Ring of Fire Update June


JAPAN June 6th- Another earthquake, with a 6.4 magnitude and a depth of 13.4 kilometres, has hit off the Izu Islands in Japan this morning following Saturday’s 7.8 earthquake, according to United States Geological Survey (USGS). There was no immediate tsunami warning following the quake. Saturday’s earthquake which struck off the Japanese coast, geologists said, shook buildings in Tokyo and set off car alarms – tremors were also felt in Nepal and India. Despite the huge power of the quake, there was no risk of a tsunami as the earthquake was located too deep inside the earth.

TONGA June 13th A 6.3-magnitude quake has struck off the Pacific nation of Tonga, the US Geological Survey says, but there is no tsunami warning. The tremor hit at 11.07pm local time (2107 AEST) 89 kilometres east-northeast of Hihifo, Tonga, and 235 kilometres southeast of the Samoan capital Apia, USGS said. The Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said no tsunami warnings were in effect. Geoscience Australia measured the quake at 6.2 with a depth of 30 kilometres. Tonga sits on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, a region of frequent seismic activity due to collisions between continental plates. – AFP – See more at: http://www.skynews.com.au/content/skynews/news/top-stories/2015/06/12/6-3-magnitude-earthquake-hits-off-tonga.html

Indonesia raises alert as Mt Raung volcano erupts by The Extinction Protocol

June 2015 – INDONESIA – Indonesian authorities on Monday (Jun 29) raised the alert level after Mount Raung in East Java erupted, causing ash to land in surrounding villages. The eruption at Mount Raung on Sunday evening was heard 20 kilometers away, and ash fall was seen in villages about 10 kilometers away from the summit. Aircraft pilots also reported seeing large amounts of ash at a height of 3,500 meters. Authorities cordoned off a two-kilometre radius around the volcano, and raised the alert level to “Siaga”, the second highest level. The Head of Prevention and Disaster Preparedness at the local Natural Disaster Mitigation Agency added the eruption could be seen from a lookout post in Banyuwangi, East Java. Volcanologists have recorded an increase in volcanic activity and tremors on the 3,332-metre high Mount Raung since Jun 24. Apart from Mount Raung, other volcanoes for which Indonesian authorities have raised the second highest alert level are Mount Karangetang, as well as Mount Soputan and Mount Lokon in Sulawesi. –Channel News Asia

More earthquakes July 4th ChinaA shallow 6.4-magnitude earthquake that struck China’s far western region of Xinjiang has killed at least six people, Chinese officials say.

The epicentre was in Pishan county, 164 kilometres northwest of the city of Hotan and 131 kilometres southeast of Shache, known as Yarkand in Uighur, the language of the local mainly Muslim minority.

It was 20 kilometres deep, according to the US Geological Survey, which initially gave the magnitude as 6.1. A series of aftershocks followed with the strongest measuring 4.8, it said on Friday.

The area is on the edge of the Taklamakan desert, but the civil affairs ministry said six people had died.

The state news agency Xinhua said 48 people had been injured and cited officials saying an airport in Hotan had been closed.

Li Hua, a worker at a state-owned farm in Pishan, which has a population of 258,000, mainly Uighurs, told Xinhua that he felt the quake strongly, with his fourth-floor apartment shaking for about a minute.

‘I’m feeling dizzy,’ it quoted Li as saying.

State broadcaster China Central Television showed footage of items falling off shelves in a local supermarket when the quake struck, and cracked walls at a fire station.

The government is sending 1000 tents and disaster relief materials to the quake zone, the civil affairs ministry said.

The China Earthquake Network Centre gave the magnitude as 6.5.

volcano_cinder_fire_coneWell, I’d seen a couple other postings in the past month that had mentioned “6 of 7 volcanoes going off”, but that was from 2013, I believe. But this one acutally DOES appear to be from NOW. So here it is.


40 Volcanoes Are Erupting Right Now, And 34 Of Them Are Along The Ring Of Fire

You may not have noticed, but our planet is becoming increasingly unstable.  According to Volcano Discovery, 40 volcanoes around the globe are erupting right now, and only 6 of them are not along the Ring of Fire.  If that sounds like a very high number to you, that is because it is a very high number.

As I have written about previously, there were a total of 3,542 volcanic eruptions during the entire 20th century.  When you divide that number by 100, that gives you an average of about 35…
