    Well, I am glad that the local police were not damaged… lol.. Japan is a hot spot for such activity. I am waiting for numerous volcanoes to start erupting in Japan and elsewhere as in Kamchatka right now.. Yellowstone is acting up too.. over a time perod.. we need to keep an eye on Yellowstone, that would be catastrophic.

        Yea, verily.. I got my emergency supplies and equipment all set up… if we don’t have time to evacuate. I remember Mt. St. Helens in 1980, live just south of there and that was nothing in comparison to what may come with Yellowstone. I am not sure which direction we should go if evacuation is needed. Probaby west though.

      I noticed that police comment in the article. I had to chuckle about it.

      Yellowstone is definitely one I’m watching too. But I’m also keeping an eye out on New Madrid. If/when that goes, it will be devastating.

    The wisest direction to head would be; in specific., away from civilized areas for reasons of it being a national threat, Marshal law will go into affect. If you are un aware of the truth to the intentions of our government and its shadow government corespondents in accordance to Marshal Law, ill put it frankly: “I would rather perish in a volcano.” The people of the world should realize, uncle sams got some big plans for us. if we allow them
