Email: Lake Toba Supervolcano On High Alert

“A friend of mine sent me this email and it’s fairly alarming. It involves the world’s largest supervolcano that erupted some time between sixty nine thousand and seventy four thousand years ago causing a six to ten year winter, and possibly even a thousand year cooling period. This was one of the Earth’s largest known eruptions ever and caused the human population of Earth to decline dramatically. The volcano is located at Lake Toba on the island of Sumatra, in Indonesia. Its grand eruption was even bigger than the giant Yellowstone eruption 2.2 million years ago, and threw 2,800 cubic kilometres of volcanic ash and lava into the atmosphere. Indonesia is a very densely populated country, and 50 million people live in Toba’s shadow and would be immediately affected by another event, and in addition it is located only 40km from the Indian Ocean, close to where the recent catastrophic tsunami was generated.”

“Hello Tom,

I am sending you this email in hopes that you will get the word out to the people in our area as well as yours. We are seeing activity from the caldera that we have never seen before. The temperature readings from the lake floor are off the charts from normal and we are seeing a steady increase daily. We are recording a lot of gases being released all over the area even bubbling from the lake floor. You know as well as I do that is a not a good sign. We are all hoping that this activity will cease. But at the same time I have evacuated my own wife and children from the island and so have many others that are in the know.  Just thought I would give you a heads up for we have been corresponding for some time. If this activity does not decrease in the next week or so I will be leaving to join my family.

Best Wishes.”
