New lava flows open vents on active Hawaii Volcano

May 2016 HAWAII Two new lava flows have broken out at Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, but neither is threatening nearby communities. Kilauea is one of the world’s most active volcanoes. In 2014 lava from one of its vents crept into the town of Pahoa, smothering part of a cemetery and burning down a home.
The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory says the new lava flows broke out Tuesday morning from one of Kilauea’s cones. The U.S. Geological Survey released video showing the glowing red lava as it pushed through a black landscape. Kilauea has been erupting continuously for more than 33 years. It’s one of five volcanoes that make up Hawaii’s Big Island. –ABC News

A dreaded superbug found for the first time in a U.S. woman

Superbug
May 2016HEALTH The United States’ first known case of a superbug that cannot be killed by a last resort-style kind of antibiotic was detailed in a report by the U.S. Department of Defense on Thursday. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Tom Frieden announced the case at the National Press Club in Washington.
A 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman showed the presence of a rare kind of E. coli infection that is resistant to antibiotics, even Colistin, which doctors sometimes use as a last resort when other antibiotics fail.
The woman went to a clinic in Pennsylvania, and a sample was forwarded to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Walter Reed found the bacteria in her urine. No other details were available, including how the woman became infected. She has not traveled outside the United States within the past five months.
The CDC and the Pennsylvania State Health Department mobilized immediately to investigate the case and to trace the contacts the patient may have had to see if the bacteria had spread. The CDC also said it is looking for other potential cases in the health care facility the patient visited. The bacteria have been identified in other infections outside the United States. Doctors saw cases in Europe, Canada and China.
One report suggests that this kind of infection can result in the deaths of half the patients who become infected. Antibiotic resistance has become a growing problem in this country. The World Health Organization has warned that it is one of the biggest threats to global health today. Frieden warned that although this is the first case in the United States, we should expect to see more such superbugs in the near future. Frieden, who often warns doctors against overuse of antibiotics, urged scientists to develop new drugs quickly.
Each year in the United States, at least 2 million people become infected with other kinds of bacteria that can’t be beaten with most antibiotics, and at least 23,000 people die each year as a result of those infections, according to the CDC. “The medicine cabinet is empty for some patients,” Frieden said. “It is the end of the road unless we act urgently.” –CNN

Italy’s Mount Etna volcano growing more restless

Etna It
May 2016 ITALY Mt. Etna in Sicily, Italy has been active once again and some spectacular footage was filmed of its latest colorful eruptions. The video captured bright colors and plumes of smoke and a sea of gurgling lava. The mountain’s summit erupted at dawn Saturday, sending plumes of smoke and lava and ash into a burning orange/red sky. It was filmed by Italian journalist and videographer Turi Caggegi, who said he was filming from near the Voragine crater.
The snow-covered Mt. Etna has long been an active volcano with numerous eruptions throughout modern times and geologists from Italy’s nearby National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Catania expected this latest one. “On May 17th we witnessed an increase in the amplitude of volcanic tremors and recorded intense degassing accompanied by occasional, weak emissions from the north-eastern crater,” a statement from the Institute said.
Smoke and lava was catapulted hundreds of meters into the air. At 3200 meters tall (more than 10,000 feet) Mt. Etna is Europe’s highest active volcano. After some eruptions the height of Mt. Etna alters but it always remains the tallest active volcano on the continent. With interest in Mt. Etna rising again, last week NASA published an animation that uses radio satellite imagery compiled from 1992 to 2001 to make it appear as if the volcano is ‘breathing’ during those years. Geologists have theorized that if the volcano were to ever erupt at his full force it could do extensive damage to all of Sicily. The volcano last erupted in December of 2015. –Digital Journal

500,000 in Bangladesh flee Cyclone Roanu; at least 24 killed as storm sweeps inland

Cyclone Roanu 1
May 2016BANGLADESHPowerful Cyclone Roanu weakened Saturday afternoon after crashing into coastal Bangladesh, flooding towns and villages, triggering landslides and leaving at least 24 people dead across the region. An estimated half-million people fled their homes for cyclone shelters following warnings from the authorities. After the storm made landfall around noon local time, gusts reaching 90 kph uprooted trees, destroyed houses, and disrupted electricity and communications.
According to a statement issued Saturday evening by the disaster management authority in Dhaka, at least 24 people died across seven districts in southern Bangladesh. Seven people died in Banskhali in Chittagong district after a surge in the sea breached dikes and flooded coastal villages. Three people, including a child, drowned on Hatiya Island after seawater flooded their village. Mohammad Shahabuddin, an official with the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society’s Cyclone Preparedness Programme, said that a mother and her 13-year-old son died on Bangladesh’s largest island of Bhola.
Cyclone RoanuAlthough Roanu had its landfall around the noon, strong wind began blowing across Bhola Island since the early hours of the day. The mother and son died in Bhola after an uprooted tree fell on the house where they were sleeping around the dawn,” Shahabuddin told VOA. “A few hundreds of shops in Bhola have been damaged by the strong wind and water surge, which reached up to 2 meters,” he added. “It’s a big blow to the local businesses.” Airlines canceled all flights to and from Chittagong, a city of over 2.5 million people in the southeast, and authorities shut down sea and river ports Saturday, halting the ferries that millions of people in southern Bangladesh rely on for basic transportation. 
On Friday, while Roanu was barreling through the Bay of Bengal, authorities in coastal villages used emergency warning systems to inform people of the threat. “Using mobile microphones in all coastal districts, our officials sent across the warning about the cyclone. We mobilized forces and evacuated the people from the vulnerable coastal areas. We also restricted the movements of boats, barges and fishing trawlers since Friday,” Mesbah Uddin, Chittagong district’s chief administrator, told the local media. Although Roanu had weakened and crossed over to India’s Mizoram state by late evening and water had receded in many coastal areas, most of those who took shelter in cyclone centers late Friday had not moved out by Saturday night. –VOA

