Katla, a giant volcano hidden beneath the ice cap of Mýrdalsjökull glacier, is busy filling its magma chambers. An eruption in Katla would dwarf the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption. The volcano is long “overdue” for an eruption, as it has historically erupted once every 40-80 years. The last known eruption in Katla was in 1918.

THE 1918 ERUPTION Katla erupts once every 40-80 years. Its last eruption was in 1918, making it 20-40 years overdue for an eruption.

A group of Icelandic and British geologists have recently finished a research mission studying gas emissions from the volcano. The studies showed that Katla is emitting enormous quantities of CO2. The volcano releases at least 20 kilotons of C02 every day. Only two volcanoes worldwide are known to emit more CO2.

These enormous CO2 emissions confirm significant activity in the volcano. It is highly unlikely that these emissions could be produced by geothermal activity. There must also be a magma build up to release this quantity of gas.

However, more studies are needed to determine if the gas emissions from Katla are stable, or if they are increasing. It is well known from other volcanoes that CO2 emissions increase weeks or years ahead of eruptions. This is a clear sign we need to keep a close eye on Katla. She isn’t just doing nothing, and these findings confirm that there is something going on.

The scientists also detected significant quantities of methane and hydrogen sulfide. These gases can be present in dangerously high quantities where the rivers Emstruá and Múlakvísl emerge from beneath the glacier. People should show extreme caution when exploring ice caves in Mýrdalsjökull.

Meanwhile, a sharp earthquake swarm has been detected in Öræfajökull, one of the most powerful volcanoes in Iceland, since yesterday. A total of 15 quakes have been recorded in the volcano within the past 48 hours, including two significant M2+ quakes: A M2.7 quake Tuesday evening and a M2.6 on Wednesday. The volcano is kept under close surveillance.

  1. END TIMES SIGNS LATEST STRANGE EVENTS (SEP 15, 2018) THIS HAPPENED ON OUR EARTH | EXTREME WEATHER

    I love this Youtube channel. It is amazing that some part of Salt Lake in Utah got bloody color. Utah, especially Mormon temples have huge population of Draco Reptilians who are witnessed by many people. Draco Reptilians are walking with their tails in the Secret Underground Bases just under those Mormon temples. The blood might have come from those Draco Reptilians and their hybrids killed in their underground base just under Salt Lake. Galactic Federation of Light is cleaning up those cannibal aliens on the Earth in full speed, right now.

    My conclusion is, at this Reptilian Base (including their underground base), called Sunspot Observatory has been attacked and cleansed by Galactic Federation of Light. Many of Draco Reptilians were killed on this base just like Great Slat Lake Underground Base had been attacked, and the part of the lake became so bloody. Reptilian militants and hybrids were so scared that they evacuated the base. If those Reptilian militants belong to US Air Force return to this base, it is high possibility they are going to be removed from the Earth (means death).
