Pffft, probably a false alarm like Hawaii
Everybody, remember that the Pacific ring, aka Ring of Fire is a thing.
most of the shores touching the Pacific Ocean either have a volcano on land, or aren't too far from an underwater volcano that can cause tsunamis, should they ever become active.
Rodrigo Duterte declares a War on Volcanoes, blames Obama.
Sacrifice to the volcano god! The cartoons have taught me this is the only way to prevent it!
Mount Mayon has had some pretty gnarly eruptions in the past. Hopefully this one isn’t too crazy.
On another note, this volcano looks spectacular in person. I was in awe while driving up to it a few years back.
I read this as "12,000 fleas in Philippines warn of volcano eruption"
Poor volcano. It just wanted to make friends.
My whole family is in Bicol region right now, which this Volcano resides. I used to live back in the Philippines and now I live in Florida. This is giving me anxiety issues right now. All my relatives are in there right now. Only my brother and I are right here back in Florida. I'll check on them right now. Hopefully, it's not worse than when I was a kid.
35 minutes later. Oh sorry. Never mind. All good. Fake news
I can't help but wonder if increased fracking is causing all of these natural disasters to happen... It's no secret they cause earthquakes...And Earthquakes can cause volcanic eruptions. Major fracking operations were scheduled to begin in Mexico the same month they experienced two massive earthquakes... Coincidence??? One can only speculate. But fracking is moving into the Philippines right as this is happening. Can't help but wonder if fracking is causing massive natural disasters in addition to the thousands of earthquakes that geologists have already linked to fracking.
If they aren't careful, Duarte is going g to start chucking drug dealers and users in there to appease the volcano gods.
