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

Active volcanoes (Sep 28, 2012)


Currently active volcanoes (Aug 23, 2015)


"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

Two Costa Rican Volcanoes Erupting (May 1)

Two Costa Rican volcanoes, Turrialba in Cartago province and Rincón de la Vieja in Guanacaste began erupting over the weekend.

An explosion of ash and rocks was recorded at Turrialba Volcano at 3 a.m. on Saturday. The dark column of ash was visible next to the white column of vapor and gases that has been rising from the crater over the past few weeks.

Once again, access to Turrialba volcano and national park has been closed off due to the near-continuous ash emissions. 

Small explosions have also continued. Between Friday morning and the early hours of Monday, RSN recorded more than 200 explosions, many of them hurling ash and rock out of the crater.

One of these explosions, at around 6 a.m. Monday, reached two kilometers high, RSN reported.

A five kilometre (3.1 mile) perimeter around the volcano has been established, the Comisión Nacional de Emergencias (CNE) – national emergency commission – said Sunday.

“Due to the constant activity at the Turrialba volcano and the arrival of tourists and the curious, authorities,” have decided to restrict access, said the CNE statement.

The Red Sismológica Nacional(RSN) – National Seismology Network – registered at least six eruptions on Sunday morning that released gas and ash into the atmosphere.

On Monday afternoon, the National Emergency Commission (CNE) called on the population to remain calm. CNE President Iván Brenes said the increase in the volcano’s activity has caused classes to be suspended at five public schools in Turrialba.

He said officials are monitoring crops for the presence of ash, and checking for possible harm to animals on the numerous dairy farms in the northern part of Turrialba canton.

A prolonged release of ash along with a high level of seismic activity was registered almost all day on Saturday, the RSN said.

Area residents are being asked to remain outside the restricted area around the volcano, which is located within the Turrialba national park, located some 70 kilometres (40 miles) east of San Jose.

Turrialba has entered its most active eruption phase since October 2014. On March 2015, the ash spewed from the volcano reached the greater metropolitan area of San Jose, forcing the temporary closure of the international airport on three separate occasions.

At the northern end of the country, in Guanacaste province, OVSICORI reported a moderate explosion at Rincón de la Vieja Volcano on Sunday at 2:37 p.m.

OVSICORI instruments also recorded an increase in seismic activity for some 11 minutes following the explosion.

Minor eruption forms new crater on White Island - NEW ZEALAND

30 APRIL 2016


The White Island crater from the volcano camera situated at the abandoned sulphur works.

A new crater has formed on White Island following a minor eruption on Wednesday but it's likely little or no magma was ejected.

During an aerial inspection of the site on Whakaari, volcanologists found the new crater in the northeast corner of the complex and found evidence of a landslide. Hot translucent gas was being emitted from the new vent but GeoNet said gas levels were only slightly elevated.

Seismic activity remains low and the Volcanic Alert Level remains at Level 2.

At about 9.50pm on Wednesday, the volcanic island in the Bay of Plenty erupted, covering at least 80 per cent of the floor of the main crater and up two sides of the crater wall with a dark-green ash.

First White Island rumbles, now Mt Ruapehu is making volcanologists sit up - NEW ZEALAND NZ HERALD


29 APRIL 2016. First it was White Island's crater lake that was making scientists sit up - and now it is the one atop Mt Ruapehu. But the timing of White Island's latest bout of unrest, which culminated in an overnight eruption this week, and a volcanic earthquake swarm 241km away beneath Mt Ruapehu's crater lake should be seen only as a coincidence, a volcanologist says.

This afternoon, GNS Science reported that the mountain's crater lake had risen from 25C in mid-April to 40C.

The lake temperature had been rising since late 2015, at a similar rate to that observed in March 2011, April 2014 and February 2015. And over the past few days, scientists had been recording an earthquake swarm beneath the lake - something that has been an uncommon occurrence there over recent years.

Powerful Eruption at Guatemala's Santiaguito Volcano (Apr 19)

Santiaguito volcano, in the western province of Quetzaltenango, erupted powerfully on Tuesday at around 8am local time.

Pyroclastic flows traveled several kilometers to the S and SE and an ash column rose to 4.5 km altitude, and drifted 25 km SW.

Moderate to strong ash fall affected areas to the W and SW including Loma Linda (6 km distance), San Marcos Palajunoj (16 km), Retalhuleu (25 km).

Media have reported that fine ash particles have fallen on Quetzaltenango city, some 200 kilometers (125 miles) west of the capital.

Mexico's Popocatepetl Volcano Erupts, Closes Airport (Apr 18)

A dramatic explosion at Mexico's Popocatepetl sent ash 2 miles high and glowing rock as far as a mile from the crater, forcing the closure of Puebla airport.

Mexico's national disaster prevention agency reports that the eruption began around 2:30 a.m. (3:30 EDT; 0730 GMT) Monday.

Officials are urging residents to wear masks to avoid inhaling the fine grit that has covered houses and cars.

Civil Protection authorities warned against approaching the volcano.

'It is important to respect the security radius of 12 kilometers (seven and a half miles) due to the danger of incandescent fragments being emitted,' national coordinator Luis Felipe Puente tweeted on Monday.

Airport Closures Continue from Mount Bromo's Ongoing Eruption (Apr 10)

Abdulrachman airport in Malang, East Java, has been closed again due to volcanic activities of the nearby Mount Bromo.

Since April 9, the mountain's volcanic activities has been increasing and it has been spewing ashes and other volcanic materials to the direction of Malang regency and its surrounding areas.

Mount Bromo began ejecting ash and thick smoke on April 1.

Based on the monitoring done by the Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Center (PVMBG), ashes began to spew from the crater of the mountain at around 7:32am and it moved to west and south west at the height of 1,200 meters from the peak of the mountain.

The closure of the airport began on Sunday, April 10 at 1:30pm.

A Batik Air flight and one by Sriwijaya Air, both from Jakarta, had to be redirected to Juanda Airport in East Java's capital Surabaya, 90 kilometers away.

All other flights to and from the Malang airport, some 30 kilometers from the volcano, had to be canceled.

Juanda Airport spokeswoman Liza Anindya said officials are bracing for a possible influx of passengers if the closure of the airport at Malang continues.

An earthquake of magnitude 4.2 hit the Bárðarbunga volcano – under the famous Vatnajökull glacier in Iceland – just after midnight last night.
This is the largest earthquake hitting the region since the last volcanic eruption of Bárðarbunga that ended in February 2015.

The earthquake was followed by a dozen of aftershocks, the largest measured M 3.5 and occurred at 1:01.

I live just over 100 miles from the park.   Nothing on the News about any quakes happening.   All is quiet.

Violent Explosions at Japan's Sakurajima Volcano (Apr 4)

The volcano has returned to a very active state in recent days, producing multiple strong vulcanian explosions that showered the upper crater area with incandescent bombs, and generating ash plumes that rose up to 15,000 ft (4.5 km) altitude.
