"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

The Calbuco Volcano erupted for the third time - CHILE

The Calbuco Volcano erupted for the third time and estimate that the ash could reach El Bolson - ARGENTINA



reported by the National Service of Geology and Mining of Chile

Chile: The National Geology and Mining (Sernageomin), run by the National Network of Chile Volcanic Surveillance, reported today that the third Calbuco volcano began eruptive pulse so the red alert is maintained at 20 kilometers around the massif. They are working to evacuate nearby villages.

For now, they consider that the ash could reach the area of ​​El Bolson, to extend toward the Atlantic coast in Peninsula Valdes as published by news portal Patagonian weather.

At 13:10, Sernageomin reported that the volcano had started his third eruptive pulse stage that had been predicted.

VAAC Buenos Aires estimated the height of the plume at 16,000 ft (5 km) altitude.

Ash Fallout from Chile's Calbuco Volcano Threatens Local Water Supply (Apr 27)

A state of emergency has remained in effect for miles around Chile’s Calbuco volcano, as officials pledged to help thousands of residents faced with thick ash, the threat of contaminated drinking water and the possibility of lava flow tied to last week’s eruptions.

Chilean television showed some residents wearing masks as they tried to clean volcanic ash from the roofs of their houses and from the streets. Many of the 6,000 people who were evacuated from towns surrounding the volcano in southern Chile had not been allowed to return to their homes as of midday Monday.

Authorities also warned of possible contamination of drinking water supplies and farm crops due to the toxic content of the volcanic ash. The volcano had been inactive since the early 1970s before erupting Wednesday and Thursday.

Officials said a state of emergency remained for a 13-mile radius surrounding the 6,200-foot Calbuco volcano, about 650 miles south of the capital, Santiago, in the Los Lagos region. Rain could trigger mudslides and overflow rivers.

Chile’s National Geologic and Mining Service estimated that the volcano had so far emitted 210 millon cubic meters of ash, which covered areas in the immediate Chilean area of Los Lagos but also fell on the Argentine side of the border.

Lava from Sumatra's Sinabung Volcano Destroys Village (Apr 28)

Mt. Sinabung erupted again on Tuesday night with a series of strong pyroclastic flows, forcing hundreds of residents to flee from Gurukinayan subdistrict, Payung district, Karo regency, North Sumatra.

The largest lava flow reached 5 km away and destroyed the evacuated village of Guru Kinayan on the southern slope of the volcano.

The flows, at least 9 in total, resulted from the partial collapse of the recently emplaced lava lobe on the steep upper flank.

More on the Calbuco eruption in southern Chile.

Volcano Calbuco in southern Chile erupted with little warning for the first time in more than four decades on April 22, sending a thick plume of ash and smoke 30,000 feet into the sky.

As night fell, about 4,000 people had so far moved out of the area, an evacuation radius of 20 kilometers had been established and classes were canceled in surrounding towns, authorities said.

Winds blowing northeast were pushing the column of ash and smoke toward Argentina.

"In this situation, with the eruption column so high, the main risk is that it collapses, falls due to gravity because of its own weight and causes a pyroclastic flow," Gabriel Orozco, a vulcanologist with Chile's geological and mining service, said on local TV.

A pyroclastic flow is a superheated current of gas and rock that can destroy nearly everything in its path and travel at speeds upwards of 200 to 300 kilometres per hour.

Canadian-born Trevor Moffat, who lives in Ensenada, some 10 kilometres from the volcano, said the eruption happened without warning. Volcano Calbuco's last known eruption was in 1972 and the most recent major eruption happened in 1961.

"It sounded like a big tractor trailer passing by the road, rattling and shaking, guttural rumbling ... we left everything there, grabbed my kid, my dog, got in the car with my wife," said Moffat, who was driving to nearby Puerto Varas at the time.

"All the neighbours were outside, a lot of young people crying. Armageddon-type reaction."

