Philippines volcano eruption likely soon
(CNN) -- Philippine authorities on Sunday raised the alert status of the country's most active volcano to level 4 and established an extended danger zone around it, saying an eruption is imminent.

The status change at the Mayon volcano "means that a hazardous explosive eruption is possible within days," according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

Earlier Sunday, the institute said the central Philippine volcano continues "to exhibit a high level of activity," adding that 222 volcanic quakes and tremors have been recorded in recent days. One was "an explosion-type earthquake" that launched a cloud of ash about 1,640 feet (500 meters) into the air, according to an institute statement.

The institute recommended extending already-established danger zones of nearly five miles (8 kilometers) south of the summit and 4.3 miles (7 kilometers) north of the summit.


In addition, "areas just outside of this extended danger zone should prepare for evacuation in the event explosive eruptions intensify," the institute said.
More than 30,000 people fled their homes last week ahead of an expected eruption, and authorities were attempting to evacuate about 50,000 people living around the 8,077-foot volcano.

People in surrounding Albay province have flocked to town centers to catch a glimpse of glowing lava cascading down the slopes of Mayon since the mountain began oozing fiery lava and belching clouds of ash last week.
The volcano, about 310 (500 kilometers) south of the Philippine capital of Manila, has erupted 49 times since its first documented eruption in 1616.
The Philippines is situated in the so-called Ring of Fire, an arc of fault lines circling the Pacific Basin that is prone to frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

In 1814, Mayon had its most violent eruption, killing more than 1,200 people. Its last major eruption was in 1993. Since then, it has remained restless, emitting ash and spewing lava.

"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Considering the amount of CO2 a volcano erupts, I wonder why they didn't propose taxing the Philippines in Hopenhagen for their inability to regulate volcanic eruptions?

More Sunspots / Solar Update

Comment on Message Board

Sunspot 1036 and 1037 numbered - Two new sunspots were numbered on Saturday. Together with Sunspot 1035, they combined to make the sunspot number 43. This is a new Cycle 24 record.

Sunspot 1036 which is in the southern hemisphere continues to grow and consists of atleast 4 spots. Sunspot 1037 did produce two small spots, however they have already faded.

Sunspot 1035 remains a fairly large sunspot group, but it is losing size as it approaches the western limb. There is another magnetic region to the east of this group that is trying to form a sunspot as well.

Sunspot 1036 (Sunday)

not anywhere near as bad, but it's the drip drip effect of all the recent eruptions that is driving us towards an ice age. any big eruption now could be catastrophic for all of us imho.

''Over the previous 24 hours the bulletin reports an increase in Mayon’s activity, with 248 earthquakes and tremors recorded by the seismic network, 50 of which ‘were of the explosion type’. Harmonic tremors were continually recorded. Explosions produced ash plumes to 1000 metres above the summit, and the plume drifted south-west. Continuous steaming produced ‘dirty white to light brown’ plumes, and an intensified crater glow was visible at night. Lava has reached approximately 3 km downslope from the crater, while incandescent blocks have descended to between 3 and 4 km downslope. Sulphur dioxide emission was high at 1,065 tonnes/day. The alert level remains at 3, and Phivolcs warns that ‘Since an increasing trend is noticeable at present, the possibility of hazardous volcanic eruption is high’.''

Mayon Volcano Bulletin 6
20 December 2009
7:00 AM

Mayon Volcano (13.2576 N, 123.6856 E) continues to exhibit a high level of activity for the past observation period. A total of two hundred twenty two (222) volcanic quakes and tremors was recorded by the seismic network. One (1) of these events was an explosion type earthquake that produced a dirty white to grayish ash column that reached a maximum height of about 500m above the summit before drifting southwest. Harmonic tremors were continuously recorded by the seismic instruments.

During a cloud break this morning, steaming activity ranged from dirty white to light brown in color. Night observation still showed intensified crater glow and continuous rolling down of incandescent materials from the crater.

The advancing lava flow has now reached approximately 4.5 kilometers downslope from the crater along Bonga-Buyuan Gully. Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) emission increased from 2,034 tonnes per day (t/d) to 7,024 t/d.
