Kirby ...
When I clicked on the biggest box, I got a 7.7 earthquake, but when I called up a list the red marker said 6.2.

I say again ... are these people overwhelmed ... or incompetent or hiding the facts?

Wow! usually the big ones get downgraded. The smaller one I think was a 5.1 originally. There was also a small tsunami that was first thought to have caused less than ten fatalities. But even that was upgraded to 84 when I last looked.

I guess everything gets editorialized.

Ecuadorian villagers flee rain of molten rock July 16, 2006 - 2:06PM

Ecuador's Tungurahua volcano spewed ash, gas and molten rock for a second day, driving hundreds of evacuated villagers into nearby schools and churches in search of refuge.

Tungurahua, about 130 kilometres south of Quito, has been increasingly active since May, when it blew out big clouds of hot gas and prompted officials to renew a limited state of emergency in nearby towns.

Civil defence authorities and police continued to evacuate seven small villages around the volcano, whose name means "throat of fire" in the indigenous Quichua language.

Civil defence authorities said more than 3600 people have been evacuated from the highest risk areas near the volcano.

"We need water, food and medicine ... but we are lucky we had no deaths or people hurt," said Juan Salazar, the mayor of Pinipe County on the outskirts of the volcano.

A rain of molten rock in the past two days that set fire to trees and grass marks the volcano's strongest recorded activity since it began erupting in 1999, local scientists said.

Lava flows blocked roads and destroyed bridges while people fled their farming hamlets tucked in the folds of 5020-metre Tungurahua.

"I have lived here my whole life and I have never seen something like this," said Alvira Marino, a corn farmer standing next to the road leading out of her village.

Patricio Ramon, chief scientist of the local geophysics institute, said the volcano "is entering a new and different stage with more violent releases of magma and energy."

"We need to be prepared for the worst ... even though the volcano's activity decreased on Saturday," Ramon said.

During a four-hour visit to local villages, President Alfredo Palacio said the country needs to prepare "for the worst-case scenario" and promised $5.7 million in relief funds for the region.

Many fleeing villagers took refuge at schools and churches in the town of Pingue, just a few kilometres distant.

"I had to run for my life," said Wilber Rodriguez, 24, lying on a mattress with his wife and infant son in a school classroom.

"But I have to go back ... everything I have is in my village." Rosa Bonilla, a 72-year-old farmer, said she fled with her family after her home was almost knocked down by repeated volcanic explosions.

"I thought my house was going to come down on us," Bonilla said. "I pray we can return soon."

The volcano's crater is little more than 1.5 kilometres south of the tourist resort town of Banos whose 17,000 residents were forced to evacuate in 1999 after loud explosions and huge plumes of ash billowed out of its crater.

Other emergency centers were set up in Banos to receive any residents fleeing from nearby villages.

Red-hot lava poured down the slopes of Mayon volcano
Monday, July 17, 2006 (Legazpi, Philippines):

Red-hot lava poured down the slopes of Mayon volcano, accompanied by more tremors, for the fourth straight day on Monday, indicating an explosive eruption may occur soon, scientists said.

The government, meanwhile, assured residents that evacuation plans were in place in case of a major eruption, although authorities for time being ruled out raising the alert level from two notches below the highest.

The silent, steady flow of lava and debris on the 2,474-meter (8,118-foot) mountain, famous for its near-perfect cone, has reached 800 meters (2,624 feet) down the summit since Friday, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said.

Seismic activity- Gleaming in the dark and steaming during the day, the advancing lava and cascading rocks were accompanied by 314 tremors in the past 24 hours, significantly higher than the 111 tremors the previous day, the institute said.

"The increased seismic activity, relatively fast lava extrusion rate and high sulfur dioxide emission rate indicate heightened unrest of the volcano, which could lead to explosive eruption," it said.

Officials had earlier estimated a hazardous eruption could occur within weeks.

Authorities have extended a six-kilometer (3.7-mile) danger zone around the peak of the volcano to seven kilometers (four miles) on the southeastern slope, where most of the lava and other debris have been rolling down.

On the streets of Legazpi city, the capital of Albay province near the volcano, about 340 kilometers (210 miles) southeast of Manila, it was business as usual as people went about their lives. In the evenings, residents and tourists gathered at a hillside to gaze at the flowing lava.

