More depressing news coming in as Java goes into daylight with the region covered in a minimum 3-4m of ash.

The fast, those climbing into trees or had first floor access in properties have survived.

Unofficial reports that about a tenth of the crater edge has slipped into the crust, triggering the eruption.

Almost dawn, satellites cannot penetrate the ash cloud above the affected area, ground crew and drones only.

Lets hope that these don't lead into something bigger....Like a 9.0 or so, or maybe a new volcano....

The earth is closest to the sun at this time of year - there are often stronger earthquakes around the winter solstice

And most of the big planets are in alignment, that puts a big strain on the Earth.

Under sea volcano near Tonga this morning triggers a tsunami, Australasian news confirms it is not a one off.

Some new footage emerging as planes and boats make their way to the islands.


Three reported deaths, two in Peru, more eruptions a certainty.

The disadvantages of relying on one technology is becoming clear.


There is no guarantee a repair going to last either. I suspect the broadband pipe was torn apart through the change in fixed point distance as opposed to destruction by the magma itself.

Two small populated islands north east of the volcano site had waves in excess of 40' flow over them some ten minutes after the eruption.


First supplies by ship are not expected to reach the mainland until Friday.

Explanations and questions.


Any ship or aircraft travelling towards Tonga is at risk of getting caught up in the next event.
