"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

Mount Aso volcano in Japan causes travel chaos in first eruption in 22 years

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/mount-aso-volcano-in-j...

The previous eruption of Mount Aso was in 1991

Plumes of volcanic ash caused flight cancellations and disruptions yesterday in the first eruption of a Japanese volcano in more than 22 years.

Mount Aso - situated on Kyushu island 625 miles (1,005km) south from the capital Tokyo - spewed out lava, debris and smoke while expelling columns of ash 3,280 feet (1km) into the sky, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

Update on the Fogo Volcano eruption off W. Africa.

Lava Flows from Fogo Volcano Threaten Portela (Nov 25)

The northern lava flow branch has started to enter the village of Portela and today destroyed and/or damaged several buildings, including the headquarters of the Fogo Nature Park.

The village, located at the northern end of the main road inside the caldera, is at risk of being cut of by lava flows: If the main road becomes covered, only a difficult and long passage to the NE via Monte Velha remains as land evacuation route.

Local news sources and recent video footage suggest an increase in activity. Several vents have opened at the fissure on the southwestern foot of the Pico del Fogo cone. Activity at most of the vents is violently explosive with significant gas and ash emissions

For this reason, Cabo Verde Airlines has canceled all flights departing and arriving in Sao Felipe Airport on the west coast.

The SO2 gas plume from the eruption has spread to the north and already reached the northern Cape Verde islands. Authorities recommend people to drink plenty of water.

Since the beginning of the eruption, inhabitants of the Cha caldera have been using trucks and various other available vehicles to evacuate goods from the threatened area. Local media report fuel shortages which makes the situation more difficult.

Looting and equipment theft, in particular from the headquarter building of the Nature Park, which only had been opened in March this year, add to the problems.

The eruption's heaviest economic damage is probably the destruction of vinyards in the area. The lava flows threaten the storage cellar with approx. 100,000 liters of wine.

To manage the volcanic crisis, a crisis cabinet was set in place by the government.

Update on the Fogo Volcano eruption off West Africa...

A rare eruption of Cape Verde volcano Pico do Fogo, its biggest in decades, caused the closure of the airport and evacuation of local residents.

A photograph posted on the local RTC TV station website showed a huge plume of smoke rising into the sky, visible from the capital Praia on a neighbouring island.

"Things could deteriorate in the coming moments, in the coming hours," prime minister Jose Maria Neves said in a statement.

"We've called on people to heed the authorities' instructions, people should abandon Cha das Caldeiras."

The main road which provides access to Chã das Caldeiras is cut because the lava coming out of the volcano was already destroyed three poles of CVTelecom.

The Cova Tina location is under heavy "rain" of fine sand.

The smell of sulfur from the eruption have also reached the city of S. Filipe.

The eruption has increased in intensity, having opened another crater in the volcano, totaling three craters.

However, even with strong smell of sulfur and dust spread through the air, some people have refused to leave their homes.

The volcano last erupted in 1995, causing minor damage.

Mexico's Colima Volcano Spews Rock and Ash (Nov 21)

The Colima volcano in western Mexico has erupted, sending a column of ash about 3 miles (5 kilometers) into the air.

Mexico's federal civil defense office said Friday that ash has fallen on towns as far as 15 miles (25 kilometers) from the peak, which is also known as the Volcano of Fire.

Glowing hot rock tumbled down the volcano's flanks over a mile (2 kilometers) from the crater.

Ash fall was reported in the town of Queseria, Colima, and the towns of Tonila and Zapotiltic in the neighboring state of Jalisco.

"We recommend that people cover their nose and mouth, protect sources of potable water, and avoid dumping ash in drainage systems because it hardens with the moisture," national civil protection coordinator Luis Felipe Puente told Foro television.

Alaska's Pavlof Volcano Eruption Intensifies (Nov 15)

Scientists at the Alaska Volcano Observatory Saturday raised the alert level for Pavlof Volcano from "watch" (orange) to "warning" (red) Saturday as an ash cloud rose 30,000 feet above sea level.