Disaster preparedness- residential spokesperson Ignacio Bunye said on Monday the National Disaster Coordinating Council and local authorities "are on top of all disaster preparedness measures to ensure the safety of the residents who may be directly affected by the volcanic activity."

Mayon's most violent eruption, in 1814, killed more than 1,200 people and buried a town in mud. A 1993 eruption killed 79.

The Philippines is in the Pacific "Ring of Fire," where volcanic activity and earthquakes are common.

In 1991, Mount Pinatubo exploded in the northern Philippines in one of the world's biggest volcanic eruptions of the 20th century, killing about 800 people. (AP)

Talk about a BAD triple play... :-(

Volcanoes erupt West New Britain

By FREDDY GIGMAI
HUNDREDS of people were evacuated from villages in the Bialla area of West New Britain province after two volcanoes, which have been quiet for a long time, erupted.
Eruption was observed on Mt Ruckenburg, or the Karai volcano, on July 10, and two days later on Mt Bamus, and the threat of more eruptions prompted authorities to evacuate the villagers to safer areas.
Reports said this was the first recorded eruption of Mt Ruckenburg while, for Bamus, it is the first in 120 years.
Bamus is located southwest of Mt Ulawun, another volcano in the area which erupted recently.
Observers reported weak to moderate white vapour emitting from Mt Ruckenburg, but no observed ash fall, while there were white-grey emissions recorded at Bamus.
Villagers in the area also reported hearing booming noises coming from the volcanoes.
Provincial disaster officials and officers from the Rabaul Volcano Observatory (RVO) are closely monitoring tectonic activities in the area after strong tremors were recorded last weekend.
According to a RVO officer, Bialla and Ulamona villagers living near Mt Ruckenberg and Mt Bamus had moved to temporary care centres.
“Provincial disaster officials had evacuated more than 1,000 people from three villages in the areas under close scrutiny for possible volcanic activities as a precautionary measure,” the officer said.
He said the latest reports of volcano tectonic activities recorded in the area yesterday afternoon measured between 1 and 5 on the richter scale.
“We have set up a new seismographic machine close to Mt Bamus, which is located between Bialla and Ulamona, and it is still recording so we should get a final report by tomorrow morning (today),” he told The National.
He said RVO acting assistant director Herman Paita and provincial disaster officials were in the area monitoring the situation.
Radio New Zealand International also reported strong tremors that scientists warn could mean an eruption was near.
It said high levels of tremors were recorded but there were no thermal activity from the volcano.
The RVO officer said earthquakes in the affected area were being felt almost every hour.
The Radio New Zealand report said the Australian government, through its aid agency AusAID, had responded to a PNG Government request for additional monitoring equipment. Two technical experts from Geosciences Australia were also flown to West New Britain to help watch the situation.
Attempts to talk to the director of National Disaster and Emergency Services were unsuccessful as he was attending emergency meetings yesterday. An official statement on the situation is expected today.


Ecuador volcano explosion destroys homes of 100,000 residents
Patricio Donoso, president of Ecuador's Chamber of Agriculture, said on Monday that 100,000 people have lost their homes and 15,000 hectares of land were destroyed by the eruption of Tungurahua Volcano some 135 km south of the capital Quito.

"Farmers in the region are losing everything: livestock and planted land. The situation is very, very bad," Donoso told Teleamazonas television, calling on the government to provide emergency help.

The government evacuated 5,500 people who lived close to Tungurahua's crater on Friday.

The 5,029-meter-high volcano was showering the region with burning hot lava for a fourth day on Monday.

The Andean provinces of Tungurahua and Chimborazo in southern Ecuador have been put under an orange alert and regional authorities were watching the volcano, ready to declare a red alert which implies the total evacuation of the area around the volcano.

Hot and dangerous lava was due to reach the town of Banos, which has 15,000 residents, on Monday, experts told television.

Pablo Samaniego, of the National Polytechnic's Geophysics Institute, told the media that the volcano erupted in a fashion similar to that in 1918, with six to eight periods of explosive activity sending lava down its sides.

He said the volcano was like a boiling milk pan, burying things in ash in all directions.

Banos was also hit hard in 1918.


