"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

Steamboat #geyser Yellowstone

may 20 2018

https://www.facebook.com/USGSVolcanoes/photos/a.984262971602264.107...

For those of you you are #Yellowstone watchers...#Steamboat #geyser is experiencing a water eruption again. Right now.
It started at about 9:49 PM local time. Approximately 90 minutes after eruption is when increased discharge is seen at the Tantalus stream gage. Follow along at https://waterdata.usgs.gov/mt/nwis/uv?site_no=06036940, but note that there is also some precipitation that is resulting in an increase in water flow, too.

Seismic record is from station YNM at the Norris Museum. The thick trace at the bottom of the record denotes the eruption.

Situation at Kilauea Volcano ‘steadily worsening’ (May 20) 

Kilauea Volcano has been spewing lava and belching hazardous gases on Hawaii’s Big Island since early May, and the BBC reported on Sunday, May 20, 2018, that the situation for residents is “steadily worsening.”

At the summit, a large explosion happened at around midnight on Friday night (May 18) into Saturday, sending a plume of volcanic gas some 10,000 feet (two miles, or 3 km) into the air. Early in the day on May 20, media outlets were reporting the first serious injury from Kilauea. 

The injured man was sitting on a balcony at his home when “lava spatter” – projectile molten rock – landed on him. “It hit him on the shin and shattered everything there down on his leg,” a spokeswoman for the county mayor said.

Lava spatters can weigh “as much a refrigerator,” she told Reuters.

The man has reportedly been hospitalized with serious injuries.

In the meantime, on Saturday night, May 19, Hawaii Civil Defense confirmed that lava from Kilauea’s Fissure 20 had entered the ocean, creating conditions for toxic laze. Laze is what happens when molten lava hits sea water; a chemical reaction creates “hazy and noxious conditions” laced with hydrochloric acid and tiny particles of glass. USGS said:

Even the wispy edges of it can cause skin and eye irritation and breathing difficulties.

Eruption of lava and ground cracking in the area of Leilani Estates subdivision continues. Beginning yesterday and into today, the rate of lava eruption has increased. Fissure 17 is weakly active now, and Fissures 16-20 have merged into a continuous line of spatter and fountaining. Flows from the consolidated Fissure 20 crossed upper Pohoiki road late yesterday afternoon and continued flowing southward. This afternoon two flows from the merged fissure complex have joined less than a mile from the coast and continue to flow southward between Pohoiki and Opihikao Roads. The lava flow from Fissure 18 is stalled. It is unknown whether the flows will continue to advance, or stop, and new lava flows are likely given the rate of activity seen at the rift zone. Volcanic gas emissions remain very high.

More than 1,700 people have already evacuated their homes, particularly in the area around Leilani Estates, located in Hawaii’s District of Puna, where 27 homes had been destroyed as of May 9.

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano erupts from summit, shooting ash

 https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/hawaii-s-kilauea-volcano-erupt...

 Hawaii's Kilauea volcano erupted from its summit before dawn Thursday (May 17), shooting a dusty plume of ash about 30,000 feet into the sky.

The explosion came at about 6 a.m. local time (12 p.m. ET) after two weeks of volcanic activity and the opening of more than a dozen fissures east of the crater that spewed lava into neighborhoods, said Mike Poland, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey.

Residents who live in a nearby town reported light amounts of ash falling following the eruption..."

".. An Ashfall Advisory means that ash accumulation of less than one quarter inch is expected on boats. It is recommended that vessels be prepared to take appropriate counter measures before putting to sea or entering the advisory area.

Two weeks after a series of cracks began opening beneath the area, the lava from Kilauea is showing no sign of stopping. Wednesday afternoon, open pits or "vents" of lava roared and threw cinder-like ash into the surrounding jungle, igniting smoldering forest fires.

The lava seeping from Kilauea has forced the evacuation of nearly 2,000 people. More than two dozen homes have been destroyed in the rural Leilani Estates neighborhood area about 35 miles from Hilo, the island’s largest city.

The volcano is in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which has been closed since May 11..."

Alaskan volcano's threat level raised to orange after explosion

May 5, 2018

https://edition.cnn.com/2018/05/05/us/alaska-volcano/index.html

CNN)An explosion at an Alaskan volcano has prompted authorities to raise its threat level to orange.

Local seismic and infrasound sensors recorded the small explosion Friday night at Mount Cleveland, which is in the Aleutian Island range southwest of mainland Alaska, the Alaska Volcano Observatory said.

The explosion produced a small ash cloud reaching up to 22,000 ft above sea level, the observatory said an aviation advisory.
"Explosions from Cleveland typically produce relatively small volcanic ash clouds that dissipate within hours; however, more significant ash emissions are possible," it said.

A few small earthquakes were also recorded at the volcano during the previous several days.
An orange alert means the volcano is "exhibiting heightened or escalating unrest" according to the AVO

Ten thousand told to evacuate their homes as Hawaii's Kilauea volcano spews lava into towns and cracks streets in half after more than 250 quakes rocked the Big Island in scary seismic explosion

  • Warning sirens sounded across the Big Island on Thursday after lava began spewing from Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano
  • Hawaii County Civil Defense urged the 10,000 residents of Leilani Estates, in Puna, to flee the approaching lava streams
  • Resident Ikaika Marzo said he saw 'fountains of lava' shooting 150 feet in the air and molten lava spreading down Mohala Street in Leilani Estates
  •  Thick smoke was also seen rising from the Puu Oo vent on Kilauea
  • Eruption comes after multiple earthquakes rocked the Puna district 
  • The American Red Cross of Hawaii has opened an emergency shelter at Pahoa Community Center for evacuating residents

Ten thousand Hawaii residents have been ordered to evacuate their homes after the island's Kilauea volcano began spewing lava.  

Warning sirens sounded across the Big Island on Thursday as Hawaii County Civil Defense urged residents of Leilani Estates, in Puna, to flee the approaching lava streams. 

Lower Puna resident Ikaika Marzo told the Honolulu Star Advertiser that he saw 'fountains of lava' shooting 150 feet in the air and molten lava spreading down Mohala Street in Leilani Estates.

'It sounds like a jet engine. It's going hard,' he said. 'There are a lot of elderly people who need help to get their stuff out,' Marzo said.

Thick smoke was also seen rising from the Puu Oo vent on Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano.

The American Red Cross of Hawaii has opened an emergency shelter at Pahoa Community Center for evacuating residents.

The eruption comes after multiple earthquakes rocked the Puna district in recent days. The crater floor of the Puu Oo vent collapsed during the tremors, earlier this week, which sent lava flowing ten miles down the mountain towards the community on the southeast coastline.

The U.S. Geological Survey says new ground cracks were reported Thursday afternoon. Hot vapor emerged from a crack and spattering lava began to erupt. 

Hawaii County Civil Defense said a mandatory evacuation is in effect for residents in Leilani Estates, from Luana Street to Mohala Street, stretching to the end of Leilani Avenue and Pohoiki Road.

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.”
