USGS: Magma Rising In Mount St. Helens Volcano

Magma rising in Mount St. Helens volcano, says USGS (Ice Age Now, May 15, 2014):

No sign of impending eruption – Crater Glacier growing rapidly


“The magma reservoir beneath Mount St. Helens has been slowly re-pressurizing since 2008,” the U.S. Geological Survey said in a statement on April 30, 2014. “It is likely that re-pressurization is caused by (the) arrival of a small amount of additional magma 4 to 8 km (2.5 to 5 miles) beneath the surface.”

The USGS said this is to be expected with an active volcano and does not indicate “the volcano is likely to erupt anytime soon.”

When Mount St. Helens, a volcano in Washington State, erupted on May 18, 1980, it crushed entire forests and altered local river systems.


What this article doesn’t mention


What this article doesn’t mention, is that that eruption also melted the glaciers at the top of the mountain sending a deadly slurry of ice, mud, huge trees, bulldozers, and anything else in the way, in a mad rush down the Toutle River.

At the time of the 1980 eruption, 11 named glaciers radiated down the flanks of the volcano along with two small unnamed glaciers and numerous perennial snowfields, according to the USGS. The largest glaciers extended about 2.5 (1.5 mi) from the ice-filled summit crater. The cataclysmic landslide and eruption removed about 70% of the glacier mass.

Volcanoes All Over The Ring Of Fire Are Erupting Right Now – Is The U.S. Next?

Volcanoes All Over The Ring Of Fire Are Erupting Right Now – Is The U.S. Next? (Economic Collapse, April 8, 2014):

All of a sudden, the Ring of Fire is starting to tremble violently.  Last month, we had a whole bunch of major earthquakes along the Ring of Fire, and this month volcanoes all over the Ring of Fire are erupting.  Of course there has always been seismic activity within this giant band that stretches around the Pacific Ocean.  After all, approximately 75 percent of all volcanoes are located in the Ring of Fire and approximately 90 percent of all global earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire.  But what is alarming is that the level of activity appears to be rising.  Chile is experiencing almost constant shaking by earthquakes, a volcano in Peru just awakened for the first time in 40 years, and major volcanic eruptions have just taken place in Ecuador, the Kamchatka peninsula and off the coast of Japan.  The west coast of the United States also lies along the Ring of Fire, but so far it has gotten off easy.  Yes, there has been a little bit of shaking in southern California in recent weeks, but it hasn’t been too bad.  But scientists assure us that will change.  At some point, there will be a major seismic event along the west coast.  It is only a matter of time.

Unfortunately, the mainstream media in the United States pays very little attention to seismic activity around the rest of the world unless it happens in a heavily populated area.  But the truth is that we have been witnessing some very unusual things lately.

What Would An Eruption Of The Yellowstone Supervolcano Look Like?

Yellowstone-Eruption

What Would An Eruption Of The Yellowstone Supervolcano Look Like? (The Truth, March 31, 2014):

On Sunday, the worst earthquake in about 30 years rattled the Yellowstone supervolcano.  Overall, there have been at least 25 significant earthquakes at Yellowstone National Park since Thursday, but it is the 4.8 earthquake that has many observers extremely worried.  Could such a large earthquake be a sign that the Yellowstone supervolcano is starting to roar to life after all this time?  And if it does erupt, what would that mean for the rest of the country?  As you will see below, a full-blown eruption at Yellowstone would be absolutely catastrophic.  It is estimated that such an eruption could dump a 10 foot deep layer of volcanic ash up to 1,000 miles away and render much of the nation uninhabitable for years to come.  In essence, it would instantly bring the United States to its knees.

It is true that it is normal for Yellowstone to experience up to 3,000 earthquakes a year.  But most of those earthquakes are extremely small and nothing to worry about.

But the 4.8 earthquake that struck on Sunday is definitely raising eyebrows – especially considering what else has been going on at Yellowstone lately.

BREAKING: Yellowstone’s Supervolcano Belly Rumbling (The Resistance Journals, Feb 3, 2014):

A seismometer inside a borehole at Yellowstone National Park has begun reporting staggering underground activity near the southwest corner of Yellowstone Lake, possibly signaling the beginning of an eruption of the Super Volcano at the Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park is home to many beauties, with it’s ancient landscape, geysers, and hot springs. It is also the site of one of the worlds most destructive forces. A supervolcano.

Mount Etna’s Dramatic New Eruption: Video (LiveScience, Feb 19, 2013):

Italy’s Mount Etna sent lava and gas shooting toward the stars early this morning (Feb. 19), the first big eruption for the volcano in 2013.

The famous Sicilian volcano burst to life overnight, sending a fountain of fire into the air. The dramatic scene was captured in a video by Klaus Dorschfeldt, a videographer and webmaster at Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology.

New Zealand Volcano Could Erupt At Any Moment

White Island could erupt at any moment (New Zealand Herald, Jan 25, 2013):

Unsettled activity at White Island, which has prompted authorities to raise alert levels, indicates the volcano could erupt at any moment.

But exactly if, when, or how that may occur remains unclear as scientists gather more data from the off-shore Bay of Plenty volcano, which has been in an eruptive cycle since last August.

Over previous months, a jagged lava dome plugging magma below has emerged in the volcano, which is New Zealand’s most active.
