Strange indeed. Especially as I see the seismic activity being very low in the past few weeks ..

Not sure how this all works, but there were several eartquakes in Japan and Russia in the last day.

Is that all is needed to spur an eruption? Or do they usually show activity well before an eruption?

I also have been asking myself lately, have things always been this interesting with so many diffent events taking place, or have I just started paying attention?

I belive most of the earthquakes, and volcanos are a result of our draining the blood of the earth out "oil", Oil is a natrual lubricant that lubricates the tectonic plates,with oil around the plates,there is less friction adn upon collistion less energy relesed.This is just my opion of why the earth is rumblin alot lately, we are draining the earth oil pan. so ya the engine is gona get hot.

Seems logical to me that the recent volcanic events are related. The way I understand it is that the Pacific Plate is rotating counter clockwise. With Redoubt, Sakurajima, and those on the Kamchatcka penninsula siting on the plate boundries this could have dire consequences. The ring of fire is concerning to say the least.

Mt. Asama, which is 145 kilometers west of Tokyo, erupted Monday at 1:51 a.m. (0451 GMT)

I know it's a bad habit, but I love noise in the background while I am perusing ATS. The day before last, on the weather channel, they had an alert, or a report that something is going to blow in Alaska very soon. Now mind you, I found this odd, being on the weather channel, and my ears perked up just at the end of the report.

This is all in the ring of fire, no?

Also, I love to look at USGS, and there were a lot of earthquakes in Alaska last year, but there always seems to be.

I hope nothing drastic comes of this.

I think that the frequency of volcanoes and earthquakes is normal. What is happening is the Internet. You used to read about these things on page 12 of the paper if you bothered.

I'm in Anchorage and Redoubt is set to go about a hundred miles south. The ash will come right over us as the airflow is at this time. We will get a little ash and it will be a nuisance for a bit, but it likely won't be dangerous.

As to the Virgins. We are fresh out. If somebody would like to send some our way?

Karl, Have you seen the trembles around Mt Hood recently?

It's gettin pretty wild in the PacNW.

Interesting threads, this and the one on yellowstone.

FYI - It was announced on the 11pm ABC Eyewitness News, there was a 2.9 earthquake centered Morristown NJ just after 10:30

The sun is quiet, planets are moving, thus earth is acting up.

The truth is stranger than fiction.
