"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



I will try to update this post daily with new volcano news starting from August 2011.

Eruptions at Kamchatka's Klyuchevskoy Volcano Intensify (Jan 20)

The eruptions at Klyuchevskoy volcano have intensified over the past 24 hours.

A sustained ash plume, generated by near-continuous strombolian explosions or lava fountains, is rising 1.5-2 km from the volcano's summit, reaching approx. 24,000 ft (7.2 km) altitude, and drifting WSW.

Eurasia's highest volcano disgorged a red-hot blast to the elevation of 200 meters above its crater.

A stream of lava about 1,000 meters long was descending down the southeastern slope at the time of reporting and the eruptions continue.

A lava flow is also descending on the upper western flank.

Powerful Eruptions at Indonesia’s Mount Soputan (Jan 18)

Mt Soputan has erupted in northern Indonesia, releasing molten lava, hot ash, and thick smoke and leaving local residents in panic.

Mount Soputan in Indonesia’s North Sulawesi Province produced a 20,000 ft ash plume with strong pyroclastic flows.

The National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) said the volcano erupted at 11.38am (0338 GMT).

A viscous lava flow lobe is active on the western flank of the summit cone. Spectacular incandescent rockfalls accompany this effusive activity.

The eruption, similar to Sinabung's ongoing one, is entering a potentially very dangerous phase.

A safety radius of 6.5 km around the volcano's summit is in place.

The volcano has been showing signs of increased volcanic activity since January 14.

Sources say spewed ash was being blown to the south-west Mount Soputan, which erupted twice on January 6 and has been showing increased activity since then.

Iceland's Bardarbunga Lava Field Now Bigger Than Manhattan (Jan 17)

Lava originating from the Bardarbunga volcanic system now spreads for 30 miles over an area bigger than Manhattan.

The Holuhraun is the country's biggest basaltic lava flow since 1784, creating a lava field more than 32 square miles in size.

NASA captured an aerial view of the lava field last Jan. 3, showing newly formed basaltic rock and fresh lava. A lava lake was also visible on the lava field's western portion, with steam rising along the field's eastern borders where the lava flow meets the river Jökulsá á Fjöllum. Where much of the lava flow back in September was in surface lava rivers, activity has shifted to a closed channel on the eastern side in January.

Researchers from the Institute of Earth Sciences at the University of Iceland estimate the lava field to be 33 feet thick on the eastern end, 39 feet thick at the center and 46 feet thick at the western portion using surveillance flight data. With lava volume at 1.1 cubic kilometers, the Bardarbunga eruption was classified as a flood basalt.

Volcanologists have predicted the Bardarbunga's eruption will continue for years.

The public is banned from approaching the lava flow because of the high risk of a fissure erupting under the glacier. If this happens, a great flood will ensue, bringing a different kind of problem to Iceland.

New Volcanic Island Rapidly Growing From Tonga-Hunga Eruption (Jan 16)

A new island is now growing at the eruption site between Hunga Ha’apai and Hunga Tonga Islands. As of yesterday, it had an east-west elongated 1.5-2 km long and approx. 1 km wide shape with a half-open cone around the crater reaching almost 100 m in height already.

The new island seems already to have touched the northeastern tip of Hunga Ha’apai island. Violent sea-water and lava interaction has been generating jets of dark ash and dense steam plumes reaching several kilometers of height, as well as ground-hugging base surges.

During the past days, ash plumes have remained confined to lower altitudes and most flights in the area have resumed.

The info graphic by Matangi Tonga online puts the submarine vent significantly to the SE of the new island, which suggests the possibility that there might been two vents - one at the shown location in the map, one at or very near the new island where the first steam plumes appeared on satellite imagery from 30 Dec shortly after the start of the eruption.

A red algae bloom observed in nearby waters of Tonga might be indirectly be related to the eruption, because the emission of volcanic particles, fluids and gasses into the sea water is known to favor their growth.

Dramatic new photo reveals Tonga's flight-disrupting volcano

By Vaimoana Tapaleao, NZME. News Service

A new photo shows ash erupting from a volcano off Tonga in the South Pacific. Photo / Matangi Tonga A new photo shows ash erupting from a volcano off Tonga in the South Pacific. Photo / Matangi Tonga

AA dramatic new image has emerged of the volcanic eruption which spewed a huge plume of ash 9km into the sky, disrupting air travel to and from Tonga.

