Mount Etna's sixteenth eruption in five weeks

etna
Located on the east coast of Sicily, Mount Etna is the highest and most active volcano in Europe. Its last major eruption was back in July 2001, but it sees fairly regular Strombolian activity most years.

Recently, the volcano has been more active than average, with 16 eruptions over the past five weeks.

The latest explosion, which occurred overnight between 23 and 24 March, lasted twice as long as usual and happened on the back of a brief four-day hiatus.

Adapt 2030 Ice Age Report: Polar Spring is from volcanic eruptions globally

Media suddenly picks up on the term Polar Spring to explain the abnormal cold and snowfall events happening in March and predicted to last through April. Much of the cooling is from multiple volcanic eruptions above 40,000 ft across the globe. Other strangeness is that Monarch Butterflies are down 26% in migration numbers and Arctic Walrus spotted off Ireland and Wales. Look for delayed planting across the N. Hemisphere.


Comment: Ash from volcanic eruptions, together with particulates from meteor 'smoke' and wildfire smoke, all jointly contribute to the increased dust-load in the atmosphere. This changes its electric charge rebalancing mechanisms, producing more intense storms and precipitation in the form of record rainfall, hail, lightning strikes, planetary cooling, atmospheric 'anomalies' etc.

Lava has spilled down two sides of the volcano and its glow can be seen from the outskirts of Reykjavík, about 20 miles away.

A long-dormant volcano in southwestern Iceland has come back to life, following thousands of small earthquakes in recent weeks.

The Fagradals Mountain volcano is on the Reykjanes Peninsula, where none of the volcanoes had erupted for almost 800 years.

A fissure of between 500m and 750m opened at the site on Friday evening, with lava fountains of up to 100m high.

Taal Volcano stays on alert level two on Monday after the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology recorded 252 volcanic earthquakes in the last 24 hours.
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) on Monday maintained alert level 2 over Taal Volcano after it generated 252 volcanic earthquakes in the last 24 hours.

Under alert level 2, the volcano is seen to be under "increased unrest" as activities within the crater "indicate increased magmatic activity at shallow depths beneath the edifice," Phivolcs said in its 8 a.m. advisory.

"Sudden steam-driven or phreatic explosions, volcanic earthquakes, minor ashfall, and lethal accumulations or expulsions of volcanic gas can occur and threaten areas within the Taal Volcano Island," it said.

Last month, Phivolcs warned of Taal's possible eruption over a year since it last spewed ash and hot rocks, covering parts of Batangas, Cavite, and Laguna with mud and grime.
