May sky gazers claim as the approach of the most expected planet x or nibirue while the other attribute the movement of the comet Elenin which is approaching the earth with a rendez-vous on the 1st of September 2011, the new year of Ethiopia.. Geologically the horn of Africa is in movement since millions of years for the opening of the new ocean by splitting the region for creating a new ocean. The government of the dictatorial regimes of Ethiopia continues his project of mega dams on these dynamic fault lines even seen the volcanoes and the continues earthquakes . this will menace not only the local inhabitants by immediate danger but will have a direct consequences on Sudan and Egyptian populations.

A moderate earthquake struck near the Nabro volcano in Eritrea Friday, five days after the stratovolcano first sent an ash plume more than 15km into the air.
Volcanic activity decreased overnight but a 5.5 magnitude earthquake on Friday morning could lead to a further increase in volcanic activity. Images from sat24 , however, show what appears to be a much smaller plume being omitted from the volcano.
Volcanic activity has increased at the Nabro volcano in Eritrea, just four days after the stratovolcano sent an ash plume more than 15km into the air.
The ash drifted westnorthwest over Sudan Thursday evening threatening to bring further disruption to air traffic in the east Africa region.
Sunday night’s eruption led to some flight cancellations in neighbouring Sudan, Djibouti and Ethiopia, and saw a massive ash plume being carried as far away as Saudi Arabia, Israel, Turkmenistan, the Central African Republic and Egypt.
The below MODIS Terra 1km True Colour satellite image, captured Thursday afternoon, shows the ash plume drifting hundreds of kilometres west of Nabro.
