"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.

Indonesia's Gamalana Volcano Erupts Unexpectedly with Fatalities (Dec 19)

Gamlana Volcano on Ternate Island, a popular hiking destination, erupted unexpectedly Thursday evening claiming at least two lives.

Two hikers were reported missing, presumably killed, and nine others wounded, mainly from injuries suffered when falling during their escape.

Slow-moving red lava was visible at the peak of the eruption Friday and villages were blanketed with thick ash, but no evacuation orders have been issued.

An airport in Ternate, the provincial capital about30 kilometres (20 miles) from the volcano, was forced to close Friday as did schools and offices.

Explosions and ongoing ash emissions continued throughout Friday and produced ash plumes that drifted eastwards. More than 5 cm of ash covered the runway and some parked aircraft.

The Indonesian Volcanological Survey (VSI) raised the alert level of Gamalana to 3 (on a scale of 1-4).

The small island, only approx. 10 km in diameter, consists essentially of the volcano's cone above sea level and is very exposed to mud flows or pyroclastic flows that could occur during or as a result of explosive activity.

Evacuations would likely need to involve dislocation to one of the neighboring islands in case of a major eruption.

It seem that the eruption was not preceded by anything unusual, only a weak tremor signal was recorded about half an hour before, which in itself is not very unusual on any active volcano and not enough to predict an eruption.

It is not clear what the nature of this eruption is and whether it involves fresh magma or only steam-driven explosions (phreatic activity), but the observed glow on the upper flank below the summit suggest that a lava flow was active from a vent below the summit crater.

Costa Rica Turrialba Volcano Erupts, Rains Ash over San José (Dec 9)

Turrialba Volcano erupted again Monday evening, launching twice the ash of the two October eruptions, blanketing residents in Central Valley as far as 20 km away with ash and a strong smell of sulfur.

A large magnitude 6.8 temblor shook the country’s southwestern region Monday, in addition to three other 6+ magnitude quakes that hit the region in previous days.

Fogo Volcano Consumes Another Village (Dec 8)

A second village in the path of the rapidly advancing lava flow has been destroyed within only a few hours.

With 2 villages destroyed, more than 1700 people displaced and without some of their most valuable economic possession, farmland, this now 15 days old eruption is the worst volcanic disaster of this century.

The history of 150 years of settlement in the Cha caldera is now under lava.

Eruption Intensifies at Fogo Volcano off E. Africa (Nov 6)

The eruption at Fogo has destroyed most of what remained of Portela. The new lava flow advanced at a rate of 30 meters per hour on Saturday.

The flow is now headed towards Bangaeira village, which is threatened to suffer the same fate as Portela in a short time. Authorities ordered full evacuation of the area.

One of the main access roads, only reopened a few days ago, was also destroyed by the lava flows, making the evacuation of people and remaining goods difficult.

Explosive Eruptions at Guatemala's Fuego Volcano (Dec 3)

Nearly continuous eruptive activity at Fuego Volcano since Nov 29 with up to 6-8 explosions per hour.

Some covered the entire upper cone with incandescent bombs with shock waves felt up to 30 km away.

Ash plumes have risen to 5 km altitude amid turbulent wind conditions shown in the below time-lapse video.

Interesting overflight video showing the immensity of the ongoing eruption at Iceland's Bardarbunga volcanic complex. Recorded in late November.

The eruption continues with little changes as of December 3. While most of the lava now remains on top of the already emplaced lava field, more than 75 square km large, several lateral outbreaks are active as well.
The most active one, to the north, has advanced more than 450 m in a single day.

Seismic activity remains high under the volcano.

Lava from Fogo Volcano Threatens to Engulf Nearby Villages (Nov 28)

Molten lava from Fogo volcano slid towards the town of Cha das Caldeiras on Thursday, threatening to destroy it and other nearby villages just four days after an initial eruption.

