"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

Mexico's Popocatepetl Volcano Spews Ash, Cancels Flights (Feb 25)

A series of explosions at  Popocatepetl volcano tossed hot rocks 700 metres down the volcano's cone and sent a column of ash nearly 4 kilometres into the sky.

It was the second time in 10 days the Popocatepetl volcano east of Mexico City spewed ash into the sky, forcing cancellation of flights at the nearby Puebla International Airport.

A statement from the government's airport oversight agency Wednesday said operations in Puebla were suspended at 6:30 a.m. (7:30 a.m. EST) to allow airport personnel to clean runways and other areas covered in ash.

On February 15, a similar eruption caused the cancellation of flights at the airport.

Elevated volcanic activity reported in Sumatra and Kamchatka.

Sinabung (Sumatra)

A high-level eruption at 15:22 UTC with an ash plume rising to 45,000 ft (15 km) altitude was reported a short time ago.

On Feb 19, Mt. Sinabung spewed volcanic material the farthest since 2010, burning houses in two villages in a 3-to-5-kilometer radius to the volcano’s south.

Fortunately, no victims were reported as residents had been permanently relocated.

Temburun villager Nelsi Singarimbun said he had not seen a lava flow reach as far as it did on Wednesday since the volcano erupted in 2010.

“Usually, the Mount Sinabung lava flow never reaches that far, but this time it reached Suka Meriah and Gurukinayan villages. This is the farthest I’ve ever seen,” Nelsi told The Jakarta Post on Thursday.

Nelsi said he witnessed the enormous molten lava flow from his home located 4.5 km west of the volcano.

He added that the lava flow felled trees and razed homes in Suka Meriah and Gurukinayan from 7:20 p.m. until 8:10 p.m.

“The lava flow, which lasted for around 50 minutes, burned trees and some homes there.”

Nelsi added that the incident had caused fear among residents living around Sinabung as the lava flow had reached settlements.

Payung villager Alfinus Ginting also expressed fear about the increased volcanic activities of late.

“Residents have been on the alert at home from last night until this afternoon. They are afraid because Sinabung has continued to erupt lately.”

The crater lake of Mt Ruapehu, located on North Island / New Zealand has passed since the beginning of December 2014 from 15 ° C to over 40 ° C, according to the report of the GNS of January 30, 2015.

Measurements carried out in mid-January show changes in lake chemistry, particularly increased volcanic gas discharge, convection currents and discoloration: it went from blue-green to pale gray. All these changes indicate a new warming of the hydrothermal system beneath the summit lake.

Experts confirm increased activity at Turrialba Volcano

Residents near Turrialba are reporting increased volcanic emissions since the early hours of Wednesday, Feb. 11.

(Ericka Calvo Durán/OVSICORI Facebook)


Tall, white columns of vapor and gas on Wednesday morning surprised residents near the Turrialba Volcano, east of Cartago, as the western crater registered increased activity that formed a 1.5-kilometer fumarole, the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) reported.

María Martínez Cruz, a volcanology and geochemistry expert at OVSICORI, explained that emissions don’t yet include ash, a situation that last year affected residents north of Cartago and as far away as the provinces of San José, Heredia and Limón.

“We haven’t received any reports of ashes being emitted, and the gas and vapor plume has maintained its size. At its peak it reached a maximum height of 4 kilometers above sea level, or some 1.5 kilometers above the crater,” Martínez said.

Reports from both OVSICORI and the University of Costa Rica’s National Seismological Network (RSN) state that activity at Turrialba can be considered within normal parameters and is caused by the large amount of rainfall registered in the area in recent days and an increase in the crater’s temperature.

OVSICORI and RSN experts on Thursday will conduct inspections at Turrialba to take measurements and samples from the crater.

In addition to gas and vapor, experts have not registered any irregular increase in the area’s seismicity, Martínez said.

“At this time activity at Turrialba is lower than that currently registered at Irazú Volcano,” she said. Irazú, also in Cartago, is currently experiencing a series of minor tremors that have ocurred since December.

On Oct. 29, 2014, Turrialba, located 67 km northeast of San José, registered its largest explosions and ash emission in the past 150 years.

At the time, 180 hectares north of Cartago were affected on some level, but the Agriculture Ministry’s director of extension services, Felipe Arguedas, said there was no cause for concern about long-term consequences for human health.

