29 Oct 10 - Here are the eight where the status has been
increased to Level II:
Mount Sinabung, in Karo, North Sumatera
Mount Talang, Solok, West Sumatera
Mount Anak Krakatau, Lampung (Child of Krakatau Volcano)
Mount Papandayan, Garut, West Java
Mount Slamet, Tegal, Central Java
Mount Dieng, Wonosobo, Central Java
Mount Semeru, Lumajang, East Java
Mount Bromo, Probolinggo, East Java
Level II status or “Caution” means there is increasing activity
above normal level and that there has been seismic activity.
And here are two more:
29 Oct 10 - Increased activity is also building up at the Galunggung volcano in
Tasikmalaya, West Java. Heri Supartono, head of the Galunggung monitoring post,
said that the volcano had triggered 34 earthquakes this month.
“In September, there were only four volcanic earthquakes,” Heri said.
The 2,167-meter high volcano has erupted three times between 1822 and 1983.
Another volcano, Dempo, at Pagaralam, South Sumatra, also showed signs of
“There have been tens of volcanic or tectonic earthquakes,” Slamet, the head of
Dempo monitoring post, told state news agency Antara on Friday.

Why do I keep mentioning volcanoes?
Because ice ages
correlate with huge increases in volcanic activity.
Here's a quote from Not by Fire but by Ice:
"Polarity reversals, equinoctial precession, and ice
ages, all march to the same drummer. As do extinctions,
new species appearance, volcanism, and rising land. Toss
in the specter of massive floods, 30-story tsunami
(tsunami is both singular and plural), and radioactivity
falling on your head, and you've got the picture."
Just look at the last three magnetic reversals (kya stands for
thousands of years ago):
34 kya - Lake Mungo magnetic reversal. Intensive
23 kya - Mono Lake magnetic reversal. Major volcanism.
The Mono Lake event actually straddles a layer of ash (Liddicoat).
11.5 kya - Gothenburg magnetic reversal. Worldwide
volcanism (Lamb). Mexican volcanism
dated at 11,580
70 years (Street-Perrott). Germany=s
West Eiffel fields erupt (Lamb). Mount St. Helens ash
interlayered with Lake Missoula flood deposits,
indicating simultaneous events (Chernicoff). Glacier
Peak, Washington, erupts (Dawson). Alaskan volcanism of
tremendous proportions. In Alaska and Siberia, ash lies
interspersed through the piles of mammoth bones
themselves. (Hibben). Mt. Katla, Iceland, erupts
I fear that we are seeing a similar increase in volcanic activity
