2015 - APR - Spotlight Stories

Category: Fires And Explosions

2015-04-01 - More mysterious city-shaking explosions alarm people, this time in Bordentown and Hamilton (New Jersey):

2015-04-01 - Huge underground electrical fire hits coastal London (Britain), manholes spit fire, thousands evacuated:

Quote: "More than 2,000 people were evacuated from buildings in central London this afternoon as toxic smoke filled the streets. The Metropolitan Police declared a 'major incident' after blocks housing businesses and part of the London School of Economics were cleared by the emergency services."

Quote: "Earlier, onlookers reported struggling to breathe and 'chaos' in and around Holborn."

Quote: "Amazing photographs have captured how huge swathes of central London were plunged into darkness due to a major underground fire. An incredible aerial shot taken from the London Eye shows the area affected by the power cut almost completely blacked out after the blaze in Holborn."

Note: Last I looked, this fire was still burning 24 hours after it began. The pic of the blacked out area is in the last link. Also see the car that burst into flame on the A118 in the Stratford area in London on this day. A van just exploded and burned at 5:30 AM in the Rotherhithe area in London the other day too, mentioned in the 2015-03-27 update...

2015-04-01 - Underground electrical fire hits Finsbury Park area in coastal London (Britain):

Quote: "A witness to the Finsbury Park fire tweeted: 'So massive fires under the pavement in Holborn AND on my boyfriend's street in Finsbury Park. What's going on?' Another person wrote: 'So - there's a fire going on 5-mins from my work in Holborn AND 5-mins from my flat in Finsbury Park. Hmmm...'"

Quote: "The fire brigade said the fire was not related to the underground blaze in Holborn earlier on the same day."

Note: Suuuuure, just another one of those huge honkin' coincidences. *cough cough*

2015-04-01 - Underground electrical fire breaks out at airport in Ikeja (Nigeria):

2015-04-01 - Oil drilling rig bursts into flame in the Gulf of Mexico, at least 4 killed, 45 injured:

Quote: "At least four people have died and 45 others are believed to have been injured in a fire at an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico, the nation's state-owned oil company and local emergency services have said. Some 300 workers were evacuated from the Abkatun Permanente shallow-water platform in the Campeche Sound early on Wednesday morning, according Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex."

Quote: "A massive ball of flames engulfed an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday, killing four people and sending terrified workers jumping into the sea."

2015-04-02 - SUV bursts into flame while parked at duplex, fire spreads to garage, in Redding (California):

Quote: "The fire was reported around 8:30 a.m. when the duplex owner smelled smoke, walked outside and saw a Ford SUV engulfed in flames. The SUV was just five feet away from the duplex and flames quickly spread to the attic."

2015-04-02 - Four cars destroyed by fire at 12:30 AM while parked in parking lot in Lower Price Hill (Ohio):

2015-04-02 - Car bursts into flame at 11:20 PM while parked in garage, fire spreads to home, in Boulder County (Colorado):

2015-04-02 - Car bursts into flame while parked in parking lot in Springfield (Massachusetts):

2015-04-02 - Car bursts into flame while parked in driveway at home in Wallaceburg (Canada):

Quote: "Details are scarce at the moment, however a neighbour was able to snap a photo of the newer model Hyundai vehicle going up in flames. 'No one was in the car and no idea why it started,' the neighbour said. 'Car was apparently brand new.'"

Quote: "This poor lady had just picked this car up on Tuesday."

Note: Well, she got a couple of days of use out of it anyway!

2015-04-02 - Car bursts into flame while parked in garage, fire spreads, home destroyed, in Endeavour Hills suburb of coastal Melbourne (Australia):

Quote: "'The owners have come home, parked in the garage and their car has caught fire,' Mr Ellams said. 'By the time they escaped the garage and made themselves safe, they called 000 but the fire had already gutted the garage. When firefighters arrived, the fire had spread to the second floor and then the third floor of the house.' An aerial pumper was used in the fire fight due to the collapse."

2015-04-02 - Car bursts into flame while parked in garage, fire spreads to garage and shed, at home in Reservoir (Australia), near the coast, nobody home:

Quote: "It is believed a car fire may have spread from a garage to the large shed on Summerhill Road in Reservoir. There was no one home at the time of the blaze, but a community warning was issued due to the amount of smoke in the area and the threat to surrounding properties."

