Something Strange With Volcano Eruption in Chile
Modern Survival Blog ^ | June 4, 2011 at 11:50 pm (PT) | Modern Survival Blog

Posted on 06/07/2011 11:07:08 AM PDT by Quix

What appears to be an enormous ash cloud rising from the eruption of a long dormant volcano named Puyehuein southern Chile on June 4, 2011, isn’t quite matching up with the location of the recorded earthquakes today in the immediate area.

“The Cordon Caulle (volcanic range) has entered an eruptive process, with an explosion resulting in a 10-kilometer-high gas column,” Chilean state emergency office said.

The thing is, for some unknown reason, as of this writing, eight earthquakes near magnitude 5 have shook the earth near the Puyehue volcano. The problem is, the earthquakes are located 20 to 40 miles away from the eruption! Very Strange Indeed. (Strange because one would think that the earthquakes associated with a given erupting volcano would be very close to the volcano itself. Instead, these strong quakes are apparently tectonic.)

There’s something brewing or interacting quite a distance from the eruption, but is quite obviously directly related. We’re talking about enormous energies here.

In addition, apparently the volcano itself has not erupted from it’s old caldera. Instead, it has ripped a huge gash into the surface of the earth 6 miles long by 3 miles wide, 2.5 miles away! Amazing.

Thousands of people are being evacuated from the area, which is located about 60 miles northwest of San Carlos. The region was deeply shaken by a pair of very strong earthquakes during 2010, a magnitude 7.1 and a very large magnitude 8.8 quake, all located along the Pacific Ring of Fire.

Chile’s chain of about 2,000 volcanoes is the world’s second largest after Indonesia. Some 50 to 60 are on record as having erupted, and 500 are potentially active.

The ash plume has now reached Argentina.
The eruption apparently extends to the Caulle Mountain Range, an adjacent volcanic fissure.

Currently, Puyehue has an eruption rating of VEI-3 (Volcanic Explosivity Index). The last time that this volcano blew it’s top with a VEI-3 was during 1929, when it erupted for 3 months between December and February. How coincidental is it that it occurred during the ‘Great Depression’. Did you know that home values now during 2011 have dropped lower than during the Great Depression (about 31%), but we’re supposedly not in a depression? But I digress…

Why post about volcanic eruptions like this one on a ‘survival’ site?
Answer: To illustrate how we become complacent. This volcano has been inactive for decades, and then suddenly, ka-boom. We must realize that we are just tiny specs of life living on top of a thin crust of shifting solid earth, and at the mercy of mother nature. It’s always stunning to observe the power that lies beneath our feet.

Many are convinced that all is well.

Nothing unusual is going on.

Everything continues as it always has.

2 Peter 3:2-4

New King James Version (NKJV)

2 that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us,[a] the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

If something strange were going on they would be erupting downward, so as long as they erupt upward it is business as usual.

Its called a linear vent eruption and they aren't even remotely uncommon.

Sounds like time to readjust where the 12th Imam/Mahdi will be appearing. How arrogant can Ahmadinejad be thinking that it would happen in Iran.

Three polynomial words, escatological nomenclature or string index this:

Ring of Fire = End of Time

On a lighter note, and to the repudiation of the left, it also helps to debunk climate change caused by Homo Sapiens.

I don’t think this event by itself is indicative of anything pertaining to the end times. It will be both dramatic and undeniable when the events truly begin to be “out of the norm”. In other words, we haven’t seen anything yet.

The ME being organized according to Biblical prophecy is currently under way and the diminishing influence of America has dramatically been hastened under the pos we have in the WH which portends to some rather interesting times in our foreseeable future.

Watch closely as Russia and Iran begin to work more closely together and ME nations work with Russia and China. The closer that alliance becomes the more we will see weather disruptions.

I don’t know about this specific geologic area, but there are known volcanic chains, such as in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S.A., which are known to share a huge, interconnected underground pool of molten rock (magma). Mts. Rainier, Snt. Helens, and Adams are one such group.

As the molten lava erupts, the chamber below is emptied and causes the earth’s crust above to shift. I suspect that is what causes these earthquakes.

The description given is reminiscent of a tablet eruption, where a seam, or crack, in the earth’s crust opens up and molten rock flows like a thick sheet of plastic rather than a vocanic cone spewing forth magma. It is still an eruption though this type is more common on the seafloor, as the magma doesn’t have to erupt through a continental plate.

Yes, a linear vent eruption.

I referred to it as a tablet eruption but then my geologic nomenclature is rather old fashioned and not as up to date as cripplecreek’s.

They appear to be very common in Iceland. It looks like they happen in Hawaii as well but under a different set of conditions.

This could be easily explained by movement of magma within the magma chamber beneath the volcano. They can be very strangely shaped.

Here is the magma chamber under Yellowstone.

>>>I think it is interesting that dormant volcano after dormant volcano keeps waking up. What’s up with that?<<<

The Internet. Not so many years ago you’d have never known about this eruption because the MSM would’ve ignored it like they did most world news. Thanks to the net we are now able to be aware of things that the MSM still ignore. This does not mean we’re having any more natural events than we used to, it just means we know about more of them these days.

I’m suggesting that this eruption may be associated with last year’s megaquake which was only about 100 miles away.

Oh, I know that. I am sorry—my last post should have been a general one...not directly pointed at you.

Its just that volcanoes are nothing new. If one appeared in the Appalachians, THAT would be news.

The world is a big place, and stuff is happening under us all of the time. The fact that the earthquakes don’t fit the “normal” locations of the past does not mean they are a sign of the end of the world.

Some folks are just looking for dots to connect, rather than standing in awe at the power of nature.

We had a tornado sweep though Western MA last week. Normal? Not all. But a once every 30 year type of thing...yup. And it was truly an awesome display of nature.
