On the brink: Tremors increase at Anak Krakatau to 5,000 a day | The Extinction Protocol: 2012 and beyond

October 22, 2011 – SUMATRA, Indonesia –Several earthquakes have struck near south Sumatra of the 5.0 and 5.1 magnitude range today- making a tense situation on the volcanically-dotted archipelago potentially even more volatile. The Anak Krakatau volcano is showing signs of increased seismic activity. Authorities fear the volcano is building towards an eruption that could dwarf the one which occurred in 2007. Indonesia’s Volcanology and Geological Disasters Mitigation Center reported the numbers of seismic tremors now registering from the volcano have exceeded 5,000 a day. There are also reports of a gaseous mist which has seeped from the volcano and have enshrouded it in a yellowish haze- something that has never been observed at the volcano before. Anak Krakatau was placed on orange level 3 status alert on September 30, 2011.

    With the recent reports on Anak Karakatau, Canary Islands, Kamchatka & eyajfallajokull (whew), is this an increase in volcanism in general or the result of better monitoring & reporting worldwide?
