Mud volcano erupts in Azerbaijan- Colombian volcano awakening after 86 years

September 20, 2012 AZERBAIJAN Baku. Kamala Guliyeva – The Lokbatan mud volcano erupted in the morning has weakened, Executive of Mud Volcanism Department under the Geology Institute of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences Arif Huseynov told APA. Huseynov said that the eruption process is being studied. The volcano accompanied by a rumble at 05.00 spew flames at 09.00: “According to the preliminary observations, the eruption was powerful and mud spread across the area of more than 2 ha. The exact information will be announced after the measurements. But this eruption was more powerful than the eruption in 2010. At that time, the mud covered about 2 ha area.” Husyenov says that no flame is being observed in the area: “The volcano has already weakened. It is not likely to flame again, as it’s weakened.” The Lokbatan mud volcano is the most active volcano in Azerbaijan and in the world. Last time the volcano erupted in 2010. This is the 24th eruption of the volcano. Fortunately there aren’t any houses in the area, but there are oil wells. –APA

    does anyone have a guess as to how many active volcanoes there have been or are currently erupting this calender year? It seems it must be over 80…

    Hello all, I have been visiting this website for over a year now. I found it after I did a search entitled ‘are earthquakes more frequent?’ and I found this site. Our planet is in a constant state of flux and we shouldn’t worry too much about the site’s focus on possible disasters, it could get you quite depressed if you thought that the end of the world was coming, every time a volcano erupted or there was an earthquake, but it does seem to be more frequent over the last year – this was the reason for my original search. I don’t think that us humans will be here on the planet in the long run, for a number of reasons, so panicking about these natural and uncontrollable events seems like a waste of energy, but thanks so much for reporting them all on one site. At least when IT comes, I will be mentally prepared……but I do think we will be here this time next year 🙂
