In your thread that you referenced, you talk about the movement of the magma plumes maybe causing a weakening of the earths magnetic field. But I've read that;
Could it not be that the recent CME, has manipulated the magnetic field, and this is then forcing the movement of magma into the areas of magnetic field weakness? Maybe that could explain the magma plumes and increased activity of these various volcanoes.
Slamet volcano (Central Java, Indonesia): eruption increases, powerful strombolian explosions
Activity at the volcano has increased and VSI raised the alert level to "siaga", 3 on a scale of 1-4. The mild strombolian activity which had been going on for months at the volcano has become more and more intense since the beginning of September. Some explosions in the past days have been strong enough to eject incandescent material to all over the summit cone of the volcano.
Kilauea volcano update: Lava slows, misses first homes for now
"Between September 10 and 12, the June 27th flow advanced north-northeastward at an average rate of 250 m/day (820 ft/day). By the afternoon of September 12, the flow had advanced approximately 14.9 km (9.3 miles) straight-line distance from the vent, or to within 170 m (560 ft) of the boundary between the Wao Kele o Puna Forest Reserve and the northwest corner of Kaohe Homesteads. At the average rate of advancement of 250 m/day (820 ft/day) since September 10, we project that lava could flow from its current location into the northwest part of Kaohe Homesteads within a day, and to the Pāhoa Village Road (government road) in Pāhoa within 20 days" if there are no major changes.

What is the worse case scenario? Would the volcano shoot out one side, like St. Helens, or blow upwards? When was the last time this volcano exploded, and is there any timeline that it is adhered to in the past? Thanks for the updates.

Is Rainier the one that can take out small towns all the way out to the bay or is that Hood? I remember seeing how they do drills for it is erupts, but there are several cities in the path of mudflows that would only have 15 to 20 minutes tops to get to high ground if it goes. NOT GOOD. I hope I'm thinking about Hood.

Maybe the warm snap allowed the glacier to do some sliding?

If they could only plumb into it with an oil drilling platform like they are doing at Campi flegrei in Italy, to that newly discovered volcano that is like Yellowstone but not as big.
Now hopefully they can safely drill into this lava tube 2 miles down at Campi flegrei and not cause an eruption.
