Volcano ERUPTION WARNING: Tens of volcano earthquakes RUMBLING around the world
A LARGE number of earthquakes have been felt beneath volcanoes across the world, sparking fears of major eruptions, so are any volcanoes erupting and could there be a violent explosion?
In Hawaii a total of 18 earthquakes have been measured under Kilauea volcano during the last 18 hours.
The largest earthquakes measured on the Big Island was a magnitude 2.2 earthquake measured on Wednesday, 6km southwest of the volcano.
Kilauea is showing increased signs of activity, as the summit lava lake remains at a high level and continues to rise.
Hawaiian Volcano Observatory spokeswoman Janet Babb said: “Overall, it’s been on the high side. With this latest inflation, it’s just pushing up even higher.”
The volcano is located in the Mexican state of Baja California ad the quake measured might be volcanic in original at a depth of 12km.
A volcano tectonic earthquake is an earthquake induced by the movement – either injection or withdrawal – of magma. These earthquakes do not indicate the volcano will be erupting but can occur at anytime.
The volcanic field has not erupted for several millennia, sporadic volcanic-type earthquakes do occur and the numerous hot springs and volcanic gas seeps at in the area point to its potential to erupt again.
Across the world, in Greece, a magnitude 2.7 earthquake was felt beneath the Nisyros volcano which may have been volcanic in its origin.
The Greek Island is in the Aegean and is the youngest volcano along a rift in the Southern Aegean and has experienced at least three major eruptions in the past 45,000 years.
One of these, around 16,000 years ago, was particularly destructive, blanketing a wide area with volcanic ash.
The Sakurajima volcano in Japan has recently been showing high levels of activity.
At the beginning of April, there were between two to four vulcanian explosions per day, increasing the total number for recorded explosions this year to 32 so far.
Volcano ERUPTION WARNING: Could the earthquakes trigger a volcanic eruption?
As the earthquakes measured at these volcanoes have been magnitude 2 or less, it is not expected to lead to volcanic eruptions. (Click to Source)
