Ice Age Now:
Powerful high-level eruptions have been ongoing at Raikoke volcano, Russia ever-since the massive unexpected explosion that took place on June 21-22.
According to the Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Tokyo, that eruption sent volcanic ash to an estimated 38,000 feet (11.6 km) above sea level, which is now shifting at 20 kts in a NNE direction.
On June 18, multiple major-level eruptions took place at Mexico’s Popocatépetl volcano in just 24 hours, continuing the stratovolcano’s powerful uptick of late.
According to the Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Washington, the largest eruption fired a thick ash column to an estimated 42,000 feet (12.8 km) above sea level, and comfortably into the stratosphere.
And on June 9, Sumatra’s incredibly active Sinabung Volcano exploded in spectacular fashion again, sending volcanic ash high into the atmosphere. The explosion also coincided with a minor G1 geomagnetic storm.
The Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin is warning of a thick ash plume rising to a lofty 55,000 feet (16.7 km).
