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

Increasingly Frequent Explosions at Sumatra's Sinabung Volcano (Feb 28)

Over the past days, activity at the volcano seems to have picked up. The frequency and size of explosions from the summit have increased and generated several ash plumes that rose up to approx 3 km height above the summit.

In addition, collapses of parts of the lava lobe generated small to moderate pyroclastic flows that traveled up to 3 km down on the ESE side. One of them on Saturday reached again the (already mostly destroyed and abandoned) village of Simacem on the ESE flank at only 3 km distance from the crater.

For the local population, this means the long-lasting (more than 2 years now) crisis has no end in sight: the exclusion zone of 4-5 km radius around the volcano (depending on which sector) remains in place. More than 9500 people evacuated from villages in this risk area continue to live in a total of 9 now semi-permanent shelters.

Continuing Explosions at Nicaragua's Momotombo Volcano (Feb 28)

After 110 years of relative calm - 70 eruptions have been registered since December 1, 2015.

Nicaragua remains attentive to two strong explosions occurred Sunday in the volcano Momotombo, located in the western Department of León, reports Today Nicaragua. The explosions were perceived by residents of that territory and Managua.

The Coordinator of the Nicaraguan Council for Communication and Citizenship, Rosario Murillo, said in a special intervention through press media that both explosions were accompanied by the spewing of gases, ash and incandescent material.

The first explusion was at 11:37am, the second at 12:38, material and ash reachin  500 to 1000 metres above the crater.

Commenting that the authorities and doctors are deployed to assist communities affected by the fall of ash and sand, Murillo called the population to be calm, and to maintain themselves informed, though the media.

Murillo said that the disaster prevention system is activated in the Department of León.

The volcano continues to produce on average 2-3 vulcanian-type explosions per day. Some of them seem to generate small pyroclastic flows.

The above video showing spectacular footage of the erupting volcano was recorded last week.

Fears over 'red alert' Volcano as it erupts TWICE in one day sending ash 3KM high


THERE are major concerns a deadly huge volcano could be about to face a massive eruption after two explosions the same day saw a 3km (1.8 mile)-high smoke and ash cloud hurled into the sky.

Officials have placed the 2,460-metre Sinabung volcano on the Indonesia island of Sumatra under a high risk warning since it started erupting after 400 years of laying dormant.

However, this week's blasts have been some of the biggest and closest apart since it woke up in 2010.

Authorities are now closely monitoring the magma mount.

Agus Salihin, a volcanologist at the Sinabung observation post, said the eruption was one of the biggest since early 2015.

It has been erupting continually since 2010, but there are fears the frequency is increasing.

The Indonesian government has placed an area of 3.5 km (2.1 miles) radius around the peak under a red-alert high-risk danger zone.

The government has an evacuation plan in place for the area and evacuated everyone about 10,300 villagers in the most high-risk danger zone.

Strong Explosions at Ecuador's Tungurahua Volcano (Feb 26)

Two large explosions occurred at the volcano yesterday noon from 12:12 local time. The first and larger explosion produced an ash plume that rose approx. 5000 meters above the summit.

The ash plume dispersed mainly to the west and northwest where ash fall occurred in areas including Choglontús, Pillate, Cahuaji and El Manzano.

The explosion itself, a typical so-called "vulcanian"-type eruption, was preceded only by a short (lasting little more than an hour), but intense seismic swarm of shallow earthquakes caused by internal fluid movements and rock fracturing as pressurized gasses started to disintegrate the overlying plug.

International Experts Sent in to Monitor Erupting Nicaragua Volcanoes (Feb 23)

Volcano experts from the US, UK, Costa Rica and local geologists are observing activity at four active peaks in Nicaragua after a flurry of explosions.

The biggest, and most active, is the enormous 1,297-metre Momotombo stratovolcano, near the city of León.

Momotombo, on the north of Lake Managua 25 miles from Nicaragua’s capital Managua, blew for the first time in 110 years in December, and has been active ever since.

In a post about the situation Costa Rican English-speaking news site The Tico Times wrote it had sent "geologists and local townspeople into a tizzy"

"In fact, there’s been so much volcanic and seismic activity in Nicaragua lately that experts from the United States, the United Kingdom, Nicaragua and Costa Rica are carefully studying and observing the situation."

Geologists from the US Geological Survey announced last week they are studying and assessing risks from Momotombo and the other active volcanoes in the country.

