This goddam Bali volcano is taking its own sweet time to erupt. Nearly 100,000 people have been evacuated but so far crickets. Seriously, just kaboom already, my Bintang is getting warm.

If you happen to be in Bali at the moment, you might want to look out your window. The volcano is about to blow. No one is quite sure what will happen but a 12km evacuation zone has been ordered. Mount Agung hasn’t popped its top for over 60 years but all indications are it’s about to. So far over 200,000 people have been evacuated from the danger zone but the bigger problem is how to get off the island. If Agung sends clouds of ash into the air there won’t be any planes allowed to land or depart. Might want to stock up on Bintang….just saying.
New Zealand’s Mt Tongariro volcano has just erupted….run!!!!
o Oh, I don’t won’t to be alarmist or anything but run people living near Mt Tongariro, seems your volcano has decided to erupt after 100 years of sleep. Despite no orders to evacuate just yet, Air New Zealand flights have been cancelled until the ash cloud has dispersed. The cloud of ash came from a new hole on the side of the North Island mountain and experts are yet to determine if there is more to come. The area has been experiencing volcanic related earthquakes since July.
What’s 20,000 foot high, lives in southwest Bolivia and is blowing up like a giant balloon? If you said a volcano, you’re spot on, now run!!!!! Scientists have been scratching their heads trying to work out why the area below and around Uturuncu is rising so fast. From current calculations the magma beneath the volcano is growing at about 27 cubic feet per second which is 10 times faster than normal magma growth. Oh by the way did I happen to mention the Uturuncu volcano is surrounded by a series of dormant supervolcanoes, which means if for some chance one of them erupts it will make Mount St Helens look like a burst pimple. Modern civilization has never witnessed a supervolcanoes fury and scientists are just praying that Uturuncu isn’t forming into one because that would give Mayan believers cause for celebrations!