Television images showed a huge lake of steaming black lava just meters away from houses in the village of Portela. The village is close to Cha das Caldeiras, whose 1,200-strong population has been evacuated to emergency shelters.

"In the last few hours, there was an increase in volcanic activity and the lava is flowing towards Portela and this community may be completely engulfed by lava," Prime Minister Jose Maria Neves said on Thursday during a visit to Fogo.

"The potential is for the total destruction of Cha das Caldeiras, one of the most fertile regions of Cape Verde," he added, calling on international aid for the country.

The lava flows have covered approx. 400 hectars of land, including 26 hc of farmland.

A dozen of houses from the village of Portela have already been consumed; the larger part of the village, including most of its economic infrastructure (hotels, wine cellars, farm land) remain at elevated risk to follow the same fate in the next days if activity and the advance of the lava flow, now a few meters per hour, continue at similar intensity.

Most inhabitants from Portela have been evacuated, only less than 100 more still need to be.

According to news, a 3rd evacuation route has been opened to facilitate transport of people and goods.

Mount Aso volcano in Japan causes travel chaos in first eruption in 22 years


The previous eruption of Mount Aso was in 1991

Plumes of volcanic ash caused flight cancellations and disruptions yesterday in the first eruption of a Japanese volcano in more than 22 years.

Mount Aso - situated on Kyushu island 625 miles (1,005km) south from the capital Tokyo - spewed out lava, debris and smoke while expelling columns of ash 3,280 feet (1km) into the sky, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

Update on the Fogo Volcano eruption off W. Africa.

Lava Flows from Fogo Volcano Threaten Portela (Nov 25)

The northern lava flow branch has started to enter the village of Portela and today destroyed and/or damaged several buildings, including the headquarters of the Fogo Nature Park.

The village, located at the northern end of the main road inside the caldera, is at risk of being cut of by lava flows: If the main road becomes covered, only a difficult and long passage to the NE via Monte Velha remains as land evacuation route.

Local news sources and recent video footage suggest an increase in activity. Several vents have opened at the fissure on the southwestern foot of the Pico del Fogo cone. Activity at most of the vents is violently explosive with significant gas and ash emissions

For this reason, Cabo Verde Airlines has canceled all flights departing and arriving in Sao Felipe Airport on the west coast.

The SO2 gas plume from the eruption has spread to the north and already reached the northern Cape Verde islands. Authorities recommend people to drink plenty of water.

Since the beginning of the eruption, inhabitants of the Cha caldera have been using trucks and various other available vehicles to evacuate goods from the threatened area. Local media report fuel shortages which makes the situation more difficult.

Looting and equipment theft, in particular from the headquarter building of the Nature Park, which only had been opened in March this year, add to the problems.

The eruption's heaviest economic damage is probably the destruction of vinyards in the area. The lava flows threaten the storage cellar with approx. 100,000 liters of wine.

To manage the volcanic crisis, a crisis cabinet was set in place by the government.

Update on the Fogo Volcano eruption off West Africa...

A rare eruption of Cape Verde volcano Pico do Fogo, its biggest in decades, caused the closure of the airport and evacuation of local residents.

A photograph posted on the local RTC TV station website showed a huge plume of smoke rising into the sky, visible from the capital Praia on a neighbouring island.

"Things could deteriorate in the coming moments, in the coming hours," prime minister Jose Maria Neves said in a statement.

"We've called on people to heed the authorities' instructions, people should abandon Cha das Caldeiras."

The main road which provides access to Chã das Caldeiras is cut because the lava coming out of the volcano was already destroyed three poles of CVTelecom.

The Cova Tina location is under heavy "rain" of fine sand.

The smell of sulfur from the eruption have also reached the city of S. Filipe.

The eruption has increased in intensity, having opened another crater in the volcano, totaling three craters.

However, even with strong smell of sulfur and dust spread through the air, some people have refused to leave their homes.

The volcano last erupted in 1995, causing minor damage.
