It's blowing its top yet again.

Thousands evacuated amid tsunami threat as Indonesian volcano erupts again.

Indonesian rescuers are racing to evacuate up to 12,000 people after a volcano erupted again, forcing an airport to close and prompting authorities to warn of the potential of a tsunami.

Indonesia's Ruang volcano spewed lava again on Tuesday, less than two weeks since it first erupted.

The Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG) had warned the residents of Tagulandang island that a tsunami could be triggered by volcanic material collapsing into the ocean.

The warning, issued on Tuesday morning local time, remained in placed as of the afternoon.

The agency raised the alert status of Ruang to the highest level following the early morning eruption, urging residents not to go near the volcano.

Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency (BNPB) said that all 843 residents living in Ruang island, where the volcano is located, have been moved to Manado, the capital of North Sulawesi province.

Residents of Tagulandang island are being relocated to Siau island to the north.....

Indonesia's Mount Ibu volcano erupts twice, spewing red-hot lava.

Indonesia's Mount Ibu volcano has erupted twice in the same day, firing bright red lava and rocks into the night sky and triggering a spectacular display of volcanic lightning.

The 1,325 metre volcano on the eastern island of Halmahera erupted twice on Thursday, said Heruningtyas Desi Purnamasari, an official at the country's volcanology agency PVMBG.

The first eruption was at 1:30am local time, spewing incandescent lava and rocks as lightning flashes lit up its crater, PVMBG footage showed.

The second eruption was at 7:46am for two minutes, shooting volcanic ash as high as 1,200m.

Clouds of grey ash billowed into the sky from the crater, images from PVMBG showed.....

Wow! Look at the lightning, if this were the Force universe some could say it's Force Lightning.

New study of the Cascadia subduction zone, published in Science Advances magazine. https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/sciadv.adl3198

If this study is correct then it's not good news for the Northern part, off Vancouver Island, with a possible catastrophic 9.0-magnitude earthquake, leading to 40ft tsunami waves.

I have friends in the area. They all know that if the Cascadia ruptures that they are likely toast. But no one believes it will happen in their lifetime.
