"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

(Reuters) - Volcano Villarrica in southern Chile, which erupted earlier this month before settling down, has entered a more active phase again, expelling gas and ash into the atmosphere, Chilean authorities said on Wednesday.

Villarrica, located near the popular tourist resort of Pucon around 750 km (460 miles) south of the capital Santiago, is among the most active in South America.

On March 3 a short-lived eruption of ash and rock led to the evacuation of thousands from the nearby area.

Costa Rica's Turrialba Volcano Has Most Powerful Eruption in  Over a Century (Mar 12)

Costa Rica's Turrialba volcano belched a column of gas and ash up to 3,280 feet (1 km) into the air on Thursday in its most powerful eruption in over a century, and local authorities started to evacuate residents from the surrounding area.

Four explosions emanated from the volcano in central Costa Rica on Thursday, and ash reached parts of the capital San Jose some 30 miles (50 km) away, where the airport was closed. Before today, an expulsion of ash and magma from the volcano in October was its most significant activity in over a century.

"We have recommended the evacuation of people and small animals as a precaution. The last explosion was very strong," a spokesman for the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (Obsivori) said.

Costa Rica's emergency services ordered the closure of access roads near the volcano, which is major tourist draw, and were evacuating a radius of just over a mile around the volcano.

Two of the explosions rocked Turrialba Volcano within 3 hours of each other.

The first explosion occurred at 10:50 a.m. The fumarole spewed materials for about 24 minutes and reached some 500 meters (1,640 feet) above the crater’s summit, located some 67 kilometers northeast of the capital San José.

A second more powerful explosion at 1:48 p.m. created an ash column that reached some 1,000 meters (3,280 feet).

A series of volcanic tremors in the surroundings of Turrialba canton followed the explosion, said Raúl Mora, a volcanologist with the National University’s National Seismological Network, who was at Turrialba at the time.

Mora said the explosion had a greater magnitude than those recorded last weekend.

Ashes were visible on roofs, windows and cars as far as the provinces of San José and Heredia.

Second volcano rumbles to life in Guatemala

Two of Guatemala’s three active volcanoes have now rumbled to life, officials said Wednesday, one day after the Santiaguito volcano began belching smoke and showering nearby towns with ash.

Guatemala’s Fuego volcano, in the southwest, over the past several weeks has spewed adjacent towns with soot, forcing the temporary closure last month of a neighboring airport.

Now the Santiaguito volcano in the west has awakened as well, emitting columns of ash 400 meters (1,300 feet) tall above its crater.

Santiaguito, whose peak soars to 2,500 meters above sea level, is located in western Quetzaltenango province.

The sleeping giant began to stir on Tuesday, but officials said that thus far, they have not had to evacuate populated areas nearby.

The 3,700-meter tall Fuego — whose name means fire in English — last month spewed out large columns of ash, prompting an orange alert and forcing nearby residents to wear protective masks.

In 2012, several thousand people were evacuated from Fuego’s slopes after an eruption.

Officials said they are keeping an eye on Guatemala’s third active volcano, Pacaya, in the south. So far, there is no indication that it has been roused from its slumber.

Nicaraguans Wary as San Cristobal Volcano Rumbles (Mar 6)

Communities living near Nicaragua's San Cristobal volcano were on edge Friday, after two volcanic explosions shook the region.

San Cristobal spewed ash and smoke twice on Thursday afternoon, according to La Prensa newspaper.

The first explosion sent volcanic material shooting as high as 200 meters, while the second one produced a column of smoke and ash 500 meters high.

The newspaper said the ash affected at least three nearby communities – all located in the state of Chinandega.

Local authorities say they are closely monitoring the volcano for signs of a full scale eruption. For now, though, the government is urging locals to remain calm.

Along with being Nicaragua's highest volcano, San Cristobal is also widely viewed as the country's most active. The volcano has repeatedly erupted in recent years, but usually doesn't threaten locals.

In 2012 and 2013, thousands of nearby residents were forced to evacuate twice, amid fears of a major volcanic event.

Powerful Eruption at Indonesia's Mount Soputan (Mar 7)

A new explosive eruptive phase occurred this morning, producing an ash plume that rose 4.5 km from the volcano's summit and pyroclastic flows that traveled 2.5 km.

Mount Soputan in Southeast Minahasa District, North Sulawesi erupted at 05:09 pm Central Indonesian Time (GMT+8).

Head of Data and Information Center of the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said here, Saturday, on a broadcast statement that according to a report of the Volcanology and Geology Disaster Mitigation Center (PVMBG), Mount Soputan spewed pyroclastic flow to the east side of the volcano reaching 2,500 meters from its peak.

Volcanic ash was falling to several sub-districts in Southeast Minahasa District such as Silian Raya, Touluaan, Tombatu, Pasan and Rataha.

The volcano is still in alert level III status.

"There are no people evacuated as the nearest residential area is located eight kilometers from the mounts peak," Nugroho said.

In June 2008, Mount Soputan erupted and spewed pyroclastic flow reaching a radius of 6.5km from the peak.

The authority, therefore, stated that people activities are banned in the area within 6.5km radius from the Mount Soputan peak.

Powerful Eruptions Continue at Russia's Shiveluch Volcano (Mar 4)

The volcano is in an intense phase of activity, characterized by strong explosions and partial collapses of the growing lava dome accompanied by tall ash plumes and pyroclastic flows.

An explosion on March 4 produced an ash plume that rose to flight level 370, i.e. 37,000 ft (11 km) altitude, Tokyo VAAC reported.

Aviation color code is red. Aircraft on the N-America - Japan routes are advised to avoid the area.

On 28 Feb, a series of explosions and collapses produced tall plumes >10 km altitude and large pyroclastic flows up to approx. 4 km distance.

More on the powerful volcanic eruption in Chile today.

Chile's Villarica Volcano Sends Lava 3,000ft High (Mar 3)

Chile's Villarica volcano has erupted, sending lava 3,000ft into the air and cascading down the hillsides, and forcing the evacuation of over 3,000 people

The Villarica volcano in Chile has erupted after weeks of rumbling, shooting a column of lava 3,000ft into the sky in the early hours of Tuesday.

The 3am eruption forced more than 3,000 people from their homes and sent streams of lava down the mountain. One of the world's most active volcanoes, the 9,000-foot mountain is located in Chile's central valley about 400 miles south of the capital, Santiago.

Rodrigo Peñailillo, the Chilean interior minister, said: "We are continuing to evacuate people who are affected by the red alert zones.

"The National Geology and Mines Service (ONEMI) is evaluating possible flooding, which could be caused by melting on the volcanic cone."

The symmetrical volcano is situated on the shores of Lake Villarica, by the town of the same name. The region is a tourist hotspot, attracting thousands of people annually to climb the nearby hills and hike in the surrounding forests.

According to ONEMI, 2,100 people have been evacuated from the town of Pucon - one of the most popular tourist towns in Chile, and a centre for outdoor sports.

In the Villarica district, 20 people have been evacuated, while a further thousand people have left the "comuna" - district - of Panguipulli.
