Volcanic eruptions from Ubinas in southern Peru to continue next week

June 2014 PERU – Peru’s most active volcano is likely to continue its eruptive activity next week with ash emissions and occasional eruptions, government officials have said. The ongoing process of the Ubinas volcano, in south-eastern region of Moquegua, is characterized by major plume of ashes as well as by volcanic gases and explosive activity. The above former activity is expected to generate harmful effects on farming and livestock raising activities in the area, the country’s Geological, Mining and Metallurgical Institute (Ingemmet) said. Likewise, the Peruvian agency announced an overall decrease in the volcano’s daily seismic energy and a sharp decline in the number of explosions, lowering from more than 40 to 1 or 2 a day.
The monitoring agency said the Ubinas began erupting with new intensity this week, thus starting a continuous stream of massive volcanic rocks which are being spewed out over 1.2 miles. In view of this situation, Ingemmet decided to continue its orange alert, the second-highest alert level, and to keep prompting inhabitants of the towns of Querapi and Tonohaya to flee their homes. According to the monitoring activity hourly, Ubinas’ current conditions is the eruptive process would be similar to that recorded over the last five centuries, which is low to moderate eruption. –Andina
More seismic unrest reported at Yellowstone: Seismographs have picked up a swarm of earthquakes in the northwestern corner of Yellowstone National Park, including dozens early Tuesday. The University of Utah Seismograph Station reported five small earthquakes including those with magnitudes of 3.4, 2.7 and 3.2 in a 20-minute period starting at 3:33 a.m. in an area 16 to 18 miles south of Gardiner. Earthquake information specialist Paul Roberson said there were another 20 to 30 small quakes Tuesday morning that hadn’t yet been posted on the university’s website. He called it a fairly normal swarm for Yellowstone. He didn’t expect there to be any damage. Seismographs recorded 31 quakes in the same area south of Gardiner on Saturday, while another 23 were reported last Wednesday and Thursday in an area between 18 and 19 miles east-southeast of West Yellowstone.

    Hi brother Alvin, how are you? It’s been a long time since I’ve written to you via here. I’m curious to know how many eruptive volcanic events there have been so far this year around the planet. Also, it is very and unusually quiet on the MAJOR(6.0 and above) earthquake front. There has not been one of this magnitude so far in the month of June and not one since a 6.2 magnitude quake struck in Mexico on May 31st and there have only been 2 MAJOR(6.0 and above) earthquakes since the 18th of May which is a period of 24 days. This is very strange and highly unusual especially considering that we are in a full moon phase now. At least in the Southern Hemisphere anyway. The last time this happened was back in December, 2013 which is exactly 6 months ago. Do you have any understanding as to why this is happening at the moment or any intelligent, well-informed and logical explanation. Is it something to do with activity on the sun? Well according to End-Time Headlines on Facebook two huge solar flares have just erupted from the sun so maybe in the next few days we will see some huge earthquakes if there is some connection with seismic activity on earth which I suspect there is. Please reply to me A.S.A.P. Thanks brother and God bless. Cheers!

    • How are you? There have been 37 events so far this year, Wayne.

      I don’t find any significant correlation between solar activity (meaning solar behavior on the surface) and seismic events on the planet- I have however said that there will a marked increased in large-scale events around the Equinox and there was. We can expect to witnessed some strong events happening, leading up to the solstice.
