The continuous activity in the Cascadia Subduction Zone becomes more ominous by the day (IMO), and the people of Mexico are praying the Popocatepetl volcano will not experience a major eruption, as millions of people live within a 60 mile radius of the volcano.


EarthQuake & Volcano Update for April 22nd, And It Isn't Good

This will be Short. First , the Mexican government has issued a Red Alert for the Popocatepetl volcano, where millions of people live with a 60 mile radius of Popocatepetl.

People living on the slopes of the Popocatepetl volcano near Mexico City are watching with concern as the volcano spews ash and burning rocks.

Columns of ash have been shooting from more than 60 openings in the crust of the 5,450m (17,900-foot) volcano.

The authorities have raised the alert level and have planned evacuation routes and shelters in case of a large explosion.

The above volcano has been erupting for days and appears to be building-up for a major eruption. Let's hope not.

In news that could directly affect the United States, there has been another 4.4 magnitude earthquake in the area of the Cascadia Subduction Zone at a depth of 7.2 miles. This new quake is in the northernmost region of the Zone. I would like to see the USGS tell me now that the Cascadia Subduction Zone has not become active again (Sic).

Again, be safe, and above all, be prepared. I believe that this activity reinforces the previous article that I posted titled "The Latest Nuclear Issue In Japan & Article The MSM Is Refusing To Report When Millions Of Lives At Stake," as the Cascadia Subduction Zone, if it does experience a Mega-Quake in the near future, could provide the Tsunami that would devastate the rest of the Daiichi nuclear plant in Fukushima, Japan. It also stands as evidence that earthquakes and volcanic activity are moving northward and our belief in Earthquake patterns.

NOTE: The great photo of the Popocatepetl volcano was submitted by Maria De Wind who posts on the Blog 12160, of which I am also a member. If you click her name you can view other photos and videos she has posted from Mexico. Last I heard from her, she was "heading south and would be back in approx. a week. If this volcano does experience a major eruption, it could become one of the global communities greatest tragedies and has the potential of taking more lives than the 2004 Tsunami that struck Indonesia in 2004.
