Village evacuated as Peru’s Ubinas volcano erupts


Ubinas volcano in southwest Peru erupts, sending smoke and ash into the air. It became active again in September 2013 after lying dormant for decades

A volcano in Peru that has not erupted 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 60 villagers from Querapi, near its base, to be relocated on Saturday, Ubinas town mayor Pascual Coaquira said.

“We are readying a shelter for refugees from the blasts,” he added, 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 evacuation.

3/26/2014 Yellowstone Magma Chamber Animals Leaving Yellowstone? What Do They Know We Don’t Know?


Note: It’s been a few months since I closely followed earthquake monitoring, since then global seismic activity has continued to rise in tandem with the rising consciousness tsunami. As people around the world wake up, the “system” fights back. In the process the planet responds to cleanse, purge and clear out the chaos manifesting within the consciousness of billions of people as they move through the shift into a new paradigm. These changes are natural and nothing to fear, the consciousness of Mother Earth is moving humanity through planetary change as smoothly as possible.

Staying positive, grounded with the Earth and in alignment with your inner core BE-ing will guide you through any upheaval your region may experience. Much love to all!

friend Tom Lupshu just released the 1st video below in which he warns us that nearly one quarter of the northern elk herd at Yellowstone National Park are missing according to the annual winter count. We learn that biologists aren’t sure if there has been a stunning decline in the herd to account for these missing numbers or if there are other factors at play. Tom also shares with us that helium releases are now at 1000 times above normal while a complete media blackout also exists.

Animals Leaving Yellowstone? What Do They Know We Don’t Know? by TAT’S 2 MIN NEWS

 

———————————————————————–

While it has been said that animals often give us warnings far ahead of earth changing events, Yellowstone recently witnessed herds of bison running for their lives on the public roadways (as shown in the 2nd video below) that WERE NOT being chased or rounded up. Are these animals now detecting something potentially vast and deadly? The Yellowstone Supervolcano is the only thing there that would fit the bill. Tom warns that we should watch these animals and watch them very closely as they will always give us a heads up before an event. Are all of these events signs that the Yellowstone caldera is about to blow?

3/26/2014 — Volcanic Earthquakes — Yellowstone and California — Animals giving warning?

 

 

Over the past 48 hours, a noticeable increase in seismic activity has occurred across the Western United States.

 

Specifically, a swarm of earthquakes has occurred extending from the Western edge of the Yellowstone magma chamber, now Eastward into the center of the National Park itself.

 

This building pressure is now manifesting as multiple 3.0M+ earthquakes, all at a 3.0mile or greater depth inside the Yellowstone magma chamber.

 

As if Yellowstone were not enough, the pressure is also translating to earthquakes occurring farther Southwest from Yellowstone, along the deformed edge of the North American Craton, extending into Central California , along the subduction zone of the North American Plate (and the Pacific Plate).

The above screenshots show the past 2 United States earthquakes greater than 3.0M. One inside the Yellowstone supervolcano, the other at an “unnamed” volcano in California.

 


 

Video update on the current Yellowstone movement from tatoott1009 here:

 

 

 


 

The heavy earthquake activity along the West Coast of the United States , over the past few weeks, has now translated in the craton displacement that we were expecting.

 

The earthquakes inside the magma chamber at Yellowstone, and the earthquakes now occurring at dormant volcanic chains along South / Central California, mean we can expect further activity in the near term to INCREASE.

 

The increase in activity along the edge of the craton will continue into the near term future due to the overall Pacific displacement occurring internationally.

 

Until things cool off internationally in the West Pacific, we can expect sizable displacement to occur along our plate in North America.  This means, Yellowstone, Colorado, Oklahoma, and other areas along the edge of the edge of the craton need to be aware of the possibility of movement in the near term.

 

Also.. the odd man out, Southern California , near Baja, sits primed, and now showing slight volcanic chamber activity.  Expect Salton Sea and Mono Lake to be showing some movement soon.

 

Earlier this past week.. we made note of the multiple UNREPORTED earthquakes at Yellowstone..

Move forward a few days, and the USGS is now on top of things apparently.  Either that, or the movement is now becoming undeniable.

 

In other news from the region, last week, reports of odd Bison (buffalo) movements exiting the park..

 

Were the animals trying to tell us something?

Yellowstone Magma Chamber Earthquake Swarm — USGS Censoring Activity 3/25/2014

Over the past week, several reports have been coming in from viewers, telling me to check the charts in Yellowstone. People saying the charts are showing UNREPORTED activity on multiple stations across the famous Supervolcano (national park).

Indeed, activity was occurring this past week, but NOT being counted on the USGS public feeds as earthquakes.

Earthquakes at Yellowstone not being reported? What is this madness?

