Hi w_d ...... so glad you and your family are ok. It must be quite scary. I've only experienced one earthquake and it happened during the night. It felt as if all the legs of the bed were in mid-air but it only lasted a few seconds. I suppose that was what you would call a small shake. It was more than big enough for me.  :D

Those earthquakes were only 130km from here. We felt the two big ones. My house rocked a bit. There have been a lot of smaller ones but here they are just light shakes we just don't know if they'll get stronger so there is always that sense of what's next.

Carol, if you're also interested in live news in English from Japan, you might like to watch NHK World ... http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/live/

Cool ... thanks for letting us know w_d.  Here's another link ... http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2016/02/05/national/volcano-eruption-rocks-kagoshimas-sakurajima/#.VrTJH9Di8-0

The first part is from one of the Kyoto University webcams. The wide view showing the lava and static lightning is from this camera (inTarumizu). We wouldn't have seen it from most of Kagoshima City as that vent is on the southwest side facing mostly away from the city. Maybe a glow if we were looking that way.

Thanks w_d.   I didn't see anything about it in our news but it looks pretty spectacular on your link.

Oh, and that was snow on the 19th that you were seeing on the volcano. We also had a good snowstorm (first in 5 years) on the 24th and 25th that dumped over 20cm in the city, and more in the mountains. Sakurajima was pretty well covered those days. I was socked in. No snow tires and snow removal didn't come to my road at all.

Finally, after almost 5 months the volcano just erupted. They broke into programs all over Japan to announce it... well, they do a typover thing right on the top of the TV screen so you can't help but see it. The height wasn't all that special at 2,000meters but at night the lava and so much static lightning is something I haven't seen in a long while. The winds are blowing away from the city so we won't have any issues with ash;)

Carol, I think that is snow.

I wonder if Nevzat saw the new X Files on Sunday ... I'm sure he would have approved of all the conspiracy drama.  We watched the first episode tonight ... very good.

There's the snow or ash!!

 
Mommie Dearest in Devon 01/19/16 02:03

Carol .... it's cleared and I can't see ash or snow but with those clouds I think they will soon be getting rain.

 
CAROL SCARBOROUGH 01/19/16 01:50

Lol, it's clouded over now but if u are around when it clears up a bit then take a look. I don't think there has been an explosion lately for it to be ash.

 
Mommie Dearest in Devon 01/19/16 01:40

Hi Carol ..... I can't even see the volcano.

 
CAROL SCARBOROUGH 01/19/16 01:17

Is that snow or ash on the mountain??

 
Mommie Dearest in Devon 12/29/15 02:01

Carol ...... I thought we'd left a comment on here to you but no .......... now I'm wondering where on earth it is .... literally.  LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!
