Hmmmmmmmm....
Philippine Volcano Bulusan Ejects Ash, Threatens Villagers
Sunday, June 18, 2006
MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines' restive Mount Bulusan spewed ash and small rocks in a new explosion Sunday, prompting army troops and authorities to evacuate nearly 100 residents from one ash-hit village because of health concerns, officials said.

With the new ash explosion, Bulusan's eighth since March, Filipino scientists said they would evaluate anew the possibility of a major eruption.

Renato Solidum, director of the Philippine Institute of Seismology and Volcanology, said the explosion belched ash up to 1.2 miles into the sky. Scientists said they needed to gather more details and possibly conduct a second aerial survey of Bulusan's summit in a week before they can evaluate the prospects of a major eruption.

A number of mild tremors accompanied the blast of ash, officials said.

Bulusan's recent ash and gas ejections indicate molten rocks called magma may be moving up within the volcano but it remains to be seen whether it would lead to a major eruption, Solidum said.

"It's possible, that's why we're monitoring," he told The Associated Press by telephone.

Wind was blowing ash from the mid-afternoon explosion to the northwest toward the farming towns of Casiguran and Juban, which have been grappling with volcanic ash and fears of a major eruption since the 5,149-foot volcano came back to life in March.

Its last major eruption was in 1994.

"It was a loud blast, there are small rocks and it's getting dark," Casiguran Mayor Edwin Hamor said by mobile phone as he rushed by car to a village in the path of falling ash.

In Juban, army and government trucks evacuated nearly 100 children and adults from the village of Puting Sapa to a school building away from the volcano due to health concerns, said Noel Pura, a local disaster-response official.

Puting Sapa was hit by thick ash and villagers there asked officials to move them to a temporary evacuation site because of the strong sulfuric stench. Male villagers were left behind to guard houses and the evacuated residents could return home Monday, Pura said.

Separately, about 40 farming families that had refused to leave their homes within a 2.5-mile radius of the crater that has been designated a permanent danger zone have agreed to move to a temporary relocation site or to houses of relatives starting Monday, Hamor said.

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo inspected Casiguran and other towns Saturday and ordered local officials to ensure villagers are moved away from dangerous areas due to the possibility of a major eruption.

Bulusan is about 240 miles southeast of Manila.

The Philippines, which has about 22 active volcanoes, is in the Pacific "Ring of Fire," where volcanic activity and earthquakes are common.

Expert Warns Of Earthquake In New Madrid Zone

An earthquake expert with the U.S. Geological Survey says many residents and officials in northeast Arkansas are underestimating how bad a quake on the New Madrid Fault could be.

Gary Patterson, who is based at the University of Memphis, says that unlike faults in California, the New Madrid Seismic Zone contains three to five major fault segments lying over the top of each other in a relatively small area.

The zone stretches from northeast Arkansas and northwest Tennessee up into southeast Missouri, far western Kentucky and southern Illinois.

Patterson says the nature of the soil and the fault itself make for the potential of catastrophic damage from a quake that registers even as low as a six-point-five magnitude.

More on the WAVE!!!

Strong waves hit Central American coast

Tuesday, June 20, 2006; Posted: 12:53 p.m. EDT (16:53 GMT)

MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) -- A South Pacific storm sent waves crashing into Central America up to 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) across the ocean, destroying at least 20 homes in Nicaragua and a small hotel in Guatemala, civil defense authorities said Tuesday.

There were no reports of deaths.

Experts said the event was not a tsunami, the massive waves triggered by undersea earthquakes.

Hugh Cobb, a meteorologist with the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, said the waves were caused by a strong South Pacific storm that was sending up to 12-foot (4-meter) swells across the Pacific, affecting coastlines from Ecuador's Galapagos Islands to the Mexican resort of Acapulco.

Beaches were closed as far south as northern Chile, but no damage was reported there.

Central America was the hardest hit Tuesday, but Cobb said the waves should begin to subside and the worst was over.

"They should start coming down over the next several days," he said. "We expect them to gradually subside over the next 24 to 48 hours."

Authorities ordered 200 people evacuated in Nicaragua, where 15-foot (4.5 meter) waves surged 100 yards (meters) up the shore and claimed about 20 homes in Puerto Corinto, on the country's western coast, civil defense official William Rodriguez said.

