Volanic Unrest Worldwide: Strong Eruption at Sakurajima volcano, pyroclastic flow, ashfall reported in Kagoshima, Japan

Posted in 2018, Earthquakes, Volcanoes with tags , , , , on June 17, 2018 by theboldcorsicanflame



There were eight events and five explosions at Minamidake crater from June 4 to 11. Crater incandescence was occasionally visible at night. Ash plumes rose up to 2 km (1.2 miles) above the crater rim, except during an event at 11:35 JST on June 10 which produced a plume that rose 3.5 km (2.1 miles). Tephra was ejected as far as 1.3 km (0.8 miles) from the crater between June 8 and 11.

The Japan Meteorological Agency maintains the alert level at 3 of 5 since February 5, 2016.

Solar storms and a range of other space energy contributors modulate the Schumann Resonance

Posted in 2018, Earthquakes, Extreme Weather, Galaxy with tags , on March 19, 2018 by theboldcorsicanflame

Reader’s question: Historically, does this coincide with solar storms? Solar storms and a range of other space energy contributors modulate the SR. A gamma ray burst significantly changed the SRs in 2004 Dez 27th, (the day after the Indian Ocean Tsunami.) The SRs have been monitored since the late 1960’s, thus the long-term connections are […]

Iceland: Bardarbunga is rumbling again. 4 earthquakes have been detected in the surrounding area

Posted in 2017, Earthquakes, Uncategorized with tags , , on November 2, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame



Bardarbunga is rumbling again. Iceland’s biggest volcano has been on the verge of erupting for a good few years now, but over the past few days, four earthquakes have been detected in the surrounding area.

While this Earth shimmying might seem concerning, they are more indicative of what is happening beneath the ground, and won’t themselves cause the volcano to erupt. For now, there isn’t any cause for immediate concern.

The experts monitoring the mountain, which is the second-highest peak in Iceland and last erupted in 2014, still predict that it could be up to another few years before the volcano spews its magma over the Nordic nation.

Some are concerned that if and when this happens, there could be a repeat of the infamous 2010 Icelandic eruption. The ash cloud produced by the wonderfully named Eyjafjallajokull, which is estimated to have been around 250 million cubic meters (8.8 billion cubic feet), wreaked havoc across much of Europe. For five days, much of the airspace was shut down, as there were concerns that the ash could seriously damage the engines of any planes caught flying through it.

This created what is thought to have been the largest disruption of air travel since World War II. Earthquakes around active volcanoes are a common occurrence. As the magma below the surface migrates into the chamber of the volcano, the movement of such massive amounts of molten rock inevitably cause the ground to wobble a bit. From this perspective then, the earthquakes are not the cause of the eruption, but instead seen as a symptom of the impending blast that could occur at any point within years.

When it comes to Iceland, there are always going to be reports that an eruption is imminent. This is because Iceland is straddling the fault line between the American and Eurasian plates, thus making it a particular hotspot. It will always have volcanoes, as magma snakes its way through the fissure and eventually bursts through the surface, but few actually do as much damage as Eyjafjallajokull. If the volcano happens to be sitting under a glacier, than the chances are heightened, but even so, one study has already suggested that such an event is unlikely to happen for a few decades……(so they say…)


Roads in Mexico City have begun OUT-GASSING . . . They appear to be breathing

Posted in 2017, Earthquakes with tags , , on September 24, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

Mexicans are in EXTREME DANGER of another, even larger earthquake than the massive M7.1 which struck south of Mexico City earlier this week.

Roads in the area have begun OUT-GASSING . . . They appear to be Breathing . . . meaning the earth below is being squeezed so hard, it is venting gas from deep in the earth.

Incredible Rare Footage of Mexico Earthquake. Looks like English movie scene but this is real amazing video .

A powerful earthquake jolted Mexico City on Tuesday 19-09-2017, seriously damaging buildings and sending people fleeing into the streets on the anniversary of a 1985 quake that did major damage to the capital. Mexico City

4 of Iceland’s main volcanoes: katla, Hekla, Grímsvötn and Bárðarbunga are all preparing for eruption

According to geophysicist Páll Einarsson, four of Iceland’s volcanoes are showing increased amounts of activity in preparation for another eruption. 

Katla is the most active that it’s ever been in four decades. “Katla has been unrestful since this autumn.”

The other volcanoes showing increased activity are Hekla, Grímsvötn and Bárðarbunga. 




Iceland is a volcanic island sitting on top of the Atlantic ridge and Icelanders are constantly reminded of that. Yesterday the farmers and summer cottage owners in the inland of south Iceland clearly felt a 4.5 magnitude earthquake originated in the domain of an active volcano.

One farmer in the area described the earthquake as if a truck hit her farm to a RUV reporter, the family clearly felt a single strong impact and they ran straight to the window to check on their neighbour, the volcano named Hekla.

According to measurements the current pressure in the magma chambers underneath Hekla volcano is greater than it was leading up to the last two eruptions in 1991 and 2000. The pressure has been mounting for quite some time and there have been numerous predictions and speculations about a looming eruption.

The pressure clearly points to the volcano being ready to erupt but it’s hard to say what the tipping point will be. The earthquake yesterday doesn’t have a direct link to the pressure under Hekla Volcano but evidently something is brewing under the crust of south Iceland judging by the pressure in the magma chamber and the number of tremors and earthquakes taking place there in the past months.
