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

Increased Seismic Activity in Leewards

By the Caribbean Journal staff

There is increased seismic activity around the Leeward Islands, according to the Seismic Research Centre in Trinidad. The Eastern Caribbean is a seismically active area, and the Unit said there was no need to panic — as there are hundred of earthquakes in the seismically active area in and around the region each year.

Increase in Seismic Activity at Montserrat Volcano Forces Zone Closure

By the Caribbean Journal staff

An “noticeable” increase in seismic activity at the Soufirere Hills Volcano has resulted in the closure of the Zone C area near the volcano, which had been reopened for daytime entry in December.

Dr Paul Cole, director of the Montserrat Volcano Observatory, told a radio station Friday that it was a precautionary measure as authorities continue to monitor the volcano.

“Following two volcano-tectonic swarms on the March 22 and 23, 2012 involving 49 and 54 events respectively, mild ash venting began at Soufriere Hills Volcano at around 8:00am local time on March 23,” the MVO said in a statement. “The venting was sourced from the floor of the Feb. 11, 2010 collapse scar, immediately south of the old English’s crater wall and to the west of the long-lived hottest fumarole previously identified.”

The Zone C area, which is comprised of Cork Hill, Weekes, Foxes Bay, Richmond Hill, Delvins and extends 500 metres out to sea is part of the island’s exclusion zone.

It reopened in December 2011, after the hazard level in the area was lowered. The level will likely not be lowered, however, despite the area’s closure.

According to the statement, the ash venting was “clearly pulsatory,” and sent ash 6,000 feet above sea level. It sent black jets of ash rising a few hundred metres above the floor of the collapse scar.

The activity was described as “phreatic,” meaning activity formed when superheated rock meets groundwater, causing the rocks to fragment and generate ash.

“[Volcano-tectonic] earthquakes are related to fracturing rocks probably as a result of increases in pressure,” the statement said. “It is likely that these increases and the resulting earthquakes are related to uprising magma below the volcano.”

Similar types of activity have apparently occurred at the volcano up to several months prior to magma extrusion, both in 2005 and 2008.

Montserrat’s Zone C, Closed Due to Activity at Soufriere Hills, Reo...

By the Caribbean Journal staff

Montserrat’s Zone C on the volcanic risk map has reopened for daytime entry after being closed due to activity at the Soufriere Hills volcano.

The zone reopened last week, according to Governor Adrian Davis.

The area, which comprises Cork Hill, Weekes, Foxes Bay, Richmond Hill, Delvins and extending out 500 metres to sea, is part of the Exclusion Zone.

It was closed in March after a “noticeable” increase in seismic activity. The Zone had reopened for daytime entry in December 2011 after the area’s hazard level was lowered.

Similar seismic activity had occurred at the volcano up to several months prior to reported magma extrusion in 2005 and 2008.

Access is now permitted from 8:00 AM to 4:00PM; boats are permitted to travel through the zone but must not stop.

“The public are asked to note that no entrance is allowed under any circumstances to Zone V on the volcanic risk map,” the Governor said in a release. “Anyone found in this zone is liable to be arrested and charged.”

UK to Conduct Montserrat Seabed Survey

By the Caribbean Journal staff

The United Kingdom’s HMF Protector will be in Montserrat next week to conduct surveys of the island’s seabed.

The role of the ship is to conduct surveys as present charts are out of date — and given changes caused by volcanic activity, there is a need to have more accurate images of the conditions in the waters around the island, according to Richard Aspin, communications officer for the office of Governor Adrian Davis.

The information will both help ships needing to come into the harbour and provide better information for general shipping purposes.

The ship will also be aping the Carrs Bay seabed area to prepare for the proposed construction of its new port.

The HMS Protector is one of the newest additions to the British Navy Fleet — it includes a flight deck and an echo sounder.

St Vincent Volcano “Not More Active”

By the Caribbean Journal staff

St Vincent and the Grenadines’ National Emergency Management Organization received a number of calls Thursday from citizens asking if the country’s La Soufriere volcano was erupting, with some accounts indicating odors of sulphur and smoke billowing from the volcano.

But there is no unusual activity or increase in seismic activity at the volcano, according to the Seismic Research Centre in Trinidad, which informed Howie Prince, Director of NEMO.

NEMO, which said the county continued to be affected by a trough system producing dense clouds and fogs, said rumors that the La Soufriere volcano had become more active were “not true.”

The organization attributed the “illusion of smoke” to lightning flashes combined with low clouds and fog.

La Soufriere, which is also known as Soufriere St Vincent, is the highest peak in the country. Its most recenty violent eruption was in 1979.

