Mount Tambora Eruption Fears Mount

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes, (and Volcanoes), in diverse places.

One of the worlds most dangerous Volcanoes is rumbling to life and scaring the living daylights out of everyone in close proximity to this monster of a Volcano, (Mount Tambora, Indonesia). In addition to that, we have an article which questions just how damaging the Icelandic volcanoes might become if they happen to once again blow their stack.

This globe of ours is certainly an active one and seems even more-so in recent months. Bible prophecy indicates that massive earthquakes and powerful volcanoes beyond anything previously recorded in history will devastate this world during the last half of the Tribulation period.
From the articles:
A magnitude 5.1 earthquake was recorded close to the Mount Tambora volcano on the Indonesian island of Sumbawa on Wednesday, as fears mounted over a possible eruption. The status of the volcano has been raised to level III (Siaga) status forcing many residents in the surrounding hillsides to evacuate to lower ground. Mount Tambora, which is responsible for the largest and deadliest volcanic eruption in recorded history, started showing signs of awakening in April. But in early August, it spewed thick white smoke 20 meters (66 feet) into the sky. Seismic activity has increased significantly during September, with between 12 and 16 earthquakes being recorded on a daily basis. An eight-kilometre exclusion zone has been set up by Indonesian authorities over fears there will be toxic gas as a direct result of the increased activity.
Beginning in 1783, Iceland endured an eight-month-long volcanic eruption that left a seemingly endless haze covering the landscape. The dry fog of microscopic aerosol particles, mostly sulfur oxides, caused the deaths of fully 20 percent of Iceland’s population, along with 75 percent of their livestock. The effects of the eruption at Laki were not limited to Iceland. In the Netherlands, trees dropped their leaves in June, as if signaling a very early autumn. The number of deaths recorded in England that year was 10-20 percent above average. Reports of deaths and health problems came from as far away as Italy. The mouthful that was Eyjafjallaj√∂kull reminded us in 2010 that volcanoes can easily bring air travel to a grinding halt, but what would happen if an eruption on the scale of Laki occurred today?

If an Icelandic volcano erupts, would tragic history repeat?
