Awesome Video of Volcano Erupting

Check out this great footage of Japan's Sakurajima volcano erupting on July 24, 2012.

It's one of the more active volcanoes in Japan, and I'll present some photos taken back in the 1930s that I own. Strange place, in that there are people living at the base of a damn, active volcano!

Check out this BBC link: HERE.

Since scientists are thinking there might be a link between volcano eruptions and earthquakes... let's see if there's a decent sized trembler in the next few days...

Cheers to Matthew (again) for the heads up!

  1. I've always thought it was really cool that people live right next to a giant volcano. It's like something from a video game. But I'm sure the reality of cleaning ash off of everything you own all the time sucks.

    1. Yeah... but can you imagine the insurance costs??!! It seem ridiculous to live in a place where you can die at any given moment!

  2. Well I suppose we could all die at any moment. At least they know to keep one eye on the mountain. But yeah, I can imagine insurance companies do too well there.