Volcanic Activity on Pagan Island - Mariana Islands (May 10) -


Steam and gas plumes from a volcano in the Mariana Islands in the Pacific Ocean.

The image shows the activity on Pagan Island, the largest and one of the most active of the Marianas volcanoes, a NASA release reported Thursday.

Fires and smoke on the island was imaged on Tuesday by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer instrument aboard NASA's Terra satellite.

Pagan Island consists of two volcanoes connected by a narrow isthmus, and almost all of the historical eruptions of Pagan dating back to the 17th century have originated from North Pagan volcano.

The largest eruption of Pagan during historical time took place in 1981 and prompted the evacuation of the sparsely populated island, NASA aid.

The Marianas are an arc-shaped archipelago consisting of the summits of fifteen volcanic mountains, anchored at its south end by the island of Guam.

Popocatepetl Fallout Mandates Masks in Mexico City (May 7) -

MEXICO City is distributing 483,000 masks to protect residents from ash being spewing from the Popocatepetl volcano.

The Federal District's Public Safety Secretariat activated its strategic plan yesterday, distributing the masks and starting a series of "talks on the preventive measures that should be taken" by the eight million people living in the capital's boroughs.

A total of 222 teams from the secretariat went to the boroughs of Iztapalapa, Milpa Alta, Tlahuac, Xochimilco, Tlalpan, Venustiano Carranza and Iztacalco, all located on the east side of Mexico City, on Saturday.

The teams were deployed "to distribute the masks and create a culture of prevention and health protection via information talks", the secretariat said.

The teams focused on children and the elderly because they are the groups most likely to suffer from "lung diseases or chronic-degenerative" illnesses if exposed to ash, the secretariat said.

"The network of 32 hospitals and more than 220 health centres in Mexico City is ready to treat patients who inhale volcanic ash," Mayor Marcelo Ebrard's administration said.

The Popocatepetl volcano, which rises 5452 metres above sea level, is located about 64 kilometres from Mexico City.

Lava from Puu Oo spreads over coastal plain

Lava flows from Puu Oo vent are spreading over the coastal plain in Kalapana and over the weekend entered the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. But the flows are still about a half-mile from the ocean.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory released new lava photos taken Monday that show slow-moving breakouts of pahoehoe lava, with the characteristic look of bunched up rope as it cools.

A glow from the lava lake illuminates the gas plume coming from the vent at night. The lava level rises and falls as the volcano goes through inflation and deflation cycles. The lake level is about 230 feet below the floor of Halemaumau Crater.  Source

Update / April 19 :


As the volatile Popocatepetl volcano belches ash and blazing rock fragments into the air, authorities have amped up alert levels for the areas surrounding the mountain near Mexico City. Increased activity this week prompted Mexican authorities to raise the alert level to five on a seven-level scale. Civil defense dispatcher Dulce Maria told the AP that while the alert level remains high, no evacuations have been planned. The volcano straddles two Mexican states, Puebla and Morelos, about 40 miles south of Mexico City. Areas close to the volcano have been closed off, and people are warned to stay at least seven miles from the crater, where a lava dorm is forming, according to the National Disaster Prevention Center. Nearby residents are urged to cover their mouths to avoid inhaling ash, and to clean it from weak rooftops. On Wednesday, the center reported that some glowing pieces of rock had rolled about a quarter mile down the volcano's slopes. Schools in at least five towns have cancelled classes.

During an overflight on 13 April, an explosion from Sangay volcano was observed at 08:25 local time. It generated an ash and steam column of 2 km above the summit crater. A new vent was detected, both on visible and thermal images, located next to the active dome on the SE flank (Ñuñurqu). The activity in this area has intensified since October, when the last aerial survey had taken place. Extensive lava flows are descending on the SE flank of the dome and reaching the base of the cone. Strong fumarolic activity was seen on the SE flank of the dome and on the S flank of the central crater.     Source

Turrialba Volcano Erupts, Costa Rica (April 12)

Thursday morning the Turrialbla volcano unleashed a new series of eruptions, with experts converging on the colossus to take a close look at the smoke emanations coming from its centre.

According to the Red Sismológica Nacional (RSN) and the Observatorio Vulcanologio y Sismologico de Costa Rica (OVISCORI) the activity does not present any danger, but will continue to monitor the volcano much closer.

The alert followed reports by area residents of hearing a large rumble and then the sighting of dark coloured smoke, produced by gas fumes from the volcano.

Last January the volcano became a concern for residents and experts following the emanation of white gas fumes.

Several RSN experts are on their way to the top of the volcano and the OVISCORI is keeping the national park closed and under a green alert.
