The Extinction Protocol

May 30, 2013VANUATUExplosive activity at Vanuatu’s Mt Yasur volcano has increased in recent days. According to observations by the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geohazards department, the activity level of the volcano on Tanna Island is still at alert level 2 but an increase to 3 in the near future is possible. The risk of volcanic projections near the volcano crater remains as thick steam and ash is being emitted from active vents, with ash fall in communities downwind. An increase in activity was noted in early April when bombs were ejected from the volcano to the parking area below the summit cone, and the activity status was raised from 1 to 2. It is recommended that all communities, visitors and travel agents take the current situation seriously. –Radio NZ

Al-Qussayr battle might be taking most of the news coverage but who follows the movement of the SAA, the NDF National Defense Forces, the Syrian Resistance and the Baath Militia will notice the terrorists do not have any safe heaven except where the area they infested is of less strategical importance and was received by some of the locals like the case of Raqqa city and left for a later stage, especially the locals who received the terrorists are more than regretting.
