Nabro, has no recorded eruption and is a very large Strato-type volcano. This swarm is encircling the mountain and certainly appears to be volcanic in nature, but it is early. If it does blow, this could be a type that is season changing. Interesting times...certainly warrants attention!

I believe we already have one of those erupting:

Good Grief!! I didn’t know there was a mountain there.

I do know that Mt. Shasta....Northern California...has hot water coming out of the top of it....but has for many years.

Mt. Lassen, within sight of Mt. Shasta, erupted in 1917 and 1919...could be off by a few years.

Hadn't heard about it. Thanks! I did hear that the first three all experienced a total meltdown, just as we had expected.

I wouldn't doubt that the continued radiation leaking from the site, eventually places it above Chernobyl as the worst nuclear contamination event ever.

What are we having for dinner? :)

some confirmation....

http://earthquake-report.com/2011/06/12/unusual-series-of-moderate-volcanic-earthquakes-in-eritrea-and-ethiopia/

UPDATE 22:35 UTC : The following satellite picture from a weather website clearly indicates that an eruption is going on in the area. Look at the upper right quarter. A point will gradually grow to a major cloud, which means that based on the scale the eruption is very huge.

I watched the loop several times. It's pretty massive and I concur with your statement that it seems to have erupted.

How big were the earthquakes coinciding with the Pinatubo eruption?

Checking it out on Google Earth. By the looks of that region I doubt there’s some guy taking it in with an iPhone. The caldera is plainly visible - actually two of them.

Yes you are correct there is a caldera complex there. This is for sure Nabro though.

This thing is massive. Really beyond my comprehension actually.

Yeah it’s a caldera....I am thinking it will be eventually just called Nabro....least the quakes suggest that was the culprit.

Well, there is a tropical wave over Ethiopia, so I’m not 100% confident it’s an eruption plume.

However, it certainly could be one.

Yes, this is going to be big and bad. Only good thing is possibly a sparse population in the immediate area. For sure climate consequences if it continues for any lenght of time.

5.7 isn't massive really, but pretty powerful for a volcanic earthquake.

When Katmai in Alaska erupted in 1912 there were 12 magnitude 6.0-7.0 earthquakes associated with it.

This thing is massive.

By diameter of rim it looks like about 12.6 Square Miles . . . if the whole thing is involved. Will be interesting to see how this develops.

Just found a scientific paper on Nabro (can't link to it as it's through an academic account, as I'm in grad school.)

It's entitled "Large magnitude silicic volcanism in north Afar: the Nabro Volcanic Range and Ma'alalta volcano" in the Bulletin of Volcanology.

Anyway, the authors found an ignimbrite sheet associated with Nabro with a volume of 20 to 100 cubic kilometers (Tambora was 50 cubic kilometers.)

Yea, the sat map is either off a bit or the plume. We should soon have confirmation from additional sources. Sure looks like it erupted though. May be some kind of atmospheric phenomena occurring in conjunction with the earthquake swarm.

The place is really the middle of nowhere and hell on earth.

However, an eruption should be visible from Djibouti, where we have a substantial military base.

If anyone has an family members over there, may want to give them a ping, if possible.
