Merapi Eruption Near post #1  quote:



Experts monitoring the volcano, in central Java, raised its alert status to the highest level on Saturday.

Thousands of people have been moved from the volcano's upper slopes, but a small number are refusing to leave.

So far there have been no confirmed reports of fresh lava flows from Mount Merapi on Monday, but the volcano is becoming more active by the day.

It seems that more natural disasters are happening these days. Sometimes I get the sense that our days on earth are numbered. Its just scary. I now dread reading about these natural disasters. The magnitude of these disasters is what scares me the most, its just not normal. What type of world is my six year old child going to grow up in with the earth moving under her feet?

Is it that more are happening or that we are hearing about it more in this age of Cable / Satellite TV, 24 hour news and the internet.

When you look back at history there were just a many events as there are now maybe more. So no I don't think that there are more just that we hear about them quicker. If you think about it, if something happened on in America prior to 1492 would it be in history books??? But we do know from history that there were catastropies like Mt. Vesuvisus or other storms that did make the history books and the Bible.

I think that there are a lot more happening now, because of how much we've used the earth, and not taken as great of care of her as we should have.


But, you're right.... we can hear about things within a moments notice, because of our technology now. Many years ago, there was only word of mouth, from those that would travel great lengths to bring it.

Central U.S Earthquakes from 1800 to 1983


Then you have some major California Shakes. And of course this is just one state


Fort Tejon, California

Magnitude 7.9

Owens Valley, California
1872 03 26 10:30 UTC
Magnitude 7.4

San Francisco, California
1906 04 18 13:12:21 UTC
Magnitude 7.8

Lompoc, California

You can look here for Earthquake history in the U.S.

How about some U.S. Volcano History
Yellowstone
http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/yvo/history.html

Volcano Eurptions in the U.S.
http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/Volcanoes/Historical.html

So no I don't think there are more.
