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

Mexican volcano keeps locals awake

"We've never heard a noise like it,"

2012-04-24 12:02

Xalitzintla - Residents at the foot of Mexico's Popocatepetl volcano no longer sleep soundly since the towering mountain roared back into action over a week ago, spewing out a hail of rocks, steam and ash.

"We close our eyes, but we don't sleep much. In the past, there was only smoke but this time it's stronger," said Francisco Jimenez, who lives in the nearby town of Xalitzintla in central Mexico, 55km from Mexico City.
The volcano, Mexico's second highest peak at 5 452m, started rumbling and spurting high clouds of ash and steam on 13 April, provoking the authorities to raise the alert to level five on a seven-point scale.

North Sulawesi’s Mount Lokon erupted at 10:20 a.m. on Tuesday, after several days of increased activity, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) has announced.

The height at which lava shot out of the volcano was unknown because clouds were blocking the full view.

The agency declared areas within a 2.5 kilometers radius from the mountain’s peak dangerous and urged nearby residents to stay alert.

There are no residential areas within that zone.

However, the agency said that the residents living outside the zone do not need to evacuate yet.

“There might be other eruptions. We call on the residents to stay calm,” agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said in a statement sent to The Jakarta Post.

Sutopo added that officers from the agency had been deployed to the area to assist local authorities.

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.

Reventador continues to be mildly active with ongoing weak to moderate steam and ash emissions. The Instituto Geofísico reports a 2 km high column of steam and ash rising from Reventador volcano on 18 April. The ash cloud moved to the NW.  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.

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.
