    Narita: second quake that I felt today.  Both felt like a jerking rolling motion.  This one much stronger than the first.  Actually got up and went to the door of the hotel room and was prepared to leave the room for safety.  Been through many quakes but this reminded me of the build up to the march quake near Fukushima.

Recent Volcanic Activity

  • Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report (New Activity/Unrest)
    • Sicily / Etna Recent Volcanic Activity: Sezione di Catania - Osservatorio Etneo reported that on the night of 4 January the New SE Crater (New SEC) of Etna entered another paroxysmal eruption episode after about 50 days of quiescence. Several hours of Strombolian activity were observed on the SE and NE slopes starting at 2230 on 4 January. This activity continued into the early morning of 5 January when (around 0200) a small lava flow spread out into several branches at the SE base of the cone. Strombolian activity increased around 0400, generating lava fountains, from several vents within the crater that rose 100-150 m above the crater
    • Colombia / Galeras Recent Volcanic Activity: INGEOMINAS reported that low-level activity continued at Galeras during 4-10 January, with steam rising from the main crater and two craters to the N and SW (Paisita and Chavas, respectively). The Alert Level remained at III (Yellow; "changes in the behavior of volcanic activity")
    • Lomblen Islands (Indonesia) / Lewo Tolo: According to news articles, 500 people have evacuated their homes on 6 January because of increased activity at Lewotolo. Black smoke rose from the crater and rumbling sounds were reported. On 2 January CVGHM raised the Alert Level from 2 to 3 (on a scale of 1-4)
    • Northern Chile / Lascar: OVDAS-SERNAGEOMIN reported increased seismicity at Láscar on 5 January and raised the Alert Level from Green to Yellow. On 8 January ONEMI authorities warned residents about the new Alert Level status and restricted residents from going within a 20-km radius of the volcano
    • Democratic Republic Of Congo / Nyamuragira: Satellite imagery acquired on 3 January from the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA's EO-1 satellite showed an active lava flow to the NE of the central vent over the fissure located 11-12 km ENE of Nyamuragira's main crater. A sulfur dioxide-rich plume was also detected
    • Ecuador / Reven Tador: IG reported that staff conducting fieldwork at Reventador during 6-7 January observed constant emissions of gas-and-steam rising about 300 m above the crater and drifting WNW. The emissions originated from a growing lava dome that was a few tens of meters above the crater rim and almost filled the base
    • Ecuador/Sangay: Based on information from Guayaquil MWO and a pilot report, a possible ash plume from Sangay was reported on 8 January. Ash was not detected in partly-cloudy satellite imagery
    • Ecuador / Tungurahua Recent Volcanic Activity: IG reported a decrease in activity from Tungurahua during 4-10 January. On 4 January steam plumes rose as high as 500 m above the crater and drifted W. Additional steam plumes observed on 8 January also drifted W
    • Yemen / Zubair Group: A satellite image acquired on 7 January showed the newly-formed island in the northern part of the Zubair Group. The island had grown to about 530 x 710 m, and a gas-and-steam plume containing ash rose from a distinct cone

Recent Cyclones

  • Tropical Storm "HEIDI-12" with current wind speed 23 m/s is active in Australia. GREEN ALERT for Australia.
    Tropical Cyclone Heidi
    crossed the coast near the mining town of Port Hedland today morning. NO DAMAGE REPORTED. However, 10 inches of rain and a dangerous storm tide predicted for coastal areas
