We were watching for additional new volcanic activity to pick up in Chile after this past weeks major unrest across the Pacific, and the flurry of rare earthquakes which occurred from Las Vegas, to England.

On May 21st, a forecast was issued for Chile to see new volcanic activity over this week.

Watch the 5/21/2015 forecast for Chile here:


Yesterday, a volcano off the coast of Northern South America erupted unexpectedly (Wolf Volcano in the Galapagos islands)  after being silent for 33 years – last eruption of Wolf was in 1982.


One day after this eruption to the North at Wolf volcano , a large earthquake strikes directly at the base of San Pedro volcano in Chile.

Clearly the global unrest event is still underway.
