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

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.

Philippines Mt Bulusan Volcano Explodes a Day After Mt Kanlaon  (Jun 19)

After a week of being silent, Mount Bulusan spewed ash on Sunday afternoon.

The explosion took place at around 1:03 in the afternoon. The explosion was steam-driven and created a 300-meter ash column above the crater.

The event lasted for about seven minutes based on the seismic record, drifting towards the northwest portion of the volcano.

Last week, the volcano exploded at 11:35 a.m., sending an ash column about 2,000 meters high.

This latest event comes only a day after the nearby Mt Kanlaon eruption yesterday.

Kanlaon and Bulusan are both active volcanoes that had a recent history of eruptions. They have not record however, of undergoing eruptions at the same time or one after the other.

A possible simultaneous eruption could put a stress on volunteer and government disaster management authorities and this early, President Benigno Aquino III has ordered the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (NDRRMC) to closely monitor developments and prepare for the evacuation of people living in vulnerable areas if necessary.

“Field personnel are being mobilised to ensure the safety of the people. There are permanent exclusion zones being observed within a certain perimeter near the two volcanoes,” according to Philippines Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs), Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma.

El Salvador's San Miguel Volcano Erupts (Jun 18)

The San Miguel Volcano exploded violently on Saturday at 4:10am local time.

This new explosion covered the surrounding area with dust and was preceded by a sharp increase in seismic activity.

At the end of May 2016, seismograms started recording a very significant increase in tremors, most probably related to fluid circulation within the giant. The activity gradually declined until June 13 where again, 400 tremors were recorded and 500 the day after and another 500 on June 15.

This succession of seismicity peaks in June was accompanied by an increase in the amount of SO2 in the plume degassing.

Ash has been reported in villages around the volcano.

Degassing is still observed from the crater forming a plume about 400m high.

The last eruption of the San Miguel volcano occurred on December 29, 2013. It prompted the evacuation of thousands of people living in a 3 km radius around the volcano and was also preceded by increased seismic activity.

Costa Rica's Turrialba Volcano Repeatedly Spews Ash (Jun 16)

Repeated ash emanations at the volcano reaching nearly a mile high and 7.5 miles from the crater arrived at nearby communities along with the smell of sulphur.

Sustained tremor activity that started at 8 p.m. Wednesday marked a new spike in activity at Turrialba Volcano. At 1:45 a.m. Thursday the crater began spewing ash and vapor.

The gas and ash plume reached some 1,500 meters (4,900 feet) above the crater of the volcano, located some 50 kilometers east of San José.

Emanations remained constant until 7:15 a.m.

Two more ash spewings occurred at 8:05 a.m. and 9:05 a.m. and lasted 20 and 10 minutes respectively.

Wind conditions during the morning caused ash to disperse from the volcano at about 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) northwest of the crater.

Ash from the plume reached communities north of Cartago and San José provinces, and as far as Braulio Carrillo National Park.

Residents of the northern Cartago canton of Oreamuno and from various communities north of Heredia province reported a slight smell of sulfur Thursday morning on OVSICORI’s Facebook page.

At 3:59 p.m. RSN monitoring stations recorded a new burst of ash that lasted about seven minutes and reached some 2,000 meters height (6,560 ft).

Turrialba Volcano since October has recorded important activity, with dozens of explosions of ash, gas and rocks that increased in late April, some of which extended for several hours.

The National Emergency Commission (CNE) in May established a 5-km restricted access area around the volcano. Entrance to the Turrialba Volcano National Park has been closed to all visitors since 2014.

Materials expelled by the volcano have reached communities in San José, Alajuela, Heredia, Cartago and Limón provinces.

Mt Kanlaon Volcano Erupts in Philippines (Jun 18)

A powerful eruption at the Mt Kanlaon volcano Saturday morning sent a towering ash cloud nearly a mile high and blanketed several barangays in La Carlota and Bago cities in Negros Occidental with ash.

The eruption prompted aviation officials to issue a warning for all pilots to stay away from the area.

The volcano, located about 510 kilometres south of Manila, has been more active than usual since November, prompting the Government to ban hikers from its slopes.

Ash fall alert was raised in provincial capital city, Bacolod, as well as in the cities of Bago, La Carlota, and San Carlos and the towns of Moises Padilla, Murcia, and Pontevedra, all in Negros Occidental.

Phivolcs has placed Mt. Kanlaon under Alert Level 1 and Caelian said it is only when it reaches Level 3 that evacuation will be imposed.

Meanwhile, Phivolcs warns that there is a no-entry zone along a four-kilometer radius from the volcano.

On March 29, Kanlaon erupted, affecting several residents by ash fall. The eruption destroyed hectares of grassland in Negros Occidental.