Nicaragua's government sent 75 troops, firefighters and rescue workers to carry out evacuations.

In Guatemala, waves of up to 13 feet (4 meters) destroyed a hotel frequented by surfers in Sipacate, 60 miles (100 kilometers) southeast of Guatemala City, employees said.

"The sea took away eight rooms and part of the restaurant, which was made of wood," said Brigido de Paz, the hotel manager. "The kitchen and the rooms that were made of concrete are flooded and damaged."

Dozens also were evacuated in El Salvador, where waves up to 20 feet (6 meters) were reported and many fishermen stayed out of the water, while in Costa Rica 12-foot (3.6-meter) waves caused minor flooding in several coastal communities, but there were no reports of damage, said Omar Lizano, an oceanographer at Costa Rica's Research Center for Ocean Sciences.

In Mexico, 7-foot (2.1 meter) waves flooded the boardwalk for 2 miles (4 kilometers) along Acapulco's Coastal Avenue and left beachfront restaurants and nightclubs standing in water.

Jorge Pacheco, director of civil protection in Acapulco, said the strong waves began hitting Monday, and officials were issuing warnings to stay out of the ocean.

In Mexico's Oaxaca state, officials said high waves washed away thatched beach huts.

A new volcano was found. Guess what it's name is? Empedocles! How weird is that. Here is the article.

Volcano larger than Washington, D.C., discovered

Thursday, June 22, 2006; Posted: 1:30 p.m. EDT (17:30 GMT)


ROME, Italy (Reuters) -- An underwater volcano with a base larger than Washington, D.C., has been discovered just off the shores of Sicily, a scientist with Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology said on Thursday.

The volcanic structure, which incorporates peaks previously thought to be separate volcanoes, was named Empedocles after the Greek philosopher who named the four classic elements of earth, air, fire and water.

Legend has it that the philosopher died by throwing himself into Mount Etna, the nearby Sicilian volcano.

Giovanni Lanzafame, who works at the institute and led the research, said Empedocles was at least 400 meters (1,300 feet) high -- taller than the Eiffel Tower.

He said the base of the structure was 30 km (18.6 miles) long and 25 km wide, spanning an area larger than the U.S. capital and making it Italy's largest underwater volcano.

But Lanzafame said Sicilians did not need to worry about the sleeping Empedocles. "At this point, there's no imminent danger of an eruption," he told Reuters.

Lanzafame and another official said the volcano had numerous fumaroles, openings in the Earth's crust that emit steam and gases, like the ones at Yellowstone National Park in the United States. But they described it as largely inactive.

The identification of Empedocles came during research into the submerged volcanic island of Ferdinandea just off Sicily's southern coast. Often held to be the tip of a small volcano, Lanzafame said it was just a part of Empedocles.

Volcanic activity has raised the island out of the sea several times in recorded history, with underwater eruptions first described during the first Punic War of 264-241 B.C.

Its emergence in 1831 caused months of international wrangling, with several nations making territorial claims before it submerged again. It is now about 7 meters below the surface of the water.

Cesare Corselli, president of the National Inter-University Consortium for Marine Science, which helped with the research, said previously the volcanic centers had been seen as separate.

"People used to think that there were small centres of emission, distant from each other," he said.

"The hypothesis made by Mr. Lanzafame is that this is a singular volcano that, like alongside Etna as an example, can have a central eruption or a series of lateral eruptions."

Lanzafame said he had been working on the theory about the Empedocles's existence for more than a year before being able to confirm it with new survey equipment.

Ah, I'm back from vacation and here's a little update....

Ngauruhoe rumbles with activity-New Zealand
Jun 25, 2006

Scientists in the central North Island are keeping a close eye on Mount Ngauruhoe after an increasing number of earthquakes.

The volcano has been largely silent since it last blew in 1975. But for the past two weeks, Ngauruhoe, which is located in a chain of volcanoes that sit in Tongariro National Park, has been showing signs of activity.

"These are the initial signs that something is happening and it may just be that these earthquakes just die away and that'll be it. Or they may increase," says GNS volcano geophysicist Craig miller.

This does not necessarily mean an eruption is imminent - the mountain is at alert level one on a scale of up to five - but scientists are regularly checking seismic stations around the mountain.

Ngauruhoe's neighbour Mount Ruapehu is also being monitored.

Scientists say a build-up of debris in its crater lake could cause a lahar (mud flow) as early as next summer.

