70: Two phreatic eruptions reported at Costa Rica’s Poas volcano

August 21, 2013COSTA RICA The Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) recorded two phreatic eruptions at the Poas Volcano yesterday morning. The first eruption occurred at 9:55 a.m. and reached a height of between 2 to 3 meters. The second eruption occurred at 11:16 a.m., reaching an estimated height of 10 to 15 meters. The Director of OVSICORI, Victor Gonzalez, said the eruptions were not unusual for Poas, though did say that the low level of the volcano’s lagoon, despite significant rainfall, was striking. The National Emergency Commission (CNE) maintains a green alert in Turrialba, Poas and Rincon de la Vieja due to phreatic eruptions and seismic activity in recent months. Poas last erupted in 2011. –Inside Costa Rica

    I know it shouldn’t surprise me, but I’m still amazed at all the volcanic activity going on this year. I have to believe that all of this junk that’s spewing into our atmosphere is affecting our climate. There’s a lot of unusual weather going on around the world.

    Did you see the 6.2 this morning around San Marcos, Mexico this morning? It was followed by a 5.2 aftershock.

    I just read two more articles concerning sinkholes. I don’t know why they fascinate me so, but maybe it’s because I find them a bit frightening. But I thought you might like to see them.

    Men will wonder: “what it is going on? Is this the end?” and the sky will answer: No, It is not the end, but the beginning of the birth paths of creation! Seas will agitate, and huge waves will cause destruction and desolation in many nations. The core of the Earth will suffer large changes that make the continents displace, the earth will groan and stagger voicing its pain. Many places will be converted in deserts by the sun that makes it unlivable. Everything will change in a split of second and nothing will be as before. I announce inhabitants of Earth that is near the day of my just wrath; do not lose more of the little time left to go in search of things of the world! Do not ignore my words; do not put it in doubt for I AM THAT I AM the Alpha and Omega, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who speaks.

    I am expecting, perhaps not this year, but perhaps next to start to see exceptionally colder weather in parts of the USA that normally do not see much snow or consecutive daysiaround the freezing point or below during the winter months. The growing season will be shorter.
