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

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

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

Mount Fuego Volcano seems to be spewing ash into the Milky Way

IMG_0235.JPGStunning photos have emerged of an erupting volcano appearing to spew clouds of ash into the Milky Way above. Dutch photographer Albert Dros camped out under the stars to get the perfect shot of Fuego Volcano in Guatemala as lava was spurting out of its crater. The 31-year-old said he was ‘paralysed with awe’ as he watched ash clouds drift up into the night sky – almost appearing to merge into the stars.  Fuego stands 12,346 ft overlooking Guatemala’s former capital, Antigua, and erupts multiple times a day. ‘Erupting lava is best visible in evening and night, so I was obviously going for that,’ Dros said. ‘But when I finally saw Fuego erupt up close, combined with the power of its sound, I was paralysed with awe. It was amazing and was one of the most impressive things I had ever seen in nature. The real show started as it got darker, Fuego kept erupting and the glowing lava finally became visible. The sight of an erupting volcano is something I was only used to seeing in movies, it was surreal.’More Photos
