The worlds most remote inhabited volcanic island is stirring! | “da Cunha” ~ MrMBB333



June 18, 2017: The most recent seismogram activity at Tristan da Cunha, the worlds most remote inhabited island, is showing signatures of magma intrusion. This island is comprised of basically one volcano thousands of miles from any mainland. It erupted and was evacuated a little over 50 years ago.

Mauna Loa Earthquake Swarm Detected (June 5, 2016)


Note: I started hearing about earthquake swarms on Mana Loa back in early 2013 from a roommate who talked with a civil defense engineer he met at Kilauea volcano. So when I heard about the TMT project, I really questioned the viability of the project and why these plans were being pushed thru.

Currently data is coming in indicating magma is rising from deep underground chambers to the surface, hence the reason we have 40 volcano’s erupting around the ring of fire. In some areas like the US midwest, magma is at Stage 3 Critical levels…meaning close to an eruption.

So this data doesn’t surprise me one bit, as a matter of fact I heard an expert geologist on an interview back in 2013 say he predicts a huge eruption at Mana Loa that will create serious seismic events for the Pacific basin. Whether that’s true, has yet to be seen.

IMO Gaia and Pele have plans for the TMT project…it will never happen on our sacred aina.

(NEW UPDATE) Worldwide Situational Update!!! PROJECT INCENSION


Note: This update was previously posted with several other video’s covering imminent earth changes. At this stage, I feel the data  is worthy of a replay for those who missed the first post. This is info you can try showing to people who are waking-up, or still unaware of what’s unfolding with the planet.

I showed it to a friend last week, he left my house rather dazed and confused that evening – it was evident the data presented definitely impacted his perspective of the world 🙂

Much love, {~A~}

Boiling river near Yellowstone National Park raises concerns


The Shoshone River bubbling like jets in a very smelly Jacuzzi

The Shoshone River, near Yellowstone National Park, suddenly and without warning started boiling, changed color and began to emit a sulfuric odor on March 25. Nearby witnesses wondered if they were “all going to die.” The current consensus among geologists and other experts is that a portion of the Shoshone River began to boil, located near Cody, Wyoming, and a new Yellowstone vent has opened up.

As Mysterious Universe reports, the boiling river near Yellowstone runs just east of Yellowstone National Park. It is close enough to the park and super volcano to be a “canary in a coal mine” as it relates to unusual geothermic events. The event was initially recorded by Dewey Vanderhoff, a photographer who spotted the Shoshone River near Yellowstone boiling and noted other bizarre features in the river.

“I’ve lived here all of my life and I’ve never seen it. It was pretty impressive. The river right there is a really dark green. With a polarizing filter it really popped out. [It bubbled like] like jets in a Jacuzzi.”

Boiling River Near Yellowstone National Park Heats Worries – https://t.co/PVCQi17tm8 pic.twitter.com/5igfmzZlUF

— Mysterious Universe (@mysteriousuniv) April 14, 2016

The Shoshone River near Yellowstone was also emitting a noxious, sulfuric odor, and the stretch of river that was boiling “like jets in a Jacuzzi” was a dark green color.

This isn’t the first time in recorded history that the Shoshone River near Yellowstone has displayed unusual geological activity, most likely related to its proximity to the national park and caldera. Back in the days of Lewis and Clark, an explorer named John Colter, visited the area. The explorer, also a member of Lewis and Clark’s epic expedition, trekked to the area in 1807 and wrote about what he saw. The Shoshone River, near Yellowstone, was known then as the Stinkingwater River, and according to John Colter, when he visited the portion of the river near Yellowstone, he encountered geysers, hot springs and the trademark sulfur-smell of a volcanic river.

The area is also home to sinkholes, geyser cones, and even abandoned sulfur mines.

Despite the descriptions penned by John Colter in 1807, in the interim two centuries, the Shoshone River near Yellowstone has become all but devoid of geothermal activities. According to Jason Burkhardt, a Wyoming Game and Fish Department biologist, the Shoshone River near Yellowstone is currently experiencing a “lull” in geothermal activity.

“We’re kind of in a lull compared to when John Colter was in this area. There was substantially more geothermal activity that was occurring back then.”

Or at least it was, until March 25, when the Shoshone River near Yellowstone began to boil and emit the tell-tale smell of volcanic activity. The river near Yellowstone national park boiled for four days before the activity abruptly ceased.

The boiling of the Shoshone River for four days in March wasn’t the only recent geothermal event in the river to pique the attention of geologists. Recent activity in and around the area of the river near Yellowstone has reportedly released enough hydrogen sulfide into the water to create a dead zone spanning one and a half miles. The stretch of river is now completely devoid of fish due to what Burkhardt referred to as a “chemical barrier,” which is blocking fish from entering.

