Taal volcano in the Philippines about to blow.

Recommended Posts

"Taal volcano entered a period of intense unrest... that progressed into magmatic eruption at 02:49 to 04:28... this is characterised by weak lava fountaining accompanied by thunder and flashes of lightning," the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) said in a statement.

But PHIVOLCS director Renato Solidum said that signs of a hazardous eruption, including "flows of ashes, rocks, gas at speeds of more than 60 kph horizontally" had not yet occurred, according to CNN Philippines.

Good.  We need a really big volcanic eruption to cool the planet for a couple of years.  Prepare you anus for next winter.  It has a VEI of 6 which would be on par of Vesuvius in Italy.  It could really mess some things us and if it fully erupts, it could cause basin wide tsunami's.  If I lived anywhere along the coast of the South China Sea and maybe even the Philippine Sea, I would be paying close attention to this.

It takes a little while for the aerosols to make their way around the planet.  It may be too soon to affect this winter, but if it really erupts we may have a nice summer and fall.

I live 140 km from the volcano. So far there is only a little tint to the sky that looks odd. I think I will buy a mask when I go out to dinner.

Wait. I thought we banned aerosols. Has anyone informed the volcano?

Now the city government is warning of pea sized ash fall tomorrow.

That is a pea sized piece of rock thrown almost 100 miles.

Those people seem to be a little too close to an erupting volcano.

The crater lake on Volcano Island is the largest lake on an island in a lake on an island in the world.

Taal has an island within a lake, that is on an island within a lake, that is on an island within the sea: Vulcan Point Island is within Main Crater Lake, which is on Volcano Island.

Said "inception island" is literally in the caldera, and has houses and stuff on it.  Probably not good for resale, Folks.

ETA:
Philipine military people helping evacuate locals are carrying weapons and ammo.  Odd.

For help trying to understand this, here is a satellite image of the volcano with a lake inside of a lake on a volcanic island.

Edit: and here is the island in the lake of the volcano in a lake on a volcanic island.

You need a volcanic eruption to help cool the earth down for a while?  Okay, but that's a taal order.

When shit really hits the fan, how else are you going to keep the civilians from overwhelming your truck and keeping you from escaping?  Do you ever watch any movies bro?

Based on how much time the leaders are spending on talking about mask price caps, I'd hurry and buy one or three if I were you.

They could probably use a break from all the humidity.

It's also going to give them a break from all the humanity.

There are clear blue skies this morning and no sign of ash fall where I live. The kids were given the day off school so they can be outside playing when the big eruption  happens.
