    The volcanic eruption on the island of La Palma has been ongoing for nearly a week and has forced thousands to flee and destroyed hundreds of properties due to its massive lava flow. However, as photos show, at least one property miraculously remains standing. A miraculous sight was photographed on the Spanish island of El Palma where the Cumbre Vieja volcano has been erupting and spewing lava for nearly a week. Hundreds of homes were devoured by the fast-flowing lava, but somehow, some way, at least one was left standing all by its lonesome. Ada Monnikendam, who built the house...

    Creating one of the most spectacular and surreal scenes in recent times, a blazing meteorite unexpectedly fell from the sky and crashed into Indonesia’s Mount Merapi volcano. The historical event occurred on May 27, when it was caught on a CCTV camera at Megadata facility in Kalitengah Kidul, Jogjakarta which is where the mountain is located. Luckily, at the same time, a local Indonesian identified as Gunarto Song was also taking photos of Mount Merapi volcano and caught the meteor in all its glory. Speaking to Indonesian Media outlet Kumparan later, he said that he took the photos from a...

    The eruption of an underwater volcano near South Iwo Jima sent a plume soaring into flight paths and created an expansive raft of floating rock. Over the past decade, the Japan Coast Guard has occasionally spotted patches of milky blue water about 5 kilometers (3 miles) north of South Iwo Jima island. The discolored water has been a subtle reminder that the summit of an active volcano—Fukutoku-Okanoba—lurks about 25 meters (80 feet) below the water surface. On August 13, 2021, there was much more than just discolored water. A photograph taken by a Coast Guard aircraft flying near the volcano...
  • Ancient ashes reveal details of huge volcano

    06/04/2018 9:55:30 AM PDT · by BBell · 19 replies
    Archaeologists have discovered ashes from one of the biggest ever volcanic eruptions in recorded history. Excavations in Turkey’s ancient city of Smyrna, now located in Izmir, have revealed details from a Minoan eruption that took place some 3,600 years ago. Smyrna was established about 5,000 years ago by the Greek tribe of Aeolians and later inhabited by Ionians. It was mostly abandoned after it was captured by the Anatolian kingdom of Lydia in the 6th century B.C. Archaeologists say the ashes will tell them a lot about the history. “Now that we have identified those ashes with a more extensive...
  • 3 Alaska volcanoes erupt, spitting lava and ash clouds, just days after a massive M8.2 earthquake

    Three remote Alaska volcanoes are in various states of eruption, one producing lava and the other two blowing steam and ash. This is happening about 1 week after a M8.2 earthquake shook wide parts of Alaska on July 28, 2021. So far, none of the small communities near the volcanoes have been affected, Chris Waythomas, a geologist with the Alaska Volcano Observatory, said Thursday. Webcams on Thursday clearly showed episodic low-level ash emissions from Pavlof Volcano, prompting the observatory to raise the volcano’s threat level from yellow, or exhibiting signs of unrest, to orange, indicating an eruption is underway with...
  • Invisible bursts of electricity from volcanoes signal explosive eruptions

    As one of Japan’s most active volcanoes, Sakurajima often dazzles with spectacular displays of volcanic lightning set against an ash-filled sky. But the volcano can also produce much smaller, invisible bursts of electrical activity that mystify and intrigue scientists. Now, an analysis of 97 explosions at Sakurajima from June 2015 is helping to show when eruptions produce visible lightning strokes versus when they produce the mysterious, unseen surges of electrical activity, researchers report in the June 16 Geophysical Research Letters. These invisible bursts, called vent discharges, happen early in eruptions, which could allow scientists to figure out ways to use...

    Days after a deadly eruption of Mount Nyiragongo in Democratic Republic of Congo, the threat of another eruption forced the evacuation of much of the city of Goma. But that ended up in a traffic chaos… Tens of thousands of residents tried to escape the major city in the Democratic Republic of Congo on Thursday, after authorities issued an evacuation order warning that Mount Nyiragongo could erupt again. People jammed highways, crowded boats and set off on foot to flee this major African city on Thursday, seeking an escape from the rumbling threat of Mount Nyiragongo, one of the world’s...

    aska has been in the headlines in recent days after its Great Sitkin volcano erupted last week. Last Thursday, the US Geological Survey said a red warning had been raised – indicating that significant emission of volcanic ash into the atmosphere is likely. The Alaska Volcano Observatory said a "short-duration" explosive eruption of one-two minutes occurred at 5:04 GMT on Thursday, resulting in an ash cloud up to 15,000 feet above sea level. They added: "Since that explosion, seismicity has decreased and satellite images show that the ash cloud has detached from the vent and is moving towards the east."...