2015-04-02 - Car bursts into flame while parked at Tame Valley Industrial Estate in Wilnecote (Britain):

Quote: "The car, parked near Unite 3 Claymore, was 'well alight' and one crew from Tamworth are currently at the scene."

Note: More cars are bursting into flame generally. Since most cars spend most of their time parked, that means that more parked cars are spontaneously igniting. Many people have lost their homes, businesses and lives this way and many more certainly will because people are ignoring the problem. Unfortunately, ignoring problems doesn't make them magically disappear, and people who ignore this problem are going to get burned, definitely metaphorically and possibly literally too. Park a vehicle near anything you don't want to see burning at your own risk...

2015-04-03 - New study shows that hydrogen sulfide was important factor in Permian-Triassic extinction:

Quote: "The new report described a phenomenon called ‘marine photic zone euxinia,’ which happens when the surface waters in the ocean become devoid of oxygen and are made toxic by hydrogen sulfide –a by-product of anaerobic microbes."

Note: Heh, just as I've been saying all along. Now they're just one step away: it's happening NOW too. It might take 'em a while to reach that conclusion themselves, but since it's the truth then they don't have any choice, unless they prefer to die instead of facing reality. And once they DO reach the same conclusion, then they'll need to understand the effects, the fire vulnerabilities, the neurological problems in animals and humans, the effects on our transportation infrastructure, etc. I've already done a great deal of that work for them, so hopefully that'll give the scientists of the world a leg up once they accept reality, if they should do so before we're all dead...

2015-04-03 - GE Appliance facility devastated by six-alarm inferno in Louisville (Kentucky):

Quote: "The cause of the largest structure fire ever in Jefferson County, which turned into a six-alarm fire and drew around 200 firefighters from all suburban departments, may not be know for weeks. But the fallout was incalculable."

Quote: "About 3,000 GE production employees now working at Appliance Park were told to stay home for at least the next week — and about 3,000 salaried workers were told they'd be updated about their schedule on Monday."

Quote: "GE spokeswoman Kim Freeman said there were no known injuries. She said the building engulfed in flames was used for offices and storage, and is also used by a private supplier distribution center."

Note: I saw some semi trailers in some of the pics and videos, and there was a distribution center here, so I imagine there were some tractor trailers around here somewhere...

2015-04-03 - Nearly 600 cars destroyed by huge fire at car dealership in coastal Busan (South Korea):

Quote: "Nearly 600 cars were destroyed when a huge fire broke out at a used car dealership on Friday in South Korea's second largest city of Busan. Due to the extent of the blaze, around 200 residents were evacuated from their houses in the residential areas around the dealership. No one was injured or killed in the incident, but loss to property was estimated at around three million US dollars according to the County fire officials."

Note: In March, a tanker ship went up in flames off the coast of Busan, mentioned in the 2015-03-14 update, and a car-carrier ship burst into flame near Busan, mentioned in the 2015-03-01 update...

2015-04-03 - Update on the March 7 Public Works fire in Hopewell Township (New Jersey): 24 trucks destroyed:

Quote: "All 24 of the vehicles in the portion of the Hopewell Township Public Works building that caught fire March 7 have been declared a total loss by the township’s insurance company, township Administrator/Engineer Paul Pogorzelski said. A dump truck that caught fire for an unknown reason started the blaze, which fire companies responded to at 10:15 p.m."

Quote: "Damaged vehicles include 13 dump trucks, a front-end loader, garbage truck, street sweeper, backhoe, bucket truck, sewer/water utility truck, roller, pickup truck, air compressor, tar pot and brush mower."

Note: I mentioned that fire in the 2015-03-08 update...

2015-04-03 - Rotten-egg stench from landfill disturbing people in Lordstown (Ohio):

Quote: "Neighbors have also described an odor in the air like sulfur or rotten eggs, which could be poisonous hydrogen sulfide."

Note: Yeah, and what happens when you breathe a poison gas like hydrogen sulfide - even at low concentrations - over a long period of time? Nobody really knows, and I wouldn't want to be a participant in that experiment because I am quite sure that the effects aren't good. BEST case, your lifespan is reduced and you die earlier...

2015-04-04 - Helicopter explodes mid-air then crashes in Semenyih (Malaysia), all 6 aboard killed:

Quote: "The moment I looked up, it exploded and I saw pieces of the helicopter fall to the ground. Then, there was a bigger explosion. It was louder..."

