5/09/2015 — 4.5 magnitude earthquake strikes Hawaii — Flank of Mauna Loa Volcano

Hawaii now showing larger earthquake activity.

After a rapid buildup of lava inside the lava lake of Kilauea volcano over the past 2 weeks, a magnitude 4.5 earthquake has now struck the flanks Mauna Loa , and Kilauea Volcanoes.

This 4.5M earthquake follows a swarm of events which has struck over the past 2 weeks.

We have seen dozens of 2.0 – 3.0M range events off the South shores of the Big Island of Hawaii which led up to this larger 4.5M earthquake.

Over the past 7 days (up to May 9, 2015) the buildup has been quite clear.

5/09/2015 — Western Yellowstone Magma chamber movement — Dormant volcanic activity rising

Yesterday (May 8th) I made a full post about how the 10 most recent earthquakes in California were at dormant volcanic locations.

This California dormant volcano movement follows the news that a new volcanic eruption is occurring off the West coast of the United States near Oregon.

Today (May 9th), we see a moderate magnitude 3.0 earthquake strike at the Westernmost portion of the upper Yellowstone magma chamber.

The magma chamber was verified to extend far West into Idaho, and North into Montana via new measurements done in 2014, and now again in 2015.

Above: Graphic shows the most recent 3.0M location vs. the location of the magma chamber associated with Yellowstone Supervolcano. Clearly the earthquake in Idaho falls right in line with the Western upper edge of the underground magma chamber.  Thus we know the earthquakes in Idaho are related to the magma chamber for Yellowstone.

_________

New Measurements were done on the underground magma chamber as of late April 2015.

They have found 11,500 cubic miles in a new LOWER chamber, the equivalent of over 11 grand canyons full of molten magma which feeds the upper chamber.

The upper chamber is one of the largest in the world already, with this new discovery about the 11 grand canyons worth of magma underneath Yellowstone, no doubt this is the largest supervolcano in the world for the moment.

See the new April 2015 Yellowstone magma chamber measurement results in the video below.

5/09/2015 — Mount Karangetang Volcano erupts in Indonesia — Hundreds evacuated

A large eruption has occurred at Mount Karangetang Sulawesi in Indonesia.

________

This past weeks volcano activity in Indonesia follows announcements that Bulusan Volcano in the Philippines is showing signs of eruption  as well as Mount Hakone in Japan showing signs after being dormant for nearly 800 years!

Also, May 8 2015, ELEVEN eruptions in 1 single day at Sakurajima Volcano in South Japan.  Clearly the West Pacific is on the move.

________

Hundreds flee from Mt.
Karangetang activity

May 8, 2015 – Screenshot from mobile phone video capture of the newest large eruption of Mount Karangetang in Sulawesi Indonesia. Over 500 people evacuated from nearby towns as the eruption sent a blast of hot ash down the flanks of the mountainsides.

“Hundreds of residents of Siau, Sitaro Islands regency, North Sulawesi, have fled to safer ground after Mount Karangetang erupted.

Mt. Karangetang erupted at 12:30 p.m. local time on Thursday, prompting residents in Bebali subdistrict, East Siau district, in Siau, Tagulandang and Biaro (Sitaro) Islands regency to seek refuge.

Thursday’s eruption discharged lava and sent volcanic ash and pyroclastic flows in the direction of the Batuawang River in East Siau district. The eruption caused panic among residents, who fled the area. People initially took shelter in the Bebali subdistrict office, but moved to the East Siau district administrative office in Ulu after volcanic activity increased.

Mt. Karangetang Observation Station head Yudia Tatipang said the volcano’s alert status remained the same despite the significant increase in volcanic activity.

“The alert status remains at level 3. Pyroclastic flows frequently occur,” said Yudia by phone.

He added that the volcano activity gave no signs of abating soon. “Residents are advised not to return home until further notice,” he said.

“This is the first time we have witnessed a massive eruption,” said Bebali district resident Junico Kasiuhe, 35.

According to Junico, Bebeli residents panicked and fled to safety.

“Residents are terrified of the pyroclastic flows as they are rapid and hundreds of lives could be lost in a matter of seconds. That’s why we immediately took the initiative to evacuate,” said Junico.

Kanang villager Harto Narasiang said the wind had carried volcanic ash to Karalung and Kanang villages in East Siau district.

“The blanket of ash can be 2 centimeters thick and has affected roads in both villages,” said Harto.

Sitaro Disaster Mitigation Center (BPBD) head Bob Wuaten said village administration offices had evacuated about 2,000 residents.

“The BPBD has evacuated about 465 residents to three shelters from both villages,” said Bob.

Besides the shelters, residents have also taken shelter at other residents’ homes. “We evacuated those living within a 200-meter radius from the lava flow. Currently, four homes have been buried by volcanic ash,” he said.

