Earthquakes and Volcanoes

14 Jun 2011

At www.weatheraction.com/displayarticle.asp?a=354&c=5 Piers Corbyn has a new set of dates for EQ or volcanic activity - between the 16th and 19th of June. Meanwhile, at www.irishweatheronline.com/news/earthquakesvolcanos/ash-cloud-spreads-fr... reports on a volcano on the border of Eritrea with Ethiopia with a huge ash cloud - see space image on site. Nabro is located in the Danokil Depression and this is the second volcano to erupt in this region recentlywhich is part of the Rift Valley complex. The eruption was preceded by a cluster of seven EQs on June 12th (see also www.earthquake-report.com and www.emsc-csem.org ). Piers Corbyn earlier period at risk of EQ was June 13th- 15th (since upgraded to the 19th) and Nabro would seem to fall into this band - as a result of recent activity on the Sun. The Sun is near quiet, however - see http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/06/13/solar-activity-still-driving-in-th... but see also http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/06/13/power-grid-worries-flaring-over-so... which provides a different perspective on what is happening on the surface of the Sun and its effects on the earth's magnetosphere.
