Boom! Russian Volcano Awakens After Centuries of Sleep


According to Live Science

The last time Kambalny volcano erupted, the United States was not yet a country. But the Russian volcano awoke last week, after a nearly 250-year snooze, with a violent eruption.

Kambalny is the southernmost volcano on Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula, an area about the size of California that is home to more than 300 volcanoes. In fact, the peninsula hosts the world’s highest concentration of active volcanoes, and so eruptions are common. But Kambalny surprised scientists when it shook awake on March 24 and began to erupt.

“Nothing pointed to a possible eruption of the Kambalny,” Olga Girina, head of KVERT, told Russian news agency TASS, according to Russia Beyond the Headlines. “It is a pure surprise for us. We continue the monitoring and will analyze possible threats as data come in.”

The thick, ash-laden plume that erupted from Kambalny could be seen from space. A day after the eruption began, NASA’s Terra satellite captured an image of the volcano and its plume, which stretched about 60 miles (100 kilometers) southwest, according to NASA’s Earth Observatory. Kamchatka Peninsula is largely covered in snow at this time of year, and the NASA image also includes the dark stain of ash covering the snow to the west. According to NASA researchers, by March 26, ash covered the ground all around the volcano.

For anyone claiming climate change isn’t real, you’re retarded. It’s happening all around us, the ice caps are melting, volcanoes are going off, it’s winter when it’s supposed to be summer and summer when it’s supposed to be winter not to mention climate change is foretold in the Bible

Luke 21:11King James Version (KJV)

11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