After checking the actual charts, indeed it is confirmed, there has been earthquake movement GREATER than 2.5M across the area, the charts do not lie……

Here are a couple examples of the activity NOT showing on public feeds as “earthquakes”.. yet clearly some actual movement is occurring : (censored?)

Move forward a few days, now currently March 25, 2014 — after the flurry of UNREPORTED activity — and now the USGS is showing THREE 3.0M+ events over the past 24 hours.

Coming from the Western edge of the Yellowstone Magma Chamber (click to view full size) :

yellowstone swarm march 25 2014

 

The magma chamber for the supervolcano has been found to extend further West than originally thought. Confirmed now via subterranean “soundings” taken via ground penetrating RADAR, the chamber extends as far West as the Oregon State Line.


Compare the “reported” 3.0M+ events shown on the charts below, to the charts over the past few days, shown above.

The charts above show similar sized activity. However no earthquakes were reported at Yellowstone corresponding to the charts above.

This means censorship is occurring at some point. The earthquakes on the charts earlier this week, were not reported as earthquakes to the public.

Move forward 2-3 days… March 24, 2014 .. THREE earthquakes, greater than 3.0M, now showing on the Yellowstone charts, and also being publicly admitted on the USGS feeds.

Russian volcano: sends pillar of fire 1,000 meters into the air


 

© Marc Szeglat
Klyuchevskoy

With a pillar of fire stretching up into the clouds, this spectacular image captures the moment a volcano erupted in remote Russia. The stream of lava rose up to a kilometer above the summit of Klyuchevskoy, one of the active volcanoes on the Kamchatka peninsula in the east of the country. The volcano, which erupts around every two years, is one of the largest on-land active volcanoes, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It stands at 15,584f t on the north end of a belt of 30 active volcanoes.

Comment: Almost looks like a lightning bolt? See: Cyclones, Earthquakes, Volcanoes And Other Electrical Phenomena

The dramatic picture of Klyuchevskoy was captured by photographer Marc Szeglat on October 16 at a distance of approximately 9.5 miles from its concealed cone, as the volcano erupted for the first time in three years. The explosion triggered by the eruption could be heard from 20 miles away. In September 1994, an eruption caused disruption after it affected airline routes across the Pacific Ocean. The active nature of the volcano, which first began erupting in 1697, means it is still rarely a target for climbers

Seven Volcanoes In Six Different Countries All Start Erupting Within Hours Of Each Other


A new island has appeared in the Pacific. A submarine eruption just off Nishino-Shima Island Japan has erupted for the first time in 40 years. The Japanese Navy noticed the explosions as boiling lava met sea water giving rise to plumes of steam and ash.

Almost 7,000 miles away in Mexico, the Colima volcano blew its top after a period of relative calm. A steam and ash cloud rose two miles into the sky and the grumbling of the mountain could be heard in towns a few miles away.

In Guatemala the ‘Fire Mountain’ belched out lava and sent up a moderate ash cloud causing an ash fall over nearby towns. The explosions and shock waves occurring in the volcano can be felt by residents over 6 miles away. Doors and windows are reported to be rattling, but there has been no damage so far.

In Vanuatu the Yasur volcano is giving some cause for concern. Although the explosions are quite weak the continuous ash that is coming from the mountain is starting to build up on farming land.

Over to Italy, Mount Etna is putting on quite a display. The current eruption started a few days ago and has been getting stronger as time moves on. A massive eruption lit up the sky and disturbed residents yesterday. The ash cloud was high enough to see flights canceled. The lava flow was the biggest in years, and the town of Zafferana which lay in its path saw some damage. Lava diverters were put into place, and most of the town escaped unscathed.

In Indonesia a four mile high ash cloud is making life hard for residents. Mount Sinabung came back to life in 2010 after dormancy of hundreds of years. Occasionally coming to life after its 2010 awakening, the rumbling of the volcano prompted the evacuation of over 6000 people as scientists feared a major eruption. There has been no lava flows so far but the ash cloud is growing.

Mount Sinabung ash cloud

Still in Indonesia but on the island of Java this time, Mount Merapi exploded yesterday. Hundreds of people were killed when it last erupted in 2010. There is no news of casualties at this point.

So, we have eruptions big enough to prompt evacuations. Flights are canceled, and a new island pops up off the coast of Japan. I would have called that newsworthy myself but obviously I’m wrong. If I was right it would have been common knowledge right? Reports may have been on the news right?

So many volcanoes throwing so much gas, ash and particulates into the air can have an effect on climate, this is a scientific fact. I’m not saying that these volcanoes herald the start of a new ice age but the planet certainly seems to be getting a bit more active of late.

Continued large eruptions put a huge amount of particulate matter into the atmosphere, and these particles reflect sunlight away from earth and when there is enough of them the temperatures can drop.

The Mount Pinatubo eruption lowered temperatures by around 0.5°C across the Northern Hemisphere.

