Iceland Could Be About To Experience A Major Volcanic Eruption

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

Iceland’s largest volcano, Katla, was just moved to yellow status.  

But that isn’t all that’s concerning. There have also been over 500 earthquakes in Iceland in the last four days.

Experts now believe that a volcanic eruption that could be quite large, may soon occur in Iceland. A series of 40 small earthquakes occurred just North East of Mount Fagradalsfjall two days ago, with the final one felt in Reykjavik, measuring at almost 4 on the Richter scale.  Following tremors at Katla in South Iceland and a glacial river flood in Múlakvísl, the Icelandic Met Office has raised the status of the famous volcano on its “Aviation Colour Code Map for Icelandic Volcanic Systems” from green to yellow. People have even been warned to stay away from the Múlakvísl  River because of the odor of sulfur. 

An earthquake of the magnitude of 3 occurred in the Katla caldera at 00:48 last night followed by a series of smaller tremors.  The seismic unrest could be connected to the glacial river flood and not connected to a possible eruption at all but the Iceland Met Office cannot be certain at this point.

 

Alert code yellow means that the volcano is active but that nothing points to an immenent eruption. If the colour code moves up to orange it means that the volcano is increasing its activity and an eruption is becoming likely. –Iceland Monitor

“It’s quite normal for Reykjanes, there have been a series of quakes there in the past few years,” the Met Office commented. And according to a post on volcano enthusiast site Volcanocafé, eruptions occur in Iceland every three to seven years.

“We have never seen a large powerful intrusion at a Mid Oceanic Ridge at such a well-instrumented place,” Carl Rehnberg wrote on Volcanocafé. “We now know that the initial swarm rapidly transformed from tectonic earthquakes, via volcano-tectonic, to earthquakes consistent with moving magma in a surprisingly short timeframe. As such this is turning into a potential eruption or a state of volcanic unrest.”  Rehnberg believes that a major eruption could be just hours away. If, however, the “current unrest” stops, there will be no eruption.

But, he explains, “At the intensity and force of the current seismic unrest, it is likely that an eruption will occur if the seismic crisis is prolonged.”

Rehnberg speculates that there is a 50 percent chance of an eruption, and that chance is increasing by the hour.  But the Icelandic Met Office, who are currently not concerned about a major volcanic eruption, citing the recent seismic activity as “normal for an active region”.

As a reminder, in response to concerns that volcanic ash ejected during the 2010 eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland would damage aircraft engines, the controlled airspace of many European countries was closed to instrument flight rules traffic, resulting in the largest air-traffic shut-down since World War II.

Historically every time Ejiajdnfkskaima (the one that disrupted air traffic for months a few years back) volcano erupts, Katla , a supervolcano connectwd to it erupts.  Every time. It might be 50 years in between, but it's only a matter of time.

 Cool.. Global climate change  and my Jeep SUV CO2 emissions will offset the volcanic winter to ensue.

I am sure the UN Agenda 21 and Paris Accord folks are on top of this.

But this earth fart might have great timing… I will defer the 200 square photo cell install on the south side roof until the cloud dissipates.

We can chalk it down under CERN effects.Since they first ran the Large Hadron Collider and now they increased the collision energy (almost doubled it from 7-8 to 13 TeV) shit seems to happen on a regular basis, like earthquakes, volcanic activity and maybe even more...VIDEO – The Mandela Effect: The Smartest Kid on Earth Blames CERN for Destroying our Universe and Explains Ithttp://dailywesterner.com/news/the-mandela-effect-the-smartest-kid-on-e…

LHC doesn't even come close to energies produced by nature. Not even a fart in a hurricane, by comparison. Everything that's happening on minute scales at LHC is going on all over the place in the universe all the time and on much larger scales.The kid might have been the smartest in the room, but that just says that everyone else was dumb.Sod all to do with 'earthquakes, volcanic activity and maybe even more...'

About 20 years ago we were traveling as a family and I picked up the local newspaper in (I believe) North Platte, Nebraska, though it might have been Grand Island.Anyway, there was a story in that local paper with the headline "Small Brush Fire Causes Little Damage."The story was pretty long, considering.  It turns out there was a small brush fire, but it really didn't burn anything of value and died out about the time the fire department showed up.  There were several quotes, too.  The property owner and Fire Chief agreed that it was fortunate the fire hadn't been larger, or it might have burned something of value.I meant to save that paper for posterity, but if you know how it is traveling by car with little children; well, that newspaper was only one of the casualties.

When I was in Kef, I just wanted them to be big enough to massage the kinks out of my back in bed.

50 % chance of an Eruption. That is like saying " It might but it might not." It is Iceland. It's a giant volcano field full of Viking babes. It might blow up like the stock market might, some day,The Fed's will just pump in some extra funding, they have this shit under control.  Bjork, the President of Iceland has released an Advisory announcement though.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDbPYoaAiyc&list=PL3Z4p6b1NfMU-QiukF7MR…

Without prior knowledge of any event, a mathematician will always assume 50% probability that the event will occur. Intelligent information of the event will produce a likely probability of the event occurring or not. Bayes probability analysis will produce an accurate predication of the event.

There is a silver lining to any giant ash cloud over Europe. Such a cloud would block the view of chemtrails. No more visible tic-tac-toe games played with silver iodide, and aluminum oxide as well as dessicated human blood cells to paint the sky a sickly whitish blue. I hope, nevertheless, that the chemtrail planes continue to fly so that the ash destroys their engines. This would also be a silver lining for a Yellowstone eruption.Ah, to see natural blue skies and clouds once again!

Where is the God of the Old Testament? Shouldn't the volcano be erupting closer home?

Or maybe Iceland is being punished for having place names like Eyjafjallajökull that even God can't pronounce.

God is right where he wants to be and you, and I, calculate as less than half a molecule in his eyes. Less than fly shit. I try to get his attention by praying but he's not talking to us directly, he just makes nice things happen, he's a bit pissed off and everyone has to decide for themselves. welcome to the Second Earth age that follows the first Earth age when the War in Heaven was, the stuff the Church Industry people do not want you to know. He will hear your prayers though but he shows up when he is ready, not at your or mine beck and call. If Prayer is Bullshit and Christianity is Bullshit, how is it that so many brilliant people have given their lives up for it ?Where is the God of the old Testament ? He is right by you, right now. Just ask him, all quiet while no one is near. He might have an Epiphany stowed up, just for you, just for the occasion on the day he knew you would ask. That is some fruity poetic religious stuff right there and it is all true.
