Hundreds of people are fleeing the island of Kadovar after a violent volcano has erupted for the first time in history. There have also been warnings that tsunamis could strike the island after the alarming eruption.
Mount Tavurvur, in the town of Rabaul in East New Britain province, erupted at 3 a.m. Friday morning, local time. The volcano, located in Papua New Guinea, was thought to be dormant. It has now erupted for the first time in known history, spewing ash thousands of feet into the air and forcing the evacuation of hundreds of residents. But the worst could be forthcoming, as experts now fear this surprising eruption could lead to landslides and tsunamis in the area.
“Due to the steepness of the island, landslides are possible and together with the explosive nature of magma, tsunamis may be generated,” the Rabual Volcanological Observatory said in a statement. “It appears from satellite imagery and aerial photographs that it started with mild Vulcanian activity from a vent at the southeast base. It appears a fissure may be opening just inside of the western wall of the net’s breach descending down to at least sea level,” the statement continued.
Cheyne O’Brien, a forecaster at the Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Center, said that the ash clouds had been thrown up steadily to a height of 6,998 feet, forming a plume that is traveling west-northwest. “It’s just a continuous emission of volcanic ash at the moment,” he added. O’Brien also said that although the plume does not yet pose a threat to aircraft, that could change if the wind switched direction towards Papua New Guinea’s Wewak airport.
Just last week, Mount Saint Helens experienced earthquakes while the heavily populated Bay Area in San Francisco was rocked by a small quake that shook millions. Could this be the beginning of the Earth’s crust “waking up?”
I have been writing about the shaking that has been happening on the west coast quite a bit lately, but I don’t think that people understand the seriousness of what we are facing.
Scientists assure us that the “Big One” is coming, and when it does arrive the devastation will be absolutely off the charts. –Economic Collapse Blog
But this rattling of Earth’s foundation could go beyond the West Coast of the United States. There has been an increased level of volcanic activity around the globe, leading many to wonder if scientists were correct when they claimed that 2018 is shaping up to be a year of violent activity in the Earth’s crust.
The Technocracy is not your friend.
You are temporarily being extended freedoms until your head is in the noose.
What is the speed of the earth’s crust? If these volcanos and quakes are the result of sticking points in the crust being popped, are the crust’s movements going to speed up?
rrrr – the earth is rotating @ apx. 1000 mph. An earthquake/seismic wave propagates @ a speed (within what we call our surface) from 4 1/2 to near 18000 mph. The crust ‘popping’ as you put it is going from 0 to that last range in a moment. Overall, the earth merely ‘shudders’.
Heartless… the Earth is rotating at near 1000 mph. LOL, why can’t that be seen or felt?
The global warming elitists missed it again. It isn’t the heat trapping that CO2 does. It is the increased weight on the Earth’s crust.
Its the end… Dog and cats living together!
Time to sacrifice a virgin.
Virgin… where ?
There aren’t any left just insane men who think they should have pussies.
They’ll do. Throw them in.
Mexico City, Naples, and Seattle are cities that would have to be evacuated on very short notice. The authorities will be reluctant to order an evacuation. This island only had hundreds of people. Imagine millions of people trying to leave on a few hours notice(or less).
Time to call for all BRAIN CLOUD Libs ,Left ,Antifa Fellow Travelers to travel to all VOLCANOS And JUMP IN NOW .
“Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On”. And “Shake, Rattle, And Roll”.
Um….from the one of the links in the article.
Known as the most active volcano in Rabaul caldera, Mount Tavurvur erupted with Mount Vulcan in 1994, devastating the nearby Rabaul township and killing five people. The most devastating eruption was in 1937, when the two volcanoes also erupted simultaneously, and killed 507 people.
Vulcanism on Earth, how is that a news story? BS meter just peaked. News for the stupid people that live in those areas that will demand full reimbursement even though they live in there areas without any insurance whatsoever. Oh the day when the freeloaders are finally gone. Lettuce prey.
More volcano porn.
“Dormant” volcanoes are just that, dormant.
I live on the slopes of a volcano that last erupted
4,500 years ago and USGS Hawaii Volcano Observatory
still considers it to be active.
So let’s see. Dormant volcano that hang erupted in known history and yet it has erupted numerous times in past 20 years if you do a quick Google search.
More weight on earths crust???
From what? That’s stupid….there is not MORE weight in earths crust. It’s always the same weight. Again a simple google search.
But some of you are funny.
There was a recent (huge) eruption on Kamchutka peninsula that the msm ignored, plus earthquake swarms up and down the US west coast, slow slip. There is definately an increase lately in both earthquake and volcanic activity worldwide. Dutchsinse youtube channel has interesting daily updates.
