"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

Peru Volcano Prompts Evacuation of 4,000 (Apr 17)

Peruvian authorities have ordered the evacuation of 4,000 people living near the Ubinas volcano which has been spouting ash clouds up to 2 miles (nearly 4 kilometers) high.

Reaching an estimated 14,750 feet into the atmosphere, an April 15 ash cloud was the latest in an ongoing series of eruptions from the volcano.

The Andina state news agency quotes Agriculture Minister Juan Benites as saying it will take three days to move the 4,000 residents of two southern districts and their 30,000 sheep, cows, horses, burros and other animals.

Peru's health ministry says ash has been falling from Ubinas since March 29.

State of alert for the Mayon volcano (Philippines)

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=it&tl=en&js=y&...

In the last several hours earthquakes are putting apprehension in the population living near the Mayon volcano. The visual observations conducted in the night were not able to detect any glow due to thick clouds that covered the summit of the mountain. Further observations say that the results on the geodetic deformation of the soil indicate variations deflation and a return to average values.

However, the data show that the inclination of building complsso is still swollen compared to last January 2012. Status therefore remains alert level 1, ie abnormal condition. Although this situation does not necessarily magmatic eruption imminent, local authorities are strongly advised to keep a minimum radius of 6 km from the danger zone. Near the volcano, in fact, may occur between taal-and-other-Philippine volcanoes-USGS I, landslides, avalanches, sudden puffs of ash or phreatic eruptions from the summit. In case of inclement weather, you need to pay attention to the fall of the Lahar by its steep slopes. The field measurements showed an increase in the temperature of the water contained in the lake summit (from 30.4 ° C to 31.0 ° C), a decrease in the water level (from 0.51 meters to 0.45 meters) and a decrease in PH (from 2.90 to 2.64). The carbon dioxide found in the Main Crater Lake increased to 675 tons per day compared to 500 tons per day recorded last January. The Mayon Volcano, also known as Mount Mayon, is an active stratovolcano located in the Province of Albay, in the Bicol Region, on the island of Luzon in the Philippines. Known as the cone "perfect" because of its almost perfectly conical shape, Mayon forms the northern border with the city of Legazpi. It rises to 2462 meters above the gulf of the same name and is the most active volcano in the Philippines. Eruptions are mainly from the central conduit and in the past have produced lava flows at a great distance. Continue...

Five Volcanoes Erupting at Once [Earth Observatory; 14 April, 2014]

Remote. Cold. Rugged. Those three adjectives capture the essence of Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula. Another word—perhaps more applicable than anywhere else on Earth—is “fiery.”

Of the roughly 1,550 volcanoes that have erupted in the recent geologic past, 113 are found on Kamchatka. Forty Kamchatkan volcanoes are “active,” either erupting now or capable of erupting on short notice. The Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 captured activity at five of them during a single satellite pass on April 14, 2014.

From geographic north to south (and top to bottom on this page), the volcanoes are Shiveluch, Klyuchevskaya, Bezymianny, Kizimen, and Karymsky. The tallest of the group is Klyuchevskaya, a stratovolcano with a steep, symmetrical cone that reaches 4,750 meters (15,580 feet) above sea level. The most active is Karymsky, a 1,536-meter (5,039-foot) peak that has erupted regularly since 1996.

Plate tectonics is responsible for the many volcanoes on Kamchatka Peninsula. The Pacific Plate is slowly colliding with and sliding beneath the Okhotsk Plate. As rock from the Pacific Plate descends and encounters higher pressures and temperatures, it melts into magma. Over time, magma accumulates and migrates up toward the surface, causing volcanic eruptions.

Long before the discovery of plate tectonics, Kamchatka’s many volcanoes and eruptions were woven into a rich tapestry of myths and creation stories. According to Koryak folklore, the raven-like deity Kutkh created Kamchatka by dropping a giant feather on the Pacific Ocean. Each of the first generation of men became one of Kamchatka’s mountains at death; many of these mountains became volcanic because the men’s hearts burned so passionately for a beautiful woman that Kutkh had also created near the beginning of time.

In 2013, another NASA satellite collected imagery of Shiveluch, Bezymianny, Tolbachik, and Kizimen.

Severe Explosion in Volcano Tungurahua in Ecuador (Apr 14)

Ecuador's Tungurahua volcano spewed 5-km column of ash after a loud explosion due to an increase in its eruptive activity.

The blast occurred at 8:30 p.m. local time Monday (1330 GMT).

In addition, two millimeters of fine gravel in diameter was reported falling in the town of Pillate, about seven km west of the volcano, it added.

The explosion was considered among the strongest in the current eruption process and broke glass windows in the towns of Cusua, Chacauco, Cotaló and Pelileo.

Military and police personnel are preparing for an evacuation of the community.

Ecuador's Tungurahua volcano erupts - April 4

Eruption fears: The Tungurahua volcano spews a column of ash.

A volcano in central Ecuador has spewed up a column of hot ash and smoke 10 kilometres high.

The volcano entered a new vigorous eruptive phase yesterday evening. A moderately strong vulcanian explosion occurred at 18:10 (local time) and produced an eruption column rising several kilometers as well as small pyroclastic flows on the cone.

