In early December last year Indonesia's Mt. Semeru volcano erupted suddenly and caused extensive disasters. A shallow earthquake hit southern Pakistan in October in the same year, causing many casualties. In November a 6.4 magnitude quake hit Albania, also causing many casualties. 

An underwater volcano in the Bonin Islands erupted in August, spewing a massive amount of pumice which reached the shores of Okinawa islands two months later, threatening fisheries and tourism industries.

And now this underwater volcano eruption in a magnificent scale.

Are all these events related?
