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

Active volcanoes (Sep 28, 2012)


Currently active volcanoes (Aug 23, 2015)


"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

Strong Explosions at Japan's Sakurajima Volcano (May 29)

The volcano began a series of strong explosions this morning with ash plumes rising 20,000 ft high.

The eruptions were followed by long phases of continuous jets of ash. 

The above satellite image shows the eruption plume from Sakurajima as well as the larger plume from Mt Shindake's powerful eruption today drifting west.

Japan's Mount Shindake Erupts , Prompts Island Evacuation (May 29)

A volcano erupted on a Kuchinoerabu island in southern Japan on Friday, spewing black clouds of ash and rock towering into the sky and prompting authorities to evacuate the island.

The powerful vulcanian explosion occurred at 11:02 am local time. The eruption - a both vertical and partially lateral massive explosion, occurred with little warning and produced large pyroclastic flows by column collapse. A tall mushroom ash plume quickly rose to approx. 12 km altitude (36,000 ft).

JMA raised the alert level to the highest (5 out of 5) and authorities ordered immediate evacuation of the 130 inhabitants. Two people have been reported injured, presumably burnt by pyroclastic surge, and were flown to a hospital in Yakushima island. Preliminary reports say that no fatalities or significant damage occurred, although this seems unlikely, judging from the view of a massive pyroclastic flow that swept down to the coast near the port of the small island.

A ferry en route nearby was diverted to assist this operation and regualar ferries to the Tokara islands are being canceled as the vessels are used for the evacuation. Authorities even consider evacuation of nearby Yakushima island, known for its world-heritage forests and a popular tourist destination.

A military helicopter was also sent to survey the island and assess damage. Chief government spokesman Yoshihide Suga told reporters in Tokyo that the Coast Guard had dispatched a ship to help evacuate the residents.

Nicaragua's Telica Volcano Erupts (May 27)

A new phase of explosive activity occurred at the volcano with a large explosion that sent an ash plume 3 km above the summit.

The above webcam video show the dramatic explosion occurring at approximately 14:00 UTC.

Powerful Eruption at Wolf Volcano in Galapagos (May 25) 

A spectacular effusive-explosive eruption is occurring at Wolf volcano on Isabela Island in the Galapagos Islands off Ecuador.

Tall lava fountains produced an immense ash plume that rose to up to 45,000 ft (14 km) altitude.

At the same time, several lava flows are descending from the vents from a fissure on the volcano.

The last eruption of Wolf volcano, a 1710 m tall shield volcano, was in 1982.

Strong Explosions at Mexico's Colima Volcano (May 24)

The ongoing eruptive phase of the volcano continues to produce strong explosions with towering ash columns, as noted by today's web cam.

On 16 May an ash plume rose to an altitude of 5.5 km (18,000 ft) drifting 95 km ESE.

A new lava dome may be growing inside the summit crater, where a flat, elevated ash-covered area is visible on a recent aerial photo.

Powerful Explosions at Indonesia's Batu Tara Volcano (May 22)

The volcano had explosions that produced ash plumes that rose to 8,000 ft (2.4 km) altitude and drifted 80 km to the west today.

Strong Frequent Explosions at Guatemala's Fuego Volcano (May 22)

Activity at the volcano has increased during the past days.

Strombolian explosions have been small, moderate and large and occurring frequently.

Ash plumes rose to 1 km above the crater and incandescent jets 150 m above the crater.

Most explosions generated shock waves and locomotive-like degassing sounds.

Ash fall occurred in areas to the W and SW, in the villages of Morelia, Panimache, Sangre de Cristo.

Strong Eruptions, Continuous Explosions at Japan's Sakurajima Volcano (May 21)

Two strong explosions at Sakurajima produced ash plums that rose to 17,000 ft / 5 km altitude yesterday.

The activity was followed by continuous, noisy explosions and ash venting which lasted and slowly decreased during the night.

Today, two normal-sized explosions have taken place so far.

Volcanic activity update for May 20.

Sakurajima Volcano (Kyushu, Japan)

After a very busy 17 May, with several strong explosions sending ash plumes to up to 16,000 ft (4.5 km) altitude, the volcano has been relatively calm during 18 and most of 19 May.

A filming team of VolcanoDiscovery being on location, we could observe hour-long phases of near-continuous mild to moderate ash venting. After approx. 10 hours of almost no visible activity, a  strong explosion occurred yesterday night at around 11 pm, lasting several minutes, producing numerous lightning and heavy ash fall on the eastern sector.



Reventador Volcano (Ecuador)

The volcano's activity remains elevated. Mild to moderate explosions occur frequently from the summit vent, where viscous lava is being extruded and also produces an active lava flow, approx. 300 m long on the southwestern flank.

IGPEN reported dozens of explosions on most days, and up to more than 60 on a peak of activity on 8 May.


Turrialba Volcano (Costa Rica)

Several new mild to moderately strong ash eruptions have occurred at the volcano during the past days.

In particular, on 16 May, one of the most intense phases of ash emissions so far took place from the volcano's western summit crater between midnight and 15:40 local time. Ash plumes extended up to 50 km to the west and caused mild ash fall in places as Heredia and Alajuela towns.

A 5 km exclusion zone around the crater is in place.




Piton de la Fournaise Volcano (La Réunion)

The eruption continues with strong lava effusion.

As of 19 May evening, the lava flow had been at 3 km from the coastal road, having advanced 750 m during the past 24 hours.
