First, it supplied some of the most stunning images of a volcanic eruption ever captured, and now it turns out that Raikoke is the volcano that keeps on giving when it comes to photo ops.
California's next 'big one' may not be an earthquake. According to a new study from the U.S. Geological Survey, a future volcanic eruption is not only inevitable, hundreds of thousands of people.Raikoke volcano on the Kuril Islands e rupting on June 22, 2019.

May 23, 2019. Donate. A geologist has said that if the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts, it would destroy most of the United States, all but wiping the country off of the map. Dr. Jerzy Zaba is importantly not predicting that the volcano is going to erupt soon, but simply stating that it does have the power to destroy humanity and life as we know it. According to Tech.
A hiker was killed when the volcano erupted on the small island of Stromboli, in the Tyrrhenian Sea, on Jul. 3, 2019. In the aftermath of the eruption, the Italian Air Force has dispatched AMX.
The volcano, which sits in the Kuril Islands off the eastern coast of Russia, erupted on June 22, 2019. Early data from NASA suggested that the explosion injected sulfur dioxide gas, which can lead to the formation of aerosols, into Earth’s stratosphere—a layer of the atmosphere that begins about 7.5 miles above the surface.

A strong eruption took place at Russian Shiveluch volcano at 00:57 UTC on August 29, 2019, producing an ash column up to 10.3 km (34 000 feet) above sea level. Sheveluch is one of Kamchatka's largest and most active volcanic structures. Volcanic ash emissions continued through the night.
A powerful eruption at Raikoke began at 1805 on 21 June 2019 (UTC). Volcano Observatory Notices for Aviation (VONA's) issued by KVERT described the large ash plume that rapidly rose to 10-13 km altitude and extended for 370 km NE within the first two hours (figure 3). After eight hours, the plume extended 605 km ENE; it had reached 1,160 km E by 13 hours after the first explosion (figure 4.
Unlike some of its perpetually active neighbors on the Kamchatka Peninsula, Raikoke Volcano on the Kuril Islands rarely erupts. The small, oval-shaped island most recently exploded in 1924 and in 1778. The dormant period ended around 4:00 a.m. local time on June 22, 2019, when a vast plume of ash and volcanic gases shot up from its 700-meter-wide crater.
Shiveluch volcano has grown a huge lava dome. It reaches 600 Meters tall (That’s over 1,900 feet tall!). It’s in danger of collapse and causing pyroclastic flows that would do damage up to 10KM away. Shiveluch has had over 60 large explosive eruptions during the past 10,000 years. Catastrophic eruptions took place in 1854 and 1956, when a large part of the lava dome collapsed and created a.

Russian space agency Roscosmos has released a remarkable, if slightly ominous-looking, satellite image of Peru’s Ubinas volcano, taken as it spewed an enormous column of grey ash into the sky. Snapped from the Resurs-P satellite at a height of hundreds of kilometers, the ominous image makes it appear as though a spooky skull is spilling a huge plume of ash out of its mouth into the Peruvian.
