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

New Eruption at Poas Volcano Reported This Tuesday Morning

 June 6, 2017,  http://news.co.cr/new-eruption-poas-volcano-reported-tuesday-mornin...

 The National University’s Volcanology and Seismology Research Institute (OVSICORI) reported an eruption that  reached 1,000 meters above the crater, 3,708 meters above sea level (12.162,24 ft.), began at 8:50 a.m. local time  this Tuesday and was still in progress at 10:05 a.m.

This past Friday, June 2 the Poás Volcano registered constant activity 

with small size eruptions and red columns of gases and ash, on Saturday some activity continued but Sunday and Monday there were no new eruptions although there was an intense column of steam and gases emanating from the crater.

The Poás Volcano has experienced several changes of its structure since the eruptions began back in April, with new cones forming, the dome almost completely destroyed, 

and the water of the lake drying fast, new small fumaroles have also appeared and incandescent materials can be seen in certain areas at night time.

As of now there have not been reports of ash fall in the nearby communities; however the wind direction is to the west which means it could reach the community of Bajos del Toro.

Dr. Maarten de Moor from OVSICORI is in the area and was able to capture the image included with this article.

Indonesia: Marapi volcano in West Sumatra erupts


 Hanoi (VNA) – Marapi volcano in West Sumatra, Indonesia erupted on June 4, spewing clouds of volcanic ash over the  region of Tanah Datar in Sumatran province.

 According to the Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Centre (PVMBG), Marapi volcano erupted twice at 10:01 am and 10:22 am (local time).

The first eruption generated a 300-metre high plume of smoke from the peak, while the second one spewed ash much higher at around 700 metres from the mountain top.

The PVMBG set up an exclusion zone with the three-kilometer radius from the mountain summit, and called local residents to abide by instructions as well as notices of the centre.

The centre said it will deliver an early warning about whether the volcano continues to pose danger or not.

Meanwhile, head of Tanah Datar district Irdiansyah Tarmizi said that the volcanic ash of Marapi volcano has blanketed four sub-districts namely Batipuh, Pariangan, Sungai Tarab and Salimpaung.

However, the daily activities of local people are not affected much by the eruption, he said.-VNA


Sakurajima volcano in SW Japan erupts


 TOKYO, June 6 (Xinhua) -- Mount Sakurajima, a volcano in Kagoshima Prefecture in southwestern Japan, erupted on  Tuesday morning, the weather agency here said.
 According to the agency, the eruption occurred at 7:56 a.m. local time and marked the second significant event there in  recent weeks.

Ash and smoke was recorded as billowing as high as 3,200 meters into the sky, the weather agency said, and was ejected from the 1,117-meter volcano's Showa crater.
The agency warned that similar eruptions could occur, although there have been no immediate reports of injury or damage as a result of the latest eruption.

The last major eruption occurred at the mountain on May 29 this year and the volcano is under Level 3, orange alert by the Japan Meteorological Agency, signifying the volcano is active and should not be approached.
In September, 2016, a team of experts from Bristol University and the Sakurajima Volcano Research Centre in Japan concluded after studies that the volcano could have a major eruption within the next 30 years.

Bogoslof RED/WARNING Alerts: Significant explosive eruption at Bogoslof volcano

The strong explosive eruption occurred at 14:16 AKDT (22:16 UTC) on May 28, 2017 and ended after about 50 minutes.

Satellite images and pilot reports indicate that the cloud from today’s eruption reached at least 35,000 ft, and possibly as high as 45,000 ft asl.

The Aviation Color Code remains at RED and the Alert Level remains at WARNING, reports AVO .

An observer on Unalaska Island reported seeing a large white-gray mushroom cloud form over Bogoslof, with ash fall out to the west. Winds in the area are currently to the northwest.

Since the explosion, seismicity and infrasound as detected on neighboring islands is quiet, no lightning has been detected, and satellite images show no additional emission from the volcano.

The National Weather Service Alaska Aviation Weather Unit has issued a SIGMET for possible ash to 50,000 ft asl.

The NWS has a Marine Weather Statement for trace or dusting of ash over coastal waters near the island.


Bogoslof volcano remains at a heightened state of unrest and in an unpredictable condition. Additional explosions

producing high-altitude volcanic clouds can occur at any time. Low-level explosive activity that is below our

ability to detect in our data sources may be occurring. These low-level explosions could pose a hazard in the

immediate vicinity of the volcano.