Ash / lapilli fall with 1-3 cm diameter clasts occurred in the areas of Bilbao, Choglontus, Chacauco and Cusúa.
The explosion, which likely cleared the conduit from a solid plug was followed by frequent, smaller explosions accompanied by a constant tremor signal of high energy.

When the volcano was not hidden in clouds, the expulsion of incandescent blocks that rolled down the upper flanks, and steam-gas-ash emissions could be observed. Individual stronger explosions also occurred intermittently, some of which rattled the windows and doors of the Tungurahua Volcano Observatory (OVT), located 14 Km northwest.

Activity has been building at the Tungurahua volcano 130 kilometres south of the capital Quito since early February.

On Friday (Saturday Australian time), experts reported a loud explosion that lasted for five minutes and an expulsion of ash.

Peru's Ubinas Volcano Erupts, Forces Evacuations (Mar 30)
A volcano in Peru that has not blown its top in four decades spewed more ash skyward on Tuesday, after authorities evacuated villagers to avoid Ubinas's wrath.

The volcano in southwestern Peru blasted back to life causing about 60 villagers from Querapi, near its base, to be relocated Saturday, Ubinas town mayor Pascual Coaquira said.

The director of the Geophysical Institute of Arequipa, Orlando Macedo said that the eruption took place at 7:42 a.m. and gave off ash for one thousand meters.

The volcano, in the south of Peru became active in September of last year, after having been dormant for several years. Nearby village, Querapi was set to be evacuated. The village is located just five kilometers from the volcano.

Macedo said that the villagers were affected by the ash that was emitted from the eruption.

“The wind has blown towards the south, to the residents of Querapi, four kilometers from the crater, and the district of Ubinas, located at six kilometers,” said Macedo.

The 20 families that lived in Querapi were evacuated to the locality of Ubinas last Saturday. They are waiting for the permanent removal of their village to Pampas de Hawái.

"We are readying a shelter for refugees from the blasts," he added Tuesday, noting that the whole Moquegua region was on alert.

"The volcano has been emitting a lot of ash all day, the people in the town (of Ubinas) are having some problems breathing, the mayor added. They have been given masks, he said.

Peru's geological and mining agency (Ingemmet) said lava had been building up in recent weeks, and warned locals they should prepare for the possibility of more evacuations.

In the broader Moquegua area plus Arequipa and Tacna, there are about 40 volcanoes, most dormant.

During the morning, a pilot from a commercial flight reported a steam plume rising out of the Atlantic Ocean about 150 miles off coast of southwest Ireland. A team from the Irish Coastguard was alerted and set out to sea from Dingle to conduct an investigation. When they got to the source of the plume, they observed surtseyan eruptions coming out from the sea. It was thought that what is now the Republic of Ireland had drifted away from the volcanically active zone of the mid-Atlantic Ridge millions of years ago, but this does not seem to be the case.

Etna (Sicily, Italy): During the night, the lava effusion and persistent mild explosive activity from the New SE crater ceased, after being nearly continuously active for over two months. If this is a true end or only a short pause to the latest eruptive phase which on 22 January remains to be seen. The tremor fell back to low levels in correspondence.

Karkar (Northeast of New Guinea): Several ash plumes at estimated altitude of 8,000 ft (2.4 km) were spotted during the past 2 days. This suggests a new eruptive phase could have started at the remote volcano.

Batu Tara (Sunda Islands, Indonesia): After a relatively long time with no spotted ash clouds, an ash plume was seen yesterday again on satellite imagery (VAAC Darwin).
The remote volcano in the Fores Sea has been site of continuing strombolian activity since at least 2006. Some of the eruptions are strong enough to leave ash plumes that can be seen on satellite images.

Merapi (Central Java, Indonesia): A possibly strong eruption was reported from the volcano this afternoon (13:55 GMT). Satellite data showed an ash and SO2 plume drifting SW at estimated 32,000 ft (9 km) (VAAC Darwin). The plume is quickly dissipating, suggesting that the eruption was an isolated (possibly phreatic) explosion. No other details are at the moment available.

Marapi (Western Sumatra, Indonesia): The volcano erupted again yesterday afternoon at 16:15 local time, the volcano observatory post reported. It appears it was one of the largest explosions during the volcano's current phase of activity. Although the eruption was itself not visible due to cloud cover, the seismic signal showed a strong explosion that lasted 38 seconds and relatively "thick" ash fall occurred shortly afterwards in Batipuh and Tanahdatar districts until 17:45.

Dukono (Halmahera): Activity at the volcano continues to be intense. An ash plume was reported extending 80 nautical miles to the west at 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude this morning (VAAC Darwin).

Ubinas (Peru): The volcano's new lava dome continues to grow slowly within the crater. New field observations published yesterday in a detailed report showed that the lava dome is now approx. 120 m in diameter and has completely filled the inner pit left by the explosive activity in 2006 (as of 19 March). Visible glow (even in daylight) indicates very high temperatures.
No explosions have occurred since the vent-clearing explosion on 14 Feb, but the volcano emits a significant plume of steam, SO2 gas and sometimes dilute ash. On 21 and 23 March, the steam-gas-ash plume rose 1800 m above the crater. On 25 March, light ash falls were reported in the towns of Querapi and Ubinas, as well as strong rumbling noises in distances up to 6 km SE. Seismicity remains above background with frequent earthquake swarms related to internal fluid movements.
