Another volcano have is on the verge of a larger eruption is Nyiragongo in the DR of the Congo. Reports of “by day, the air in the city is thick with volcanic dust. By night …the red glow of burning lava trickling out of the summit of the nearest volcano [Nyiragongo]” Additionally, one of the scientists at the Goma Volcano Observatory reports that “significantly increased temperatures had been recorded around Mount Nyiragongo recently and a larger than usual cloud of volcanic dust was being thrown into the skies“.

The erratic behavior of Llaima (in spanish) has government officials in Chile on edge.

A veritable treasure trove of volcanic tidbits, including new undersea eruptions discovered, the end of the eruption in the Galapagos, more Aleutian noise, an excellent interactive of Indonesian volcanism and boarding down an active volcanism (a.k.a., thinning the gene pool).
