More Volcano Stuff



Fox News reports that Italy is warning about Ischia, the island volcano right next to Naples, that it may erupt soon. It is also in close proximity to Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano that destroyed the Roman city of Pompeii, and also next to Naples.

See here.



I already mentioned that the Eyjafjallajökull volcano is close to the Hekla volcano.

The last time Eyjafjallajökull erupted was 1821 and the last time Ischia erupted was 1302, both relatively infrequent.
Their larger counterparts, Hekla and Vesuvius, erupted last in 2000 and 1944 respectively, which is much more recent and they erupt much more frequently. I noted in the earlier post that they are 2 of the volcanoes that Rav Yaakov Emden called the openings of Gehinnom.

Another news item today is that a Guatemalan volcano spread ash all over the western part of the country.

What all this means is open to interpretation, but along with all the other earthquakes that have been happening recently, is likely a sign for all of us to take heed and do Teshuva.

Vesuvius and Mount Etna are two very big volcanos in Italy. Maybe Mount Etna is along a ridge with Ischia, like the Iceland volcano was near Hekla?

Forgot to tell you, great posting lately.

Mt. Etna is in Sicily, so although it's relatively close to the Naples (relative to the rest of Europe), I couldn't in good conscience call it close.

Thanks for your kind words.

If I'm not mistaken they are on different tectonic plates so no kesher. Although plate activity all round would explain Guatemalan volcanic activity.

Yaak, what isn't a call for us to take heed and do teshuva?

You're right, Nosson, but there seem to be more of these this year.

The Vesuvius erupted and destroyed Pompei in the yar 79 c.e., the same year when Titus Harashah became Roman Emperor.
This was Hashem's punishment.

I'm a bit scared because I live in Naples, and I hope that Hashem will protect the ones who don't hate Am Yisrael.

YY - What all this means is open to interpretation, but along with all the other earthquakes that have been happening recently, is likely a sign for all of us to take heed and do Teshuva.

So if there were no earthquakes for a while would that be a sign for all of us to not take heed, and not do teshuva?

No, Mark - never said or implied that. Of course, one should always do Teshuva.

As we read on the Yamim Nora'im "Uvchein Tein Pahdecha...", Hashem puts things into the world to scare us to know he's around and to arouse our Teshuva. There are numerous examples of this.
