Volcanic activity report for April 13

Volcanic Activity
April 2016 VOLCANO WATCH Santiaguito (Guatemala): A violent explosion associated with a partial dome collapse occurred Monday morning at the Caliente dome. The eruption generated an ash column that rose several kilometers and a pyroclastic flow that traveled through the canyon draining from the dome complex to the SE.
Since this event, the dome has returned to normal activity with only occasional smaller explosions. Weak effusive activity continues to generate rock falls on the dome’s eastern flank.
Fuego (Guatemala): Another paroxysm (the 6th this year so far) started last night at the volcano. Intermittent strombolian explosions merged into lava fountaining reaching 400 m height and increased lava effusion has been feeding a lava flow that had reached 2 km length into the Las Lajas ravine (SE side).
In its bulletin this morning, INSIVUMEH reports strong tremor accompanying the rise of new magma. An ash plume has been rising to 5,500 m a.s.l. and drifting 25 km drifting to the S, SW and W, where ash fall is occurring. Strong shock waves from the explosions at the summit can be felt in several kilometer radius.
People in the area should avoid being near in or near river beds, particularly on the SE side, because of the likely occurrence of pyroclastic flows – glowing avalanches triggered by the partial collapse of the steep lava flow, which can reach several kilometers length and have been produced during most of the volcano’s recent similar eruptive phases.
Nyiragongo (DRCongo): The secondary vent remains active, a recent visit (on 8 April) at the volcano showed. Lava continues to be erupted from the side vent on the eastern crater floor and occasionally still cascades into the main pit with the active lava lake – Volcano Discovery

    Found this site. says 40 volcanoes are erupting now world wide and all not on the ring of fire
    Also http://strangesounds.org/

    Alvin, so glad you back to tie people together on this site: So we can write and share information.
    So much going on, not one person can keep up.

    As an after thought. Everyone should keep eye on retirement accounts( 401’s) and IRA’s. I am getting ready to close my IRA out and pay off bills and what is left, have some cash on hand.
    Don’t want the government force me in a government monitored account which will steal my interest through taxes.

    I think that issues in our plates are being piled on. I am concerned about the elderly who will suffer the worst in the forthcoming crisis

    Has nothing to do with earthly volcanoes, has everything to do with economic volcano.
