The Fuego Volcano, seen from Alotenango municipality, Sacatepequez departament, about 65 km southwest of Guatemala City, erupts on July 1, 2015. The volcano spewed lava and columns of ash into the air and authorities have raised the alert level in the area to orange.

Guatemalan authorities issued a danger warning Wednesday in response to intensifying activity in the country’s Fuego Volcano.

The volcano, 50 kilometers (30 miles) southeast of Guatemala City, was belching “fiery clouds” over the course of the day, said David de León, a spokesman for the government’s disaster response office.

The danger warning issued by the government was one step short of a declaration of emergency requiring evacuation of the communities around the volcano.

He said the mountain has been shaken by explosions that have rattled windows and rooftops and spewed columns of ash to some 5,000 meters (15,000 feet) above sea level.

Guatemala’s civil aviation authority was advised to take precautionary measures.

In February, a strong eruption forced authorities to close the international airport because of the falling ash.

Fear of Volcano eruption in Ukhrul, India


Fear of Volcano eruption in Ukhrul

SHITRU: A continuous gush of smoke and ashes from a swamp at Old Wahong village, Ukhrul has left villagers fearing natural calamity in the form of volcanic eruption any time at Shitru area.

According to the villagers, smoke radius of about 2 feet along with ashes have been gushing out from the earth’s surface at Shitru, a swampy area at Old Wahong village, since the last two weeks. Villagers and onlookers are expecting a volcanic eruption at the area in a short time. Any form of materials doused inside the earth gets easily heated producing more and more smoke.

Even the ashes released from the area are heated, village authority member Kapangkhui said. Continuous ejection of smoke and ashes has turned out to be a mystery to the villagers. However, with majority of the villagers preoccupied with cultivation of seasonal crops, and coupled with incessant rainfall, they are yet to inform State authorities about the mysterious phenomenon till date.

Yet, they are clueless and at the same time quite apprehensive in case the smokes and ashes turn out to be a prelude to a volcanic eruption. Shitru is just a half kilometre away from the residential area of the village.

Because of the proximity, major destruction could be faced in case of eruption, Kapangkhui stated. It may be mentioned that in 2013, a mud volcano erupted at the neighbouring village of New Tusom due to the shifting of tectonic plates of India and Myanmar. (Source)

Lake Toba Supervolcano Coming Alive in Malaysia


Thanks for the heads up, C.

This is serious—and right after the eruption of Sinabung. If the floor of my house suddenly got hot, I’d be outta there on the double.

Love and energetic support to Gaia and the people in these areas of upheaval.

If you notice the map above, Yellowstone is there, and as Dani from Removing the Shackles/Transpicious News Radio Show said, and I suggested as well, what the military may be gearing up for could be related to expected activity based on seismic and volcanic activity in other supervolcanoes—whether or not we’re being told this.

I maintain that we are being “managed”; that we are only told what higher powers deem we are entitled to know, either because of their secretive agenda, or because the Galactics are not allowed to interfere any more than absolutely necessary in our destiny.

What is going to happen on this planet is going to happen, and Gaia is going to do her thing and no one can stop the Earth changes completely—only mitigate them somewhat, but the clock is ticking and the star nations cannot prevent the changes from happening for much longer.

Tolec has told us that it appears with this uptick in activity of late that we are approaching the time when our major transformation will occur.

Volcanoes are believed to be connected beneath the surface, (see the article below) and Dutchsinse saw a steam plume in the San Francisco Peaks near Sunset Crater north of Flagstaff Arizona, which isn’t all that far from the Yellowstone area, and within the perimeter of the North American Craton.

Dani also recommended on her program this afternoon, to be prepared. Have a bug-in-bag and a bug-out-bag and important papers ready to grab. I’ll be talking about the ‘Transpicuous News’ show again in greater detail because Dani and Lisa discussed a lot of important topics of a time sensitive nature.  ~ BP


Lake Toba Supervolcano coming alive, hot steam, smelling like gas, ceramic floors houses feel hot!

June 10, 2015

Lake Toba Supervolcano is the largest volcanic lake in the world.

In addition, it is the site of a super volcanic eruption that occurred about 74,000 years ago, that caused a massive climate-changing event and killing most humans then alive and creating a population bottleneck in Central Eastern Africa and India that affected the genetic inheritance of all humans today.

This eruption is believed to have been the largest anywhere on Earth in the last 25 million years.

