The Extinction Protocol

Colima Volcano
January 2015MEXICOMexican authorities said a volcano eruption caught on webcam blasted ash at least 13,000 feet into the air, but did not pose a danger to the public. The Colima volcano, located on the border of southwestern states Colima and Jalisco, erupted about 9:13 a.m. Wednesday and blasted ash about 13,000 feet into the air. Time-lapse video of the eruption and an earlier burst of ash Monday were recorded by a webcam placed in 2013 to monitor the volcano, which has erupted more than 40 times since the 16th century. Volcán de Colima, also known as the Fire Volcano, erupted on Jan. 25, in the latest in a string of eruptions at the most active volcano in the Colima Volcanic Complex. The youngest of the complex’s three volcanoes also erupted on January 3, 10 and 14.

Volcano Watch
January 2015VOLCANIC ACTIVITYBardarbunga (Central Iceland): The visible intensity of the eruption continues to decrease gradually. The Icelandic Met office conducted air-borne measurements of the lava field last week, showing that it has significantly thickened (rather than expanded laterally) during the past weeks, and is now estimated to contain approx. 1.4 cubic kilometers of lava. Effusion rates, although decreasing, are still close to an impressive 100 m³ per second.
Fogo(Cape Verde): The eruption still continues although most of the time visible activity is very low and restricted to degassing. Minor lava effusion and sporadic flares of strombolian activity of mild to moderate size occur from time to time. Scientists from the Cabo Verde volcano observatory (OVCV) who climbed the volcano on 25 January observed small ash emissions, and published a detailed report about the most recent significant activity during 20-23 January, when explosions produced a short-lived…

Earthquakes Central US
January 2015TEXAS More earthquakes strike north Texas shaking going on. The U.S. Geological Survey has confirmed a Thursday afternoon temblor near Midlothian. The quake measured a 2.7 magnitude. There are reports of the movement also being felt in Mansfield. The earthquake, that happened at 2:12 in the afternoon, measured at a depth of five kilometers. There are no reports of damage. Minutes after confirming the afternoon Ellis County quake, the USGS released information about two additional tremors that happened earlier in Irving. The first quake was a 1.9 occurring at 4:08 a.m. The second Thursday tremor in Irving happened at 7:24 a.m. and also had a magnitude of 1.9.
The earthquake happened just one day after a cluster of a dozen small earthquakes rattled parts of North Texas — most centered in the city of Irving near the site of the old Texas Stadium. The site of…

Ring of Fire
January 2015HAWAIIThe Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports an active breakout of the Kilauea Volcano lava flow that began June 27 advanced about 120 yards toward Highway 130. An update Saturday from the Hawaii County Civil Defense said the original flow front and south margin breakout remain stalled. However, a breakout along the north side of the flow remains active and has advanced down slope below an area near the stalled front. The leading edge of the breakout was 0.4 miles from Highway 130 and west of the Pahoa police and fire stations. The Civil Defense agency says dry weather is likely to keep brush fires a concern. –Fox 8

Earthquake Mexico A
January 2015MEXICOAn earthquake was registered on the evening of Sunday January 10th, with an epicenter near Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, an area traditionally considered non seismic. According to Margarita Vidal Amaro of the National Seismological Service, an earthquake of magnitude 4.2 on the Richter scale occurred at 9:49 pm on Sunday January 10th 2015. The epicenter was located exactly 67 kilometers (41 miles) southwest of Playa del Carmen, in Quintana Roo. Several Twitter users posted comments regarding this unusual event in this part of the country. The government of Quintana Roo requested support from national institutions on Monday January 12th, to help determine the causes of this earthquake that occurred off the coast of Tulum. But the National Seismological Service in Mexico City officially confirmed the event since Sunday January 11th with no plausible explanation. Vidal Amaro explained that the quake occurred on the mainland…

Underwater volcano near Tonga erupts to turn the sea blood red and the sky grey with ash

leave a comment »

The Extinction Protocol

January 2015TONGA An underwater volcano off the coast of Tonga is spewing ash high into the air – causing air travel chaos and turning the surrounding ocean the color of blood. The Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai underwater volcano is around 40 miles (65km) north of Tonga’s capital Nuku’alofa. Its ash plume has reached heights of more than 14,765ft (4,500 meters) and the eruption has disturbed algae in the region, causing what’s known as a red tide. The volcano, which first erupted in 2009, had been rumbling in recent weeks before exploding violently in the past few days. Brad Scott, a volcanologist at New Zealand agency GNS Science, said volcanic activity had been recorded for several weeks in a stretch of ocean and small islands around 35 miles (60km) north of Nuku’alofa. He believes the volcano may have started beneath the ocean and grown until it reached the surface…
