Reported as the largest eruption in a decade with large ash cloud and pyroclastic flows....
Tuesday 24th May 2005
Colima Volcano in Mexico erupted on Tuesday 24th May. An observed ash cloud reached 32,000 ft elevation and produced pyroclastic flows which traveled 4-5 km. Ash drifted 110 nautical miles west of the volcano. The eruption was the largest at Colima in more than a decade.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

More trouble for the worlds volcanos. Is HAARP active or are we seeing more shakeups from the large quake in Sumatra?? Only time will tell but there is more trouble on the pacific plate to make one wonder....

Image link of the eruption below. Looks like it was pretty big!

Nice post... short and sweet...

Hope no one was in the ashfall or pyroclastic range...
does anyone know if there were fatalities
Did any scientific watch group predict this?

I noticed the source stated that there was earlier activity.

Colima volcano in Mexico erupted on Tuesday, sending molten lava a mile from the crater and starting forest fires. The eruption was the strongest at the volcano since March 2004, and sent ash into the nearby city of Jalisco.

The film is awesome. I hope everyone is all right.

Also, a AltaVista translation of the bulletin said the pyroclastic flow was estimated to be moving at 240km per hour....

This was a normal eruption in my opinion. Volcanoes erupt, that's basically what they do. Volcanoes erupted long before Tesla, and will continue to erupt on a regular basis without requiring any 'help' from the illuminati.

So once again, in my opinion, this was just a normal eruption, with normal causative factors and normal consequences.

I agree, volcanoes to tend to blow their tops and the people that choose to live near them are always in harms way....

What are all those numbers you posted Wyrdeone?

The video is terrific. Wish they had that whole sequence in slow motion.
Does anyone know if this volcano spouts posionous gas?

Those numbers I posted were dates of previous eruptions of this volcano. Sorry, I should have been more clear. I was just trying to make the point that this eruption was not out of the ordinary or strangely placed, or novel in any way.

And as far as poisonous gas..all volcanoes release some quantity of gas, as far as I understand. The level of toxicity might have been measured, but I'm not sure. Generally, the more explosive and damaging the eruption, the greater the amount of gas released. The gas is the engine that drives the eruption, a faster, more violent eruption requires greater pressures from below, and hence, more gas. This eruption wasn't insanely powerful, so my layman's guess would be that an 'average' amount of gas was released.

A good look at the slope of that volcano's sides (which appear very steep) gives me the impression that pyroclastic flows would be common. It also suggests to me that really powerful eruptions (a la Pinatubo or Mt. St. Helens) probably don't happen because the caldera up there couldn't possibly be very large. Of course I don't know a damn thing about volcanos except that I like to watch them blow their top.
