    The most dangerous volcano in Mexico just erupted 200 times in a 24 hour period, but there has been an almost total blackout about this in the U.S. media.  Authorities are saying that the odds of more volcanic activity at Mt. Popocatepetl are “immediate to high”, and if a full-blown Plinian eruption were to occur it would be the worst natural disaster in the modern history of North America.  Approximately 26 million people live within 60 miles of Popocatepetl’s crater, and so we are talking about the potential for death and destruction on a scale that is difficult to imagine.  In ancient times, Mt. Popocatepetl buried entire Aztec cities in super-heated mud, but then it went to sleep for about 1,000 years.  Unfortunately for us, it started waking up again in the 1990s, and now this is the most active that we have seen it ever since the volcano originally reawakened.

    What we have witnessed over the last several days has been nothing short of stunning.  According to a British news source, a level three yellow alert was put into effect after “200 eruptions were recorded in just 24 hours”…

    Popocatépetl volcano, just 35 miles from Mexico City and 20 miles from Puebla sent ash and plumes of smoke more than 1.5 miles high. Mexico’s National Centre for Disaster Prevention (CENAPRED) has warned people to keep away from Popocatépetl after 200 eruptions were recorded in just 24 hours. A level three yellow alert has been issued meaning the chance of volcanic activity is immediate to high.

    At this point a 7.5 mile “security radius” has been established around the volcano, and if things continue to get worse authorities will be forced to begin large scale evacuations.

    Hopefully there will be enough warning before a Plinian eruption occurs, because several towns could be completely buried by super-heated mud traveling at 60 miles per hour

    While not every Plinian-sized eruption is alike in ferocity, all the volcanologists I spoke with provided grave details about Popo’s sure devastation. First, you would see 1,000-degree lahars and pyroclastic flows speeding down at 60 mph. Those flows would reach most, if not all, of the towns in the High Risk area, which today include Santiago Xalitzintla (population: 2,196), and San Pedro Benito Juarez (3,153), and Buenavista (814).

    No human on the entire planet can run that fast.  If people are able to get to their vehicles in time they would have a chance, but in reality the highways would quickly become completely clogged as thousands of escaping vehicles all converged at the same time.

    Mexico City would be out of range of the tsunami of super-heated mud, but the truth is that the volcanic ash would kill far more people.  Even just breathing in the volcanic ash could potentially be a death sentence

    The real threat, of course, begins after the lava halts. If the wind blew in Mexico City’s direction, a city-sized cloud of ash 20 centimeters thick would descend upon the buildings, dismantling roadways, shutting down airports and the Metro line. Breathing it in could kill you. And that’s just the first day. After that, seeping ash would clog Mexico City’s drainage lines, poisoning its water supplies, and ceasing electricity transmission via short-circuiting. With food supplies cut off, and no electricity, the dense metropolis would probably resemble something like the World Trade Center the night of September 11th, except with three times as many people attempting to flee. All under the veil of an ash-blackened sky.

    Ultimately, we are talking about an event that would mean the end of the modern nation of Mexico as we know it today, and this is the most active that Mt. Popocatepetl has been in any of our lifetimes.

    Are you starting to understand why I get so frustrated with the mainstream media?  What is happening to Mt. Popocatepetl should be front page news all over the county, and yet the mainstream media is almost completely ignoring it.

    Meanwhile, a volcano in Washington state is starting to vent steam and gas.

    I’ll bet you hadn’t heard about that either.

    Mount Baker is 31 miles due east of Bellingham, Washington, and all throughout the month of March steam and gas have been pouring out of the volcano

    The state’s quartet of the potentially eruptive peaks are all part of the Cascade Mountain Range, and the northernmost is Mount Baker, which is located in Whatcom County, 31 miles east of Bellingham.

    On March 4, the 10,781-foot-tall volcano began producing a number of steam plumes known as fumaroles. The expulsions have continued throughout the month since then and several have been highly visible from many miles away and widely captured in photographs and cell phone videos.

    Those of you that are familiar with my work know that I am much more concerned about Mt. Rainier, and when that volcano starts venting steam and gas I am likely to really start freaking out.  But Mount Baker is a very serious threat too because of its “proximity to human population”

    Mount Baker last erupted in 1843, but in several recent publications, the U.S. Geological Survey has maintained that Washington state’s third-highest peak continues to present a serious threat due to the frequency of its eruptive history and the volcano’s proximity to human population.

    We are seeing a rise in seismic activity all along the Ring of Fire, and as I have frequently warned, North America will not be immune from what is taking place.

    The entire west coast lies directly along the Ring of Fire, and seismologists assure us that it is just a matter of time before we witness absolutely massive natural disasters.