Planes are being warned to avoid airspace near an erupting Alaska volcano.

"The intensity of seismic tremor has increased significantly over the past 6 hours," AVO wrote in an activity alert.

The National Weather Service said on Saturday ash was being blown to the west and northwest of Pavlof Volcano.

Pavlof began erupting three days ago, pushing lava out from a vent near its summit. On Friday, the ash cloud reached 16,000ft.

Alaska Volcano Observatory geophysicist Dave Schneider said the eruption intensified at 6am on Saturday, sending the ash cloud higher. Schneider said it was not clear how long the eruption will last, as Pavlof’s eruptions may last for weeks or months with varying levels of intensity.

Iceland Eruption Has Produced a Cubic Kilometer of Lava (Nov 6) 

More than a cubic kilometer of magma covering 70 square km has been produced by the Bardarbunga volcano.  The Holuhraun fissure eruption continues with amazing stability. 

This volume of magma is 6 times greater than what surfaced during the eruption in Eyjafjallajökull in 2010 and 4 times greater than the 2011 Grímsvötn eruption.

The depression in the ice above the caldera has deepened by 44 meters (144 feet).

Around 200 earthquakes were detected in the caldera between Monday and yesterday morning, according to the latest Status Report from the Civil Protection Department’s Scientific Advisory Board, published yesterday.

The energy of the geothermal areas in Bárðarbunga volcano in Vatnajökull now measures several hundred megawatts and the melting of glacial ice is estimated at approximately 2 cubic meters per second.

A sub-glacial eruption is still a possible future scenario and scientists remain on the alert.

Costa Rica’s Turrialba Volcano Eruptions Intensify (Nov 2)

The Turrialba Volcano has expelled rocks up to 1 meter in diameter at a distance of some 400 meters from the crater.

These were among the observations by volcanologists conducting weekend inspections in the area around Costa Rica’s Turrialba Volcano. Craters in the earth measured up to one meter in diameter from rocks shooting out from the volcano.

RSN volcanologist Gino González Ilama said the areas of impact are located on the south side of the volcano and cover 80 percent of the slope up to 400 meters from the volcano’s crater.

“We observed the impact of volcanic rock that had caused several craters on the ground. We believe the rocks were shot out of the volcano at speeds greater than 100 kilometers per hour, and this proves there is strong activity inside,” González said.

Expelled ash again reached several areas north of San José, located 60 kilometers southwest of the volcano, and several areas in the provinces of Alajuela, Heredia and Limón. According to the RSN, it was the first time ash had appeared in Limón, falling on the city of Guápiles.

“The Turrialba Volcano is very active,” González said. “The hole formed after the first explosion has grown and is about 150 meters long and 100 meters wide. It’s getting bigger, and the volcano’s walls continue collapsing because explosions of gas, ash and rock are constant. We also found small amounts of lava.”

Volcanologists on Sunday reported two types of eruptions taking place: phreatic – which entails gases, mud and ash – and strombolian – which contains magma and ash.

The Red Cross in Turrialba has reported dozens of cases of respiratory complications in the communities of Santa Rosa, Tierra Blanca and Pacayas. Red Cross workers have distributed surgical masks in the communities that lie on the skirts of the volcano, and they are conducting air quality checks twice a day. Nausea, vomiting and difficult breathing are the most common symptoms. In some cases, farm workers have also reported skin irritation.

Up to 65 hectares of broccoli, potatoes, carrots, and cauliflowers have been impacted, although it is still too early to estimate losses. Dairy cows are a major concern, hence the need for evacuating livestock.

Acid rain is another concern for animals and plants in the region. High concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO2) have been detected by satellite imagery, and Costa Rica is expected to experience two more weeks of rain before the dry season begins. 

Turrialba Volcano started showing signs of activity in 2010 with phreatic explosions.

According to OVSICORI, magma hasn’t been expelled from the volcano since 1866.
