Katla Now Rumbling – Ready To Blow?

The Iceland Met office indicates that a small earthquake has occurred at the Katla location near Eyjafjallajokull on Iceland, according to the Modern Suvival Blog. It could be the first signs of “the awakening” of the powerful giant, and the last thing Europe need right now.

“A Katla eruption would likely be about ten times as powerful at the Eyjafjallajokull eruption.”

On May 17th 2010, 08:32 UTC, The Iceland Met office indicates that a small earthquake has occurred at the Katla location, near  Eyjafjallajokull, which first erupted on April 14, 2010 and is ongoing at this moment. Historically, Katla has erupted after the eruption of it’s close neighbor.

In what could be an early indication of the event that is expected to occur – an eruption of Katla –  a small earthquake is reported at the site.

Although a single earthquake is not a precursor of an eminent eruption, it could be the first signs of “the awakening” of the powerful giant.

Historically, Katla has erupted after the eruption of it’s close neighbor, Eyjafjallajokull, which first erupted on April 14, 2010 and is ongoing at this moment.

Magma channels beneath to the two volcanoes are thought to be interconnected.

A Katla eruption would likely be about ten times as powerful at the Eyjafjallajokull eruption and could cause worldwide disruption while expelling huge volumes of volcanic ash into the stratosphere which would circle the globe potentially for years, depending upon the magnitude of the eruption.

  2. Sorry. Bad taste.Very anti eu, also british (indigenous), likes volcanology, americans,and british,yes I can explain.

    • Haha..that’s okay 🙂

      I kinda agree with your take on the fishing rights – that’s a most stupid system!
      Do you know how many tons of fish that’s being thrown back in the ocean, just because the fishermen have reached their quota? It’s not few!

      Anyway – there’s always something to worry about (If I can’t think of anything, I just look up the list that David Rosenberg provided a couple of weeks ago).

      Thanks for visiting!

  3. Ah well Iceland. After Katla the E.U. will give your fishing rights to the Spaniards, so at least that will be one less worry for you!!!
