Mount Sinabung Erupts Blasting A Pyroclastic Flow Down The Mountainside

Thousands continue to be evacuated as volcano springs to life once more

Thousands were forced to flee their homes as Mount Sinabung, in northern Sumatra, Indonesia, began erupting over recent days. 


The volcano, which had been dormant for 400 years before a 2010 eruption, began erupting again on June 2, 2015. 

This video was uploaded on June 19 and filmed at the foot of Mount Sinabung.

The pyroclastic flow hurtling down the mountain is a mixture of hot gas, rock and lava with temperatures soaring at around 1000 degrees. The volcano is one of 129 active volcanoes in the Southeast Asian nation that sits on the Pacific Ring of Fire, where the Philippines is also located. 


On Monday, Mount Bulusan in its Bicol Region likewise erupted as well as Asama in Japan on Tuesday.

According to SFGate, the Tuesday eruption unleashed 48 avalanches streaming down the Indonesian volcano’s slopes. 




The largest avalanche reached 2.5 kilometres southeastward. Sinabung shot smoke and ash at least 700 metres into the air, resulting in faces of people fleeing the danger zone to be caked in ash.

However, the 10,000 who fled for their safety is only a third of the estimated 33,000 residents who live in the 7-kilometre radius main danger zone, said Subur Tambun, head of the local disaster mitigation agency. “The villagers insisted on tending crops. They are confident of being able to escape a major eruption. All we can do is ask them to leave,” SFGate quotes Tambun.

The slopes of Mt Sinabung, known for its fertile land that is good for growing chilies, oranges, cocoa and coffee, is home to more than 150,000 Indonesians, many of whom are reluctant to leave their homes. 

Some of those who insisted on remaining, despite the danger to their lives, said they want to guard their homes and clean up the ashfall on their farms.

In the Philippines, Bulusan had a minor steam-driven explosion on Monday that lasted 10 minutes and sent a 1-kilometre ash plume into the sky. In Japan, Asama also had a small explosion on Tuesday, although the eruption spread ash only on areas near the volcano. The first eruption of Asama since 2009 prompted the Japan Meteorological Agency to set a 2-kilometre exclusion zone, reports Wired.com.

MERS : Further Spread As Thailand Confirms First Case

So much for WHO propaganda "everything is fine" - DO NOT FLY

REUTERS VIA THE GUARDIAN
06/19/2015

Thai authorities took nearly four days to confirm the country’s first case of Middle East respiratory syndrome (Mers), the health ministry has said – a time lag likely to raise fears of a further spread of the deadly virus in Asia.


MERS
Thailand confirmed its first case of Mers on Thursday, a 75-year-old businessman from Oman, just as an outbreak in South Korea that began last month and has infected 166 people, and killed 24 of them, appeared to be levelling off.

The infected man had arrived in the Thai capital, Bangkok, on Monday on an Oman Air flight for medical treatment for a heart ailment at a private hospital.




On Friday, the public health minister, Rajata Rajatanavin, declined to identify the hospital and said the patient had been put in quarantine at an infectious diseases institute in Bangkok on Thursday.

“It took about four days to diagnose this case and two lab tests,” Rajata said.

Authorities wanted to monitor all 106 people on board the man’s flight, he said, though it was not clear how everyone could be traced.


Margaret Chan, head of WHIO continues to vomit out ludicrous WHO lies claiming that travel is "safe" and schools in South Korea should reopen despite evidence outbreak is NOT CONTAINED; statements by WHO are nothing more than a transparent attempt to save airlines from total bankruptcy and the tourist industry from crashing while achieving WHO's goal of sparking an uncontrollable pandemic

Among those being monitored were the man’s two sons, who were considered at high risk because of their proximity to their father. The two had been tested and results were due later on Friday, Rajata said.

Most of those under observation had been told to stay at home for 14 days.




The Thai case will compound fears in Asia of a repeat of a 2002-2003 outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars), which began in China and killed about 800 people globally.

Shares in Thai aviation companies and hotels fell on Friday, with hotel operator Central Plaza Hotel plunging 6.6%. Airports operator Airports of Thailand dropped 4.2% to a more than three-week low.


Countering WHO lies: If indeed MERS is "not easily spread" and "not airborne" as WHO claims, then ask yourself WHY are these men wearing Hazmat suits and respirators - it's not for the disinfectant they are spraying on the interior of this plane

Mers was first identified in humans in Saudi Arabia in 2012 and the majority of cases have been in the Middle East.

Isolated cases have cropped up in Asia before South Korea’s outbreak began last month, and Thailand is the fourth Asian country to register a case.


If indeed MERS is "not airborne" or "easily spread" then WHY have these doctors placed infected patients in negative airflow rooms and WHY are they wearing BSL-2 bio-suits in this image?

China has had one case recently, that of a South Korean man who travelled to China via Hong Kong despite authorities suggesting he stay in voluntary quarantine at home.

South Korea’s outbreak, the largest outside Saudi Arabia, has been traced to a 68-year-old man who returned from a business trip to the Middle East in early May. It has spread through hospitals, with all of its infections known to have occurred in healthcare facilities.


IF, as Margaret Chan and the WHO liars are correct in stating that MERS is "not easily spread" then WHY are these Hazmat suited workers hosing down public transportation with disinfectant?

The outbreak in South Korea appears to have peaked, with just one new case reported on Friday and the number of people in quarantine down 12% to 5,930, though authorities are taking no chances.

“Given the current developments, we have judged that it has levelled off, but we need to watch further spread, further cases from so-called intensive control hospitals,” the South Korean health ministry’s chief policy official, Kwan Deok-cheol, told a briefing in Seoul.


IF Margaret Chan is correct in stating that the public has "nothing to worry about" with regard to contracting MERS then WHY are thousands being quarantined by the South Korean authorities and WHY are public streets being gassed with disinfectant?

As part of those efforts, South Korean authorities were contacting nearly 42,000 people who had visited a hospital in the capital, Seoul, which is at the centre of the outbreak, with half of the country’s infections happening there.


DO NOT LISTEN TO CHAN; DO NOT
LISTEN TO THE WHO PROPAGANDISTS
AND LIARS
Thailand was screening passengers from countries seen as at risk of Mers and stepping up public information about the virus, another health official said.

The Middle East is an important source of tourists for Thailand, with arrivals from the region up by nearly 50% in January, according to the tourism office.

Bangkok is also one of the region’s main aviation hubs.

The vast majority of Mers infections have been in Saudi Arabia, where more than 1,000 people have been infected since 2012, and about 454 have died. There is no cure.