LEGAZPI, Philippines -- The lava-spilling Mayon volcano showed no signs of slowing down Tuesday, although scientists reported fewer tremors, and the mayor of the town at the foothill of the mountain invited tourists to enjoy in the spectacle.

The 5-day-old flow of lava and rocks from Mayon's near-perfect cone at 2,474 meters (8,118 feet) has now reached 1,000 meters (yards) down the summit, while fragments of rolling red-hot boulders were falling as far as 3,000 meters (yards) away, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said.

Authorities have barred people from a six-kilometer (3.7-mile) danger zone around the peak of the volcano, which was extended to seven kilometers (four miles) on the southeastern slope, where most of the lava and debris have been rolling down.

Evacuation plans also have been put in place in case of a major eruption.

"The number of earthquakes has decreased but the lava continues to advance," said resident volcanologist Eduardo Laguerta.

"There was heavy rain yesterday (Monday), so it is possible that the rain caused the lava to crust, chilling the surface and temporarily hardening it and affecting the flow. But this will not stop the advance of the lava after a few hours," he said. "Last night the crater glow was intense ... that means it is hotter on top of the mountain."

The mayor of Legapzi, the capital of Albay province near the volcano, about 340 kilometers (210 miles) southeast of Manila, said that since Mayon began spilling lava on Friday, tourists had been arriving in batches, most of them from neighboring towns and provinces.

"The hotels are already 60 to 70 percent filled," Noel Rosal told Manila Radio dzBB, but gave no figures.

Mayon's most violent eruption, in 1814, killed more than 1,200 people and buried a town in mud. A 1993 eruption killed 79.

The Philippines is in the Pacific "Ring of Fire," where volcanic activity and earthquakes are common.

Magnitude 3.6 earthquake shakes Mount St. Helens
MOUNT ST. HELENS, Wash. -- A magnitude 3.6 earthquake shook Mount St. Helens Tuesday morning, one of the largest earthquakes recorded during the ongoing eruption, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The 9:56 a.m. quake triggered significant rock falls from the lava dome and crater walls that sent plumes of dust to the rim.

Lava has continued to push into the crater - most recently forming a sheer rock fin - since the 8,364-foot mountain reawakened with a drumfire of low-level seismic activity in September 2004.

The crater was formed by the volcano's deadly May 18, 1980, eruption that killed 57 people and blasted about 1,300 feet off the then-9,677-foot peak.

The volcano reopens to climbers on Friday. Climbing the volcano has been banned since September 2004.

The National Volcanic Monument limits the number of climbers to 100 a day and requires a permit available online through the Mount St. Helens Institute.

Before the latest eruption more than 10,000 climbers took the 5-mile hike to the rim at an elevation of about 8,364 feet.

Volcano adds to Indonesia's disaster woes
JAKARTA, July 18 (UPI) -- Clouds of hot ash and lava flows from a volcano in North Sulawesi are adding to Indonesia's troubles with Mother Nature.

The Jakarta Post reported Tuesday thousands of villagers were fleeing their homes on Siau island amid new activity from Mt. Karangetang, which lasted erupted in 1940.

Reports said the sounds of explosions, the spewing of ash and lava began last week.

Authorities were monitoring the situation, but there was no information immediately available on whether a major eruption was likely.

More than 300 people were killed in Java on Monday when an underwater earthquake triggered a tsunami. Tens of thousands were killed in the great Asian Tsunami of 2004.

Mt. Karangetang is the second Asian volcano this month to threaten eruption. In the Philippines Mt. Mayon, southeast of Manila, began belching ash, lava and debris. Volcanologists were predicting a major eruption could occur within the next two weeks.

Something in that area is about to disappear, sink, "just not be there" anymore. I hope I'm wrong. It will be in a peripheral area, not central.

That wouldn't surprise me. You have to wonder what's going on under the sea? All these volcanoes above ground, then the ones below the water? There's go to be a lot of movement in the tectonic plates and so much pressure building. It's like pieces of dominoes falling, one after the other. I'm almost afraid to keep checking the istes I use. What next???

I just keep noticing that these volcanoes haven't eruped since 1920, 1940,etc. A long time ago in human terms. I wonder when people will stop calling it "strange" and the like and realize that we're not in Kansas anymore.

