Volcano erupts in Nigeria?? (UPDATED)

Update at bottom
Volcanic eruption in Benue, one person feared dead
News Nov 5, 2010; By Peter Duru, Makurdi

“A volcanic eruption has occurred at the mountainous Mkomon district of Kwande Local government of Benue State with one person feared dead while properties worth millions of Naira have also been destroyed. Residents of the affected community have deserted their homes in search of safer place. Sources of portable water have been polluted by the heavy magma emitted from the eruption. Vanguard gathered from eye witnesses that there were heavy vibrations around the mountains at the border with Cameroun Republic, followed by eruptions at six points on the mountainous terrain. The vibrations spewed magma which covered streams and hand dug wells and the entire community leaving the people without portable water. At the moment, there is panic amongst the people who are said to be cut off completely from the rest of the world as a result of the occurrence and damages to roads and bridges which was occasioned by the heavy vibration.”

Volcanic eruptions in Benue
• 1 killed, property destroyed
From ROSE EJEMBI, Makurdi, Saturday, November 6, 2010
“Tragedy struck yesterday in Mkomon District, Kwande Local Government Area, Benue State, a border community to Cameroun, when volcanic eruptions on a mountain claimed the life of one person as well as destroyed property worth millions of naira. Saturday Sun gathered that the tragedy occurred while residents of the community were attending the annual thanksgiving service of the local church. Terzungwer Iorhemen, a member of the community, told our correspondent that midway into the thanksgiving service, vibrations on the earth overwhelmed the area, located at the Cameroun boundary. “While the thanksgiving service was going on, we suddenly noticed heavy vibrations in the mountain bordering the area with Cameroun Republic, which was followed by a sudden eruption from six points on the mountainous terrain,” he said. He disclosed that the vibrations were followed by the eruption of lava from the mountain covering wells, streams, trees and houses in the area, leaving residents with no other option than to flee for their lives.”

The bible says, “Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.” (Luke 21:26). And the GREAT SHAKING continues! I hope your heart is shaken, people, and you realize it is God shaking your shoulder as His call to you to wake up, wake up from your deathly slumber.

Well, it’s been a day later and there are no other reports on the event and no pictures. I’m officially suspicious.

More volcanoes erupting

Several more volcanic eruptions, this time, in the South Pacific.

Volcanic eruptions in Vanuatu and CNMI
May 31, 2010 16:20:40

“A giant plume of volcanic ash is disrupting flights in the Pacific and threatening villagers in Vanuatu, echoing similar problems which caused air traffic chaos in Europe. Forecasters in New Zealand say the cloud, spewing from Vanuatu’s Mount Yasur volcano, was about 18-hundred metres high, covering an area of about 200 square kilometres. Tourists have been urged to stay away from the volcano on Tanna island, which has disrupted domestic flights in neighbouring New Caledonia.” [that’s a mile high ash plume!]

“Meanwhile, an underwater volcanic eruption has led to a state of disaster being declared across the entire CNMI, the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands. The governor, Benigno Fitial, declared the state of disaster following a loud explosion at the active submarine volcano on the island of Sarigan, located about 175 kilometres north of Saipan. A huge smoke plume was seen over the island on the weekend. As a result sea and air traffic has been severely affected – posing a big threat to the CNMI’s biggest income earner, tourism.” [the smoke plume from this eruption was EIGHT miles high, according to this bulletin]

Apparently Sarigan has never been active. According to Science Blog entry here “Sarigan has not had any known historical eruptions, but two seismic swarms were centered at the volcano in August 2005. Holocene lava flows on the flanks of the volcano are the only signs of geologically recent activity at Sarigan” and here “There are no known historic eruptions of Sarigan, but there is a small pyroclastic cone at the summit, which might suggest it has erupted relatively recently (as in the last few hundred years). The only signs of life at Sarigan were an earthquake swarm in August of 2005.”

Volcano eruptions are on the rise for 2010, on track to be the most ever. More information on the number of eruptions in history, here

"The sea is bleeding" (UPDATED)

The video below is from Alabama resident John Wathen, a long-time Hurricane Creekkeeper knowledgeable with the local waters, as a volunteer pilot flew him over the area where the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig sank. Officials have stopped guessing at the amount of oil leaking although some speculate it may be closer to 1 million gallons per day.”It’s not a leak, it’s a volcano spewing oil”. The photo below is one still from the video’s heartbreaking truth.