Quote: "A helicopter crashed outside Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, killing all six people on board, including a Malaysian lawmaker who was a former ambassador to the United States, officials said."

Quote: "Selangor police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Samah Mat said the pilot of the helicopter had informed the Air Traffic Control (ATC) in Subang of seeing the AS365 Dauphin 2 explode in mid-air at about 5pm."

Note: That certainly gives credence to the eyewitness reports that the Germanwings plane that crashed in France was smoking and broke apart with an explosion shortly before it hit the mountain. Also sounds similar to the 'flash of light' that knocked a helicopter out of the sky and killed both occupants in Oklahoma City (Oklahoma), mentioned in the 2013-03-13 update. Smoke in the cabin just sent a passenger plane to an emergency landing the day prior too, in Charleston (West Virginia), mentioned in the 2015-04-03 update. This is the 39th aircraft to smoke or burn in 2015...

2015-04-04 - Underground explosions may have been caused by hydrogen sulfide in Montclair (New Jersey):

Quote: "Sewer gas was detected in some of the affected manholes and may be attributed as a cause, Puliti stated, though she added that nothing is known for certain. After multiple inspections, there were no readings of natural gas found in or near any of the manholes, noted Puliti."

Note: Sewer gas is the common name for hydrogen sulfide. So hydrogen sulfide was detected in some of these manholes. Yeah, where'd that come from? These were electrical facilities - they don't put electrical facilities in sewers. Soooo...

2015-04-04 - Underground electrical explosion and fire hits Hartford (Connecticut), blackouts ensue:

2015-04-04 - Underground fire breaks out in Dhaka (Bangladesh):

2015-04-04 - Railroad bridge over the Rock River damaged by fire near Colona (Illinois):

2015-04-04 - Two children burn to death when minivan burns in the East Valley near Las Vegas (Nevada), blamed on one of the kids:

Quote: "Two small children died Saturday evening in a minivan fire at an apartment complex in the east Las Vegas Valley. Police responded to reports of a burning vehicle at 5:55 p.m. at the Arcadia Palms Apartments, 3655 E. Sahara Ave., near U.S. 95."

Note: Did a kid start the fire? I dunno, wasn't there. (Clever way to make this story go away though, blaming a child, but without any charges.) This could be a case where there are multiple factors at play. Like the people burning to death when their CLOTHES ignite while cooking or at firepits and whatnot - what if the upholstery in that car had adsorbed some methane and/or hydrogen sulfide? Then once ignited, it would burn fast and fierce and such fires are not apt to be survivable...

2015-04-04 - Woman burns to death in burning car in Northern Gully (Australia):

Quote: "A driver has died after their car veered off a West Australian road and set the surrounding bush alight. Police say flames engulfed the car, which was travelling at low speed before it came to rest in bush in Northern Gully on Saturday afternoon."

Quote: "The death is not included in the Easter road toll because it happened on the side of the road, a police spokesman told AAP on Sunday."

Note: Low speed, so why didn't she just get out? She was probably unconscious or already dead...

2015-04-04 - Man, 39, found burned to death on couch in apartment in coastal Dubai (UAE):

Note: Similar to the kids that burned to death in the car. I bet this guy had some AC running and over time his couch (and other similar adsorbent materials) had adsorbed some methane or hydrogen sulfide that got sucked in via his AC or got in through an open window. Then all it takes is a spark, even from static electricity as you sit down, and you're history. Dubai is where one of the tallest residential high-rises in the world recently burned in a huge fire, mentioned in the 2015-02-20 update...

2015-04-05 - Truck bursts into flame while parked inside public works building, fire damages 2 more trucks, in coastal Scituate (Massachusetts):

Quote: "The town’s highway garage was left without power this weekend after a fire broke out in the building and damaged several town vehicles. Capt. William Sestito of the Scituate Fire Department said the fire was reported around 1:45 p.m. Saturday by a passerby who thought it was a brush fire. Instead, firefighters found that a truck had caught fire inside the building. 'It’s a burden on everyone,” Sestito said. “That’s where police and fire get fuel and the power’s been cut.'"

