"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

Kelut Volcano Update: - 100,000 Evacuated, 3 Dead (Feb 14)

A powerful volcanic eruption on Indonesia's most populous island blasted ash and debris 18 kilometers (12 miles) into the air Friday, killing three people and forcing authorities to evacuate more than 100,000 and close seven airports.

The eruption of Mount Kelud on Java island could be heard up to 200 kilometers (125 miles) away, Indonesia's disaster agency said.

"The eruption sounded like thousands of bombs exploding," Ratno Pramono, a 35-year-old farmer, said as he checked his property in the village of Sugihwaras, about 5 kilometers (3 miles) from the crater. "I thought doomsday was upon us. Women and children were screaming and crying."

Preliminary estimations are that the eruption produced 80 million cubic meters of tephra. At the moment, the volcano continues to emit ash and steam, accompanied by tremors. The government of East Java has declared the state of emergency for the affected area. 350,000 dust masks are being distributed.

BNPB (Civil protection) confirmed 3 fatalities caused by the eruption. Two people died after their houses collapsed under the weight of ash. All of the victims were in Pandasari village less than 7 km from the volcano where 20 cm of ash has fallen.

By late afternoon Friday, ash had spread farther across the island and was falling on the large highlands city of Bandung, more than 500 kilometers away. The government volcanology center said it was uncertain whether ash would also reach the capital, Jakarta, more than 600 kilometers away.

Thousands Evacuated Following Powerful Eruptions at Mt Kelud (Feb 13)
Thousands of people on Java island are being evacuated after Mount Kelud erupted, an Indonesian official said.

Volcanic ash from the major eruption has led to the closure of three international airports and darkened skies on Indonesia's densely populated Java Island.

Ash covered the ground up to 130 kilometers (80 miles) away in Surabaya, the country's second-largest city, witnesses there said.

The country's transport ministry said Jogyakarta, Solo and Surabaya aiports were closed due to reduced visibility and the dangers posed to aircraft engines by ash.

Muhammad Hendrasto, head of the Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Centre, said the volcano in Kediri regency erupted about 90 minutes after authorities raised its status to the highest level.

He urged about 200,000 people living in 36 villages within the danger zone of six miles (10km) from the crater to evacuate.

A series of huge blasts unleashing stones and gravel caused panic among villagers who immediately fled to safer areas.

"The rains of gravel and sand have reached 15 km from the crater, hitting and impairing those being evacuated. This means that the evacuees must go farther than 15 km," Xinhua quoted Umar Rosadi, a volcanologist, as saying.

Based on data recorded days before the eruption, the official said that there are at least 21,000 people living in the dangerous zone.

Mt. Sinabung's Eruption Spawns Tornadoes (Feb 1)

When Mt Sinabung erupted on Feb 1, pyroclastic flows left red-hot deposits along the way.

As the air above the deposits heated and quickly rose, a group of small tornadoes formed, twisting their way down the mountainside.

The video of the event was captured by Dr. Richard Roscoe of Photovolcanica.

* More Haze For Southern Peninsula Malaysia [Malaysian Digest; 04 February, 2014]

KUALA LUMPUR: The northwesterly winds may cause ashes from the recently erupted Mount Sinabung volcano in Indonesia to reach the southern peninsular of Malaysia, causing flight disruptions and reduced visibility.

The Malaysian Meteorological Department (MET) said, recent reports showed that the winds may continue until Wednesday. MET added that it will continue monitoring the situation and update its information on the direction of the wind and its possible threat to flights and visibility.

Last Saturday, the National Agency for Disaster Management (BNPB) Indonesia confirmed around 16 deaths and 3 injuries following the eruption of Mount Sinabung in the district of Karo, North Sumatera.

Hot clouds of ash and smoke continues to emanate from the volcano at dangerous levels, affecting the health of the people in the surrounding area.

Those who stay close to the area have been moved to a temporary safe house.

