Over the past two weeks there have been many, many earthquakes greater than magnitude 5.0
Is this just a precursor of what is to soon happen? Are these quakes “before shocks” beginning to release their energy prior to some massive worldwide earthquakes? The intensity and quantity of earthquakes has been intensifying over the past several months and even more so over the past month. Not only have we seen many, many earthquakes, but also the beginning of many, many volcanic eruptions around the globe. Volcanoes which have been inactive are starting to wake up! Are these all warning signs? I believe that this is just the start of something that is soon to occur on a massive scale, on a magnitude we have before never seen!

A new lava flow has appeared from the summit crater of Fuego volcano and is traveling towards Trinidad canyon and about 300 m long. Weak explosions occur from time to time as well, with plumes rising only a few 100 meters. The current seismic signal shows an increase of activity over the past hours.

While the rate of gas-steam(-ash) emissions remains low, the intensity of some of them and overall degassing activity have increased. A strong SO2 plume and some emission tremor are visible on current satellite and seismic data.