Swarms of Mount Hood tremors baffle experts
Quakes

The cause of the spurts dating to 1980 eludes scientists studying Oregon's tallest volcano
Wednesday, July 26, 2006
RICHARD L. HILL
Mysterious earthquake swarms that sporadically strike Mount Hood continue to bewilder scientists such as Ken Cameron.

A geologist who studies Oregon's tallest volcano in his spare time, Cameron says the uncertain cause of the earthquakes makes Hood intriguing. Scientists say the quakes are produced either by a shallow fault system in the Earth's crust or by magma moving in the dormant volcano's plumbing system.

Most recently, instruments detected about a dozen quakes, the largest a magnitude 2.1, on July 12. As with past swarms, they were about 3 to 4 miles beneath the south flank near the Timberline and Mt. Hood Meadows ski areas. It was the first significant swarm since 2002, when more than 200 quakes -- including a widely felt magnitude 4.5 quake -- struck the mountain.

Cameron, a geologist with the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality and formerly with the U.S. Geological Survey, has tracked Hood's quakes back to 1977, when a network of seismic instruments began operating.

Counting only the most reliable data about quakes that can be located -- very small ones are difficult for instruments to pinpoint accurately -- Cameron says nearly 1,400 quakes have occurred in the past three decades within five miles of the mountain, with about half of them associated with the hidden trigger beneath Mount Hood.

Most of the quakes are small and unfelt, ranging between magnitude 1 and 2; only 180 quakes have been 2 or larger, Cameron says.

The first recorded swarm came in 1980, two months after the violent eruption of Mount St. Helens 60 miles away. "That swarm caused local officials to take a look at Hood and write the first contingency plan on what to do if it erupts," Cameron said.

"A connection between Mount St. Helens and Mount Hood was discussed at length at the time," he said, "but no one could come up with a good mechanism" other than speculation that "the stress already was built up under Hood and the shaking from Mount St. Helens just set it off."

Cameron said quakes increased from 1987 to 1994, with the count averaging about 15 a year. The next pulse of quakes started in 1998, culminating in the energetic 2002 swarm.

Cynthia Gardner, scientist-in-charge of the Cascades Volcano Observatory in Vancouver, said the most recent event was noteworthy because it's been four years since the last attention-getting swarm.

"Maybe a lot of stress was released with the magnitude 4.5 quake four years ago, and it takes a while to build that stress back up again," Gardner said, adding that the strain may be caused by the volcano's weight on the Earth's crust.

The quakes are not a signal that magma is moving within the volcano, she said. "But earthquakes are how many volcanic events start, so you can't ignore them when they wave their hands again."

The last eruption was about 200 years ago.

A study of the seismic swarms by Josh Jones and Steve Malone, University of Washington researchers, found that the 2002 earthquakes appear to have been along a fault and "do not yet suggest potential for volcanic unrest."

According to Cameron, Hood's longest period without quakes in recent years was 146 days between December 2005 and mid-April.

Mount Hood's earthquake activity varies from year to year, Cameron said, and 30 years of data "on something like a volcano just isn't that long of a record to use in drawing conclusions" about the mountain.


Mayon Volcano (Phillipines) ready to explode?

Recent signs from Mayon Volcano, which include increasing seismic activity, indicate that it is ripe for a full-blown eruption. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) reported that the advancing lava flow is now estimated to have reached 450 meters elevation while the length of the main lava flow is 4.45 aerial kilometers from the summit crater.

"In addition to the increasing lava flow, 316 episodes of ground vibrations, or more commonly known as tremors, were recorded by the seismic network," PHIVOLCS said.

According to PHIVOLCS these tremors are being generated by lava, either flowing or falling into the gullies and channels in the southeast sector, near the Bonga Gully.

"Seven volcanic earthquakes were also detected which were generated from ascents of magma inside the volcano," the agency said.

Mayon Volcano also emitted a high concentration of sulfur dioxide, measured at 9,275 tons a day, from its crater.

"This high rate indicates fresh magma inside the shallow levels of the volcano," PHIVOLCS reported.

In an event of Mayon’s eruption, barangays near the six-kilometer permanent danger zone (PDZ), which includes Mabinit, Bonga, Matanag and Buyoan in the southeast, and town of Maisi, would be affected. Residents in the areas have been advised to be vigilant of the dangers posed by Mayon.

