Increasing volcanic earthquake and inflation of the volcanic edifice observed in Mt. Hakone measured

On 5/3/2015, Japan Meteorological Agency announced the shallow quakes have been increasing since the end of last month, and steam is increasingly splashing from hot springs.

It is confirmed to be volcanic earthquake. It has been increasing since 14:00 of 4/26/2015 and the epicenter is shallow. It occurred 146 times on 4/28/2015 and still happening 69 times until 17:00 on 5/3/2015.

As volcanic quakes increase, inflation of the volcanic edifice is also measured.

Japan Meteorological Agency is going to send a mobile observation team to analyze the volcanic state on 5/4/2015.

Au Mt. Hakone on observe une augmentation des séismes volcaniques et un gonflement du cône volcanique


Le 3 mai2015, la Japan Meteorological Agency a annoncé que les séismes superficiels augmentent depuis la fin du mois dernier et que la vapeur jaillit de plus en plus des sources chaudes.

Il est confirmé que ce sont des séismes volcaniques. Ils augmentent depuis le 26 avril 2015 à 14:00 et leurs épicentres sont superficiels. Il y en a eu 146 le 28 avril 2015 et ensuite 69 jusqu’au 5 mai 17:00.
En même temps que les séismes volcaniques se multiplient, on relève aussi le gonflement du cône volcanique.
La Japan Meteorological Agency va envoyer une équipe d’observation mobile le 4 mai 2015 pour analyser l’état du volcan.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
