EMO observes intense volcanic activity on Pagan





Posted on November 29, 2012





November 29, 2012MARIANA ISLANDSAn
intense volcanic activity was monitored by the CNMI Emergency
Management Office and captured through satellite images from Nov. 24,
2012, to the present. The volcano has been emitting steam and gas since
Friday, Nov. 24, 2012. The vog shows that it’s heading south from Pagan
volcano. A gas plume from Pagan has been observed in MODIS satellite
images. Minor steam and gas plumes from Pagan have been seen as well. It
is possible that the plume could be followed by an ash emission; the
presence of a gas plume does not necessarily indicate that eruptive
activity will occur soon. Pagan is not monitored with ground-based
geophysical instrumentation and the only source of information is
satellite observation and occasional reports from observers who visit
the island. Also an intense earthquake was recorded at the EMO and
National Earthquake Information Center yesterday at 5:34pm Saipan time.
The preliminary magnitude is 5.3 on the Richter scale. It was centered
some 45 km (27 miles) south of Pagan, Northern Mariana Islands and 276
km (171 miles) north of Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands. Base on all
available data no tsunami is expected and there is no tsunami threat for
the Marianas. –Saipan Tribune
