India to investigate reports of underwater volcano near nuke plant in Kalpakkam

June 25, 2013INDIA – The Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) has begun a detailed study to analyze the possible threats of an underwater volcano near the Madras Atomic Power Station (MAPS) in Kalpakkam, about 70km south of Chennai. Confirming the presence of an underwater volcano five weeks ago, an AERB reply to an RTI query said the Geological Survey of India (GSI) has also recommended an advanced study to figure out the status of the volcano, though initial investigations did not detect any significant geological signs. AERB said the National Institute of Oceanography (NIO), Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) and GSI have recommended further analysis in view of an “inferred high density material intrusion of remnant magnetization based on magnetic and gravity anomalies” around the location of the volcano. AERB had appointed these national agencies to study the possible threats and geological status of the underwater volcano after Smithsonian’s Global Volcanism Program (GVP) released a document on the reported volcano in 1757, located about 100km-110km from the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR), Kalpakkam.  According to GVP, a US government agency based in Washington DC studying active volcanoes and their eruptions during the last 10,000 years, says the undersea eruption of the volcano happened last on January 20, 1757, off Puducherry, resulting in the formation of a new island. However, AERB said GSI’s offshore surveys did not find any existence of an island. Also, it added that the seismic data and wells drilled by ONGC in the vicinity did not indicate any volcanic intrusions. In last September, V Pughazhendi and R Ramesh, two activists of the Peoples Movement for Nuclear Radiation Safety, who published a book compiling the documentary evidences of the volcano, demanded that the AERB conducts an advanced study. The AERB study is in progress and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) insists countries should ensure safety and protection if they had built reactors without considering the effect of volcanoes in their vicinity. –Times of India

    Nature’s solution to decommissioning a nuclear power station; encase it in lava.
    A further thought, have there been any studies for this scenario occurring in other countries: nowhere in Japan can be far from a volcano?

    Hey Alvin,

    Not sure if you saw this one yet… a Rare Tsunami hit the East Coast on 6/13…. Here’s the link:

    Sorry to share it on an unrelated post but wanted to give you heads up asap.

    all the best,

    Should they not have done these reports BEFORE they built the NUCLEAR plant? Why is it humans can not learn from other people’s mistakes? (Such as Long Island and Chernobyl_)?. Murphy’s Law is a real Law – if it CAN happen – it WILL. Like teenagers who do not see the consequences of WHAT IF???

    A volcano beneath an atomic power plant. That sounds like a script for the SyFy channel. Unfortunately, it isn’t.

    The great Goliath of this generation rises up before us:NUCLEAR ENERGY! It will cause havoc, it will be a scourge… Spiritual blindness clouds our reason and thoughts and has hardened the heart of those who hold power in their hands.THE HEAVY CROSS OPENS ITS WAY AMONG US…
    It is the instant of prayer, of penance and of fasting!! God bless us…

      I agree with everything you are warning about, Mercedes. We have 15 plus GE nuclear reactors over 40 years old and leaking, on the New Madras Fault line !
      Crusade Prayers, penance and fasting! YES! It is the tried and true way to mitigate the attack of Satan on God’s children in these End Times. Do we have the courage and strength to withstand the Antichrist’s cunning lies. YES WE DO, by the grace of Almighty God! All we need do is ask Him.
