An Alaskan volcanic eruption has recently caused commercial aircraft to avoid the area around the mountain. The eruption is quite enormous, with ash being thrown as much as 35000 feet into the air. Even aircraft flying at rather high altitudes must, therefore, avoid the cold Alaskan region. While the area is sparsely populated, it is not uninhabited, and those on the ground may also be in danger.
Alaskan villagers have been warned about the danger. A few months worth of minor eruptions has given way to a single large one. The largest and most recent eruption, which went on for three hours, poses a threat to people living on the Aleutian Islands. Volcanic eruptions are capable of causing lightning strikes, which there were hundreds of during the three hour period. There has been more volcanic activity in the world in general over the last few months than is usually expected.
Recent Alaskan volcanic eruption linked to increased major earthquake risk in the near future
While volcanoes tend to kill few people (the disastrous nineteenth century Krakatoa eruption being a major exception to this rule), earthquakes can be big killers. Earthquakes strike immediately and often strike major population centers. As well as an increase in volcanic activity, some experts predict that an increase in earthquakes can be expected shortly. An increase in volcanic activity often precedes an increase in earthquakes.
Those living around the San Andreas fault line in Southern California ought to be prepared for a potential disaster. Southern California has been due for a very large earthquake for a long time. Volcanoes are a sign that the earth is under pressure that must be released, with potentially catastrophic effects.
While finding a way to prevent earthquakes might not be technologically possible for a long time if ever, great advances could be made in our ability to predict earthquakes shortly. At the current point in time, living near a major fault line is dangerous. With reliable earthquake prediction, we could live in a world where earthquakes are no longer more dangerous than volcanoes are. For now, those who choose to live around major fault lines consider it an acceptable risk.