"Residents near the PDZ should also be aware of rock falls, lava flows and small rock avalanches or pyroclastic flows." PHIVOLCS said.

Alert level 3 remains hoisted over Mayon Volcano. Should the alert level rises to 4, residents will be evacuated and contingency plans will be activated.

The Office of Civil Defense has assessed that 1,484 families, or 7,436 persons, may be evacuated in the surrounding areas if alert level 4 is raised.

In the event of an eruption, 35 available school buildings can be immediately used as evacuation centers. Evacuation centers near the Mayon area are to be found in the cities of Legazpi, Tabaco and Ligao and the towns of Malilipot, Santo Domingo, Daraga, Camalig and Guinobatan.

6.1 Earthquake Rocks Indonesia

Posted on Thursday, July 27 2006 15:27:36 PDT by Intellpuke

A powerful earthquake rocked the Indonesian island of Sumatra on Thursday but there was no reports of any casualties and damage while meteorologists played down the risk of tsunami.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake registered 6.0 on the Richter scale. Indonesian meteorologists put the magnitude at 6.1, centered closed to Nias island off the coast of Sumatra.

There were some reports of panic on Nias, where hundreds of people were killed by another strong quake in March 2005.

Senior Indonesian seismologist Fauzi told Jakarta-based Radio Elshinta the earthquake appeared too small to trigger a tsunami, reported Reuters.

A seismologist in North Sumatra province told Reuters that no damage had been reported from the closest areas to the epicenter.

It happened near Nias island but we have not received reports of any damage from there. It has been an hour so I think there has been no indication of a coming tsunami," said Buha Simanjuntak.

A government official on Nias told Reuters there was no indication of damage or casualties, but people fled homes and buildings after feeling the tremor.

A quake off the coast of Indonesia's Java island earlier this month triggered a tsunami that left more than 600 people dead and tens of thousands without homes.

The tsunami that hit Java on Monday killed at least 668 people. Some 74,000 residents have been displaced, either because their homes were destroyed or out of fear of living next to the sea. More than 280 are missing, officials say.

Subsequent quakes have triggered panic in a country that has no fully operational tsunami warning system in place.

Indonesia is still recovering from the effects of the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami of December 2004, which killed more than 226,000 people when it swept ashore on Sumatra.

The archipelago nation sits on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, an arc of seismic instability responsible for regular earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. In May this year, 5,700 people were killed when a quake hit near the city of Yogyakarta on densely-populated Java island.

There were also a couple of Earth science articles in the news this week that caught my eye. One was on a new undersea type of volcano and another was on progress in predicting earthquakes. It's great to see good science being done in this field, but I'd feel a lot better if I thought they were seriously looking into man-made HAARP-type meddling with tectonic forces

Indonesian volcano spews lava
MANADO, Indonesia (AP) — A volcano on an eastern Indonesian island started spewing lava and hot clouds, forcing the evacuation of thousands of villagers, officials said Friday.

Lava and hot ash rumbled 750 yards down Mount Karangetang’s slopes Thursday, its second eruption since July 17, said Saut Simatupang, chief researcher at the government’s volcanology agency.

Nearly 4,000 people were evacuated from five villages, said Iskandar Gobel, a North Sulawesi provincial official, and police said more would likely leave in coming days. Nobody was hurt.

Mount Karangetang, one of the country’s most active mountains, has been rumbling for weeks. Six villagers were killed when Karangetang erupted in 1992.

Indonesia, the world’s largest archipelago, is prone to seismic upheaval due to its location on the so-called Pacific “Ring of Fire,” an arc of volcanos and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin.

The 5,850-foot Karangetang is on Siau, part of the Sulawesi island chain, which has not been affected by a recent string of natural disasters.

An earthquake off Java island triggered a tsunami earlier this month that left 600 people dead, and a temblor on the same island in May killed 5,800. Mount Merapi, also on Java, has seen heightened activity in recent months.

We just had a small earthquake here. Probably along the Roger's Creek Fault which tracks very close to my house. It was not a big one, maybe 3.0 or so I'm totally guessing. However, my house shook and it got my chandalier to swaying.

We cross-posted, rebecca--our lamp in the bedroom quivered and we felt the "roll" as it passed us here in Oakland. Glad you're OK.