"A lahar is just a volcanic mudflow basically, water flowing in this case out of the crater lake down the Whangaehu River which is the outlet for the lake, and as it does it'll be picking up mud debris boulders anything else that's in its path," says DOC community relations officer Dave Wakelin.

The last major lahar on record was that which caused the Tangiwai disaster in 1953 after it took out the rail bridge at Tangiwai, killing 151 train passengers.

There are currently early detection systems in place, scientific monitoring and emergency response plans to reduce the effects of any potential future risks.

Wonder if that part of alaska is always crazy ... or is part of the activity due to melting permafrost.

This would be bearing in mind I don't know beans about Alaska except ist has be nuts lately.

Montserrat increases volcanic alert level


Authorities in Montserrat increased the volcanic alert level on the island on Monday following increased seismic activity over the weekend.

The Soufriere Hills Volcano roared to life in 1995 after years of being dormant.

Last month, the lava dome of the volcano collapsed causing mud flows and surges along the north-east flank of the island.

A statement issued by the Montserrat Volcano Observatory a short while ago warned that the increased seismic activity could lead to the possibility of serious eruptive activity that could affect some inhabited areas.

The statement said that due to this increase in seismic activity and the corresponding increase in the alert level, entry into St Georges' Hill during the day time "is closed until further notice".

Montserrat now at volcano level 4 alert
Wednesday, June 28, 2006

by Karen ‘Lioness’ Allen
Caribbean Net News Montserrat Correspondent

BRADES, Montserrat: Scientists at the Montserrat Volcano Observatory (MVO) have reported that there is an ongoing swarm of volcanic earthquakes at shallow depths, “the likes of which have not been seen at the MVO for years.”

On Monday, June 26, 2006, the Governor’s Office released a press statement stating that Montserrat’s authorities have increased the volcanic alert to level 4.

According to the statement, “This comes in the wake of increased seismic activity this past weekend, which is still ongoing.” This reported seismic activity increases the possibility of serious eruptive activity that could affect some inhabited areas.

This reported ongoing swarm of volcanic earthquakes could possibly lead to a dome collapse or explosive events. It is because of this exact reason that the volcanic alert level on Montserrat has been increased.

Due to this recent increase in the volcanic alert level, St. George’s Hill, located in the Day Time Entry Zone, is closed until further notice. After a meeting at the Governor’s Office on June 26, 2006, the Emergency Policy Group decided to close St. George’s Hill.

As detailed by the Governor’s Office, “This means that there should be no entry to this area at all until further notice.” The office went on to advise, “Anyone entering points south of the Belham Valley, other than Iles Bay Hill, should, for their own safety and as a precaution, register at the Salem Police Station before crossing the Belham Valley.”

Residents of Iles Bay Hill were further reminded that they should not attempt to cross the Belham Valley during heavy rain or increased volcanic activity.

For those residents of Salem, a highly populated village living close to the boundaries of the exclusion zone, there is no change in risk levels. The level of risk associated with this area is currently categorized as low on the Chief Medical Officer’s Scale.

Director of the MVO, Dr. Sue Loughlin, says that as usual it is hard to predict exactly what will be the outcome of this current increase in volcanic activity. As a result, the MVO is monitoring this increased activity closely.

Residents of Montserrat are paying keen attention to the Soufriére Hills Mountain to find out what will come of this ongoing swarm of shallow volcano tectonic earthquakes.

I'm telling you people, I think there's something big going on under the Earth's crust. These volcanoes are only beginning to let us know what's up - it's going to get worse. Anybody who lives in lava paths needs to move yesterday.

Morgaine ...

I agree totally ... the sky has been getting more and more bizarre since they began spraying it a few (several) years ago. I heard Scott Stephens say he was too young to know what real clouds look like ... I am not.

If you want to see what clouds are supposed to look like, go back and view black and white movies like "On The Beach" ... Gregory Peck.

When my generation (59) dies off ... people will no longer know what clouds are supposed to look like. Plus ... they have made sure the trails are in all movies and TV so that it appears normal.

These attempts to control and alter the weather have been moving along for 30 years ... very slowly ...

Take heed ... energy is being injected into the crust of the earth and whether by accident or intentional ... volcanoes and quakes will be "teased" into activity.

Why ... the same ole same ole ... the grand plan.

Hi Granny and All,
Speaking of the new generation not knowing what real clouds look like, I guess not too long ago (before all the pollution) the night time sky had a purple tinge to it. Not the black we see, it was purplish. I've heard some old timer's say this and I have read it. This would be before 1900 or so. The REAL color of the sky must have looked pretty. But in our lifetime, we just know it as black. I'm 44 y.o.

And BTW, I've stopped writing down when they spray (chemtrails) on my calendar. I should write down the days they DON'T spray for almost every day there are lines. This morning before 7:00 a.m. they were busy and had a highway painted up there, big thick plumes / lines. I live in southcentral Wisconsin.

I think, besides the spraying, the volcanoes and earthquakes are being pumped up by scalar weapons and by the same people. I think everybody should have extra food and water, especially if you live on either coast, near Yelllowstone, I could go on....

I saw a documentary about a supervolcano in Yellow Stone - if it goes off, half of the US is dead.

I'm 45, so I don't remember real sky, either. I remember I blogged a report around the time of the tsunami that we had done some kind of pressure drilling into the ocean floor that might have set it off.

I'm really worried about that bunker buster they want to test in Las Vegas. I just think it's the wrong time. I don't know if there's ever a right time for such a thing, but I know now isn't it.

Morgaine ...

Damn ... forgot about that preposterous bunker buster ... morons! I have heard they are planning to nuke the eye wall of hurricanes ... sometimes I wonder if these idiots have a fast space ship in case they set off Yellowstone or set the ionosphere on fire,

Stupido

Last winter (N.E. Tenn .. where we keep having mini quakes, but this is a fairly sheltered spot --- too close to Oak Ridge, tho) I noticed on several evenings (don't get off until 7pm) the sky was navy blue ... weird.

I stopped keeping my detailed chemtrail calendar too ... I stopped because nobody gives a rats butt. I have pointed out the skies to zillions of people and they just stare and say they gotta run.

But lately, people are beginning to ask me questions ('bout time) ... they have not stopped blue light shopping yet, but some do seem shook up after Katrina ... and their expectations are through the floor.

Ever notice every time anything big happens, Bush is out of town ... Perhaps he should move to Yellowstone, or Alaska --- yep Rat Islands is a perfect spot for the buzzard and his vp.

Gran ... who is still awake.

Hey, Gran-

WE have got to get these nuts away from the nukes. They're just itchin' to set one off.

I so wonder what kind of protections they have that makes them feel so secure.

I'm hoping that Katrina was a huge shift in consciousness for Americans. That was the first time no one rode to the rescue and it was live on TV, 24 and 7. The Tsunami victims got a better response from our government than our own people did. I loved that they couldn't get Anderson Cooper to leave.

What is really dangerous is that these dummies don't understand chaos theory. It takes very little change to produce a catastrophe.

You might consider carrying on with your records of chem trails. It may come to pass that someone needs a record that disputes the "official" one.

Dome of Montserrat's volcano partially collapses, sending clouds of ash over sea
A lava dome that had been rapidly growing atop a volcano on this Caribbean island partially collapsed Friday, sending large clouds of ash over the sea, scientists said. No injuries were reported.

The dome had been building since the last collapse on May 20 and formed the highest part of the 3,000-foot (920-meter) Soufriere Hills volcano, said Sue Loughlin, director of the Montserrat Volcano Observatory.

"Today's collapse is the result of a high amount of seismic activity at the volcano," Loughlin said.

The partial-dome collapse, which started at about 1 p.m. local time (1800 GMT) and lasted for 20 minutes, followed two earthquake swarms in recent days in which the observatory's seismic network recorded 1,236 small earthquakes at the Soufriere Hills volcano during a roughly weeklong reporting period, she said.

Fast-moving bursts of hot gases and rock fragments shot down the eastern flank of the volcano into the Caribbean during the collapse. Nearly all the gray plumes of ash spread over the sea with a small amount coating inhabitable areas, Loughlin said.

Montserrat's volcano sprang to life in 1995. More than half the British Caribbean territory's 12,000 inhabitants moved away. An eruption in 1997 buried much of the south, including the capital, Plymouth, and killed 19 people.

The southern part of the tiny island is deserted and off-limits after dark, while the island's 5,000 residents now live in the north.

Morgaine ...

