Good judgement comes from experience. Where does experience come from? Poor judgement.

Alaska’s Bogoslof volcano explodes, warnings sent on North Asia-U.S. flights

Image

An Alaska volcano that has erupted periodically since mid-December sent up its biggest cloud to date late Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning, prompting warnings to airliners and a major US fishing port in the Aleutian Islands.

Bogoslof Volcano erupted at 10:36 pm Tuesday, spewing ash for three hours and sending a cloud of it to 35,000 feet, the Alaska Volcano Observatory reported.

The National Weather Service warned that trace amounts — less than 1 millimeter — of ash could settle on Dutch Harbor, a major port for Bering Sea crab and pollock.

It was the 36th eruption for Bogoslof over the last three months, and the first since February 19.

Why the oceans are warming up....

NZ scientists help find new undersea volcanoes

Image

Kiwi scientists have helped discover incredible new submarine volcanoes in the Pacific Ocean - some rising up to 2.5km from the seafloor.

The discoveries were made by a team of international scientists who have just returned from a six-week voyage probing the volcanic Kermadec Arc, around 1000km northeast of the North Island.

There Have Been 296 Earthquakes In The Vicinity Of The Yellowstone Supervolcano Within The Last 7 Days

Image

Is it possible that the Yellowstone supervolcano is gearing up for a major eruption? If you follow my work on a regular basis, then you already know that I spend a lot of time documenting how the crust of our planet is becoming increasingly unstable. Most of this shaking is taking place far away from the continental United States, and so most Americans are not too concerned about it. But we should be concerned about it, because a major seismic event could change all of our lives in a single instant. For instance, a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would have the potential of being an E.L.E. (extinction level event). That is why it is so alarming that there have been 296 earthquakes in the vicinity of the Yellowstone supervolcano within the last 7 days. Scientists are trying to convince us that everything is going to be okay, but there are others that are not so sure.

The biggest earthquake in this swarm occurred last Thursday evening. It was initially measured to be a magnitude 4.5 earthquake, but it was later downgraded to a 4.4. It was the biggest quake in the region since a magnitude 4.8 earthquake struck close to Norris Geyser Basin in March 2014. This magnitude 4.4 earthquake was so powerful that people felt it as far away as Bozeman…

Yellowstone supervolcano is hit by more than 400 earthquakes in just ONE WEEK - the most active it has been for five years

A total of 464 quakes were recorded between June 12 and June 19
The strongest quake of 4.4 magnitude hit on Thursday June 15
The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory monitors seismic activity at the park
This could be a warning sign of an impending eruption of the supervolcano
There is a one in 700,000 annual chance of a volcanic eruption at the site

Incredible....get more and more!

Yellowstone Supervolcano Earthquake Swarm Reaches 878 Events in Just Two Weeks

Updated | Over 800 earthquakes have now been recorded at Yellowstone supervolcano over the last two weeks, with the ongoing swarm taking place on the western edge of the National Park.

But there is virtually no risk of the volcano erupting, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) currently lists the volcano alert level as normal and the aviation color, which lists the potential risk to fights, is at green.

The current earthquake swarm began on June 12. A week later, the USGS put out a statement to say that 464 earthquakes had been recorded, with the largest being magnitude 4.4 “This is the highest number of earthquakes at Yellowstone within a single week in the past five years,” it said.

Not sure were they get that amount of quakes, I did a custom look from 1.0 to 6.0 between June 14 to today. Only getting 344 quakes.