Considering that we are in a cooling period anyway, having so many volcanoes going off at the same time is not good. Aside from the devastating effects the lava and ash can have on the lives of those living near to them, the global impacts can be enormous.

Lost crops due to ash fall and lower temperatures can lead to hunger and famine, as happened after the Tamboraeruption in 1815.

Economic losses due to lost crops and canceled flights runs into millions of dollars a day, as with the Icelandic eruption of Eyjafjallojkull (pronounced: aya fiat la u cud la) in 2010.

The spasms of the earth come without warning, but at the same time those spasms should be a wake up call to all of us that change can happen in the blink of an eye.

Better be prepared for it.

New island emerged off the coast of Tokyo, Bonin Islands


                                                                                    A new island has emerged off the coast of Tokyo on October 20, 2013, as a result of underwater volcano eruption.

Advisories from the coast guard and the Japan Meteorological Agency said the island is about 200 meters (660 feet) in diameter. The island emerged 1 000 km (620 miles) south of Tokyo, just off the coast of Nishinoshima, a small, uninhabited island in the Ogasawara chain, which is also known as the Bonin Islands.

The last time the volcanoes in that area are known to have erupted was in the mid-1970′s. Much of the volcanic activity occurs under the sea, which extends thousands of meters deep along the Izu-Ogasawara-Marianas Trench.

Pictures taken by the Japanese coast guard showed clouds of heavy smoke, billowing steam, and waters rolling over the newly formed crater.

Video courtesy RT

The Ogasawara Islands were formed around 48 million years ago. They are a part of the Izu-Bonin-Mariana Arc known geologically as a fore arc. They lie above a subduction zone between the Pacific Plate and the Philippine Sea Plate.

The Pacific Plate is subducting under the Philippine Sea Plate, which creates an oceanic trench to the east of the islands. The crust of the Ogasawara (Bonin) Islands was formed by volcanic activity when subduction began 45–50 million years ago, and is composed mostly of an andesitic volcanic rock called boninite, which is rich in magnesium oxide, chromium, and silicon dioxide.

The Ogasawara Islands may represent the exposed parts of an ophiolite that has not yet been emplaced on oceanic crust. The rocks of the Volcano Islands are much younger; Iwo Jima is a dormant volcano characterized by rapid uplift and several hot springs. Most of the islands have steep shorelines, often with sea cliffs ranging from 50 to 100 meters (160 to 330 ft) in height, but the islands are also fringed with coral reefs and have many beaches.[34] The highest point lies on South Iwo Jima, at 916 meters (3,005 ft) (Bonin Islands).

‘Volcano-like eruption’ on India’s Manipur hills, locals flee to safety


 

 

October 22, 2013Manipur, INDIA - A suspected volcano-like eruption has been reported in a remote village of Manipur near the India-Myanmar border which forced locals to evacuate the area, official sources said on Sunday. According to locals in Tusom village in Ukhrul district of Manipur, a deafening sound was followed by the rolling down of a huge boulder from a nearby hilltop which then released a lava-like liquid that charred trees and plants on the hill slopes. Although the incident reportedly occurred on October 13, road link between the district headquarters and Tusom was so bad it took the villagers several days to reach the information about the matter to the officials concerned, sources said. The district headquarters is 120km away from the village. No casualty was, however, reported in the incident. Official reports from the district said mud, water and other discharges were still flowing from the hilltop. Villagers have moved to safer places in the neighborhood, they added.
Sources said it would take time to assess whether the event was a volcanic eruption or not. Deputy speaker of Manipur assembly, MK Preshow said he would lead an official team to assess the damages. Tusom village falls under his assembly constituency of Chingai. Preshow said he would ask officials to take precautionary measures in the area, which falls near border pillar No. 129. Villagers in the said area rely entirely on the Somra area of neighboring Myanmar for their items of daily use, Preshow said. However, since the road to Somra was blocked following the incident, steps would be taken by the state government to supply the villagers with essential items, Preshow added.Times of India


 

Volcano Update: Explosive Eruptions on Mt Etna, Kamchatka’s Zhupanovsky and Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung


Mount Etna’s explosive erupion causes airport closure

October 30, 2013ITALY – Mount Etna, one of the most active volcanoes in the world has again started spewing lava from its bowels and sent a huge plume of volcanic ash into the air much akin to the earlier eruptions in 2012. Mount Etna volcano is situated in Sicily and it started to spew volcanic ash on Saturday Morning. There has been no casualties’ according to BBC but Air Traffic at the Catania airport was temporarily halted because of the smoke. The Airport reopened at Dawn. As mentioned, Mt Etna is an active volcano which erupts regularly at short intervals. Situated in Sicily the volcano stands at an imposing 10,922 feet high at its summit and is Europe’s highest and most active volcano. The volcano has been spewing small and sporadic volcanic ash emissions since September. Mount Etna reported the 13th episode of activity in 2013, but the last major eruption was in 1992. The primeval Greeks thought Mount Etna was home to the god of fire, Vulcan. When Mount Etna erupted, they thought that Vulcan was simply forging weapons for Mars, the god of war. Volcanic eruptions are often accompanied by tremors and in Mount Etna’s case also underground tremors were reported on Friday before the eruptions on Saturday. Till now evacuation has not been ordered from the many villages that are present on the volcano slopes. –Pentagon Post

