Volcano and earthquake Updates – New Fogo video, Colima, Aso, Sinabung

Last update: November 26, 2014 at 12:34 pm by By

After Rodger Wilson was obliged to discontinue his daily participation at this site, we have decided to start up an El Hierro type article. The newest additions will always be on top and if the article gets too long, we will cut off a part of it and archive it. This url will always be the one to follow and if you leave our page open in your browser, the page will refresh every 15 minutes automatically.
Please be a little patient with this new format.
This report is compiled out of many information sources.

I guess a lot of people will be happy that we just have decreased the length of this page. The archives part can be found here

Sinabung volcano, Sumatra, Indonesia yesterday

Aso volcano, Japan and tourism

Colima, Mexico

Fogo, Cabo Verde update November 26, 00:37 UTC
Another great video from the action on the third day. The AA lava flow is thickening further. An unusual view in Fogo is that the people who had to evacuate their houses are now sitting in the open air on a slope next to the new lava field.


Fogo, Cabo Verde update November 25, 09:49 UTC
New Video shows that 3 vents are active and are emitting lava and ash at full strength. Some lava bombs are really huge. Especially the sound of the emitted ash is impressive.

Zhupanovski volcano, Russia satellite images are showing an ash explosion

Bárðarbunga scientific advisory board update November 25, 09:54 UTC
The volcanic eruption in Holuhraun continues to be strong. The lava flow and the gas emission in the volcanic plume is more fluctuating than it has been. There is a double pulse cycle, or fluctuation, one takes hours and the other takes between 10 and 20 seconds.
* Seismic activity in Bardarbunga continues to be strong. The biggest earthquakes that was detected since noon on Friday, were of magnitude M5,1 on Sunday, 23. November at 09:22 and this morning, 24. November, at 09:03 of magnitude M5,4. In total 36 earthquakes bigger then M4,0 were detected over the period and 56 earthquakes between M3,0-3,9. In total about 250 earthquakes were detected in Bardarbunga since noon on Friday.
* First analysis from a new seismograph, which was installed on Bardarbunga on 11. November, shows that the earthquakes in the Bardarbunga caldera originate in the uppermost three kilometres of the earth’s crust. This indicates that the magma is closer to the earth’s surface than was estimated before.
* On Saturday, 22 November, at 00:51 an earthquake of magnitude M1,7 was detected in the dyke. In total about 80 earthquakes were detected in the dyke and around the eruption site in Holuhraun since Friday.
* The subsidence of the Bardarbunga caldera and tectonics continues with similar rate as last few weeks. Tectonics movements show depression towards Bardarbunga.


Fogo, Cabo Verde update November 24, 16:43 UTC
And another great video of this powerful Strombolian eruption. The lava type is AA lava

Fogo, Cabo Verde update November 24; 14:31 UTC
The best eruption video so far

Shishaldin volcano, Alaska
Seismic activity has increased over the past two hours and more sharply over the past 30 minutes, suggesting that the eruption at Shishaldin has intensified. Ash emissions beyond the immediate summit crater are more likely while seismic activity is increased. Satellite images from earlier tonight show elevated surface temperatures near the volcano’s summit.

Mammoth lakes Long valley caldera, California update November 24, 13:15 UTC
There we go again, a new swarm seems to have started, mostly micro quakes. No danger at the current hypocenter depths. The micro quakes indicate however lava on the move

Fogo, Cabo Verde update November 24; 10:25 UTC
The Fogo eruption on Cabo Verde islands resulted in the evacuation of hundreds of residents and the closure of a local airport.

Fogo volcano, Cabo Verde enters in eruption Update November 23, 15:10 UTC
The volcano’s last eruption was in 1995. The eruption started this morning at 10:00 local time (11:00 UTC).
The volcanologists had enough precursors to send an evacuation call to the people living near the volcano. Signs of increased activity were recvorded since many weeks and even months.
The eruptive cloud was detected by the VAAC from Toulouse. A red aviation alert has been issued for the region around the volcano. There is almost NO ash in the air at this moment (see VAAC image below)
As there are NO live links with the instruments on Fogo, we can only guess on what is happening. Fogo has normally Strombolian eruptions. Strombolian eruptions are powerful lava fountains when the eruption starts but are mostly limited in time, lava flows are a normal part of it.
The best website to follow this eruption is the one from Observatório Vulcanológico de Cabo Verde (OVCV)

    Hopefully White Island actually erupts this time!
    NZ volcanoes have been really pathetic lately. lots of minor activity that never ends up going anywhere.

    It is false. Video sakurajima published in February on YouTube!!!

    Click below is entitled to the video on “YOUTUBE”.

    Video published in February one YouTube!!!

    • Armand Vervaeck says:

      We know, we did not mention that it was from today but we will clarify

    • Why say that there is activity if there is not?? I look at the Japanese official site and there is nothing! The 09 and 10 yes but not 11, I’m sorry …

    • Armand Vervaeck says:

      Once again – The daily activity overview is another article. We have now added (OLDER) Richard Roscoe video’s. Sorry for the confusion.

    • OK thank you if you want one more information, I look at 200 real time webcam and I publish on my page Facebook at most within the hour, I do not see everything and I do not know everything especially when I sleep but it will bring you maybe one more from time to time.


  3. goldminor says:

    Those photos of Sakurajima are stunningly beautiful.

    • Armand Vervaeck says:

      We love them too, the nature can be extremely beautiful but you do not want to be in that cloud

  4. goldminor says:

    It’s really great to see the page back up. Congratulations.

  5. Stephen Desrosiers says:

    I love this page. It’s good to have a daily dose of my volcano fix! Keep up the good work!
