Japan: A new island appears in the Ogasawara Islands - November 2013

Active volcanoes (Sep 28, 2012)



"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

Vanuatu Orders Evacuation of Island with Rumbling Volcano

WELLINGTON, New Zealand—Vanuatu officials on Thursday ordered the complete evacuation of an island in the Pacific archipelago where a rumbling, belching volcano is threatening to blow.

Boats were soon to begin ferrying residents off Ambae island, which is home to about 11,000 people, in a process expected to take about a week. The Manaro volcano has been increasingly active for a week or more, raising fears of a major eruption.

Government spokesman Hilaire Bule said ministers decided they couldn’t risk people’s lives and so ordered the compulsory evacuation. Previously, people had been evacuated to other areas on the island itself.

Ambae resident Lilian Garae said she could see “smoke coming out from the hills” and hear regular booming noises from the volcano. She said she was waiting to hear when she might have to leave her home and where she might be sent.

Ambae is about 400 square kilometers (154 square miles), making it a little larger than the city of Detroit. It is one of about 65 inhabited islands in the Pacific nation about one-quarter of the way from Australia to Hawaii.

The activity measure of the volcano was raised last weekend to Level 4, on a scale in which Level 5 represents a major eruption, and an emergency was declared Monday.

New Zealand’s military flew a plane over the volcano on Tuesday, and said huge columns of smoke, ash and volcanic rocks were billowing from the crater.

27 SEP 2017. Imagery taken during a New Zealand Defence Force aerial survey on September 27 showed huge columns of smoke, ash and volcanic rocks billowing from the crater of Manaro Voui volcano on Vanuatu's Ambae Island.

Some residents have left the island voluntarily. For them, it’s a waiting game to see whether the volcano erupts or returns to normal activity that’s not a threat. Officials say they have no real way of predicting what the volcano will do next and that evacuees will just have to wait it out.

Bule said the evacuation will be carried out by boat and continue through Oct. 6. He said residents will be moved onto nearby islands. Officials are setting up two sites on Pentecost Island, he said, where evacuees will be housed in government buildings or in temporary camp sites.

Ambae island has long been volcanically active. A previous eruption in 2005 forced about 3,300 people to temporarily leave their homes and relocate elsewhere on the island, but didn’t lead to an evacuation of the island itself.

Dickinson Tevi, a spokesman for the Vanuatu Red Cross Society, said the relief agency has been shipping water and shelter equipment to Ambae island.

“People are quite afraid with the sound of rumbling going on,” he said. “They are very uncertain and afraid.”

Bule said the government had allocated 200 million vatu ($1.9 million) toward the evacuation effort and was deploying 60 police officers to help people leave and to ensure there was no looting.

“We’ve prepared for cyclones by putting evacuation centers on the island but we are not ready for a volcanic eruption,” Bule said. “The government has to put a policy in place to cater for this in the future.”

Vanuatu’s Meteorology and Geohazards Department has previously warned that people nearest to the volcano face the biggest risk from airborne rocks and volcanic gas and that acid rain could damage crops across a broader area.

Vanuatu is home to about 280,000 people and is prone to natural disasters, with a half-dozen active volcanoes as well as regular cyclones and earthquakes. It sits on the Pacific’s “Ring of Fire,” the arc of seismic faults around the Pacific Ocean where earthquakes and volcanoes are common.

Mexico suffers volcano eruption same day as deadly quake


 As if the deadly earthquake in Mexico weren’t enough, a volcano erupted amid the violent tremors.

Popocatepetl — about 45 miles southeast of quake-ravaged Mexico City and some 30 miles from the temblor’s epicenter — belched ash and gas as the 7.1-magnitude earthquake rocked the country’s central region.

The county’s volcano-monitoring system registered one explosion and 256 “low-intensity exhalations” between Tuesday and Wednesday mornings but said none of the activity can be attributed to the earthquake, according to Mexico’s National Center for Prevention of Disasters.

A church in Atzitzihuacan at the foot of the mountain collapsed during the quake and eruption, killing 15 worshippers as they celebrated Mass inside.

Pope Francis said he was praying for victims in the majority-Catholic country.

“In this moment of pain, I want to express my closeness and prayers to all the beloved Mexican people,” he said.

The 17,700-foot Popocatepetl has been particularly active this summer and also blew its top amid the Aug. 21 solar eclipse.

Geothermal Heat Forms Giant Holes in Glacier (September 4, 2017)

Over 400 meter (1312 feet) wide holes [seen above in view from aircraft] have formed in Vatnajökull, Iceland's largest glacier. This is near the Bárðarbunga area, which had a volcanic eruption between 2014 and 2015.

According to geologist Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson, the entire Bárðabunga landscape changed after the eruption, with increased geothermal heat that has melted away a hundred meters of thick, glacial ice, forming these calderas.

In fact, this marks the first time in hundreds or even thousands of years that the ground beneath the glacier can be seen.

Magnús Tumi says the area needs to be carefully watched in order to watch out for any more calderas that might trigger a glacial outburst flood.



ZetaTalk Comment 4/17/2010: Iceland hosts many volcanoes as it sits on the boundary between the great Eurasian Plate and the great N American Plate, which are spreading apart. The tearing of the Atlantic Rift has been predicted by ourselves to occur long before the pole shift, and is already occurring.

2 Powerful Eruptions at Sheveluch and Bogoslov Volcanoes (Aug 8) 

A powerful eruption took place at Russia's Sheveluch volcano at 16:31 UTC on August 8, 2017. Ash cloud drifted SSE of the volcano. According to the Tokyo VAAC, ash cloud reached an altitude of 12.2 km (40 000 feet) above sea level.

