Increased danger of avalanches in the Pale of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky

Kamchatka avalanche center issued a storm warning on the increased risk of avalanches from the slopes of the hills in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, said GUMCHS on edge.

"Due to the heavy snowfall to 27 December inclusive in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky avalanche," — said in a statement.

Furthermore, the high risk of vanishing large masses of snow from the slopes of volcanic hills and mountain areas is stored in Ust-Bolsheretsky, Elizovo (especially Basin Paratunka), including through the Kronotsky reserve Milkovskiy, Bystrinsky, Ust-Kamchatsky (especially Klyuchevskaya volcano group ) areas, as well as volcanoes Viluchinsky, Kozelsky, Koryak and Avachinsky.

Population encouraged to increased security measures and, if

Yellowstone

According to the American volcanologists, the largest volcanic eruption in the world Yellowstone caldera, which is located in Yellowstone National Park, could begin at any moment. Volcano erupted about 600,000 years, and theireruptioncan destroy two-thirds of the U.S., why can even start a world catastrophe — Apocalypse, according to U.S. researchers. Super-volcano beneath Yellowstone National Park in the U.S. state of Wyoming began to grow at a record rate since 2004 and will explode with a force a thousand times more powerful than the catastrophic eruption of Mount St. Helens (St. Helens) in Washington May 18, 1980,

Americans are concerned about the possible eruption of a volcano in Nevada

In the state of Nevada in the last few weeks has seen a large number of earthquakes, which can cause an eruption of an ancient volcano in the region.

500 earthquakes near Hawthorne, Nev, Nevada, last week, the scientists observed

Looking at the seismic and volcanic monitor, you can see strong activity in Nevada.

Pictures from the movie "Volcano" are extreme. But, you can see explosions or lava flow. Kent Graham seismologist says the eruption is possible, as in the film.

Volcanic field began rumbling last week. Just eight miles from Hawthorne, Nev.

Kent said that there

Ash from the volcano in Kamchatka Tolbachik fell in the village Kozyrevsk

Ash falls took place in the village of Ust-Kamchatsky Kozyrevsk area the eruption Flat Tolbachik, reports the Kamchatka Branch of the Geophysical Service RAS.

Flat Tolbachik began erupting on 27 November. In the area of the southern slope has two fractured breakthrough emission of lava. The lava flow from the top break was more than six kilometers from the bottom — 18 kilometers. Periodically over Tolbachik ash column rises.

"Seismic in a powerful volcanic eruption recorded spasmodic tremor. At night there is the glow of the lava flow," — said in a statement.

According to scientists, Flat Tolbachik eruption occurs

Powerful volcano on Kamchatka began Nameless

Powerful eruption Nameless began Thursday in Kamchatka, told RIA Novosti the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

"Video surveillance of the volcano are difficult because of the cyclone raging over Kamchatka, but the seismic data, on Thursday from the crater of the volcano started strong emissions of gas and ash. Satellite image clearly seen numerous outbreaks of lightning-in volcano" — said the source.

He added that the seismic station installed in the area of the volcano, a giant, record multiple local earthquakes and volcanic tremor. The surrounding villages of the eruption was ash falls. A layer of ash has fallen up

Deep tremors shake the largest dormant volcano in Iceland

Iceland — A deep earthquake occurred in the Icelandic volcano Hofsyekudl.

The volcano has never erupted in the whole of recorded history. Geologists believe that the last time he was active in the Holocene (Holocene Epoch ended about 11,000 years ago — approx. Translator :). Ice dome volcano is very deep. Its lowest point is at a depth of 650 m The deepest point of the glacier located in the main caldera. If Chaiten volcano in Chile, but something has taught scientists, it is clear that dormant volcanoes need a little time to go from dormant to active eruption. That's

In the area of Fiji earthquake magnitude 5.2

Magnitude 5.2 earthquake occurred on Monday night in the archipelago of Fiji. According to the Australian Seismological Service, its epicenter was in the Pacific Ocean, 274 km south of the island Ndoi and center lies at a depth of 459 km. Aftershocks were felt in a radius of 206 km. No injuries or damage were reported, according to ITAR-TASS. At 332 Fiji islands, of which only 110 are inhabited, earthquakes and eruptions of underwater volcanoes occur frequently. Archipelago in the Pacific Ocean is part of the so-called Ring of Fire, which is concentrated three-quarters of the active volcanoes in the

Shiveluch in Kamchatka ejects ash to a height of up to 7.5 km

The northernmost active volcano of Kamchatka — Shiveluch — ejects ash to a height of 7.5 kilometers, according to RIA Novosti, the representative of the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

Increased activity of Shiveluch volcano, whose height is about 3.3 thousand meters above sea level, was launched in May 2009. Its dome is a normal eruption fissure cut through a depth of about 30 meters.

"Video surveillance of the volcano are difficult because of the weather, but the seismic station within 36 minutes of recorded surface seismic event, which was accompanied by powerful ash-gas explosions and gathering glowing avalanche" —