Sinabung is one of 129 active volcanoes in Indonesia, which sits on the Pacific Ring of Fire, a belt of seismic activity running around the basin of the Pacific Ocean.

Volcano's Ash Affects One-Third of Ecuador Provinces (Feb 3)

The Tungurahua volcano in Ecuador has been spewing lava and ash, covering villages hundreds of kilometres away with a white dusting.

The ash travelled as far as Loja province, on the border with Peru.

A cloud of ash that climbed more than 2.5-mile-high (4-kilometer) from Tungurahua volcano on Monday has affected a third of Ecuador's provinces and forced the suspension of classes at some schools after temporarily closing a regional airport.

A series of 10 powerful cannon-like blasts shook the 16,480-foot (5,023-meter) volcano overnight and could be heard for miles. Tungurahua is nearly 90 miles (140 kilometers) south of Quito.

Fernanda Naranjo of Ecuador's geophysics institute said there have been no pyroclastic flow -- fast-moving, super-hot fluidized masses of rock fragments and gases-- since Saturday.

One such flow halted less than a mile from a highway, according to a bulletin posted on the institute's website. But none has reached villages, where residents have been evacuating their homes during the nighttime, then returning during the day. The volcano resumed erupting late last week after being quiet since October.

In Monday's bulletin, the institute said it is likely that Tungurahua will continue to experience explosions and produce small and moderate pyroclastic flows. It also said continued adverse health effects and more disruptions of air travel were possible.

On Sunday, ash from Tungurahua forced the closure for several hours Sunday of the Mariscal Lamar airport in Cuenca, Ecuador's third-largest city.

The government called for voluntary evacuations of hundreds of people living near Tungurahua, officials distributed masks to protect them against the inhalation of ash.

22 Volcanoes in Indonesia on Raised Alert Status (Feb 3)

Three volcanoes in Indonesia are at high risk of erupting, authorities warned after Mount Sinabung killed 15 people in North Sumatra over the weekend.

Authorities said Karangetang and Lokon volcanoes on Sulawesi Island and Roketada in East Nusa Tenggara have been placed on high alert – the third in a four level scale.

Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman for the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB), told the Jakarta Globe: "The [third level of alert] status means that all the data show that an eruption or a disaster could happen. It means preparation for the people living in the dangerous areas; setting up emergency facilities, daily coordination, and full-time patrols."

As many as 19 volcanoes in Indonesia have shown increasing volcanic activities and their statuses have been raised from normal to alert level II.

Head of Data and Information Center of National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) Sutopo Purwo Nugroho issued a statement, here on Monday that the 19 volcanoes are Kelud, Raung, Ibu, Lewotobi Perempuan, Ijen, Gamkonora, Soputan, Sangeangapi, Papandayan, Dieng, Seulewah Agam, Gamalama, Bromo, Semeru, Talang, Anak Krakatau, Marapi, Dukono and Kerinci.

"The alert level II simply means an increasing activity of the volcano above normal status; all symptoms are taken into account." Nugroho assured.

Tourism centers, hotels, agriculture and peoples economic activities outside the exclusion zone might be affected. "It happens at Mount Bromo, Ijen, Dieng, Tangkuban Perahu and Papandayan," Nugroho added.

Hotels and tourism centers in Kabanjahe, North Sumatra, were deserted as people are afraid to visit these places.

There are stages from normal, alert level II (Waspada), alert level III (Siaga) and alert level IV (Awas) depending on the threat potential," Nugroho explained.

The status of Mount Kelud of East Java was raised from normal to alert level II on Sunday (Feb. 2) following its increasing volcanic activity.

Meanwhile, there are three volcanoes on alert level III (Siaga): Karangetang (N Sulawesi), Lokon (N Sulawesi) and Rokatenda (E Nusa Tenggara).

Mount Sinabung of North Sumatra is the only volcano on alert level IV (Awas)