    In the early hours of Wednesday morning (GMT), Alaska’s Great Sitkin volcano erupted, prompting the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) to set the volcano alert level to a warning. The authority has also raised the aviation color code to red. An AVO and US Geological Survey (USGS) volcanic activity notice read: “A short-duration (1-2 minutes) explosive eruption began at 21:04 AKDT (5:04 UTC 26 May), resulting in an ash cloud up to 15,000 ft asl. “Since that explosion, seismicity has decreased and satellite images show that the ash cloud has detached from the vent and is moving towards the east. “Additional...
  • Here’s What Would Happen If Yellowstone’s Supervolcano Blew

    Volcanoes have been a hot topic lately. Especially in regards to their ability to swallow and melt defenseless camera drones. But what would happen if a “supervolcano” were to blow? YouTuber RealLifeLore gives us some sense of that nightmare scenario with a hypothetical look at what would happen if the Yellowstone Supervolcano in Wyoming were to erupt. And yes, it would indeed be very bad.
  • Three Volcanoes erupt at the Same Time in Guatemala

    Guatemala’s three most active volcanoes have magnificently erupted simultaneously. The last time the phenomenon occurred was in 2018. That event took the lives of hundreds of locals when communities were hit by gas, ash, and rock. Volcanoes are explicitly mentioned by the prophets as playing a role in the end of days, preparing the world by burning away impurities as a crucible is used in metallurgy to purify metal. This process is described in Zechariah. And I will bring the third part through the fire and will refine them as silver is refined and will try them as gold is...
  • Taal volcano prepares for its next big blast after 212 earthquakes hit and release large quantities of gas in the Philippines

    The Taal Volcano is preparing its next big eruption, said the state-run Philippine Institute for Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) on Wednesday. Within the last 24 hours, the volcano in Batangas province registered 212 quakes, including 168 tremors with durations one to 20 minutes, and 44 low frequency volcanic earthquakes were recorded. The volcanic peak also emitted more gas over the past 24 hours – some 1,229 tons of sulfur dioxide. These are signs of a looming eruption: “The fact that we have volcanic tremors and prolonged background tremor recorded, higher than normal sulfur dioxide emission rate of 923 tons per...

    A powerful explosive eruption took place at La Soufriere volcano, St. Vincent and the Grenadines at 12:41 UTC (08:41 LT) on April 9, 2021, producing an ash column that rose up to 12 km (40 000 feet) above sea level. This is a culmination of the seismic activity that began on April 8. Ashfall was reported on the flanks of the volcano and surrounding communities, including Chateaubelair and Petite Bordel. Ash cloud to 3.3 km (11 100 feet) a.s.l. is moving WNW and to 12.2 km (40 000 feet) a.s.l. to ENE, the Washington VAAC said at 18:11 UTC. A...

    The catastrophic impact of Vesuvius effectively froze the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in time, like insects trapped in amber. This has provided archaeologists with unique insights into the lives of those living in the shadow of the volcano thousands of years ago. The opportunity to actually walk around an ancient city, almost as it was, allows us to connect with our past in tangible ways.The scientific study of the remains of victims of Vesuvius are, however, not without controversy. Until very recently, the prevailing theory was that the heat and force of the pyroclastic flow pouring out of Vesuvius...

    Scientists from the USGS Alaska Volcano Observatory worked with researchers from the University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute to investigate the cause. They found the meteor over Alaska about 40 miles from the Athabaskan community of Kaltag, which is located on the Yukon River. In a blog post for the American Geophysical Union, UAF science journalist Ned Rozell said witnesses had reported the fireball in regions hundreds of miles apart. One resident of Ruby described it as a “huge ball of light in the sky” moving from north to south. Another resident said it looked like “fireworks” that split into...
