This isn't even being reported on the 24 news channel, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/earthp … 188ba0%2C0
Thought this was an interesting article.
"Behind the Hydrogen Explosion at the Fukushima Nuclear Plant"
There is a video of the volcano erupting on this article. The experts seem to think that the eruption could have been triggered by the earthquake, and also that they are predicting an aftershock almost to the same magnitude of the original quake. I agree with the article - hasn't poor Japan suffered enough?

I think that the Mail be a little light on facts there (for a change!), I think this series on eruptions has been going on for a while
Apparently the volcano erupted yesterday, for the second time this year. Don't think that even the Daily Mail would make this up at a time like this, its not like there isn't enough other news coming out of Japan. The volcano may be in south-western Japan, but the whole country is on the same fault line of seismic and volcanic activity
The article does manage to completely ignore that this has been erupting for the past 2-3 months and people had been evacuated as long ago as January! Maybe I'm just being pedantic, but this does seem like rather a big peice of information to make clear!
My understanding is that this volcanic eruption happened a month or so ago. It's nowhere near the earthquake epicentre, on a different island off the south coast I think. That'll be why news 24 isn't picking it up!
It wouldn't be a surprise to see increased volcanic activity though. Incredible picture; looks like the destruction of Soddom and Gomorrah.
I will be surprised if Japan rebuild using uranium again. I just put up a hub on thorium as an alternative, I also have some good news on the fallout.
My heart goes out to our Japanese friends. It takes a hell of a long time to rebuild the infrastructure and as for power supply I can't see them waiting around a year or two to rebuild on this now contaminated site.

Live footage has shown tsunami up to 10 metres hitting the shore of Japan. Earthquake 8.4 100 kms off the coast. This is huge.

If I was in the market for a home for myself and/or my family, the last place I'd want that home to be located would be the side of a volcano that's actually erupted in the past....what's with people who put homes on...

All I see on my news feed is articles written about the earthquake and I personally find that kind of annoying. I don't mean to call anyone out but it seems like what most people do is just read an actual news article...
