I visited the area a number of years ago. Most impressive. Visit Crater Lake and realise that it was a similar mountain before it blew several 1000s of feet of its top off.

Crater Lake, aka Mt Mazama, is a fascinating case study. The caldera walls show quite a number of eruptive conduits.

An amazing amount of eruptive history is described based on the layers of ejecta. The Pacific Northwest is fortunate that the 1980 St Helens eruption did not emulate the Mazama blowout.

La Soufrière on St. Vincent is erupting.
The website of the local monitoring agency is apparently overloaded.

Yeah. We're 190 km to the east of Saint Vincent, and it is so dark it is as if it is dusk.

The cats are freaking out! So are some of the humans...

Yes, you're getting the volcanic ash - but not the pyroclastic flows!

According to the Beeb "Local media have also reported increased activity from Mount Pelee on the island of Martinique, north of St Vincent."

Those with a knowledge of history might look upon that with interest.

Nope. I immigrated in 2001.

But friends of mine were. It was, reportedly, amazingly bad!
