"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

Severe Explosion in Volcano Tungurahua in Ecuador (Apr 14)

Ecuador's Tungurahua volcano spewed 5-km column of ash after a loud explosion due to an increase in its eruptive activity.

The blast occurred at 8:30 p.m. local time Monday (1330 GMT).

In addition, two millimeters of fine gravel in diameter was reported falling in the town of Pillate, about seven km west of the volcano, it added.

The explosion was considered among the strongest in the current eruption process and broke glass windows in the towns of Cusua, Chacauco, Cotaló and Pelileo.

Military and police personnel are preparing for an evacuation of the community.

Ecuador's Tungurahua volcano erupts - April 4

Eruption fears: The Tungurahua volcano spews a column of ash.

A volcano in central Ecuador has spewed up a column of hot ash and smoke 10 kilometres high.

The volcano entered a new vigorous eruptive phase yesterday evening. A moderately strong vulcanian explosion occurred at 18:10 (local time) and produced an eruption column rising several kilometers as well as small pyroclastic flows on the cone.

Ash / lapilli fall with 1-3 cm diameter clasts occurred in the areas of Bilbao, Choglontus, Chacauco and Cusúa.
The explosion, which likely cleared the conduit from a solid plug was followed by frequent, smaller explosions accompanied by a constant tremor signal of high energy.

When the volcano was not hidden in clouds, the expulsion of incandescent blocks that rolled down the upper flanks, and steam-gas-ash emissions could be observed. Individual stronger explosions also occurred intermittently, some of which rattled the windows and doors of the Tungurahua Volcano Observatory (OVT), located 14 Km northwest.

Activity has been building at the Tungurahua volcano 130 kilometres south of the capital Quito since early February.

On Friday (Saturday Australian time), experts reported a loud explosion that lasted for five minutes and an expulsion of ash.

Peru's Ubinas Volcano Erupts, Forces Evacuations (Mar 30)
A volcano in Peru that has not blown its top in four decades spewed more ash skyward on Tuesday, after authorities evacuated villagers to avoid Ubinas's wrath.

The volcano in southwestern Peru blasted back to life causing about 60 villagers from Querapi, near its base, to be relocated Saturday, Ubinas town mayor Pascual Coaquira said.

The director of the Geophysical Institute of Arequipa, Orlando Macedo said that the eruption took place at 7:42 a.m. and gave off ash for one thousand meters.

The volcano, in the south of Peru became active in September of last year, after having been dormant for several years. Nearby village, Querapi was set to be evacuated. The village is located just five kilometers from the volcano.

Macedo said that the villagers were affected by the ash that was emitted from the eruption.

“The wind has blown towards the south, to the residents of Querapi, four kilometers from the crater, and the district of Ubinas, located at six kilometers,” said Macedo.

The 20 families that lived in Querapi were evacuated to the locality of Ubinas last Saturday. They are waiting for the permanent removal of their village to Pampas de Hawái.

"We are readying a shelter for refugees from the blasts," he added Tuesday, noting that the whole Moquegua region was on alert.

"The volcano has been emitting a lot of ash all day, the people in the town (of Ubinas) are having some problems breathing, the mayor added. They have been given masks, he said.

Peru's geological and mining agency (Ingemmet) said lava had been building up in recent weeks, and warned locals they should prepare for the possibility of more evacuations.

In the broader Moquegua area plus Arequipa and Tacna, there are about 40 volcanoes, most dormant.

During the morning, a pilot from a commercial flight reported a steam plume rising out of the Atlantic Ocean about 150 miles off coast of southwest Ireland. A team from the Irish Coastguard was alerted and set out to sea from Dingle to conduct an investigation. When they got to the source of the plume, they observed surtseyan eruptions coming out from the sea. It was thought that what is now the Republic of Ireland had drifted away from the volcanically active zone of the mid-Atlantic Ridge millions of years ago, but this does not seem to be the case.

Etna (Sicily, Italy): During the night, the lava effusion and persistent mild explosive activity from the New SE crater ceased, after being nearly continuously active for over two months. If this is a true end or only a short pause to the latest eruptive phase which on 22 January remains to be seen. The tremor fell back to low levels in correspondence.

Karkar (Northeast of New Guinea): Several ash plumes at estimated altitude of 8,000 ft (2.4 km) were spotted during the past 2 days. This suggests a new eruptive phase could have started at the remote volcano.

Batu Tara (Sunda Islands, Indonesia): After a relatively long time with no spotted ash clouds, an ash plume was seen yesterday again on satellite imagery (VAAC Darwin).
The remote volcano in the Fores Sea has been site of continuing strombolian activity since at least 2006. Some of the eruptions are strong enough to leave ash plumes that can be seen on satellite images.

Merapi (Central Java, Indonesia): A possibly strong eruption was reported from the volcano this afternoon (13:55 GMT). Satellite data showed an ash and SO2 plume drifting SW at estimated 32,000 ft (9 km) (VAAC Darwin). The plume is quickly dissipating, suggesting that the eruption was an isolated (possibly phreatic) explosion. No other details are at the moment available.

