This just popped up on the newswire:

"A volcano erupted on the Indian Ocean Comoros islands Sunday, forcing hundreds of villagers to flee in fear of poison gas as the crater spewed ash and flung boulders over molten lava, witnesses said.


Darkness enveloped homes near the summit of Mount Karthala as black rain pounded the mountainside, sparking panic among residents afraid of the kind of noxious fumes that seeped from the volcano a century ago, killing 17 people.
"Villagers are in total darkness, gritty rain is falling and visibility is zero," a resident from the village of Idjinkoundzi on the western flank of Mount Karthala, who gave his name as Charif, told Reuters by telephone. "

They should make a list of volcanos which is not in any danger of erupting right now, all the others apparently are...

Yes, we live in interesting times indeed...