He added that the North Sulawesi provincial administration, BPBD and the local health office had provided relief aid. He urged residents to remain alert and to wear masks, especially those living along the Batuawang River.

East Siau district chief Wilman Panguliman said there was still volcanic activity as of Friday afternoon, although not as much as Thursday.

He added that aid supplies remained available, but evacuees needed mattresses and blankets.

Mt. Karangetang is also known as Api Siau, or Siau Fire. It is one of the most active volcanoes in Indonesia as it has erupted more than 40 times since 1675 and has had undocumented innumerable minor eruptions. An eruption in 1997 killed three people, while in August 2010 four people went missing during an evacuation effort.

The volcano is among a number of other volcanoes currently showing signs of activity, including mounts Soputan and Lokon in North Sulawesi, Mt. Gamalama in North Maluku, Mt. Slamet in Central Java and Mt. Sinabung in North Sumatra.”

5/08/2015 — Texas Railroad Commission orders tests on “frack” wells after 4.0M earthquake #winning

After a magnitude 4.0 earthquake strikes the South Dallas / Venus, TX fracking operations, the Texas Railroad Commission now sees the light on fracking earthquakes!

The commission has now ordered the operators of the wells nearby the 4.0 magnitude earthquake to undergo inspections in light of this larger seismic event.

Now I know for certain the fracking earthquake message is being heard by the people who need to hear it most.  #winning

Thanks to all the viewers, and readers who are sharing the information – we are seeing results from your efforts!

(thanks to James Dalek Smith for sharing the news on this)

texas fracking earthquake may 7 2015 4.0

The operators are:

  • Bosque Disposal Systems, LLC
  • EOG Resources, Inc.
  • MetroSaltwater Disposal, Inc.
  • Pinnergy, Ltd.

The TRC (Texas Railroad Commission) is charged with the approval, and permitting of all oil / gas wells in the state of Texas.

Here is my video showing the operations in question:

Quote the Associated Press news release on this TRC order:

http://www.startribune.com/texas-orders-disposal-well-testing-near-4-0-magnitude-quake/303143661/

“AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas Railroad Commission is requiring the operators of five disposal wells near a sharp earthquake to perform some tests.

 

In a statement Friday, the commission says Bosque (BAHS’-kee) Disposal Systems LLC, EOG Resources Inc., MetroSaltwater Disposal Inc. and Pinnergy Ltd have agreed to shut down the wells temporarily until results are in on the tests, which will be made within days. The testing will help determine the effect of wastewater injection into subsurface rock formations in the area where a 4.0 magnitude earthquake was centered Thursday about 30 miles southwest of Dallas

The quake was the sharpest ever detected in North Texas. It injured no one but caused minor damage to two mobile home foundations.”

________

Up until recently, literally up until this noteworthy 4.0M earthquake, the commission had been in full denial on the relation between earthquakes , and “fracking” / wastewater injection.  We had seen a swarm of earthquakes build to this larger event, which the TRC was warned would happen.

Being the ardent researcher I am, unfortunately I had to call them out publicly, notify my Texas viewers to put pressure on their local officials, and make a public mockery of their denials.

The back and forth began almost 4 months ago:

5/08/2015 — ELEVEN large volcanic eruptions in 1 days time! South Japan at Sakurajima Volcano

May 8, 2015

11 separate large blasts occurred at Sakurajima Volcano on mainland South Japan in just one days time.

11 eruptions japan 1 day may 8 2015

____

I have assembled a phenomenal 30 minute montage video of the eruptions , some of which last fairly long.  These were compiled from throughout the day today (May 8, 2015).

7 large daytime eruptions, and 4 large eruptions after dark. Then the feed was CUT by the Japanese webcam host!

This is like 2011 all over again, multiple large eruptions at Sakurajima means pressure is building in the region. Sakurajima is like a pressure gauge on the Pacific plate, when we see Sakurajima show major activity, we can expect large earthquake activity to follow in nearby adjacent areas just to the North and just to the South of this location in Japan.

These 11 eruptions were recorded via video capture from the streaming webcams provided by the University of Tokyo, and the JSA.

You can watch (record) your own videos of this volcano using the webcams on http://www.volcanodiscovery.com

_______

This new volcanic activity comes on the heels of multiple large earthquakes in the West Pacific, the announcement that a dormant volcano near Tokyo (silent for 800 years) is coming to life, and with a new Eruption in the Philippines.

All this happened after deep movement in the Asthenosphere below the West Pacific.

Studies (and tests in the field) have been done which prove Asthenosphere movement (deep below the plate) causes shallow movement upon the plate above.

When the deep movement occurs, it displaces a larger region above the epicenter, the magma chambers located between the Asthenosphere, and the crust are also displaced, which then produces earthquake + volcano activity.

See more on the deep asthenosphere findings here:
