****************************************

afar, a triangle

twelve days ago, in eritrea, a stratovolcano thought to be extinct, which had not erupted in recorded history, the nabro volcano, erupted. a series of earthquakes, up to magnitude 5.7, preceded the eruption, which has emitted the highest levels of sulfur dioxide ever recorded from space. strong volcanic activity has continued through to today.


by coincidence, hillary clinton was on a state visit to neighbouring ethiopia, a visit she thus had to cut short.

a report from eritrea stated that the ash and lava emitted has created a new land mass measuring hundreds of square meters.

interesting times.
