Panic Ensues As Two Of The World’s Deadliest Volcanoes Erupt Simultaneously

Ash Volcano Eruption Miles

The two volcanoes are thousands of miles apart but are on the edge of the same tectonic plate – the Phillippine Plate – sparking fears of a major seismic shift, more volcanic activity and even earthquakes and tsunamis. More than 1,200 people have been evacuated from within a 1.9-mile containment zone around Mount Egon in Kupang, eastern Indonesia – one of the most volcanic parts of the globe. It was followed moments later by the eruption of Zhupanovsky on Russia’s eastern coast which spewed lava FIVE MILES into the air. The latter explosion is likely to affect air traffic in Russia, but the huge ash cloud is also drifting east over the Pacific Ocean so the impact on flights could be much worse. In Asia, officials distributed thousands of gas masks to villagers around the volcano on eastern Flores island amid fears of a major eruption as the choking fumes worsened.
