And they just had a 7.1 earthquake off the southern coast of Mexico a few weeks ago.....now the largest ever eruption just south of earthquake.

The Fuego Volcano in south Guatemala explodes one of "the largest recorded eruptions" in the volcano's history

Image

The Fuego Volcano in south Guatemala burst into life on Wednesday plumes of ash blew into the sky in what has been described as one of "the largest recorded eruptions" in the volcano's history.
The volcano, known locally as Volcan de Fuego, which translates as 'Volcano of Fire', is an extremely active volcano, and this is the seventh time this year that it has erupted.

Japan volcano on Ring of Fire ERUPTS after hundreds of EARTHQUAKES

A VOLCANO along the Ring of Fire has begun erupting following intensified tremors in the region.

Image

Shinmoedake volcano’s eruption was sparked after the Japanese Meteorological Agency observed 100 volcanic earthquakes per day since the beginning of October.

The volcanic eruption was triggered at 9.34pm on Tuesday (5.34am Wednesday local time).

Several volcanic tremors, caused by the movement of magma and hot water underground, had also been observed near Shinmoedake, on the Japanese island of Kyushu.

The alert level for Shinmoedake, part of the Mt Kirishima cluster of volcanoes, has been raised to 3 on a scale 5 after the eruption, the Japanese Meteorological Agency confirmed.

One of the major reason why our oceans are warming up....
For some reason climate change people seem to not talk about :smt045

Gee I wonder why? :D

Selective memory I would guess....doesn't fit into the fear mongering going on. :135:

Climate scientists ignore up to ten million underwater volcanoes

We’ve learned a lot in the last 25 years, especially when it comes to underwater volcanoes. When I began researching and writing Not by Fire but by Ice in 1991, scientists guestimated that there were 10,000 submarine volcanoes in the entire world.

Two years later, marine geophysicists discovered 1,133 previously unmapped underwater volcanoes off the coast of Easter Island.

And they were huge. (Still are.) Some of the newly-found volcanoes rose almost 1½ miles above the seafloor. Even then, their peaks remained about 1½ miles below the water’s surface. They’re packed into a relatively small area about the size of New York state.

We have no idea how many volcanoes may be lurking beneath the seas. What we do know, is that they are pumping awesome amounts of re-hot basalt – up to 1,200ºC (2,200ºF) hot – into the inky black water.

Yup, we visited Mt. St. Helen's and read in one of the write ups how the witnesses said the cooling effects of the ash covering the sun was immediate.

I will expand on the Mt. St. Helen's visit greatly in the next few days. AWESOME place to visit!

Considering how much carbon is released into the atmosphere for every single eruption , I wonder how long it will take Truderp to find a way to "carbon tax" them.....
I payed attention in High school....But not to what they were trying to teach me..

For those who love all things volcano, Mt. St. Helen's is surprisingly close to us. I hadn't ever looked into it before but while researching the drive to the Oregon Coast, we discovered that driving over Washington's very scenic highway 12 took us right up to Mt. St. Helen's. So we stopped for a day.

Driving in we noticed that the smaller towns along the end of Highway 12 really don't have hotels or motels, unless you stay in Packard, WA. Packard has a connecting road to Mt. Rainer, but it's still close to Mt. St. Helen's, close enough to stay there over night and leave early enough to get to the mountain before the bus crowds. Even Bed and Breakfast places seemed few and far between. We simply didn't see any. So we stayed in Castle Rock at the Timberline Hotel. No amenties but very reasonable.

At 6:30 am, we packed and headed up Spirit Lake Highway to the Johnson's Ridge Observatory, not really knowing what to expect. Turns out there is a huge parking lot and if you park at the very end of it, you can hike up a trail and get first class views of sunrise on Mt. St. Helen's. The further in you hike the trail, the more you get orientated towards being in front of the cone.

We spent three hours taking it all in and finally hiked back in time for the Interpretation Center to open at 10 am. There you get the wonderful half hour movie of how the mountain blew down the trees and how nature is recovering. No cafe or food is available so you have to drive down the mountain for breakfast. We stopped in a small roadside diner right on the mountain, it's been there for 30 years.

We also took in the A-Frame house which got buried by the mud and rock flows. Humbling to think everything we were standing on is only laid down since May 19, 1980. Like Mr. QK said, "the vegetation is all so young."

Very good road driving up.
Very few places to stay.
You may end up staying in Chehalias or Keslo if you don't book your room or campsite well in advance.

Anyway, the views are astounding and the entrance fee into the Interpretation center is well spent. And it's all a day and a half away from the Okanagan. I had no idea.

There are some closer than that. Mt Baker for instance.

Google Volcano's in BC.

But my little blog here isn't about "just google and done, Boom". Sure they haven't blown up since for hundreds of years unlike Mt. St. Helen's.

The attraction to Mt. St. Helen's is the open cone, the on-going drama of seeing the steam rising out of the inner cone and the excellent interpretation center.
