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.

Etna Volcano Activity in Italy on Monday, 30 January, 2017

etna

Schools in Sicily were evacuated on Monday after the island’s active volcano, Mount Etna, experienced a flurry of quakes. Seismic experts at Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology (Ingv) registered more than 60 tremors on Monday morning – the most significant measuring at least 3.5 magnitude, at 10:51am.

The quakes began shortly after 6am, and five have measured over 3.0 in magnitude. Local authorities have alerted residents to the series of tremors, which have had their epicentre between Ragalna and Monte San Leo, at around 14km deep.

Ingv said there was “nothing unusual” about the volcanic activity, and there have not been any reports of damage to buildings or any injuries caused by the quakes. In the towns of Ragalna, Nicolosi and Bronte on the south side of the volcano, schoolchildren were evacuated on Monday morning as a precaution. Etna, nestled between the cities of Messina and Catania, is Europe’s most active and highest volcano and Italy’s highest peak south of the Alps.

Together with Mount Vesuvius near Naples, it is one of 16 volcanoes in the world designated as ‘Decade Volcanoes’ by the UN, which means that they are studied particularly closely due to the frequency of activity and density of nearby population.

It is in a near-constant state of activity, and striking video footage from the past week shows the snow-covered peak sending out clouds of smoke.
