Update: according to news sources, the eruption DID take place and an ash plume rose to a reported height of about 5 miles (8 km) into the sky. A weather service flight advisory was issued for pilots for an area 20 miles east and west of the volcano and about 50 miles north.
As the AVO reports a few minutes ago, "at 4:44 a.m. (AST) this morning, AVO began recording seismic signals interpreted as explosions at the summit of Augustine Volcano that likely mark the onset of an eruption. The current activity may be emitting ash, steam, and volcanic gases." The color code for Augustine has been raised to RED.
For more details and current information, please visit the Augustine page at the AVO.

The tours this year on Santorini are now over, too, with lots of fun and great company as well. Thanks to all participants!
Before we send out our formal newsletter, when the programs for 2006 are completed, a quick notice to announce that Tom will offer a new, 12-days tour / expedition to the Rift Valley including Lengai volcano in Feb. and summer 2006, Costa Rica in late March and (probably) July 2006. As well, Tobias (who is right now touring in the Saronic Gulf) awaits with a new, exciting program on Milos, a wonderful, volcanic island in Greece! Other new or recently developped programs include Nisyros (Greece) and the Eifel region in Germany (details will come soon).
Greetings from Athens! Tom
