Indonesia’s Sangeang Volcano Erupts Flights Cancelled
“At the first blow of His thundering sword, the mountains and all Nature will tremble in terror, for the disorders and crimes of men have pierced the vault of the heavens. Paris will burn and Marseilles will be engulfed. Several cities will be shaken down and swallowed up by earthquakes. People will believe that all is lost. Nothing will be seen but murder, nothing will be heard but the clash of arms and blasphemy. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
Based on weather conditions, the current ash cloud tracking across Australia is likely to dissipate before it reaches Australia’s eastern airports and major populations centres, Jansons said. Darwin will continue to be impacted until at least Sunday, he added. All flights into and out of Darwin International Airport were cancelled, spokeswoman Virginia Sanders confirmed. Darwin’s proximity to southeast Asia makes it an important Australian gateway to countries such as Indonesia and East Timor and an important hub for oil and natural gas off Australia’s north. Volcanic ash can be extremely dangerous to aircraft and cause engine failure or engine damage. Qantas Airways Ltd said it had cancelled all flights to and from Darwin on Saturday and its budget unit Jetstar had grounded nine international and domestic flights.
Virgin Australia Holdings cancelled all flights into and out of Darwin and all flights into and out of Bali on Saturday evening, spokeswoman Jacqui Abbott confirmed. “Our team of meteorologists are continuing to monitor the situation, in consultation with the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre,” the airline said in a statement. Regional carrier Airnorth, which flies many oil and gas workers to work in the region, also cancelled five flights on Saturday and a Tiger Airways Ltd domestic flight was also grounded.

I protest once more against the very false statements of all those who dare say and write First that I embroidered the Secret; second, against those who state that the Queen Mother did not say to transmit the Secret to all her people."
