Largest volcanic region on Earth with 91 volcanoes found under Antarctica

IMG_0514.JPGWith the volcanic peak ranging from 100m to 3,850m in height, this is the largest volcanic region on Earth.  With its 91 volcanoes under Antarctica ice, geologists say the newly discovered volcanic range has similarities to east Africa’s volcanic ridge, currently acknowledged to be the densest concentration of volcanoes in the world. The 91 volcanic peaks situated in the West Antarctic Rift system were discovered during a remote survey made by researchers from the University of Edinburgh. But it is still unknown if the volcanoes are active. Antarctica remains among the least studied areas of the globe. Maybe we will soon discover what is the cause of the mysterious wave anomalies coming from the icy continent……Read More

West Coast Seismic Alert: 2 Alaskan Volcanoes Erupt As Earthquake Swarms At Mount St. Helens Raise Concerns

Volcano-Erupting-Full-Moon-Public-DomainMount St. Helens, Mount Rainier and Mount Hood are all major volcanoes that lie along the infamous “Ring of Fire” that runs down the west coast of the United States, and all of the seismic activity that has been taking place in the region has many concerned about what may happen next.  Earlier this month, I wrote about how 45 earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 or greater hit Alaska in just one 24 hour period.  This week, it is volcanic activity that is raising concerns.  The earthquake swarms at Mount St. Helens are making headlines all over the globe, and on Tuesday two major volcanoes in Alaska suddenly erupted on the exact same day…..Read More

BIG ONE WARNING: New Zealand in store for ‘EXTREME’ earthquake as fault lines collide

NZ_faultsThe Oceanic country is still coming to terms with the damage caused by the 2011 6.3 magnitude earthquake in Christchurch which claimed the lives of almost 200 people. Researchers are now warning New Zealanders to brace themselves for a quake which could measure 8.0 on the Richter Scale in the coming years. The experts behind the study say that a collision between the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates – a 500 kilometre stretch known as the Alpine Fault – takes place every 300 years or so, with the last one happening in 1717. When the collision does happen, the fault will rupture in “an extreme magnitude 8 earthquake in the coming decades”, the team from the Vitoria University of Wellington wrote in their study published in Nature……Read More

Bogoslof volcano Alaska spews ash and steam 34,000 feet into the sky bringing threat to airliners operating between North America and Asia

IMG_0330.JPGTuesday night and spewed ash for more than an hour. The Alaska Volcano Observatory says Bogoslof (BOH-gohs-lawf) Volcano erupted at 10:32 p.m. and continued for 73 minutes. A pilot reported the eruption produced an ash cloud that reached 34,000 feet and the observatory issued a warning to pilots. Wind pushed the cloud southwest. Ash from southwest Alaska volcanos is a threat to airliners operating between North America and Asia when a cloud rises above 20,000 feet. Ash can harm and stop jet engines. Bogoslof has been erupting periodically since mid-December. The observatory says additional explosions producing high-altitude ash could occur at any time. The volcano is 850 miles southwest of Anchorage in the Aleutian Islands. Home. Read More

Eastern Half Of ‘Ring Of Fire’ Comes Alive As ‘A Very Bad Sign’ Appears In The Pacific Ocean – Inbound CME And Full Moon Arrive On May 10th

ring_of_fire_outlineA visit to the live earthquake map ast the Global Indidents report finds much of the entire eastern half of the ring of fire littered with quakes over the past 24 hours as seen in the screenshot above with two large ones just southwest of the long dormant Tanaga Volcano in Alaska headlining the recent string of quakes. As Strange Sounds reports in this recent story, the Tanaga volcanic complex hasn’t erupted in more than a hundred years, dating all the way back to 1914, are these latest eruptions more signs that a major quake is in our future? The new story over at CBS Evening News reports shark attacks along the California coastline are on the rise with increasing numbers of shark sightings recently, most of them young great whites according to their story…….Read More

Russia Warns of Mega Earthquake Coming – Scientists Warn of Looming U.S. West Coast Big One

IMG_0271President Putin has deployed Russian troops in the Eastern Military District to prepare for what could be a series of devastating earthquakes and tsunamis to hit the Kamchatka peninsula . He has also issued a warning that a much bigger ‘megaquake’ could strike the United States northwestern Pacific Ocean region . The deployment was prompted by an “urgent warning” sent to the Security Council over the weekend by scientist Mehran Keshe, who warned that the 5.8 earthquake that struck the Kingdom of Tonga signalled that the Pacific Plate is preparing for a “catastrophic new alignment”. Doctor-Scientist Keshe is the inventor of “magrav technology” (Western code name code name “Khibiny”) used by Federation military forces in their secretive defense weapons used to cripple American warships like was done against the USS Donald Cook this past week……..Read More

Underwater volcano “Kick ’em Jenny” Update: Cluster of almost 50 quakes cause 5 km/3.1 mile exclusion zone: Further eruptions expected with fears of tsunami.

IMG_0254.JPGThe University of the West Indies (UWI) Seismic Research Centre (SRC) is monitoring increased activity at underwater volcano Kick ’em Jenny following scores of eruption over the past few days, but it says there’s no tsunami threat so far. The Trinidad-based SRC said the first eruption at the region’s only submarine volcano – which is located about five miles north of Grenada – occurred on Saturday around 5:45 pm, with reports of it being felt in St Patrick’s, Grenada. In its update yesterday, Grenada’s National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) said at least 43 “mostly low magnitudes volcanic earthquakes” – in the magnitude range of 1.5 to 2.3 – had occurred between that first tremor and 10:41 a.m. yesterday…….Read More