80: Kamchatka’s Zhupanovsky volcano erupts with large ash cloud: volcano awakes after 54 years

October 25, 2013KAMCHATKA – A new explosive eruption started yesterday night (23 Oct). An ash plume was detected drifting at an estimated 16,000 ft (5 km) altitude and drifting ESE. At least 1 mm of ash has been deposited in the Nalychevo valley, a natural park between Zhupanovsky and Avachinsky volcanoes. Zhupanovsky volcano lies about 70 km northeast of the capital of Kamchatka, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, and had its last eruption in 1959. It is a complex volcano composed of several overlapping cones aligned on a roughly east-west oriented axis. The new eruption comes from the same vent that has been also the site of all known historical eruptions, located west of the highest point of the volcanic massif. Zhupanovsky is the 8th volcano in Kamchatka to erupt this year. –Volcano Discovery

Indonesian volcano expels powerful burst of ash; 3,300 evacuate, second large eruption in 40 days

October 25, 2013INDONESIA – A volcano in western Indonesia erupted Thursday, unleashing a column of dark volcanic material high into the air weeks after villagers were returning home from an earlier eruption, officials said. The explosion at Mount Sinabung, located in North Sumatra province, shot black ash 3 km into the air, but there were no reports of injuries or damage, said National Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho. He said villages, farms and trees around the 2,600-meter-high rumbling volcano were covered in thick gray ash, prompting authorities to evacuate more than 3,300 people. Most were from two villages within 3 km of the mountain in Karo district. No lava or debris spewed from the volcano, and nearby towns and villages were not in danger, but authorities warned tourists to stay away from the danger zone located 1.5 km from the crater, Nugroho said. Last month, more than 15,000 people were forced to flee when the volcano rumbled to life after being dormant for three years, belching ash and smoke and igniting fires on its slopes. The volcano’s last major eruption, in August 2010, killed two people and forced 30,000 others to flee. It caught many scientists off guard because it had been quiet for four centuries. Mount Sinabung is among more than 120 active volcanoes in Indonesia, which is prone to seismic upheaval due to its location on the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” an arc of volcanos and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin. –Japan Times

 

Volcanic Lightning


Volcanic lightning is a visually incredible, naturally occurring phenomenon that has been witnessed and documented in nearly 200 eruptions over the last 200 years. The most recent images of volcanic lightning that occurred at Eyjafjallajokull have generated a lot of interest worldwide and allowed people to witness volcanic lightning for the first time in real time and high definition. How can a volcano create lightning? Why is volcanic lightning often contained within or in close proximity to the ash plume? What types of eruptions are most conducive for the creation of volcanic lightning? These are all good questions, and in order to answer them we must first look at the physics that makes it all possible.

In order for lightning to form there is one key component; a large charge separation between two masses. If the charge separation becomes big enough it is then able to overpower the air resistance, create a path of ionized air, and conduct electricity in the form of lightning. The ash that is to be erupted begins as electrostatically neutral rock or rock fragments. Heat and movement within the volcano is thought to be the first source of particle charging, although the main process by which ash particles acquire a charge is friction. When an object (in this case ash) with a neutral charge comes in contact with another object with differring elctrostatic qualities, electrons can potentially flow and one of the objects can become charged relative to the other. Think of skidding your socked feet rapidly across the carpet or rubbing a ballon quickly against your head. The same type of charge is accumulating within the ash cloud, only on a much larger scale.

The lightning itself may come in many shapes and forms including St. Elmo’s fire(ball lightning), bolt lightning, sheet lightning, or a combination as was the case during the eruption of Mt. St. Helens in 1980 when several people witnessed long lasting shows of sheet lightning which was accompanied by volkswagen sized St. Elmo’s fire bouncing and rolling on the ground nearly 25 miles from the volcano.