The Number Of Volcanoes Erupting Right Now Is Greater Than The 20th Century’s YEARLY Average


Is the number of volcanic eruptions worldwide increasing?  Yes.  During the 20th century, there were a total of 3,542 volcanic eruptions globally.  That works out to approximately 35 eruptions per year.  That may sound like a lot, but according to Volcano Discovery there are 36 volcanoes erupting around the world right now.  In other words, the number of volcanoes erupting as you read this article is greater than the 20th century’s yearly average.  And all of this is part of a larger trend.  In 2013, we witnessed the most volcanic eruptions worldwide that we had ever seen in a single year, and 2015 is already threatening to be another one for the record books.  All over the planet, volcanoes that have long been dormant are beginning to wake up, and this is greatly puzzling many scientists.  Fortunately, most of the eruptions in recent years have been relatively small.  But scientists tell us that if we do see a VEI 7 or a VEI 8 eruption today, the amount of energy that would be released would be somewhere in the neighborhood of a million nuclear bombs going off all at once, and such an eruption would completely literally transform our civilization almost overnight.

The last VEI 7 eruption that the world witnessed was in Indonesia in 1815.

According to the Express, that massive eruption resulted in a “year without summer” and created famine all over the globe…

The deadly eruption of Mount Tambora in Indonesia sparked what was known as the ‘Year Without Summer’ in 1815 as crops failed and livestock died in much of the Northern Hemisphere – causing the worst famine for hundreds of years.

However, academics have warned that the chances of a similar disaster happening in the next 85 years, which could see the Earth flung back into a “pre-civilisation state”, was estimated to be as high as one in 10.

Due to dense population, an eruption which killed tens of thousands only two centuries ago would now be “cataclysmic” for today’s population, the authors warned.

“Large volcanic eruptions have the potential to impact climate, anthropogenic infrastructure and resource supplies on a global scale,” the panel of geologists, economists and climate scientists from the European Science Foundation have written in a new paper.

If you don’t think that such a thing could happen today, you should keep in mind that global food production is just barely keeping up with global food demand.  In fact, in some years the world actually eats more food than it produces.  Global food reserves are at perilously low levels, and so a “year without summer” would be absolutely cataclysmic.

And right now, some of the biggest volcanoes in the world are starting to wake up.

For example, consider what is happening at one of the most prominent volcanoes in Iceland

Small earthquake swarms occurred at shallow depths during the past days near the volcano. The quakes were located approx. 6-10 km south of Hekla volcano and at shallow depths around 5 km. The largest quakes were two magnitude 2.6 events at 4 km depth on Thursday (9 April). It is impossible to say whether the earthquakes are linked to volcanic activity and thus might be precursors of a new eruption, but Hekla is probably the most likely candidate volcano for the next eruption to occur on Iceland.

One of the country’s most active, and the most frequently erupting volcano, Hekla has been believed to be “due” and have its magma chamber filled for several years now. Known for not giving much precursory signals (and only few earthquakes), an eruption would not be a surprise at all. Hekla volcano’s last eruption was 15 years ago.

In Japan, a swarm of earthquakes around Mount Zao has authorities extremely concerned

Fears of fresh eruption of Mount Zao, a volcano that sits on the border of the Yamagata and Miyagi prefectures, rattled Japan after the country’s meteorological agency recorded 12 volcanic earthquakes on Tuesday. The seismic activity prompted warnings of a volcanic eruption, with the agency asking the public to stay safe from falling rocks in a 1.2 km radius of the volcano, The Japan Times reported.

And a massive volcano near the border between North Korea and China is showing signs of life.  If Mount Paektu were to fully erupt, scientists tell us that the energy released could potentially be equivalent to “1,000,000 nuclear weapons all going off at the same time”

More than 1,000 years ago Mount Paektu blew its top, sending tons of rock and magma spewing into the air and blanketing the much of the region in a thick layer of ash.

