Japan: A new island appears in the Ogasawara Islands - November 2013

Active volcanoes (Sep 28, 2012)



"Of course all volcanoes will explode, as this is going to be a very severe pole shift. What about the months and years preceding the pole shift? It is no secret that Mammoth Lake and the caldera of Yellowstone are warming up, and the populace has been prepared for these occurrences by the movie Volcano where there, in the middle of LA, lava is bubbling up. In fact, there is a fault line running from the approximate San Diego/LA area, up into the Sierras, and this is liable to rupture rather violently during one of the quakes that precedes the pole shift by some months. Volcanic eruptions from that area in the Sierras can be expected. Will Mount St. Helen erupt? All volcanoes that have been active within the memory of man will begin spewing and burping and oozing, and many that were not expected to become active will reactive. "   ZetaTalk - Feb 15, 2000

Island of no return: Vanuatu evacuates entire population of volcanic Ambae – Thousands permanently resettled as Manaro volcano spews ash 30cm deep

Thousands of south Pacific islanders at the mercy of an active volcano will be permanently relocated by the end of May, the Vanuatu government has said. Ash as deep as 30cm has already settled on many parts of the island, and people are experiencing breathing difficulties, skin reactions and illnesses such as chest infections as they waited to leave. Islanders are frightened and can not wait to get away.

Ambae Island is home to 11,000 people, and for the second time in six months Ambae’s Manaro volcano on top of Mount Lombenben has started rumbling, spewing torrents of ash and gas from its crater and burying vegetable plots and crops, causing breathing and health problems for locals, and threatening their lives and livelihoods.

People living in the north, west and south of the island are worst affected by the ash and began being evacuated on Thursday after a state of emergency was declared on Tuesday.

One Ambae resident, Nadia Kanegai, said islanders were frightened and could not wait to get away.

The ashfall, like part of west Aambae was covered and it was dark [because] of the smoke and the population there was remaining inside and could not come outside. And there was a gas emission as well. So the people are scared.

A local priest said the situation was “desperate” for locals as food supplies and animal feed were beginning to run out, water was contaminated by ash and disease was spreading among the evacuees, most of whom are subsistence farmers.

Police and some aid agencies are already in place, with the army expected to arrive later this week to orchestrate the mass evacuation which this times looks to be permanent.

In times like these, it is always the vulnerable sections of our communities being the women, the children and the elderly, that are most affected,” Avio Roberts, national coordinator for the Vanua’aku party.

Negotiations are under way between landowners and central government to acquire land for Ambae evacuees on either Maewo or Pentecost – the two closest islands to Ambae, but a safe distance from the volcano, which is one of the most active in the world.

People’s lives must be our first priority,” said prime minister Charlot Salwai during the October evacuation, in which planes, ships and barges were used in the DIY effort.

Vanuatu is no stranger to natural disasters, and the the south Pacific nation was rated the most at-risk country in the world in a 2016 UN study.

Its 83 islands are stuck in the middle of hurricane alley and they dot the border of the “ring of fire” – a belt around the Pacific prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

The Australian government provided AU$3.2m to support early recovery efforts for those affected by the Ambae volcano last year, and is ready to give further assistance. The New Zealand government has provided more than NZ$1.5m in assistance, as well as technical support and relief supplies.

Japan Volcano Erupts After 250 Years (Apr 19) 

Mount Ioyama, a volcano that is part of the Kirishima mountain range, erupted at 3:39 p.m. on April 19 for the first time in 250 years, spewing grayish smoke high in the air.

The Japan Meteorological Agency raised the alert level to 3 of the country’s 5-level scale to keep people from the 1,317-meter mountain, cautioning against falling rocks and pyroclastic flows from the volcano within a 2-kilometer range.

The alert level prior to the recent eruption was 2, in which access to the area around the volcanic vents was prohibited.

The Kirishima mountain range straddles Miyazaki and Kagoshima prefectures on the main island of Kyushu.

The eruption of Mount Ioyama was the latest in a series of volcano eruptions in the mountain range.

The last time the eruption of Mount Ioyama was recorded was in 1768, according to the agency’s Fukuoka Regional Headquarters.

The agency raised the warning level to 2 in February, citing volcanic activity.

It marked the first time the agency has raised the alert level to 3 for the mountain.

New eruption starts at Piton de la Fournaise, Reunion

 A new effusive eruption started at Piton de La Fournaise volcano in Reunion at 06:40 UTC on April 3, 2018. The Alert Level was raised to 2-2 and the Aviation Color Code to Orange.