Seven killed in violent eruption from Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung volcano

Mount Singabung
May 2016 INDONESIASeven people have been killed after a volcano in western Indonesia erupted, blasting clouds of volcanic ash 3 km (2 miles) into the sky. The victims were farming in an area that was declared unsafe because of its close proximity to Mount Sinabung. The volcano was still spewing ash on Sunday, hampering rescue operations. More than a dozen people were killed when it erupted in 2014. It also erupted in 2010, after having been dormant for 400 years.
Rescue teams are still scouring the area, looking for more victims who may have been killed or badly burned by the hot gas and ash clouds released in the eruption. Rescue teams were searching homes and farms in the village of Gamber, which was also evacuated in 2014. The 2,460-metre (8,070 foot) tall volcano is among the country’s most active. Indonesia, located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, has more than 120 active volcanoes. –BBC

Earthquakes return to Iceland’s Bárðabunga volcano – sudden rise in activity surprises geologists

Iceland Barabun
May 2016ICELANDHoluhraun is a new lava field just north of the Vatnajökull glacier, in the North-eastern Region of the Icelandic Highlands. The lava field was created by fissure eruptions from Bárðabunga volcano, they began on August 29th in 2014 and produced a lava field of more than 85 km2 wide, the largest in Iceland since 1783. The eruption lasted for almost six months, until February last year, with the lava flowing over a wide stretch of land, changing the landscape, including the path and temperature of Jökulsá, a glacier river flowing from underneath the Vantajökull ice cap, resulting in the river partly heating up so that people who ventured up on that part of the highlands were able to bask and bathe in it surrounded by the fresh black lava.
The last earthquake was at 7am this morning and measured 4.4 magnitude on the Richter scale, the biggest one measured since the end of the eruption in February. Right now there is considerable seismic activity in Bárðabunga and scientists are keeping a close eye on it, the events up there are unprecedented and so scientists are observing with great alertness. Normally there would not be such strong seismic activity so soon after a caldera subsides. According to geologist Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson much more activity is likely needed before we can expect an eruption to start up again. It might be that the caldera is filling up again or simply leveling out after the 2014 eruption, but there are only one hundred such calderas to support the scientists in their theories and about a hundred years of recorded history with only the last few dozens of years truly reliable. Scientists are also keeping a close watch on the geothermal temperature in the area might be rising, and its important to monitor, as it might result in water accumulating en mass under the ice cap and later resulting in a huge run-off. A team of researchers are preparing a trip up to Bárðabunga in the first weeks of June to install new measuring equipment to be able to better monitor the activity. –Ice News

Costa Rica volcano erupts violently, spewing ash, column of smoke: hundreds seek medical help

Costa Rica Volcano 3
May 2016 – COSTA RICAFeaturing thick clouds of ash and smoke rising into the grey sky, spectacular images of the powerful Costa Rica volcano eruption have flooded social media. The 3,340-meter Turrialba Volcano is located in Cartago Province of central Costa Rica, only 30 km from the country’s capital, San José. The volcanic activity started Wednesday and the first eruptions were recorded Friday, according to local media.
“It seems to me to be the strongest [Turrialba] eruption in the past six years,” volcanologist Gino Gonzalez told AFP. He added that the wind was blowing the smoke and ash westward, toward the most populated areas of the country. According to the local Tico Times newspaper, the volcano was spewing ash up to 3 kilometers into the air. The paper added that the eruptions turned the sky completely gray, and the ground temperature dropped a few degrees.
The National Emergencies Commission in a Facebook statement called people to take masks and wear tight clothing to protect their lungs and skin from the ash and smoke. Since the start of the eruption, hundreds of local residents reportedly sought medical help due to breathing and skin problems. People took to social media to describe the “all-hell-broke-loose” situation in the region. They spoke about a strong sulfur smell and added that ash has reached four provinces of Costa Rica. –RT

Mystics fears extremely rare ‘blue moon’ event signals doom from above

Bad Omen
May 2016 SIGN OF THE TIMES – Paranormal YouTubers have been posting videos ahead of the event with some saying “something just doesn’t feel right.” A blue moon is a second full moon in the same calendar month. It last happened in July. But Saturday’s event is even rarer as it also a fourth full moon in one season – the period between a solstice and an equinox, as there would usually be just three.
It happens every three years, and this particular blue moon was known as the full flower moon by Native Americans. During the event, which will be visible across the UK at around 10.14 pm on May 21, the moon does not actually go blue. Mystics warn the approaching Blue Moon is a harbinger of something catastrophic. “Something is wrong, something is not right. I feel something is bad.”
While self-proclaimed mystic Bonnie couldn’t seem to put her finger on it, the Nemesis Maturity channel warned the blue moon event could be associated with more bizarre behavior than is commonly linked to a typical full moon. The channel said in a video: “Since ancient times, full moons have been associated with odd or insane behavior, including sleepwalking, illegal activity, fits of violence and, of course, transforming into werewolves.”
However, Christians have been pointing to recent signs of blood and blue moons and rare planet transits as one more sign of the End of Time. “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” Luke 21:25, 26 See post: Is something catastrophic about to happen? 
In 18th-century England, people on trial for murder could campaign for a lighter sentence on grounds of lunacy if the crime occurred under a full moon, meanwhile, psychiatric patients at London’s Bethlehem Hospital were shackled and flogged as a preventive measure during certain lunar phases. –Express, TEP
