"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

Sumatra's Sinabung Volcano Unleashes Pyroclastic Flow (Jul 27)

Heightened activity remains essentially unchanged at the volcano.

Effusion of viscous lava continues to feed the lava dome with two active lobes on the SE and E upper flanks.

At 12:22 local time today, a part of the eastern lobe collapsed into a pyroclastic flow that traveled approx. 2.5 km towards the outskirts of the already evacuated and destroyed villages of Bekerah and Simacem.

Undersea Volcano Called Kick 'Em Jenny Rumbling off Grenada

An active underwater volcano off Grenada's northern coast called Kick 'em Jenny was rumbling Thursday and regional disaster authorities were put on alert, though they said it posed no threat of triggering a destructive tsunami.

Since its discovery in the 1930s, Kick 'em Jenny has erupted beneath the surface of the Caribbean Sea at least 12 times, most recently in 2001. The volcano, which rises 1,300 meters (4,265 feet) above the seafloor on a steep slope of the Lesser Antilles ridge, hasn't caused any known deaths or injuries.

The Seismic Research Center at the University of the West Indies said seismic activity had increased in the volcano, which sits 8 kilometers (5 miles) north of Grenada. Recreational divers have reported seeing some "degassing" on the seafloor off Grenada's west coast as gas-rich magma bubbles.

Center researchers put the alert level at "orange," which means an eruption could take place within 24 hours. An eruption would stir up high waves and heat surrounding waters to boiling temperatures. Scientists say the volcano can also shoot hot rocks up through the water column.

Under the alert, all boats must stay at least 5 kilometers (3 miles) from the volcano. Kick 'em Jenny poses the greatest threat to mariners since the gases it releases can lower the density of water so significantly vessels can lose buoyancy and sink.

Acting Prime Minister Elvin Nimrod said Kick 'em Jenny poses "no significant threat" to Grenada or other coastal communities on nearby islands for now.

"There is no need to move people away from coastlines," he told reporters.

People were advised to go about their lives normally. But some were jittery as seismic activity ramped up, knocking out Internet service.

"People are just wondering what's next," said Kendel Mark, a resident of the outlying island of Carriacou.

In a 1939 eruption, Kick 'em Jenny shot a cloud of ash 270 meters (900 feet) above the sea surface. Its eruptions since then have been weaker.


Associated Press writer Linda Straker reported this story in St. George's, Grenada, and David McFadden reported from Kingston, Jamaica.

Five Volcanoes Erupt In Indonesia, Blanketing Skies In Ash (Jul 22)

Major eruptions at five volcanoes shrouded the skies over the Indonesian archipelago Wednesday, forcing three airports to close.

Mount Raung on Java island blasted ash and debris up to 2,000 meters (6,560 feet) into the air after rumbling for several weeks.

Ash erupted also from Gamalama and Dukono mountains on the Moluccas islands chain, Sinabung volcano on Sumatra island and Mount Karangetang on Siau island, darkening the skies.

A total of more than 13,000 people have been evacuated due to the volcanic eruptions since last month, mostly from around the slopes of Sinabung in Tanah Karo District, added Surono.

Transport Ministry spokesman Julius Adravida Barata said Jember and Banyuwangi airports closed late Tuesday and Bali's international airport was closed for several hours on Wednesday, disrupting flights. Media reports said 37 flights to and from Bali's Ngurah Rai airport were cancelled.

An eruption of Raung early this month sparked chaos as the airport in the tourist hotspot of Bali and four other airports in the region were shutdown, stranding thousands of holiday-goers.

Last week, the ministry closed Sultan Babullah airport in North Maluku's Ternate town after eruptions at Gamalama and Dukono sent volcanic ash up to 1,700 meters (5,570 feet) into the sky.

Explosion Shakes Aleutians’ Cleveland Volcano

By  | July 21, 2015

An explosion shook Cleveland Volcano in the east-central Aleutian Islands at 8:17 local time Tuesday morning.

It’s the volcano’s first explosion since November.

Kristi Wallace with the Alaska Volcano Observatory in Anchorage called it “a small, discrete, short-duration event.”

“We aren’t certain whether or not a significant ash cloud was produced, likely not, mostly because it was short duration,” she said.

Clouds blocked the satellite view of the volcano Tuesday morning, and scientists haven’t received any reports from local pilots yet.

Grant Aviation said its flights in the area have been grounded because of fog.

