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.

Life on Tristan da Cunha – the World’s Most Remote Inhabited Island

Watch the three-part Britain’s Treasure Islands documentary series on BBC FOUR, starting Tue 12 Apr 2016 21:00. (repeated Wed 13 Apr 2016 20:00).

This mini-documentary follows Stewart McPherson’s journey to Tristan da Cunha, the most remote inhabited island in the world. We meet the Tristanians and an interview with ex-chief islander Harold Green reveals what life is like in Tristan’s only settlement, Edinburgh of the Seven Seas.

HAWAII: Lava Fire Hose Continues As Surface Flows Crawl Downslope (Feb. 26, 2017)


Note: Pele’s alive and well on the Big Island, this amazing event is happening just 20 miles south of my home.

Lava flow is how new land is created for future generations to survive and thrive 🙂

Alaska’s Cleveland Volcano Erupts

One of Alaska’s most active volcanoes has started erupting, according to the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO).

The 1,730 m (5,676 ft) high Cleveland Volcano, also known as Mount Cleveland, began erupting early on Tuesday. However, the stratovolcano’s remoteness is limiting opportunities for its study, reported the AVO which is relying heavily on satellites for monitoring.

According to the AVO: “Without a real-time seismic network on the volcano, AVO is unable to track local earthquake activity related to volcanic unrest, provide forecasts of eruptive activity, or confirmation of explosive, ash-producing events. AVO is monitoring the volcano using satellite data as it becomes available. Such data suggests that effusive eruption of the lava dome in the summit crater is possibly continuing.”

One of the most active volcanoes in the Aleutian Arc, Cleveland has erupted at least 21 times in the last 230 years. A VEI 3 eruption in 1944 produced the arc’s only direct volcanic fatality. Most recently Mount Cleveland has erupted three times in 2009, and twice in 2010.

The volcano is primarily hazardous to aircraft; many of the flights over the north Pacific approach the vicinity of the volcano, and volcanic ash released from eruptions can damage sensitive electronic equipment and sensors.

The formation of the lava dome is consistent with thermal anomalies observed in satellite imagery since July 19, 2011. This dome is approximately 60 m in diameter in a 200m-wide crater.

Increased activity reported at Colima volcano in Mexico


July 15, 0211MEXICO – The Colima Volcano is currently one of the most active volcanoes in Mexico and in North America. It has erupted more than 40 times since 1576. Despite its name, only a fraction of the volcano’s surface area is in the state of Colima; the majority of its surface area lies over the border in the neighboring state of Jalisco, toward the western end of the Eje Volcánico Transversal mountain range. It is about 485 km (301 mi) west of Mexico City and 125 km (78 mi) south of Guadalajara, Jalisco. There are two peaks in the volcano complex: Nevado de Colima (4330 m), which is older and inactive, lies 5 kilometers north of the younger and very active 3860 metre Volcán de Colima (also called Volcán de Fuego de Colima). Since 1869-1878, a parasitic set of domes, collectively known as El Volcancito, have formed on the northeast flank of the main cone of the volcano. The last eruption of the volcano was in 2010. –Wikipedia
Mexican news foroTV mentions today Colima volcano awakes today and breaks 10 meters of its dome causing several landslides.

Ecuador’s Tungurahua volcano unleashes violent explosion


April 30, 2011 – Banos, Ecuador — Tungurahua Volcano spews ash as high as 10km (33,000-feet) into the air, triggering residents to evacuate and officials to divert flights. Known as “Throat of Fire,” Tungurahua is one of eight active volcanoes in Ecuador.  Ecuador’s “Throat of Fire” volcano erupted today spewing ash that forced hundreds of residents to flee, authorities said. Loud explosions shook the ground and rattled windows near the volcano, known as Tungurahua in the indigenous Quechua language, 81 miles southeast of Quito, officials said. Vulcanologist Silvana Hidalgo said scientists are carefully monitoring the situation and have detected a small dip in activity. “In these last few hours, what we’ve registered is a small decrease in volcanic activity regarding the energy with which the columns are expelled,” she said. Officials in the area said hundreds of families had evacuated, some voluntarily, while Ecuador’s aviation authorities closed the airport in coastal Guayaquil and altered the routes of some flights to avoid the ash cloud. Baños, a town popular with foreign and local tourists, was among the places evacuated voluntarily, officials said. Tungurahua, a 16,500 ft volcano, has been classed as active since 1999 and had a strong eruption in 2008. It is one of eight active volcanoes in Ecuador. –Dig Triad
Update: Eruptions growing more violent- Ecuador’s Tungurahua volcano hurled lorry-sized pyroclastic boulders more than a mile in a powerful eruption that prompted at least 300 people to flee their homes, authorities said. “The smallest blocks are that size of an automobile while the biggest reach the size of a truck, which cause impact craters up to 10 meters (33 feet) wide as they hit the flanks,” the scientist, Silvana Hidalgo, told The Associated Press. Schools were closed for a third straight day as ash showered down on a dozen towns in the sparsely populated area surrounding the 16,480-foot volcano. Thundering explosions could be heard miles from Tungurahua, which is on the Andes cordillera 84 miles southeast of Ecuador’s capital, Quito. –Daily Mail

Pacific Northwest – MORE MAGMA movement and VOLCANIC SEISMIC ACTIVITY – Collapsed Subdivision back in the news


From Dutch, March 23, 2011

The subdivision in Everett, Washington up in the Pacific Northwest appears to be collapsing into a FISSURE  and i’s now back in the news again.

Signs of activity are popping up in the PNW – Washington State, Mt St. Helen’s, Mt. Rainier and Seattle.
