I don't know if it's a mistake yet, but now there's another odd ball earthquake. I know that Puerto Rico has more earthquakes than most places in the
world, but just below the island there's a nice 5.5 M bump near Saint-Pierre, Martinique. In 1902, the volcano blew it's top most spectacularly. The
Caribbean Volcanoes are amazing and equally forgettable. I make it an effort not to forget the eruption of Montserrat, whole villages and cities were
buried by lava. Here's a video of Montserrat. There's no video of Pelee.
There may be no video of Pelee 1902, but there is photographic evidence.
And just keeping track, Northern Idaho is popping off again.
Sorry, have to add stuff I've read. It would appear that just before full eruption of Mt. Pelee, several people climbed the mountain to have a look.
In other words, we have eye witnesses that observed the location as the eruption was in it's early stages. Here's the quote that blows my mind. The
quote is related to my favorite subject, water. There was a lake near the top of the volcano.
"On April 27, several excursionists climbed the mountaintop to find Étang Sec filled with water, forming a lake 180 m (590 ft) across. There was a 15
m (50 ft) high cone of volcanic debris built up on one side, feeding the lake with a steady stream of boiling water. Sounds resembling a cauldron with
boiling water were heard from deep underground. The strong smell of sulfur was all over the city, 6.4 km (4.0 mi) away from the volcano, causing
discomfort to people and horses."
It appears that an old crater, which was called "DRY LAKE" was filled with water. HMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then we have explosions in the next few days. The fuel for those explosions was the water. I haven't dug up any old reports on the weather, because
even if I tried I'd probably not find any, but whatever, somehow the lake was filled with water. Given that fact, it would appear that heavy rains
preceding the eruption was most likely. Again, this major eruption was probably phreatic. Again, Above Top Secret is telling me phreatic is spelled
wrong. Okay the, it was a hydro-thermal explosion. same thing
water water water
without it, nothing happens
Another video to watch is on the Reno 2008 swarm. For no other reason than, that's what I'm watching now to keep following the shakes. any way, it's
interesting because they go over earthquake basics.
And I'm sorry, while I was watching the video I felt like it was all a joke. Why, because after the big 5M, you had many people calling...