Marapi (Western Sumatra, Indonesia): The volcano erupted again yesterday afternoon at 16:15 local time, the volcano observatory post reported. It appears it was one of the largest explosions during the volcano's current phase of activity. Although the eruption was itself not visible due to cloud cover, the seismic signal showed a strong explosion that lasted 38 seconds and relatively "thick" ash fall occurred shortly afterwards in Batipuh and Tanahdatar districts until 17:45.

Dukono (Halmahera): Activity at the volcano continues to be intense. An ash plume was reported extending 80 nautical miles to the west at 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude this morning (VAAC Darwin).

Ubinas (Peru): The volcano's new lava dome continues to grow slowly within the crater. New field observations published yesterday in a detailed report showed that the lava dome is now approx. 120 m in diameter and has completely filled the inner pit left by the explosive activity in 2006 (as of 19 March). Visible glow (even in daylight) indicates very high temperatures.
No explosions have occurred since the vent-clearing explosion on 14 Feb, but the volcano emits a significant plume of steam, SO2 gas and sometimes dilute ash. On 21 and 23 March, the steam-gas-ash plume rose 1800 m above the crater. On 25 March, light ash falls were reported in the towns of Querapi and Ubinas, as well as strong rumbling noises in distances up to 6 km SE. Seismicity remains above background with frequent earthquake swarms related to internal fluid movements.

Araucanía Region, Chile sismologo_ovdas@sernageomin.cl Special Volcanic Activity Report (REAV) BIO BIO REGION March 20 - HL Year 2014 11:00 Based on the analysis of the information obtained through the stations installed monitoring in the vicinity of Copahue volcano, the National Service Geology and Mining (SERNAGEOMIN) - Andean Volcano Observatory South (OVDAS), communicates the following: - Starting today, Tuesday, March 20 from 02:30 local time (0530 GMT) was there has been a gradual increase in the volcanic tremor (associated signal pressure perturbations in the fluid within volcanic conduits) characterized by an oscillating behavior in amplitude (with episodes up to three times the tremor signal line), with its phase durations intense than three (3) hours.

few hours, reaching discounted values ​​of displacement (DR) maximum up to 10 cm 2 , Value considered high. The depth of this signal is determined between 1.5 and 2.0 km below the volcano. This episode is marked by the occurrence a seismic swarm that began at 05:40 horal Local (8:40 GMT) with a total of 58 events, the largest with a local magnitude (M L ) Maximum 1.5, located 4.8 km to the northeast (NE) of the crater of the volcano, these events are frame average depths of 3-4 km. IP cameras around the volcano have been presented with little surface activity 100 meters lower elevations in these last hours, while concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO 2 ) Measures through the DOAS is They increased reaching maximum values ​​of 2300 ton / day

Given the characteristics of the volcanic system Copahue and according to described above, it is considered that the volcanic system has entered a state pressurizing excitation and greatly facilitates the occurrence of a eruptive process in the relatively near future, the time is not possible determine based on the current activity. Because of this, the alert is changed ORANGE technical level.

Thousands Facing Evacuation as Pacaya Volcano Erupts in Guatemala (Mar 1)
A volcano has erupted in Guatemala, prompting the authorities to consider the evacuation of some 3,000 people living in the area.

The Pacaya volcano began spewing ash and lava after a powerful explosion on Saturday afternoon.

New explosions were seen on Sunday, with ash clouds reaching a height or at least 4km (3 miles).

Flights have been diverted from the area, some 50km (30 miles) south of the capital, Guatemala City.

The Pacaya is one of three active volcanoes in the Central American nation. The other two are the Fuego and the Santa Maria.

"We are assessing with the National Disaster Management Centre (Conred) whether we will need to evacuate the 3,000 people who live in the villages of El Rodeo and Patrocinio," said the Pacaya National Park director, Humberto Morales.

"Access to the areas around the volcano has been suspended," he told the Prensa Libre newspaper.

Marapi Volcano Erupts in Indonesia (Feb 26)

Mount Marapi in Indonesia’s West Sumatra province erupted Wednesday, shooting ash to the sky and incurring a downpour of ash and volcanic sand up to 10 km to the south of the crater, an official said.

Powerful bursts of ash, sand and gravel erupted from the volcano located in Tanah Datar and Agam districts at 4.15 p.m. Jakarta time, Warseno, the official in-charge at the observatory post of the volcano, told Xinhua.

However, the height of the column could not be determined visually as visibility was impaired by haze enveloping West Sumatra due to forest fire in the neighbouring province of Riau, he added.

The authorities have closed the area within a three-km danger zone from the crater as the volcano is on third-highest alert level, he said.

So far, the authorities have not recommended any evacuation.

The volcano has had a total of 57 recorded eruptions since January 2014.
