    Vanuatu orders the evacuation of entire island as Monaro volcano may blow



    Vanuatu has ordered the evacuation of an entire island home to 11,000 people as an erupting volcano threatened to explode.

    Boats will spend the next week ferrying residents off Ambae where the Monaro volcano spewed lava, smoke, and ash since Sunday.

    More than half the island's population within 6.5km of the crater already fled to other parts of Ambae, but the government decided they could risk anyone's lives.

    Thanks Meatpie. Hadn't heard about that one, but Mount Agung on Bali is on very high alert

    And Katla in Iceland has been on intermittent alert for a while now, though the threat level seems to have dropped this month. Katla eruptions can vary from minor to very big indeed - one at 10.600 BP produced ashfalls which can still be detected in Norway, Denmark and Scotland.

    And look who's having a seismic swarm moment now - Vesuvius

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...esuvius-erupts

    Book your holiday now to Naples or Pompeii now (just don't try to fly from Gatwick!) for the chance to have a plaster cast of your body in pugilistic mode displayed in a museum for the next 2000 years - or have your wicked way with the 79AD corpses while everyone else is evacuated to Sardinia.

    Actually I'd guess it's fairly low probability - a lot of earthquake swarms are false alarms, and if there is an eruption brewing there's no particular reason to expect a really big one.

    I'll just bet Sardinia is excited by the prospect of three-million Pompeiians moving in.
