Volcanic eruptions never stop around the Ring of Fire.
Yesterday, February 13, 2020, the Merapi volcano in Indonesia and the Nevado del Ruiz volcano in Colombia erupted strongly. Look at the videos below!
The activity along the Ring of Fire isn’t decreasing at all. Within the last 24 hours, it experienced a M7.0 earthquake in the Kuril Islands and at least two volcanoes in Indonesia and Colombia inundated the sky with plumes of ash and gas. Here some videos:
Merapi eruption – Indonesia
The most active volcano in Indonesia spewed ash and gases around 6,500 feet in the air at 5:16 a.m. local time.
The strong eruption lasted 150 seconds and ejected volcanic rocks across a 0.62-mile radius. Ashfall was reported in villages 6.2 miles south of the volcano.
Officials warn tourists and locals to stay outside a nearly two-mile radius from the peak on fire.
The volcanic activity of Merapi has been increasing since december 2019. Therefore violent eruptions similar to that of yesterday will happen in the future.
Eruption Nevado del Ruiz – Colombia
Plumes of ash and gas drifting 1,000 meters above the Nevado del Ruiz volcano were reported by the Geological Survey of Manizales / Colombia on February 13, 2020 at 10:25 am and 11:00 am.
While ashfall was recorded to the northwest of the crater Arenas, the activity level remains Amarillo.
The ring of fire is heating up. Where will the next big earthquake or large eruption hit? Maybe at Wah Wah supervolcano in Utah?