“It’s hard really to imagine the scale,” Oppenheimer said, “but you’re talking about something like 1,000,000 nuclear weapons all going off at the same time in terms of the energy involved.”

If an eruption of that magnitude were to happen today, it would truly be a global event.

For instance, consider the chaos that an eruption in Iceland in 1783 caused.  The following comes from the Daily Mail

In Iceland an estimated 20–25% of the population died in the famine and from fluorine poisoning after the fissure eruptions ceased.

Around 80% of sheep, 50% of cattle, and 50% of horses died because of dental and skeletal fluorosis from the 8 million tons of hydrogen fluoride that were released.

There is evidence that the Laki eruption also weakened African and Indian monsoon circulations, reducing precipitation over areas in Africa.

The resulting famine that afflicted Egypt in 1784 caused nearly one sixth of the country’s population to die out.

In Britain the summer of 1783 was known as the ‘sand summer’ because of the ash fallout and an estimated 25,000 people died due to breathing problems.

The truth is that volcanoes are far, far, far more of a threat to our climate than human activity is.  All throughout history, volcanic eruptions have instantly changed the climate in a dramatic way.

Mexico's Colima Volcano Spews Giant Ash Column (Apr 15)

Mexico's Colima volcano erupted twice on Wednesday, spewing a 3.5-kilometre-high column of ash that rained down on a nearby city.

The Jalisco state civil protection agency said a "moderate" quantity of ash fell on Ciudad Guzman, a town near the western state of Colima, where the volcano is located.

A civil protection official said there were no reports of damage or injuries in the city of 100,000 people.

Officials urged the population to use masks if they venture out of their homes, remove excess ash from rooftops so they do not collapse and cover water drains.

Colima is about 690 kilometers west of Mexico City, on the border of Colima and Jalisco states.

Growing Volcano Threat in Kamchatka Jeopardizes Air Traffic (Apr 13)

Shiveluch volcano has posed a threat to air traffic because its volcanic activity has been gaining force.

Ash plumes have spread 319 kilometers east of the volcano, rising high into the air above a large area of the Pacific Ocean, a source from the Kamchatka branch of the Geophysics Service of the Russian Academy of Sciences told TASS on Monday.

Based on recent activity, ash clouds may reach an altitude of 10,000 meters above the sea, experts said. It was not immediately known how far the volcanic tail might spread yet.

Two eruptions within 30 minutes were registered on April 13 when the volcano discharged ashes to the altitude of five and seven kilometers, respectively.

The ashes went up into the air above the Pacific Ocean and have remained there since.

Peru's Erupting Ubinas Volcano Triggers Massive Mudslide (Apr 13)

Dramatic images emerged from Peru after the erupting Ubinas volcano set off mudslides from its slopes, blocking access to the town of Ubinas.

A series of explosions that spewed gases and ash some 2,500 metres in the air in recent days was responsible for the mudslides, according to Peru's Geological Institute of Mining and Metallurgy.

Authorities in Peru have warned local communities to be on alert for further explosions and the emmission of ashes for the next few weeks. Local inhabitants have been advised to wear protective masks and glasses.

The Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP) had been conducting geogphysical measurements when the mudslide of rocks and debris began to cascade down the mountain over the weekend. The team of specialists from the South Volcano Observatory (OVS) filmed the event.

The IGP reports that the landslide was due to the combination of large ash deposits from the volcano’s emissions on April 8 and the heavy snowfalls in the days following, on April 10,11. Then as the skies cleared on April 12 and 13, the temperatures rose causing the snow to melt and therefore the mudslide to form.

Last week on April 8, the Ubinas volcano erupted causing a 2.5 km column of ash above the crater to reach more than 15 kilometers southeast, covering everything in its path.

For about 40 years the volcano had been inactive, until 2006 when it began to register more activity. Since then, seismic activity, small eruptions, rocks and ash spewing from its crater have been a common occurrence.
