Yesterday on the Taman Peninsula there was a strong eruption of a mud volcano, which scattered layers of mud to the horizon. However, despite the destruction and some inconvenience, locals are not worried about the incident, as such mud is considered to be curative.
Geologists from Kuban State University previously warned about the possibility of activation of mud volcanoes in the Krasnodar region after an earthquake in southeastern Turkey. And, unfortunately, their assumptions were confirmed.
Today, residents of the Taman Peninsula are posting videos of the consequences of a mud volcano eruption. They claim that such a powerful ejection from the womb of the volcano hasn’t been seen for many years. However, it should be noted that this is not the first case of mud volcano eruption on the Taman Peninsula. In the past, similar events have also occurred, but not with such force.
The most dangerous on Taman was the eruption of the volcano Goreloe peklo in 1794. The sounds of the eruption could be heard up to 50 km away. However, thanks to new technologies and monitoring methods, geologists and scientists can warn about possible dangers in advance.
Mud volcanoes are a special type of volcano that consists of mud, sand and gases rather than lava. They are found in different parts of the world and can be very dangerous. Some of them are capable of throwing mud and rocks up to 10 km away, which can lead to destruction and casualties.
Thus, the eruption of a mud volcano on the Taman Peninsula is a serious event that requires the attention of authorities and scientists. But thanks to new monitoring and warning methods, we can be more prepared for similar events in the future.