In its latest bulletin issued April 1, 2018, OVPF said that seismicity at the volcano showed an increase during the last fortnight of February. Subsequently, volcano-tectonic activity was observed under the volcano, with an average of 4 earthquakes per day, and two peaks of activity on March 28 and 31, while the inflation of the volcanic edifice continued throughout March.

The Piton de la Fournaise observatory said their records show an increase in the number of earthquakes and persistent deformations at the top of the volcano starting at 01:50 UTC (05:50 local time) today.

Under these conditions, the Reunion prefect declared Alert 1 "eruption probable or imminent," restricting public access to the upper part of the volcano. In addition, the Journal de l’Ile indicates that the evacuation of the Enclos is in progress.

The volcano started erupting at 06:40 UTC today, on the north flank near the Nez Coupé de Sainte-Rose. The Alert Level was raised to 2-2 and the Aviation Color Code to Orange.."

If the Hot Rock Swelling Under New England Is a Volcano, the Region Is Less Stable Than Scientists Thought

Is New England about to blow? A rising blob of hot rock recently detected under Vermont suggests the region might not be as stable as scientists once thought.

Scientists from Rutgers University found evidence that heated rock is swelling underneath the Appalachian mountains—which could mean a new volcano is forming. The rising blob is the smaller and slower cousin of magma pockets that geologists have observed under well-established volcanoes, according to National Geographic. The research was published in a new paper in the scientific journal Geology.

Fortunately any such volcano will not blow any time soon. The researchers collected the data using the National Science Foundation's EarthScope program, which monitors the North American continent for seismic activity. If the data prove accurate, geologists are going to have to re-evaluate a few things—maybe New England isn't as stable as everyone assumed after all.

“Our study challenges the established notion of how the continents on which we live behave,” lead author Vadim Levin of Rutgers’s Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences told Rutgers University. “It challenges the textbook concepts taught in introductory geology classes.”

Orange alert for Kick Em Jenny volcano as activities increase 12 March 2018

An Orange alert has been issued for the Kick Em Jenny Volcano due to heightened activity.

Grenada's National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) through the technical support provided by the University of the West Indies Seismic Research Center in Port-of –Spain, Trinidad issued an advisory on Tuesday indicating that the alert level has been raised from Yellow to Orange.

The statement said that with this increase in the alert level, ships and other marine operators are asked to observe the exclusion zone of 5 km/3.1miles.

NaDMA in collaboration with the University of the West Indies Seismic Research Center will continue to monitor the activities of Kick em’ Jenny and will update the public as necessary, the release said.

Japanese volcano that starred in James Bond film erupts, threatening to eject hot debris


 Flights grounded, as cars and buildings covered in ash after two violent eruptions

A Japanese volcano that appeared in a James Bond film has erupted, shooting smoke and ash thousands of feet into the sky and grounding dozens of flights.

Residents living near Shinmoedake were warned about flying rocks and pyroclastic flows - hot gas and volcanic debris that race down the slopes at high speeds, incinerating or vaporising everything in their path. 

Japan's meteorological agency said the volcano, seen in the 1967 James Bond film You Only Live Twice, violently erupted violently several times, in its biggest explosion since 2011. 

Grey smoke can be billowing into the sky and orange lava rising to the mouth of the crater on Japan's southernmost main island of Kyushu.

At the foot of the volcano, pedestrians in Kirishima city wore surgical masks or covered their noses with hand towels. Others used umbrellas to protect from falling ash, which covered cars and buildings.

About 80 flights in and out of the nearby Kagoshima airport were cancelled.

The 4,660ft volcano started having smaller eruptions last week.

The meteorological agency said the volcanic activity was expected to continue.

Japan, which sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", has 110 active volcanoes and is prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. 

An eruption of Mount Ontake in 2014 killed around 60 people.

The ‘Ring of Fire’ is on high alert. This horseshoe-shaped geological disaster area comprises over half of the world’s active volcanoes as well as subductions zones and plate movements responsible for earthquakes and, sometimes, subsequent tsunamis… Well, within the last few days, several countries situated on the ‘Ring of Fire’ such as the Philippines, Japan, Indonesia, and Alaska were hit by unprecedented volcanic eruptions and powerful earthquakes. Is this increased seismic activity due to the slowing down of Earth rotation? Or is the Super Blue Moon eclipse on January 31, 2018, playing with our nerves? Nobody knows… But some impressive seismic and volcanic events are going on right now on Earth.
