Scientists: 'Mount Kelud about to blow its top' Non-stop tremors rock the deadly Mount Kelud volcano on Friday, clearly signaling that a powerful eruption could be imminent, according to scientists. Villagers living on the slopes of the volcano however still refuse to flee, hoping that if they keep quiet, the volcano would not erupt. The intensity and frequency of the tremors inside the volcano already exceeded numbers reached in the days and hours before the eruption in 1990. The tremors are an indicator that an underground reservoir of magma is trying to break to the surface.

The first plane It was less than one week before it really happened. I was in Kuala Lumpur to settle some official stuff, and when drinking an iced tea I took some time off in the evening to visit a friend. It was getting late and however we usually only 'speak' to each other on the internet, we had some serious issues as well. Sometimes it's best to make a small joke about accidents and disasters. The people on board of the missing Adam Air plane are having a splendid time diving there, things like that, whether they are fun or not. As long as it doesn't happen in your own direct environment, you can still say things like that. I also told that I always missed such events; earthquakes when I'm away; other disasters beyond my easy reach and other things like that.

Indonesia plane likely spiraled into sea A jetliner with 102 people onboard probably went into a spiral at cruising altitude and plunged into the sea, a top transport safety official said Tuesday, deeming a mid-flight explosion unlikely. Setyo Rahardjo, chief of the National Transportation Safety Board, said the chance is small the Boeing 737 blew up because search and rescue teams have not found burnt wreckage or human remains since New Year's Day, when the Adam Air plane went missing.

Fate of Adam Air plane carrying 102 remains mystery Adam Air Flight KI-574 took off on New Year's Day with 102 people. An hour into what should have been a short hop between islands, the pilot reported heavy winds. Then the plane vanished, sparking a massive search. Thousands of soldiers battled rugged jungle terrain, a fleet of aircraft took to the skies and ships scoured the sea for a third day Thursday, spanning a 28,000-square-mile area - roughly the size of Ireland, or the U.S. state of California.
