"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

Strong Eruptions, Continuous Explosions at Japan's Sakurajima Volcano (May 21)

Two strong explosions at Sakurajima produced ash plums that rose to 17,000 ft / 5 km altitude yesterday.

The activity was followed by continuous, noisy explosions and ash venting which lasted and slowly decreased during the night.

Today, two normal-sized explosions have taken place so far.

Volcanic activity update for May 20.

Sakurajima Volcano (Kyushu, Japan)

After a very busy 17 May, with several strong explosions sending ash plumes to up to 16,000 ft (4.5 km) altitude, the volcano has been relatively calm during 18 and most of 19 May.

A filming team of VolcanoDiscovery being on location, we could observe hour-long phases of near-continuous mild to moderate ash venting. After approx. 10 hours of almost no visible activity, a  strong explosion occurred yesterday night at around 11 pm, lasting several minutes, producing numerous lightning and heavy ash fall on the eastern sector.



Reventador Volcano (Ecuador)

The volcano's activity remains elevated. Mild to moderate explosions occur frequently from the summit vent, where viscous lava is being extruded and also produces an active lava flow, approx. 300 m long on the southwestern flank.

IGPEN reported dozens of explosions on most days, and up to more than 60 on a peak of activity on 8 May.


Turrialba Volcano (Costa Rica)

Several new mild to moderately strong ash eruptions have occurred at the volcano during the past days.

In particular, on 16 May, one of the most intense phases of ash emissions so far took place from the volcano's western summit crater between midnight and 15:40 local time. Ash plumes extended up to 50 km to the west and caused mild ash fall in places as Heredia and Alajuela towns.

A 5 km exclusion zone around the crater is in place.




Piton de la Fournaise Volcano (La Réunion)

The eruption continues with strong lava effusion.

As of 19 May evening, the lava flow had been at 3 km from the coastal road, having advanced 750 m during the past 24 hours.

Video: Dramatic Footage Shows Volcano Drama

A group of sightseers get more than they bargained for when Nicaragua's Telica volcano roared into life.

Dramatic footage has of emerged of people just metres away from Nicaragua's Telica volcano as it spewed dark clouds of ash and gas high into the sky.

The central American country's most-active volcano let out a first, loud explosion on 10 May.

Nearly 50 small gas and ash explosions together with seven microearthquakes have since been reported.

According reports nearby farming communities and homes have been covered with ash and soot from Telica - a 1,060m (3,475ft) volcano in Leon province.

Although no evacuation order has been issued, authorities are bracing for a possible escalation in volcanic activity.

"We have designed a contingency plan for people who find they need to evacuate their property and to deal with their animals," said police chief Omar Espinoza.

Nicaraguan volcano dusts towns in ash

Published: 6:16 pm, Monday, 11 May 2015


 Nicaragua's Telica volcano, the country's most active, has spewed fiery rocks and gases, dusting nearby towns with ash.

The volcano has registered 30 small eruptions since it rumbled to life on Thursday, the strongest yet occurring on Sunday night, according to the Nicaraguan Geological Institute.

'It spat hot rocks, gas and ash, reaching a height of 400 metres,' the agency said in a statement.

The flaming rocks caused vegetation on the volcano's slopes to catch fire, and fiery balls of burning foliage created a spectacle for observers.

The nearby towns of Posoltega and Guanacastal were dusted in ash following the eruptions, though no major damage or injuries were reported.

Telica, which is 1,061 metres high, is located in the foothills of the Maribios, about 112km northwest of the Nicaraguan capital Managua.

As Turrialba Volcano erupts again, scientists warn of increased health risks, economic damage

Lindsay Fendt

5 hours ago

At 4:55 a.m. Sunday, ash spilled from the crater of Costa Rica’s Turrialba Volcano for nearly an hour. Though the ash barely left the crater, located about 67 kilometer northeast of the capital San José, the wind carried it into the Central Valley — for the umpteenth time in recent months.

The eruption comes less than a week after the volcano shot a tower of ash 2.5 kilometers into the air, shutting down Juan Santamaría International Airport for the third time since March.

Since Turrialba Volcano re-awoke last October, volcanic ash has dirtied homes, damaged crops and mucked up travel plans. With its frequent eruptions, the volcano has gone from an interesting diversion to a nuisance for nearby residents and visitors.

And experts say the worst is yet to come.

Future eruptions, they say, could jeopardize the health of humans and the environment. They could also cause serious economic damage.

“There is a very high possibility that [the volcano] will reach a higher level of activity,” said Lidier Esquivel, the chief investigator of risk management for the National Emergency Commission (CNE).

Scientists with both the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) and the National Seismological Network (RSN) expect Turrialba’s eruptions to gradually increase over the next few months until the volcano is erupting on a near weekly basis. Scientists have also confirmed that lava has reached the surface.

“The volcano is already throwing lava, it is fragmented lava that is creating the ash,” Guillermo Alvarado, coordinator for volcanic and seismic threats and monitoring for the Costa Rican Electricity Institute, said during a volcano roundtable event last week.

Alvarado said these lava fragments actually create a natural form of glass, which when inhaled can pose serious health risks to both animals and humans. Children, the elderly and people with pre-existing respiratory problems are especially at risk when breathing in ash.

“At this point there have been very few serious health problems to arise, but ash can cause respiratory problems, throat problems and burning in the eyes or skin.” Esquivel said. “As more people are regularly exposed to volcanic ash, we expect to see these problems in a larger portion of the population.”

TIMELINE: A history of major volcanic eruptions in Costa Rica

The ash can also kill plants, contaminate water supplies and damage electronic equipment.

The ash has already done its fair share of damage. Within 5 kilometers of the volcano, ash and acid rain have killed off crops, damaged homes and contaminated rivers. Three schools in the area have been forced to close each time the volcano erupts. And there have been reports of some residents developing respiratory problems.

If conditions continue to worsen, the area may have to be evacuated. 

While the immediate vicinity of the volcano is the most vulnerable to ash damage, emergency officials are growing increasingly concerned about the rest of the country.

“With the right wind, depending on the weather, some of these volcanic episodes will bring ash over San José and the surrounding metropolitan area,” Esquivel said. “This will happen more often if the eruptions increase.”

San José’s greater metropolitan area houses more than half of Costa Rica’s population and virtually all of the country’s industry. According to Esquivel, the city’s high concentration of electronic equipment is at great risk for damage as the presence of ash becomes more frequent.

The National Emergency Commission is preparing for the worst case scenario, where Turrialba’s explosions become much stronger, similar to those of the Irazú volcano in the 1960s, which regularly showered San José with ash. 

“We can’t predict with 100 percent certainty what will happen on any given day,” Esquivel said. “All we can do is be prepared.”
