Japan: A new island appears in the Ogasawara Islands - November 2013

Active volcanoes (Sep 28, 2012)



"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

CARIBBEAN: Warnings issued as volcano near Grenada becomes restless

Volcano Kick ’em Jenny

April 30, 2017


CMC – The National Disaster Management Agency is monitoring an increase in activities taking place at Kick ’em Jenny, the region’s only submarine volcano located between Grenada and the Grenadine island of Carriacou.
In a release early Sunday, the disaster agency said it has been advised of the increase in activity by the Seismic Research Centre (SRC) of the University of the West Indies (UWI).
“The UWI/SRC recorded a high amplitude signal, lasting about 25 seconds, on one of the Grenada stations. The signal was also recorded on a station in Montserrat. This signal follows an increase in the number of background events associated with the Kick-’em-Jenny volcano,” said the release which confirmed that persons in the St Patrick’s area have reported feeling tremors.”
As a result, the alert level is now on yellow and sea users and ships have been warned to stay away from vicinity of the submarine volcano.

“In light of the ongoing we are advising all sea users that the 5km (3.1 miles) exclusion zone of Kick ’em Jenny be strictly observed. The SRC has advised that heightened alert is necessary for the exclusion zone,” the release added.
A yellow alert means the volcano is restless; seismicity and/or fumarolic activity are above the historical level or other unusual activity has been observed or can be expected without warning.

Yesterday, mountaineers climbed Mount Walzmann outside Schonau-am-Konigsee and noticed an odour of sulphur. When they got to the summit they had discovered that a lava dome had been growing in the summit area. Police has closed access to the mountain pending further investigation from scientists. Mount Walzmann, previously thought to be a mountain is located in Germany's deep south in the Bavaria region.

Japan's Mt Sakurajima Erupts 5 Times Covering Nearby Cities with Ash (May 2)

Mount Sakurajima blew its top again at 3:20 a.m. on May 2 in spectacular fashion, spewing a massive column of smoke rising 4,000 meters from the crater.

Locals have spoken of having difficulty breathing after bright flashes and billowing smoke blasted from the volcano in at least five separate eruptions.

Residents in the town of Kagoshima, found on the southern island of Kyushu and around 4km away from the volcano, awoke to find their homes littered with ash.

One person living nearby posted a picture of his car covered in ash, with the caption: “Everything in my town is being covered with volcanic ash from Sakurajima. I can't breathe!!”

It is thought there are no injuries or casualties resulting from the violent eruptions but authorities have recommended that people in Kagoshima wear face masks until the ash stops falling on the region.

Japan volcano erupts, shoots ash 3 kms high (Apr 28)


TOKYO — Mt. Sakurajima, a volcano in Kagoshima Prefecture in southwestern Japan, erupted on Friday, the weather agency said.

According to Japan’s Meteorological Agency, the eruption occurred at 11:01 a.m. local time.

Ash and smoke was recorded as billowing as high as 3 kilometers into the sky, the weather agency said.

The agency warned that similar eruptions could occur, although there have been no immediate reports of injury or damage as a result of the latest eruption.

The last major eruption occurred at the mountain on July 26 last year and the volcano is under Level 3 (orange alert) by the Japan Meteorological Agency, signifying the volcano is active and should not be approached.

In September 2016, a team of experts from Bristol University and the Sakurajima Volcano Research Center in Japan concluded after studies that the volcano could have a major eruption within 30 years. Xinhua

Continuous Activity at Costa Rica's Poás Volcano Culminates with Powerful Explosion (Apr 22)

Video 1

Video 2

48 hours of continuous eruptive activity at Poás Volcano were marked on Saturday at 10:12 p.m. with a massive explosion that launched glowing bombs over the entire sector of the active crater.

In what appear to be the strongest eruption in the current ongoing crisis thus far, the presence of large amounts of incandescent material suggests that magma continues to rise towards the surface.

People in nearby towns such as Alajuela reported strong sulfur smells and ash falls that caused headaches, burning eyes, and respiration irritation.

Earlier on the same day, at 4:03 p.m. local time, another explosion occurred at Poás, but the height of the eruption column was not observed due to bad visibility.

The peak of activity began on April 20 at 10 p.m. with an increase in the evaporation and emission of gases in the area where the volcanic dome used to be.

The emission of solid material and the eruptions increased on April 21 and during the night hours the volcano expelled ash aside from the vapors as well as rocks at high temperature. 

The incandescent material has temperatures of more than 800 degrees Celsius (1472 Fahrenheit), when they fall again they form a cone that has been changing its shape. The volcano also emits a loud sound similar to that of a plane turbine.

Experts estimate that the temperature of the Laguna Caliente lake could be near the 80 degrees Celsius at this point.

Residents of San José, Alajuela, Heredia and Cartago are breathing high levels of sulfur, carbon dioxide and occasionally ash particles, that can have a negative effect on health.

The air quality monitoring station located in Hatillo, registered in average a concentration of carbon dioxide of 81 parts per billion (ppb), with a maximum peak of 99.1 ppb, which exceeds the WHO limits of 75 ppb.