It seems the supervolcano awakens again. Villagers of Sitoluama, District Laguboti, Toba Samosir, North Sumatra in Indonesie are baffled as ceramic floors in their houses suddenly feel hot and besides their houses hot steam and smelling like gas coming out of the ground and it has not stopped yet.

Suspected hazardous vapors appear on Wednesday (27/5), exactly in the yard beside the house Purasa, located about ten kilometers from Balige, Toba Samosir regency capital. “Hot steam and smelling like gas coming out of the pores of the soil it is feared to threaten the safety of people around, so we report them to the government,” told one resident, Purasa Silalahi in Sitoluama, Saturday (30/5) to the Indonesian news site Merdeka.

Indeed, continued Purasa, since the last three weeks the temperature around our house is very hot, both day and night and the ceramic floor in our house feels hot.

Feeling suspicious of these conditions, he intends to dig the ground next to his house and turns as deep as 50 centimeters to see that hot smoke arose from the pit excavation. Due to fear of the conditions that made excavation, he immediately covered the hole again

Head of the Environment Agency Toba Samosir, Parulian Siregar said he receive continuing reports of citizens who discover the disturbing hot steam around their houses. “We are trying to coordinate with the Department of Mines and Energy of North Sumatra and stakeholders to determine the definite vapor source, including handling solutions,” said Parulian.”

Meanwhile, scientists, officials and residents are baffled. They don’t know where the steam comes from and if it is hazardous or not (translated).

Volcano Sinabung eruption, see video.

As of June 6th 2015 Mount Sinabung a stratovolcano located just only 25 miles from the Lake Toba supervolcano is erupting yet again prompting the Indonesian government to begin evacuating thousands of people while scientists expect that a massive eruption is imminent.

I’m not a scientist, but the fact that the Sinabung volcano is just located 25 miles from lake Toba supervolcano and the ongoing volcanic activity in the area, I can imagine that the magma chamber that sits beneath the Sinabung volcano is much larger than scientists think it is. Maybe so large that this chamber stretches as far as to the lake Toba supervolcano and eventually connected to a second chamber that sits beneath the Toba supervolcano? Could it be possible?

Taking into account the eruption that occurred about 74,000 years ago, we may wonder whether lake Toba supervolcano will erupt again.

Lake Toba Supervolcano:

Lake Toba (Indonesian: Danau Toba) is a lake and super volcano, 100 kilometers long and 30 kilometers wide, and 505 meters (1,666 ft) at its deepest point. Located in the middle of the northern part of the Indonesian island of Sumatra with a surface elevation of about 900 meters (2,953 ft).

To give an idea of its magnitude, consider that although the eruption took place in Indonesie, it deposited an ash layer approximately 15 centimeters thick over the entire Indian subcontinent; at one site in central India, the Toba ash layer today is up to 6 meters thick and parts of Malaysia were covered with 9 m of ash fall. In addition it has been calculated that 1010 metric tons of sulphuric acid was ejected into the atmosphere by the event, causing acid rain fallout.

The Toba caldera is the only super volcano in existence that can be described as Yellowstone’s “bigger” sister.

With 2,800 km3 of ejecta, it was an even greater eruption than the super eruption (2,500 km3) of 2.1 million years ago that created the Island Park Caldera in Idaho, USA.

The eruption was also about three times the size of the latest Yellowstone eruption of Lava Creek 630,000 years ago.

6/08/2015 — 85+ Volcanic Blasts in ONE DAY! Mt. Sakurajima in Japan — Major Activity

June 7, 2015 going into June 8, 2015:

Asia volcano alert … OVER 85 different blasts from Sakurajima Volcano in less than 1 days time (from 6am to 11pm). Also, notice the steady steaming off the back side of Sakurajima, which is Mount Ontake caldera (a different volcano in this complex)… Ontake caldera could also erupt in a large blast if things carry on this way.

Video sped up 64X speed to just get a rough count from 6am to dark.. 15 hours long sped up 64X reduces the length of this video to 14min 10sec.

No exaggeration to say these 85+ blasts (over the course of 1 day) is a huge number of volcanic events from a single volcano. Yes, Sakurajima is “active” , but this takes the cake by far when it comes to number of different blasts in one days time. I’ve seen this volcano send of 10 or 15 large blasts in one day before.. but in this case.. its OVER 85 different blasts since yesterday morning.

