In what appears to be a fairly standard event for this region, the Anathan Volcano has recently erupted, sending a plume of volcanic ash far almost ten miles into the atmosphere. As a result, air traffic has been routed away from the area and locals have been advised to avoid breathing ash and drinking water from sources contaminated by ash.

Anatahan Volcano erupted Wednesday morning, shooting a thick plume of ash 50,000 feet into the air and darkening the skies over this tiny U.S. territory in the Pacific.

The eruption is at least the fourth in the past two years. The Northern Mariana Islands, about 3,800 miles southwest of Hawaii, have nine active volcanoes. They are home to about 70,000 people.

After the obviously heightened seismic activity in the Pacific region surrounding Indonesia, one wonders if this activity could be related. It seems that this volcano is relatively active already which may not have much impact on the region's recent rumblings. On the other hand, this could be a sign of the residual effects of the major shifts which have recently occurred in the region and could indicate activity which is moving eastward in a reaction to the recent pressure releases. If so, such activity does not bode well for the west coast of the US.

It is obvious there is more geological activity, then there has been in any of our lifetimes. something is up, is it just a big relief in tension in plates? does it also have to do with global warming?