2015-04-05 - Dump truck bursts into flame while parked on Poplar Street in Monroe (Georgia):

2015-04-05 - SUV bursts into flame at 4 AM while parked at home, fire spreads to home, on coastal South Padre Island (Texas):

Quote: "Flames spread from a car to a nearby home early Sunday morning on South Padre Island, forcing residents to jump out the windows to escape, according to police. The Port Isabel, Brownsville and South Padre Island fire departments responded to the blaze at about 4 a.m. Sunday on the 100 block of East Saturn Lane."

Note: In separate incidents, four people were found dead on South Padre Island between March 18 and March 25. Right next to the Gulf of Mexico, North America's sewer, so one would expect people to be dropping dead and cars to be spontaneously igniting here. The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any methane and/or hydrogen sulfide in the air above closer to the ground, making fires, explosions and animals and people sickening and/or dying more common during those hours. Here's a Google Maps link of the area...

2015-04-05 - Two cars and garage go up in flames at 1:41 AM at home in Riverside area in Buffalo (New York):

Quote: "Three loud pops happened very, very close. And then I heard this rumbling sound and I opened my eyes and the whole room was glowing orange..."

Note: Here's a Google Maps link of the area...

2015-04-05 - Golf cart bursts into flame on porch, fire spreads, home destroyed, in coastal Bayou Vista (Texas):

Quote: "Investigators believe it could have sparked because of a golf cart parked in the home's porch."

Note: Here's a Google Maps link of the area. And here's another pile of parked vehicles spontaneously igniting and sometimes destroying other stuff, like homes. Best to keep your vehicles a safe distance away from your residence, or you could end up homeless or dead...

Quote: "A fire has been reported at the Chitré municipal landfill. Mayor Olmedo Alonso said that the cause of the fire, which was reported yesterday, is unknown. He said the fire department does not have the appropriate equipment to put the fire out."

2015-04-06 - Tire recycling center hit by huge fire, burns for at least three days, in Ceutí, Mercia (Spain):

Note: From the full hypothesis: "Trash-related facilities such as recycling centers and landfills will burn hard too, as hydrogen sulfide is absorbed into flammable absorbent materials like wood, paper, cardboard, straw, hay, dried brush, generic trash, clothing, cotton, wool."

Quote: "Power generation at the 500 MW unit of the Ballari Thermal Power Station in Karnataka has come to a grinding halt following a major fire, a BTPS official said on Tuesday."

2015-04-07 - Electrical box explodes beneath the Eads Bridge over the Mississippi River in St. Louis (Missouri):

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper. Eventually this one problem will wipe out the grid and the world will be plunged into darkness. This is the same problem that's causing underground fires and explosions and it's also causing parked vehicles to burst into flame, at least much of the time. (The other ignition source is hydrogen sulfide's reactivity with rust.) Some of these major grid-related fires are taking out electricity for days at a time, so it'd be wise to keep some flashlights and solar chargers and stuff handy...

Note: So March was pretty bad in terms of ferry ship fires, with five. 'Only' one in February and one in January. There was one in late December 2014 too, which killed over a dozen people near Greece, mentioned in the 2014-12-28 update. Ships are just another kind of vehicle, and all vehicles are going up in flames, so it'd be odd if ships weren't burning too, but they are...

2015-04-08 - Cargo ship 'Earth Quake' hit by fire on the Rhine River in Wageningen (Netherlands):

Quote: "On Apr 7, 2015, at 5.46 p.m. a fire broke out in the engine room of the Dutch flagged, self propelled barge 'Earth Quake', 1299 ts (EU-No.: 02317994), which was berthed at the quay of the Rhine port of Wageningen."

2015-04-13 - Fishing vessel 'Oleg Naydenov' bursts into flame while docked at the Canary Islands (Spain):

Quote: "Efforts by fire teams to contain the blaze in port proved futile and, amid fears it might sink and pose a hazard to other ships, two tugs were brought in to remove it. The fire continued well into yesterday when the stricken ship was 30 miles south-east of the island and there are fears that it might not burn itself out for several days, causing serious pollution. Experts have criticised the decision not to sink it immediately in deep waters as soon as it was safely out of the busy port."

Note: So that's two boats just sitting around that suddenly burst into flame, plus a big fishing trawler getting destroyed by fire and a boat exploding and burning while a man was working on it. The boatastrophe continues. These are the 314th, 315th, 316th and 317th boats or ships to burn in 2015...