Hundreds of travellers and holidaymakers were left stranded after flights to and from Tonga were cancelled yesterday because of the volcanic ash cloud.

The new photo, released by the Tongan Navy, shows a huge cloud of black and grey ash erupting from the volcano.

Airports in Tonga have now reopened and flights are expected to be able to leave, but Air New Zealand hasn't been able to get a plane to the island kingdom.

Violent explosions at volcanoes around the Ring of Fire in Guatemala, Kamchatka and Tonga.

Intense Explosive Activity at Guatemala's Fuego Volcano (Jan 11)

Strong strombolian-type explosions have been occurring at rates of 6-8 per hour, sometimes ejecting incandescent bombs to more than 1000 m above the crater and producing glowing avalanches. Some of these reached the vegetation and caused small fires.

Ash plumes rose to 1-1.5 km above the crater and drifted 10-15 km to the west and southwest.

Increased Eruptive Activity at Kamchatka's Klyuchevskoy Volcano (Jan 11)

Strombolian explosions from the summit vent have picked up during the past 1-2 days.

A lava flow is now active on the southeastern flank and ash plumes have been reaching 28,000 ft (8.5 km) altitude. KVERT raised the volcano's alert level to orange.

Incandescent material from the explosive summit activity is ejected to several hundred meters above the crater. Relatively intense ash emissions have been causing ash fall in up to 30 km distance to the west of the volcano.

Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai Volcano Eruption Breaches Ocean Surface, Ash Plume Forces Airlines to Divert Flights (Jan 12)

The submarine eruption has apparently breached the surface. A steam and possibly ash plume was reported to have reached up to 30,000 ft (10 km) above sea level today and yesterday, New Zealand's VAAC Wellington reported, based on pilots' observations.

The Wellington Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre, part of the Metservice, this afternoon issued an advisory to aircraft saying the Hunga Ha'apai volcano is reportedly sending "dark volcanic cloud" 10 nautical miles (18 kilometres) around the small island.

Due to heavy cloud in the area no one has a clear picture of what is happening.

Unconfirmed reports say ash is falling on Ha'apai Island and some domestic flights in Tonga have been cancelled due to safety concerns.

Air New Zealand flights between Auckland and Samoa have been diverted around the area and Fiji Airways has cancelled a Nadi to Tonga flight.

Powerful Eruption at Kamchatka's Shiveluch Volcano (Jan 7)

A very large vulcanian explosion occurred this morning at the volcano (at 00:41 UTC, 7:41 am local time). The explosion produced a 1.5 km wide ash column rising to approx. 27,000 ft (9 km) altitude and several pyroclastic flows from partial column collapse that traveled to the south.

Strong Explosive Eruption at Indonesia's Soputan Volcano (Jan 6)

The volcano erupted this morning at 02:45 local time with a strong explosion from the summit lava dome, sending an ash column 26,000 ft (8.5 km) high.

The eruption followed an increase in seismic activity in December, when so-called "drumbeat" earthquakes appeared - a type of volcanic tremor typically associated with movements of viscous magma at shallow depths,- in this case new lava rising beneath the existing lava dome. As a consequence, the alert status of the volcano had been raised to the second highest level "Siaga" (3 on a scale of 1-4, alert).

Today's explosion caused parts of the summit dome that occupies the crater, open to the western flank, to collapse and produce a glowing avalanche that traveled approx. 2000 m, remaining within the volcano's caldera. It seems that no pyroclastic flow (which could sweep over the caldera walls and into inhabited areas below) occurred. No damage to people or infrastructure was reported.

Continued glow from the summit dome after the explosion suggests that magma has and continues to arrive now there.

Mexico's Popocatepetl Volcano Erupts Nearly 30 Times (Jan 1)

Popocatepetl volcano in Mexico had almost 30 eruptions in less than 24 hours heading into New Years Day.

People within 10 km have been asked by Mexican officials to evacuate their homes

The Centre for Disaster Prevention released a press release on Wednesday where they said that the volcano had erupted 28 times and released smoke more than 450 times. At least five strong tremors were also felt in the area.

During the eruptions, high-temperature debris were sent flying in a 3 km radius.

Along with the eruptions a three-and-a-half-kilometres-high column of ash, steam and gas spewed into the sky.

The wind carried the ash cloud to the nearby cities including Puebla.