 

New volcanic vent discovered close to airport in Rome, Italy


 

 

 

August 26, 2013 ROME, Italy Italian experts have been puzzled by the overnight appearance of what looks like a volcanic geyser erupting steam and gases 5 meters into the air. What appears to be a new fumarole appeared near Rome’s International Fiumicino airport Saturday morning. A vent producing small geyser-like fountains of steam, water and mud was suddenly opened in the ground near a road crossing near Fiumicino. Geologists are currently examining the phenomenon. It is still a bit unclear whether it is not a man-made accident caused by a broken pipe or similar (which might well be the case). As La Repubblica statess, first inspections however indicate that it is in fact a new natural vent. Obviously, there are also already some speculations whether it could be related to volcanic activity. The nearest possibly still active volcanic system in the area is the Monti Albani, an old but possibly not yet extinct volcanic complex located 20 km SE of the capital. Its last known activity there took place about 20,000 years ago. New volcanic activity in the suburban area of Rome itself is certainly not a completely impossible, but quite unlikely scenario. More data will be needed to shed light on this. “From Mt. Etna in Sicily up to the Alban hills around Rome, there is a good deal of volcanic activity,” Alberto Basilli, a seismologist at the Italian National Institute for Geophysics and Volcanology told the Daily Telegraph. –Volcano Discovery

Mount Rokatenda volcano erupts in Indonesia, killing five


 

 

 

August 10, 2013INDONESIAA volcano eruption in central Indonesia has spewed hot ash and rocks high into the air and left five people dead. Mount Rokatenda, on the tiny island of Palue, sent fast-moving red-hot ash onto a nearby beach, leaving three adults and two children dead, said vulcanology centre head Surono. Rokatenda (Paluweh) has been on high alert since October, with authorities banning people from any activities within three kilometres from the crater on the island of around 7,000 inhabitants. Surono, speaking from Bandung city on Java island, said his staff at the scene had reported the five people had been killed within the exclusion zone. It was not clear what the victims had been doing in the restricted area when it erupted, he said. “We have found the bodies of the adults, but we are still looking for the children, and it is difficult because the area is still very hot,” Surono, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, said. The volcano began erupting at 04:27am (local time) on Friday and it continued for nearly four hours, Surono said. He said volcanic ash travelled as far as 2,000 meters from the crater. The Indonesian archipelago has dozens of active volcanoes and straddles major tectonic fault lines known as the “Ring of Fire” between the Pacific and Indian oceans. The country’s most active volcano, Mount Merapi in central Java, killed more than 350 people in a series of violent eruptions in 2010. –ABC News

World’s largest geyser springs to life in Yellowstone after 8 year hiatus


 

 

 

August 2, 2013WYOMINGThe world’s largest geyser has exploded to life at Yellowstone National Park for the first time in eight years, sending a high-pressure burst of steamy water 300 feet into the air, a park official said on Thursday. The stream of 160 degree water released on Wednesday night by the so-called Steamboat Geyser lasted for roughly 10 minutes, delighting a small number of “geyser gazers” who have waited years for such a show, Yellowstone spokesman Dan Hottle said. “There are a lot of people who wait hour after hour, day after day, for things to erupt,” he said. Yellowstone visitors could potentially wait a lifetime for Steamboat Geyser, which has gone as long as 50 years between major eruptions. Steamboat Geyser last sent a superheated torrent of water hundreds of feet into the air in May 2005. Yellowstone, which stretches across the states of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming, is the oldest and arguably best known U.S. national park, attracting more than 3 million visitors a year. The park contains half the world’s geothermal features in the form of more than 300 geysers and countless hot springs, boiling mud pots and steam-emitting fumaroles. Old Faithful, the park’s most famous geyser, gained its name by reliably spewing hot water and steam every 90 minutes. Major eruptions of Yellowstone geysers can be likened to pressure cookers. They are caused when cold water from snowmelt and rain meets underlying rock liquefied by heat. The mix creates steam that rises in temperature and pressure until it shoots through surface vents, carrying overlying water with it. Geyser eruptions can trigger seismic tremors and have sometimes been mistaken for earthquakes by Yellowstone visitors. “The ground shakes and you can hear it from several miles away. It sounds like a jet taking off,” Hottle said. –Reuters

Signs Of Change The Past Week…Or So ~ July 2013 Part 2


This is the first I’ve seen of underground fires erupting, which could mean that as the Earth continues to expand there are areas where rising magma is getting very close to the surface. It’s kind of hard to tell, but it looks like you can see the magma through one of the openings in the ground.  How will these fires interact with rising methane and hydrogen sulfide gases, and are the two related? Should be the next logical question…

May 24, 2013RUSSIA, FAR EAST – The remote volcano in the northern Kuriles is probably in eruption, the latest SVERT report and satellite images suggest. A plume of gas and steam, and possibly some minor amounts ash was seen with the MODIS sensor onboard the NASA Terra satellite this morning. Satellite data also indicate that activity had likely already started in early May, because a small thermal anomaly can be traced back on archive pictures to 7 May. One should take into account that frequent dense cloud cover often prevents such observations, so activity could have started earlier than that. It is not known what kind of activity is occurring at the volcano. Possibilities include some minor explosive (strombolian ?) activity at the summit, or lava flows that might be reaching the sea and produce the steam plume observed. The last eruption of the volcano was (probably) in 2004. –Volcano Discovery

