Stumbled across this Youtube video.
Thought you might find it interesting or entertaining crazy

NO PERSON is 'in trouble' in this vid, it is a bag of rubbish falling into the crater.

If you're interested in current volcanic activity, I thought I'd drop in a couple of links here and there in this thread which are interesting.

This one is about Costa Rico's Rincon de la Vieja volcano , which has now been deemed out of bounds for visitors due to increased activity.

Yeh...it is quite an intreging video. At first you feel it may just leave a 'hole' in the crust, but then it takes off. Don't think I would have stood there for too long, it was getting quite 'angry' crazy

I happened across this interesting newspaper article from 28th September,1901, where Captain Ramselins, master of the barquentine, Joseph L. Eviston, spotted what he thought was a volcanic eruption (of sorts) in Bass Strait, off Victoria.
The text in the section (right), which can be enlarged for easier reading, is interesting.

"Volcano in Bass Strait"

Hey ozone doug...I have found myself reading the other news articles on these pages. Interesting and sometimes entertaining reading the writing/reporting styles of those days. I could get engrossed in those old newspapers grin

Here's a link to a terrific site, which gives some quality updates on Voclano 'happenings' around the world.

Volcano Watch - EP

Some of the earthquake activity around the planet is directly affected by the rumblings of various volcanoes. Some volcanoes, previously thought to be dormant/extict or 'sleeping' are showing signs of renewed activity - even in small doses.

First Tongariro (N.Z.) eruption in over 100 years

LATEST: A larger, molten eruption is possible if volcanic activity continues at Mt Tongariro.

The volcano rumbled into life at 11.50pm last night, sending ash and rock a kilometre into the air, prompting a potential threat warning for central North Island regions.

The "small scale" eruption was a total surprise, GNS Science said.

GNS scientist Brad Scott said there was strong seismic activity for about 15 to 20 minutes after the eruption, however in the 24 hours prior and hours since, there had not been any significant activity.

The eruption was purely driven by the hydrothermal system, generating steam rather than molten lava, Scott said at a briefing this morning.

Hydrothermal eruptions tended to recur and could escalate into more larger and energetic molten eruptions which spewed out lava and rocks, he said.

GNS was monitoring the activity on the mountain.

Only local fights being disrupted, international flights unaffected. The ash cloud is expected to dissapate later today.

Getting texts from family on east coast of the north island, a fair way from the mountain, to say they are being covered in fine layer of ash.

If you are ever in Vanuatu,take the time and grab the prop over to Tanna island. The Yasur volcanoe is fully accessible. It is a mind blowing experience.

Scientists find dome of ‘violent’ submarine volcano off the coast of Baja, California

There are alot of interesting articles regarding volcanoes 'around' at the moment, which may not be showing up in the 'mainstream' media. The above link/article is quite a curious one.

Cheers, Duck.

Here's a fascinating and shocked video about the 1944 eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
It must have been terrifying for the locals.

There is a bit of SO2 being released... It is sub-stratospheric (just). Be interesting if this is a prelude to something bigger.
