"A new South Pacific island, but this is no beach paradise: Erupting volcano spews up so much ash it has created a new land mass

  • The new island is more than one kilometre wide, two kilometres long and about 100 metres high 
  • It was created by the volcano Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai, which lies 65km north of Tonga's capital  
  • Its ash originally reached heights of over 4,500 metres, but is now only reaching 400 metres
  • 'As the ash is very wet, most is being deposited close to the vent, building up the new island,' the Lands and Natural Resources Ministry said
  • Ash and acidic rain from the eruption are deluging an area 10 kilometres around the volcano and killing of nearby vegetation"

Fire Volcano in Guatemala erupts, spewing rock and ash

Feb. 7, 2015

 

GUATEMALA CITY (AP) — A national disaster preparedness official in Guatemala says the Fire Volcano has exploded, spewing incandescent rock and ash that dusted surrounding communities.

Spokesman David de Leon says authorities put the southern Guatemala area on alert, though no evacuations have been made so far.

Karina Lopez, a resident of nearby Antigua, said Saturday that ash mixed with a drizzle to reduce visibility and that the rumblings continued."

Three-thousand flee in terror as Chilean volcano Villarrica erupts, sending ash and lava thousands of feet into the air

 

Volcano Villarrica in southern Chile erupted in the early hours of Tuesday, sending ash and lava over 3,000-feet into the sky, and forcing the evacuation of nearby communities.

The volcano, located near the popular tourist resort of Pucon around 750 km (460 miles) south of the capital Santiago, is one of South America's most active. It last erupted in 2000.

Second volcano rumbles to life in Guatemala

 

 

March 2015 – GUATEMALA CITY – Two of Guatemala’s three active volcanoes have now rumbled to life, officials said Wednesday, one day after the Santiaguito volcano began belching smoke and showering nearby towns with ash. Guatemala’s Fuego volcano, in the southwest, over the past several weeks has spewed adjacent towns with soot, forcing the temporary closure last month of a neighbouring airport. Now the Santiaguito volcano in the west has awakened as well, emitting columns of ash 400 meters (1,300 feet) tall above its crater.

Santiaguito, whose peak soars to 2,500 meters above sea level, is located in western Quetzaltenango province. The sleeping giant began to stir on Tuesday, but officials said that thus far, they have not had to evacuate populated areas nearby. The 3,700-meter tall Fuego — whose name means fire in English — last month spewed out large columns of ash, prompting an orange alert and forcing nearby residents to wear protective masks. In 2012, several thousand people were evacuated from Fuego’s slopes after an eruption. Officials said they are keeping an eye on Guatemala’s third active volcano, Pacaya, in the south. So far, there is no indication that it has been roused from its slumber

Quakes increasing: volcanic alert raised for Mount Ngauruhoe after 40 year slumber

 

GNS Science has increased the volcanic alert level for Mount Ngauruhoe after an increase in the number of earthquakes around the volcano. Duty volcanologist Art Jolly said the change at Ngauruhoe indicated the volcano had entered a state of minor volcanic unrest prompting the alert level to be lifted from zero to one. During the past three weeks there has been an increase in the number and magnitude of earthquakes recorded by the GeoNet seismographs around Mt Ngauruhoe.

Mauna Loa: Earth’s second largest volcano showing signs of awakening from slumber

March 22, 2015

 

 

19840325-usgs-mauna-loa-eruption-595x449

 

Over the past few months, Mauna Loa, Hawai‘i Island’s largest volcano, has shown subtle signs of stirring from its 31-year-long slumber (its most recent eruption began on March 25, 1984). The U.S. Geological Survey’s Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) has recorded numerous small earthquakes beneath Mauna Loa’s summit and western flank, and has detected slight expansion across Moku‘āweoweo, the volcano’s summit caldera—signals that Mauna Loa should not be forgotten! What can we expect as this great volcano reawakens and builds toward its next eruption? Generally, as magma rises and eventually infiltrates and fills Mauna Loa’s summit magma reservoir, pressure builds within the volcano. When sufficient pressure is achieved, the volcano expands to accommodate the additional volume of molten rock within it."

Eruption of Russian volcano  blamed for mysterious ash rain over U.S. Pacific Northwest

 

 

 

OREGON - A few weeks ago residents of Oregon and Washington observed a strange milky rain.  As per the reports, the rain contains equal quantity of water and ashes. The officials of Washington and Oregon gathered samples of mysterious ash like rain fall for analysis. They are trying hard to determine the origin and reason of the ashes.  Recently, a group of scientists come up with a theory that a Russian volcano is responsible for such kind of strange rain. Shiveluch volcano is situated at Kamchatka Krai in Russia. It is considered as one of the hyperactive volcanoes of the world.  On the 26th of January, a large quantity of ash plumes erupted from the volcano.