Eruption continues in Mexico: Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano unleashed another wave of powerful exhalations and explosions in the early hours of Thursday (May 23), officials reported. Hundreds of individual exhalations reaching up to 2.5 km (1.5 miles) of smoke and ash spewed out of Popocatepetl in the latest escalation in activity. An explosion at 02:54 local time (06:54 GMT) also sent fragments out over 1.5 kilometers (0.9 miles), Mexico’s National Centre for Disaster Prevention reported. -WSBRADIO

Deep 8.3 magnitude earthquake strikes Sea of Okhotsk in Russia’s Far East

Sea of Okhotsk
May 24, 2013KAMCHATKA – A magnitude 8.3 earthquake struck off Russia’s eastern coast on Friday, briefly prompting a tsunami scare but causing no casualties or substantial damage, Russian emergency authorities said. The epicenter of the quake was located at a depth of 385 miles in the Sea of Okhotsk, 244 miles west of the nearest city, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The quake was felt in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, the main city on the Kamchatka peninsula and home to a nuclear submarine base, and on Sakhalin Island, where Russia’s largest liquefied natural gas project is located. The earthquake struck 608 km (377 miles) below the ocean- diminishing any tsunami risks. Regional emergency authorities issued a tsunami warning for Sakhalin and the Kurile Islands, advising residents of dangerous areas to seek high ground, but lifted the warning several minutes later. Residents of northern Japan felt the quake but there was no tsunami warning from Japan’s meteorological agency. It’s the second major earthquake to strike the planet in 24 hours. A 7.4 earthquake struck the region of Tonga, in the South Pacific, hours earlier.  –Reuters
Pacific Plate Quakes May 24
Pacific Plate turbulence increases: At 103 million square kilometers, the Pacific plate is the largest of the tectonic plates and consequently the most violent. Geological forces are tearing at the integrity and stability of this large lithospheric cross-section of the planet. As I reported several days ago, seismic tension was mounting along the Pacific tectonic plate. The cascading series of earthquakes over the last 24 hours are yet one more indication that dynamic geological change is accelerating within the interior of the planet. These processes of change will have profound implications for the entire Ring of Fire and all subduction zones located within this region.

Shallow 5.7 magnitude northern California earthquake felt across two states

California May 24
May 24, 2013CALIFORNIA – An earthquake in far northeastern California was felt by thousands of people as far away as San Francisco and in two other states, but there have been no reports of injury or serious damage. The magnitude-5.7 quake broke dishes and shook mirrors when it struck at 8:47 p.m. Thursday, officials said. It was centered near Greenville, about 25 miles southwest of Susanville in far northeastern California, said Rafael Abreu, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Earthquake Center in Golden, Colo. There have been several aftershocks, including a magnitude 4.9 that struck early Friday morning. Slight damage has been reported including objects falling from shelves and dishes rattled or broken, according to a report from the National Weather Service. Susan Shephard and her husband Alan Shephard, who run the Quail Lodge at Lake Almanor near Greenville very close to the epicenter, said they were watching “The Hunger Games” on TV when the whole building started shaking. “All of a sudden things started falling off the shelves, mirrors fell off the wall, vases fell down to the floor, everything started crashing,” Shephard told the Redding Record-Searchlight. “It felt like the end of our world.” The Susanville Fire Department said it had received no reports of damage, and a Plumas County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher said calls were flooding into its office but no reports of damage. Thousands of people reported feeling the quake, as far away as the San Francisco Bay area and across the borders into Oregon and Nevada, according to the USGS website. KCRA-TV in Sacramento reported that the Plumas County temblor was felt in downtown Sacramento, about 145 miles south of the epicenter. People in Yuba and Sutter Counties, south of Plumas, said they felt a rolling quake, according to the Marysville Appeal-Democrat. “People in the area felt a strong jolt, but it was not enough to generate serious damage, based on early field reports,” Abreu said. –ABC News

Alert level raised on Chile’s Copahue volcano to orange after ash emissions

May 24, 2013CHILE – SERNAGEOMIN has raised the alert level to orange. Since May 15, a progressive increase in seismic activity as well emissions of gas and now some ash have been observed. Both earthquakes related to rock fracturing and fluid movements have picked up in numbers and possibly indicate a new magmatic intrusion on its way. This scenario is confirmed by the start of small ash emissions and glow at the crater which is visible at night. The plume of gas and ash could be seen from space by the MODIS sensor, stretching about 100 km to the southeast. Copahue volcano had already experienced a first increase of activity in December, and a second one in January. No eruption followed and alert was lowered to green in April before returning to yellow again soon after. –Volcano Discovery