I’ll be back later today to edit the post to offer some scriptural ties and prophetic truths to this scene. For now, watch, ponder, and pray … please …

New scale of disaster looms in the Gulf
“Concern grew Sunday that the US Gulf coast is facing a whole new level of environmental disaster after the best short-term fix for a massive oil spill ran into serious trouble. BP’s giant containment box lay idle on the seabed as engineers furiously tried to figure out how to stop it clogging with ice crystals. The British energy giant, which owns the lion’s share of the leaking oil and has accepted responsibility for the clean-up, has tried to banish the notion that the dome is a “silver bullet” to end the crisis. But should efforts fail to make the giant funnel system effective, there is no solid plan B to prevent potentially tens of millions of gallons of crude from causing one of the worst ever environmental catastrophes. Untold damage is already being done by the 3.5 million gallons estimated to be in the sea so far, but the extent of that harm will rise exponentially if the only solution is a relief well that takes months to drill.”

We discover, as there always is with Big Money, that there is more to the story, and more even beyond this that we will likely never learn. U.S. exempted BP’s Gulf of Mexico drilling from environmental impact studySince spill, feds have given 27 waivers to oil companies in gulf.

Not only were BP (and other oil companies) exempted from the rules, rules designed to protect livelihoods, and wildlife, but the crewmen involved in the explosion were not allowed to go ashore but were held on floating boats and told to sign releases and statements that could be used in court. They were told they could not go home until they did so. Coercing them to sign without benefit of legal counsel, and in their state of shock and injury is just inhumane. Read for yourself:

“Choy, a young roustabout on the rig, was handed a form to fill out, asking what he’d seen. “They came on there, and they gathered everybody in the galley on the boat and handed out … papers and stuff saying, ‘[These are] statements. You need to sign these. Nobody’s getting off here until we get one from everybody.’ “But when Choy read the Coast Guard form, he didn’t like what he saw. “At the bottom, it said something about, like, you know, this can be used as evidence in court and all that. I told them, I’m not signing it,” Choy says.”

[Choy’s wife] “Monica first learned about the explosion from a phone call from an eyewitness — Choy’s stepfather. He worked on another rig 30 miles away from the Deepwater Horizon. “And the first thing he asked is, ‘Please don’t tell me that’s the Horizon,’ and he said, ‘Because that’s my son. My son’s on that Horizon.’ And you know, they told him that it was. And he just came in a panic.” He called Monica with the news.

“Monica would spend the next 12 hours waiting to hear if her husband was dead or alive. She repeatedly called a number for Transocean, Choy’s employer, and the owner of the rig. When someone finally called her back, they could only say that her husband was on a list of the survivors.” Choy didn’t get onto land until about 28 hours after the explosion on the oil rig.

Oh, my. James 5:1-5 comes to mind here

Warning to the Rich
“Look here, you rich people: Weep and groan with anguish because of all the terrible troubles ahead of you. Your wealth is rotting away, and your fine clothes are moth-eaten rags. Your gold and silver have become worthless. The very wealth you were counting on will eat away your flesh like fire. This treasure you have accumulated will stand as evidence against you on the day of judgment. For listen! Hear the cries of the field workers whom you have cheated of their pay. The wages you held back cry out against you. The cries of those who harvest your fields have reached the ears of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. You have spent your years on earth in luxury, satisfying your every desire. You have fattened yourselves for the day of slaughter.”

It is my hope that the BP Oil Company did not fatten themselves at the risk of human life, wildlife, and the entire Gulf basin’s economy. However, we do know that James tells us that the latter days will be filled with employers who use and abuse workers so that they will be enriched. Corporate greed was an issue in Amos’s day. He said “Hear this, you who swallow up the needy, and make the poor of the land fail, saying, “When will the New Moon be past, that we may sell grain? . . . Making the ephah small and the shekel large, falsifying the balances by deceit, that we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of sandals—even sell the bad wheat?” (Amos 8:4-6) Greed was judged then also. And perhaps it is being judged now, again.
