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

Indonesia's Mount Semeru volcano has erupted, sending ash billowing into the sky and sparking evacuations on the country's main island, Java.
Authorities raised the volcano's warning status to the highest level, meaning its activity had escalated.
No injuries have been reported but nearly 2,000 people were evacuated from the area around the volcano.
People have been urged to keep at least 8 km (5 miles) away, as "hot avalanches" of lava poured from Semeru.
The organization said a bridge being rebuilt after a previous eruption had been badly damaged.
At least six villages had been affected, it added.
Videos of the event showed the sky turning black as a massive plume of ash blocked the sunlight.
Japan issued a tsunami warning for its southernmost islands after the eruption, but meteorologists said no tidal changes had been observed.
Mount Semeru, in East Java province, began erupting at about 02:46 local time (19:46 GMT), authorities said.
Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire" where tectonic plates collide, causing frequent volcanic activity as well as earthquakes.
Semeru - also known as "The Great Mountain" - is the highest volcano in Java at 3,676m (12,060ft) and one of the most active. Its last erupted exactly one year ago, killing at least 50 people and leaving streets filled with mud and ash.
The eruption also follows a series of earthquakes on the west of Java island, located about 640 km (400 miles) east of Indonesia's capital Jakarta, including one last month that killed more than 300 people.
The ongoing highly elevated activity at the volcano resulted in a spectacular, billowing pyroclastic flow tumbling down the Sciara del Fuoco this morning at about 07:20 local time.
INGV volcanologists concluded that a part of the rim of the crater (likely North)had collapsed that culminated in hot rock falls traveling beyond the coastline above water for about several dozens-to-hundred meters. Ash plumes separating from the flow (so-called phoenix clouds) rose several hundred meters above the volcano. The pyroclastic flow triggered 2 cm high sea waves registered by the tsunami warning system.
The event has been associated with a new lava flow as well, emerging from a vent in the summit area and simultaneously descending with the pyroclastic density current and pouring into the sea.

Fuego Volcano Eruption 07/04/2022:
The Fuego Volcano increased its eruptive activity on the morning of Monday, July 4, and strong explosions, lava flow and pyroclastic flow are reported in the La Ceniza canyon, reported the National Institute of Seismology, Volcanology, Meteorology and Hydrology (Insivumeh).
In the Special Volcanological Bulletin BEFGO 56-2022, the Insivumeh reports an increase in the eruptive activity of the colossus.

A new eruptive fracture has opened in the upper part of Etna.
During this morning a new eruptive fracture has opened in the upper part of the Bove Valley of Etna, a particular completely uninhabited area of the volcanic building where most of the lava flow ends at taken by the volcano’s top craters. The new fracture opened at an altitude of about 2,800 feet and is fueling a small lava flow that is slowly expanding across the upper valley.
The opening of this new fracture came after yesterday the volcanic tremor levels suffered a significant decrease which was accompanied by the cessation of the Strombolian activity that was ongoing in the part and summit of the southeast crater from last May 12th, the day it was the effusive eruption has started, attracting many tourists and curious locals.

Dramatic official aerial maps showed the eruption cloud over Tonga after the Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha'apai volcanco erupted (pictured, satellite images of the volanic eruption in the Pacific Ocean on Saturday)
'A 1.2 metre tsunami wave has been observed at Nukualofa,' Australia's Bureau of Meteorology tweeted. The maximum tsunami wave recorded following Friday's explosion was 30 centimetres.
The Tonga Meteorological Services said the tsunami warning was in effect for all of Tonga.
The eruption was so intense it was heard as 'loud thunder sounds' in Fiji more than 500 miles away, officials in Suva said.
Authorities in Fiji also issued a warning, telling people to avoid the shoreline due to strong currents and dangerous waves.
Victorina Kioa of the Tonga Public Service Commission said Friday that people should 'keep away from areas of warning which are low-lying coastal areas, reefs and beaches.'
The head of Tonga Geological Services Taaniela Kula urged people to stay indoors, wear a mask if they were outside and cover rainwater reservoirs and rainwater harvesting systems.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre issued a 'tsunami advisory' for American Samoa, saying there was a threat of 'sea level fluctuations and strong ocean currents that could be a hazard along beaches.'

Earlier, the Matangi Tonga news site reported that scientists had observed massive explosions, thunder and lightning near the volcano after it started erupting Friday.
The site said satellite images showed a three-mile-wide plume of ash, steam and gas rising about 12 miles into the air.
More than 1,400 miles away in New Zealand, officials warned of storm surges from the eruption.