I also have hundreds and hundreds of pictures of every kind of Chemtrail sprayed in this area ... at least to my knowledge. Unfortunately I did not notice them until after "you know when" ... the great awakening --- 9-11. And it was still a few months after that.

One of my coworkers was very sickly ... we thought of mold (which was present in her basement), they said perhaps lupus, or leukemia ... she had every test they could think of and never could determine a single thing.

She used to say she thought "they" were spraying us with something and by this time I had begun to realize there was something very wrong with the 9-11 official stories.

When I was outside, I began to see the trails ... Xs, crosses, grids and even a zero one day. I damn well know what clouds look like and that mess did not resemble it it the least.

I started noticing every day. Anytime I went outside I made it a point to "look up." I was astonished to find that nobody else noticed and they seemed to think I was crazy when I mentioned it. Plus I had begun to google the subject and it was confirmed ... something is not right in the sky.

Over the years I have studied many theories ... Geoengineering , depopulation, bioshielding from a too active Sun, shielding to hide something, trails to define scalar energy being transmitted by others (our planes would lay down trails that would show the electromagnetic energy in the form of rippling and cross hatching) and would allow us to see what they are doing ... and the discoveries and possible uses and reasons goes on and on ... for instance ...

VTRPE -- Variable Terrain Radio Parabolic Equation.

"It is a computer Radio Frequency propagation program that deals with radio waves and enables the RFMP system to visually see the battlefield terrain in 3 dimensions (3-D) on a television screen. The RFMP system also depends on satellites to feed their images of the battlefield into it, to then be combined with the battlefield picture painted from the ground, thus producing 3-D images."

Anyway I think you get the picture ... I have been involved in studying this phenom for quite some time and have travelled down many roads.

My conclusion so far is that trails are being used for a variety of purposes ... none, I suspect, with the health and safety of the public involved.

Morgaine ...

On the nukes ...

I was stupid enough to think ... pre you know what ... that we as a people had pretty much figured out we were too stupid (too human) to mess with nuclear technology ... either as weapons or energy.

Unfortunately, I was mistaken ... and not paying close attention. I think this impression came from the airing of two particular movies ... I hope I can remember the names.

One was Threads and the other one, I think was "The Day After" ... quick google ... brb ... Yep ...
The Day After, that is it.

These two films were shown extensively in the early 80s ... even to school children. Many said children should not be shown these films, but I disagreed ... they should know and be shown the folly and error and the horror of nuclear warfare.

Hey, Gran - Keep looking up. Somebody has to...

And I think you're right. Kids need to grow up knowing how horrible nukes are so they never consider using them.

Quote: "none, I suspect, with the health and safety of the public involved. "

That's usually a safe bet.

Mayon Volcano acts up as Bulusan Quadruples sulfur dioxide emissions


LEGAZPI CITY (5 July) -- Government scientists are closely monitoring Mayon Volcano in Albay as its abnormal behavior such as crater glow and sulfur dioxide emission are again in an increasing trend.

Alex Baloloy, resident volcanologist of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) at Ligñon Hill Observatory here, said that Mayon's crater glow was again visible to the naked eye during night time and the released volume of SO2 was double than the normal volume.

Phivolcs bulletin on Mayon noted the "bright crater glow" and recorded at least 1,037 sulfur dioxide emission per day in the past 24-hour monitoring period.

Baloloy said that the visible crater glow and the high volume of SO2 could mean that the magma inside the volcano is again gradually rising towards the surface.

"He said Phivolcs decided to lower Mayon's alert level from 2 to 1 on April 18 due to the continued decline in these parameters.

"But apparently these parameters are again in increasing trend which means that Mayon is acting up again," Baloloy said.

Meanwhile, Lesty Saquilon, Phivolcs volcanologist monitoring Bulusan Volcano in Sorsogon, allayed the fears of residents on the sulfur dioxide emission (SO2) of Mt. Bulusan which was recorded at 2,310 tons per day, or four times higher than the previous volume of 469 tons per day last June 20.

He said that the very high SO2 emission is not very significant since it was not accompanied by other abnormal parameters such as low and high frequency quakes and harmonic tremors.

Saquilon explained that when the SO2 emission is not backed up by tremors it could only mean that it was just an ordinary release of gas, and not necessarily due to massive magma degassing that could lead to an eruption.