Dairy and crop farming are the primary productive activities in the northeastern region of Cartago, and farmers mostly grow vegetables, tubers and flowers. About 80 percent of potatoes consumed in Costa Rica are produced in this region.

New volcanic activity in Tonga

Tongan authorities say fresh volcanic activity at the Home Reef volcano, near the northern islands of Vava'u, is creating a steam cloud two kilometres high.

Government geologist Rennie Vaiomounga says a local pilot first reported the activity on Tuesday afternoon.

Mr Vaiomounga says that report has since been confirmed by a boat in the area.

"We got the report from the Real Tonga airlines pilot about they saw a plume coming out from the area which we roughly estimate the area should be from the Home Reef about 40 nautical miles southwest of Vava'u. It's one of the submarine volcanoes."

Mr Vaiomounga says a team will be sent to monitor the activity once weather conditions have improved.

The Home Reef volcano last had signficant activity in 2006.

One month ago volcanic activity disrupted flights and created land in the Hunga Ha'apai area further south.

Volcano Ash To Blame For 'Milky' Rain In Oregon, Washington, Meteorologists Suggest

Meteorologists are stumped after rainfall in Oregon, Washington and neighboring areas in which the precipitation appeared to be dirty, or milky, in texture. Photographs posted by the U.S. National Weather Service indicate that, unlike typically clear rain, this liquid was infused with something else. But what?

The so-called milky rain, pelting the Pacific Northwest Friday morning, left cars and other outdoor fixtures covered with streaks of white, dusty material.

A number of theories abound, with meteorologists telling BuzzFeed the likeliest cause is dirt and dust from the Northwest landscape being circulated within the weather system.

“The ash is more than likely from Volcano Shiveluch in Kamchatka Krai, Russia, which spewed an ash plume to about the 22,000-foot level in late January,” the Walla Walla County Emergency Management agency in Walla Walla, Washington said in a Facebook post. It added there are a number of active volcanoes that could be responsible. “It has been deposited in a wide spread area, including Washington and Oregon,” the agency said.

The right-leaning media outlet the Blaze suggested the cloudiness of the rainwater could be caused by dust from recent eruptions of Japan’s Sakurajima volcano. Commenters beneath the article took on a decidedly more conspiratorial bent, accusing the liberal media of being too quick to blame climate change.

The NWS plans to re-examine old satellite data with the hope of finding out exactly what happened. This type of activity isn’t totally unprecedented in Oregon, although ashlike rain typically falls toward the end of a long hot summer.

“Oregon has strong winds,” NWS meteorologist Mark Tuner told BuzzFeed. “In some summer dry spells, we’ll get big dust storms, and then if it rains, we can see a similar thing. ... It’s a mystery at this point.”

Guatemala's Fuego volcano spews ash, forces airport closure

Feb 7 (Reuters) - Guatemala's Fuego volcano belched black ash into the sky on Saturday, causing the government to evacuate 100 nearby residents and forcing the closure of the capital's international airport, President Otto Perez told reporters.

The volcano, about 25 miles (40 km) southwest of the capital, forced the cancellation of several flights as Guatemala's main airport shut down and workers sought to clear the runways of ash.

Officials said the amount of falling ash was moderate but urged nearby residents to use masks or wet cloth to guard against breathing dangerous contaminants.

The airport is expected to reopen by early Sunday morning. (Reporting by Sofia Menchu; Writing by David Alire Garcia; Editing by Paul Tait)

New Volcanic Eruption off South Africa After Quake Swarm (Feb 4)

A new eruption has started on remote Reunion Island, where Piton de la Fournaise is now producing a lava flow that is snaking down its slopes.

The new eruption is coming from the southern side of the volcano and webcams show the lava from Piton de Bert, one of the peaks of Piton de la Fournaise.

The lava flow is descending SSW and has already reached the base of the Dolomieu crater, i.e. the floor of the enclos. Its length is more than 1 km.

A swarm of earthquakes preceded this eruption, with at least a few hundred recorded earlier today. 

This is the second eruption in the past year at Piton de la Fournaise after 3 years of quiet. That eruption only lasted a few hours and the volcano was recently lowered from a volcanic alert status.

Similar to Kilauea, the volcano mainly produces lava flows, although the lava at Piton de la Fournaise is less viscous that at Kilauea thanks to the higher alkali content (sodium, potassium, calcium) in the lava.
