"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

Report about the eruption of Ubinas- PERU June 3, 2014


In Peru, the Ubinas Volcano produced an ash plume which rose to 2500m above the crater at 8:52 in the morning (local time). Ubinas is Peru's most active volcano.

Ubinas volcano sends stones flying more than a kilometer

The continuing explosive activity at the Ubinas volcano in southern Peru has had locals worried for months, and now the volcano’s picked up a new trick— throwing rocks.

According to El Comercio, Ubinas has recently begun launching volcanic rocks between 10 and 20 centimeters in length. Reports indicate that some of these rocks have been displaced as far as almost two kilometers. The closest town, the village of Querapi, is four kilometers away.

Geologist Jersy Mariño told Andina news agency that “Just like [the lava] sometimes is pulverized and comes out as ash, which falls on nearby towns, that same lava also fragments into blocks that are 10 centimeters to two meters long, and they’re launched towards the sides of the volcano, and we call them ballistic projectiles.”

Mariño added that local residents should stay far away from Ubinas, as continued explosive activity is expected.

Alert level raised at Alaska volcano as eruption escalates

Alaska DispatchJune 2, 2014 

The Alaska Volcano Observatory on Monday said that an eruption at Pavlof Volcano had prompted a heightened alert level as the volcano spat out an ash cloud that reached 22,000 feet and stretched for about 50 miles to the east of the peak.

The activity prompted volcanologists to raise the alert level at the volcano to "warning" and the aviation color code to "red," indicating "eruption is underway or suspected with significant emission of volcanic ash into the atmosphere," according to the AVO.

Pavlof Volcano sits on the Alaska Peninsula, 36 miles northeast of the community of Cold Bay, which boasts one of the state's longest runways.

The alert level at Pavlof was initially raised Saturday when the volcano demonstrated elevated surface temperatures and a pilot in the area reported an ash and gas plume at around 7,000 feet elevation.

Update of today's powerful eruption at Sangeang Api Volcano, Sunda Islands, Indonesia.

Menacing 12-mile-high ash cloud looms over Indonesia's 'Mountain of Spirits' (May 30)

This is the incredible moment when a huge volcano erupted in Indonesia sending ash spewing an estimated 12 miles into the sky.

The powerful explosion took place at Mount Sangeang Api in the Lesser Sunda Islands and sent a distinctive spaceship-shaped ring of pyroclastic smoke high into the air.

After erupting, the volcano sent a distinctive spaceship-shaped ring of pyroclastic smoke high into the air. Pilots in the area reported seeing the cloud rising to 65,000 feet, spreading over a 25 mile area.

Seismic activity preceding the eruption, including a nearby magnitude 4.5 earthquake at 03:05 UTC, was reported felt in the nearby city of Bima (Sumbawa Island) and even on Flores.

Scores of farmers who work but do not live on the island were ordered to leave and not return until the volcano has finished erupting, said Muhammad Hendrasto, head of Indonesia's National Volcanology Agency.

Flights around Australia this weekend have been disrupted after the major volcanic eruption sent an ash cloud barreling into Aussie skies.

The ash and SO2 plume has drifted and spread over more than 3000 km to the E and SE, covering a vast area that includes parts of northern and eastern Australia. Darwin Airport is now closed.

Qantas and Virgin Australia have confirmed all their flights to and from Darwin have been cancelled.
“Because of the impact of the volcano we have cancelled all flights today on our schedule to and from Darwin,” Virgin Australia spokeswoman Jacqui Abbott said.

At this stage experts do not expect a major impact on the east coast, although they warn that could change as Mount Sangeang Api, a volcano off the northeast coast of the Indonesian island of Sumbawa, continues to discharge debris.

The manager of the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre at the Bureau of Meteorology in Darwin, Emile Jansons, said the cloud is dispersing as it spreads south.

Mr Jansons said it is clear from satellite images that the volcano is still erupting and the situation could still change at any time.

“It is continuing to disperse but it is moving very rapidly — at 70 to 80 knots (130 to 150km/h) — towards Alice Springs,” Mr Jansons said.

The Northern Territory News reports that while there is no official announcement yet, word on the ground at Darwin Airport is most flights will be cancelled until Monday.