According to Jorge Herrera, coordinator of the environmental laboratory of the National University, the emissions of gas by the Poás Volcano is affecting the quality of the air in the metropolitan area which was already compromised with the eruptions of the Turrialba Volcano.

The high levels of sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide measured near the crater of the volcano are interpreted by scientists as a sign of fresh magma near the surface.

The combination of these gases in the air and heavy rains like the ones experienced in the last few days create what is known as acid rain, which causes damage in crops, vegetation, and even metallic structures.

Costa Rica's Poás Volcano Erupting (Apr 14)

Just two days after suddenly erupting with enough force to leave a crack in the dome of its crater, Costa Rica's Poás volcano on Friday spewed a plume of smoke and ash more than three kilometers into the air.

The strong explosion was preceded by several smaller and moderately sized explosions from around 6 am; the most significant one occurred at 6:59, 7:18, 7:39 and 7:57 local time.

The plume, visible from different points in the country, went higher than three kilometers.

Poás is located just 40 kilometers north of the capital San Jose, in Alajuela province.

The country's Turrialba Volcano, located in the east, is usually the one making headlines for sending plumes of ash and smoke as high as 4,000 meters into the sky.

Volcano Sinabung in western Indonesia has begun to erupt on April 12, creating a 3,000-metre pillar of dust and smoke.

The volcano, nearly 2,500 metres tall, has erupted in recent days, according to local disaster prevention agency.

Local authorities have banned people from travelling to area of seven kilometres from the crater’s radius.

Sinabung is one of 130 active volcanoes in Indonesia, which has continuously erupted since 2013.

At least 23 people were killed by the volcano’s eruption in 2014 and 2015. The following eruptions forced thousands of people to evacuate, causing huge losses to the local economy.-VNA


"..Villagers also continue their precarious existences despite the eruptions, putting on masks to go shopping as ash falls from the sky, and tending to their crops.

Over 2,000 families have been evacuated from around the rumbling volcano in recent years, and many will soon be relocated to new villages after lengthy stays in temporary shelters.

Sinabung roared back to life in 2010 for the first time in 400 years. After another period of inactivity it began erupting again three years later..."

Strong earthquake swarm 80 km north of Kolbeinsey Island - ICELAND
March 26, 2017


Largest earthquakes in this swarm had the following magnitudes. Magnitude 4,6 (EMSC Information here), magnitude 5,0 (EMSC information here), magnitude 4,8 (EMSC information here).


During the night of 26-March-2017 there was an strong earthquake swarm about 80 km north of Kolbeinsey Island. This is around 250 km from the coast in north Iceland. It is not clear what is happening in this location, since this area has been seeing higher than usual earthquake activity in recent months. This is the largest earthquake swarm so far to take place.

Volcanic unrest: Cleveland volcano (USA) explodes and underwater volcano about 400 km south of Tokyo, Japan could erupt soon

Meanwhile, the volcanic unrest continues…

Cleveland volcano (USA) exploded on March 25, 2017 and an underwater volcano about 400 km south of Tokyo, Japan could erupt soon.

After Bogoslof, now the Cleveland Volcano exploded in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands

After Bogoslof since mid-December 2016, another volcano in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands is showing signs of unrest. On Friday, the Alaska Volcano Observatory detected a small explosion at Cleveland Volcano.

Geologists say any ash cloud generated probably dissipated and was not above 20,000 feet, where it could threaten airliners traveling between Asia and North America.

Alert to ships in Japan as an underwater volcano about 400 km south of Tokyo could erupt soon

The Meteorological Agency on Friday warned that an underwater volcano about 400 km south of Tokyo could erupt soon. An alert to ships has been issued by the Coast Guard.

But an eruption is unlikely to seriously affect any of the inhabited islands, including Aogashima. If the eruption occurs around the Beyonesu Rocks, it will be the first since 1970, where a change of color in the ocean was last observed in 1988. In 1952, an eruption in the area killed 31 crew members of a coast guard ship.

Kamchatka's Kambalny Volcano Reawakens After 500-Year Slumber (Mar 25)

The Kambalny volcano on the Kamchatka peninsula is spewing ash in its first historic eruption in over 500 years.

The last confirmed eruption of the volcano took place more than 500 years ago, around 1350 AD dated by radiometric studies. An alleged eruption around 200 years ago cited in the press is likely a false information or from another volcano.

The ash has risen to a height of 7,000 meters above sea level and traveled a distance of 800 km in a south-westerly direction.

Kambalny volcano (Kambalnaya Sopka) is located in the South Kamchatka volcanic zone in the south of the Kambalny volcanic ridge, southwest of the Kurilsky lake, in the sources of the Kambalnaya River. 

The nearest settlement is Ozernovsky in Ust-Bolsheretsky district, some 77 km from Kambalny.

The eruption of the Kambalny volcano in southern Kamchatka on Saturday has surprised scientists of the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) of the Russian Academy of Scientists.

"KVERT’s specialists since 1993 have been monitoring both by satellite and visual methods the volcanic activities and nothing pointed to a possible eruption of the Kambalny," KVERT’s head Olga Girina told TASS on March 25.

"It is a pure surprise for us." "We continue the monitoring and will analyze possible threats as data come in," she added.
