The British government has updated the list of national threats

England added, volcanoes, solar storms, floods, flu and terrorism to the list of threats to national security. The priority risks are pandemic, floods, terrorist attacks and a new addition — the eruption of volcanoes in places like Iceland. All of these changes can be found in the National Register of risks to civil emergencies (National Risk Register for Civil Emergencies).

Difficult weather conditions represent a threat to the communications, electronics, electrical networks. Solar storms — the eruption of magnetic energy and charged particles — is part of a normal 11-year solar cycle, which is expected to peak in the next

Transcarpathian geyser

Transcarpathian geyser — the only Ukrainian. About Vuchkovoe geyser in the village in the Carpathian region there is no mention in the internet search engine Google.

Anyway, the word "geyser" in Ukraine found almost exclusively in the kit with a variety of "of" or "PE". On the one hand, it is not surprising — the natural fountains are usually characteristic of areas with active volcanoes, which in Ukraine, thankfully, is nowhere.

However, at least one geyser, no matter how seemingly strange country just is. Moreover, it is located in the Carpathians — the village in Vuchkovoe Mizhgirya area.

Underground lightning earthquakes and volcanoes

We are all familiar lightning in the atmosphere, but what we know about the "underground" lightning?

Electrical phenomenon that we call lightning, we are not very well understood. The most well known the following explanation of this phenomenon: the circulation of steam up and down through the clouds in the convection. Heated and vaporized water sun rises into the air, where it is converted into the clouds. Water vapor rises higher and higher, in the end they are cooled enough for further condensation. Under the influence of gravity, these masses are addicted to the surface, where the cycle is repeated.

Kamchatka volcano threw ashes. Video

In Kamchatka Karymskii threw a column of ash to a height of more than 4 thousand meters. The region has been declared a code orange hazard to aviation. This means that the airspace for closed near the volcano.

Ash particles can get into aircraft engines and cause a disaster. Now the slopes Karymsky drain flows of molten lava. However, according to geophysicists, threats to human settlements there. The volcano is located 120 kilometers north of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Karymsky — one of the most active volcanoes on the peninsula.