Suburban Cleveland County on Shaky Ground

By THOMAS J. SHEERAN, AP
Wednesday, August 2, 2006

MENTOR, Ohio -- A corner of suburban Cleveland has become the earthquake capital of Ohio, shaking on average every two weeks since New Year's Day and making people wonder: What's next?

The quakes haven't caused any serious problems, and sometimes even go unnoticed. Experts aren't sure why they are happening now, but they do know they are happening frequently: 12 were recorded in the area by July 1.

"I heard one," said Jim Farrell, 79, of Mentor, a retired plasterer with an eye for wall damage. Still, he hasn't seen any damage and hasn't felt any of the quakes recorded in Lake County and under adjacent Lake Erie.

The earthquakes have been small, measuring from magnitude 2.0 to 3.8. By comparison, the deadly quake that hit the Northridge area of Los Angeles in 1994 was a 6.7 magnitude.

Though they are happening often now, earthquakes aren't uncommon in the region. Lake County has been the site for 14 of the 20 earthquakes recorded in the state in the past two years. The quakes result from a fault, or crack, that is under pressure, one of a number of faults in Ohio, most of which are under the sedimentary bedrock.

Ground zero for keeping track of the Lake County earthquakes is a busy classroom building on the Lakeland Community College campus, where a seismic monitor sits on the concrete floor of a tiny closet housing electric boxes.

The monitor is sensitive enough to pick up the rumblings of a heavy truck along nearby Interstate 90, according to David Pierce, an assistant geology professor who keeps tabs on readings forwarded to the statewide Ohio Seismic Network near Columbus.

To Pierce, a low-level earthquake "always feels like a semi (tractor-trailer) coming down my street and hits a rock or a speed bump," sending a boom like a burst of compressed air.

Pierce, like police and fire departments, can get dozens of calls when an earthquake strikes, often from people happy to learn that it didn't do damage and wasn't a terror attack.

Without damage or injury from the series of quakes, the question for many is: will the next one be worse? "The official take is: we don't know," Pierce said.

The frequent quakes have prompted some caution among officials. A top concern for some Lake County authorities is the Perry Nuclear Power Plant, which was constructed to withstand a building-shaking 6.0 earthquake and opened in 1987 just one year after a 5.0 quake in Lake County.

The biggest of the recent earthquakes, a 3.8 temblor recorded June 20, automatically set off alarms to alert a plant command post. That sent 30 inspectors on a four-hour search for any indication of cracked pipes or other damage.

None was found, Perry spokeswoman Jennifer Young said. The plant remained in operation without interruption during detailed inspections of cement walls and pipelines reinforced with shock absorbers to handle shaking.

Data indicates homeowners aren't making many changes to protect against the quakes. There is little evidence that many homeowners have made moves to buy earthquake insurance, said Gary Christy with the Westfield Group insurance. Nine percent of the Westfield-insured homes in Lake County have earthquake insurance.

Nationwide Insurance agent Gerald Merhar in nearby Willoughby said about 15 percent of his homeowner policies have earthquake coverage riders costing about $20 a year for a frame home and $30 for brick. Merhar, 57, whose own home has a repaired crack from a quake more than 50 years ago, recommends coverage, especially for brick homes.

"They don't shake well," Merhar said.

Nice little earthquake, just north of Vancouver, WA, early this morning around 1:40 a.m. I was up, talking to my son and his friend and noticed my arm on the dining table was mildly shaking back and forth, but the hanging lamp didn't move and the boys didn't notice anything odd. I wrote it off as a "peculiar sensation" until i learned this morning we had a trembler.

I heard Sean (?) on C2C last night talking about his earthquake/volcanic predictions, and he said 2010 was a year to watch. He foresaw a big earthquake in the area of Tennessee (sorry, i forget the name of that faultline), as well as a shaker in L.A. that would cause a tsunami to come back and hit the Hermosa Bay area. Hmm... He did mention, however, that he strongly felt we, as a whole, can soften the blow of a lot of these impacts simply through the way we evolve into more loving beings. I feel that's true. Earth has to do what is necessary to grow and evolve, but maybe we can help ease the trauma through our loving attention.

