2.8 magnitude earthquake reported under Japan’s Mt. Fuji volcano

June 24, 2012Japan A 2.8 magnitude earthquake was reported under the Mt. Fuji volcano on the 24th of June. Mt. Fuji last erupted in 1707, but the volcano began showing signs of growing unrest this year – indication it is waking up from its long slumber as we reported. On June 20, 2012, a rare anvil or hat-shaped cloud appeared near Mount Fuji after a strong typhoon swept through Japan. The cloud, called “tsurushi-gumo,” or hanging cloud, was seen on Wednesday morning. The phenomenon occurs when winds around Mount Fuji become strong, or after tropical storms. But experts say such clouds rarely appear at this time of the year. The cloud disappeared after about 30 minutes when the sky became overcast. –Wish – Fukushima Diary

    I so would not want to live in Japan. How are people still able to reproduce there with all of the radiation, earthquakes, and volcanoes?

    I live in the shadow of Mt. Rainier and similar clouds are quite common around the top of it. They are very interesting to see. It must be the flow of air around the shape of the mountain that causes them……?

    That is awesome. I’m also a cloud person. Thank you Alvin. As for Mt. Fuji, now we wait.

    Clouds like this are generally generated due to the height of the mountain forcing the air flow into a higher and colder air mass, but that doesn’t make any less beautiful. I’ve lived near the Oregon Cascades most of my life and haven’t seen one, so they are rare. Nice catch!
