A magnitude 2.6 earthquake occurred in Kyushu, Japan at the Ibusuku volcano 18 hours ago.

Pyroclastic flows from Aleutian Islands
In Alaska, volcano erupts 36 times in 4 Months in Bogoslof Island, located in the Bering Sea north of Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, has nearly tripled in size due to pyroclastic fall and flow deposits. Pyroclastic flows are one of the most dangerous of volcanic phenomenon, according to the University of California at Santa Barbara’s Volcano Information Center. They are hurricanes of hot gasses and volcanic particles.
A comment submitted to classify quake intensity of 4.5 magnitude in Burhan, Pakistan “It didn’t feel like and earthquake at all as I have experienced many earthquakes. It was not the rocker type. It was more like a sonic boom but a tremendous one. The shock waves felt like they came from like 315 degrees northwest and from the sky. I was in a workshop which has a reinforced concrete slab roof. It literally trembled like any glass windows would tremble by a sonic boom. I am still in doubt if it was an earthquake. It seems more likely to me a huge sonic boom created by some meteor etc.”
