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.
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.
