Well something happened. I was pulling data from the webicoders now three are out and reading
We are sorry webicoder Pusunglondon station was not working, because the station hit by explosion
We are sorry webicoder Klatakan station was not working, because the stations affected by the eruption.
We are sorry webicoder pure-bred station was not working, because the stations affected by the eruption.
I did get foggy images from the new camera before I left work.

Monday 8th November 2010
Merapi Volcano, Indonesia
Merapi volcano, Indonesia remains at the highest RED level alert. Over the past day pyroclastic flows extended 4 km from the crater. Ash emissions rose to a height of 4 km today. Some residents have ignored warnings to stay out of the danger areas, and have returned to their land to feed animals. Eruptions have been high intensity, and have been occurring continually since 3rd November. This is the largest eruption of Merapi volcano in over 100 years. The death toll is 141, and 300,000 people have been evacuated. The safe area for evacuees continues to be a radius of 20 km from the crater. International flights to Jakarta returned to normal today. The sulphur dioxide cloud from eruption of Merapi volcano has reached the coast of western Australia. The SO2 cloud has reached an altitude of 50,000 ft over the Indian Ocean.

I am still trying to figure out how to cut and paste news from other sites here but this is the latest I have found on Merapi Volcano.

The thought has crossed my mind that we are getting sparce information about this eruption considering that it is supposedly THREE times bigger than Anak Krakatoa. I mean Merapi looks as though she is getting ready to really blow her top and we get next to nothing as far as eruption info.

OK This Cam is the latest/new Cam for Merapi - we don't know at this one will show us - please keep trying old cam as well.

posted on Nov, 9 2010 @ 06:29 AM
There is a definite increase in activity over the past hour on the merapi webicorders. Looks to me like its building up to something.

See for your self.

No that is the same one and is just as stuck pointing at the stars.

@BillRose - re pasting. Don't forget that you should only paste a small bit of an article and then link it. Don't want to see you getting warnings for T & C infringements, or worse still banned.

Oh good they have that one working again. What you are seeing there is tremor. That is 'normal' under these circumstances. When it was working yesterday I was watching that increase/decrease at regular intervals.

Edit: Oh
It looks as if it has stopped at 12:32.

I have set this up in my program to grab it every 10 minutes but.........
edit on 9/11/2010 by PuterMan because: To add more information edit box. You see when us humans find out some more information we have this insane desire to communicate this to other humans who are of a like mind. Of course being an edit box you probably have no concept of this, but rest assured that this is all I am trying to do and not changing my post for any nefarious purposes. Thanks

Could not see any seismo info on that link but really it is too big and full of tweets and other rubbish that does not interest me.

Here the latest from Erik Klemetti

Eruption Updates (11/9/2010) for Merapi and Bulusan
Erik Klemetti on November 9, 2010, 12:45 PM
A couple of updates on two of the volcanoes that have caught people's attention right now! Oh yes, and sorry about the brevity of many of these updates lately - time, it seems to disappear much faster right now, so I've had to spend a little less time on the posts than I'd normally like. However, a big "thank you" to all of you Eruptions readers for picking up my slack and adding all the details and information that I have missed in regards to all this volcanic activity. The blog wouldn't be the same without you.

Bulusan, Philippines: The restive volcano experience another set of explosions yesterday and today, again producing fairly small plume of only ~1 km / 3,300 feet, but it is enough to give PHIVOLCS pause about the threat to the area near the volcano. Additional monitoring equipment has been moved to the volcano and local residents have been warned about the potential for lahars to be generated by these small explosions - in fact, one lahar has already damaged part of a highway near Bulusan. PHIVOLCS has also warned aircraft near the volcano about the potential ash hazard from these explosions, along with warning people on the northwest and southwest sides of Bulusan about potential ash fall. Local officials are already making plans for potential evacuations.

Merapi, Indonesia: Over in Indonesia, Merapi continues on in its current eruption, albeit at a slightly less energetic state. Syamsui Maarig, Head of National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB), reported that explosions at Merapi have become less frequent (indonesian) over the last 24 hours - and he gave the first estimate I've seen on an erupted volume: ~0.14 km3. That multiple is relatively small and what I might have guess from the pictures of the ash fall I have seen - and would put this as a ~VEI 3-4 eruption so far. James Reynolds has tweeted some stunning images of the damage caused by ash near the volcano, with trees and structures heavy strained by the weight of the ash. As the eruption marches on, the ash plume looms large over Yogjakarta (video) and the city's airport has been closed until at least next Monday. Now, over 320,000 people have had to flee from the activity, with over 200 people missing, including children lost in the chaos of the evacuations. If you want to try to keep an eye on the activity, there is a new webcam for Merapi that appears to be working, so check it out.


A lot going on here in Volcano world

IV. Recommendation
Due to the high volcanic activity G. Merapi and the status is still defined
Beware level, it is recommended as follows:
1. In order for an investigation of volcanic ash that could potentially interfere with the path
flights to and from Field International Airport in Yogyakarta Adisucipto.
2. There are no activities of the people in disaster prone areas III, particularly those living in
about the flow of the river (the threat of danger awanpanas and lava) that tipped in G. Merapi

I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but I have been watching Yellowstone for some time now. Most days there are 10 to 20 quakes at Yellowstone. Today the map is showing 57 and counting!

I'm not even sure how to prepare for this one. If Yellowstone blows it will be devastating.

Here is a link to the most recent map:
