Re: WHAT IS HAPPENING AT WHITE ISLAND VOLCANO??? New Zealand/Kermadec & South Pacific QUAKE/VOLCANO WATCH
yes, i take a lot of notice of my dogs behaviour in relation to quakes and local volcanic activity

there have been many quakes lately in the area between tauranga and kermadec, it has had me concerned thats for sure

also what looks like ongoing volcanic activity in the kermadec area
 Quoting: Tauranga


I know how you feel, I'm worried about quakes in my region as well !

We've had tons of minor quakes the last few weeks and scientists say we're long overdue for a big one (M7+)...so I am pretty anxious !

With our poorly constructed buildings a M7+ quake could be disastrous for our capital city !

The interface is just where the two plates come against one another, which runs up the 'spine' of the South island and then out to the east above Christchurch and skirts the east side of the North island, on up through the Kermadecs and on to Tonga.

The depth of the interface might be 600 or more Kilometers, with many intrusions and overlays, twists and skews. The reverse subduction near Kaikoura complicates it. You'll notice where the interface crosses out to the east side of the South Island at Kaikoura that the deeper sea bed there to the north and east forms a sharpish wedge shape as it comes up against the Chatham Rise to the south and west to Chrischurch.

The Pacific plate is growing/moving toward the southwest as well, pushing the point of this wedge in tighter toward Chrischurch, which I believe was responsible for forming the Akaroa-Lyttleton volcanic complex by Christchurch originally. I believe the large quakes in Christchurch were in response to tightening pressure in this wedge-point. Remember there was a fair bit of activity around Kaikoura at the time as well, some of which were deeper than the Christchurch ones but it seems to have gone quiet there lately.

The present pattern of quakes up and down and along the interface, the length of NZ (and beyond) seems to indicate broad movement underway, with the pressure points stressing increasingly. This wedge I talk about is also tending to force the east part of the North Island further to the east, sort of spinning it around clockwise as the Oz plate pushes from the west. The centre of this splitting apart is the whole volcanic region going up through Taupo in line with the Kermadec rise. It goes right by Whakatane and through White Is. It's the reason for the Y shape around the Bay of Plenty.

I'll check those drums, but I don't 'read' them too well.

Extreme Weather in New Zealand on Wednesday, 09 January, 2013 at 21:20 (09:20 PM) UTC.

Description
A "mini-tornado" has hit Kaikoura, cutting power to a number of homes, as gales and heavy rain continue to lash the country. Police confirmed they were at the scene, on Beach Rd, after the "mini tornado" hit earlier this morning. No one was believed to have been injured but a house was understood to have lost its roof, police south communications shift manager Hemi Waratini said. Power was also out in many areas. Mainpower confirmed a number of power lines were down and linesmen were working to restore electricity to houses. Engineering network manager Peter Hurford said Beach Rd was the worst affected area. Meanwhile, wind continued to howl in Wellington and eastern areas this morning, with gusts in excess of 130kmh hammering the capital, while heavy rain was moving away from Southland toward the headwaters of Otago and the Canterbury lakes. Fire service shift manager Murray Dunbar said between 7.30am and 8am firefighters were called to secure roofs that were lifting in the Wellington suburbs of Karori and Kilbirnie.

A volcano in Colombia is spewing more than a pound of gold each day into the atmosphere, a scientist said yesterday. He said the volcano was also depositing 45 pounds of gold a year into the rocks lining its crater.

Volcano Eruption in Papua New Guinea on Saturday, 12 January, 2013 at 16:54 (04:54 PM) UTC.

Description
An large eruption seems to have occurred this morning around 05:30 GMT from Manam volcano north of New Guinea. VAAC Darwin reported an ash plume rising to 45,000 ft (approx. 14 km) altitude. A hot spot is visible on MODIS satellite data. For the moment, no precise other information about the nature of the eruption is available, as the island is remote and most of its population had been relocated after the last major activity in 2004.

Extreme Weather in Australia on Tuesday, 15 January, 2013 at 08:07 (08:07 AM) UTC.

Description
A severe storm has ripped through a small town in western Queensland, seriously damaging 15 homes and a school. The wild weather bore down on the town of Jundah, south of Longreach, about 2pm (AEST). Authorities say the storm battered roofs, windows and doors, significantly damaging 15 homes and a school and knocking over trees. There were no reports of injuries, according to the Department of Community Safety. State Emergency Service volunteers are helping with the clean-up. The Bureau of Meteorology forecast severe thunderstorms with damaging wind gusts in the western Queensland area for most of the afternoon. A severe thunderstorm warning remains in place for central western Queensland and the Maranoa and Warrego regions, with the possibility that storms will move further north in the evening.
Tornado in Australia on Tuesday, 15 January, 2013 at 04:14 (04:14 AM) UTC.

Description
A town in central Queensland was hit by a tornado Monday night, just 11 months after a flood swept through the area. Blackall retailer Ian Kinsey said a tornado hit the town about 9pm, ripping part of his clothing store's roof clean off. "The tornado wasn't a massive one…but it would have been a couple of more minutes before it ripped the roof off completely." The roller door of the store was also blown in and trees around the town were knocked down. Mr Kinsey said even a metal sign in the town was "twisted” by the storm. The damage comes after his business was swamped by more than six feet of water in February 2012. "We'd only just got over the floods and replaced the flooring…it's the exact same building that's been hit,” Mr Kinsey said. Luckily, Mr Kinsey's other businesses in town were spared from nature's wrath. Bureau of Meteorology Forecast Matthew Bass confirmed there were damaging winds in the area Monday night, with 120km/h winds the highest recorded. He said severe storms hit towns from the north-west of the state right across to the Darling Downs from yesterday afternoon. Outside Mount Isa, a wind recording of 109km/h was clocked by the bureau. The Bureau expects to issue weather warnings for the central parts of Queensland on Tuesday afternoon, with more gusty thunderstorms and heavy rainfall likely in Blackall and neighbouring towns. "We've got cooler air moving and what's significant is a weak low starting to form over the centre of the state and a lot of moist tropical air starting to feed in and that's going to start triggering more thunderstorms through central parts of the state,” Mr Bass said.
Flash Flood in New Zealand on Tuesday, 15 January, 2013 at 04:17 (04:17 AM) UTC.

Description
Heavy rain across the middle of the country has caused widespread flooding, almost sweeping away four tourists camping in Nelson this morning. MetService has issued a heavy rain warning for Mt Taranaki, Nelson, Marlborough, the Kaikoura Coast and North Canterbury as a low moves southeast across the country. The rain has eased for Mt Taranaki, Nelson, Marlborough, however heavy falls are forecast this afternoon for the Kaikoura Coast and north Canterbury where 100 to 140mm may accumulate before easing this evening. The heavy rain almost washed away four tourists camping alongside the Waimea River overnight. Police said the overseas tourists, in their late teens and early 20s, had driven on to the river bed and parked two campervans under the Appleby Bridge for the night. After heavy rain overnight one of the campers awoke about 9.30am to the sound of water entering the van. He then woke the other campers and they tried to push the front van out of the river. Senior Constable Dave Colville of Nelson Police said the two vans had been tied together to create a washing line, preventing the group from pushing the first van out.

The tourists started emptying their possessions out of the vans. However when some items were washed away one of the group swam after them. He was washed away in the current and ended up making it to the bank on the opposite side of the river, and was later found downstream. Mr Colville said the vans were last seen floating down the river and are yet to be located. The group had been taken to a campground to dry their gear out, Mr Colville said. He said they were lucky to have escaped unharmed and advised other campers that parking on a river bed in torrential rain was not a safe option. The Nelson City Council says while rain is expected to ease across the region this afternoon, they will be on alert until river levels return to normal. Heavy rain hitting the area has caused moderate surface flooding in the city, with the Maitai Valley Road at Sharlands Creek. But Council spokesman Shane Davies said the worst of it should now be over.

Re: WHAT IS HAPPENING AT WHITE ISLAND VOLCANO??? New Zealand/Kermadec & South Pacific QUAKE/VOLCANO WATCH
This is gonna sound stupid and like i believe in stuff ,but last nite i had a dream about a volcano that had gold coming out ,it was quite weird there was like grains of gold stopping the really big stuff coming out but it was on a flow type of thing and when the grains were removed there was a lot of gold just flowing ,i told my wife this when i woke up and said i must be dreaming of a lottery win or some crap like that coz it was so weird ,but looked it up on the internet about 5 mins ago and found this. A volcano in Colombia is spewing more than a pound of gold each day into the atmosphere, a scientist said yesterday. He said the volcano was also depositing 45 pounds of gold a year into the rocks lining its crater.
Galeras volcano anyone know anything about it coz the dream was so vivid and the pyroclastic flow was really bad .just info on it thats all i need not piss taking or people thinking im one of those psycics .