Powerful 7.4 and 6.3 earthquakes strikes off coast of Tonga

May 24, 2013 TONGAA strong quake has hit southwest of Tonga, reportedly shaking homes in the capital Nuku’alofa but no damage has been reported. A magnitude 7.4 earthquake has hit about 255 kilometers southwest of Tonga. A tsunami warning has been issued, but no damage is expected due to the quake’s depth of 171 kilometers, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said. The US Geological Survey says the undersea earthquake, which struck at 5:19am local time, was centered 282 kilometers southwest of Tonga’s capital Nuku’alofa. Local media says the quake shook homes and buildings in Nuku’alofa but no damage was reported. It was followed four hours later by a second powerful 6.6 tremor 84 kilometers northwest of the town. The second quake, at a depth of 103 kilometers, also generated a tsunami warning. The two quakes come 12 days after a similar magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck the area, at a depth of 205 kilometers. Tonga lies on the so-called Pacific “Ring of Fire,” where continental plates collide causing frequent seismic activity. –Radio Australia
Tremors destroy homes in India: Over 60,000 houses and nearly 950 government buildings were damaged in Jammu and Kashmir’s Doda and Kishtwar districts in earthquakes that shook the region since May 1. As many as 33 tremors rocked Bhaderwah-Doda-Kishtwar belt since the beginning of this month with a maximum 11 occurring on May 1. A total of 40,155 houses and 779 government buildings were damaged in quakes in Doda district, officials quoting preliminary assessment reports said. As many as 29,000 houses were damaged partially, 10,500 severely and 655 fully, they said. In Kishtwar district, 18,000 houses were partially damaged, 2,700 severely and 70 fully, the officials said. –Times of India

Sangeang Api volcano (Indonesia): elevated seismic activity triggers alarm

May 22, 2013 – INDONESIA – An increase in seismicity since 26 April triggered VSI to rise the alert status from 2 to 3 on a scale of 1-4 (from “Waspada,” “watch” to Siaga,” alert). For the moment, only degassing has been observed as surface activity. A similar increase in seismic activity was observed in Oct 2012, when the alert was raised as well and then reduced again in November. The last eruption at the volcano occurred in 2009. –Volcano Discovery

Alaska’s Pavlof volcanic eruption grows more violent: air traffic disrupted by rising ash cloud

May 21, 2013 – ANCHORAGE, Alaska – One of Alaska’s most active volcanoes, which has been belching ash and spewing lava since last week, has forced regional flight cancellations and dusted some nearby communities with ash, scientists and local officials said on Monday. Pavlof Volcano has sent up ash as high as 22,000 feet, with the cloud blowing eastward and the eruption showing no signs of abating, according to the federal-state Alaska Volcano Observatory. The lava from its 8,261-foot (2,518-metre) peak has also created huge steam clouds on meeting the mountain’s snow. While the ash plume was still too low on Monday to affect commercial airliners flying at least 30,000 feet above sea level between Asia and North America, it was scrambling schedules for regional carriers serving rural fishing towns and native villages that lack outside road access. PenAir, an Anchorage-based Alaska company specializing in travel in southwestern Alaska, briefly stopped flights to four destinations to wait for ash to dissipate, said Danny Seybert, the carrier’s chief executive. “We’ve had about a dozen cancellations due to the volcano,” he said. PenAir’s planes fly at altitudes between 15,000 and 20,000 feet, exactly where they could encounter ash, depending on wind direction, Seybert said. Among the cancellations were flights in and out of Unalaska/Dutch Harbor, the top-volume seafood port in the United States, he said. Ash plumes could go higher, as Pavlof’s eruption could intensify with little warning, the Alaska Volcano Observatory said. Trace amounts of ash fell overnight on Nelson Lagoon, a tiny Aleut village of 50 residents located 48 miles northeast of Pavlof. The volcano had earlier sprinkled ash on Sand Point, a fishing town of about 1,000 people, when the wind was blowing in a slightly different direction, according to the observatory. Along with potential aviation hazards, the ash poses possible health risks, said Rick Wessels, a U.S. Geological Survey geophysicist at the observatory. “It’s dangerous for the people downwind of it, because you don’t really want to breathe in that fine ash that long,” Wessels said of the eruption taking place on the Alaska Peninsula, 590 miles southwest of Anchorage. Pavlof is one of Alaska’s most restless volcanoes and had its last major eruption in 2007. The Alaska Volcano Observatory estimates it has erupted about two dozen times between 1901 and 2007. –Yahoo News

Shallow 6.5 magnitude earthquake strikes off the coast of Aisen, Chile

May 20, 2013SANTIAGO, Chile — The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude-6.5 earthquake has struck off the coast of Chile. The quake was recorded at 5:49 a.m. local time (EDT; 0949 GMT) Monday, at a shallow depth of 10 kilometres, some 600 kilometres from the city of Puerto Quellon. No tsunami warning was issued. Chile’s naval seismology office says it was not felt on land. U.S. seismologists originally estimated the magnitude at 6.8. Chile is one of the world’s most earthquake-prone countries. A magnitude-8.8 quake and the tsunami it unleashed in 2010 killed 551 people and destroyed 220,000 homes. It was so strong it changed time, shortening the Earth’s day slightly by changing the planet’s rotation. The strongest earthquake ever recorded also happened in Chile, a magnitude-9.5 in 1960. –CTV News