View the recorded real time streams from Sakurajima here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/ushine-2

Keep in mind the other West Pacific volcanic activity taking place South in Indonesia near Sinabung and Toba Supervolcano, also with the new eruption off the coast of Japan and Shindake volcano, the new Island forming at Nishinoshima Volcano, and the coming to life of the 800 year dormant Mount Hakone Volcano. This is a lot of volcanic activity to see in just a few weeks time.

The first blast produces a supersonic shock wave which is seen breaking the sound barrier as it also disturbs the clouds surrounding the volcano.

Seven large eruptions occurred in one days time in South Japan at Sakurajima Volcano on the same day a 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck off the Northeast coast of the mainland of the Island nation.

This comes on the heels of ELEVEN different eruptions in one days time just 4 days ago… see those 11 eruptions here:

Kilauea Summit Lava Lake Rises To Highest Point


APRIL 23, 2015: Summit lava lake, as seen on USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory webcam on Thursday.

HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK – The Kilauea volcano summit lava lake at Halema’uma’u has risen to its highest point since October 2012, and spatter from the lava was barely visible from Jaggar Museum this morning, according to the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

The rising lava lake coincides with an increased rate of summit inflation, which began with a steady climb on Tuesday evening and a steeper increase on Wednesday. As of this posting on Thurday, the inflation continues.

2015-04-23tilt

Inflation at the new rate continues this morning. In concert with the inflation, the level of the summit lava lake rose to what may be its highest level since October 2012. It was measured at 28 m (90 ft) below the rim of the Overlook crater yesterday evening, and had climbed a few more meters (yards) by this morning. Spattering at the south edge of the lake was barely visible from Jaggar Museum this morning. The high level also triggered a few small collapses from the Overlook crater walls over the past day. Along with the activity described above, seismicity has increased beneath Kilauea’s summit and upper East Rift Zone. Sulfur dioxide emission rates averaged 4000-7000 tonnes/day for the week ending April 14.USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory on April 23, 2015 at 7:22 a.m.

Excitement over the current volcanic activity will likely increase as word gets out about the rising lava lake, as it did in October 2012. The summit is located within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. This video is from that time, two and a half years ago.

The current summit eruption began in March 2008. This summary is posted on the USGS HVO website:

Summit The summit lava lake is within an elliptical crater (unofficially called the Overlook crater), which has dimensions of approximately 160 m (520 ft) by 210 m (690 ft), inset within the eastern portion of Halemaʻumaʻu Crater. The lake level has varied from about 25 m to more than 200 m (out of sight) below the floor of Halemaʻumaʻu Crater. The Overlook crater has been more-or-less continuously active since it opened during a small explosive event on March 19, 2008. The lake level responds to summit tilt changes with the lake generally receding during deflation and rising during inflation. Since 2013, the lava level has been typically between 30 m (100 ft) and 60 m (200 ft) below the floor of Halemaʻumaʻu Crater. Small collapses in the Overlook crater are common, and over time have resulted in a gradual enlargement of the Overlook crater. The ambient SO2 concentrations near the vent vary greatly, but are persistently higher than 10 ppm and frequently exceed 50 ppm (upper limit of detector) during moderate trade winds. The gas plume typically includes a small amount of ash-sized tephra (mostly fresh spatter bits and Pele’s hair from the circulating lava lake). The heaviest pieces are deposited onto nearby surfaces while the finer bits can be carried several kilometers before dropping out of the plume.

2/12/2015 — HUGE Eruption in South Japan — Multiple Blasts of Lava over hours


February 12, 2015 … The largest eruption can be seen in this video at about 8min. The eruption covers the entire mountain with lava within 20 seconds or less.

Major Pacific seismic movement is underway.. as evidenced by the other volcanic eruptions occurring around the Pacific at the moment, such as Colima + Popo volcanoes in Mexico giving off multiple blasts, and Fuego volcano in Guatemala showing serious movement. Add in the borderline 7.0M earthquake which just struck Chile / Argentina, and the dormant volcanoes showing movement in the United States.

Now (Feb 12) a series of large blasts of lava has occurred at Sakurajima Volcano in South Japan (yet again).

Compared to any of the previous blasts of lava, this newest round is much larger. See the previous blast from February 7th here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ko96…

The previous large eruption began with a multiple day steaming event, immediately followed by a large blast of lava on January 25th 2015 (seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEMPS… ).

This ongoing active eruption began in earnest after the blast(s), producing an over 3 hour eruption on January 28th 2015 (seen the timelapse of the previous large eruption here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmMbx…

The previous eruptions ash cloud extended multiple kilometers in the atmosphere, and also spread multiple KM down wind from the eruption location.

