japan volcanoJapan can’t seem to get a break as after the deadly Tsunami, a volcano erupted.

Everyone remains focused on Japan after the recent Tsunami / Earthquake disaster. Now Japan Volcano has come into the mix as the Shinmoedake Volcano in Southern Japan erupted yesterday morning. While no officials have confirmed that this volcanic eruption was a direct result of the Japan Tsunami / Earthquake, the timing seems a bit too perfect to be a coincidence. As the death toll of the tsunami rises to a feared 10,000 and a looming nuclear disaster threatens Japan, the last thing they needed was a Volcano to erupt.

The Japan Volcano (Shinmoedake) which is approximately 4700 ft. high, sent rock and ash two miles into the air! To me, who has never seen a volcanic eruption live and in person, that sounds pretty insane. Hopefully as relief efforts are underway from the Japan Tsunami /  Earthquake this recent volcanic eruption does not slow down the process of finding all of those lost people. My thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the horrific tsunami and earthquake.

Here is raw video footage of the Japan Volcano live as it happened:
