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

Mexico's Popocatépetl Volcano Erupts 4 Times  (Aug 16)

Popocatépetl volcano erupted 4 times in 24 hours, spewing ash and burning rocks into the air, with 73 volcanic plumes and tectonic earthquakes.

CENAPRED in March raised the environmental alert level to the second degree out of three, meaning nearby residents should be prepared to evacuate.

Powerful Explosion at Guatemala's Santa Maria (Santiaguito) Volcano (Aug 16)

A particularly strong explosion occurred this morning sending a massive mushroom-shaped ash plume that reached 20,000 ft. The  immediate surroundings were showered by volcanic blocks and bombs, and collapsing material from the eruption produced avalanches that engulfed the cone on several sides (pyroclastic flows).

The ash plume drifted to the WNW and caused significant ash falls in areas as far as the border with Mexico (e.g. Cacahotàn, 75 km distance). Light ash fall was even recorded in greater distances, e.g. the Mexican town of ​​Soconusco in 145 km distance.

The eruption came bare 48 hours after the previous one on Sunday. It can well be that the volcano is currently entering a phase of particularly increased activity.

Map of currently active volcanoes (Aug 14)

Shiveluch (Kamchatka): The activity of the volcano remains essentially unchanged. Part of the dome collapsed yesterday morning and generated a pyroclastic flow that traveled down the SW valley. The flow reached approx. 1500 m length and was 300-400 m wide. A second flow of similar size occurred immediately after. The resulting ash plume rose approx. 1 km.

Suwanose-jima (Ryukyu Islands): The volcano's activity has picked up again. Since yesterday, webcam images show constant red glow and intense degassing as well as intermittent ash emissions some of which have also been reported by Tokyo VAAC. Most likely, a new phase of intense strombolian activity is currently taking place at the active O-Take crater on the remote island.

Dukono (Halmahera): Continuous ash emissions have been observed during the past days. Satellite images show a plume extending into various directions (to the east today). In short, the intense activity of the volcano observed also during recent visits by various people seems to continue.

Yasur (Tanna Island, Vanuatu): Wellington VAAC reports ash plumes, mostly confined to Tanna Island, visible on satellite imagery today. This suggests that activity at the volcano is elevated at the moment. Volcanic explosions remain intense, volcanic bombs may fall in and/or around the crater and volcanic gas and ashes can also affect some villages.

Aoba (Vanuatu): Wellington VAAC received a pilot report of plumes of white steam and ash rising 1000 ft (300 m) above the active crater lake Voui this morning. The remote location of the volcano's large caldera and its extremely difficult make direct observations very rare. According to GeoHazard, "Aoba probably should be considered at present times as the most dangerous volcano of the archipelago, due to the presence of a large lava lake in the main crater." Strong explosive eruptions have been frequent in the past, generating dangerous mud flows that left thick lahar deposits in the central part of Ambae island and up to the coastlines.

Colima (Western Mexico): The volcano's activity seems to have picked up.. Several explosions occurred today, producing ash plumes that rose to up to 14-18,000 ft (4-6 km) altitude and dispersed into westerly directions. During intervals between eruptions, degassing is visible from several vents inside the summit crater where a  lava dome is likely continuing to grow.

Popocatépetl (Central Mexico): The volcano's activity has been essentially unchanged over the past week. On average, 2-4 explosions have been occurring daily - mostly small events with plumes less than 1 km tall - and about 50-100 pulses of steam emissions ("exhalations").  Glow at night visible from the crater indicates that magma continues to slowly rise and accumulate there.

Santiaguito (Guatemala): The series of strong vulcanian explosions continues. This morning, another one occurred that produced a mushroom-shaped eruption column that rose to approx. 18,000 ft (6 km) altitude. Partially collapsing parts of the eruption column generated moderately large pyroclastic flows on the eastern side and perhaps on the SW slope of the lava dome as well. Ash falls have occurred in nearby towns and villages such as San Felipe and Mazatenango Retalulehu.

Second eruption in last seven days.

Klyuchevskoy volcano in Russia's Far East sends ash seven kilometers high

PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, 10 August (BelTA - TASS) - Klyuchevskoy volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East has spewed ash up to seven kilometers into the sky, the Kamchatka Volcanic Response Team (KVERT) told Tass on Wednesday. "The volcano continues erupting. The ash plume has spread 264 kilometers east and southeast of the volcano," its source said. An ‘orange' aviation alert code has been assigned to the volcano, second after the highest - red code, warning about the hazard eruptions may pose to aircraft flying on local and international routes. No ash fall has been registered in settlements of the region, the Kamchatka department of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations reports.

Etna, fractures of tens of meters open the volcano [GALLERY] - SICILY- ITALY

August 3, 2016



Volcanologist INGV Catania (Osservatorio Etneo) Boris Behncke has published on its facebook page photos of a glowing fracture in the area between the two cones of the Southeast Crater of Etna. "It's not lava or magma - explains the expert - is the rock heated by the hot gas flow (around 700 ° C). To make I had to increase contrasts and colors red visible .

"it is a single fracture system along a few tens of meters."

Highest volcano in Eurasia spews ash 7.5 kilometres in the air


The 7,000 year old volcano is the highest mountain in Russia outside the Caucases.

Satellite images show the ash column spiralling to 7.5 km above sea level, said the Geological Service in Kamchatka.

'Ash is carried to the north-east. The concrete size of the ash plume is unknown since a large area near the volcano is covered in thick clouds,' said a statement.

So far there are no reports about volcanic ash eruptions in settlements of the Ust-Kamchatsky district, where the volcano is located.

The Klyuchevskoy, also called Klyuchevskaya Sopka, is located 360 km north-west of regional capital Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky in the extreme east of Russia.

The nearest town, Klyuchi, is home to about 5,000 people. The volcano rises 4,750 metres above sea level.

It is one of 29 active volcanoes on the Kamchatka peninsula.

Clouds of ash cover the skies over Indonesia: Flights are disrupted as THREE volcanoes erupt in just three days


Giant clouds of ash engulfed the skies as Mount Sinabung became the third volcano to erupt in Indonesia, in the space of just three days.

Mount Rinjani on Lombok island near Bali erupted on Monday, with the Sinabung volcano on Sumatra island and Mount Gamalama in the Moluccas chain of islands following suit late yesterday.
No one has been injured but flights at two airports have been disrupted.

The eruptions darkened skies in parts of the archipelago and disrupted some flights.
Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, the spokesman for Indonesia's Disaster Mitigation Agency, said that Gamalama and Sinabung erupted late yesterday, blasting debris high into the air.
'People are advised to stay calm,' said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, adding authorities were not yet planning evacuations.
Nugroho said farms and trees around the three volcanoes were covered in gray ash, but nearby towns and villages were not in danger.
Hot ash tumbled down the Sinabung slopes as far as 2,000 metres (6,562 feet) southward into a river.
The volcano has been put on alert its highest level since June 2015 following a significant increase in activity.

Powerful Eruption at Japan's Sakurajima Volcano (Jul 26)

Mount Sakurajima erupted with a massive column of ash rising over 3 miles high early Tuesday.

The eruption occurred at 12:02 a.m. at the mountain's Showa crater.

This is the first time that the active volcano in southern Kyushu has spewed out a smokestack that high since an eruption on Aug. 18, 2013, according to the Kagoshima Meteorological Office.

It marked the 47th eruption this year, and the observatory is warning residents and travelers in the area that traffic accidents may occur because of the falling ash.

The Japan Meteorological Agency continues to keep Sakurajima on an alert level of “3,” which closes off the entire mountain except for residential areas along the coast. It has been at that level since February.

Turrialba Volcano Made Tow New Eruptions Monday Morning; Two Sunday Night

"Romeros" are being recommended to wear facemasks given the increase in volcanic activity at the Turrialba


The Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) informed through his Facebook page, that at 7:22am the volcano had an eruption that reached a height of 3,000 metres above the summit. A second eruption was recorded at 8:26am, this time reaching only a height of 1,500 metres.

Sunday night two eruptions were recorded, the first at 9:23pm and the second at 10:17pm, reported the OVSICORI, with ashfall reported in area of Barva de Heredia and Poas in the Central Valley and also in Cartago.

In the Sunday night eruption, the winds scattered thea ashes in the direction of the Orosi Valley, Gerardo de Dota and Quepos, all southwest of the volcano.

The Monday morning eruptions are believed to be tied to an increase in volcanic tremors recorded starting at 11:00pm Sunday night.

Given the increased activity of the volcano, OVSICORI volcanologist Javier Pacheco, recommends “romeros” – the faithful making their pilgrimage to Cartago in this year’s celebration of Virgen de los Ángeles (Our Lady of the Angels) on August 2, wear facemasks – especially those suffering from respiratory ailments.

Volcanoes Erupt in Indonesia, Guatemala (Jul 1)

Sumatra's Sinabung volcano exploded twice on July 1, throwing a column of ash and gas to a height of 2500 meters above the crater. The volcano and its surroundings have been placed under the highest level of alert: IV.

The first eruption occured at around 1:00 pm local time. A second and more powerful eruption happened 4 hours later at 5:22 pm.

Mount Sinabung, which has been active since September 2013, has started to spew lava and ash clouds that have spread as far as 1,200 kilometers away from the crater, Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) deputy chairman Yunus Swarinoto said on Friday.

“People who live within a 4 to 6 kilometer radius of the mountain have to be evacuated to safe places,” Yunus said in a press statement.

The BMKG also warned people living near rivers to remain alert as the lava might also flow along rivers and spill out in downstream areas.

Guatemala's Santa Maria volcano also exploded strongly on July 1 for the second time in two days.

Ash and gas were ejected more than 5000 meters above the crater and may have caused ballistic expulsions up to 1 meter in diameter up to 3 kilometers from the dome.
