There certainly hasn't been a lack of seismic activity so far in 2020.Just a few days ago,I wrote about the horrific earthquake swarm that Puerto Rico is currently experiencing.More than 1,000 earthquakes have rattled Puerto Rico so far,and as you will see below,it was just hit by another very large earthquake.But right now volcanic eruptions have taken center stage.In particular,a massive eruption in the Philippines is making headlines all over the world,but what most people don't realize is that several other volcanoes have also blown their tops in spectacular fashion within the past week.Suddenly,volcanoes all over the globe are shooting giant clouds of ash miles into the air,and this is greatly puzzling many of the experts.
Let's review what we have witnessed over the past 7 days.
Last Tuesday,one of the most important volcanoes in Alaska shot hot ash 25,000 feet into the air…
Shishaldin Volcano erupted at 5 a.m.Tuesday,the Alaska Volcano Observatory announced,and sent up an initial ash cloud to 19,000 feet.Clouds initially obscured the mountain,but satellite imagery confirmed the ash cloud,U.S.Geological Survey geophysicist Hans Schwaiger said.
阿拉斯加火山观测站宣布，希沙尔丁火山于周二凌晨5点喷发，最初的火山灰云高达19000英尺。云层最初掩盖了山体，但是卫星地图证实了火山灰云，美国地质调查局的地球物理学家 Hans Schwaiger 说。
Seismicity diminished for a few hours,but it then increased again.During the increase,the volcano spewed an ash cloud to 25,000 feet,the observatory announced.The later eruption increased the volume of ash.
There are 5280 feet in a mile,and so we are talking about an ash cloud nearly 5 miles high.
Then on Thursday,Mt.Popocatepetl in Mexico shot hot ash nearly 4 miles into the sky…
Mexico's Popocatépetl volcano burst to life on Thursday in a spectacular gush of lava and clouds of ash that hurled incandescent rock about 20,000 feet into the sky.
The dramatic explosion of the active stratovolcano,a little over 40 miles southeast of Mexico City,was captured on video by Mexico's National Center for Disaster Prevention,CENAPRED.
Those that follow my work on a regular basis already know that I am deeply concerned about Mt.Popocatepetl.It has the potential to create the worst natural disaster in the modern history of North America,because it is quite close to Mexico City.The following summary of the potential threat that Mt.Popocatepetl poses comes from one of my previous articles…
那些定期关注我工作的人已经知道，我对 Mt.Popocatepetl 深感担忧。它有可能造成北美现代史上最严重的自然灾害，因为它离墨西哥城很近。以下是我以前的一篇文章中对 Mt.Popocatepetl 潜在威胁的总结.....。
Approximately 26 million people live within 60 miles of Popocatepetl's crater,and so we are talking about the potential for death and destruction on a scale that is difficult to imagine.In ancient times,Mt.Popocatepetl buried entire Aztec cities in super-heated mud,but then it went to sleep for about 1,000 years.Unfortunately for us,it started waking up again in the 1990s,and now this is the most active that we have seen it ever since the volcano originally reawakened.
Let us hope that Mt.Popocatepetl settles down,because the death and destruction that a catastrophic eruption would cause would be off the charts.
让我们希望 Mt.Popocatepetl 能够平静下来，因为一次灾难性的火山爆发所造成的死亡和破坏将超出图表的范围。
Meanwhile,down in South America the Sabancaya volcano in Peru just shot a plume of volcanic ash approximately 24,000 feet into the air…
与此同时，在南美洲，秘鲁的 Sabancaya 火山刚刚喷发出一股大约24000英尺高的火山灰。
Explosive activity continues.Volcanic Ash Advisory Center(VAAC)Buenos Aires warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 24000 ft(7300 m)altitude or flight level 240 and is moving at 15 kts in S direction.
But hardly anyone is paying any attention to what just took place in Peru because of what just happened in the Philippines.
On Sunday,Taal volcano roared to life,and it is being reported that the eruption sent "steam,ash and pebbles up to 10 to 15 kilometers(6 to 9 miles)into the sky".
Can you imagine that?
According to USA Today,ash has already reached Manila,and"red-hot lava"has started gushing out of the volcano…
Red-hot lava gushed from of a Philippine volcano on Monday after a sudden eruption of ash and steam that forced villagers to flee and shut down Manila's international airport,offices and schools.
There were no immediate reports of casualties or major damage from Taal volcano's eruption south of the capital that began Sunday.But clouds of ash blew more than 100 kilometers(62 miles)north,reaching the bustling capital,Manila,and forcing the shutdown of the country's main airport with more than 240 international and domestic flights cancelled so far.
周日开始的 Taal 火山爆发造成了人员伤亡和重大损失，目前还没有报道。但火山灰向北吹了100多公里(62英里)，到达繁华的首都马尼拉，迫使该国主要机场关闭，目前有240多个国际和国内航班取消。
Unfortunately,authorities are warning that the worst may still be yet to come.
In fact,they are telling us that a "hazardous explosive eruption" could literally happen at any moment…
"The earthquakes were strong,and it felt like there was a monster coming out"as in the movies,Cookie Siscar,who had left the area and was relaying a report from her husband,Emer,a poultry farmer,told the Times.
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology increased its threat level for Taal Volcano to four out of five,saying that a"hazardous explosive eruption"could happen at any minute
菲律宾火山学及地震学研究所安理会将其对 Taal Volcano 的威胁等级提高到4/5，称"危险的爆炸式火山喷发"随时可能发生
Meanwhile,we continue to see unusual earthquake activity all over the globe.
After already experiencing more than 1,000 earthquakes since the beginning of 2020,Puerto Rico was hit by a magnitude 5.9 quake on Saturday…
A magnitude 5.9 quake shook Puerto Rico on Saturday,causing further damage along the island's southern coast,where previous recent quakes have toppled homes and schools.
The U.S.Geological Survey said the 8:54 a.m.(1254 GMT)quake hit 8 miles(13 kilometers)southeast of Guanica at a shallow depth of 3 miles(5 kilometers).
美国地质调查局海洋和大气管理局说，上午8:54(格林威治标准时间12:54)地震袭击了 Guanica 东南8英里(13公里)的浅层3英里(5公里)。
For quite a while,I have been warning that our planet is becoming increasingly unstable and that the shaking is only going to get worse.
I know that a lot of people didn't believe me at first,and that is okay.
After the events of the last few days,perhaps a few more people will start to understand what is going on.
There have always been earthquakes and volcanic eruptions,but for most of our lives we have been able to assume that our planet is generally stable.
Unfortunately,that is no longer a safe assumption.
We have entered a period of time when all of the old assumptions will no longer apply,and everything that can be shaken will be shaken.