2015-04-14 - Plastic recycling center damaged by deadly fire in Jieyang (China), 4 killed:

Note: From the full hypothesis: "Trash-related facilities such as recycling centers and landfills will burn hard too, as hydrogen sulfide is absorbed into flammable absorbent materials like wood, paper, cardboard, straw, hay, dried brush, generic trash, clothing, cotton, wool."

2015-04-14 - Metal recycling company hit by fire, scrap cars and metal burn, on Riverside Street in coastal Portland (Maine):

Quote: "Firefighters responded to a pile of crushed cars and steel on fire at a recycling yard Tuesday. Firefighters had to dig with heavy equipment to get to the source of the fire at the metals recycling facility Schnitzer Northeast on Riverside Street."

Quote: "Thompson estimated the pile of metal and other materials was about 100 feet long, 50 feet deep and 25 to 30 feet high."

2015-04-14 - Metal business hit by fire, metal burns, in Vidalia (Ohio):

2015-04-17 - Sardine population collapsing, sardine fishing to be closed for the year, on the West Coast:

Quote: "The mid-season closure highlights fishery managers' intense concern about a collapse that has decimated sardine stocks in recent years. Today, there are only 10 percent as many sardines in the water as there were in 2007. Council designee Michele Culver of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife proposed the closure, calling it an 'urgent action.'"

Note: The die-off situation is getting dire on the West Coast. It's not just the sardines, but sea lions and birds and starfish dying off hard, whales washing ashore dead, and probably a lot of other living things are dying too, from Mexico to Canada. The West Coast is downwind/downstream of the mammoth dead zone known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which has surely been pluming hydrogen sulfide for some time now, possibly since 2007, when the sardine collapse began, or even earlier, albeit at a lower level back then. There've been plenty of people mysteriously dying along the West Coast too...

2015-04-21 - Transit bus bursts into flame on road in Amethi (India), 9+ killed, 20 injured:

Note: These are the 229th, 230th, 231st, 232nd and 233rd buses to burn in 2015. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with rusty iron/steel, found on virtually all vehicles, and copper, especially electrified copper, also found in virtually all vehicles. So vehicles are burning up regularly, and it doesn't matter much if they're parked or driven. This same problem is causing a lot of underground electrical explosions and fires as well, along with many general home and business fires and explosions, animals dying (especially oceanic species), people mysteriously dropping dead, sometimes while foaming at the mouth or bleeding out from nose/mouth/ears, people stripping naked and going insane, etc.

You might want to keep something handy in your vehicle to knock out windows and cut seatbelts because some of these vehicular fires disable the electrical functions of vehicles, which can result in people being trapped inside their vehicle as it burns. That's usually fatal and numerous people have died that way, unable to escape before fire consumed them...

2015-04-22 - Three passengers lose consciousness, 14 sicken, passenger plane makes emergency landing in Buffalo (New York):

Quote: "Police and fire officials, along with SkyWest maintenance crews, checked over the plane and could find nothing wrong after 14 people reported feeling ill and three lost consciousness, according to the airline."

Note: Late last year, 16 people sickened on a passenger plane with vomiting and eye irritation and the plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Rome (Italy), mentioned in the 2014-12-06 update. A child and another person sickened on a passenger plane flying into Chicago (Illinois), mentioned in the 2014-10-22 update. Five passengers sickened with flu-like symptoms on a passenger plane landing in coastal Boston (Massachusetts), mentioned in the 2014-10-13 update. As many as 60 children sickened on a passenger plane flying from coastal Cape Town (South Africa) to coastal London (Britain), mentioned in the 2014-05-05 update. And so on.

Obviously, as the atmospheric contamination has intensified, passenger planes are more often flying through clouds of hydrogen sulfide and people will get poisoned that way. The seats themselves may also become contaminated - possibly before anyone even boards - and in that case nobody will smell anything, but people will still get poisoned by skin contact. The same thing is happening with ground vehicles - people are driving through invisible clouds of gas or touching their seats after the seats have been contaminated, resulting in people losing consciousness, having seizures or 'medical events', or flat-out dying while driving.

Hydrogen sulfide and methane are also both highly flammable gases, so more planes and helicopters have been coming down smoking or burning or crashing (though some of the crashes are caused by the pilot falling unconscious or dying at the controls too). And again, the same applies to ground vehicles and boats.