Alaska’s Pavlof Volcano ejects lava hundreds of feet into the air


 

 

 

May 19, 2013ANCHORAGE - Alaska’s remote Pavlof Volcano has been shooting lava hundreds of feet into the air, but its ash plume is thinning and is no longer making it dangerous for airplanes to fly nearby. Geologist Chris Waythomas of the Alaska Volcano Observatory says a narrow ash plume extends a couple hundred miles southeast from the volcano, which is 625 miles southwest of Anchorage. The eruption that began Monday seemed to be slowing on Saturday, but Waythomas says that could change at any time. He says seismic tremors from the 8,262-foot volcano have been going up and down, but remain at a fairly high level. Scientists are not expecting the eruption to end anytime soon but so far it has not been explosive. There are mud flows racing down the summit, but no one lives close enough to the volcano to be threatened. –ABC News

 

 

Calif. Homes Sinking In Volcanic Country, Lakeport Community Evacuated


By Maxine Wally | May 11, 2013

Lakeport Flooded House

California homes are falling between the cracks-literally.

About 100 miles north of San Francisco in a neighborhood called Lakeport, cracks in the ground that have turned into cavernous divides are splitting homes, causing them to break and sink beneath the ground.

The community was built upon now-dormant volcano Mount Konocti; officials can’t say whether or not the volcano is a contributing factor in the strange splitting occurrence.

“We have a dormant volcano, and I’m certain a lot of things that happen here (in Lake County) are as a result of that, but we don’t know about that,” county public works director Scott De Leon told Yahoo News.

Residents Scott and Robin Spivey noticed cracks in the walls of their Tudor-style home that widened by the day.

“We want to know what is going on here,” Spivey said.

Spivey, former city building inspector, and his wife were among the eight households that have now been evacuated in the Clear Lake area of Lake County. 10 more are on imminent evacuation notice.

“It’s a slow-motion disaster,” Randall Fitzgerald, Lakeside Heights resident, said.

These kinds of collapses that happen in volcanic areas with steep hills can move numerous feet one day, and a quarter of an inch the next.

Some, including Consultant Tom Ruppenthal of Utility Services Associates in Seattle say that groundwater is partly to blame. Water has surfaced in the area-there has suddenly been a wellspring of water at the top of hills, where not much groundwater runs-that erodes some of the land until it splits.

“It’s very common for groundwater to shift its course,” he said. “I think the groundwater has shifted.”

Until homeowners can settle finances with insurance companies-some of whom have left residents high and dry, as these kinds of home emergencies are not often covered-they will have to make due.

“It’s a tragedy, really,” contractor Dean Pick said while taking pictures in Lakeport for an insurance company. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Extreme Weather Phenomena Escalating Worldwide


Published on May 7, 2013

SuspectSky SuspectSky

Over the past year the world has experienced unprecedented and bizarre weather phenomena – from record breaking heat and cold to increasing earthquake activity worldwide. It’s not just global warming, but rather, a system wide surge of strange weather activity.

This video compiles extreme earth changes and weather events, with footage including meteors entering the atmosphere, sinkholes opening up worldwide, the discovery of dark lightning, increasing volcano activity, and a uniquely unusual UFO sighting in Ireland.

While this video does NOT imply extreme weather is a result of human activity – it does suggest that climate change is real and occurring all around us. Whatever the source, one may ask – will extreme weather define our world’s history for decades to come?

 

Signs Of Change, Mid April – May 8, 2013


Wow! Gaia is really wreaking havoc, what’s really incredible is considering the massive flooding, a dam breaking, the large earthquakes and volcanic activity taking place in some of the poorest parts of the world, “relatively” few lives appear to have been lost.

Naturally my prayers go out to all the families have who lost loved ones, but when you take a look at the sheer volume of destruction in some places, IMO the death toll could’ve been considerably higher. For instance, tornado’s in Italy are rare, people there likely haven’t been taught how to take cover and stay safe in tornadic conditions; in addition, there weren’t any sirens to forewarn people in the tornado’s path either.

Earths management team has a good handle on assisting Gaia and her children through the shift with with as little loss of life as possible. Fortunately, we’re a resilient race and can be quite resourceful when faced with crisis, and lucky survivors when confronting danger. There’s no reason for fear, we’re always right where we’re supposed to be…

Also, I think it was in the second video that a helicopter cameraman catches footage of Saturn’s rings from his camera!! Very cool..

Here’s the last three weeks of “Signs of Change”…