Scientists Record 51 Earthquakes Near Mayon
By Mar Arguelles

LEGAZPI CITY, Phillipines: Low-frequency quakes rocked Mt. Mayon even as its steam emission dropped suddenly, indicating an explosive eruption is highly possible, scientists said yesterday.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said the low-steam emission indicated gas was being blocked by fresh magma and building pressure in the volcano’s vents.

Seismic instruments detected 51 low-frequency quakes compared with the 16 recorded on Wednesday, indicating the volcano was bringing more magma up to the crater, it said.

The instruments also recorded 343 tremors caused by lava tumbling down the volcano’s slopes.

“The presence of low-frequency volcanic earthquakes triggered by the active degassing and partial blockade of viscous magma would lead to either a continuing lava flow or an explosive eruption,” volcanologist Ed Laguerta said.

Scientists said the sudden drop in the volcano’s sulfur dioxide emission did not mean Mt. Mayon had stopped degassing.

The volcano disgorged 4,760 tons of sulfur dioxide yesterday compared with 12,548 tons on Wednesday, but that only meant magma was partially blocking the gas’ path, Laguerta said.

The partial blockade also meant the volcano was building up pressure that could lead to an explosion, he said.

The volume of lava emitted since Mayon started its “mild” eruptions on July 14 had reached 18 million cubic meters, and most of it had flowed down the Mabinit Channel south-southeast of the crater.

Subsequent flows filled the gullies at the southeast’s upper and middle slopes, from Miisi Channel in Daraga to Buyoan Channel in this city.

The lava front is now as big as a four-story building, and it is nearing the 6-km permanent-danger zone after incinerating hectares of coconut plantation and farmland in Mabinit town.

The town’s farmers have cut hundreds of coconut trees so they can use them before lava destroys them.

Officials said Alert Level 3 was still up, meaning sudden explosions and lava avalanches could happen any time.

The danger zones remained off-limits to all residents and visitors.

Sounds like any time now...

29,530 flee homes as Mayon eruption nears
Some 29,530 people have evacuated their homes in Albay as Mayon Volcano continues to show signs of a major explosion.

The National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) said at least 5,990 families were brought to 18 evacuation centers in Albay as of 6 a.m. Wednesday.

The evacuees are residents of 23 barangays inside the six-kilometer permanent danger zone and eight-kilometer extended danger zone of Mayon.

Officials said the number of evacuees is expected to balloon the whole day because of mandatory evacuation efforts being conducted by the police and the military under the coordination of Albay's provincial disaster coordinating council.

NDCC Executive Officer Glenn Rabonza said social welfare officers in Bicol are bringing tents to Legazpi City, Camalig, Guinobatan and Daraga towns for the new evacuees.

The military earlier deployed 100 soldiers to augment policemen deployed to the danger zone boundaries.

NDCC also reported that Mayon had 134 tremor episodes over the past 24 hours and lava continue to flow from its crater.

The government ordered the mandatory evacuation on Monday after repeated explosions shot giant clouds of smoke and ash into the skies above the mountain, which last erupted in 1993 and killed about 70 people.

President Arroyo urged residents to comply with the evacuation order, telling them “not to flirt with danger” by going back to their homes inside the eight-kilometer danger zone declared around the volcano.

“We assure those affected that we have enough resources to shoulder basic needs and services in the evacuation centers; and that the people will not be kept from their homes a minute longer than is necessary,” the President said in a statement.

Mayon has erupted 47 times since records began being kept in 1616. The deadliest eruption came on Feb. 1, 1814, when it spewed masses of lava that buried the town of Cagsawa and killed an estimated 1,200 people.

Volcano in Ecuador Erupts; 1 Person Dead

Ecuador's Tungurahua Volcano Erupts in the Andes Mountains; at Least 1 Dead, 60 Others Missing

QUITO, Ecuador Aug 17, 2006 (AP)— A volcanic eruption in Ecuador's Andes mountains killed at least one person and left more than 60 others missing, the mayor of a village on the volcano's slope said Thursday.

One man's body was recovered after the overnight eruption of lava from Tungurahua, in the country's high Andes, Penipe Mayor Juan Salazar said.

"There are another four who we believe are caught under the rubble," Salazar told Channel 4 television. "There are 60 other people who are on the high flanks of the volcano whom we could not get to this morning."

It was the first fatality reported from a Tungurahua eruption since the volcano rumbled back to life in 1999 after staying dormant for eight decades.
