Puebla (Mexico), the volcano Popocatepetl more action!

Puebla (Mexico), April 21 (EFE). – The Government of Mexico insisted Wednesday that for now no order to evacuate the 28,000 villagers living near the volcano Popocatepetl, near the capital of the country, but no ash emissions have stopped for eight consecutive days.

The volcanic alert remains at phase three yellow and is not expected, for now, order the evacuation of the villages near the crater of Popocatepetl, said Interior Minister, Alejandro Poire.

The official explained that for now it works in coordination with the states surrounding the volcano to act if necessary, which would occur only if the alert turns red phase one.

Poire said the Mexican government has all the financial, logistical and human resources to meet any contingency volcanic.

The National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred) reported that in the last 24 hours the volcano has remained the emission of incandescent material that caused the decline of ash in the towns of San Pedro Benito Juarez, Santiago Xalitzintla, San Nicolas de los Ranchos , San Pedro and San Mateo Yancuictlalpan Ozolco.

During the course of this day, the emission of ash also reached the eponymous capital of Puebla state where more than two million inhabitants.

Popocatepetl has produced four exhalations of steam and ash of medium intensity, but subsequently had various segments of high amplitude spasmodic tremor, which lasted for four hours, according to the official volcano monitoring.

Puebla’s government has issued recommendations to the ash fall, that continues for eight days, when volcanic activity intensified.

The authorities call for cover deposits of water to prevent contamination, cleaning debris from roofs, yards and streets and then deposit them in bags.

“The ash can be used for parks, gardens, growing pots, as it is rich in minerals. People should keep animals indoors, never throw the volcanic debris into drains to prevent clogging, cover appliances electronics, to prevent damage, it is also advisable not to perform outdoor activities and keep doors and windows closed, “says an official statement today.

Employers have also issued a series of recommendations to their staff not to suspend activities and prevent the health of employees is not affected, and the operation of their machines.

“We have turned our partners recommendations for employees who work outdoors use a mouth cover, taking care to avoid damage machinery and properly clean the ash to avoid affecting the pipes of factories,” said President Council of Business Organizations (COE) in Puebla, Luis Gerardo Inman Peraldi.

Puebla’s government also said it had not planned to cancel any activity related to the celebration commemorating the 150 anniversary of the Battle of Puebla which has scheduled a parade of 12,000 students.

The solar storm intensifies with extensive blockages in high radio frequency signals

The solar storm is affecting the Earth was intensified on Friday causing some interference to

WASHINGTON, March 9. – The solar storm is affecting the Earth and it intensified on Friday causing some interference in communications before forwarding, as experts warn of more to come.

The solar storm was intense, but remained low during geoefectividad on Thursday as the orientation of the planet’s magnetic field, said Eduardo Araujo, a scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

However, this Friday, “by reversing the vertical component of interplanetary magnetic field, the event geoefectividad increased significantly, and the magnetic storm reached severe levels (G3),” an escalation of five.

The increased intensity has caused “extensive blockages in high radio frequency” and an increase in the margin of error of positioning systems (GPS) and Northern Lights have been seen in Seattle (Washington) and Sheridan (Wyoming ), in America, but have not reported problems with power grids, he said.

The sun goes through regular cycles of activity and every 11 years or so there is a peak in activity in the storms that often occur at times distorted and even cross the Earth’s magnetic field.

Araujo said that we are currently in the upswing of the solar cycle and the maximum is expected to occur sometime in 2013, so that “the activity will continue to increase during this period.”

In fact, the U.S. space agency NASA, has recorded another coronal mass ejection is expected to hit Earth on March 11 and, according to the expert, “predicted a magnetic storm of similar intensity to which we are experiencing now “.

The event is probably the strongest in nearly six years, said Joseph Kunches, a specialist in U.S. space weatherWASHINGTON, March 7. – A  geomagnetic storm is moving from the Sun to the Earth, and its arrival is  scheduled for Thursday which could affect power grids, roads and aircraft navigation systems, space satellite, U.S. experts said.The storm, a cloud of charged particles ejected from the Sun to about 7.2 million miles per hour, had its origin in a pair of solar flares, scientists said.

This is probably the strongest event in nearly six years, and is probably more intense than a similar storm occurred in late January, said Joseph Kunches, a space weather specialist of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA .)

In the view of the solar disturbance Kunches this is a matter of three stages and the first two are already affecting the Earth:

Firstly, two solar flares that were traveling near the speed of light reached Earth on Tuesday night. These flares can cause radio blackouts.

Subsequently, solar radiation reach the Earth’s magnetic field on Wednesday, causing a potential impact on air traffic, especially near the poles, satellites and any astronaut who perform spacewalks. This phase can last several days.

Finally, it is expected that the plasma cloud sent by the coronal mass ejection, which is basically a large part of the Sun’s atmosphere, comes to Earth early Thursday.

This phase can affect power grids, satellites, pipelines and high-precision GPS systems, used by oil drillers, surveyors and some agricultural operations, scientists said.

WASHINGTON, March 5. – A powerful flash in the sun’s surface, stirred by periodic storm season, sent waves of plasma and charged particles reach Earth, said the Space Climate Prediction Center (SWPC, for its acronym in English).

The SWPC, operated by the National Weather Service said the flash X1.1 class, the most powerful solar flare, occurred at 04.13 GMT on Monday.

It is expected that the shock wave plasma and solar particles reach the Earth in two or three days and possibly increase the Northern Lights.

Solar flares affect the Earth’s magnetic field and whose waves have forced move some commercial aircraft flying over the poles whose path will continue to intensify, experts say.

The sun goes through regular cycles of activity and every 11 years or so the activity intensifies and storms occur sometimes deform and even cross the Earth’s magnetic field.

Experts have noted that the current storm season is the strongest recorded since September 2005 and, that causes unique visual effects like the aurora borealis, also it affects aircraft.communications and other.

This also implies the electricity transmission networks, radio communications and satellite systems, although NASA has said that the astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) are not compromised.

In January, scientists detected two flashes in the course of four days followed by shock waves of billions of tons of plasma traveling at about 8 million miles per hour.

Wave caused by the second of the two flashes reached Earth about 34 hours after the flash, instead of two or more days that usually takes for this displacement.