Some believe this to be a very bad sign.

For now, the boiling in the river near Yellowstone has ceased. However, earthquake activity in and around the Yellowstone supervolcano is reportedly increasing.

It’s difficult to say whether or not the recent boiling of the river near Yellowstone is an indication of something concerning or just, as geologists claim to believe, another of many vents related to the caldera doing what they do, as they’ve always done. Much of our current understanding of the Yellowstone supervolcano has come to light over the last century, and new information and data is being compiled and pored over daily.

Only time will tell whether or not the boiling in the Shoshone River near Yellowstone National Park is part of a bigger trend of geologic change in the region.

1/31/2016 — Earthquake Forecast — USA, Asia + Pacific — SERIOUS Movement Occurring dutchsinse


January 30-31, 2016

The past week has shown a new round of increased activity in the West , North, and East Pacific .. additionally movement crept across to Europe and to the West coast of the United States (California).

Two large M7.2 and M7.3 earthquakes occurred in the North Pacific , Alaska + Kamchatka Russia… both occurring at a semi-deep level between 80-100 miles depth.

This means we need to keep watch in the areas to the WEST Southwest of Kamchatka, along the Himalayan range, as well as the silent areas named in the video.

Here is a graphic with warning that I put out yesterday January 30th, warning for the possibility of a coming large earthquake over this next week:

“Rudolf Steiner then draws a map (see Lecture 10, page 194) showing a tetrahedron with a vertex at the South pole, another vertex at the Colima volcano in central Mexico (latitude 19.6° !) a 3rd vertex in the Caucasus near Mount Ararat in Turkey and the 4th vertex over in Japan. Volcanoes form along these edges because the four triangles have not been thrown together with complete accuracy so that volcanoes can spew out along the weak or open areas of this “seam.” Although Steiner’s tetrahedron is tilted a bit compared to Hoagland’s, nonetheless the principle still holds because there are a number of interpenetrating tetrahedra which can be better understood when one generates the other four Platonic solids: octahedron, cube, icosahedron and dodecahedron from the fundamental tetrahedron. At the very end of the lecture, Steiner expresses a fundamental principle of geosophy in connecting geometrical forms with the formation of the human body.”

Two Supervolcano’s on High Alert: Lake Toba & Campi Flegrei ~ “World’s Most Dangerous Volcano’s” (Documentary))


Note: With magma rising from the center of the Earths mantle, the planet is undergoing many changes. As heat moves closer to the surface it pushes magma into volcanic regions, which includes Supervolcano’s like Yellowstone where we’re seeing heightened seismic activity, gaseous expulsions and other assorted anomalies. At least two supervolcano’s have recently been place on High Alert and it’s rumored the military is monitoring two undersea volcano’s exhibiting heightened activity as well (alert status unknown).

According to the report below, last week Lake Toba apparently went on High Alert. Earlier this year I remember reading accounts of smoke, heat and gaseous fumes coming from the ground in villages above the magma chamber in area where the volcano lies.

It appears the Earth may be approaching a time of great change on the planetary surface. Never give in to fear. Simply be prepared if unexpected change lands on your doorstep, stay calm and know that you ALWAYS have the power to maintain control over your creation and your reality bubble. The key to mastery over any situation we’re confronted with is staying grounded to our Earth Mother, and at One with Great Spirit ~ the Source of ALL creation.

NEVER, EVER give in to fear, worry or feelings of defeat – those are DIS-empowering mind control “programs”.  Instead ALWAYS ask your Higher Self and OverSoul for guidance, remain calm, listen and allow the guidance to come forth.

Love, aloha and blessings…Annette

Lake Toba Supervolcano On High Alert

A friend of mine sent me this email and it’s fairly alarming. It involves the world’s largest supervolcano that erupted some time between sixty nine thousand and seventy four thousand years ago causing a six to ten year winter, and possibly even a thousand year cooling period. This was one of the Earth’s largest known eruptions ever and caused the human population of Earth to decline dramatically. The volcano is located at Lake Toba on the island of Sumatra, in Indonesia. Its grand eruption was even bigger than the giant Yellowstone eruption 2.2 million years ago, and threw 2,800 cubic kilometres of volcanic ash and lava into the atmosphere. Indonesia is a very densely populated country, and 50 million people live in Toba’s shadow and would be immediately affected by another event, and in addition it is located only 40km from the Indian Ocean, close to where the recent catastrophic tsunami was generated. Share this everywhere.

That said, it’s good basic information and also features the Campi Flegrei supervolcano which just went under high alert.

Fuego volcano activity intensifies; Guatemala issues danger warning

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.

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.