The National Weather Service has put out an alert on the possibility of an ash cloud heading to the north and east, likely below 20,000 feet altitude.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory has raised the alert level for the volcano from yellow to orange, meaning an eruption is underway with only minor ash emissions.

“This is pretty common for this volcano,” Wallace said. “Typically, you have one explosion and maybe nothing for months. Sometimes we have maybe a couple over a week-long period. So we’ll just wait and see.”

Since its last major eruption in 2001, Cleveland Volcano has been active occasionally, with small lava flows and ash clouds generally staying below 20,000 feet. Eruptions in 2001 sent ash clouds, which can threaten airplanes that encounter them, as high as 39,000 feet above sea level.

Cleveland Volcano is on uninhabited Chuginadak Island, about 45 miles west of the village of Nikolski, 150 miles southwest of Unalaska and 940 miles southwest of Anchorage.

The volcanic cone towers 5,676 feet above the Bering Sea.

Another Indonesian Volcano Shuts Down Airport (Jul 16)

Sultan Babullah airport in Ternate, North Maluku was shut down this morning following the eruption of nearby Mount Gamalama.

“It was shut down at 10 a.m. local time after Mt. Gamalama erupted,” Transportation Ministry spokesman JA Barata said as quoted by tribunnews.com.

Barata said he did not know when the airport would be reopened, as the authorities were still waiting for updates on weather conditions in the area.

Mt. Gamalama erupted at 9:58 a.m. local time, spewing dark clouds of volcanic ash around 1,500 meters into the sky.

The volcano had shown an increase in activity since Wednesday, including volcanic tremors reaching 90 times.

Mt. Gamalama’s last eruption was in December 2015. The eruption disrupted economic activities in Ternate and forced air authorities to shut the airport for two weeks because of the thick volcanic ash.

Ash from Raung Volcano Continues to Shut Down Indonesian Airports (Jul 16)

Ash spewing from an erupting volcano closed the airport serving Indonesia's second-biggest city on Thursday as millions of people were travelling across the archipelago ahead of the Muslim holiday of Eid.

The shutdown of the international airport serving Surabaya, on the main island of Java, came days after the airport on the nearby holiday island of Bali was closed by ash from the same volcano, stranding thousands of holidaymakers.

Authorities ordered the closure of Juanda Airport near Surabaya between 1:30pm and 8:30pm (9.30pm Singapore time) due to increased activity from Mount Raung, which has been erupting violently in recent weeks, airport spokesman Liza Anindya told AFP. "The concern is that the ash might affect flights," she said.

The closure came during peak holiday season in Indonesia, when people in the world's most populous Muslim-majority country flood out of cities and head to their home towns and villages to spend Eid with their families.

Authorities raised the alert status of Mount Raung, about 180 kilometres west of Surabaya, to the second-highest level at the end of last month as the volcano began emitting clouds of hot ash and lava.

The airport on Bali, a top holiday destination that attracts millions of foreign visitors each year, was closed twice last week during peak season - with the longest shutdown lasting two days - due to the ash.

Thousands of tourists were left stranded at the island's Ngurah Rai airport and almost 900 flights were cancelled or delayed, according to airport officials.

Disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said that Mount Raung was hurling thick smoke up to 2,000 metres (6,500 feet) into the air on Thursday. No evacuations of nearby residents were necessary at the moment, he added.

4 Volcanoes Ablaze in Mexico, Chile, Indonesia and Sumatra (Jul 12)
Volcanoes are erupting around the globe this weekend, causing flight cancellations in southeast Asia and evacuations in Mexico.  

Hundreds of people have been forced to flee from their villages located at the foot of the Colima Volcano in western Mexico's Colima State, following an eruption this weekend which saw the active mountain spew ash and fire.

The volcano, also known as the Volcano of Fire, also forced a local airport to close as authorities have sealed off a 7.5 mile area amid fears an even bigger eruption may follow.

In Chile, the Villarrica Volcano, around 460 miles south of the capital Santiago, has been erupting overnight.

The Villarrica, located near the popular tourist resort of Pucon is among the most active in South America.

In Bali, Indonesia a volcano eruption on the neighbouring island of Java has forced one of Indonesia's busiest airports to close for the second time in just a few days.

Mount Raung on Indonesia's main island of Java has been erupting for weeks, and on Thursday a cloud of drifting ash forced the closure of Bali airport during peak holiday season, and four others.

