Recent Eruption Report by Dutchsinse put out a forecast regarding the uptick in Volcanic Eruptions happening in unexpected places. A large eruption is currently taking place in the Galapagos Islands (South America) at Wolf Island volcano.
Here is a Rough handcam video of a nearby flyover of this volcano from late last night (May 25, 2015).
A video is making the rounds as released by the Government of Ecuador (shaky handcam video) of a private aircraft flyby of Wolf Volcano in the Galapagos Islands.
This volcano erupted unexpectedly yesterday (May 25, 2015), after being silent since 1982.
After 33 years, a full eruption is now taking place.

Here is the location of the volcano in question, on the Island of Isabela, located off the coast of South America / Ecuador.
We were watching for new volcanic eruptions to take place in Central America near Costa Rica, into Colombia.

New Eruption Started in the Galapagos Islands
“Last night saw the start of a new eruption in the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador.
Wolf, on the island of Isabela, erupted for the first time since 1982, producing both lava fountains and lava flows (typical of what is to be expected from a shield volcano like this).
The images so far show a fairly large volcanic plume (looks to be mainly steam and volcanic gases) as well. Not a lot of details are available right now, but some great shots of the eruption are circulating on Twitter and Instagram. Be sure to check out these images by Diego Paredes.
- The plume was likely as tall as 15 kilometers (50,000 feet) on the morning on May 25. The initial plume height looks to have been 10 kilometers (35,000 feet).
- The eruption is coming from a new fissure on the southeast flanks of Wolf. Confirmed by satellite and ground observations.
- Some of the settlements on Isabela may get minor ash fall from the plume.
- The explosions from the start of the eruption were captured on the nearest seismometer (20 km away)”
With Dutchsinse and Tatoott1009 current prediction rate, we need to keep an eye on things to come. They seem to be right on the money with these forecasts. No fear just be prepared. Its never a bad idea to be ready in case of disaster.