He said that the very high volume of SO2 emission in the past 24-hour monitoring period could be due to the declogging of the crater when it last spewed ash on June 20. (PIA) [top]

Montserrat’s volcano blows but stays at level 4
Tuesday, July 4, 2006

by Karen ‘Lioness’ Allen
Caribbean Net News Montserrat Correspondent

BRADES, Montserrat: On Friday, June 30, 2006, Montserrat Volcano Observatory (MVO) scientists reported that there had been a dome collapse with an associated ash plume of over 12,000 feet. However, the volcano alert level remained at four, indicating that there exists still a possibility of serious eruptive activity that could affect inhabited areas.

Friday’s dome collapse episode started around 1:00pm sending pyroclastic flows down the Tar River Valley to the sea on the Eastern side of the island accompanied by ash clouds to just over 12,000 feet in the air.

A press statement, released by the Disaster Management Coordination Agency (DMCA), stated that, “the ash plume was blown north-west by prevailing winds with most of the ash falling into the sea. However, some ash fell in the Salem and Woodlands area.”

Dr Sue Loughlin, MVO’s Director said the activity followed a continuation of earthquake swarms first seen last weekend. At the beginning of the following week, the volcano alert level was decreased momentarily to level three, when the earthquake swarm, which triggered the increase in the alert level, died off. It returned Thursday afternoon and the authorities increased the alert level from level three back to level four.

After Friday’s dome collapse, the Emergency Policy Group (EPG) released another press statement reporting that, “the volcano remains unsettled with continuing long period earthquakes. The alert level remains at level four.” Accordingly it further stated, “Venting of steam and ash continues with some pyroclastic flows down Tar River Valley.”

This press statement confirmed that the dome collapse on June 30th was a partial dome collapse and much of the lava dome remains intact. “This was confirmed early Saturday morning following brief glimpses from the Perches fixed camera.”

Friday’s event was of short duration. The EPG reports that pyroclastic flows continue to occur. Further emphasizing that explosive activity still cannot be ruled out based on past patterns.

The EPG’s Press Statement said their decision to close St. George’s Hill is still in effect. “This means that there should be no entry to this area at all until further notice. Anyone entering points south of the Belham River Valley, other than Isles Bay Hill, should, for their own safety and as a precaution, register at the Salem Police Station before crossing the Belham River Valley.”

Residents on Isles Bay Hill are reminded that they should not attempt to cross the Belham Valley during heavy rainfall or increased volcanic activity.

For those residents of Salem, there is no change in risk levels. The level of risk associated with this area is currently categorized as low on the Chief Medical Officer’s Scale.

As is usually the case, depending on the visibility of the volcano, a further assessment o the situation will be conducted by the MVO using a helicopter. Residents of Montserrat continue to pay keen attention to the Soufriére Hills volcano to find out what will come of this ongoing increased level of volcanic activity.

Kirby ...

Looks like USGS has changed their minds on the Shake and Baked Alaska ...

Reporting a 6.2 Aleutian Islands

Cannot seem to make up their minds lately.

While looking at the Havaria site I noticed that there are 4 volcanoes showing activity today. Also, as of 9:25am EST, the Seismic monitor for USGS is not showing any print reports for the big Aleutian Is quake yet.

AGAIN, look at the way the smaller ones are lined up. Way too straight to be natural, in my opinion.

To my great surprise I found a local news story on the Havaria site of a tragic accident which occurred yesterday just 10 miles from where I live. I walked downstairs and picked up the local paper and there was the story on the front page. The Havaria site is really informative!

http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index927.htm

Article entitled:
Major Lunar Standstill On July 11th Has Russian Scientists Concerned Over Catastrophic US Northwest, New Madrid Fault Zone Earthquakes

Mentions the fish dying in large numbers in the Bay area as brought up on this list recently.

Also remember that prior to the bigger hurricanes last year, the western coast of Florida and the eastern coast of Texas witnessed major "fish runs" where fish of numerous species were all headed out of the area at the same time. Which, according to biologists, was unusual (for the different species to be moving together).

We really must take note of what the Animals are doing. In many ways they're much smarter than Humans...

More activity recorded at Soufriere Hills volcano

The Montserrat Volcano Observatory (MVO) says there have been "long-period earthquakes and rock falls" at the Soufriere Hills volcano since June 27.

