"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

Last minute. Tungurahua volcano explosion. Pillate. Ecuador
SUNDAY Apr. 22, 2012 22:59

A strong explosion today in the Tungurahua volcano in the central Andes of Ecuador, gravel brought down in the town of Pillate, giant neighbor, said the Geophysical Institute (GI) of the National Polytechnic School. The explosion, heard as a "shot" occurred at 08.02 local time (13.02 GMT) and immediately detected a slight tremor or shaking, constant "high energy", says the latest report by the IG. The high clouds in the area has prevented scientists who monitor the behavior of the colossus in the area of ​​the volcano, direct observations, Efe said a source at the "Observatorio Guadalupe", the IG is nearby. For his part, Javier Mallorga, who heads the Emerging Operations Committee (COE) in the town of Pelileo surrounding the volcano, said that activated a "contingency plan to be prepared" to a possible increase in activity. Mallorga told Efe that the explosion has led to the fall of gravel "in the form of grains of rice" in neighboring Pillate and, at times, can be heard bellowing out moderate intensity inside the giant. Pillate is located approximately 12 kilometers west of the volcano and, according to early reports, it would be the only people affected by the strong explosion this morning. Baños de Agua Santa, one of the major tourist destinations and at the foot of the volcano, maintains normal activities with his usual intense bustle of visitors, said Mallorga. Tungurahua, of 5,016 meters, current eruptive process began in 1999 and since then has interspersed periods of high activity and periods of relative calm. Located about 135 kilometers south of Quito, Tungurahua is one of the fifty volcanoes that rise in Ecuador, some in activity Reventador in the Andean foothills that flow into the Amazon.

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.

Volcanic activity recorded at mountain near Mexico CityApril 17, 2012

Mexico City (CNN) -- Scientists recorded continuing volcanic activity Tuesday in Mexico's Popocatepetl volcano, which sits just southeast of Mexico City and its more than 19 million residents.

Local government officials and residents began taking precautions, with schools in the zone near the volcano closing Tuesday and the government advising residents to close windows and avoid the outdoors.

Activity had decreased in Popocatepetl overnight, but eight exhalations of low intensity were recorded, Mexico's National Center for the Prevention of Disasters said.

A low-amplitude tremor lasting 40 minutes early Tuesday morning was also felt, the agency said.

Officials placed the alert at Popocatepetl -- which means "Smoking Mountain" in the native Nahuatl language -- at Yellow Level 3. This means there is a probability of explosive activity of an intermediate to high scale, an eruption of lava and a spewing of ash.

A glow was visible inside the crater overnight, the agency said.

Popocatepetl is one of Mexico's highest peaks and last had a major eruption in 2000. It is located in a national park southeast of Mexico City and can be seen from there on a clear day.

Already, scientists have observed a continuous column of water vapor and moderate amounts of ash rising from the crater. Falling ash was reported in the city of Puebla, the capital of the state.

A 7-mile perimeter around the volcano has been cleared, and the Puebla state government asked residents to limit travel between cities near the volcano.

To guard against falling ash, residents should close doors and windows, cover water tanks and food and avoid outdoor activities, the government said.

APRIL 16 - Russian Shiveluch Volcano Spews Ash to 9,500 Meters

Russia's northernmost active volcano is churning out ash to a height of 9,500 meters (over 31,000 feet) in the country's Far East, local scientists reported on Tuesday.

The 3,283-meter (10,771-foot) Shiveluch volcano increased activity in May 2009 and has been periodically spewing ash from three to ten kilometers.

“A powerful eruption of ashes took place 05.59 a.m. local time [17:59 GMT on Monday], a source at the Far Eastern Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said.

The official said the column of ashes could be clearly seen from a distance of 40 kilometers spreading to the east.

“It is the most powerful eruption this year,” the expert said.

According to scientists, the volcanic activity over the past two-three years has significantly altered the contour of the volcano with the crater increasing in size by 50% and the slopes becoming far steeper than before.

Although the current eruption poses no immediate threat to nearby settlements, the ensuing ash fallouts could be hazardous to health and the environment.

The clouds of volcanic ash could also pose threat to air traffic because the tiny particles cause problems with aircraft engine turbines.

So far, local authorities issued no warnings to air traffic in the area.

There are more than 150 volcanoes on Kamchatka, 29 of them active.

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

2.9 quake relocated to Fogo Caldera/Cabo Verde :


Cape Verde Volcano Observatory (OVCV)
Earthquake of Fogo (Cape Verde) relocated inside Chã das Caldeiras

The magnitude of the earthquake was of 2.9 on the Richter scale and focus to 2.9 kilometers deep

The permanent instrumental network Cape Verde Volcano Observatory (OVCV) for monitoring volcanic island of Fogo recorded'' '52 at 02:43 am (Cape Verde Time) of 12 April 2012 an earthquake whose epicenter was located on the island of Fogo, in particular within Chã das Caldeiras once it has re-evaluated the seismic event. The analysis of seismic records confirm that the magnitude of the earthquake was of 2.9 on the Richter scale, but localized the source of the seismic event at a depth much less than that provided by the preliminary analysis, to 2.9 kilometers. This latter observation would explain that the earthquake was felt in neighboring Cha das Caldeiras.

The earthquake was recorded by the 6 seismic stations of the permanent instrumental network of Cape Verde Volcano Observatory (OVCV), a new institution that was created as a joint commitment of the Laboratório de Engenharia Civil of Cape Verde (LEC), the University of Cape Green (Uni-CV) and the National Serviço Civil Protecção (SNPC) of Cape Verde to improve and optimize the work aimed at reducing the volcanic risk in Cape Verde and the management of the many benefits (geotourism, geothermal, etc.). it takes to live in a volcanically active area such as Cape Verde.

The Volcano Observatory seismic network of Cape Verde (OVCV) has recently been installed by scientists and technicians of the Institute of Technology and Renewable Energies (ITER), the Andalusian Institute of Geophysics (IAG), University of Granada, the Laboratório de Engenharia Civil Cape Verde (LEC) of the Universidade de Cabo Verde (Uni-CV) and the National Serviço Civil Protecção (SNPC) of Cape Verde. This scientific and technical cooperation Hispanic Cape Verde is part of the project "MAKAVOL - Capacity building R & D to contribute to reducing volcanic risk in Macaronesia (MAC/3/C161)" co-financed by the transnational cooperation program of the European Union Madeira-Canary-Azores (MAC 2007-2013), project monitoring EPHESTOS volcanic field study of volcanoes and seismic waves in the framework of a scientific cooperation agreement between the Cabildo Insular de Tenerife and the University of Cape Verde (Uni-CV) for 2011-2014 which aims to include the acquisition of instrumentation for training and research in the field of volcanism that will go to Cape Verde Volcano Observatory (OVCV ) and the development of the necessary tools for training in handling equipment and to implement training programs and exchange in the field of risk prevention volcano.