 

Afterwards, the ash covered majority of the regions of Oregon and Washington. Therefore, the concerned authorities suppose that global wind currents carried the ash plumes from the north-eastern Russia. Ashes have the ability to travel long distance through wind current. They can even effortlessly cross the whole continent in a very short time period. Nevertheless, there could be numerous other reasons behind the strange ash rainfall. There are several other volcanoes that can be blamed for such rain. Derek Vandam, a meteorologist at CNN discussed other possibilities of unusual rain.  He informs that a volcano expulsion in Colmia is second major suspect of the researchers. The particular volcano is located approximately 2,000 miles from the North and Central America.

New Zealand community told to prepare for major quake along dangerous Alpine Fault

 

 

A West Coast community will need to consider drastic changes to its town to prepare for an inevitable Alpine Fault earthquake.

The fault runs diagonally through Franz Josef township and geologists have recommended a "fault avoidance zone" 100 metres either side to protect buildings.

GNS Science sent four of its geologists to Franz Josef to talk about what will happen when the Alpine Fault ruptures.

 

The 600-kilometre fault has ruptured five times in the past 1100 years. Each time it produced an earthquake of magnitude 7.0 to 8.0, the last being in 1717.

Dr Ursula Cochran said studying the fault was complicated because different sections had ruptured at different times.

While researching a section of the fault in South Westland, Cochran and her team found evidence for 24 earthquakes over 8000 years.

 

Based on this and similar research, scientists calculated the average interval between earthquakes was about 300 years in South Westland.

From that information, scientists conclude there is a 30 per cent chance of a large earthquake occurring on the southern section of the fault in the next 50 years.

That is considered reasonably high by global standards.

 

Fellow geologist Dr Jamie Howarth said an Alpine Fault earthquake would be accompanied by dramatic changes in the Southern Alps in the following decades.

Scientists had found evidence of an influx of erosion material flowing into lakes and rivers following a large earthquake.

Howarth said that could be seen as a "considerable delayed hazard" with implications for restoration of infrastructure such as road and rail links.

Dr Rob Langridge has worked to map the fault and determine how much it will slip in the next large earthquake.

 

He said there would likely be instantaneous movement between 7 to 8 metres horizontally and 1 to 2m vertically.

Langridge has worked on the concept of a "fault avoidance zone" which is being considered for the Franz Josef township.

It would mean a 100m-wide zone along the fault, which runs diagonally through the township, with special considerations for buildings.

The Westland District Council has proposed changes to its district plan to account for the earthquake risk in Franz Josef. It will hear public submissions on the changes on March 30 and 31.

USGS upgrades Aleutian volcano alert level: volcano stirring after 28 year slumber

 

The USGS upgraded the island’s volcano alert level status to “advisory” and its aviation code to “yellow” Wednesday after an increase in seismic activity. Citing increased seismic intensity, the U.S. Geological Survey is upgrading the volcano alert level status for Semisopochnoi, an Aleutian Island volcano, to “advisory,” the US geological agency said in a notice issued Wednesday morning. Semisopochnoi Island or Unyak Island is part of the Rat Islands group in the western Aleutian Islands of Alaska. The island is uninhabited and provides an important nesting area for maritime birds.

Volcanoes in Chile and Mexico shaken by explosive ash eruptions

 

A steady stream of smoke and ash leaking from the Villarrica volcano has residents of a nearby town wondering if – or when – disaster might strike. Chilean officials raised threat levels to orange on Wednesday due to increasing signs of activity in the 2840-meter tall volcano, leaving area residents fearful of an eruption. ‘No one can sleep peacefully because the other day the eruption surprised us at 3 in the morning,’ said Francisco Valenzuela, a tour guide in the nearby resort town of Pucon.

Chile's Villarrica volcano explodes to life again

April 2, 2015

ABC.net.au

 

 

"After a short period of rest, the Villarrica volcano in southern Chile recently exploded to life again, sending a plume of boiling ash high into the atmosphere."

 

Villarrica_April1.jpg

NASA/USGS

 

"The eruption triggered an increase in the alert level near the volcano to orange, the second highest rating. 

The 2860-metre-high snow-capped stratovolcano, located 750 kilometres south of the capital Santiago, is one of the most active in Chile. 

The latest series of eruptions began on 7 February with several minor explosions and ash plumes triggering a yellow alert. 

A further pre-dawn eruption on 3 March sparked the evacuation of thousands of people from within a 10-kilometre radius of the volcano. 

That eruption covered the mountain's eastern flank with a huge volume of volcanic material. "

Storm in an ash cloud: Electrifying shots of Mexican volcanic eruption show lightning bolts striking inside its ash plume

By Richard Gray for MailOnline

Published: 05:35 EST, 2 April 2015 | Updated: 08:55 EST, 2 April 2015

 

post-2154-0-27334200-1427998485_thumb.jppost-2154-0-73261400-1427998497_thumb.jp

 

 

There are few things more beautiful - or terrifying - than the menacing flash of lightning bolts within a volcanic ash cloud.

 

The latests picture, captured by an amateur photographer as the Colima volcano in Mexico spews out a plume of ash and lava, reveals the raw power of a volcanic eruption.

 

Hernando Rivera Cervantes took the pictures as local authorities warned those living around the volcano, which is also known as the Fire volcano, to prepare for a possible evacuation.

