A 1-kilometer (3,300-foot) -high column of water vapor shot up from the Pacific Ocean off a tiny Japanese island on Saturday, indicating a possible undersea volcanic eruption, a report said.
The water vapor, resembling the steam emitted by a boiling kettle, was seen from the island of Iwo Jima by Japanese troops stationed there, Kyodo News agency said.
The vapor was roughly 50 kilometers (30 miles) southeast of the island, and was believed to have been caused by an erupting volcano on the ocean floor, the report said.
Japan's Coast Guard planned to dispatch aircraft to the area to conduct a survey on Sunday.
The Meteorological Agency said there was no danger of tsunami, potentially killer waves caused by undersea seismic activity or landslides.
Iwo Jima is about 1,120 kilometers (700 miles) southeast of Tokyo.
Pooh. Monster Zero would eat Mothra for breakfast and clean his teeth with Mothra's antennae.
Do you think MSM will cover chances for a tsunami with each whale fart from now on?
Godzilla PWNS your Monster Zero.
Wow, interesting pictures. Thanks for posting.
Nonsense. Godzilla and Rodan together fought Monster Zero, but it ended as a stalemate. They were able to drive him away to Venus, but not kill him.
I stand by my assertion that Monster Zero is still the biggest baddest individual monster in the galaxy.
Er...I thought that was Ghidra? :)
I think they're the same.
Oh ho, he's got an alias! :)
There seem to be a large number of seismic activity around the Ring of Fire this last month, not to mention some hot real estate.
All that C02 is going to undo all the emissions savings the libs are feeling so good about driving in their prius' etc.
I tried some pillow lava one night, and it wasn't soft at all.
was this a personal problem? a drug experiment? a decorating disaster? did you get all geophysical? were you alone?
(I'll leave the more volcanic questions to your imagination)
Well, it seemed like a good idea, because I've always been a fan of hard rock.
Mothra was a metrosexual!
The Smog Monster was the scariest and funniest of all Godzilla movies until my personal favorite came out in the early 1980's. It was the short cartoon entitled Godzilla vs. Bambi.
IMO, Ultraman was the ultimate warrior: He was part toy, part ninja, and part Mr. Roboto. And every day in the early 1970s he'd come on UHF Channel 29 Philadelphia to kick serious monster butt.
Two uncles would agree with that, but they ain't here to say so.............
Didn't he take over where Speed Racer and Tobor the 8th Man left off ?
Great post. This stuff has fascinated me ever since I read "Birth of an Island" in 4th grade.
