Earache and a Volcano’s Atmospheric Pressure


As we all know by now Mauna Loa volcano on the island of Hawaii has erupted.

A woman had reported 2 weeks prior to the eruption of Mauna Loa volcano she had been having earaches. She said she hadn’t had an earache in years. She reported not having had one since the day of the eruption.

Atmospheric pressure waves are a notable phenomenon associated with explosive volcanic eruptions.
