I predicted this eruption over a week ago. USGS AVO and HVO have emails records to verify my prediction. Mahalo.

Once when I was in Taupo I went into the centre that shows what happens to the planet in eruptions and earthquakes.From what I recall White Island, Lake Taupo and the 3 mountains including Tongariro are all connected underground and could actually set off a chain of events between them. I wouldn't be so sure this was a one off and a coincidence that Tongariro and White Island rumbled around the same time last night, I would take it a bit moreseriously than that.

Funny Guy - I agree, mother nature is getting pretty angry and I think we haven't seen the big event yet. By the way things are going in this country you won't be able to say where this big event will take place but it will come. The ground in this country has been to unsettled for too long now so there is a biggie brewing for sure and alot of us believe that. As for the 21st of December those who believe that is the end should start giving all their belongings and money to those who don't believe because if you are that sure the end is near then why keep it all? I think we will have a change in consiousness and maybe start to really care about the world and everyone in it. The world isn't going to end and I don't think it is the rising of Jesus either, just a new faze for human beings. The natural disasters happening everywhere in the world are just the planet reshaping to cope with all the overloaded areas so we don't fall off our axis totally. Argh the end is near.............Not.
