Without any warning, Mt. Ontake suddenly erupted trapping more than 200 hikers.  The eruption continued for five hours.  Vacationing or living near volcanoes as many major cities including Tokyo are very near active major volcanos, is dangerous.  Most people have no idea what to do in an eruption.  First thing is to cover the face, secondly, take shelter on the downside of large boulders though if it is a big explosion where the top of the mountain blows sky high, there is no way of staying alive within 50 miles.

Bardarbunga Volcanic Rift Magma Movement Shaking Iceland Severely

Massive Volcanic Eruption Is Making Iceland Grow : The Two-Way : NPR: so far, this eruption isn’t spectacularly violent.  It is a rift eruption but these are quite dangerous in serious ways.  Namely, they can go on and on and on for years, decades and centuries.  A number of Great Extinctions are directly caused by rift events such as the Siberian Traps or the Decca Traps.  The gases put out by volcanoes have a very strong influence on climate and the rift events can change the climate in catastrophic ways and pays zero attention to feeble human demonstrations demanding ‘climate stability’.

Troubling Earthquake Cluster Near Noris Geyser Basin In Yellowstone

Screen shot 2014-03-30 at 5.33.47 PM

Yellowstone National Park hit by 4.8-magnitude earthquake after California is shaken by major tremor | Mail Online:  the San Andreas is important only because people foolishly built infrastructure and homes on top of or crossing this very active  slip/slide fault.  But Yellowstone is different: it can trigger an Ice Age if conditions are right and it can destroy much of the human habitation of North America if the explosion is as big as some have been in the past.  It is the Sleeping Dragon we must all fear and watch.
