June 4, 2011: Volcanic Eruption, Big Brother Watching You, Fukushima, Gun Shortage, River Monsters

Information on both volcanoes :
Puyehue and Cordón Caulle are two coalesced volcanic vents that form a major mountain massif in Puyehue National Park in the Andes of Ranco Province, Chile. In volcanology this group is known as the Puyehue-Cordón Caulle Volcanic Complex (PCCVC). Four different volcanoes constitute the volcanic group or complex, the Cordillera Nevada caldera, the Pliocene Mencheca volcano, Cordón Caulle fissure vents and the Puyehue stratovolcano. As with most stratovolcanoes on the Southern Volcanic Zone of the Andes, Puyehue and Cordón Caulle are located along the intersection of a traverse fault with the larger north-south Liquiñe-Ofqui Fault. The volcanic complex has shaped the local landscape and produced a huge variety of volcanic landforms and products over the last 300,000 years. Cinder cones, lava domes, calderas and craters can be found in the area apart from the widest variety of volcanic rocks in all the Southern Volcanic Zone, for example both primitive basalts and rhyolites. Cordón Caulle is notable for having erupted following the 1960 Valdivia earthquake, the largest recorded earthquake in history. (Source : wikipedia)

UPDATE 19:55 UTC : Our reader Juan Perez, has reported that the volcano went into eruption a little while ago. This news has been confirmed by Chilean Onemi.
UPDATE 19:40 UTC : SERNAGEOMIN is monitoring the volcano complex with six stations and a network camera.
Onemi, on the other hand has permanent monitoring points near the volcanic complex through VHF and HF radio system, communal, provincial and regional as well as links by satellite telephone. Onemi is the governmental emergency service.
UPDATE 19:24 UTC : Chile has approx. 2,000 volcanoes. 125 are seen as geologically active. The last 450 years, 60 volcanoes have been reported as erupted.
UPDATE 19:16 UTC :The earthquakes we have mentioned below are only the strongest ones measured today. Onemi reported at least 230 tremors an hour on Saturday. A very big number of earthquakes is mostly the sign of an immanent eruption.
UPDATE 19:12 UTC : Apart from this, the Puyehue-Cordón Caulle area is one of the main sites of exploration for geothermal power in Chile. Geothermal activity is manifested on the surface of Puyehue and Cordón Caulle as several boiling springs, solfataras and fumaroles
UPDATE 20:59 UTC : Onemi has reported that an additional 2,400 people has been asked to evacuate the volcano area. This means that the perimeter at risk has been widened.

Who is spying on you? Do you care who knows your information? Do you care if someone uses your information for their own benefit? People are losing their identities to others. People are losing their freedoms. The public is unaware of how much of their information is being seized under the cloak of government necessity in the fight on terror and other things. What would you do if you found out that your information was being used by other people?  Does this have to do with the New World Order?  Are they planning their moves by what information they are gathering from "the people"?


If you have any worries about the radiation from Japan, don't worry.  It's not likely that the radiation levels will get to what is harmful to your health.  Initially there was quite a panic, especially in the U.S., however, there is clear documentation that the Fukushima incident is not causing any excessive radiation to the citizens of the Unite States.  Please watch.


With the U.S. at war on two fronts in the Middle East, local law enforcement agencies are feeling the squeeze when they go to order ammunition.
A decrease in supply has led to rising costs and longer wait times for police departments whose tightening budgets already have forced them to make personnel cutbacks.
Experts tell Gannett New Jersey it has yet to become a safety issue. But rising costs and a decreased supply have put a burden on law enforcement to stockpile ammunition, and that can be a problem during lean economic times.
Some orders take a year to fill, forcing towns to make larger orders to compensate.
Mitchell C. Sklar, head of the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, told the news service that one town made a bigger order with the expectation that it would arrive over a span of 18 months. But when it arrived all at once, local officials were faced with a bill that exceeded their budget.
Police chiefs around the state spoke of rising costs and long waits to get ammunition.
"We used to spend between $12,000 to $13,000 a year but now it's around $16,000 to $18,000," Hazlet Police Chief James A. Broderick told the news service.
Some chiefs said orders take a minimum of six months to get filled, and often take up to a year.
Fairfield Police Chief Charles Voelker said departments used to be able to borrow ammunition from neighboring towns while waiting for orders to arrive, but no more.
"We are all in the same predicament and cannot afford to lend any, since there is uncertainty as to when you can repay what you borrowed," he said.
Lacey Township Police Chief William Nally recently told a budget workshop meeting that ammunition prices have doubled for his department. He told the news service that he expects prices to rise up to 35 percent for some ammunition.

Animal Planet's Jeremy Wade Risks Life And Limb To Capture River Monsters

You don't have to travel all the way to Scotland's Loch Ness to search for a real monster. There may be one lurking in water much closer to home.
For those who doubt such things, just ask the folks who live near Mississippi's Chotard Lake. In February, a fisherman pulled a 327-pound, 8 1/2-foot-long prehistoric-looking alligator gar from the freshwater site.
One well-known angler, Jeremy Wade, doesn't know the meaning of the phrase "the big one that got away." As host of the hugely popular Animal Planet series, "River Monsters," the 55-year-old biologist's life is a series of detective stories as he travels the world searching for unimaginable creatures that lurk in the murky depths of inland waterways.
"It starts with a crime scene or a story, and then it's an investigation," Wade told AOL Weird News from his home in England. "Following the analogy, I will have a list of suspects and will narrow it down to the prime suspect.
"I'll then apprehend the culprit and then I'll let him go. It's all about motivation and understanding, like why did this fish grab the leg of a person who was swimming in a lake?"
