Eruption in Nagano/Gifu!

Recommended Posts

Whoa, that is not good.

Maybe Fuji will be next although hopefully not.

Volcanoes exploding all over the world at the moment.

No more Fuji climb for me, once this summer and no more.

Hiking in Scandinavia is safer :grr:

Yeah I see those photos of the buildings covered in ash looks more like a mid winter snow schene.

Crazy around that area, glad I am not there, feel for those trapped and caught out in it.

May it is because it is only med. doctor who can declare death (with one exception), others can say - no breathing or heartbeat. It went worst than I had thought.

Yeah some of that ash has drifted as far as Kofu, but so far we are ok here at the moment. Kofu being that little bit further south than us is a bit more in line with that volcano, but if the wind change who knows.

Made the news here tonight!

It's 'possible' that lots of volcanos might erupt, and big earthquakes happen.

 

What do they do, evacuate 80% of Japan?

Possible, I mean, with some degree of certainty and a time frame.

If you don't think they should have done some warnings, what do you think? Just let anyone die who happens to live there?

 

If a warning system exists (which I assume does) then what's it purpose if not to warn people very likely to be affected?

What, then, is the intention of the tsunami warning system? If it generates a warning, what happens? Nothing? If that's the case - it's a bloody great waste of money!

And in this case, they did not think there was a certainty or a time frame.

 

Hence no warning.

I think that is indeed the issue. The news can't declare the victims officially dead until a doctor has signed the death certificates. Probably insurance, inheritance, and other legal issues involved.

Whatever the factors, it's pretty damn taihen. I feel so sorry for those whose lives are forever changed, or worse. Just another sign that our position in nature is to be respected, not expected.

Totally agree Peetan. I'm sure I'm not the only one on here who is disgusted by some of the man-made squabbles and resulting deaths going on in the world today - Syria, Iraq etc.

 

Our time here is short and should be used positively. Nature can and will cull us whenever - not unlike the Monty Pythons foot !!!!!
