Is a larger explosive volcanic blast coming at Nishinoshima volcanic island in Japan?
The newest flyover video of Nishinoshima, released by the Japanese Coast Guard, shows major sulfur deposits around the main crater of the new volcanic island. Large amounts of sulfur dioxide gas must be the culprit behind the building yellow stains on the flanks of the cone.
This yellowish buildup is a new development over the past few months since the last flyover of the area. In light of the other building threat of large eruption in South Japan (at Sakurajima Volcano), this large buildup of sulfur must be made note of now.
The deposits are large enough to be visible from high above, and miles away.
The new volcanic island appeared out of the sea just a few years ago, and has grown rapidly over the past year, spreading out over a mile in width.
Nishinoshima Volcano is located approximately 500 miles South of Tokyo Japan (on the Izu trench).
