3.5 quake 27 Nov 11:59 pm (GMT -8)A very shallow magnitude 3.5 earthquake was reported late at night near Yucaipa, San Bernardino County, California, USA.According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Monday, November 27th, 2023, at 11:59 pm local time at a very shallow depth of 4.7 miles. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.A second report was later issued by The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS), which listed it as a…
Glowing lava dome in the inner Semeru's Jonggring Saloko crater (image: Andi/VolcanoDiscovery Indonesia)Visual field observations of Semeru from our expedition leader and guide from VolcanoDiscovery Indonesia, Andi Volcanist, during September-November, brought first-hand information about the volcano's behavior. The active lava dome within the Jonggring Saloko crater continues to grow with viscous fresh magma rising into it, making the dome vividly glowing. Vulcanian-type eruptions continue to take place from the lava dome at roughly regular intervals of every 30 minutes. As rainy season is currently happening in Indonesia, heavy rainfall may affect the stability of the lava dome, leading to collapse into hot rock falls. The volcano remains at Level 3 (Siaga). People are advised to stay away area from the…
Dome-shaped lava-fountaining episode from the Krakatau's cinder cone at 22:41 last night (image: PVMBG) The eruptive activity at the volcano remains elevated. Since the last update, about 15 explosive events have occurred from the cinder cone and is highly likely that intense powerful explosions are continuing even at the time of this update. At about 22:41 local time yesterday, the surveillance camera observed a short but violent eruptive episode, known as paroxysms, generating dome-shaped columns of juvenile lava material from the cinder cone. The lava-fountaining sequence lasted only 31 seconds. Whether the eruption produced a new lava flow or not is unclear yet until the satellite passes over the volcano and reveals some new thermal anomalies hinting lava flow emissions,…
5.1 quake 27 Nov 9:13 pm (GMT -9)A magnitude 5.1 earthquake near Unalaska, Aleutians West, Alaska, USA, was reported only 14 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey, considered the key international and national agency that monitors seismic activity in the US. The earthquake occurred at a moderately shallow depth of 19 miles beneath the epicenter in the evening on Monday, November 27th, 2023, at 9:13 pm local time. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.A second report was later issued by The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS), which listed it…
5.0 quake 28 Nov 2:38 am (GMT -3)Just 10 minutes ago, a 5.0-magnitude earthquake struck near La Ligua, Provincia de Petorca, Region de Valparaiso, Chile.

The swarm location last night (image: IMO)Around midnight from 26 to 27 November, a short-lived seismic tremor commenced in the area of Sýlingarfell. The continuous ground vibration lasted roughly for one hour. About 170 earthquakes of small magnitudes, not exceeding M 3.0, occurred at depths between 3-5 km. The swarm of small quakes may hint an increasing pressure within the dike. By then, the seismic activity had been relatively stable, with a daily rate of 500 quakes nearby Sýlingarfell and Hagafell. Deformation data indicate that the inflation of the ground surface continues in the area of Svartsengi along the dike intrusion. Scientists from the Icelandic Met Office still consider an eruption likely as magma flux continues within the dike intrusion.…

Map of today's active volcanoesIwo-jima (Volcano Islands): The explosive activity from the new cinder cone continues.The newly formed island has been growing as ejected tephra, mainly comprised of dark black masses of lava bombs and previously lava flows, enlarges the area island by piling lava material mostly to the north side. However, the morphology of the island undergoes strong ocean wave erosion as the edifice solely consists of loose, juvenile lava material so far, meaning it is highly prone to collapse into water. From the latest satellite imagery, acquired today by the Sentinel-2 satellite, the island is currently V-like shaped, of which the right elongated "branch" extends northward, whereas the left arm expands northwest. ...