Sangeang Api Volcano Erupts in Southern Indonesia, Forcing Evacuations (May 30)

Powerful burst of hot ashes erupted from a rumbling Mount Sangiang in West Nusatenggara province of Indonesia on Friday, forcing evacuation of growers from the areas at the slope of the volcano, official said.

Mount Sangiang of 1,842 km located in a small island of Bima district spewed ashes by up to 3,000 km to the sky at 15:55 p.m. local time, Muhammad Hendrasto, head of National Volcanology Agency, revealed. "Scores of farmers cultivating the land in the island, 7 km from the crater, have been told to leave the area since this morning. And they have been warned not to reenter the island during the eruption period,"he told Xinhua by phone.

Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, an official at the National Board for Disaster Management, said in a press release, “Sangeang Api island has no permanent settlements. However, residents from Sangeang’s mainland have gardens on the island and were evacuated from the gardens."

A joint search and rescue team conducted the evacuation by boat.

Indonesia’s Centre for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation raised the alert level after the eruption, most of the volcanic ash from which fell into the sea.

Evacuations Ordered Near El Salvador Volcano (May 19)

Approximately 1,000 people have been relocated from villages near a volcano in the country's far south that reportedly began expelling reddish ash on Monday.

Authorities in El Salvador have evacuated at least 1,000 people living in close proximity to the Chaparrastique volcano, where increased seismic activity has been reported this week.

Officials say that an explosion occurred near the volcano on Monday, which later began to belch reddish ash. There are now fears of a larger eruption.

The nation’s Civil Protection Department issued an alert on Monday for the municipality of San Miguel, where the volcano is located.

Chaparrastique’s last major eruption occurred in 1976, according to the Associated Press. The volcano is located 90 miles east of the country’s capital San Salvador.

Japan's Sakurajima Volcano Erupting Again (May 11)

The Sakurajima volcano started erupting on the southern Japanese island of Kyushu today. Sakurajima is considered to be one of the most active volcanos in Japan. The national meteorological service of the country reports that the column of ash is rising to the height of over 4,5km.

According to Japanese meteorologists, this eruption has become the most powerful this year. The flow of lava and ash is moving in the direction of Ibusiki City but currently there is no information about any wreckage or casualties.

Sakurajima erupts up to several hundred times a year. Today's eruption is No.126.

The volcanic activity usually harms the neighbouring Kagoshima Prefecture where the only Japanese space launch site Uchinoura is located.

Newly-discovered active volcano could erupt underneath ice in Antarctica and add  to effects of global warming, say scientists

A newly-discovered  active volcano could erupt underneath Antarctica, melting the ice from below and  compounding the effects of global warming, according to scientists.

Researchers  discovered the volcano underneath the ice after setting up devices to measure  tectonic activity across Marie Byrd Land in the west of the  continent.

Scientists had  intended to use the seismograph machines to help in their efforts to weight the  ice sheet - only to find that a volcano was in fact forming underneath the  ice.

Discovery: A newly-discovered active volcano could erupt underneath Antarctica,  melting the ice from below

Effect: Although an eruption would be unlikely to breach the ice - the  accompanying heat could have an effect on the landscape

Volcanic activity was discovered around 30 miles  from Antarctica's highest volcano, Mount Sidley, and although an eruption would  be unlikely to breach the ice - the accompanying heat could have an effect on  the landscape.

Even a sub-glacial  eruption would still be able to melt ice, creating huge amounts of water which  could flow beneath the ice and towards the sea - hastening the flow of the  overlying ice and potentially speed up the rate of ice sheet loss.

'Numerous  volcanoes exist in Marie Byrd Land, a highland region of West Antarctica,' said  Amanda Lough, of Washington University in St Louis in the team's paper on the  subject, published in the Nature Geoscience journal.

Findings: Volcanic activity was discovered around 30  miles from Antarctica's highest volcano, Mount Sidley

'High heat flow  through the crust in this region may influence the stability of the West  Antarctic Ice Sheet.'

The  Antarctic ice  sheet is one of the Earth's two polar ice caps and covers  an area of 5.4  million square miles - around 98 percent of the  continent, making it the  largest single mass of ice on earth.

Although  scientists have suggested that sea ice around the continent is increasing, land  ice appears to be decreasing and the area is very sensitive to global warming.

Seismologists had  set up two crossing lines of seismographs across Marie Byrd Land in 2010 - the  first time such instruments able to withstand the cold  temperatures year-round  had been used.