At 21:20 UTC, the front of the 220 km (137 miles) long ash cloud was located about 360 km (224 miles) SSE of the volcano.

At 03:17 UTC on August 9, KVERT reported that explosive eruption of the volcano was ending, adding that a large ash cloud continues to drift from the volcano. The front was stretching out to the west and east. At 02:30 UTC, its western edge was about 490 km (305 miles) from the volcano, while the eastern edge was about 600 km (373 miles).

The explosive-extrusive eruption of the volcano continues, the agency said and warned that ash explosions up to 10 - 15 km (32 800 - 49 200 feet) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.

On August 7, another strong explosive eruption occurred at Bogoslov volcano, generating an ash plume that rose to estimated 32,000 ft (10 km) altitude.

The eruption began at about 18:00 UTC (10:00 AKDT local time) and was observed by a pilot. It lasted approximately 3 hours. The volcano's Aviation Color Code was again raised to RED.

Powerful Eruption at Sumatra's Sinabung Volcano (Aug 2) 

Mt Sinabung blasted volcanic ash as high as 4.2 kilometers (2.6 miles) on Wednesday, one of its biggest eruptions in the past several months of high activity.

Isya Nurrahmat Dana, an official at a volcano monitoring post in North Sumatra province, said at least 19 eruptions followed by lava flows were recorded by midday Wednesday.

Hot ash tumbled down the mountain's slopes as far as 4.5 kilometers (2.8 miles) east and southeast into the Labortus River, inside the already devastated and evacuated zone around Sinabung.

National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said thousands of people in 10 villages were directly affected by ash fall from the latest eruption.

He warned villagers to stay out of a danger zone that extends as far as 7 kilometers (4.4 miles) from the peak.

Posted on July 26, 2017

Currently there is a strong earthquake swarm on the Reykjanes peninsula. Largest earthquake so far was a magnitude 4,0 with second largest earthquake having magnitude of 3,8. This earthquake swarm is currently ongoing. Over 150 earthquakes have been detected so far (this number is going to get obsolete soon).

Update 1 at 00:04 – 27-July-2017

Over 300 earthquakes have happened so far on the Reykjanes peninsula. Largest earthquake so far had the magnitude of 3,8 and second largest had the magnitude of 3,3.

Glacier flood confirmed from Mýrdalsjökull glacier ICELND

July 28, 2017
It was confirmed at around 22:00 UTC that a small glacier flood has now started from Mýrdalsjökull glacier (Katla volcano). At the moment the glacier flood is small. It is unclear if this glacier flood is going to remain small and run it course as it is or if it is going to increase in next few hours.

Reports have been coming of strong sulphur smell in the area of Múlakvísl on Mýrdalssand area (desert area south of Mýrdalsjökull glacier).

Civil protection authority in Iceland have closed down few tourist roads and limited access to certain areas for time being due to this glacier flood. I strongly recommend that people follow those closers since change can happen in Katla volcano without warning and the closer people are to the volcano the less time they have to get away from it if an eruption starts.

Alaskan volcano erupts again, leading to aviation warning


 Spewed an ash cloud up to 30,000 feet

An Alaskan volcano that has erupted several times since last year spewed an ash cloud up to 30,000 feet, leading to an aviation warning.

The Bogoslof volcano erupted Saturday (July 8), sending ash over the Aleutians Islands, the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) said.

It "remains at a heightened state of unrest and in an unpredictable condition, and additional explosions producing high-altitude volcanic clouds could occur at any time," the observatory said.

The volcano sits under the flight path of many flights from Asia to North America and its ash cloud could adversely affect aircraft.

"Ash and aircraft do not mix, as volcanic ash is abrasive, melts at jet engine temperatures, and can cause engine failure," the United States Geological Survey says.

The aviation color code remains at red..."

Sileri crater at the Dieng Plateau volcano Indonesia eruption as a helicopter carrying eight people crashes during evacuations


  • Two dead and ten people injured.
  • Sileri is the most active and dangerous among some 10 craters at Dieng Plateau.
  • eruption occurred at around 11:30 a.m., when there were about 17 visitors around the crater.

A helicopter carrying eight people crashed Sunday while on the way to help with evacuations near a volcano that erupted on the main Indonesian island of Java.
Officials didn't know the fate of the people on board, but villagers said they found two bodies at the crash site.
The eruption of the volcano, located in a popular tourist area, injured at least 10 people.
The helicopter from the National Search and Rescue Agency was carrying four crewmen and four rescuers when it crashed near Candiroto village in Central Java province's Temanggung district, Heronimus Guru, the agency's deputy operations chief, told KompasTV.
Guru did not know the fates of those on board, but villagers told the TV station that they found the bodies of two people.

Earlier Sunday, Sileri Crater at Dieng Plateau spewed cold lava, mud and ash as high as 50 meters (164 feet) into the sky when it erupted, said National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.
He said the sudden eruption occurred at around 11:30 a.m., when there were about 17 visitors around the crater.
Ten people were injured and were treated at a hospital.
Soldiers and police officers were dispatched to the scene, while local residents and visitors were asked to evacuate the area in case of further eruptions, Nugroho said.
Sileri is the most active and dangerous among some 10 craters at Dieng Plateau.
Its most recent eruption was in 2009, when it unleashed volcanic materials up to 200 meters (656 feet) high and triggered the creation of three new craters.
Dieng Plateau, located in the Central Java district of Banjarnegara, is a popular tourist attraction because of its cool climate and ninth-century Hindu temples.
It sits about 2,000 meters (6,600 feet) above sea level.
Some 142 people were reportedly asphyxiated in 1979 when the volcano spewed gases.
