Some offer a picnic nearby to watch the event.

Hawaii: Volcanic activity continues in one of the hot spots

May 6, 2011 — Hawaii — Crater continued slow growth, as lava flows from the new holes on the east side. Floor height climbed to 20 m (66 ft) in the last two weeks. Lava erupting continuously for the last week. No lava that erupts out of the crater. A small, stable lava lake is also present deep within. Volcanic gas emissions remain elevated, resulting in relatively high concentrations of sulfur deoksida. One earthquake beneath the Hawaiian Islands, as reported last week to be felt. Earthquake of magnitude 2.3 occurred at 6:51 pm on Monday, May 2, 2011,

On Earth, started strong magnetic storm

Magnetic storm began on Earth on Wednesday night — the index of geomagnetic disturbances Kp reached a value of 6, one more than the minimum value, which is considered a storm, according to the space weather forecast center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the USA (NOAA).

Level of magnetic disturbance began to grow around 15.00 to 18.00 MSK and reached the "red zone." Currently, the index Kp, characterizing the geomagnetic activity has reached a value of 6. This scale has 10 levels, from 0 to 3 are the quiet magnetosphere, level 4 — perturbed, and the

Russian seismologists predicted Japan quake to 8.5

Japan may soon come a new earthquake of magnitude 7.5-8.5. An earthquake can also cause tsunami. These conclusions were Sakhalin seismologists, "Interfax". According to Head of Laboratory Sciences Seismology Institution "Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics" (IMGG), Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Ivan Tikhonov, the epicenter of the new quake, most likely, will be located at the deep trough about 200 km east of the epicenter of the earthquake of 11 March 2011.

"There is a certain area, which now stands where there was a strong earthquake. This area is a kind of "live" somewhat independently from the rest

Whether Japan will cope without nuclear power?

So, Japan stopped the last of 54 nuclear reactors. Whether they will run again, and when, is not known. Surely you can say for the time being only one thing for some time, the country is almost entirely dependent on imported fossil fuels.

Japan is the world's third largest nuclear power, after the United States and France. Before the devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011, this sector drew up almost 30% of the country's electricity. Hydroelectricity and other renewable sources accounted for less than 10%. The rest gave fossil fuels, most of which are purchased abroad.

Japan's strong dependence