Things are getting extremely obvious now...

2015-04-24 - Underground electrical fire erupts on Barbrook Drive in Amblecote (Britain):

Note: Mostly, the rising number of underground fires and explosions have been blowing off manholes, igniting cars and blacking out chunks of cities, but sometimes these underground fires and explosions will inflict serious damage, like that waterfront condo complex that got destroyed there in Virginia Beach. The worst such incident, so far, was a series of underground explosions and fires that tore up streets, killed dozens of people and injured hundreds more people in the port city of Kaohsiung on the island of Taiwan, mentioned in the 2014-07-31 update. The recent huge underground fire that hit coastal London (Britain) didn't damage too much aboveground, but it did close part of the city for a few days, affecting peoples' livelihoods at businesses in the area. That incident caused thousands of people to be evacuated and was mentioned in the 2015-04-01 update...

If your kid comes up to you with a blob of unidentifiable crap and asks if they can eat it, are you going to say sure, it must be safe because you can't identify it? Derp. That's highly likely hydrogen sulfide infiltrating that building via the sewer or water systems. The people there may suffer long-term brain/kidney/heart damage, unless they just keel over dead first...

2015-04-27 - Volcanic eruptions and large earthquakes escalating across the planet:

Quote: "If it seems like earthquakes and erupting volcanoes are happening more frequently, that’s because they are. Looking at global magnitude six (M6) or greater from 1980 to 1989 there was an average of 108.5 earthquakes per year, from 2000 to 2009 the planet averaged 160.9 earthquakes per year: that is a 38.9% increase of M6+ earthquakes in recent years."

Quote: "Unrest also seems to be growing among the world’s super-volcanoes. Iceland (which is home to some of the most dangerous volcanoes on the planet), Santorini in Greece, Uturuncu in Bolivia, the Yellowstone and Long Valley calderas in the U.S., Laguna del Maule in Chile, Italy’s Campi Flegrei – almost all of the world’s active super-volcanic systems are now exhibiting some signs of inflation, an early indication that pressure is building in these volcanic systems."

2015-04-27 - Volcanic eruptions becoming more violent:

Quote: "We are beginning to witness more aggressive activity from the world’s eruptive volcanic systems. Chile’s Calbuco, Peru’s Ubinas volcano, Indonesia’s Mt. Sinabung volcano, Mexico’s Colima volcano, and Costa Rica’s Turrialba volcano are not the only volcanoes ejecting high altitude ash plumes in more powerful eruptions these days – the list of volcanoes across the globe now experiencing similar simultaneous activity is growing."

The captain first thought evacuation would not be necessary but the fire got out of control and the life boats were launched."

Quote: "'Due to the fire that it has suffered, The Sorrento may sink in the position in which it finds themselves,' the Balearic Islands port authority said in a tweet."

Quote: "The ferry was carrying 98 empty trucks and 25 with cargo."

2015-04-30 - HazMat event, rotten-egg odor hits business in Springdale (Arkansas), nothing found:

Quote: "Firefighters said a portion of the building was evacuated after a 'rotten egg smell' was reported, but there was no hazardous gas or odor found."

Note: What kind of detectors did they use? Probably just natural gas detectors. They add methyl mercaptan to natural gas so that it has any smell at all and methyl mercaptan smells like rotten eggs. But so does hydrogen sulfide, and hydrogen sulfide won't show up on natural gas detectors. Hydrogen sulfide will also sink to the ground, flow to basements, and adsorb onto matter, and once it's adsorbed onto matter - like wood, concrete, etc - then it won't show up on gas detectors even if you DO have a hydrogen sulfide gas detector. But it can still poison you via skin contact with the contaminated matter...

2015-04-30 - Volcano Calbuco erupts again, third time in a week, in Chile:

Quote: "The Chilean volcano that erupted spectacularly twice last week is causing more chaos after once again spewing a cloud of ash and gas into the sky. Calbuco began erupting again today, sending a massive plume of smoke into the clear blue sky. The volcano spewed over 200 million tonnes of ash last week, coating nearby towns, wrecking the local salmon industry, and forcing the cancellation of flights as far as Buenos Aires, some 870 miles away."

2015-04-30 - Volcano Piton de la Fournaise rumbling on Reunion Island (France):
