Activity increases at Guatemala’s Pacaya Volcano

July 26, 2013GUATEMALA Seismic and surface activity have increased during the past days, characterized by the appearance of continuous tremor and more frequent strombolian explosions, the latest special bulletin of INSIVUMEH notes. This suggests a batch of fresh magma is currently rising. The Guatemalan scientists think that it is likely that strombolian activity will increase and perhaps a lava flow will appear on the flanks of the volcano in the coming days. Already, the intra-crater cone has surpassed the rim of the crater by 4 meters and is now visible from outside. – Volcano Discovery
Volcanic activity: Meanwhile, form Indonesia, mild strombolian activity is taking place from the intra-crater cone of the (67) Raung Volcano, a recent photo shows. Tungurahua (Ecuador) For 24 July, IGPEN reports an eruption column of steam and ash reaching 5 km above the crater drifting into westerly directions. During the past night, a further rise in activity has likely occurred, as the increasing tremor signal suggests. Weak to moderate explosion sounds could be heard overnight and ash fall was reported from El Manzano, Choglontus, Puela, Cahuaji, and in the sectors of Cevallos, Quero and Mocha. Heard (Australia, Southern Indian Ocean): A single hot spot is again visible at the summit crater. It is not known what activity exactly occurs there, but it could be that there is a small lava lake or strombolian-type activity from the crater at Dawson Peak. Reventador (Ecuador): Activity remains at high levels, characterized by small explosions and the likely effusion of lava flows. Unfortunately, near-constant cloud cover makes direct observations difficult. (68) Galeras Volcano (Colombia): A magnitude 3.2 earthquake occurred under the volcano yesterday morning. The quake was felt by some nearby residents. Weak ash emissions were reported from the volcano on July 5, 2013.  –Volcano Discovery
The number of volcanic eruptions for 2013 now stands at 68.

    Well, it would be an understatement to say that within the earth, there is an increased restlessness leading to only God knows what.

      He has told us though: “behold the day of the Lord is coming…..and in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the East, and the Mount of Olives shall split in two from East to West…” Its in Zechariah 14


      • Dennis E. says:

        Yes, indeed Dave’s wife. As a matter of fact, if you look at the fault lines in Jerusalem, there is one that runs I think it is North to South over the Mt. of Olives. Not sure if that will be the exact spot he will step, but yes everything is almost in place.
