Prophecy Sign: Earthquakes and Volcanoes in diverse places
An eruption of Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano on the scale of the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajokull would shut down Europe as all air travel in and out of Europe would cease as clouds of ash sweep across the continent. Meanwhile earthquake activity has a great number of diverse regions of the world shaking and swaying, and long dormant volcanoes are surging back to life. All in anticipation of God shaking the earth during the coming time of global Tribulation.
Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger. Isaiah NIV
Iceland raises Bardarbunga volcano alert to orange
The risk of an eruption at Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano has increased, with signs of "ongoing magma movement", Iceland's meteorological office says. The risk level to the aviation industry has been raised to orange, the second-highest level, the met office said. Any eruption could potentially lead to flooding or an emission of gas, the office added in a statement. The Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted in 2010, producing an ash cloud that severely disrupted European airspace. The Bardarbunga volcanic system is located under the north-west region of Iceland's Vatnajokull glacier. "Intense seismic activity" began at the volcano on 16 August, and there was a strong earthquake in the region early on Monday, the met office said. "This is the strongest earthquake measured in the region since 1996.

Erupting volcano off Japan could cause tsunami
An erupting volcanic island that is expanding off Japan could trigger a tsunami if its freshly-formed lava slopes collapse into the sea, scientists say. The small, but growing, island appeared last year and quickly engulfed the already-existing island of Nishinoshima, around 1000 kilometres south of Tokyo. It now covers 1.26 square kilometres. The island's craters are currently spewing out 200,000 cubic metres of lava every day - enough to fill 80 Olympic swimming pools - which is accumulating in its east, scientists said. "If lava continues to mount on the eastern area, part of the island's slopes could collapse and cause a tsunami," warned Fukashi Maeno, assistant professor of the Earthquake Research Institute at the University of Tokyo.
