    Phreatic eruption? There does not seem to have been much warning from seismic activity.

    I hope our New Zealanders are safe. I see @adrian009 is online, so he's accounted for.

    I'm sure they will be. The locals don't usually do these tours and the chances are minuscule anyway.

    It is terrible news. I live about a thousand miles away from the blast.

    The article suggests that increased activity was noticed as long ago as June.

    I'm not sure what to make of that, at least in the sense of culpability. But let's face it. The sort of people who go strolling across a volcano tend to win Darwin Awards anyway.
