[quote:Luisport:MV8xNzU0NjcwXzMzNTEwMTkwX0ZFNzYyOEM=] Indonesia In another case of media “spewing” over a volcano, Soputan in Indonesia had a moderate eruption today and Gamalama erupted over the weekend, producing a 1.5 km / 5,000 foot ash plume. Many of the nearby towns were coated with a thin layer of ash from Gamalama – as always, a respiratory hazard. However, no evacuations were ordered because, as State volcanology official Kristianto remarked, the nearest villages are 6 km from the volcano (which is close enough to give me some pause). It seems like every time there is an eruption in Indonesia that makes the international news, the Jakarta Post has to follow it up with an article on how volcanic activity is higher now than at other times. Any frequent reader of the Smithsonian/USGS GVP Weekly Volcanic Activity report would know that Indonesia is almost always busy with volcanic activity, so why they find it necessary to make it seem like something different is afoot is beyond me. UPDATE: I confused the new eruption at Soputan this week with the eruption of Gamalama over the weekend. It should all be fixed now. And if you haven’t checked out the excellent video of the September 3 activity at Anak Krakatau posted by Eruptions reader Oystein Lund Andersen, you really should. Guatemala Meanwhile, in Central America, activity has subsided considerably at Fuego, enough so that many residents evacuated last week have returned home, according to CONRED (the Guatemalan disaster agency). The volcano is still under a yellow alert status as new explosion may occur at Fuego, but lava flows are still apparent on the volcano (which is becoming a tourist draw due to this new, less dangerous, activity). Washington Nothing new to report from Washington’s Rainier, however, there were two articles that could be of interest. The first is a guest post I wrote for a Seattle Mariners’ blog, Lookout Landing, where I speculate what might happen if Rainier erupted during baseball season. Second, there is an article in the Seattle Times about a new array of seismic instruments that have been deployed on the Cascade volcano, ready to catch any rumblings that might occur. http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2012/09/tuesday-tidbits-volcano-news-for-gamalama-fuego-and-rainier/ [/quote]
