km distance.

Ubinas, Peru's most active volcano, had been showing increased signs of unrest since the beginning of the month. Episodes of tremor occurred frequently during 1-9 Feb, accompanied by intense fumarolic activity. Tremor decreased after 9 Feb, but a swarm of long-period earthquakes occurred with up to 80 quakes detected per day.
An important increase in SO2 emission (500 tons/day on 7 Feb) was measured, which suggests the presence of new magma. In addition, INGEMMET detected 25-30 mm inflation of the southern flank, but notes that it is likely a sign of its structural instability, enhanced by the current seismic activity (as opposed to being a sign of magma pushing from inside).

Authorities have distributed dust masks to people in the areas of Cancosani, Titi and Cangalle."

New ash explosions reported at Indonesia’s Marapi Volcano

February 27, 2014

 

m01_25783021.jpg

 

INDONESIA - Another ash eruption occurred at the volcano this afternoon at 16:15 local time. According to local news quoting the local VSI volcano observatory spokesman, the eruption today was the largest in a series since the alert status had been raised on 3 August last year. Ash fell in a radius of 3 km where some villages are located. Also according to the article, the volcano has had a total of 57 recorded eruptions since January 2014. Since all of these have been small, and Indonesia is very used to small volcanic eruptions, they hardly make any news at all (while such an event at other volcanoes would). The alert status remains unchanged at 2 out of 4. People were recommended to avoid exposure to ash if possible and wear dust masks. –Volcano Discovery "

Two small eruptions reported at Alaska’s Cleveland’s Volcano

February 27, 2014

 "ALASKAResearchers detected two small explosions at Cleveland Volcano on Monday afternoon and early Tuesday morning, according to the Alaska Volcano Observatory. The first occurred a little after 5 p.m. Monday and the second at 1:35 a.m. Tuesday. The AVO said the explosions were brief, and were detected by infrasound and lightning alarms. A small ash cloud — the presence of which was confirmed by satellite — was estimated to be drifting at an altitude of about 16,000 feet above sea level. “These explosions are typical of eruptive activity of Cleveland over the past few years,” reported AVO. “There may be a heightened chance of additional ash emissions in the coming weeks. Because these explosions were brief and there is no sign of ongoing eruption, Cleveland remains at Volcano Alert Level/Aviation Color Code YELLOW/ADVISORY.” The 5,676-foot peak [3], also known as Mount Cleveland, is in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands and has erupted numerous times in recent years. Its alert level was briefly raised to orange for a week in January, before being lowered to yellow again Jan. 10. -AD"

Poás Volcano spews material 300 meters high after explosion inside crater

February 27, 2014

"COSTA RICAThe crater of Poas Volcano expelled material 300 meters into the air at noon on Tuesday. The phenomenon, called a phreatic explosion, occurred due to a reaction between magma and water at the southern border of the lake inside the volcano. However, this was not an eruption and the volcano did not spew lava. Instead, a column of steam, gas and other materials formed and spouted out the top of the volcano, confirmed the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI). María Martínez Cruz, a volcanology and geochemistry expert with OVSICORI, said the event can be considered “normal for the volcano’s activity, although explosion heights like the one recorded Tuesday are not that common.” This type of explosion, called phreatic, occurs when the volcano’s magma contacts water in the crater’s lagoon and evaporates quickly through fissures. That action results in an blast of steam, water, ash and small rocks. [The volcano] has been calm for several months. It’s only releasing a lot of gas. This is part of the natural phenomenon, throwing tall columns of gas into the air, steam, the colors of the [volcanic] lake,” said Juan Dobles, administrator of the Poás Volcano National Park. Currently there is no risk to visitors since most materials dissipate in the wind, Martínez added. Poás Volcano National Park is open from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every day, and visitors can walk to a lookout point to get a scenic view of the volcano. The Poás Volcano National Park is the second most visited in the country after Manuel Antonio National Park in the Pacific."

Hmmm. That Poas volcano one is interesting.  I have been there. That expulsion, or whatever, really changed the color of the volcanic lake, if the picture is accurate. It is usually a striking blue-green.

Thousands in Guatemala Facing Evacuation as Pacaya Volcano Erupts

 

A volcano has erupted in Guatemala, prompting the authorities to consider the evacuation of some 3,000 people living in the area.

The Pacaya volcano began spewing ash and lava after a powerful explosion on Saturday afternoon.

New explosions were seen on Sunday, with ash clouds reaching a height or at least 4km (3 miles).
