ALERT: Shinmoedake Volcano Erupts In Japan

by | Mar 7, 2018 | Emergency Preparedness, Headline News | 10 comments

Powerful eruptions at a volcano in southern Japan spewed ash thousands of feet into the air on Wednesday as authorities warned locals not to approach the mountain. Shinmoedake volcano has erupted several times in violent explosions recently.

The Shinmoedake volcano, located on Japan’s southernmost main island, Kyushu, has been bubbling and rumbling since last weekThe entrance to the volcano was closed and monitoring increased last week before it finally began shooting ash and smoke into the sky on Tuesday.

According to Channel News Asia, “The plume reached the height of 3,000 meters (9,800 feet) for the first time since Apr 3, 2011,” following a total of 29 eruptions at Mount Shinmoedake, Japan’s weather agency said in a statement.  People have also been ordered to stay away from the volcano as major ash deposits spread from the crater, the agency said.

The volcano, which featured in the 1967 James Bond film “You Only Live Twice,” has been grumbling since last Thursday. Footage captured by the Meteorological Agency showed lava and thick grey smoke rising from the mountain around midnight on Wednesday.

The volcano also produced so-called “explosive” eruptions, which also featured air blasts. This volcanoes eruption doesn’t appear to be triggering fear in the masses of a more violent “Ring of Fire,” but it’s nonetheless significant geologically.  Japan, has scores of active volcanoes and sits on the so-called Pacific “Ring of Fire” where a large proportion of the world’s earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are recorded.

There were no reports of injuries or property damage, but Newsweek reported that eruptions were expected to continue and the risk of flying rocks and pyroclastic flows were possible.

      “Powerful eruptions at a volcano in southern Japan spewed ash thousands of feet into the air on Wednesday as authorities warned locals not to approach the mountain.”

      If people are really that stupid, They SHOULD approach the mountain!

      Now if they could somehow direct that hot lava to the melted down nukes . that might seal them up?

      I have literally called my SOURCE to see what the deal is on this. I have warned about the environment till I am sick on this site.

      Let them make fun of you, let them laugh. They will learn really fast, that they will not be surviving. I have seen the attacks on your post, quit posting on that site, your wasting time, let them learn.

      Quoted the scientist 2015-2016.

      HCKS:

      Thanks for the heads-up. I found a link to weather.cod.edu that gives the sat-rad info on the gulf… very strange and disturbing. Can’t go west because of the earthquakes, north because of Yellowstone or east on general principle. We thought the flooding here in Houston was bad enough but this looks far worse. I guess it’s only a matter of when for all of us. What the h e double l are we supposed to do.

      You only live twice, or so it seems, one life for yourself, and one for your dreams. Nancy Sinatra. At best, she had a fair voice for singing, but this is her best effort. Go look it up on U-Tube, get the original movie recording, the one they cooked up for the radio sucked hogs’s ass. If you hear a chorus at the beginning, instead of a violin piece with orchestra, you’ve got the wrong (and stupid) recording. One of my favorites, over the years. Bond, James Bond.
