Erebus volcano news & activity updates:
Erebus volcano (Antarctica): elevated activity, explosions
Monday Dec 08, 2014 09:27 AM | BY: TOMPFEIFFER
Seismic recording from Mt. Erebus on 5 Dec 2014
The Mount Erebus Volcano Observatory (MEVO) reported yesterday that "it has been an active time for the last 24 hours. There were 6 significant eruptions which show up nicely on the MACZ (short period single vertical component) seismometer.
... There is no knowing if this will continue or was just a one off. It does show that gas is accumulating somewhere at depth and migrates to the lava lake as a big bubble where it bursts explosively sending volcanic bombs shooting above the lava lake and sometimes out onto the crater rim where people may be working."

Photos from Kilauea volcano: lava flowing into the sea
: In the afternoon of 17 Oct, a particularly violent explosion occurred at Anak Krakatau, blasting away a portion of the southern crater rim. A similar event might have been the final trigger for the catastrophic landslide that let the cone collapse and cause a devastating tsunami on 22 Dec 2018.