CARIBBEAN: Warnings issued as volcano near Grenada becomes restless

Volcano Kick ’em Jenny

April 30, 2017


CMC – The National Disaster Management Agency is monitoring an increase in activities taking place at Kick ’em Jenny, the region’s only submarine volcano located between Grenada and the Grenadine island of Carriacou.
In a release early Sunday, the disaster agency said it has been advised of the increase in activity by the Seismic Research Centre (SRC) of the University of the West Indies (UWI).
“The UWI/SRC recorded a high amplitude signal, lasting about 25 seconds, on one of the Grenada stations. The signal was also recorded on a station in Montserrat. This signal follows an increase in the number of background events associated with the Kick-’em-Jenny volcano,” said the release which confirmed that persons in the St Patrick’s area have reported feeling tremors.”
As a result, the alert level is now on yellow and sea users and ships have been warned to stay away from vicinity of the submarine volcano.

“In light of the ongoing we are advising all sea users that the 5km (3.1 miles) exclusion zone of Kick ’em Jenny be strictly observed. The SRC has advised that heightened alert is necessary for the exclusion zone,” the release added.
A yellow alert means the volcano is restless; seismicity and/or fumarolic activity are above the historical level or other unusual activity has been observed or can be expected without warning.

Japan's Mt Sakurajima Erupts 5 Times Covering Nearby Cities with Ash (May 2)

Mount Sakurajima blew its top again at 3:20 a.m. on May 2 in spectacular fashion, spewing a massive column of smoke rising 4,000 meters from the crater.

Locals have spoken of having difficulty breathing after bright flashes and billowing smoke blasted from the volcano in at least five separate eruptions.

Residents in the town of Kagoshima, found on the southern island of Kyushu and around 4km away from the volcano, awoke to find their homes littered with ash.

One person living nearby posted a picture of his car covered in ash, with the caption: “Everything in my town is being covered with volcanic ash from Sakurajima. I can't breathe!!”

It is thought there are no injuries or casualties resulting from the violent eruptions but authorities have recommended that people in Kagoshima wear face masks until the ash stops falling on the region.

Continuous Activity at Costa Rica's Poás Volcano Culminates with Powerful Explosion (Apr 22)

Video 1

Video 2

48 hours of continuous eruptive activity at Poás Volcano were marked on Saturday at 10:12 p.m. with a massive explosion that launched glowing bombs over the entire sector of the active crater.

In what appear to be the strongest eruption in the current ongoing crisis thus far, the presence of large amounts of incandescent material suggests that magma continues to rise towards the surface.

People in nearby towns such as Alajuela reported strong sulfur smells and ash falls that caused headaches, burning eyes, and respiration irritation.

Earlier on the same day, at 4:03 p.m. local time, another explosion occurred at Poás, but the height of the eruption column was not observed due to bad visibility.

The peak of activity began on April 20 at 10 p.m. with an increase in the evaporation and emission of gases in the area where the volcanic dome used to be.

The emission of solid material and the eruptions increased on April 21 and during the night hours the volcano expelled ash aside from the vapors as well as rocks at high temperature. 

The incandescent material has temperatures of more than 800 degrees Celsius (1472 Fahrenheit), when they fall again they form a cone that has been changing its shape. The volcano also emits a loud sound similar to that of a plane turbine.

Experts estimate that the temperature of the Laguna Caliente lake could be near the 80 degrees Celsius at this point.

Residents of San José, Alajuela, Heredia and Cartago are breathing high levels of sulfur, carbon dioxide and occasionally ash particles, that can have a negative effect on health.

The air quality monitoring station located in Hatillo, registered in average a concentration of carbon dioxide of 81 parts per billion (ppb), with a maximum peak of 99.1 ppb, which exceeds the WHO limits of 75 ppb.

According to Jorge Herrera, coordinator of the environmental laboratory of the National University, the emissions of gas by the Poás Volcano is affecting the quality of the air in the metropolitan area which was already compromised with the eruptions of the Turrialba Volcano.

The high levels of sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide measured near the crater of the volcano are interpreted by scientists as a sign of fresh magma near the surface.

The combination of these gases in the air and heavy rains like the ones experienced in the last few days create what is known as acid rain, which causes damage in crops, vegetation, and even metallic structures.

Costa Rica's Poás Volcano Erupting (Apr 14)

Just two days after suddenly erupting with enough force to leave a crack in the dome of its crater, Costa Rica's Poás volcano on Friday spewed a plume of smoke and ash more than three kilometers into the air.

The strong explosion was preceded by several smaller and moderately sized explosions from around 6 am; the most significant one occurred at 6:59, 7:18, 7:39 and 7:57 local time.

The plume, visible from different points in the country, went higher than three kilometers.

Poás is located just 40 kilometers north of the capital San Jose, in Alajuela province.

The country's Turrialba Volcano, located in the east, is usually the one making headlines for sending plumes of ash and smoke as high as 4,000 meters into the sky.
