    I was reading on Drudge that a huge hole had opened up on one of its glaciers and that steam was coming out, indicating that magma is moving up this stratovolcano.

    There's another thread keeping people updated on the volcano. I can't remember the name but it will be in the first page or two.

    So far there's just seismic activity and steam, no ash and no bulging. I flew today and there weren't any delays or issues.

    Nope, no changes, no eruptions... yet.
    The fly-by yesterday showed that the fumeroles from the '89 eruption are growing - one doubled overnight, apparently - and glaciers and snow are melting, indicating that magma is pushing its way to the summit. The webcam was clear most of the day, with beautiful views, and a little steam plume was the only indication that anything was going on out there. The seismic webicorders show low activity, but well above background levels.

    The AVO website has almost hourly updates on the right hand side of the page. [​IMG]

    We're ok for now... it has NOT erupted, though I wish it would and end the suspense already!!! [​IMG]
