No. 53: Eruption of Pago volcano on-going in SW Britain, PNG

May 3, 2012 SW Britain, PAPUA NGPago is the post caldera volcanic cone of Witori which formed within the past 350 years. Mt Pago is a young volcano. Its cone is probably only about 350 years old, but it is part of a much larger volcanic complex, the Witori caldera, which formed 3300 years ago. Witori Caldera has long been recognized as active and is considered a potential dangerous volcano in the area. Since the Mt. Pago and Witori volcanoes are located in the same caldera, there is a possibility that an eruption of Mt. Pago may have similar effects on the Witori volcano. The volcano eruption is on-going and has gone from a red to an orange aviation alert advisory. The volcano had two VEI 6 events in its past history. –GDACS

    I believe this is the 53rd ongoing volcanic eruption. Curious to know if in any point of time has there been so many volcanic eruptions around the same time. Is this an indicator that we are close to an extinction level event.


    • It’s an ominous sign that we’re seeing so many cluster eruptions happening over such a short span of time. I don’t recall this many in a 4 month span. It’s following the trek of increased seismicity across the planet so there is no longer any doubt the planet is shifting. We’ll see what will happen from here.

        Alvin, this is getting too big to ignore. Surely the MSM will have to start covering this? Won’t hold my breath though! Thanks again for all your work. Your book is winging its way to Ireland as we speak. Thought I had better read it quick before the new book is ready.


      • Sounds good, Dublintaff. Keep me posted. I don’t know at what point the suspicion of the masses will be aroused but I feel a singularity point is going soon and these events will eventually garner the front page headlines they deserve.

        peace and love,


    • So many of them are located along the PRoF it seems to be loosening things up. The Great Unzipping as it were.

    Do you have a chart or list of all the 53 active volcano’s and a list of the last time they have erupted? How many have them have been extremely dormant and now showing signs of activity? Thank you for any updates. So grateful for you and this site. It has brought so much awerness to my life in more ways than one. Bless you. -Sue


    • Active ones on a list; no. A list of the ones that have erupted this year in 2012, yes.

      God bless you,

        Thank you for posting all of these events with volcanoes! I always read your posts and as a friend on facebook posts them I to see how are world is changing day to day now. God bless you for sharing these events and others for our learning experiences Alvin.


      • You’re welcome, Dianne F.

    That listing of eruptions is very helpful. I just spent a good amount of time trying to find some statistics this year on the number of eruptions and I am having a lot of trouble finding a total count. This is the only place that seems to have a count. I understand on average there are 60 eruptions in a year… well, before 2010 on average perhaps. So we have a total of 53 and it’s only May. I think this is really important to understand because I think it’s a sign and part of a series of multiple events that is showing the time is coming for… the shift.



  4. I agree the magnetic field problems are more serious than scientist have led us to believe and it is increasing earthquakes. I cover this in the new book.
