With all the recent activity surrounding volcano’s I decided to make a thread where we can report all the recent activity and keep up to date with the latest news and events surrounding volcanos,

A few help full links,


I will start with a volcano that has erupted today,

Volcano: La Cumbre
Place : Galapagos islands

Event: LA Cumbre began releasing Lava and gas on Saturday evening in the Galapagos Islands,
La Cumbre is located on the Fernandina Island which is not inhabited; The Volcano has not been active since 2005
Is situated in a national park and there is concerns that this may effect the local wild life,

Well, I bet you never knew............... but let me tell you a little secret...........

I am totally into watchinig volcanos!! Bet that comes out as a surprise for you!!
OH, yeah, you can add earthquakes as a "watch" for me too.

Ok, don't look SO surprised at this information!

Seems there were many volcanos around the end of March that had an event, I did a thread on it.... the ring of fire volcanos are waking up right now.

Actually there is lots of info right now.. also about what is up at the Salton Seas swarm that is happening in S. Calif. seems there is actually a volcano under there, also under the Richmond Washington swarms, which is where the biggest nuke waste site in the U.S. is. OH and put on that OMG surprise face again............... yep................ I did a thread about that too!!!

Seems, some are wondering if there is a volcano under there, OH, btw: seems activity is happening around Mt. St. Helen too.

Yea, I might just participate in this thread some.... though, jeez, I just don't know if I really have much info to add to it!!

As long as some of my volcano threads are being added, I will go ahead and throw this one in too. It is on the Tonga volcano, there are gorgeous pictures in it from the eruption.

Wow, have I really done all these various threads about the Earth? Okay, I guess I am not just a "conspiracy" nut but I am an "Earth" nut too.

Im watching the big one in La Palma in the Canary Islands....My parents live there and i wish they would leave.....i use this site to keep my eye on it

Yeah, that one is a tough one, with the side that could slide in,

did you know that scientist just 2 weeks ago are now worried about the same thing happening in Dominica - in the Caribbean. A side of it is splitting and also could slide into the ocean creating a huge tsunami.

I need to find that link about it. But of course, most people don't know about these new findings. And believe it or not............ I don't even post 99% of information I find about things here.

Here are some good "volcano" sites besides the ones in the OP

I have to say, there is one volcano, which makes me completely sad about it's eruption.

Soufriere Hills - Montserrat, West Indies - that island was awesome!!!

I walked all around the top of that volcano before it exploded. What was also totally cool, was it had black sand on the beaches, but also hot springs right next to the beach. You could go into hot springs and then jump in the ocean.

Besides the fact the volcano completely wiped away the town of Plymouth - which had a great history on it's own.

One thing, people don't know, is there was a recording studio on the island, which the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney etc, recorded some albums at.

BUT - the part that was MOST fun for me, was when I was there as a teenager (on a sailboat) a medical college had just opened up - the month before we got to the island.

WELL - let me tell you...... there were 350 guys and 20 girls enroled in it, 1/2 the girls were married...... so as my 2 sisters and I figured out..... it was a ratio about 100 guys to one of us!!! YEAH, it was an awesome time, we would go into town and be surrounded by guys!!! AAHHH the memories.... we had such a fun time on that island. But our dad couldn't take it anymore as guys were constantly trying to swim to our boat to get our attention!!!

Memories.... love them!

Sorry I had to add that, because the island was amazing - but the volcano wiped it out, there is only one little section that is liveable now, up by the airport. Sad.

Just Found this site which is interesting........
I lived in La Palma for 2 years and walked around that volcano with my dad! Scary experience but a good 1

I moved to one of the other islands called Fuerteventura after that and used to spend my Sundays visiting the Inactive volcanos and lava tubes! People thought i was mad but it was a good hangover cure

There was one place called Ajuy on the West coast of the island and had amazing lava tubes in the cliff side....have tried to attach a pic but not sure what im doing ha ha

OK asala you owe me for not one but two boxes of ricearoni! I like the vermicelli slightly burn or at least a few here and there but dinner is burnt! It was not until I saw the smoke rising from the kitchen that I realized I was so engrossed in this fascinating thread that yes it was not the images of spewing lava flows but the burnt cinders of our dinner...

Now I usually dont try and predict things but I had a strange lucid dream where I saw two twin volcanoes erupting. The larger one was really going strong and then the smaller one to its south was also beginning to erupt.

I am not familiar with twin volcanoes, looked like they were close to the ocean somewhere.

Evacuations were underway and yet far too many people and animals were still vulnerable.

This was just a few nights ago along with a dream that I was bit by two snakes. But that usually signifies watching my back...

3 mounts are showing more activity in Sumatra Indonesia,

Mt. Kerinci has shown more activity since Sunday causing ash to spew up 400ft

Im sure this has to do with the recent amount of quakes there lately,
Though i do fear its been a little to quiet this week, Just hope a big quake is not on the cards very soon,

One to watch for sure,

Krakatoa is waking up lots, I went ahead and did a thread about it, since it was the biggest volcanic eruption in man's history on Earth.

The thread is here:

Hey, I just want to remind everyone - Krakatoa had created a tsunami 120 feet high when it blew in 1883 - so in saying that.... remember this thread:

It is live webcams throughout the Pacific - I sincerely hope we will not have to go to it, anytime in the near future - to watch for events, but just in case - it is now embedded here - for easy access.

Two volcanoes in Congo might erupt at any time.

DRC-RWANDA: Volcanic activity "threatens Goma"

Recent volcanic activity in the Nyiragongo and Nyamulagira peaks in North Kivu Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has triggered fears that the 600,000 people in Goma could be under threat, according to specialists.

Dieudonne Wafula, head of Goma's Volcanological Observatory, told IRIN on 7 May that the two volcanoes had shown early warnings of eruption.

"The volcanoes could erupt any time; it could be in two days, or a week or two but not later than two months from now," Wafula said, adding that the most at-risk areas were villages east of Nyamulagira.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Nyiragongo Volcano (with pictures)

Scientist say eruption will happen anytime at Nyiragongo.


Scientists found evidence of intense volcanic activity - including tremors, pools of lava and plumes of smoke - at two volcanoes near a major city in eastern Congo, and said some residents had fled for fear of an eruption.

The volcanoes in the central African nation could be about to erupt, threatening Goma, which has a population of more than half a million people, scientists said Thursday. They made their observations on visits to the two volcanic peaks of Nyiragongo and Nyamulagira.

"The eruption could be tomorrow, or the day after - or at any other time," said Dieudonne Wafula, the head of Goma's Volcanological Observatory.

The Nyiragongo crater is only 11 miles (18 kilometers) north of Lake Kivu, where Goma is located. Wafula estimates that 1.3 million people are threatened by the two volcanoes, including the residents of Goma, the villages surrounding it and the inhabitants of Gisenyi, located across the Rwandan border.

"The villagers living near Nyiragongo have already left their villages after they saw the volcano shake today. They thought it was already erupting," Wafula said.

He said government agencies and Red Cross workers were making preparations, although the country's infrastructure has been destroyed by decades of civil war.

Nyiragongo is listed as one of the eight most dangerous volcanoes in the world and its lava can flow at up to 24 miles (40 kilometers) per hour, according to Wafula.

To see more about this volcano - I had done a thread about it a couple of months ago - due to scientist feeling it has direct magma from the Earth's core - this magma flows faster than any other on the Earth.