Both Télica and Masaya began erupting at the same time as Momotombo, and continue to do so.

Meanwhile, Cerro Negro, which has so far not erupted, recorded bursts of seismic activity last week.

We don’t really think about it on a daily basis, but the Earth is still changing all the time. It just happens so slowly that we can’t really perceive it. But every now and then, things speed up… a lot.
Recently, the crew of the Maiken was enjoying a leisurely sail through the South Pacific when they spotted a strange discoloration on the water. They moved in closer to inspect it, but by the time they realized what it was, it was too late.

They were there to witness the birth of a new island. A huge amount of pumice stone had risen to the surface and it looked like a beach in the middle of the sea but when they rode through it, they saw the water start to boil and then witnessed the birth of a new island from an erupting underwater volcano.

When This Boat Crew Realized What They Were Seeing, It Was Almost Too Late To Escape.

Increasing Eruptions at Nicaragua's Momotombo Volcano (Feb 18)

Activity at the volcano has been increasing.

During the past days, explosions have become frequent, with intervals of only few hours. The largest on Wednesday evening at 20:50 local time showered almost the cone with incandescent ejecta and produced ash plumes up to 1 km tall.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that some of the eruptions also have produced small pyroclastic flows.

Ash fall was reported in the communities of La Concha, Matuzán, Boca de Cántaro, Flor de la Piedra and Puerto Momotombo.

According to the Nicaraguan Institute of Territorial Studies (INET) reported that microseismic activity remains high, suggesting that more eruptions are likely to occur in the near future.

Authorities activate emergency plans after two volcanoes erupt in Nicaragua


Authorities in Nicaragua activated emergency plans after explosions occurred at both the Momotombo and Telica volcanoes on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Masaya volcano has also witnessed an increase in seismic activity in recent days.

According to the Nicaraguan Institute of Territorial Studies (INETER), the Telica volcano, located in the Leon department, erupted at 8:28 a.m. Saturday morning, launching a column of ash and gas some 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) into the air. At least 20 smaller eruptions were recorded at the volcano in the subsequent hours. Ashfall was reported in some nearby communities.

About two hours after the first explosion at Telica, the Momotombo volcano – which had been essentially dormant for 100 years before exploding to life in December – launched a column of ash and gas more than 1,600 feet (500 meters) into the air.

There were no injuries reported in either event, though Civil Defense and municipal authorities said they were activating emergency plans in order to provide a rapid response should communities become at risk. Civil Defense authorities also visited communities near the Momotombo to coordinate evacuation routes should a major incident occur.

Large pyroclastic flows at volcanoes in Indonesia and Nicaragua yesterday.

Large Pyroclastic Flow at Indonesia's Semeru Volcano (Feb 13)

A pyroclastic flow (hot avalanche of fragmented volcanic material) occurred on the volcano's southern side yesterday morning, reaching 4.5 km length and producing an ash plume that rose to 26,000 ft (8 km) altitude.

Darwin VAAC raised the aviation color code to RED. Another, smaller flow seems to have occurred today.



Pyroclastic Flow at Nicaragua's Momotombo Volcano (Feb 13)

Another explosion occurred at the volcano yesterday at 10:40 local time.

It produced a pyroclastic flow that descended the NE flank through the prominent ravine that also had channeled the recent lava flow from 2015.

Two relatively smaller explosions occurred at the volcano on Feb 12, one at around 02:20 and another at 11:15 local time.

Guatemala's Fuego Volcano Spews Ash on Nearby Towns (Feb 10)

The overnight eruption of Fuego Volcano sent ash billowing up to five kilometers into the sky and rivers of lava up to two kilometers long, according to Guatemala's Volcanology Institute.

This is the third paroxysm this year at the volcano. Over the past days, strombolian and effusive activity had gradually increased into now pulsating lava fountains and well-alimented lava flows.

Light tremors were also felt up to 25 kilometers away.

Strong gusts of wind could carry the clouds of "fine ash particles" to Guatemala City, 45 kilometers distant, said David de Leon, a spokesman for the government's disaster coordination service.

But thus far authorities were maintaining a yellow alert and were not ordering evacuations. However schools in the vicinity were ordered closed.

De Leon said the ash had so far fallen on three towns -- including Antigua Guatemala, a small, UNESCO-listed city dating back nearly five centuries and which served as the capital until the 18th century.