    And with all of the shaking that is currently going on, the truth is that time may be running out a lot more quickly than many of us had been anticipating…

      1. I should think 200 times in 24 hours was a good thing. Releasing energy before it can accumulate into a BIG one. But what do I know.
        Anyway, Mexico city wouldn’t be any loss. Puebla on the other hand is quite nice.

        • Well damm, I hope the millions of refugees that will be coming bring lots of avacados!

          • We can have a fiesta with guacamole and cervesas for cinco de mayo!

              • One day momma duck and momma skunk were walking down the road together with their babies. They came to an intersection and looked both ways and decided it was safe to cross. They got halfway across and a speeding truck ran over both mommas. The little duck started to cry. The little skunk consoled him and asked why he was crying. The baby duck said “Well my momma just got killed and she never told me what I am”. The baby skunk said “don’t worry, maybe I can help! He said, you have feathers and a bill and webbed feet… You must be a duck!” The baby duck was happy and they continued down the road. Then the baby skunk started crying. The duck said “what’s the matter?” The skunk said the same thing, he wasn’t sure what he was. The duck said “don’t worry, I will help you! Let’s see, your not all white and your not all black, and you stink pretty bad…. YOU MUST BE A MEXICAN!” 😛

                • 🙂

      2. That was not the volcano. It was the Drug Cartel burning some bodies.

        • Either way – it’s less Mexicans.

          • Stuart…wow dude…

          • Si’

            • PLUS, I’m hoping this volcano has a massive-gassive shit pain and covers Mexico entirely.

      3. Howdy Y’all,

        ….Now THIS is getting interesting. It’s a true pity that we don’t have BI here to interpret the significance here involved.

        That said, my meager researches on this monster suggest that it is LONG overdue for some rather serious activity. I’m sure that most here watched the antics several months ago in Hawaii, yes? Just so, between that and to days 6.1 at the Kiska volcano as well thermographic data from My Wrangell (in my general vicinity) showing a distinct increasing trend I am beginning to wonder exactly what physical processes are awaking under our feet way down in the vasty deeps.
        IMHO, this has a strong potential to get ‘interesting’ really, really quickly. Oh, and incidentally, the danger to the entirety of the region surrounding THIS volcano cannot be overstated…


      4. not to hijack this thangy, question,
        you tube, dust, the gunfighter, whats it mean ?

      5. Michael Snyder?

        What’s wrong with this guy?


      6. I fail to see a problem. Lets hope the ash and gas lands on those caravans of illegal invaders and chokes them all to death.

      7. Having lived through Mt. St. Helens I can say breathing the ash falling many miles away is not deadly. That is what cheapie dust masks are for. Somewhere I still have a bottle of St. Helens ash gathered from my front yard shortly after the main eruption.
        Mt. Baker is always leaking something.
        This mexican volcanco can make a real mess even as far as Mexico city, but if all they have to deal with is ash, that is just a pain to clean up.
        Having said that, any volcano eruption is very hazardous and it is best to stay way away from them if you can.

      8. So…what is the down side to an explosive volcanic eruption in Mexico ?

      9. 200 tremors you dolt

      10. Close the border, build the wall taller. It they have a god and that god loves them, then that god is responsible for them, not the USA.

      11. An eruption of communism has occurred in Illinois. We already have a Democrat Governor, Democrat controlled State Senate. Now the City of Chicago has elected a black, lesbian, racist, communist as Mayor. The Cook County Board President is still a black, female, racist, communist. The Cook County States Attorney is still a black, female, racist, communist. I feel sorry for those of you that live down state Illinois. Just my opinion.

        • Chimpcongo, located in Crook county Ill-a-noise has always been a doo doo hole of commies and mobsters. Nothing new. Now they just get to add gay and female title of degenerate mayors.

      12. Mexico hasn’t recovered from the last eruption that was 1000 years ago.

      13. You think if the earth burps it give a S–T what it destroys ?

      14. Benjamin Franklin…..you get the government jet you deserve..

      15. You get the government that you deserve…Benjamin Franklin MC.

        • I have the government that was foisted on me by masses of assholes!

        Cause, or were they trying to seed then?

        There are chemical fires in Houston, TX. This is second one as of late? WTF is going on?

        Wind is currently South blowing as of this post.
        Seems like those chemicals from fires are blowing into DFW Area.

        Of course “news” channels say nothing.
        Just feed lies ans BS.

        Weather modification?
        Or to gauge flow of chems from Houston?
        Southwind blowing chems in from Houston TX, fires??

        I will keep the children indoors today.
        Anyone have info?

        Russian plane surveying USA under “open Skies” policy NOW!

      17. Was in the Philippines right after pinitubo volcano.
        Its was unbelievable The lahars buried entire towns – The ash buried villages so all you saw was church steeples.

        This could be a real calamity for Mexico

        The earth seems to be waking from its 10,000 year slumber. It’s only going to get worse and its NOT global warming – ITS the SUN and its cyclical
