No one seems to be bothered about this one… but perhaps it’s in a remote area? From:Sent: 13 June 2011 14:20To: Andrew JohnsonSubject: Why is almost NOBODY in the world reporting on this extraordinary event Been watching this since yesterday. A series of moderate quakes surrounding a volcano in Eritrea results in said volcano erupting.UPDATE 13/06 – 12:1705 UTC : Intermediate overview of the current situation (by Pieter De Leeuw):The estimated height of the ash cloud is ~13.5km, according to the VAAC. This is an essential piece of information in predicting the current size of the eruption, as the height of the ash cloud often reflects the force behind the eruption. In this case, it would so far be an average-to-large eruption. For comparison; the ashcloud from the Eyjafjallajokull only came up to 9km in April 2010, the more recent Grimsvotn eruption in Iceland forced ash up to 20km in the air, and the 1981 Mt. St Helens eruption’s ashcloud reached 25km into the atmosphereGood read here and pics of huge dust/ash cloud from satellite, no pics from ground yet . . .earthquake-report.co… No virus found in this message.Checked by AVG – www.avg.comVersion: 10.0.1382 / Virus Database: 1513/3699 – Release Date: 06/12/11
