The volcanic unrest is increasing around the world.

There are currently 26 volcanoes erupting around the world and 13 showing enhanced activity. More than 100 earthquakes have been reported near or at volcanic peaks… Well the Ring is on Fire!

The Ring of Fire is currently heating up. As shown in the map above, there are 26 erupting volcanoes (red), 13 showing enhanced signs of explosion (orange) and 45 in unrest… That’s pretty crazy, isn’t it?

Moreover, many earthquakes happen right under or near volcanoes probably announcing movement of magma or magma chamber refill. Yes more than 100 have happened as of 5:00 pm UTC. So that number might also increase in the next hours or so.

And to better prove what I am saying, look at the maps and ressources I have compiled below:

Earthquakes at volcanoes

The map shows volcanoes that have been hit (within a 20 kms radius) by earthquakes.

Erupting volcanoes

Popocatépetl (Central Mexico)

Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Washington warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 19000 ft (5800 m) altitude or flight level 190 on July 13, 2020.

Pacaya (Guatemala)

Effusive eruption of the volcano continues at elevated levels. INSIVUMEH reported that the lava flows on the southwest, northwest and northeast flank (currently about 150 m long) remain active.

Fuego (Guatemala)

Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Washington warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 15000 ft (4600 m) altitude or flight level 150.

And here the full report:

Sangay (Ecuador)

Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Washington warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 19000 ft (5800 m) altitude or flight level 190.

The Ring of Fire is preparing for the big blast. So if you live near or even on it, you better be prepared!
