Global earth changes appear to be accelerating once again, but the mainstream media in the United States is not talking about it, and so most Americans have absolutely no idea what is happening. Within the last 24 hours, we have seen close to 40 significant earthquakes of at least magnitude 2.5 along the Ring of Fire, but even more alarming are the two major volcanic eruptions which just took place. Mount Soputan is one of the most dangerous volcanoes in Indonesia, and it erupted twice on Sunday morning. According to the Daily Mail, authorities are reporting that hot volcanic ash was shot 25,000 feet into the sky…
A volcano in central Indonesia has erupted, sending columns of thick ash spewing as high as 25,000 feet into the sky.
Mount Soputan, a 6,000ft peak in Minahasa on the northern part of Sulawesi island, erupted twice on Sunday morning.
A two-and-a-half mile exclusion zone has been enforced around the mountain as the national disaster agency warns local residents to avoid the peak.
Those eruptions may have been more spectacular, but the eruption that we just witnessed down in Mexico is potentially much more concerning.
Mt. Popocatepetl has been called the most dangerous mountain in North America for a reason, and officials are carefully watching “Don Goyo” after it “exploded” on Saturday evening…
The active volcano Popocatepetl, located in Central Mexico, has exploded Saturday evening, sending ash two kilometers into the air with the cloud of smoke moving in a northeast direction.
Videos from the eruption show a powerful explosion and traces of magma flowing out of the crater. Possible ash fall is expected in areas surrounding the summit. At the moment the volcanic warning issued by the Federal Civil Protection remains at ‘Phase 2’.
Approximately 25 million people live within striking distance of Mt. Popocatepetl, and scientists assure us that someday the 5,426-meter-high “smoking mountain” will devastate the entire Mexico City region.
And when I say “devastate”, I am not just talking about a disaster that will inconvenience people for a few weeks.
I am talking about an event which will cause death and destruction on an absolutely immense scale. According to the experts, in the distant past “Don Goyo” actually produced gigantic mud flows that buried entire Aztec cities…
Historians tell us that Popocatepetl had a dramatic impact on the ancient Aztecs. Giant mud flows produced by massive eruptions covered entire Aztec cities. In fact, some of these mud flows were so large that they buried entire pyramids in super-heated mud.
But we haven’t witnessed anything like that in any of our lifetimes, so it is hard to even imagine devastation of that magnitude.
In addition to Mexico City’s mammoth population, there are millions of others that live in the surrounding region. Overall, there are about 25 million people that live in the immediate vicinity of Popocatepetl. Thankfully, we haven’t seen a major eruption of the volcano in modern times, but at some point that will change.
Meanwhile, significant earthquakes continue to rattle areas all along the Ring of Fire.
Indonesia was hit by a magnitude 6.1 earthquake within the last 24 hours, and a magnitude 5.9 earthquake in Australia made headlines all over the world…
A 5.9 magnitude eathquake has struck Western Australia, 203km northwest of Carnarvon at 22.26pm local time (2.26pm BST) at a depth of 10km.
Locals in Carnarvon reported feling tremors, after the massive earthquake shook the region this afternoon.