The previous eruption ash cloud actually reached the West Coast of the United States, hitting Oregon and Washington state with a thin layer of ash mixed with the rain.

The ash laden rainfall on the West coast made national news..

http://www.cnn.com/2015/02/07/us/nort…

EVERYONE still guessing where the ash came from.. now they’re saying Shivulech Volcano in Russia…


See the eruption (and record it) live here:

1/24/2015 — Large Explosive Eruption in Japan at Sakurajima Volcano ~ Dutchsinse


January 23, 2015: An explosive nighttime eruption of Sakurajima Volcano in Japan was captured by the webcams monitoring this active region of South Japan. 地震火山噴火溶岩日本 (as seen on http://webcams.volcanodiscovery.com )

Sakurajima volcano has been active in the past (2011 especially), and has since calmed down over the past year.

Recently, a few larger eruptions of ash have occurred, as well as a few minor lavic eruptions, however today’s most recent eruption really lets us know that the Pacific activity is increasing.

The 7.0 magnitude earthquake which occurred in the West Pacific yesterday (january 23 2015), as well as the dozens of 5.0M+ earthquakes which occurred from Japan, South to New Guniea proves the West Pacific is in a state of flux.

In 2011, before the Japan 9.0M “mega-quake”, there were a series of new eruptions which occurred around the Pacific, as well as multiple impressive eruptions of Sakurajima.

In my most recent earthquake forecast, specifically named out the area around Japan to watch for increased volcanic eruption activity (in the near term) due to this new earthquake unrest showing across the entire region.

See the most recent international earthquake forecast here (Jan 22 2015):

and here (Jan 19 2015):

_____

See the most recent earthquake forecast followup results (Jan 23 2015):

See the most recent United States earthquake forecast results here:

and here:

_____

Since the entire region is being displaced by seismic activity, it is logical to assume that the seismic unrest happening anywhere from 350 miles depth (asthenosphere) to near surface levels, will also displace the magma chambers of sever volcanoes across the Pacific whose magma chambers reside in the area between the surface and 350 miles deep.

The area 350 miles down is showing movement, therefore everything above the area, and the adjacent areas on either flank of the deep movement will be moved as well.

Move a magma chamber, and you get an eruption.

I’d expect much more to happen in the near term , not only in Japan, but several areas around the Pacific MUST compensate either volcanically, or via larger earthquakes.

1/21/2015 — New MASSIVE lava flow in Hawaii being ignored by officials — Why?!


Aloha Everyone,

Sorry for the lack of posts over the last few days, but over the last week Kauai’s been hit hard with volcanic “vog” brought here by the tradewinds, many local residents have been hit hard with respiratory problems – including “yours truly”.

Now, after taking a look below at all the volcanic activity on the Big Isand, it’s no wonder we’re suffering.

Thankfully, I’m starting to feel better today :)

Why would officials downplay, and deliberately ignore an obvious large outbreak of lava flowing from Pu’u O’o in Hawaii?

usgs downplaying lava flow hawaii jan 21 2015
Above: (Left) screenshot of the USGS saying all is quiet on the front (true) while leaving out the huge outbreak of lava (seen in the 6 pictures on the right from the most recent helicopter flyover). Obviously the USGS and civil defense are leaving this new development out of their reports. Why omit this development?

See the outbreak for yourself, then listen to the civil defense update… and THEN read the USGS post made today basically saying all is quiet on the outbreak front (which is true), then they skip over the obvious huge new flow captured on helicopter flyover.

Here is the most recent flyover as of January 19-20 2015:


Here is another version  from today, January 21 2015 with their own music added and multiple distant views showing the new large flow:

 


Here is a close up HD view of the new up slope flow from January 18th 2015:


Now that you’ve seen the actual activity evidence yourself (in the above recent videos),  be sure to listen to the civil defense update issued the same day as this flyover was done!

Civil defense saying everything is stalled, with no new developments in the flow!

Do they not have access to the helicopter views?  How could they NOT know?  How could the USGS leave the new flow up slope out of their most recent update?

 


Below is the USGS update issued today (January 21 2015) , after I put out the flyover video, the USGS responded with this post saying everything is calm on the flow front.

Technically this is true, the flow front has stalled.  However, the truth is that 1.5 – 2 miles up slope, a new outbreak has occurred that is fairly large (as seen in the above videos and screenshots).

USGS being deliberately oblivious.  Civil Defense not giving the public information that is clearly available to them.