 

The 12,400 feet (3,800 metre) high volcano, which first erupted in 1576, is one of the most active volcanoes in Mexico.

 

Mr Cervantes spent eight hours watching the volcano as it threw ash up to 1.8 miles (three kilometres) into the atmosphere before managing to capture the rare picture.

 

He said: 'I waited for eight hours, knowing something was going to happen. When the lightning arrived it was magical. An unforgettable experience.'

 

These blots of lightning are thought to occur due to the build up of electric charge in the ash cloud as the particles rub against each other.

Just like in a thunder cloud, this charge eventually builds up until it seeks a path through to the ground as lightning.

Volcano eruption in Indonesia triggers evacuation

 

The Mount Sinabung volcano in Indonesia’s North Sumatra province erupted on Thursday afternoon, spewing a column of ash by up to two kilometers into the sky and triggering a small-scale evacuation, an official said on Friday. A powerful burst of hot ash was spread from the rumbling volcano, heading four kilometers to the south of the crater and one kilometer to the southeast, according to Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman for the National Disaster Management Agency, Xinhua reported. Some of the villagers living near the volcano were evacuated to safer places, Sutopo said.

Moquegua: Ubinas volcano explodes, spreads ashes over nearby village

April 8, 2015

The Ubinas volcano erupted early this morning, sprinkling ashes over villages only minutes later.

"Nearly on the anniversary of the evacuation of 28 thousand camelids from its pastures, the Ubinas volcano erupts once again.

The Ubinas volcano of the Moquegua region erupted this morning at 4:24 a.m. causing a layer of ash to fall over nearby villages minutes later, according to Perú21.

On March 31, 2014, the volcano’s eruption caused Querapi residents to be evacuated as it sits just five kilometers from the volcano. Days later on April 21, Peru ordered the evacuation of the camelid animals, as the volcano posed a threat following further activity.

 

Today the Ubinas volcano erupted after about four months of calm. The National Service of Meteorology and Hydrology of Peru (SENAMHI) calculated that the 2.5 km column of ash above the crater could reach more than 15 kilometers to the southeast."

OVSICORI’s webcam recorded the sixth explotion of Turrialba Volcano on Friday, March 13.

 

 

This isn't the current picture, but I chose this one because when we were all watching a strange planet over this volcano, the spot that is erupting here, at night would show a hot glowing spot and sometimes steam.

 

(Via OVSICORI’s webcam)

 

"Turrialba Volcano is at it again.

The Volcanological and Seismological Observatory (OVSICORI) released video Tuesday of an eruption at 2:07 a.m., when a column of hot rocks and ash rocketed out of the colossus. The eruption sent ash 2 kilometers into the air.

The eruption’s most dramatic moment comes 14 seconds into the video when a rush of heat from the crater flashes white on the screen."

Congo’s ticking time-bomb – one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world

 

CONGO – A time bomb is ticking in eastern Congo. Mount Nyiragongo, an active volcano, could erupt at any moment. The ever-present threat is forcing two uneasy neighbours – DRC and Rwanda – to cooperate with one another. The crater of Mount Nyiragongo contains the largest and most voluminous lava lake in the world, measuring a staggering ten million cubic meters. Celestin Kasereka, who works for the volcanological observatory in Goma, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, considers Mount Nyiragongo to be one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. “Nyiragongo is one of three volcanoes in which the lava lake is still active and it is situated right next to Goma with its one million inhabitants. We have to monitor this volcano,” he said.

 

Keeping a volcano under surveillance is a difficult task. There was a time when the European Union and Switzerland provided funding, but foreign aid for the observatory dried up in 2014. The government of North Kivu province lacks the means to make up for the shortfall and so there are no funds available for data gathering expeditions to the crater, seismographs, access to satellite data, or for public awareness campaigns. The observatory doesn’t even have enough resources to update the public warning signs which show the level of volcanic activity. Their purpose is to tell the population when to prepare for the evacuation of Goma, should an eruption be imminent. Kasereka finds this lack of precautionary measures worrying. “If we can’t monitor the volcano properly, we could be in for a nasty surprise.”

 

That was what happened when Nyiragongo last erupted in 2002. Several hundred people were killed by the molten lava. It also destroyed the runway at Goma airport as well as houses and business premises. Joseph Makundi, head of the government’s civil defence department, said that before the year 2002 nobody had stopped to think what might happen in Goma if the volcano were to erupt. “When it did happen, there was total chaos,” he said. “Nobody had lifted a finger, neither the government nor its partners. The present government wants to avoid repeating this mistake and has created a civil defence department.” This agency claims the government is now in a position to evacuate local residents in the vicinity of the volcano. They would be given shelter in 14 camps in the DRC and in neighbouring Rwanda.

 

Mount Nyiragongo is also a permanent hazard for the residents of the town of Gienyi, just across the border in Rwanda. Molten lava from the volcano could spread there, too. There is also a subterranean magma flow running beneath the local hospital in Gisenyi. Once it has broken through the surface, magma is referred to as lava. It could come spewing up from the ground in Gisenyi.