The airport on the resort island, a top holiday destination that attracts millions of foreign tourists every year, reopened two days later as the ash drifted away, allowing some passengers to board flights home and others to arrive.

However the cloud returned Sunday morning, forcing authorities to shut the airport again. But the new closure lasted just a few hours and the airport was reopened in the afternoon as the ash shifted, the government said.

'Full, normal operations have resumed, however planes are to fly in and out from a westerly direction to avoid the ash,' transport ministry spokesman J. A. Barata told AFP.

Indonesian government vulcanologist Gede Suantika said that Mount Raung continued to erupt Sunday, spewing ash up to 3,200 feet into the air, and the wind had in the morning pushed the cloud of dust towards Bali, some 90 miles away.

Authorities raised the alert status of Mount Raung, a 3,300-metre volcano, late last month to the second highest level after it began to spew lava and ash high into the air.

Also in Indonesia, Mount Sinabung in Sumatra, has been erupting for two months, forcing the evacuation of more than 10,000 people.

Mexico's Colima Volcano in 'Constant State of Activity' (Jul 10)

Colima volcano in western Mexico has erupted again, sending ash more than four miles (6.4km) into the air and lava down the peak.

Colima is now in a constant state of activity, announced the director of Mexico''s civil protection agency Luis Felipe Puente.

According to Puente, the volcano spewed ash and gas into the sky, reaching heights of around 7 kilometers.

People were advised by Puente to recognize a 5-kilometer perimeter around the peak and to avoid activities in this place.

The authorities of Colima and Jalisco in western Mexico, activated the preventive protocols and remain on alert, due to the volcano's massive eruption.

Eruption of Indonesia's Raung Volcano Causes Travel Chaos (Jul 10)

Ash spewing from a volcano on Indonesia's main island of Java sparked chaos for holidaymakers as airports closed and international airlines cancelled flights to tourist hotspot Bali, stranding thousands.

Ash emissions have been intense enough to produce a plume that rose to 17,000 ft (5 km) altitude and drifted more than 150 km to the SE. Five regional airports including Denpasar (DPS) on Bali have been closed.

Mount Raung in East Java province, about 150 kilometres from Bali's international airport, has been rumbling for several weeks. The level of activity increased in the past week and on Friday it blasted ash and debris 3,800 metres into the air.

Government volcanologist Gede Suantika said the eruption forced authorities to close five airports due to the risks posed by volcanic ash, though two airports on Lombok island reopened Friday afternoon. The Transport Ministry told airlines to avoid routes near the mountain. It said a decision about reopening other airports would be made later Friday.

Suantika said lava and ash fall from the 3,332-metre-high mountain on Indonesia's most densely populated island also caused the government to urge people to stay away from a three-kilometre (two-mile) -high danger zone around the volcano.

Evacuation of residents living near the volcano is still considered unnecessary, but authorities are urging people to wear masks.

"Ash can clog engines and harm other parts of the aircraft," said Transport Ministry spokesman Julius Adravida Barata.

Airports on the islands of Bali and Lombok as well as airports at Banyuwangi and Jember in East Java were closed late Thursday. Barata said thousands of travellers were stranded.

Flights within Indonesia were already overbooked as tens of millions of the country's Muslims pour out of major cities to return to their villages during an annual mass exodus to celebrate the end of the Islamic holy month.

The volcano has proven particularly problematic for Australians, who flock to Bali during Australia's school holidays.

Dozens of flights between Australia and Bali's Ngurah Rai airport by Australian carriers Jetstar and Virgin Australia have been cancelled over the past week, with the airlines citing safety concerns.

At Bali's international airport, many travellers arrived not knowing about the eruption and flight cancellations. The airport blocked access to ticket counters, adding to the confusion.

Some tourists slept on benches or stood at flight information boards filled with "postponed" and "delayed" notifications. Others complained of a lack of information about their delayed flights.

"The airline can't tell us if we're going to be here tonight or fly tomorrow or the next day," said Charmaine Scott, an Australian holidaymaker.

"This is really difficult for us. We have to basically find some way to stay."

Raung is among about 130 active volcanoes in Indonesia. The archipelago is prone to volcanic eruptions and earthquakes because of its location on the Pacific "Ring of Fire," a series of fault lines stretching from the Western Hemisphere through Japan and Southeast Asia.

Another Indonesian volcano, Mount Sinabung in Sumatra, has been erupting for two months, forcing the evacuation of more than 10,000 people.
