Let’s see: Deadly pandemic escapes from a Chinese bioweaponry research lab, swarms of locusts cover Africa and, meanwhile, a volcano erupts:
The Indonesian volcano Anak Krakatau erupted Friday, spewing a large plume of ash 9 miles into the air.Not saying it’s a sign of the Apocalypse but . . . OF COURSE it’s a sign of the Apocalypse. Repent, sinners. The end is nigh upon us.
At approximately 11 p.m. local time, the volcano’s loud eruption was reportedly heard by people in Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta, located more than 90 miles away. Images taken from a webcam near the area show lava flowing from the volcano.
The strong eruption is believed to be the most forceful since December 2018, when it produced a deadly tsunami that killed over 400 people on the coasts of southeastern Sumatra and western Java.
Anak Krakatau, which translates to “the child of Krakatoa,” was formed after Krakatoa erupted in 1883 with a massive explosion 10,000 times more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. The eruption killed approximately 36,000 people, destroyed hundreds of villages, and ash traveled as far as Europe. Later studies show that eruption likely lowered global temperatures for years.
La erupción del #Krakatoa es algo que si bien no pasaba desde el siglo XIX, era de esperarse. Sin embargo, hay que resaltar que en las últimas horas, son 4 los volcanes en Indonesia que han estado con actividad: Krakatoa, Semeru, Monte Merapi y Tambora. pic.twitter.com/v1iphZ11QG— José Parra (@masqueuncoach) April 11, 2020
I'm not saying I believe that the WuFlu escaped from China's germ warfare laboratory, conveniently located within one mile of Wuhan's famous wet markets (the better to buy bats and pangolins, I suppose), but let's just say I don't necessarily disbelieve it either. If a deadly plague were to appear to originate in in Frederick, MD, site of Fort Detrick, the US's bio-warfare "defense" laboratory, I'd be suspicious too.
