Alaska's very volcanically active -- perhaps as active as Hawaii. When we visited the state, we'd intended to do a trip to one of the Aleutian Island volcanoes but it was too active and spewing ash, making it dangerous to fly in the area (ash chokes the airplane engines.) The Pacific Rim is, if you remember, known as "the Ring of Fire"...and has had that name for decades due to the active volcanoes along it.

Interesting, but not terribly surprising. Volcano watchers will have their eyes on this one to see what happens. Quite often you get some lava and smoke and then everything goes quiet for dozens of years.