In a statement issued on Monday, the MVO said photographs show that the dome volume was approximately 27 million cubic metres, giving an average growth rate of about eight cubic metres per second over the past month.

The seismic network has so far recorded 17 hybrid earthquakes, six volcano-tectonic earthquakes, 194 rock fall signals, and 448 long period earthquakes.

MVO has urged residents and visitors to the island to tune in to the local radio station "for up-to-date information on the volcano".

It said access to all areas south of Richmond Hill, and south of Jack Boy Hill to Bramble Airport and beyond were prohibited at all times.

Last month the dome of the Soufriere Hills Volcano collapsed, sending pyroclastic flows down the eastern side of the island and ash clouds to just over 12,000 feet in the air.

The Soufriere Hills Volcano roared to life in 1995 after years of being dormant.

Dozens of earthquakes shake chain

By JULIA O'MALLEY
Anchorage Daily News

Published: July 11, 2006
A strong earthquake, measuring magnitude 5.1, struck at 8:04 p.m. Monday 80 miles off Amchitka Island, according to the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer.


The quake was among dozens powerful enough to feel that have been jostling the waters outside Amchitka over recent weeks, including one Saturday that measured magnitude 6.7 and was felt in Adak around 12:40 p.m., said Paul Whitmore, director of warning center.

Three other quakes followed the large quake Saturday night, all measuring above magnitude 5.

“It’s definitely a swarm of earthquakes,” Whitmore said. “We see this from time to time in different areas of the Aleutian arc.”

Scores flee as volcano erupts in Colombia
July 13 2006

Bogota - Authorities were evacuating about 8,000 people in south-western Colombia on Wednesday following a volcanic eruption.

A minor eruption of the 4 275m Galeras volcano at 6pm prompted authorities to declare a state of maximum alert as they waited to see if further explosions would occur, said Eduardo Gonzalez, head of the government's disaster prevention office.

About 2 000 of the people affected in three nearby alpine hamlets were already evacuated, and the rest were expected to be taken to disaster shelters in the coming hours, Gonzalez said.

The volcano, 520km south-west of Bogota, near the border with Ecuador, has a long history of activity. More than 100 minor tremors were felt during the volcano's last major eruption in April 2002, although no damage or injury was reported.

A 1993 eruption killed nine people, including five scientists who had descended into the crater to sample gases.

In November 2005, the volcano spewed ash that fell about 50km away. - Sapa-AP

Mt. Mayon lava fragments collapse
By RHAYDZ B. BARCIA

LEGAZPI CITY - Government volcanologists rushed to the municipality of Malilipot, Albay, following reports of rockfalls and ashfalls on vegetation that alarmed residents of Calbayog village and nearby areas.

Ed Laguerta, PHIVOLCS resident volcanologist, sent a team to investigate into the reported traces of ashfalls from Mount Mayon.

Mayon has been exhibiting abnormalities since 2004, while crater glow and sulfur dioxide emissions have been observed recently.

Mayon recorded at least 25 tremors of short duration and six volcanic quakes Thursday. The tremors could be associated with phreatic activities or rockfalls following the collapse of lava fragments.

Laguerta told The Manila Times that the restiveness has intensified as indicated by its crater glow becoming more visible lately. This means that magma build up is gradually rising towards the surface.

"Mayon volcano’s abnormality is acting up again because we noticed several volcanic quakes and intense crater glow but we’re facing difficulty in monitoring its activity as some important equipment were lost to thieves. Even our telephone lines are not functioning because the connecting wires were stolen," he complained.

Laguerta said that his office is pulling out some gadgets, which were temporarily installed in Mt. Bulusan, to put up on the slopes of Mount Mayon for effective monitoring.

I sure don't understand how this New Mexico eq can still be "uncertain or not yet determined". Even in places where there are no seismic monitors (i.e. way out in an ocean) they are able to determine the magnitude within an HOUR. This one confuses me. I guess a person could write to the USGS and ask but...

I have noticed USGS makes all kinds of odd changes in magnitudes, and locations ... sometimes I click on a square and get an entirely different part of the globe.

Get it together guys ... unless you really are trying to hide the increase in quake activity ... or ... if you are underfunded ... well, we all understand that from an Administration that only cares about $ Making $ ... the most useless possession we can collect.

I know ... you just have to figure out a great New Business Proposal that delivers $ to the pockets of Congress and get your lobbyists to D.C
